Excellent Series, have watched it twice and could watch it again,
This review is from: Prophets of Science Fiction Season 1 (Amazon Video)
I have been reading the featured authors since I was a child, and beyond, and there are none better. This series is just plain Great and I really recommend it.
This series features the most seminal writers of the genre and helps one understand it by showing the groundwork---little of which has ever been surpassed. For instance, ALIENS was based upon a short story I read when I was about eight years old, 1953.
Ridley Scott does his uttermost best to wreck this fine documentary series by being the dullest, deadest, emptiest host i have ever seen, and his audio also dips down into some nether-realm where it is nearly unintelligible to me, and I think he should be written out and somebody new dubbed in---he's that totally bad. Of course, he's a directorial genius and can also draw pictures with supreme artistic skill---so what do i know? I just found him extremely irritating.
But I GIVE THIS SERIES 5 STARS AND CANNOT RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY ENOUGH. BUY IT; WATCH IT!!
Live long and prosper.
**Don't bother writing me critical remarks because I don't care about anything anybody else has to say :)
.GREAT SERIES --- RIDLEY SCOTT STINKS. Learn it; live it; love it.
