Je recommande vivement ce coffret. Il n'est malheureusement disponible qu'en anglais (cette saison n'a jamais été diffusée donc doublée en France) mais des sous-titres français sont présents.
L'image est très belle et détaillée. Aucun supplément par contre n'est disponible dans ce coffret.
Attention au niveau du matériel pour le lire. Zone 1 NTSC.
Season 2 had it's decent episodes, thanks largely to the seemingly effortless talents of Gil Gerard, but it lost everything that had made the show special in Season 1. This set is worth getting, though, if only for the two-part episodic presentation of the 1979 film, which gives some extra scenes that help fill in the gaps of Buck's premiere adventure with scenes that were deleted from the theatrical presentation.
Now serving aboard the starship Searcher alongside the beautiful Wilma Deering and his little robot pal Twiki, Buck gains a fierce feather-haired alien warrior sidekick named Hawk who is descended from the prehistoric bird people of Easter Island (hey, I did say it was the seventies...) as well as valuable scientific support from the always delightful Wilfred Hyde-White as eccentric old genius Dr. Goodfellow who is very much in the style of the Dr. Huer character from the original comic strip back in the thirties (that's not to say that the unfortunately absent Tim O'Connor version of Huer isn't missed on the show though!).
Star-faring fun for everyone, the only thing that any potential buyers should be warned about (other than the fact that someone else provides Twiki's voice for the first few episodes, although thankfully Mel Blanc does return for the rest) is the extra special feature on this set.
While the Season One set includes the original pilot movie that was released in theatres, Season Two has the extremely rare version that was broadcast on television complete with new scenes edited in to set up the rest of the first season's episodes.
Unfortunately, the print they found is not in any sense of the word a good one and is quite dark and blurry a la some poorly-recorded old VHS tape, but with the video and audio quality of the rest of the episodes being so high, this is obviously the best that they could find and I for one am more than happy to see it after all these years despite its poor condition.
If you are a fan of this show and seventies sci-fi in general, this is definitely worth checking out.
