Movie Reviews

Hasn't Dated Much Since It Was Made In The '90s
MATTHEW BLACK | Auckland, New Zealand. | 01/06/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm glad to say that the full six episodes of this fine series are finally available, **though not on the first 1x disc edition of this release**, which is now unavailable. Seek out the re-release. There have been many documentary series done on the subject of space exploration over the years. But few have done it better or covered all bases like 'Space Age'. Producer Greg Andorfer and writer Gary Hines are to be commended for creating a series that will not date very quickly and will inspire people to look to space with fresh eyes. It was a real coup to get one of Science Fiction's leading lights to narrate and present the series. Real space uses fantasy space to take back some of its' turf! Patrick Stewart has one of the most beautiful voices in the English-speaking world. His narration is clear, enthusiastic and endlessly engaging. The writing is concise and refreshingly clear of technobabble and the use of special effects and music is slick and competent. Archive space footage from the 1950s to the 1990s are of excellent quality. And one thing is made abundantly clear: We need series like 'Space Age' to help turn mankind away from the insular, navel-gazing flat-Earth tendencies and to help focus us toward a better future. The exploration and eventual colonisation of space has been budget-strangled and hobbled by political ignorance for too long. As the first episode of this series clearly shows: MARS AWAITS!"
