Content is fun, but only fascinating in part. About what you'd expect from a decent TV documentary. The IMAX format is lost even on my widescreen setup, and the resulting wide-angle distortion is sometimes a distraction.
Tech note: I also noticed poor colour resolution - distinct colour graduations which I've not seen on other DVDs. Perhaps a coincidence, but I doubt it.
Very disappointing. Sorry to be curmundgeonly.
It's a fantastic collection, and really should be in every video library! I love each tape but am particularly fond of "Destiny in Space". Also includes footage from the Russian MIR space station.
Also, the audio narration is often drowned-out by the background music and is hard to hear.
Otherwise, the shots and scenes are outstanding.
It's kind of creepy watching all of this taking place onboard Challenger.

The sound quality is awful. The background music and sounds are fine, but the narration is way too quiet and can barely be heard over the rest of the sound. Read morePublished on January 23, 2009 by KJ
