It's time to go back in time with Tim and Uncle Martin in My Favorite Martian: Time Travelers! This single disc release from Rhino Home Video contains four great episodes of 1960s series. In this set, we see four episodes (mostly from the third season) of the show that involve—what else—going back in time.

Episodes Included:

The first episode on this set is "Time Out for Martin." This is a second season episode in which Tim and Martin go back in time to 13th century England. The other three episodes are all from the third season. In "Martin of the Movies," Tim and Martin go back in time to the early days in Hollywood. Tim, Martin, and even Mrs. Brown go back in time to meet Jesse James in "The Time Machine is Waking Up That Old Gang of Mine." Allan Melville guest stars as Tim goes back to the 1920s in "Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow."


It is very simple packaging here—just an Amaray case, with a picture of a clock on the cover, as well as Bill Bixby and Ray Walston on the cover. This is about what you'd expect for a single disc release. The disc itself also has Bill Bixby and Ray Walston, again with a clock.

Menu Design and Navigation:

There really isn't much to say here. When you put the disc in, a very basic menu comes up. You can either choose Play All or select an episode (they are all listed on the main menu). Tim and Martin are on the Main Menu, and there is a space background, and the theme song plays as the background music. There is no scene selection at all on this set, but chapters are appropriately placed throughout the set.

Video and Audio Quality:

The video quality on this DVD is generally pretty good. One episode is in black and white, while the other three are in color. The episodes seemed to have a little bit of grain and the colors weren't exceedingly vivid on the color episodes (probably more as a result of the fact that this was one of the earlier color shows), but in general, there aren't many problems.

The audio, presented in mono, is fairly decent as well. The audio seemed to be a slight bit low, but it wasn't THAT bad. Unfortunately, there is no closed captioning or subtitles at all on the disc.

Every episode runs at about 25 minutes, so there are no syndicated prints to worry about on this set.

Special Features:

There are no special features at all in the set. Special features would be a good selling point in a basic set like this, but unfortunately, there just aren't any.

Final Comments:

I have no complaints about the episodes on this set, they all seem to be pretty good episodes and the theme of the episodes makes a nice collection. However, Rhino will eventually be releasing the third (and final) season of this show, so all of these episodes will be available on the season sets (1 of them on the already released Complete Second Season, the other 3 on the third season). Although the episodes are great and there are almost no quality issues, I can see little reason to purchase this set when you will (presumably) soon be able to pay twice as much and get 8 times as many episodes. Still, if you are a diehard fan and just can't wait to see these episodes, you might want this set.

Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 4.5/5
Audio Quality: 4/5
Special Features: 0/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 4.5/5
Overall: 4/5
