Well it's been less than an hour since the UPS guy left my doorway, and I figured I'd come and speak up about my new purchase.
Lets just say I've been wanting to own this series for a long time now. It was this time last month I finally decided I'd break down and cash out $350-500 and add this gem of a series to my collection. During my price comparison search I happened along the Amazon pre-order for the re-release, and thank my lucky stars I did. Now for only a fraction of the original price, I own one of the most original sci-fi tv shows to ever grace my television. I got it bundled with Peacekeeper Wars to not only give me a reduction on the total price, but to complete the entire experience.
On to the product.
It's a hologram boxset, something you can't tell by just looking at the picture above. Inside the box are 5 dvd cases, all of which also contain hologram covers of their own (each featuring a certain cast member). Cases 1-4 are for their respective seasons, each containing 6 disks a piece. Case 5 contains numerous special features on 2 disks. There is reportedly over 15hrs of special features included in this set, scattered across all the disks. And I honestly can't wait to watch every minute of them.
I'm not going to go into detail about the series itself....that kind of info can be found all over the net. But for anyone that is a fan of the show, but like me, had a hard time justifying it's original price tag. Those days are gone my friends!
This is a must buy for anyone looking to truly complete their sci-fi collection.
Adding in a correction. I know I mentioned "hologram" to describe the box and dvd cases. It's not "hologram" in terms of shifting images. I just couldn't remember the term used to describe the effect. Same sort of effect you would see on collectable marvel or baseball cards. That glossy, tin foil effect. Sorry for any confusion.
