Product Description

DVD Features: Commentary with Stars Nicholas Young, Peter Vaughn-Clarke, and Sammie Winmill on "The Slaves of Jedikiah"; Cast Biographies; Interactive Menu; Scene Selection.

HASH(0xa12e4390) out of 5 stars OK, it's not the best, but.... March 8 2006
By G. Wilkins - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I think that this series, if you liked it when you were younger, isn't that bad still. I don't "regret buying it" as some do.

First, it might not stand up to today's TV, but then again most TV today doesn't stand up to what came out in the 80's anyway.

I do not, not for a second, regret getting this. I recall watching it on Nickelodeon. It was after I found Tom Baker's Doctor Who, but before I really got *INTO* British Sci-Fi. This series broke the mold that the British had more to offer than Doctor Who.

OK, the effects aren't stellar. Maybe the writing needs more. But it had something else people forget: atmosphere. As Jeremy Bentham wrote: 'it's all about putting aside reality for 30 minutes and immersing yourself in the story' (I paraphrased that a bit). Don't expect it to be Citizen Kane!! Put your expectations to one side and just remember it as a series trying to find it's feet and get a new concept out. Watch it for the joy of your youth, or the joy of finding something new. For those of you who regretted it, there is always eBay.

HASH(0x9c3894b0) out of 5 stars The commentaries are outrageous Nov. 4 2007
By ashford - Published on
Format: DVD
I loved watching TP again. Hard to explain the appeal; you will see some of the worst acting, worst sets, worst effects, bad telecine and dodgy chromo-key on display anywhere in the 1970s. And yet...sometimes it looks fantastic, the stories are often original and engaging and the good acting performances definitely outweigh the bad. Most indefineably of all it has charm. Although there are campy moments (which can be enjoyed as such) it is the stories and the characters that hold the attention.

I am intrigued by the removal of the commentaries. The UK boxes describe these as the funniest commentaries on DVD. Quite a claim but I think I might just agree. They are hilariously bitchy and embittered (time was not terribly kind to the TP stars after the show finished, well at least as far as their acting careers went). The comments on other actors and the production team are unbelievably cruel (but hysterically funny); and yes, ribald is the word. They are also very non-PC. At one stage you hear the sound of beer cans being opened (which might explain much) and not infrequently someone says "that will be edited out." The worst of the expletives are bleeped out but it seems that's about as far as the editing went. Was it all a terrible mistake?

HASH(0x9c72be10) out of 5 stars Just as Good as I remember Aug. 27 2006
By Rich S. - Published on

I've often wondered about this TV show and what happened to it. I first saw it just a couple of weeks ago at Tower Records and could not beleive what I saw. My G/F is also into sci-fi and I told her about this show a few times. I ordered the set and just watched the first DVD. I was expecting to be disappointed by the shows special effects with this being the era of CGI and special effects having come SO far in the 30 years since this show was first on.

I warned her that it would probably appear cheesy and about it's low budget nature. While some things were almost laughable compared to today, overall it was better then I was expecting. The stories were more complicated then I remember, the stories do tend to suck you in and make you care about what happens to the characters. It was pretty cool about the things that Tim can do, with him being a biological computer, I was surprised that they even understood about that back then, the way that he can create food, tap into hospital and other computer before the advent of the internet and much more.

Some of the acting is worse then I remember, you can tell that some of the lines are spoken too fast, some direction needs work and such, but again, for a kids show in the early to mid 70's, it was fairly well done. I'm Glad that I bought this first set and will probably get the second set too. My G/F also enjoyed it and thought that it was pretty cool too.

My being into the mind, Qigong, Chinese Gung-fu, meditation and internal force energy, science, astronomy and sci-fi in general, this show always held a special place with me. As a child that grew up being bothered and picked on, this show was a huge escape for me and helped me to understand many things and inspire me in my training and in overcoming myself.

It's in this light that I continue to watch the show. Just as Lucas gave us a solid foundation of Spirituality and morality with Star Wars, this show also did the same thing in a different way. As long as you keep in mind that the special effects and some of the acting is not what you would expect today and if you enjoyed it when you were younger, I'm sure that you'll also enjoy seeing this great sci-fi series again as I myself do.

HASH(0x9ccc01c8) out of 5 stars Great quality picture, missing the commentaries alot! June 18 2005
By Mr. Jann Linder - Published on
Format: DVD
I gotta say...everyone is saying the most obvious thing: Lack of most of the commentaries. However, I gotta remind everyone that the picture quality of these DVDs are excellent! Much better than their region-free UK brethren. I am surprised that they did not release them in a more normal the UK series style (of around 13 episodes or the US season style of Season 1 in a boxed set then Season 2...etc.

However, we DO get a better buy this way. $50 US is an excellent price. I, like a previous reviewer, found them at Best Buy...

They DO include the excellent feature of the "Teaser" at the end of the episodes. Very much UK! (As the commentators point out: "It is because the eposidoes ran short on time!")

A&E, talkbackThames, THAMES, FreemantleMeedia, NewVideo -- listen up: INCLUDE ALL COMMENTARIES IN THE FUTURE! We deserve it and there is no downside for you!

HASH(0x9cb44ec4) out of 5 stars Better than I remember June 27 2005
By TammyJo Eckhart - Published on

The special effects are, well, like Dr. Who, but the writing is actually pretty good for what was a kids show in the mid 1970s. Often I'm disappointed when I watch shows I remember from my younger days but with these first two seasons of "The Tomorrow People" I was reassured that I had something resembling good tastes when I saw it on cable in the 1980s. The sound is a bit off but my bet is its the tv show's sound, not the DVD -- just turn up the volume a bit more.
