Product Description

Page Fletcher is "The Hitchhiker," walking a lonely road where terror awaits around every curve. Walk with him, and you'll find yourself in some very dark places...places you wouldn't want to visit alone. That's why he's there. That's why he's always there. He won't hold your hand - but he'll make sure the only ones who get hurt are those who deserve to.

Saw a copy of this item in Sunrise today. As previous reviewer noted, "Entire HBO series" is mentioned on the front and back of box. One disturbing piece of info is that the run time is listed on the back as "approx. 12 hr and 30 min". If this is correct, then the best we can expect is the 39 HBO episodes and not the remaining USA episodes. I hope the run time is incorrect.

UPDATE (HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT): Curiosity got the better of me, and I bought this set. Big mistake. Set consists of 6 discs with 5 episodes per disc (ie. 30 total). My guess is that "complete collection" consists of previously issued 3 volumes of 10 episodes each "best of" packages, but I don't have the energy to confirm this. If you are looking for 30 random episodes of this series, then this set is for you. Otherwise, I would give it a pass.

UPDATE #2: In response to Mike Deluca's querry, vendors receive product prior to release date and occasionally copies appear on local store shelves a few days before the official release date. This is how I secured my copy. Subsequent to my review, TVShowsOnDVD (an excellent website) received confirmation from Alliance regarding the 750 minute run time for this release (equivalent to 30 episodes).

everyone here in the comments says that the title is "misleading" because it isn't the complete series. it says nowhere on the case that it's "the complete series", but it does say "the complete collection" which means that it includes all 3 volumes that were released separately by hbo years ago in one set. i am a big fan of the show, but this is pretty much all i need. i felt the episodes they chose for this collection are great episodes, but i also felt that they left off a lot of great episodes such as season 5's "hit and run". that episode is one of my favorites. my favorite episode that is on this set is "man's best friend" about a crazy guy who befriends a dog and the dog does whatever he tells it to do... i won't go into any further detail because i don't want to spoil it but it's a terrific episode with a great twist ending! this is a great boxset, and i recommend it to anyone who is a fan of other anthology shows such as "tales from the crypt", "twilight zone", etc. definitely check it out!

This release of the Hitchhiker TV series is not as "complete" as fans would have hoped - however, it is the Complete series broadcast on HBO - so in that sense, it's not exactly false advertising, as HBO only produced 30 episodes, all of which are gathered here.

I haven't had time to actually sit down and watch - so I can't speak to the quality (or if any content is censored).

I should also note, I purchased this for $22.99 - which was the pre-order price. How Amazon.ca can jack up the rate by $17, I have no idea.

This set is for fans who absolutely need some of the TV series "Hitchhiker" on DVD and who haven't purchased the previous releases.

Some episodes are great, other don't hold up so well over time. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is the complete series, but is instead a collection of some of the better episodes, or perhaps some of the episodes with better-known actors. For the low price I paid, it was worth it, but if you are needing the whole series, you will have to look to another source.

Don't bother, this is not even close to a complete set only 30 of 85, the episodes are in some crazy random order from all 6 seasons. As listed on epguides.com this is how it breaks out Season 1 (0 of 3), Season 2 (2 of 10), Season 3 (11 of 13), Season 4 (11 of 13), Season 5 (3 of 26) and Season 6 (3 of 20).

Not at all what I wanted. Although it says complete collection, there were only 30 episodes out of 85. It did not include the episode I really wanted, "Doctor's Orders". How do I get this episode?
