Editorial Reviews

Based on the hit Oscar(r) - nominated movie directed by John Carpenter, starring Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen! The alien returns to find and assist the child he fathered 14 years before on his visit to Earth. When he arrives, he takes on the identity of Paul Forrester, a prize-winning free-lance photographer with a rather wild reputation killed in a helicopter accident. He finds the child and his mother have been separated. Paul convinces Scott to help him to locate Jenny, his friend from his first visit to Earth. Unfortunately, their search is plagued by George Fox, a paranoid government agent who feels Paul and Scott are dangerous and wants to capture, examine, and probably kill them.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

The picture and sound are remastered!

Many say the TV series, a sequel to the movie (which had earned Jeff Bridges his first Oscar nomination), was even better than the movie.

STARMAN (1986-87) arrives on DVD at long last! It's been a LONG WAIT (25 years!) but this CLASSIC 1980's sci-fi/fantasy TV series is finally being released on DVD! STARRING Robert Hays ("Airplane!) as Paul Forrester/Starman, C.B. (Christopher Daniel) Barnes ("Brady Bunch: The Movie") as Scott Hayden, Michael Cavanaugh ("Dark Shadows: The Revival") as George Fox; co-starring Patrick Culliton as Wiley. Fourteen years after the events of the "Starman" movie starring Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen, the alien returns to Earth to locate the son he's never known. He assumes the identity (and body via cloning) of Paul Forrester, a recently deceased freelance photographer and soon, he and Scott begin a quest to locate Jenny Hayden, Scott's mother. The duo are pursued by George Fox, a government agent determined to capture them both. The following is a list of all 22 episodes of STARMAN.
1. "THE RETURN"--Guest Starring Mimi Kuzyk ("Wolf"), Jason Wingreen, Lydie Denier ("Tarzan")
2. "LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON"--Guest Starring Candy Clark ("American Graffiti"), Robyn Lively ("Teen Witch", "Twin Peaks")
3. "FATAL FLAW"--Guest Starring Patricia McPherson ("Knight Rider"), Sam Melville ("The Rookies"), Kenneth Tobey ("The Thing From Another World")
4. "THE BLUE LIGHTS"--Guest Starring Rick Hurst, Margot Rose
5. "BEST BUDDIES"--Guest Starring Cliff Potts ("Silent Running"), John Anderson
6. "SECRETS"--Guest Starring Lisa Blount ("Prince of Darkness")
7. "ONE FOR THE ROAD"--Guest Starring Ami Dolenz ("She's Out of Control"), Robert Donner ("Mork & Mindy"), Henry G. Sanders ("Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman")
8. "PEREGRINE"--Guest Starring Margaret Klenck, David Hayward, Jason Bernard ("V: The Mini-Series")
9. "SOCIETY'S PET"--Guest Starring Janet Leigh ("Psycho")

Starman is a gem of a TV show that was largely missed when originally aired, and later became a fan favorite with reruns on The Scifi Channel generating legions of fans who declare it one of their top ten shows of all time. Many say the TV series, a sequel to the movie (which had earned Jeff Bridges his first Oscar nomination), was even better than the movie. It managed to turn a chase for an alien into a show with strong family values between father and son (almost an oxymoron these days), a show where each learns from the other, with a theme about helping people to better lives along the way, in locales from Seattle to Sedona. Order and enjoy with your family.

And for more "episodes", check out the Starman fan fiction on Archive of Our Own dot org.

From the Starman fan club: "The 1986-87 television season saw something remarkable -- an hour-long drama suitable for family viewing. The show was STARMAN. Most people never saw it."

"A few of the properties that make STARMAN an outstanding series are:

* Fine writing, directing, acting, production values.
* Strong-but-gentle male role models.
* A warm father-son relationship; level-headed, respectful parenting.
* Peaceful problem-solving through honest communication.
* Non-sexist, non-racist, non-ageist attitudes.
* Treatments of numerous social and environmental issues.
* A minimum of violence, car chases, explosions, even with suspense scenes aplenty."

Update on quality of the discs: I've just received my disc set and can say the picture and sound quality are outstanding. If you're a long time fan and viewed this series on other media going all the way back to 25 year-old VHS tapes, you'll be amazed at the clarity.

You know, there's a pretty short list of big-screen movies that have spawned successful t.v. series. Off the top of my head, there's BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, M*A*S*H, STARGATE SG-1, and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. And while calling this short-lived small-screen continuation of STARMAN "successful" might be stretching it a bit, I definitely feel the show outdid the movie in most every way.

The basic, Fugitive-style plot, of course, was nothing groundbreaking. But where Starman shines is in the casting. It may be hard at first to put aside one's memories of Jeff Bridges--he did, after all, receive an Oscar nomination for his role in the feature film--but Robert Hayes quickly makes it his own. It helps that his alien character actually takes on a DIFFERENT body than the one in the film, so hopefully he is easier for audiences to accept. Alien "fish out of water" stories were also nothing new, even in 1986. But again, Hayes is up the challenge. His Paul Forrester may be an innocent in a cynical world, but his message of peace and understanding is universal.

Likewise, the producers struck gold with C.B. (later Christopher Daniel, and no, that doesn't really make sense to me either) Barnes as the teenage offspring of Forrester and the human Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen in the film and Erin Gray capably filling her shoes here). While Forrester feels a need to protect and teach his son, the boy also does both for him.

And then there's Michael Cavanaugh as George Fox, a man who is Jack McGee to Forrester's Incredible Hulk. Fox is determined to capture this man from the stars, as well as his half-human progeny ("Children are the hope of your species, not the danger," Forrester tells an unsympathetic Fox).
