I had the pleasure of meeting David Hedison at a convention a few years back. He recounted many fine stories about Voyage, including his relationship with Basehart, working with Irwin Allen, and his years as Captain of the Seaview.
I have waited a long time for this to come out on DVD. I am glad to see it is finally going to hit the DVD shelves!
That said, I ordered Season 1, Vol 1 of Voyage after reading reviews of the stellar B/W eps. Nice to see that this first half of the inaugural season lives up to the hype.
There is something about B/W that adds to the suspense of tv shows or movies. Voyage (as well as season 1 of Lost in Space)makes excellent use of the lack of color, resulting in taut and suspenseful installments. I especially enjoyed "The Fear Makers," "The Ghost of Moby Dick," and "Submarine Sunk Here."
Great video and audio transfers. The extras are nice too. Highly Recommended.
Looking forward to Vol. 2.
They botched the Lost In Space DVD set but did a super job mastering and transferring the recent "The Time Tunnel" Volume 1 DVDs and have done an equally good job on Voyage.
The mastering and transfer is crisp, clear, and beautiful. They obviously used either the original negatives or newly struck 35mm prints to master this set.
As noted by another reviewer, the sound track has some hiss in it, but nothing signficant.
The only gripe is that they tampered with the "unaired" color pilot by substituting the early season 2 color introduction in place of the original pilot intro, which is very different from the intros the series show aired with. They also tampered with the closing credits of the original which credited Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink of "Hogans Heros") as "Dr. Gamma". The credits on this version list Theodore Marcuse which is the way they aired during the series run. Otherwise, the pilot appears to be primarily intact.
The shows are very much as I remember them with good story lines and tight drama. A true blast from the past.
I can recommend this set if you're a fan of this series. Now, let's hope that the quality mastering and transfer work continues with the remainder of the releases of the series!
I've watch all three discs and didn't encountered any problems with skipping, locking, jumping or picture problems on this set.
But the double sided format is likely the cause of the problems people are having.
