5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ben Gosselin on Sept. 28 2004
OK, to have the word "complete" anywhere in here is a joke. These 2 "complete" seasons are missing 25 (out of 45!) episodes, some of them being really good. As an avid fan of the series, I was very excited to hear they were coming out with the "complete" series... only to find out (after buying it, didn't even cross my mind there would be tons missing) that this is only about half of seasons 1-2 eps. Anyways, be warned. This set still has a lot of good episodes, but a lot (and a couple favorites) are missing as well.

I for one, thank those who have voiced their opinion to let others know that this DVD set is missing episodes. I really love the Outer Limits, but I'll not spend one penny until the complete seasons get released! Wake up out there, whoever has the power!

I'm rating the DVD package, not the show itself which I would have gave a 4.5 stars. Almost all DVD series collectors have watched all the episodes already. So, they expect to find all the episodes on the DVD. I'm really trying to understand why they have choosen to include only half the episodes on their DVD. I didn't find any reason so far...

It is beyond my belief. Someone has been taken somewhere out there in the outer limits to come up with such an incomplete set of episodes. I would really like to speak with the decision maker, to understand why. The complete season 3 has been released. So they realized their mistake.
Like many people, I am going to wait for the complete season 1 and 2 before to purchase anything about the Outer Limits. I love the show, based upon true sci-fi short stories. I'm ready to buy all seasons... all episodes, nothing less.
The producer, I guess, didn't have any bad intentions in mind when it comes to release only a few episodes. But, as far as I'm concern, I'm holding off my purchase until the REAL complete season 1 and 2 is available.

If this set contained all 22 episodes of the first season, I'd give it five stars without hesitation. However, what you get is 5 discs with 4 episodes each ("Sandkings" is a two part episode, so you get 19 episodes total).
As annoying as it is to have less than half the episodes, it's still more than what you get in the States. A couple of years ago, MGM released two discs, each with six episodes, using a "theme" approach. How 20th century of them... Every other show, including the original Outer Limits, is being issued in this cherry-picking fashion.
In June 2005 MGM released another four discs of "themed" collections, and now offers them in a box set along with the earlier two releases. That's 30 episodes out of seven seasons' worth.
As for extras, none to speak of.
The Canadian box also features optional Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, which is not available on the U.S. releases. Also, you hear the control voice say "Please stand by" after the intro, which is not on the U.S. versions (if memory serves). This was added to the commercial editions of the episodes but was left off when they originally aired on Showtime without commercial breaks.
Between this box, and the Canadian Season 3 box (still incomplete, with only 18 episodes from the third season), and the six US discs, there are only four episodes in common, so you're not throwing your money away by buying both.
Of course, you can decide to save your money and wait for a complete release ... or you can say "c'est la vie" and watch them now. It's a real treat for me as I missed most of these, and as this is one of my favorite shows I enjoy watching the ones I saw once or twice before.
And the more people that buy the series, the more there's a slight chance MGM might wake up and release everything. But you never know...

This collection contains less than half of the episodes from Season 1 & 2. There is no scene selection within the episodes and no closed-captioning. The first episode on my set went wonky for about 30 seconds.
I really don't know they set it up like this. They would have made more money releasing full seasons.
Some of the missing episodes can be found on the specialty DVDs that they have released. I only bought this one to try and complete a collection.
