Five episodes of the series were released on VHS in 1993 under the title RAY BRADBURY'S CHRONICLES: THE MARTIAN EPISODES. The episodes were: Mars Is Heaven, The Concrete Mixer, The Martian, And the Moon Be Still As Bright, and The Earthmen. The episodes, after a single shortened form of the RAY BRADBURY THEATER intro and the modified title, ran consecutively, each ending with individual episode credits. See more »
A must for fans and highly recommended for everybody
Every episode (totally 65) in this TV series is based on a short story written by Ray Bradbury. I have seen most of them and I am more than happy on the way Bradbury's stories are presented on screen. The lack of budget for some episodes at least does not get in the way and the presentation exposes sufficiently well Bradbury's imaginative power.
Bradbury is one of my favorite novelists. He is (perhaps) mostly known for his science-fiction novel 'Fahrenheit 451' and the compound stories of 'The Martian Chronicles'. Nonetheless, his strength I think lies to his short stories that contain a rich blend of many themes ranging from lighthearted comedies to horror stories of the macabre. These episodes (for the most part produced for cable TV) do a more-than-decent job of introducing us to Bradbury's universe and can be an ideal starting point for many viewers to discover Bradbury. 'The Ray Bradbury Theater' is a must for fans and highly recommended for everybody.
