Science-fiction series focusing on Dr. Harrison Blackwood's team efforts to seek out the scattered groups of aliens and foil their attempts to trigger world panic and widespread destruction.

Customer Reviews

Finally they are finally going to release season 2!
Jayson Spears
The only way I have seen this since 1989 was on bootleg dvd, which is pretty bad compared to the video quality of this new set.
I. Johnson
Unfortunately, that's it, and it's why I'll give the 2nd season a 2-star rating as opposed to only one.

Hooray!!! Finally they are finally going to release season 2! A much darker season than the first with the introduction of a new alien species to battle the martians. A must have if you have season 1.

Oh, I am soooo thankful that this was released. Despite everyone else's hate on the second season, I liked the darker tone of the second season. Plus, Adrian Paul joins the cast and this was Rachel Blanchard's television debut before taking on the lead role in the TV series "Clueless." Now I know why I was in love with Adrian Paul when I was growing up and it was NOT the Highlander series.

I have been a science fiction fan all of my life...I'm 59. Somehow I missed this series, so I bought it here for a good price. I think that for it's day (early 80's...soldiers are still wearing old pisspot helmets), it was probably cutting edge. Quite frankly, I'm having trouble getting through it. It's not the concept, which I find is grear. It's the writing, which is full of cliches, the acting, which is wooden with no chemistry between the characters, which of course goes back to the writing again and the directing. It's outdated and owes a lot of it's style and form to Quinn Martin shows, like the Invaders, except they existed 15 years earlier. I think my biggest beefs are that the aliens say the same things in each episode..."we must raise our bretheren, these humans are stronger than we anticipated, we must accomplish this brothers or all is lost." The humans do the same thing and they are wooden enough to make Keanu Reeves look animated.

I do like the way they transition from the 1953 film with Gene Barry to now. To throw in some references to HG Wells would have been nice and thus far I've discovered no real purpose for the invasion, although I might have missed it. With the kind of military power the aliens have, this should be no contest.

I'm keeping the set so I can watch it again, but so far I'm underwhelmed.

I don't get where some have said the 2nd and final season of war of the worlds was different from the first.There only seemed to be months missing before the ending of season 1 and the opening episode of season 2 where the world has fallen into economic and social collapse.The first wave of aliens were eliminated by the second wave for their many failures.Why the first season seems to be kind of chessy,the second year kicks into high gear.Their is continuity between both seasons.The second wave of aliens are a different breed than The Advocacy.To see Norton fall and the heroic sacrifice of Paul Ironhorse to save his comrades,especially young Debi,is moving and touching to say the least.Also,for Harrison Blackwood to pick up arms,to carry a gun is not surprising giving the loss of his comrades.The addition of Adrian Paul only adds to the storyline.This 2nd season has many awesome storylines involving time travel,cloning,and other interesting subplots.And when this Series ends it doesn't cop out and leave the story unresolved.I highly recommend to anyone that has purchased the first season to get the 2nd and final season.Although low-budget,both seasons,made in canada belong in any Sci/fi fans DVD collection My Rating for War of the Worlds complete Series-5 STARS.Highlander-the series fans also might want to consider this for Adrian Paul as the heroic,Kincaid,the soldier prodige of Paul Ironhorse.

What I liked about this show from the late 80's? It was the fact that you didn't know who was going to survive the next episode. Jared Martin from Fantastic Voyage in the 70's was a good character actor. Adrian Paul was the new kid on the block with his debut as second in command. All the other characters provided a rich tapestry to make this a compelling show.

I have to add I wasn't happy with the loss of Ironhorse, but the show did need some changes. The earth was being invaded by martians and I don't believe the structured environment of the first season. This show was from Paramount. The same studio that made The Next Generation, so I thought it was worth a look. I do remember another good show that would play opposite this one called "Friday The 13th:The Series", it was also a surprise hit.

For all intents and purposes, War of the Worlds was a solid show you could watch on a lazy Saturday night. In comparison with what goes for suspense and horror, it's mild and not too gory. It was better than most of the sci fi/horror material that passed for late night TV.

This is one of the best scifi series that has been done on TV. The beginning series is on dvd and should be seen before checking out the final season. I love the final series because it introduces us to the Highlander himself, Adrian Paul, and he is wonderful in this series. You will see why he became so loved as the Higlander and see just how good an actor he was in this series. This is one of my most favorite TV series of all time.

When I purchased the first season five years ago, I wondered how long would it be before
the second season would be available. Now my prayers have been answered.

This season is a post-alien-invasion-apocalypse action show...
Don't let dreadful season 1 keep you from really good season 2.
It's like a whole different show!!!
