Earth: Final Conflict Season 1 on DVD

According to TVShowsOnDVD, EFC Season 1 is finally coming out on DVD on May 5th.

It was slated to come out last summer, but it was canceled for some reason. Now, it is back on, and it seems like this is "more legit" as Universal gave percise info on the set (something not done for the planned last release). It could still be pulled, but as a big fan of the series (the good and the bad) I'm hopeful it won't.

Finally. This is the only season I'll buy and the only season of E:FC that I enjoyed.

Cool. I'll definitely buy it, I could never see myself buying E:FC's later seasons without starting with the first. It would have been nice to have the opportunity (given low enough prices) to buy seasons 2-4 afterwards, but such is life.

Good to hear. I don't think I'll buy it (unless I can find it somewhere later at a really cheap price), but it's nice to know that fans will have the option -- that is, if these release plans aren't scuttled again.
I've been watching some Season 1 episodes again --they're airing on Showcase Action right now-- and I'm reminded of how good (though far from perfect) the series was then. Seasons 3 and 4 were okay, as was the latter part of Season 2, and I don't completely hate Season 5 (yes, most of it was an embarrassing mess, but there were a few watchable episodes), but Season 1 was laying the groundwork for an interesting series. And then Tribune meddled with it.
>sigh< Just another show with so much wasted potential...

We got Season 1 on R2 two or three years ago.

Couldn't care less about Seasons 3-5, but I'd like Season 2 as well. Sadly, no sign

Wow, that kind of looks like a decent set. I may consider getting this.

I saw a few episodes on television, and liked them a lot, but that was many, many years ago. Considering how bad the rest of the series is supposed to be, is it even worth it to bother with the first season?

First season is worth watching and I think 2-4 are worthwhile too, though usually not quite as good as the first. The fifth season is the only one that is truly just bad.

first season - absolutely! (assuming it is decently priced...).

this was probably one of the best first seasons of a scifi show (much better than B5 or DS9's). just pretend that unlike those shows, this one got canceled

Oh, I'm so excited! And commentaries too!!! I wouldn't have dared hope for those, seeing how long it's taken them to put the set out.

That's a good assessment of the series. Despite it's flaws and minor inconsistencies, seasons 1-4 tell a complete story. I would almost place season 4 up there with season 1 (albeit for different reasons).

Jeremiah was on Netflix on-demand for a while (that's where i saw it). season 2 was just so much better than season 1.

question: what did you think of Jericho?
