Five episodes of the series were released on VHS in 1993 under the title RAY BRADBURY'S CHRONICLES: THE MARTIAN EPISODES. The episodes were: Mars Is Heaven, The Concrete Mixer, The Martian, And the Moon Be Still As Bright, and The Earthmen. The episodes, after a single shortened form of the RAY BRADBURY THEATER intro and the modified title, ran consecutively, each ending with individual episode credits. See more »
I saw this on "Home Box Office" (heh! Love that...HBO now) when it first aired. Drew Barrymore's Screaming Woman has always impressed me and still does.
I recently picked up the Platinum Disc Corp DVD set for this series and was pleasantly surprised by the image quality. It's has nice color for the most part but may appear too pink at other times. I doubt the source material was outstanding visually. The biggest problem is something that was not a big surprise: image tearing. This happens when there is a lot of action on screen. It's infuriating that a company does this to a series that isn't available any way else just to save a few bucks. I paid about $25 but I'd pay more for better quality spread across more DVDs. It really sucks! And they could've turned themselves around with this collection. Yey to PDC for releasing these but boohiss for dropping the quality. For that I WON'T BE buying this for Christmas for another member of the family who is a fan. :(
