I have all of the Phenomenon DVD's and they are exceptional.
Lavishly produced, very HIGH Quality and extremely intriguing.
Dean Stockwell---a very underated and under appreciated actor brings his star quality talent in at just the right pitch as the Host of the series.
By the way, Check out Hepburn and Stockwell in the timeless film adaptation of Eugene O'Neil's "Long Days Journey Into Night" for proof of that statement! One of the great forgotten films!!!!!!
Unfortunately...I cannot remember the name of the man who narrarates the Phenomenon series, but his voice was a stroke of casting genius.
What the inimitable Alexander Scourby did for the Bible...this man...whoever he is...does for this series...
So check out this series if you want to see a surprisingly Professional and Expertly produced Investigative-Documentary Series that covers many subjects of Mystery in a manner that does not de-legitimize the subject itself with a lot of Hooey!
Example....the Noah's Ark segment is possibly one of the most groundbreaking and stunning documentaries that I have ever seen on the subject of Noah's Ark research!
Especially as there is photographic evidence of this amazing earthquake that occured and basically exposed the ribs of an ancient ship at the foot of Arrarat.
What is fascinating about a Series such as this is that they are willing to actually consider and present evidence even when it defies conventional or institutionalized versions of Histories Mysteries.
Yep...for those of us who enjoyed "In Search Of..." with Leonard Nimoy back in the 70's and have come to detest all of the conveyor belt shaky camera crap documentaries that Discovery and A&E are putting out these days full of fluff and way to many commercials, then this is a top notch series to get your hands on.
Documentary series just don't come along this good very often.
I wish the legendary Graham Hancock could get together with the folks who made this series and.....oh man would that be a buzz or what!!!!!!!!!!
I would be willing to purchase a documentary just of them talking about the idea of making such a documentary of his ideas and theories with this quality of production....!!
Anyway...this is Quality and Intrigue at a great price!!!
