4.0 out of 5 stars A great, fun, action/sci-fi show July 18 2004
First I'll review the show, then the box set itself.
The Show:
From the first few moments I knew this show would be enjoyable. The production values are pretty magnificent. The CG battles are easily on par with feature films. The makeup could use a lot of work, but the sets are pretty solid. The characters are definitely unique. My favorite being Tyr (Anasazi, out of Victoria by Barbarossa) the Nietzschean mercenary and perfect foil to Kevin Sorbo's Dylan Hunt. The plot seems to meander quite a bit in this first season, with more filler than I like, but when it works it works spectacularly. The season finale is some seriously tense television.
Overall I love this show, dispite its flaws. It seems to think it has the epic scope of Farscape, DS9, or Babylon 5. And at times it reaches those heights, but not consistently. At its heart it is a character driven action show, and on that score it delivers by the boatloads. If you're a sci-fi nut like myself you'll find little not to like. Personally I see it as both contemporary and companion to the show Farscape.
The DVD/set:
As with all ADV products I've run across, the sound and picture quality are magnificent. That's never the problem. The box set is pretty dry on the extras I like to see, namely interviews and behind the scenes footage, both with the cast and the writers. Though there is a lot of info on the background on the world, I'll give them that. Again, as with other ADV box sets (*cough* Farscape *cough) you're truly better off waiting for the box than buying each "collection" individually. Unlike the FS boxes however, you can buy this and still afford food that month.
Overall: The show got better in the 2nd season, and it could use more interesting extras, but its still a great and underrated show.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible re-release by Alliance Jan. 8 2012
As with most recent re-releases by Alliance, the packaging is nice and cheap, but the video quality is horrible.
As already noted, this release is 4x3, not 16x9 as originally broadcasted.
The video has significant Interlacing Issues, enough to become distracting when watching.
If you are fan of this series, and can afford it, I strongly suggest you seek out the original Andromeda dvd release by the now defunct ADV. The picture and sound is magnificent and the dvds are loaded with extras.

1.0 out of 5 stars The future is made of fromage... Nov. 8 2005
In the past, many have believed - or wished - that the moon was made of cheese. According to Andromeda's vision of the future, the entire universe is cheesy. Bad writing, ham-fisted acting (honestly, I'm not trying to dwell on food metaphors), dreadful dialogue, tacky costumes & makeup, and overly colourful CGI effects make this series one of the worst examples of the "crew of misfits" cliche to appear on television. I'm not saying that this classic sci-fi scenario can't still be done well. Just rent (no, buy!) Firefly to see a fresh take on the genre with great writing and acting to match. Andromeda has plenty of action and cleavage to satisfy your average teenage male, but anyone older (you know who you are...isn't it time you moved out of your mom's basement?) should be embarrassed to be watching this blight on Gene Roddenberry's memory. Why shows like Andromeda (and "According to Jim") continue to survive, when much better fare is yanked unceremoniously from the airwaves, will remain one of life's sad mysteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda" April 15 2004
I recently got hooked on "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda" when Sci-Fi began airing the series; I was hooked from the first episode. I'm not sure about some of the science; for example, is it possible for a starship to edge close to the event-horizon of a black hole, yet not get sucked into it, since even light cannot escape a singularity? And why is there a starfield in front of the black hole, and the "Maru," as she's towing the "Andromeda" away from the event-horizon? Wouldn't the black hole swallow any star systems in the area-as well as both ships? Or does the "Andromeda Ascendant" have capabilities which allow her to safely maneuver that close to a collapsar? And why does the technically advanced "Andromeda" not have tractor beams for towing?
Other than that, its a great show-so great in fact, that the occasional science inaccuracies don't seem so bad.
The First Season DVD is a keeper. It has pretty good special features; the timeline of the Systems Commonwealth adds a nice bit of background history, as do the Argosy/High Guard ship specs. My only complaint is that the ship specs should feature blueprints of the ships along with the specs. Still, I s'pose that's a minor complaint. The print for the ship specs and actor/character bios are very small and difficult to read. But I can live with that. I like the commentaries and actor/producer interviews as well.
The second season "Andromeda" DVD graphics and features are a bit slicker and more sophisticated than those of season one, still, though season one's very much worth owning if you're a fan.
All-in-all, a worthy addition to the Roddenberry corpus of fine sci-fi shows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Andromeda packaging is less than stellar
The dvds are just fine. The packaging is extremely poor. Three dvds per "page" are seated in overlapping trays with a pair of prongs for each dvd to keep them in place. Read more
