We love rare and cool old TV shows on eatmybrains, so when Universal Pictures contacted us about this imminent release of the heavily underrated Earth 2 complete series on DVD, we just had to tell you about it. Here's the press release:
Embark on the quest to find a new home planet for humanity in the year 2192 as the complete sci-fi epic Earth 2 lands on DVD for the first time ever!
From the producers of Miami Vice and ER comes the thrilling story of Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino), who is struggling to find a healthy environment for her deathly ill son, Ulysses.
Disregarding government orders, she puts together an expedition to found a new civilization on an Earth-like planet 22 light years in the future. But after their ship crash-lands on the wrong side of planet G889, the “colonists” quickly discover that their new home already has some very strange and hostile inhabitants.
Catch DVD-exclusive bonus features and join stellar guest stars including Tim Curry, Virginia Madsen, Terry O’Quinn and more on all 21 groundbreaking episodes of the Emmy-winning series that critics cheered “soars to new sci-fi heights” (Houston Chronicle).
This is released on a R1 3 disc set from 19th July. Expect a set review as soon as we've had time to watch them all...
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
