Space: 1999 Blu-Ray Review

Space: 1999 was one of my favorite science fiction  series of the seventies.  I was just a kid, but I was captivated by the adventures of the denizens of Moon Base Alpha.

Space: 1999 Title

Moon Base Alpha from Space:1999

Now A&E is releasing Season 1 of Space: 1999 on Blu-ray.  Earlier DVD releases had left fans disappointed in the overall quality.    The Blu-ray offering blows the DVD set out of the water.  Rumors abounded that the earlier DVD sets were taken from 16mm stock, but the Blu-ray is reportedly transferred from a much higher quality 35mm master.  The series is also restored to the correct 4:3 ratio.  As an improvement, the audio track is in 5.1 surround sound and there are several hours of bonus features as well as the 24 episodes.

For fans of Space: 1999, the Season 1 Blu-ray set will be a welcome addition to your high definition collection.
