Trivia

This series is infamous for its overuse of the blue screen effect. Many of the sets weren't even built, but used cheap miniature surroundings with actors inserted via (very obvious) blue screen. Also, many simple (and obvious) household items were used to create the spaceships and the "futuristic" surroundings. See more »

Who loves Lem...
19 March 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

A good series with superb main title music. In Lem's books always the human is in perspective: this series was created keeping that in mind.

Pilot Pirx is a bit clumsy - so he is a lovable character, as he just like us - and he always manages to get around the obstacles here and there with luck or logics somehow.

The visual appearance is primitive and from this distance almost pathetic (flying bread boxes, flowerpots appearing as buildings), but keep in mind that trick shots of other sci-fi series at that time (1972) wasn't better either. Of course we watch it differently in this CGI era, although all we need is just a bit of power of conception. The acting is a little theatrical sometimes, but one can cope with it.

Someone, who watches Space: 1999 and older Star Treks could enjoy this too. And go for reading Lem's books. What Clarke or Asimov is in the western regions, Lem is the same on the east side.
