5.0 out of 5 stars The search is over... Sept. 13 2012

In Search of: The Complete Collection will be released on October 23, 2012. Special features include a documentary hosted by Leonard Nimoy himself.

Also included are the Rod Serling-hosted specials which aired prior to the start of the regular Nimoy series. As a special bonus, VEI is also including all 8 episodes of the short-lived 2002 series, hosted by Mitch Pileggi. A special feature also includes a documentary hosted by Leonard Nimoy himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as you remembered it! Dec 17 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After owning bootleg DVD copies of this series for several years, I'd given up on ever seeing In Search Of... released officially. When I heard this set was coming out, I pre-ordered it instantly and patiently waited for it to be shipped out.

Now that I have this set in my hands, I'm happy to say I'm not disappointed! Since others on here have listed the episodes contained, I will describe some other things.

Packaging:

There are seven DVD cases, each containing three discs. Each case has unique and colourful artwork, with all the episodes contained on each disc listed on the back and inside covers. The disc themselves also have colourful labels which match the artwork shown on each individual season's case. The DVDs come in a nice looking, sturdy cardboard display box that looks great on a shelf. I'm quite impressed.

Video/Audio Quality:

This really comes down to personal opinion. The video quality, as far as I'm concerned, is perfect. If you watched this show when it first aired or on reruns during the 1990's, it will look and sound exactly as you remembered. The audio is crisp and clear, but the video has as obvious film grain to it. To me though, this only adds to the experience of watching this program. The odd/spooky soundtrack combined with the old (but clear) footage is really part of this series' charm. I really couldn't imagine watching In Search Of... on a high definition print with the film grain removed anyway, and I think it would ruin the experience and atmosphere.
The disc menus are fully animated as well, with video previews and the theme song playing in the background.

Other Stuff:

These are the original episodes, as they first aired in the 70's-80's.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best !! ( Full Listing ) Oct. 16 2012
Format:DVD
Finally !! I've been waiting for this show to be available on DVD for a long time, I'm so happy right now !! If you are not aware, IN SEARCH OF... is simply one of the best TV shows ever made, a true classic. This show hosted by the legendary Leonard Nimoy was ahead of its time and documented various phenomenas that wasn't "cool" or en vogue like today ( UFOs, Ghosts, Serial killers, Cryptozoology, etc. ). Today there's hundreds of shows about the Paranormal or strange phenomenas, it's all over the place. But back in the late 70's - early 80's there was only one show who dared to talk about the Paranormal and other mysteries, and that was IN SEARCH OF...

On this set you'll find all the legendary episodes: Bigfoot, Jack the Ripper, DB Cooper, Ghosts, UFOs, the Loch Ness Monster, Jimmy Hoffa, the death of Marilyn Monroe, the disappearance of Michael Rockefeller, the Bermuda Triangle, the Amityville horror, Sherlock Holmes, and so many more. This is one of the reasons why this show is so amazing, these episodes covers so many different but fascinating topics ( see the full listing at the end of my review ). One episode might talk about Ghosts, then the next might talk about natural phenomenons, then the next might talk about an historical mystery, then the next might talk about an unsolved crime....The show covers so many different mysteries, this is what makes this show so addictive and so unforgettable. The show is always interesting, full of fascinating informations, and is a must-see for anybody who enjoy a good mystery.

So this 21-Disc collection contains the entire series, in all you'll find 145 fascinating episodes. Each episode is 22 minutes long. Also included on this set is a short documentary about the show, hosted by mr. Nimoy himself.

I fondly recall watching this series as a child and learning about all sorts of esoteric subjects of the weird. In recent years spiritual successors to this show have cropped up by the dozens; Ghost Hunters, Hunting BigFoot, Paranormal Files. This show actually had interviews with experts (and the occasional kook) and tried to professionally portray one explanation to the phenomenon being explored. Leonard Nimoy as your host is incredible and his late 70's wardrobe is very entertaining! I highly recommend this set to anyone with feeling nostalgic for this old show which is still informative and creepy! I never knew they made so many episodes so its a great bargain!

PROS
* You get the entire original series run with the 90's reboot episodes starring Mitch Pileggi (X-Files)
* Nice production values for DVDs and box
* Inexpensive price for what you get

CONS
* The episode quality is still grainy as you may remember it from the 1970`s....nothing has been restored
* Only available on DVD....
* I was missing disc 1, Season 1....Amazon sent me a new set but this was a bit of a drag. Thanks to Amazon for being so professional in correcting the manufacturer`s error.

This collection is fantastic. Film grains and the like only enhance the experience and charm of watching a old tv show. Never saw this show on tv...(I was born in the 80's)... Read more
