So far I have watched all of Volume 1 and part of Volume 2. I am happy to have purchased the series. I wish they could have colorized them but black and white is ok. Most of the episodes have been interesting that I have watched. I just hope I can finish the rest of the volumes. The main problem is the lack of action but since it took me almost one year to get this set, I will sit through them all.

For those of us who were kids watching these episodes with our families we might have been told to leave the room "we were too young"!!! Now as a Adult viewing them I can see why I was sent to my room. I must have asked too many questions durying the show. I can enjoy them now with a diffrent more mature perspective.
Yes they are a far cry from today's Computer generated special effects and you might even giggle at some of the mechanical effects but the story line in most of them hits true in most cases.And you'll be surprised at how many charcters you will reconginize. My only complaint as usally is the price. Beyound that turn your lights down get some popcorn and enjoy.

This review pertains to the format and packaging of this set rather than the contents of the disc. If you're looking at this page, you likely are familiar with the series and further elaboration is thus unwarranted.

The DVDs are dual sided discs, which is rarely a promising sign of quality. My first order contained a very badly scratched disc, which was promptly replaced by Amazon. The second set I received was in better condition, but this sort of disc integrity issue is far too common with dual sided releases. Check your discs carefully upon receipt.

Additionally, there appears to be two versions of this set. The first package contains inaccurate details for season 2, mislabelling the episode order and disc layout. The second package, which appears newer, correctly lists the episode order and number of discs.

The transfers are passable, but do not appear to be remastered. For the most part, the picture and sound are both clear, yet nowhere near the quality of the recent Twilight Zone releases. There is no supplementary content in this collection.

This collection is certainly worth the purchase if you enjoy classic SF, just don't go in expecting anything particularly special in the presentation of this collection.

I think its fair to say that about a third of these episodes are really good, a third of the episodes are average and a third of the episodes are below average/boring/bad.

But i never said they're not worth watching, the narrator commentator is exactly right when he talks about the lack of natural resources on earth and the lack of love in the world, and belive me he mentions this many times.
Another interesting aspect of this show is the cast, there are so many familiar faces here, you'll be beside youself saying OH MY GOD !!!

I found a lot of the episodes were slow because my mind is conditioned by these current fast paced times and not the early sixties so lucky for me my PS3 has the 1.5 button to speed things up.

I'm not going to go into great detail about this series but its worth watching, maybe even if its only for a historical point of view of the early sixties themselves or science fiction itself

When this box set finally came out ( I had been waiting for over 20 years for the technology to catch up ), I had
to add it to my library of THE most classic film/TV productions ever made. Although the modern redux of the series had some memorable episodes, nothing of its time came close to the inspired writing, innovative cinematography,
haunting musical score and break-through performances of the Original Outer Limits, originally to be titled...
"Please Stand By".
Often mistaken for other programs of the period ( specifically "The Twilight Zone" ), many episodes were so
psychologically effective that they remain imbedded in the subconscious mind of the viewer, resurfacing later
during waking flashbacks or sweaty nightmares. For a television series from the sixties to have such a profound
influence on its viewers lead one to conclude one thing for certain...THEY really were in control! A must for OL fans and for those who appreciate Sci-Fi in its purest and eloquent expression.

Having a weakness for old bad movies and TV programs, I couldn't resist buying this set for under 15 dollars. The drawback to the original Outer Limits episodes is that they should have been a half hour long. "So bad they're funny" really only works if the show doesn't drag on and on in order to fill up a time slot. Eventually, making it through the whole set becomes a test of endurance. The horrible acting and the wide variety of cheesy monsters is amusing at times, but overall the shows are just bad.

I ordered the complete three season set of the Original Outer Limits for a friend of mine for Christmas. It only took a week to reach me which I thought was amazing for this time of year. ( Christmas Rush ).
Only one little concern; During the previous reviews of this set it was stated that disc #4 side 2 was the same as Disc #2 Side-2. This happened on a couple of orders awhile back so hope that the company that makes this set has fixed the glitch. I won't know til my friend watches the whole set.
