But, there was nothing.
So I took the plunge (it helped that the Costco here in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, had the set on sale for $47.99 Canadian, cheaper then even the official site was selling it for) and now, here's what you need to know.
First off, the video presentation of the films is the exact same as the individual remastered special edition DVD from years back.
Meaning it's watchable, but not the best picture quality out there.
One of the reasons for this is that the first two mini series where filmed on 16mm film stock, thus creating a slightly grainy picture.
I had hoped that since the extras on the discs where transported onto the fifth disc, that the freed up space would have allowed for better compression, and thus, better picture quality, but that is not the case.Read more ›
Another reason to watch this: you and your children will be seeing a solid and dignified life being put together before your eyes. Anne is an intelligent girl, but she understands the value of hard work. She loves to have fun, can be a bit contrary and capricious, but when the job needs to be done, she will do whatever it takes.Read more ›
Now for the bad news, Sullivan Home Entertainment should be absolutely ashamed to sell such poor quality DVDs. I could have done better myself by copying video tapes and burning them to DVD. The video is very grainy like they made no attempt at all to remaster it. At times the audio does not match the video. Also, there is only a rudimentary menu system. You cannot jump to a particular scene like you can with almost all other DVDs on the market. In addition, the set I received had two of the three disks bad.
The price of $59.99 is extremely high for what you get. Given the quality and other problems, it should be in the $5 bin at wal-mart!
My advice is to rent the videos if you can and save a ton of money by not buying this junk.

The format of these DVDs presented a challenge. They wouldn't play on a DVD player but played just fine on my new blue ray. Everything else about my experience was excellent.Published 10 days ago by Shelly Hendershot
The quality is TERRIBLE. Discs freeze up frequently. When they aren't frozen, the picture is grainy, blurry and jumpy.Published 11 days ago by susan

|Is Anne Of Avonlea included in this Collection?||
Good question, as the description does not say what is on the 5 discs. I too would like to know if Anne of Avonlea is included before ordering.
