I am not old enough to have seen "In Search Of" in it's original 1976-1982 TV run, but I was first exposed to it as a kid via re-runs on A&E in the '90s, and then again on the History Channel in the early 2000s. I always loved all things weird, so the show was a dream come true for me. I especially loved the crazy synthesizer score, Leonard Nimoy's creepy voice narrations, and the campy re-enactments featured on the show. Many of the unsolved mysteries featured on the show have been "solved" since the show's original run. It didn't matter though; this show was just plain awesome. I was really disappointed when the History Channel finally stopped showing the re-runs. Years later, I was able to watch VHS rips of the episodes on Youtube, which held me over for a little while.

When I finally heard that VEI had secured the rights to release the complete series on DVD, I knew that my prayers had been answered. I am happy to say that I just received my copy of the boxset today and I am watching the episodes right now! The box set features all six seasons of the original series hosted by Leonard Nimoy. The set also features the "revival" seventh season from 2002 that was hosted by Mitch Pileggi (from "The X-Files"). There's also a special bonus disc which includes the two original TV specials which were hosted by Rod Serling (from "The Twilight Zone"). Rod Serling was originally going to host the TV series, but he passed away after making the two TV specials and the job was then given to Leonard Nimoy.

The full listing of episodes is as follows:

SEASON 1
1. Other Voices, 2. Strange Visitors, 3. Ancient Aviators, 4. The Bermuda Triangle, 5. Bigfoot, 6. Killer Bees,
7. Earthquakes, 8. The Mummy's Curse, 9. Martians, 10. Atlantis, 11. Psychic Detectives, 12.

I know there is a lot of enthusiasm out there for this set, and I share a great deal of it, but I can't help but walk away a little disappointed at the end result.

To be sure, it's wonderful to have the entire In Search Of... series on DVD at last. As someone who's avidly watched the website TVShowsonDVD.com and the IMDB for possible release information, it's been a long and winding road to get it to this point. And as a person who was fascinated by this stuff as a kid I'm very grateful that I could purchase it at all. While many of these mysteries have since been solved, or debunked, there's a wonderful 70's feel to the material that simply cannot be beat. The overall packaging is solid and the disc cases are robust.

However, the reason I marked the series down to three stars is that I feel these DVD's represent a pretty minimal effort for a series that deserved better. Sadly, this will almost surely be the only attempt to release this series on DVD.

The video quality is good, but appears to be no better than old re-broadcasts of existing VHS-quality stock. It appears that no effort was made to obtain the original (almost certainly 16mm) prints, but realistically there probably wasn't much of a budget for this transfer in the first place. But that's not why I rated this three stars. Instead, it's the lack of any of the promised special features and Closed Captions/Subtitles for the hearing impaired that made me feel less than enthusiastic about the end product.

When this set was first announced, VEI claimed that they were going to attempt to create a documentary with Leonard Nimoy himself. Unfortunately, it's clear that that did not come to pass.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best !! ( Full Listing ) October 16, 2012
Format:DVD
Finally !! I've been waiting for this show to be available on DVD for a long time, I'm so happy right now !! If you are not aware, IN SEARCH OF... is simply one of the best TV shows ever made, a true classic. This show hosted by the legendary Leonard Nimoy was ahead of its time and documented various phenomenas that wasn't "cool" or en vogue like today ( UFOs, Ghosts, Serial killers, Cryptozoology, etc. ). Today there's hundreds of shows about the Paranormal or strange phenomenas, it's all over the place. But back in the late 70's - early 80's there was only one show who dared to talk about the Paranormal and other mysteries, and that was IN SEARCH OF...

On this set you'll find all the legendary episodes: Bigfoot, Jack the Ripper, DB Cooper, Ghosts, UFOs, the Loch Ness Monster, Jimmy Hoffa, the death of Marilyn Monroe, the disappearance of Michael Rockefeller, the Bermuda Triangle, the Amityville horror, Sherlock Holmes, and so many more. This is one of the reasons why this show is so amazing, these episodes covers so many different but fascinating topics ( see the full listing at the end of my review ). One episode might talk about Ghosts, then the next might talk about natural phenomenons, then the next might talk about an historical mystery, then the next might talk about an unsolved crime....The show covers so many different mysteries, this is what makes this show so addictive and so unforgettable. The show is always interesting, full of fascinating informations, and is a must-see for anybody who enjoy a good mystery.

So this 21-Disc collection contains the entire series, in all you'll find 145 fascinating episodes. Each episode is 22 minutes long. Also included on this set is a short documentary about the show, hosted by mr. Nimoy himself.

I don't get it...why does Amazon.ca list it for $74? The U.S. price is...
Thanks for the heads up. I ordered from Canada and I'm going to cancel my order here. The exchange rate is very close so you're right about the $50 savings. Since it comes out 12/4 I still have options if the price drops.

Subtitles only in Spanish? Thanks for nothing.
So need English if they can not hear everything.
