I have always been a fan of sci-fi TV shows and The Invisible Man was before I was born, but I always wanted to see it! Now thanks to Madmen Entertainment I was finally able to enjoy this short lived series.
The Invisible Man is loosely based on H.G. Wells’ classic novel and follows Dr. Daniel Westin (David McCallum) is a scientist for the Klae Corporation. Dr. Westin’s latest discovery makes himself invisible, but now the only problem is he is unable to make himself visible again. His boss at Klae, Walter Carlson makes him and his wife Kate work for them as spies in order to keep up funding for his research.
The show starts off with a strong with a 70 minute pilot movie, but as the show goes on it becomes a bit routine sci-fi espionage show, but I still found it a lot of fun to watch. The video and audio are pretty decent for 70s TV. On this 4 disc DVD set you get all 13 episodes in it run. As for bonus features on this release there is a photo gallery and a production paperwork PDF file.
If you love sci-fi TV of the 70s as much as I do and you want to uncover a fun little series and if you have a region 4 DVD viewing availability. Head over to www.madman.com.au and read more about how you can add this series to your Sci-fi collection!
