5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection for an excellent series February 15, 2006
I am pleased beyond words that Poltergeist: the Legacy has finally found its way onto DVD. This collection records all 21 episodes from the first season in beautiful format, with language and subtitle options. There are no extra features (like commentaries or scene selections), except for Sci Fi and horror previews, but the episodes stand for themselvs. Well acted with complex characterizations that make you really *care* about the people you're watching, and excellect special effects to complement and enhance the intriguing plots. This remarkable series has been neglected for too long; I'm extremely relieved that this has been released, and only hope the remaining seasons will soon follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, but where is Season 2? December 1, 2007
Ah, P:tL. A highly underrated and overlooked show. While at times the actors were directed above the top, and there is a certain feeling of melodrama to be sure, the cast is unquestionably talented and its members are a pleasure to watch. The main theme music is truly delicious, the plots are intriguing and create their own feel of history coming back to haunt us, and the characters are quite engaging and well-drawn. One of the main draws to watch the next episode, in fact, is to see what will happen to those people in their peculiar little society. How does a young priest conquer the lusts which keep coming back to haunt him? How does a former soldier deal with emotions long suppressed within him? How does a mother protect her child in the face of dangers she never wanted to know existed? How does a woman, and a scholar, turn book knowledge into real-life strength? How does a son cope with his father's dark legacy? And what roles do these people all play in each others' lives? The answer is often more intriguing than you would guess. How do these remarkable individuals, skeptics and believers alike, deal with knowing the truth about what lives in the darkness and haunts humankind?

However, later seasons of P:tL were tighter, and much more worth the craving for resurrection via DVD. Since the show is no longer really on television, MGM would do quite well to bring us new seasons of this cult classic. I would gladly buy them all--and so would many people who witnessed Martin Cummins' talent on Dark Angel. I swear, he's easily as good on this show as that one--and this time, he's playing a good guy, if a troubled one. Even better, like all the male characters on the show, he has a sensitive, human side without ever looking weak or whiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome series!!! January 24, 2006
I am not writing a review for this DVD set, although after I purchase it I may do so to comment on the quality and special features. But just so everyone knows, I definitely recommend getting this set,it truly is a must-have! I religiously watched every show when it aired on TV in 1996. It was so well-written and the acting was just perfect. (They couldn't have picked a more fitting cast) and there was always a point to the plot. Even though the storyline is about these members of a (secret) group fighting evil in the world (its not the hackneyed, fighting evil type, it really is tastefully done) it blends elements of sci-fi, horror, suspense, and it has supernatural components of history. (The special effects were also done very well) If you're not normally into that sort of thing, then this series would definitely atleast raise your interests. And if you are, you must already know about this awesome show or atleast have heard about it. It was great from the beginning to end, it couldn't have been better written and I wished they continued it longer. And for the people who didn't know, the creators who thought up of The Outer Limits (the new series) were the same creators for Poltergeist The Legacy. (I liked TOL also, but I think that this show far outshines that one) I had been waiting almost forever for this series to come out on DVD and now its finally here=)

5.0 out of 5 stars About time February 9, 2006
It's about time as I have worn out my VHS tapes! This is one of the best shows that ever hit TV. It's a shame it only lasted 4 seasons, once the SciFi network bought the rights it was doomed. I can only hope that the remaining season are released soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars at last! at least season 1 August 5, 2007
Verified Purchase
i got into legacy late and was never able to capture on vhs all the shows. i've been waiting years, decades? for this to show up. the name of the series is misleading, there is only one time i think an actual poltergeist shows up, and may lead people to think its mindless horror. its a very good show about a team (in a world organization) who find evil and fight against it. each show is basically a different 'enemy' entirely, and sometimes its not actually an enemy but a spirit only needing to rest. the characters are great and there is personal change and involvement and spooky enough for any tastes without being 'horror show'. i just keep hoping now that we'll get season two soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly good series April 11, 2006
To be honest, I'd barely even heard of this show before I bought the series on DVD. The thing is, I'm a huge fan of the movie trilogy "Poltergeist." So, seeing this at the store - with the same lettering/script as the movies - I thought, hey this must be somewhat related. It wasn't....or at least nothing beyond dealing with the supernatural. The funny thing was - this series actually drew me in...it took a couple of episodes but it actually really caught my attention. The character development was very good - and I felt compelled to keep watching within a matter of days. Many of the episodes were actually very freaky for television show horror - a pleasant surprise too. Anyways, the point is, I unexpectedly found a show in which I now care about the characters and can't wait to see what happens in future seasons - and it was done all on accident. I will definitely buy the second season if and when it is released.
