Based on the groundbreaking novel by H.G. Wells, the 1988 TV series War of the Worlds: The Complete Series thrusts science-fiction addicts and action-adventure fans directly into the fiery crucible of two wars that will determine the fate of our world.

An alien Mor-Taxan means business in War of the Worlds.

Decades after it appeared that the ruthless alien invaders were killed off by common bacteria, increased radiation wipes out the Earth-saving organisms. Brought back from suspended animation, the enemy uses their body-snatching ability to adopt human form. Immediately, the invading force begins formulating plans for final genocidal warfare.

In the first season, a small army of human resistance fighters manages to thwart the alien’s efforts to take over the planet. After the battle turns the world in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the second season finds the remains warriors fighting a new wave of invaders.

The cast of the Canadian/American television show is led by Jared Martin and Linda Mason Green.

The 11-disc collection features both seasons of the show, which clocks in at some 33 1/2 hours.
