Movie Reviews

Return From the Past.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"MY FAVORITE MARTIAN was only on regular television for three years, but had a huge impact upon the popular culture of the time; it launched the careers of two actors and was one of the few shows that both fans of sci-fi and Westerns enjoyed. The show starred Bill Bixby (who later went on to be David Banner in THE INCREDIBLE HULK) as Tim O'Hara, a low-rung journalist whose life changes forever when a flying saucer containing a Martian (Ray Walston) lands on the roof of the garage apartment he lives in. The Martian's ship is severely damaged and he can't return home until he fixes his ship. The Martian, who has powers of levitation and retractable antennae in his head, disguises himself as a human, moves in with Tim, and takes up the identity as his Uncle Martin. Bixby and Walston have some amazing chemistry and had the duo worked in things other than this series, they could have been as big as Abbott and Costello or Burns and Allen. Walston received a great deal of critical acclaim in life, but Bixby was a great actor who never did receive the acclaim and recognition he should have.

This DVD has four episodes all in color. Each of the episodes revolves around Uncle Martin's time machine that he invented. "Go West Young Martian, Go West (parts 1 and 2)" is a two episode story where Martin and Tim are sent back in time to St. Louis, Missouri in 1849. However, the time machine is in California and the pair have to get their way there, but without changing history. In "Martin Meets His Match" Martin brings back Leonardo Da Vinci to the present to assist Martin in working on his spaceship. Finally, in "Pay the Man the 24 Dollars" Tim learns an important lesson about not messing around with history just to do historical research.

I enjoyed watching all four of these episodes. They are only about 30 minutes in length each, so it takes around two hours to watch the entire DVD. This is a great way to introduce someone to MY FAVORITE MARTIAN or as a token gift for fans of the original series."
Ray Walston in a Technicolour Feature.

"I really enjoyed those reviewed episodes in Colour, They truly stand the test of time. Very well written episodes by very sensible scientific minds. With the exception of the remake of "My favourite martian" by Disney, I've never seen Ray Walston starring in a Tecnicolor film. A very entertaining experience."
