In its own way SEARCH is a lot like the original The Man From U.N.C.L.E. only with a tad more polish. Although I haven't seen these episodes in decades they're largely not as engaging as I once found them to be. Many of the stories are lightweight and largely thin excuses ofr action scenes and the lead characters to play to the audience.
It worked a lot better when you're a less discerning teenager.
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.
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.
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.
These are the original episodes, as they first aired in the 70's-80's.Read more ›
The studio has also confirmed that the 19-DVD set will include all 144 installments hosted by Leonard Nimoy. 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.
* 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
* 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.
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.Read more ›
