Aliens Among Us

"I already loved the New Outer Limits and have been waiting for season 2 to be released. Only 1 of the episodes in this collection came from season one, so I don't feel too cheated. I also got one of my favorite episodes "Afterlife", which stars Clancey Brown from HBO's Carnival. This collection dealt alot with human ethics and morality. In pretty much all of the episodes, humanity was tested. In "Afterlife", we failed, but in "Alien Shop", we passed. I really enjoyed this little set, and will probably repeat these episodes when new seasons are released (hopefully soon). I, like many other people, am disappointed that MGM chose to block episodes in sets like this instead of releasing complete seasons. I do feel this "Aliens Among Us" Collections is one of the better collections. For $7.47, I couldn't complain too much."
Pretty darned good entertainment!
Roger J. Buffington | Huntington Beach, CA United States | 10/07/2007

"This DVD is excellent entertainment. Most of the episodes are very well done, with one or two exceptions. "Relativity Theory" alone is worth the price of this DVD--a deeply moving story about the importance of mercy and the consequences of immoral conduct. The other episodes are all pretty good. This collection is far above most made-for-TV series. Incredibly, it aims for, and appeals to, the viewer's intellect. Most times it scores a bull's-eye.

One thing I don't care for in this series is its persistent portrayal of the US Government as an evil, ruthless entity. This grates, and was not necessary to make this an entertaining series.

Highly recommended."
A Mixed Bag

"I bought this ("Aliens Among Us") and "Sex and Science Fiction." I also bought "Outer Limits, Season 1." I don't know why I chose the "grouped" episodes instead of other seasons, since after having viewed them all, the "Outer Limits, Season 1" was definitely better and more enjoyable. I think it's a waste of money to buy the grouped episodes rather than getting them by seasons."
