CLASSIC 70S AND 80S SCI-FI SERIES

DVD and Blu-RayGIFT IDEAS

There were some truly imaginative sci-fi series on the TV during my childhood, and this page features DVDs containing the best original shows from the 1970s and 80s - not a remake in sight!
If you remember being excited when alien tripods tried to take over the earth in the thrilling BBC sci-fi series The Tripods (which aired in 1984-85), then you've landed on the right page! 
Perhaps you were a fan of the original Star Trek starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as Spock. Or maybe you preferred the U.S. time travel series Quantum Leap, starring Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett and Dean Stockwell as his cigar-smoking hologram Al Calavicci?

So which is your favourite old sci-fi series? I am a huge fan of the BBC comedy series Red Dwarf penned by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor, and starring Chris Barrie, Craig Charles, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn. I also enjoyed the angry, green, shirt-ripping giant The Incredible Hulk, played by Lou Ferrigno, and the computer generated characters in the more recent films just don't do it for me! The 1970s British TV series UFO (by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson) about an alien invasion of Earth was also a firm favourite, as was V, which featured nightmarish carniverous reptilians who want to take over our planet. Who could forget the seventies TV series Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter as Diana Price who transforms in to the lead character, and Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor.
