Additional Information

As Newcomers -- fugitive slaves from the planet Tencton -- Detective George Francisco and his family face prejudice and intolerance as they struggle to assimilate to life on their adopted planet. Together with his human partner, hard-edged Detective Matt Sikes, George walks the beat in Slagtown, Los Angeles, a Newcomer slum teeming with vice and corruption. More than just another cop show or science fiction show, Alien Nation utilizes a unique and exciting blend of action, suspense, humor, and social drama to explore the sociology of what it means to be an outsider striving to fit in.

Kenneth Johnson attempted to do with Alien Nation what Joss Whedon did with Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Take a mediocre movie and create a series that had heart, soul, and a mythology all it's own. If Alien Nation: The Series had been allowed to continue for a few more seasons, I have no doubt that it would have become one of those epic series that are now part of the American psyche. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after just one season, but what a season it was! I am so glad that it is finally coming out on DVD! I just hope that the movies will eventually be released as well!
It may be the "Complete Series" but does not include the four TV Movies made in later years.

Picture quality is okay but seems too colorful and a bit fuzzy.

Audio level also changes greatly from episode to episode so be very careful with your volume control.

Six double sided DVD box set with two episodes per side with no indication on packaging that DVD's are flippers.

Last DVD does feature a special on the making of Alien Nation.

This in places has a better picure quality than the episodes!

Please note however this special is five minutes in length - WOW!

So yes another great series let down by poor transfer to DVD with little or no quality control.
First, if you are interested in purchasing this product, ignore all the reviews from folks that loved the show but have not purchased the DVD! I LOVED the show. I still LOVE the show. However I am on my third exchange of the unbelievibly poorly rendered DVDs. The first; two of the DVDs had unreadable flip sides (on three High quality DVD players). The second; one DVD with unreadable flip side and one that hiccupped an entire episode. My third and hopefully final seems to be ok, with the exception of still buggy flip sides. It is sad to see such a great show that has been anticipated by so many to have been produced with seemingly no Quality Control!
