Space: 1999, Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Space: 1999 looks crisp and clean in this new Blu-ray edition, delivered via an AVC codec in its original aspect ratio of 1.33:1 and given a full 1080p transfer. Don't believe everything you read on the internet (except here at Blu-ray.com, of course): this show has not had its aspect ratio tampered with as did A&E's recent release of the 1970s British documentary The World at War. (Some of the supplements on the SD-DVDs are indeed anamorphically enhanced to 16:9, but the original series itself is still resolutely 4:3). The best thing about the image quality here is the color saturation and the incredible black levels. While there is some variation throughout the 24 episodes of this first season, over all the palette is robust and brilliantly displayed here. What may disappoint some modern day viewers not previously acquainted with this series is its penchants toward beiges and whites, but if you look around, there are some wonderfully bright reds, green, blues and greens dotting the landscape, especially in some of the alien worlds the Moonbase Alpha residents visit. The SFX work, aside from some of the unfortunate miniatures, looks very good in hi-def, and the black levels of the outer space segments are reference quality (this show was innovative in its use of high contrast, something that was not the norm for episodic television back then). Sharpness and clarity are very good, though this obviously has the textureless appearance of video, so the image itself is "surface only," so to speak, with little filmic depth.


Space: 1999, Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A&E has given us a repurposed 5.1 mix for this new Blu-ray edition of Space: 1999, but it is not a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. It is instead a standard DTS 5.1 mix. Truth be told, there isn't stupendous surround activity here for large swaths of any given episode, but when it does appear, it's handled quite nicely. Typically the surrounds come into play in the FX sequences, when a spaceship's whoosh pans through the soundfield. The tubular "horizontal elevator" that our heroes transport themselves around in also has some nice panning effects associated with it. LFE here is very good, with some spectacular explosions occurring in several episodes. Dialogue and underscore are almost always anchored in the front channels and are decently mixed. I have problems with the score to this series anyway, so the less I could hear it, the better I liked the show. There is no noticeable damage on any of the stems used to give us a repurposed 5.1 track, and there's really no egregious compression here despite the age of the original source elements. A&E has provided the original mono tracks for each episode (as well as music only tracks for all but two episodes), albeit in lossy Dolby, but purists may well want to opt for that original experience.
