Product Description

This anthology series pairs some of science fiction's greatest authors with the genre's most creative screenwriters and directors. Exploring the possibilities of space, time, and perception, these six hour-long episodes feature big stars--including Malcolm McDowell, Anne Heche, John Hurt, and Brian Dennehy--lending their talents to the work of such classic writers as Robert A. Heinlein, Howard Fast, and Harlan Ellison. Meanwhile, screenwriters Josh Olson (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE), Walter Mosley (DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS), and Michael Tolkin (THE PLAYER) pair with accomplished directors to shape their work into mind-bending parables that expand our notion of reality. Narrated by physicist Stephen Hawking, this collection from the show's first season includes the episodes "The Discarded," "Jerry Was a Man," "A Clean Escape," "The Awakening," "Little Brother," and "Watchbird" (the last two never broadcast during the show's initial run).

Masters of Science Fiction: The Complete Series

I spent my youth reading the Golden Ages of Scifi: Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clark, Robert Heinlein, Larry Niven, Frank Herbert etc. I bought this DVD with fear and hestitation. Iwasn't sure the 21st century had any Masters, however I was happily mistaken. I enjoyed each story.

1. A Clean Escape - true scifi -- end of the world scenario. A shrink dying of an unstated illness is obsessed with helping a patiant recover his memory. The conclusion is shattering and has a relevent message to humankind. Judy Davis as the shirnk and Sam Waterston whom you'll recognize if you're a Law and Order fan put in solid performances. Based on short story by John Kessel.

1. The Awakening - real scifi -- an alien lands on earth. A little like War of the Worlds these creatures appear all over the earth. Are they dangerous or friendly? After they communicate, the world is forced to choose between peace and distruction (shades of the original The Day the Earth stood Still), but well worth viewing. Stars Terry O'Quinn (Lost) & Elizabeth Rohn(Angel). Based on a short story by Howard Fast.

3. Jerry was a Man -- Shades of Isamov's "I, Robot" with a twist. Poses the question of what makes a person human with a suprising answer. Stars Anne Heche (John Q) & Malcolm McDowel (A Clockwork Orange). Based on short story by Heinlein, my hero as a teenager.

4.The Disgarded - Just as the lepers were sent to leper colonies so are the diseased sent to planets in outer space. -- Earthers return and invite them back on one condition. Can those who sent them to purgatory be trusted?

Masters of Science Fiction is okay. Some of the episodes are even good. However, it is no Twilight Zone or even Amazing Stories. At the risk of sounding curmudgeonly in this review: I did not feel ripped off, but I would not recommend this package.
