    Just read over at DVDTimes that MGM Home Entertainment are to release this superb series (based on the story by Ray Bradbury) in September :thumbsup:
    I don't know how it will have stood the test of time, but at the time (early 80's) it was the best sci-fi series on TV.
    Don't expect too much in the way of audio or video though as its presented in Full Frame with English Mono audio only ;)

    This is a very good adaptation of the book. But the miniature FX's are a little on the poor side. Still it's the content not the style that counts. I for one, will be buying this.

    I'm a HUGE Ray Bradbury fan (I even like the movie of The Illustrated Man) so I'll be picking this up as well.

    As a kid, I vividly remember seeing the world go up in a red ball of flame in this mini-series... I'll look forward to seeing this one again, unconvincing martian sandships included ;)
