5.0 out of 5 stars I had bought the original VHS of this show way ..., Feb. 15 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had bought the original VHS of this show way back in 1993, at a Steve Hackett show. Please note that this DVD is similar to a couple out there, one being Live legends. This is the Complete broadcast while the others omit 2 or 3 tracks. As for the CD, half of it has been released on the Time Lapse CD, as acknowledged in the liner notes. I would have to say that this release is for completists, as most of the songs have been relesased on Steve Hackett's Live Archive series of CD and DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Fly was good. The Return of the Fly was good too, Feb. 10 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this collection because I remember seeing the first 2 movies on TV as a kid. For it's day, The Fly was good. The Return of the Fly was good too. The Curse of the Fly wasn't as good as its predicessors. All in all, a good deal for the price.

LOVE IT! Any fan of The Who would. It was a great way to re-live the concert I saw on that tour. Special nods to the John Entwistle and Keith Moon tributes within the show!

This review is from: 5 Album Set (Audio CD)
These CD's bring back memories from my days in University. I only gave it 3 stars because I only really like 2 of the set (Sons and Fascination and New Gold Dream). But at that price, It's well worth the price if you are a fan of Simple Minds or any of these 5 CD's

5.0 out of 5 stars Munster-rific, Nov. 8 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I`ve been waiting a year for this one.
The shows are all great.
The bonus features are great as well: 3 Biography shows on Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis and Yvonne De Carlo.
The packaging leaves something to be desired. The 3 double sided DVD`s are in a digipack in the shape of Herman Munster`s head. The plastic slip case is a bit too tight, and my digipack is already showing signs of wear. I`m afraid that very soon, the bolts on Herman`s head will fall off.
As Herman might say: Content Goody, Goody, Goody!
As for the packaging: Darn, Darn, Darn!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Munsters on DVD, Sept. 8 2004
What can I say?
This is the second-best t.v. show ever. The Beverly Hillbillies comes in first.
I saw all of the original series as a kid, first run then as re-runs. I last saw the Munsters over 10 years ago, and got to tape all but 2 or 3 episodes.
This set is a welcome addition to my collection. The terrible pilot included!
I've been watching this boxset with my 10 year old daughter, and she laughs almost as much as me. Although I have to explain the odd play on words to her, it's still highly amusing.
We can't wait for the second series to be released.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a word : WALLY!!!, June 11 2004
All I can say is that if you already enjoy Steve Hackett's work, you probably already have it. If you don't: SHAME ON YOU!!!
This is some of his best accoustic work, and there are some nice surprizes also. (Firth of Fifth, Hands of the Priestess)
I cannot say enough about this dvd.

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't comment on SACD, but..., Feb. 12 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tommy (Dlx Ed) (Audio CD)
This is the 3rd and hopefully last cd of Tommy I'm going to buy. I had the double, and then the single cd re-master. CD 1 is the original album, and CD 2 are out-takes and demos.
Is it worth it?
I'd say yes if you are an avid Who fan and completist, as I am.
The casual fan should get the regular re-mastered version.
