Bent steel.
Over all, I HIGHLY recommend this to any 'Old School' fans out there that love to relive the wonder, fun and great shows we grew up with.

For most everyone else, it's probably not worth owning.

Originally titled "The Young Sentinels" [changing its name to "Space Sentinels" midseason to emphasize their space background], the 1977-78 NBC Saturday morning series "Space Sentinels" featured the culturally diverse immortal heroes Hercules, Nordic strongman ("Blackstar's" George DiCenzo); Astrea, beautiful African American shapeshifter; and Mercury, swift Asian American speedster; The trio, who had been taken from Earth centuries ago then endowed and trained in their special powers by sentient supercomputer Sentinel One, protected the Earth and the galaxy from an assortment of aliens and time-travelers.

The following season in the fall of 1978, Hercules returned to the superhero business on a different network and with a different team. "The Freedom Force," one of seven segments from CBS's ninety-minute "Tarzan and the Super 7" show featured The Valley of Time, home of the Freedom Force: Isis, goddess of the elements ("Flash Gordon's" Diane Pershing); Hercules, the world's mightiest man (now voiced by Bob Denison); Merlin, master of magic; Sinbad, hero of the seven seas; and Super Samurai, giant of justice; all champions of freedom who battled fantasy-driven mythological foes.

Join them now on adventures through time and fantasy with "Space Sentinels & The Freedom Force - The Complete Series!" This 2-disc collection features all 13 episodes of "Space Sentinels," and all 5 episodes of "The Freedom Force," plus the following Special Features:

* Interview with creators Lou Scheimer, Buzz Dixon, Darrel McNeil, Michael Reaves, Robert Kline and David Wise.

Space Sentinels was created by Filmation and appeared on network television as a Saturday morning cartoon in the late 1970's, comprised of 13 episodes. Three main characters, Hercules, Astrea and Mercury go on various adventures on Earth and sometimes in space. On the spaceship resides a sentient computer acting as an advisor known as Sentinel One and a little robot that borders on a traditional Filmation mascot, Maintenance Operator or simply MO. The original title was called Young Sentinels and the characters sometimes introduce themselves as Young Sentinels in the dialogue. The voice acting is slightly more diverse-there are three main actors doing most of the voices, but in this particular series, Filmation added others without crediting them specifically, such as the standard Lou and Erika Scheimer and then some other actors who were used irregularly such as Linda Gary, Diane Pershing and even Ted Cassidy ("The Time Traveler"). Other items that made this show unique for its time (1977) was the multi-ethnic cast (Mercury was of Asian ethnicity), and having a African/American woman as the leader. This is a very brief run down of each Space Sentinels episode.

MORPHEUS: THE SINISTER SENTINEL
Another sentinel with an evil alignment and who has the power of Astrea, Hercules and Mercury combined, comes to Earth for revenge.

SPACE GIANTS
The sentinels have to deal with giant tough-to-beat robots who are initially after some gold as fuel.

THE TIME TRAVELER
A human from an advanced time period has returned to stop the construction of a moon base by destroying the supply rockets (unmanned) shortly after launch.

THE SORCERESS
A large section of the north pole has vanished, and the sentinels are dispatched to investigate.

Ahh...the seventies. I remember really liking this one as a kid. If you've never seen it: Think "Superfriends" in space. The animation is classic 70's Filmmation. In other words, not really very good. But the stories are reasonably well-done, although this is strictly kids' stuff (the robot Moe is particularly grating to my adult mentality).

The bottom line is, Space Sentinels is a nice nostalgic trip if you were between the ages of 5 and 12 in 1977. For most everyone else, it's probably not worth owning.

I won't go into the name change from Young Sentinels to Space Sentinels;that's already been covered.What we have here is a kind of predecessor to the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (Americanized version), or what at first appears to be rejects from the Super Friends. Don't let appearances fool you; this is still a great superhero series that's worth having. My two personal favorite episodes are THE TIME TRAVELERS and THE RETURN OF ANUBIS. The tyrannosaur voice in TIME TRAVELERS is the exact same cavernous moan used for a T-Rex in the TARZAN,LORD OF THE JUNGLE episode TARZAN AT THE EARTH'S CORE (I wished this series would see a DVD release!),the way a 70's dino should sound! The Freedom Force segments are quite good. Watching Isis animated is great but I wished that JoAnna Cameron had done the voice.The same with Hercules;George DiCenzo in YS/SS and not in FF. Also, the FF episodes end with the opening dialogue laid over the closing credits, but to be honest I really don't remember if that's how the actual broadcasts ended. My reason for four stars is the fact that these are double-sided DVDs with fingerprints and scratches;these didn't hurt playback but are annoying when BCI takes great care in packaging the live-action Filmation shows but from what I've seen not the animated ones.
