This collection of episodes from the TV Show of the same name, without the campaign added, starts one of the best adaptation of Robert Heinlein’s work Starship Troopers for viewing. In this adaptation the MI Marines are actually wearing power suits that protect them from the elements, shields them from radiation and keeps them alive in environments where they would not be able to otherwise. For the DVD the producers have removed all of the beginning and end credits so that you are able to watch the whole as a movie. The show was done in such a way that the episodes would run into one another and build off each other. While it is true that they each would stand on their own they are easier to understand and grasp when they are show all together as one film. They take the best parts of the Starship Troopers movie and then add in more realism and accuracy from the book. You might think that insane but to paraphrase a quote from Doc, “We are fighting giant bugs on freaking Pluto, We are all insane.”

Service guarantees citizenship. Would you like to know more? There are some films that when they come out you will either hate or love with no middle ground whatsoever, Starship Troopers is one of those films. Some people can not stand it no matter what and others will watch it again and again. Is it cheesy? Yes! Could it be called bad SciFi? Yes! But so can Eureka and fans love that one around the world and even it has been using cues from Starship Troopers with its Astraus Project story arc. Myself I have seen the film a few dozen times and my own wife threatened to destroy the disk if I didn’t stop watching it. Does that mean that I am going to give it a glowing review? Maybe, but I know where the film could be better and what it did wrong, I just like the film because of the concept. It is not as good as the animated Roughneck Series but it does introduce viewers to a whole new concept of Science Fiction Horror with a bit of comedy thrown in. MEDIC! To understand that last one you will just have to see the film.
