Unlock the mysteries in Roswell

So what's behind the famous TV show Roswell? Have you heard of the Roswell UFO Incident? Well, it was the alleged recovery of alien debris, including corpses, from an object which crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, USA, on or about July 8, 1947. Since the late 1970s the incident has been the subject of intense controversy and conspiracy theories as to the true nature of the object which crashed. The United States military maintains that what was actually recovered was debris from an experimental high-altitude surveillance balloon belonging to a classified program named, Mogu.

However, many UFO proponents maintain that in fact a crashed alien craft and bodies were recovered, and the military then engaged in a cover-up. The incident has turned into a widely known pop culture phenomenon, making the name Roswell synonymous with UFOs. Generally, it ranks as one of the most publicized and controversial UFO incidents ever. In response to these reports, and after congressional inquiries, the General Accounting Office launched an inquiry and directed the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force to conduct an internal investigation. The result was summarized in two reports.

The first, was released in 1995 stated that the reported recovered material in 1947 was likely debris from a secret government program called Project Mogul, which involved high altitude balloons meant to detect sound waves generated by Soviet atomic bomb tests and ballistic missiles. The second report, was released in 1997 concluded that reports of recovered alien bodies were likely a combination of innocently transformed memories of military accidents involving injured or killed personnel; innocently transformed memories of the recovery of anthropomorphic dummies in military programs like Project High Dive conducted in the 1950s; and hoaxes perpetrated by various witnesses and UFO proponents. The psychological effects of time compression and confusion about when events occurred explained the discrepancy with the years in question. These reports were dismissed by UFO proponents as being either disinformation or simply implausible. However, significant numbers of UFO researchers discount the probability that the incident had anything to do with aliens.

Maybe because of the incident, the Roswell TV show was originated. American science fiction television series developed, produced, and co-written by Jason Katims. The sci-fi tv series debuted on October 6, 1999. The last episode aired around May 2002. In the United Kingdom, the TV series aired as both Roswell High and Roswell. The series pilot is based on the Roswell High young adult book series, written by Melinda Metz and edited by Laura J. Burns, who became staff writers for the television series. The show was set in Roswell, New Mexico, site of the 1947 UFO crash popularly known as The Roswell Incident. A story of four teenagers depicted as aliens who appear to be human. Central to the plot are Max Evans, Isabel Evans, Michael Guerin and Tess Harding, who survived the Roswell crash to hatch from incubation pods in 1989, emerging as six year old humans in appearance, but secretly aware of their difference. The relationships between the extraterrestrials and their human companions are a central theme, particularly between leading characters Max Evans and Liz Parker. The three seasons follow the extraterrestrial as they attempt to prevent being discovered by the FBI, the sheriff, and learn more about their alien powers. They also attempt to figure out how to get back to their home planet. The background plot suggests that the four were sent to Earth as cloned replacements for the royalty of Antar, an alien planet. Their counterparts died in a war, and the "Royal Four" were meant to one day return to Antar to save their race.

Till now there is no proofs that the UFO existed in Roswell. It may not be the best Sci-fi shows but you will definitely see yourself in one or more of the characters, and then you will relate in ways you would never have imagined. So enjoy watching the DVD collection of Roswell.

The Adventures of Lilo and Stitch

lilo and stitch, dvd
There's so much adventures in the hit TV series Lilo and Stitch. A story of a Hawaiian girl named, “ Lilo” who befriends, “ Stitch,” a multi-talented alien and the result of a once-evil scientist's lab experiment but for Lilo she's a little dog. The TV series version finds Lilo and Stitch teaming up to track down some 625 similar alien experiments, whose special skills bade fare to plunge the world into hilarious chaos.

To know more about the show, Dr. Jumba Jookiba is put on trial by the galactic governing body for illegal genetic experiments, including Experiment 626, an aggressive and cunning creature that is nearly indestructible. Jumba is imprisoned while 626 is set to be exiled on an asteroid. However, during transport on Captain Gantu's ship, 626 escapes to the planet Earth.

The Grand Councilwoman orders Jumba to work with Agent Pleakley to recover 626 discreetly. 626 survives his escape attempt to Earth, landing in Hawaii, but is knocked unconscious by a passing truck, and is taken to an animal shelter because he is to believed a breed of dog. After the recent death of their parents in a car accident, 19-year-old Nani Pelekai is looking after her younger, more rambunctious sister Lilo. They are visited by Cobra Bubbles, a social worker, who is concerned that Nani cannot take care of Lilo appropriately. The social worker is considering taking Lilo into foster care, however, Nani is very much against this idea as Lilo and her are the only remaining members of her family. After hearing Lilo's prayer in her room asking for a friend (Lilo has no 'real' friends because every girl in her class bullies her), Nani agrees to allow Lilo to adopt a dog. As Nani goes around attempting to find a job, she is forced to bring Lilo and Stitch with her. Lilo uses the time to try to curb Stitch's aggressiveness by making him behave like Elvis Presley. Stitch's antics, although at times they foil Jumba and Pleakley's attempts to capture him, also ruin Nani's chances of getting a job. David, Nani's "boyfriend", sees Nani at the beach, where she had been trying to get a job as a lifeguard.

So what makes Lilo and stitch a huge hit for kids? strays a bit from the cut and dry Disney formula and infuses itself with some very clever and demented humor, which is quite a refreshing change and is probably one of the reasons it did so well in theaters. Another thing that made kids loves this show is because the animation is even fresh for a Disney film, with a return to a very traditional hand drawn look with very little use of computer graphics. Character designs consist of very round and warm shapes along with beautiful watercolor backgrounds for the Hawaiian locations that the story takes place in, relaxing and realistic scenery.

A definitely must see DVD for your kids. Your family will surely enjoy Lilo and Stitch!

Join the Adventure of Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

tv series, tv show
One of the best, most under rated television shows of the early 1990s was The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on ABC. Did you know that The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was based on the Indiana Jones series of films? The TV series  was a follow up on the adventures of young Indiana Jones till he grew up and experienced early adventures, where he gets into troubles, learn more lessons in life and meet various historical figures along the way.

The show primarily starred Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier as the title character, and George Hall played an elderly version of the character for the bookends of most episodes, though Harrison Ford book-ended one episode. The show was created and executive produced by George Lucas, who also created, co-wrote and executive produced the Indiana Jones feature films. Following the series' cancellation, four TV movies were produced from 1994 to 1996 which were based on the series. The TV show provided a lot of the flashbacks for the films. His relationship with his father, was first introduced in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, was further fleshed out with stories about his travels with his father as a young boy. His original hunt for the Eye of the Peacock, a large diamond was also seen in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, a recurring element in several stories. The show also chronicled his activities during World War I and his first solo adventures. The series is also referenced in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, when Indy describes his adventures with Pancho Villa chronicled in the first episode to Mutt Williams.

For those who don’t know how it was made, during the production of the Indiana Jones feature films, the cast and crew frequently questioned creator George Lucas about the Indiana Jones character's life growing up. During the concept stages of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Lucas and director Steven Spielberg decided to reveal some of this back story in the film's opening scenes. For these scenes, Lucas chose River Phoenix to portray the character, as Harrison Ford believed that Phoenix most resembled Ford as a young man. This decision to reveal an adventure of a young Indiana led Lucas and crew to the idea of creating the series. The series was shot in three stages. The first production occurred from 1991 to 1992, and consist of sixteen episodes; five with younger Indy, ten with older Indy, and one with both—for a total of seventeen television hours. The second production occurred from 1992 to 1993 and consist of twelve episodes; one with younger Indy and eleven with older Indy, for a total of fifteen television hours. The third and final production occurred from 1994 to 1995, and consist of four made-for-television movies, for a total of eight television hours. In 1996, additional filming was done in order to re-edit the entire series into twenty-two feature films.

Here is another trivia for the fans of The Indiana Jones, the series was filmed in 23 different countries, traveling over 165,000 miles approximately six times around the world. Cast and crew shot for 152 weeks, making this the longest location shoot in history at that time. The series featured over 1.500 speaking parts, 50.000 extra's for whom over 120, 0000 meals were served. Enough 16-millimeter film was shot to go from New York to Phoenix.

The Memoirs of Band of Brothers: Heroes of our time-Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers, dvd collectionDid you know that the Band of Brothers is a 2001 ten part television World War II miniseries based on the book of the same title written by historian and biographer Stephen Ambrose? It was executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks after their collaboration on the World War II film, “Saving Private Ryan,” in 1998. The first episode was aired in 2001 on HBO and are still running frequently on various TV networks around the world. A story about a true and incredible odyssey of Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Screaming Eagles Airborne Division, U.S. Army from their formation in Georgia 1942 to Berlin and the end of the war in Europe 1945. The demand for, and on, elite paratroopers was unending and they were deployed as the tip of the spear of every major allied offensive the Western Front. Jumping behind enemy lines, often without critical equipment and supplies or lacking enough rest and under terrible conditions, they saw more than their share of hard combat and E Company itself.

There are so many reasons why the series became a hit. For one, as mentioned, it is based on a true story. One of the famous figures in the story was Major Richard Winters, a young lieutenant, Winters volunteered for the fledgling 506th PIR, which was later absorbed into the 101st. He served as a platoon leader and company executive officer in Easy Company during its formative period at Camp Toccoa, Georgia, and later as it prepared for war in North Carolina and England. When Easy's company commander was killed on D-Day, Winters took over and led the company during the Normandy and Market Garden campaigns. He earned the Distinguished Service Cross for his actions against a German artillery battery on D-Day and was promoted to captain. Beloved by his men and respected by his superiors, Winters is considered by many to have been World War II's best company commander.

The series received numerous recognitions and awards. The series was nominated for nineteen Emmy Awards, and won six, including "Outstanding miniseries," "Outstanding Casting for a miniseries, Movie, or a Special," and "Outstanding Directing for a miniseries, Movie, or a Dramatic Special." It also won a Golden Globe for "Best miniseries, or Motion Picture Made for Television," an American Film Institute award, and was selected for a Peabody Award. The premiere of Band of Brothers on 9 September 2001, drew 10 million viewers. However, two days later the September 11, 2001, attacks occurred and HBO immediately ceased its marketing campaign. The second episode nonetheless drew 7.3 million viewers.

So what makes Band of the Brothers different from other war films? Some of the greatest films of all time depict the glory and horrors of combat. In the story of Band of Brothers, the leaders invested in their long term team players and trust them implicitly. In the case of EZ Co. and the US Army, it was the NCO’s, or non-commissioned officers. These were basically middle management and the key to maintaining morale and focus with the troops. Another lesson in the story, the leaders lead the way. They make the right decisions, and even if it is not the right decision, they are always decisive. And lastly, the leaders seek to understand and have empathy for the people who follow them.

Whether you are familiar with this story or not, I recommend this mini-series highly enough! So grab this amazing DVD collection not only for you to entertain but gives you the knowledge about the sacrifices of American soldiers who gave their lives to protect mankind.

Obviously, from the title itself, the series is set in a beach. The TV episodes primarily focuses on the character of Mitch Buchannon, played by David Hasselhoff (also of Knight Rider fame) as he serves as a lifeguard in beach in California. He is join by fellow officers in ensuring the safety, not only of the beach going public, but also of all the people living in their community.

After all, you get to see all the girls in swimsuits all throughout the episode the show helped a lot in launching the careers of now famous actresses and models like Pamela Anderson Lee and Brooke Burns. After their appearances in the series, the two became quite in demand for both TV and film. However, it was not only the men who took to the show. The ladies also got to watch Baywatch, mainly be cause of Hasselhoff, but also for the other hunky male life guards.

But the series is not only all about sexy bodies. In fact, it has a very good story to complement the very good bodies. The conflicts are very solid and true to life. And the show had a very good characterization for the cast, which gave them much depth. One of the of the best plot lines in the series is the relationship between Mitch and Hobie. The series saw Hobie's growth from a kid to a young adult, while Mitch tries to raise him alone in the best way he can. This is seen by many audiences as a mirror of their own problems in raising their kids.

The series is very popular that it ran for eleven seasons. After its initial run, the series still enjoys a massive amount of reruns, not only in the US, but also in other countries as well. The show was also popular enough to spawn a spin off entitled Baywatch Nights and a movie. The series also holds the Guiness Book of Record of being the most watched TV series during its time, with a total of 1.1 billion viewers around the globe.

Also, many homages and parodies have been made of its now iconic opening sequence, adding to its legacy.
