1.0 out of 5 stars If you like engineering, this is a TERRIBLE set. March 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The set starts out OK, like with Boston's Big Dig. But even this episode (like all the episodes) is nearly ruined by the soundtrack (incredibly loud and distracting) and hyper-manic editing (which I'm sure causes brain cancer).

But with each successive episode the set degenerates into almost NO engineering! It's true! The screen time instead is taken over by PEOPLE and their petty problems or nonsense. For example, in Venice Flood Gates, they have some worker sing us a song. Huh? Huh? I did not buy the set to listen to Italians sing (badly). I purchased it for, ah, ENGINEERING. By way of contrast, there is another show out there on the Venice flood gates, and the difference is astounding. The latter minutely details the engineering behind the project, and with incredible graphics. Instead, this idiotic show has singing and long, pointless scenes (like a worker driving to the job!).

The producers apparently thought that incredible engineering projects were not enough to engage the viewer. So the whole set is jazzed up like an MTV special, and soap operas replace engineering.

This set should be titled: THE TRIVIAL STORIES OF THE PEOPLE...who build big things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional! July 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. This is a great purchase for the price. It is inexpensive, current, and amazingly interesting. I bought it mostly to watch with my two sons, ages 9 and 7, and they never tire of watching it. The subjects are fascinating. The set has 2 DVDs and each has four episodes. Alot of viewing for a low price.

A great item for an educational tool for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Of The Year December 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Like many, I was a little hesitant on Ghost Hound's price, but it's a series I've been waiting for quite some time, so I took the leap. I'm really glad I did. This is easily one of the best shows of the year. The way it combines both psychological and paranormal elements is outstanding, and unlike anything we've got recently from Anime.

Unfortunately, the series is not dubbed, and that may irk some. But after watching it, I'm glad it remained subbed. The voice work in this release is amazing, and I can't imagine any American dub coming close to it. The Japanese Seiyu are incredible, and it would have been impossible to replicate their work.

This is one of Studio IG's 20th Anniversary Show Pieces, so they spared no expense on it. The visuals in this series are outstanding. The animation is crisp and bright. The colors are vibrant, and the motion very fluid for an anime series.

I also happen to love psychology, and I really respect the amount of research they put into this show. They must have spent a lot of time researching actual mental illnesses and disorders, and it really shows in Ghost Hound.

Everything about this show screams quality, and it's one that belongs in your collection. It's easily one of the best releases of 2009!

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful December 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i love anime & ghosthound is truly unique.
the coloration is almost like watercolor - and maybe it is.
an unusual, mysterious story, that fundamentally involves the viewer with the potential of something beyond...
music, pacing, characters, all contribute to an experience both entertaining & inspirational.

Each of the eight episodes is so well done. They could all easily be watched a second time. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series
Watched it on Netflix and decided I had to get it for my engineer grandfather. It is a great series that talks about the engineering feats that had to be overcome.
