Good Value For the Money I paid!
However THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE COLLECTION!
You Only get a few episodes of each Series!
If you are a serious about collecting each series in its entirety,
then keep looking.The manufactures advertising is somewhat misleading.

If you want a crash course on British tv that aired here in th US during the 60s and 70s this set is the way to go. If you are in a mood for watching some tv from those times you will do no better than this set.
tv series ever made! Curtis and Moore made a great team. This series
should've been on for years. I got this set for The Protectors and
The Prisoner which I haven't seen since I was a kid. The Champions
I don't recall but would like to see it. I thought this was a great
package for the price to see these shows again. If your a fan of
these kind of tv shows this is a great package to start with.
There's a lot of hours of entertainment here, but what level of entertainment is the question.
For me, I gew up in the 60's, it was a really nice trip down memory lane into an era that no longer seems to exist [for the most part].
These were the days when things like smoking and drinking were culturally acceptable on television and in real life, drink driving wasn't the taboo then it is now either - expect it.
The series are from the late 60's to early '70's and reflect the times and values.
Being British in origin there's next to no language, the odd dead body that shows up is remarkably gore free and when people get "eliminated" they just tend to fall down.
Watched in the frame of reference, they're still very good although quite dated. Anyone trying to put todays special effect standards into made for TV shows of that era will be sadly disappointed.
The box set is nicely presented and will make an excellent gift. The contents are nicely laid out and I personally found them very enjoyable. They don't contain every episode from each of the series, but a really good representative sample is here at least.
Sit back, relax and enjoy, with the right expectations you will have quite a few entertaining hours.
