From sci-fi legend Gerry Anderson (Space 1999, Thunderbirds, UFO), this special-effects-filled series chronicles the adventures of two cops from Earth battling a rogue’s gallery of alien criminals in the year 2040.

When it comes to Gerry Anderson's classic hits such as "Thunderbirds" and "Space: 1999", for 40 years, fans have followed every Anderson-related release and in the 1990's, there was a resurgence of interest towards Anderson's work and in1994-1995, the British sci-fi series "Space Precinct" was shown on BBC Two and later syndicated in North America and the SyFy Channel. The series originally had a pilot (starring different characters) back in 1983 known as "Space Police".

The series takes place in 2040 and stars Ted Shackelford ("Knots Landing", "Another World") as Patrick Brogan, a former NYPD detective who joins the Demeter City Police force (Precinct 88) in the planet Altor. As the new lieutenant, Brogan balances his life as a husband and father to his family while adjusting to his new life in another planet and working alongside his partner Jack Haldane (played by Rob Youngblood) and Officer Jane Castle (played by Simone Bendix) investigating various crimes.

While the primary characters are human, many of the other characters are aliens who are part of the police force or are part of organized crime. In planet Altor, humans and aliens co-exist.

Here is a basic synopsis of each episode featured in this DVD set:

DISC 1:

* EPISODE 1: Protect and Survive - Brogan and Haldane must protect a crooked business executive named Armand loyster.
* EPISODE 2: Enforcer - Someone is killing people in Demeter City with their hearts shredded but no single mark on their bodies.
* EPISODE 3: Body and Soul - Brogan and his son visit a space probe lost in space and find a dead body.
* EPISODE 4: Double Duty - A drug war is taking place in Demeter City and an assassin is killing the competition.

Space Precinct is a show that inspires me to capslock and squee and flail. It has everything a good cheesy cop show should have: the gruff boss who lets them get away with everything, the "I heard everything you said" CPR moments, the waiting by the radio to hear if so-and-so really bought it in that explosion, the car chases, the embarrassing afterschool special-style morals about drugs, the undercover missions that involve very little clothing, or joining a cult, or possibly being BRAINWASHED AND EVIL OH NO! *ahem*

But it's not just a cop show, it's a cop show IN SPACE, and the sci-fi elements are used better than I've ever seen in this genre. The aliens, in particular, actually look alien. There are some of the so-called "nose aliens" a la Star Trek, but the main races have their facial features done with puppetry, which makes them fabulously non-human looking while still being fully expressive. (Surprisingly, given the subject matter and the level of cheesiness, Space Precinct rarely descends into Men In Rubber Suits territory.)

And the alien location is used for maximum comedic effect: alien pizzas with horrible toppings delivered by parodic alien delivery guys on flying bikes, alien blind dates with unexpected biology, flying cop cars that look suspiciously like they were lifted from a 1980s US cop show, the bellowing Ethnic Stereotype boss who's neither Irish nor black but instead a googly-eyed alien, godawful intentionlally absurd Future Slang, wacky alien reproductive processes and childrearing techniques...

The main human characters are cops who've transfered from New York to an alien planet known for its tough streets. For the two of them, the show cast genuine Americans with genuine American accents, which was a very good idea.

I remember staying up some weekends just to make sure the show was coming on. It got bounced around the scehdule on one of the independent stations here in New York City. I did manage to videotape a few episodes. It's fluffy, with elements of camp but the characters are great and fleshed out which you usually don't get in a show like this. There are those nice elements here that you have in the tv Alien Nation show with the aliens having completely different anatomical elements that the humans haven't learned yet and of course the aliens eat foods we wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole--which adds to the veracity of the show. I highly recommend this show and I'm waaay past the age the show was created for--kids. Adult sci-fi fans will really like it. I missed the first dvd set they had put out some years back and I'm glad they brought it back again!!!

It's about time! This series, although short, is another splendid work from Gerry Anderson. Career critics will beat it up bad as being junk, but what do they know. Real Sci-Fi fans know a good thing when they see it, and Space Precinct is one show that you just have to see to appreciate. It has that Gerry Anderson flair that only he could pull off. Do yourself a favor and click that "add to cart" button now!

Okay first of all 5 stars = if you are like me and skim reviews in helping you to decide about stuff you're on the fence about - I am going to explain myself ahead of time so you cannot later say "why did she say it was 5 stars":

This is NOT for everyone. It is for me. I'm by no means a uber sci-fi geek. I roll my eyes when my bf mentions Star Trek or Star Wars. I just don't care. Space shows, aliens, blah blah blah. Whatever. Most sci-fi stuff doesn't interest me at all. There are a few exceptions to the rule. I like comedic sci-fi. I like the cutesy aliens (Yoda) - hey I said I'm a she, apparently a stereotypical one. And for some reason I love love love Gerry Anderson stuff. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to call his shows "campy" but they're not overly serious even when they have somewhat serious story lines for the characters in them. It's not comedic. It just is. Simple yet you can tell the people involved really put a lot of heart into it. They made sure you knew the characters, even some of the aliens (who all looked alike at first) all got very distinct looks as time went on. The romances are alway cheesy but are not the main stories.

It's not the puppets of the earlier Anderson shows (Supercar, Stingray, Thunderbirds, etc) but it definitely has that feel of an Anderson show. You know the feel - just a bit in the future with today's technology (well today's or lesser) but hey the vehicles are ahead of us anyway! In this case as there are actual human actors onscreen and you'll also find some of them get recycled in multiple roles. Cars that blow up soon at they bump a building just barely but the cop cars can take anything and not get a scratch.

They definitely progressed, even in a one year show.
