Andromeda-Season 1 (Remastered)R1

    This remastered release of Andromeda is, technically, a significant improvement on the previous Region 4 release. The show is presented in its original aspect ratio, with 5.1 surround sound and a modest assortment of extras. It is also much more reasonably priced that the 11 individual discs that made up the previous release and the 12-disc box set version.

    This particular season of Andromeda is available in both Region 1 and Region 2 in a 10 disc set that features a handful of extras that are missed from this Region 4 release (although the Region 4 set has much nicer packaging). The missing extras include:

  • Several commentaries with Kevin Sorbo & producer Allan Eastman
  • Several image galleries, including production art and concept drawings
  • Character Profiles and Actor Biographies
  • Andromeda world glossaries
  • TV Spots

    In terms of economics, the Region 1 version of this season works out a bit more expensive than the local remastered release. Most of the missing extras are text-based information and advertising materials that probably wouldn't warrant the extra cost of importing. If, however, you are looking to purchase the full five seasons a 50 disc box-set is available in Region 1 for about the cost of 2 remastered seasons in Region 4.
