A Nice Trip Down Memory Lane
15 January 2012 | by (Peterborough, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw two of the series at age 12/13 and came back to the dvds with some trepidation, but Pathfinders stands the test of time better than I expected.

Needless to say, for three children (and a pet guinea pig) to be taken on a deep space expedition requires some suspending of disbelief, but if you can swallow that it isn't at all bad. Stewart Guidotti takes a good part as Geoff, the 14/15 year old taking on grown up responsibilities as a member of the crew, while Richard Dean, as the mischievous little brother, is harder to take seriously but has his moment when, under apparent sentence of death because the rocket can only take two people back, he seeks a place on it for his guinea pig, determined to save his pet even if he cannot save himself. Sounds corny, I know, but I found it genuinely moving, and could imagine some children behaving in precisely that way. Their sister, Valerie, is more forgettable, but OK to keep the female half of the audience interested.

If you're used to modern special effects, the 1960 ones take some getting used to, but for my money it's worth the effort. The dvds gave me a nice trip down memory lane.
