Loaded with hefty special features and behind the scenes documentaries, these DVD sets are bringing back all the sci-fi action and adventure that made these shows so memorable!
Captain Power And The Soldiers Of The Future was the first TV series to integrate live action, CGI, and interactive effects back in 1987-88. A groundbreaking achievement at a cost of nearly one million dollars per episode, the show paved the way for innovations in technology now used everywhere.
The show was intended to appeal to an adult audience just as much as for children, but it still sparked controversy for its mature storylines and sophisticated writing. The series takes a look at a future where mechanized warfare and technology results in the subjugation of organic life by artificially intelligent machines. In a bold move, the show’s creative team even allowed for the death of one of its main heroes, which alarmed parents’ groups in the 1980s and led to the show’s cancellation after only one season.
Set in the year 2147, the show follows the struggle of an elite group of humans lead by Jonathan Power, armored in specialized bio-suits, they are mankind’s last defense against the onslaught of the mechanized Bio-Dread warriors and the evil Lord Dread! DVD producer and special features director Roger Lay Jr. (Ray Bradbury’s Chrysalis, Toy Masters), scoured the countryside to track down the original tape masters in vaults from Canada to California to New Jersey!
