Alien Nation aired for one season (1989-1990) and then was cancelled. No fault of it's own. FOX was having financial difficulties and as a result cancelled all dramatic shows for the next season. Which is sad, as the producers were all geared for season 2 and left everyone with a cliffhanger. This generated a series of novels. Five movies were later filmed to wrap things up (1994-1997), which are available in this separate Dvd set.

Alien Nation thoroughly scrutinizes the social repercussions of having a new minority injected into the system. Because this minority happens to be an alien species with it's own anatomical and cultural eccentricities, the viewer is not especially emotionally invested, a fact which the writer's used to extreme advantage in turning the magnifying glass on us humans, our own xenophobia, and bizarre rituals. To me, this is Alien Nation's strong point, which few contenders have equaled.

This series is much gentler than the gritty movie which spawned it. Each episode is basically a police procedural, only a bit like a Scifi version of Lethal Weapon. There's been rumblings for several years of a remake of the film, but I haven't seen anything further on it since 2016.

Marvelous

"Having a fascination for the possibility of other life in our solar system makes this a satisfying series for me. I love the personalities and their interchange of ideas."
Wonderful

"I watched the series and movies when they were originally on TV and always mentioned them as one of my favorites.
This year I purchased the series on DVD and while I still enjoyed it, I found a number of weak episodes and repetition in situations. I didn't purchase this made for TV movie set at first because the price was more than I could afford to spend. However, once Amazon dropped the price I bought it right away.
Wow, what a difference b/w these movies and the show. These movies are so well done. While some of the special effects look a bit dated, the story and characters are quite good and you can see how much better this series is with a bit more time and money thrown at it.
The extras are fine, too. I don't know what else they could add in there for a show that's been dead for a while, but I'm certainly happy with the purchase.
Even if you've never watched Alien Nation the series, but like Sci-Fi, I think you'd really enjoy these movies!"

"I am glad I purchased this set with the original series dvd's. I didn't remember the movies before I bought this collection, but after watching them I started remembering parts of each of the movies. I thought they all were really good. Too bad the suits in Hollywood don't have a clue what's good and what isn't. The quality to me was really good too. I do have an up-converting dvd player and I thought all the movies looked pretty good. I haven't seen Blue Ray dvd's yet and I'm sure they're nowhere near that quality, but I'm used to some pretty bad cable tv reception over the years and was very pleased over all. If you liked the series you should get this collection, although I thought it was a bit pricey. Go ahead and get this set, you won't be disappointed."
