Much more adult in story and content than earlier Anderson productions, and surprisingly dark with its pragmatic view of human nature and downbeat endings, the show now seems like a forerunner of The X-Files and the equally short-lived Dark Skies (1996). Barry Gray's memorable theme and atmospheric music greatly enhanced the overall impact. Stylishly made, though terribly sexist by current standards and featuring eye-catching costumes more fitted for a campy dress party than the front line of a futuristic war, this cult classic eventually evolved into Space: 1999 (1975).
The UFO DVDs have been beautifully designed and produced. The mono sound is exceptionally strong, and the restored and remastered picture is almost unbelievably good for a 1970 TV show. With barely a flaw anywhere, the episodes look so clear, colorful, and detailed that they could have been filmed last week. This eight-disc megaset features all 26 episodes. --Gary S. Dalkin
VERY entertaining, even though the plots are sometimes somewhat incongruous.
The DVD packaging is well done, the quality is outstanding of the videos themselves without making them look "digitally remastered" like some remasters do.
The special effects are very dated, the wardrobe borders on outrageous but the acting and story lines are top notch.
The initial shows were basically as I recalled them. This was the series I was looking for. Some oft he plots were a bit weak, but the special effects were excellent for the time. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Gerald Doutt

For any older sci-fi fan this is worth having. The special effects are campy, the acting is average but the story lines are pretty good. Read morePublished 2 months ago by bruce bryant
What a great TV series. If you consider the time that was written and filmed, it is even more impressive.Published 3 months ago by Daniela Pinto

It's not the number of episodes, it's the number of discs. The series was originally released in 2 separate sets of 4 discs each and the price of this set has always been better than the price of those 2 combined. The term has been used by A&E Home Video for many of their complete or semi... Read More

Sadly, these discs have neither. A&E Home Video, has been done away with both for several years now. They should have kept the captions if you ask me.
