Wow;

Thought this show was gone and long forgotten Great to be able to watch 1973 Canadian Sci Fi again. Hard to believe this show is now 36 years old.

Comes in a nice box set with a glossy informational insert about the series. The prints are in reasonable shape and are as good as can be expected from a show shot in 1973 with video tape. Even looks quite good on the big screen TV.

A must for anyone who enjoyed watching this show back in the good old days. Some of the guest stars are well known from other sci fi series. (Barry Morse, space 1999 and John Calicos, Battlestar Galactica)

A cult classic worth picking up..enjoy

This Canadian made sci fi series Starring Keir Dullea was a favourite of mine in the 1970's. Author Harlan Ellison wrote the original screenplay but would only allow his alias Corwainer Bird to appear in the credits after withdrawing from the project.. Plagued by budgetary and technical difficulties this tv series still managed to have many famous Canadian and US actors playing roles. Sadly it only went on for two seasons. Rumours abound about the story being turned into a movie. Sony Pictures was apparently the last to option the film rights but there has been no word since. With the 2 extras, a short making of piece starring Dullea and Douglas Trumbu of Silent Running fame and a 16mm shot promo piece this is a must have for any Starlost fan. I think it really is time for a Canadian remake but this time with proper scripts and a decent budget.

Totally missed this from my childhood: was delighted to finally see it released on DVD. Some very familiar actors on the show will be known to this generation. The quality is really quite good given the age of the series!

I loved this show growing up. Sure, the effects are cheesy and the pacing is maple syrup slow. When you realize it was filmed in a local tv studio by inexperienced staff and written by authors selected for their ability to work for minimum wage, it all makes sense. However, like all good SF it does make you think, and then the extraneous stuff doesn't matter so much.

This series features lots of Canadian actors in their early days. My husband and I watch a couple of episodes every weekend, and we find it so entertaining. It's a bit quirky in places, but lots of fun to watch. Some of the special effects and scientific concepts are ahead of their time. I think it's a must-have for sci-fi buffs

Ok, so a rebel, a pretty girl and an Amish guy run off in the night.
Oh wait. They`re all Amish. On a spaceship. With green foam accents *everywhere* (it must have been on sale).

I watched this as a kid and remember wishing it was made better because the storylines and concepts were so good.
I sat down to watch them as an adult and was pleasantly surprised. Yeah, the production is cheesy (did I mention the green foam) but it was really an enjoyable watch. The worst thing I can say is that it gets a little draggy in places because they didn`t seem to understand the concepts of space-adventure or action-sequence very well. The concepts behind the stories, and some of the special effects even, were really interesting. I spotted plotlines and even a few set designs that were lifted and used by later sci-fi series.
If you remember this one fondly at all, or are interested in early sci-fi,
I`d recommend it.

While the stories of how the creater of the show thought it was SO bad that he would only allow a Pen Name to be used in the Credits; the show is actually not that bad; and the theme is still kinda catchy today. It boasts a number of actors from other Sci-fi series (Walter Koenig & John Colicos from Star Trek; Barry Morse from Space 1999) and Canadian actors (Llyod Bochner & Trudy young) to name a few. The series made a wonderful transfer to DVD in both sound and picture (unlike the reviews of the VHS episodes). It's well worth the price for the nostalgic Sci-fi buffs. The ARK was somwhat inspired from the models used in Silent Running. Silent Running (Widescreen)

An amazing sci-fi series from the 70s. It's no Space:1999 or UFO, but it has a really interesting plot.
Too bad the fighting between scriptwriters, producers and director didn't really give this show much of a chance, but most of the episodes are still enjoyable. I'd recommend it without a doubt.
