Editorial Reviews

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. Transferred from the mean-streets of New York City to a teeming alien planet halfway across the galaxy, veteran police detective Patrick Brogan (Ted Shackelford, Dallas) and his rookie partner (Rob Youngblood, NYPD Blue, Sliders) struggle to adapt to their exotic new beat. Tangling with otherworldly outlaws in one deadly close encounter after another, the officers fight to bring intergalactic law and order to a mind-bending realm where the bad guy’s aren’t just bad… they aren’t even human! Episodes: Protect and Survive, Enforcer, Body and Soul, Double Duty, The Snake, Time to Kill, Deadline, Seek and Destroy, The Power, Illegal, Divided We Stand, Two against the Rock, Takeover, Predator and Prey, The Witness, Hate Street, Friends, Smelter Skelter, Flash, The Fire Within: Part 1, The Fire Within: Part 2, The Forever Beetle, Deathwatch: Part 1, Deathwatch: Part 2

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.

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.

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!!!

If the name Gerry Anderson means anything to you at all, it's likely the first science fiction work of his to spring to mind would be Space: 1999; a series credited as a cornerstone in setting the science fiction television precedent. If not for Space: 1999 or UFO, perhaps the name may be familiar to you on account of his mastery of marionettes as witnessed in shows like Stingray or Thunderbirds ("Supermarionation").

Regardless of whether or not you are familiar with the British publisher, producer, director and writer's works, it turns out that while audiences were swooning to Babylon 5 and Star Trek: Deep Space 9 in the mid 90's, Mr. Anderson was at it again with his own unique science fiction vision in Space Precinct 2040.

Called a blending of space opera and police procedural drama, SP 2040 was the result of lessons and techniques Anderson had acquired along the way and actually earns a spot as one of the highest-budgeted shows he ever produced. It involved live actors, miniatures, pyrotechnics and perhaps most interestingly, actors wearing complex make-up that included elements of puppetry. In fact, it is said that several of the production techniques would serve as precursors to the approach used in 1999's Farscape.

The story of Space Precinct takes place in the year 2040 and features Ted Shackelford as former NYPD detective Patrick Brogan, now a lieutenant with the Demeter City police force on the planet Altor in the Epsilon Erandi system and his partner Jack Haldane (played by Rob Youngblood).

They, with a host of other interstellar officers, are out to protect the law-abiding citizens of Demeter City; a rough neighborhood rife with planetary felons, galactic gangs and alien extortionists.
