  1. I feel that this was another great foul-up on 20th Fox’ part, right up on the level of the demise of Joss Whedon’s “Firefly”, especially Fox leaving A N fans hanging for five years for the resolution of the end-of season cliff-hanger. As “Firefly” has justified its’ popularity with the release and massive success of “Serenity” (over a month in the Top Ten), Alien Nation proved itself through the production of FIVE (count ’em, 5) made-for-TV movies that followed.

    1. “Dark Horizon”- 1994

    2. “Body and Soul”-1995

    3. “The Enemy Within”- 1996

    4. “Millennium”-1996

    5. “The Udara Legacy”-1997

    With the industry wasting production resources on so much other second- & third-rate crapola as fills the store shelves these days, I’m glad SOMEONE in the front office at FOX has taken notice and put forth a little effort so all the “Alien Nation” fans haven’t had to wait as long for the TV movies as we had for the series.

    As with “Firefly”, FOX is missing out on a sure thing by not putting both these great programs back into production, instead of wasting resources on so much of the second- & third-rate drivel they are so famous for!

  2. Finally!!! Ten years after the last special, the five Alien Nation made-for-TV movies have been collected and released in a very nice boxed set with lots of cool extras (gag reels, 2007 cast reunion featurette, commentaries, “making of” backstage footage). These five movies feature all of the humor and sly subversiveness of the original prematurely-canceled TV show, while expanding and completing the Alien Nation universe.

    Because they were only TV movies instead of theatrical, some of the special effects are a bit cheesy (to say the least) but that hardly detracts from the pleasure of finally completing the collection. Buy the original film with James Caan, buy the 6-disc TV series, buy these TV specials (but get ’em at Best Buy, not here…) and enjoy some of the best TV has to offer, on par with Six Feet Under or The Sopranos.

  3. I didn’t wait around as much as some people did for this since I just watched the show like six months ago, but I am very happy to have this collection. The show was better than I remembered after not seeing it for fifteen years. And these films pick up right where the series left off.

    I think it proves without a doubt how strong the show was when it inspires five made for tv movies. That is pretty solid. I loved the theatrical movie a heck of a lot when it came out and it is nice to have the entire pantheon of Alien Nation all together. Each movie is better than the last and it is too bad there aren’t more still coming out. I would watch them if they made them.

    The numerous featurettes are great and a surprise addition to this DVD boxed set. I loved the behind the scenes reunion with the cast filmed just a year ago. They all seem like great people and it looks like they had a lot of fun working on the show together. A+++ with this product but you can indeed find it cheaper elsewhere, sorry Amazon.

  4. Fox ate a star on this one for the double sided discs. My second disc was labeled incorrectly, so the A side is actually the B side.

    The movies pick up right where the series cliffhanger left off and continues this wonderful social issues program. Characters and storylines stay rich and ever evolving, making for a rewarding viewing experience. It was especially nice to follow up on Matt and Cathy’s relationship.

    I just wish there was more of this cancelled before its time masterpiece.

    Kenny Johnson, if you make it, you better believe I’ll be first in line to watch it. More Alien Nation!

  5. Currently you can pick this up at Best Buy for under 40 so don’t get ripped off. It’s a three disc set with the first movie on a single side disc. Unfortunately the other 4 movies are on double sided discs. Each movie has a making of and most have a gag reel. I took off one star for the double sided discs, otherwise it’s a great set.
