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.

1. Ancient Astronauts, 2. Ancient Mysteries

For those of you who have been wondering, these are the original versions of the episodes which were featured in the 1976-1982 TV run (complete with the original red background title sequence). These are NOT the edited versions which were featured on A&E in the '90s, nor are they the other edited versions which were featured on the History Channel in the 2000s. The video/audio quality is as good as can be for an old TV show like this. Granted, it doesn't look like it was filmed yesterday, but the quality is far better than the VHS rips found on YouTube. There were also some rumors that Leonard Nimoy would be filming some new "updates" on some of the episodes. Sadly, these were just rumors. The DVD set does not feature any special bonus features of any kind, just the episodes themselves. I was also hoping that maybe there would be some sort of accompanying booklet to go along with the DVDs, but no such luck again. Aside from those two things, this is a great DVD boxset that I am excited to see after so many years. If you're a fan of Cryptozoology, Ufology, the Paranormal, Ancient History, Mysteries, Conspiracy Theories, etc., then this boxset is for you!

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. Here is the full listing, every episodes for every seasons. Enjoy, this is one of the greatest DVD release of all time !!

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. In fact, there are no documentaries of any kind nor are there even liner notes that provide background on the making of the series. Nothing. The "bonus" features are simply the Mitch Pileggi and Rod Serling side segments presented in their original format. As a long-time fan, I very much wanted to see something, anything, that let Mr. Nimoy explain what it was like to work on the series. Now that Mr. Nimoy has effectively withdrawn from acting and public appearances, an interview would have been so valuable, especially since we have so precious little time left with him. Even if such an interview is impossible, I find it remarkable that VEI couldn't be bothered to produce even liner notes that discuss what has happened to many of these mysteries in the almost forty years since the series was first produced. (For example, much more is known about Carlos the Jackal, the Titanic, The Amityville Horror (confirmed as a hoax), etc.)

As I also noted, there was no attempt to put closed captioning or subtitles in this release. Since I bought the Canadian version to save a few bucks (shame on me), but also assuming it's the same version as was released in the U.S., you'd think they'd at least have required French subtitles for the Quebecois, but nope. They didn't even attempt to obtain the closed captions that must surely have been produced for A&E when they prepared it for broadcast. The lack of effort just tells me that either VEI rushed the product to market on a shoestring budget, or they simply didn't care to make the effort.

I'm sure others won't be bothered by these omissions, and I know I'll continue to enjoy watching the series anyway, but even though I LOVE the show I can't rate this DVD set as five stars because so much was left out of the final product. It's a great time capsule with content that has been presented unmolested, but it's a pretty bare-bones release in the end.

UPDATE:
For perfectionists like I can be (at times), I wanted to post an amended Episode list for the Mitch Pileggi episodes on Disc 7. It's pretty obvious that VEI simply copy/pasted the lists from Wikipedia, because while their titles match Wiki exactly, they don't match the titles in the episodes themselves and the order is not the same as is on the jacket. They also list only three stories per episode, rather than the four that actually exist. Here are the actual Pileggi episodes and the order they appear on the discs (though I still don't know the actual order they aired in.)

DISC 1:
1 The Ghost in Mackey's Bar / Stigmata / The Haunted Hornet / Zombies
2 Catacomb Mummies / The Johnson Bigfoot Encounter / The Secret of Rennes-le-Chateau / Earthquake Predictions
3 Hell/ Vampires / The Tesla Death Ray / Scandinavian Lake Monsters
4 Haunted Plantations / The Doomsday Virus / The Devil / Psychic Spies

DISC 2:
5 Werewolves / The Mummy's Curse / D.B. Cooper's Deathbed Confession / Reincarnation
6 Witchcraft / The Maneaters of Tsavo / The Alien Menace / Ghost Hitchers
7 Ghost Lovers / Possession and Exorcism / Robot Armageddon / The Haunted Campus
8 Faith Healers / The Real Frankenstein / The Shroud of Turin / Alien Ancestors

----
Footnote:
I'm really not often this picky (honest!) but like others I've waited for years, and years, and years for this set. I'm just disappointed that VEI didn't take the time or the effort to give this series the treatment it deserved. (Of course "...it deserved" is a subjective point of view, irrespective of how much said treatment would ultimately have cost to produce ;) I just wish there was enough demand out there to get a stellar version, complete with new scans and cleanups of the old masters, a full subtitle treatment, and a documentary. Alas, the show was probably never popular enough to warrant it. (To reiterate, though, most of this is stuff that I have ignored in rating the DVD, since I know that what I want probably wasn't realistic.)

VEI is continuing its dedication to Leonard Nimoy's work.

Here are the specifications for the DVDs

* Screen resolution is 720x480
* Transferred from Digital Betacam tapes, captured in 10bit 4:2:2 uncompressed format (the highest possible quality from Digital Betacam)
* Encoded to MPEG 2 for DVD
* Audio encoded to Dolby AC3 2.0

They are 144 Episodes on 21 discs including all the Leonard Nimoy episodes plus the re-make with Mitch Pillegi and the original 2 pilot episodes featuring Rod Serling who passed away after they aired.

These are the original uncut broadcast versions and not the edited ones which aired in the 90s on A&E and the History Channel.

Just received "In Search Of... The Complete Series" and all I can say is... BRAVO!!! I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for this series to come to DVD but the wait was definitely worth it. Received my order double boxed, well protected, and in perfect condition. The boxed set itself came shrink wrapped and in a sturdy case. I was even more pleased to find each DVD case was shrink wrapped also. Then the trip down memory lane began. Spent the first day watching the first 3 DVD's and the quality was awesome. So, so glad that this boxed set is absolutely the original version from the 70's (opening, closing, and everything in between) and not the cut up A & E version. Can't wait to watch the rest of the series. Thank you VEI and thank you Amazon!!!

So glad to finally have these on DVD with the original opening theme and music, uncut. Picture quality isn't fantastic, but is very good (I seem to remember the show always looking like this, with a sort of grainy '70s look to it, even when originally broadcast).

I loved this show as a kid and for some reason the synth score would creep me out, not sure why.

Extras include two of Alan Landsberg's other movies (pre-In Search Of I believe) and the Mitch Pileggi episodes from the early 2000s.

If you liked the show as a kid, I highly recommend picking this up. It's one of my all-time favorites and I'm very, very glad to have it on DVD now.

Some people have commented that the picture quality for these DVDs is poor, personally I think the transfers look pretty good considering the show is over thirty-five years old. VEI didn't ignore this fact and it let's the viewer know at the beginning of each DVD with a text that reads "This DVD contains technical anomalies that are inherent in historical footage". (You can view a couple of still images I captured from the DVDs in the image section).

THE ORIGINAL SERIES:(22/23 minutes)
Their are some flaws, sometimes the contrast during the opening credits makes the white text look so bright that the letters kind of morph together, other times it looks sharp and clear. I did experience some problems with the discs, occasionally they freeze for about a second and at the end of one episode the Unviversal logo skipped and played a second time. Other problems include two episodes during season five, the first one being the end credits for "Lee Harvey Oswald" are of really poor quality compared to the rest of the episode, not sure what happen there. The other episode is "The Lindbergh Kidnapping", the audio and video are slightly out-of-synch for the entire episoode. Some good episodes include "Amelia Earhart", "The Lost Dutchman Mine", "Siberian Fireball", "The Money Pit Mystery", "D.B. Cooper", "The Lindbergh Kidnapping", "The Hindenburgh Mystery" and "The Elephant Man".

2002 VERSION:(44 minutes)
As for season seven with Mitch Pileggi, it stinks. This updated version uses the Unsolved Mysteries approach by telling four stories for each episode. The music is awful and the show itself is just a depressing rehash that insults the viewer. No entertainment value here. While the original series used actual historical footage whenever they could, most of the time this version uses dumb recreation segments. I don't think I'll be re-watching this season any time soon, or ever again.

Outside of the two Rod Serling episodes (which seem to have been derived from an ancient videotape), VEI mastered their long awaited IN SEARCH OF DVD box set from the original broadcast masters, and the results are very good indeed. I'm not sure if some Amazon customers need their eyes checked but this set isn't "mastered from old video tapes" and the quality is pretty consistent. Remember this is a 1970s TV series shot on 16mm and syndicated to local stations. It's never going to look "pristine." As it is, I'm scratching my head at some of the comments people have posted: "as good as Youtube" and comparing it to the bootlegs sold on other websites for years? SERIOUSLY? What are you people watching? Outside of the Serling shows, these episodes could never look better than they do here, and they were all licensed from Universal and taken from their own vaults. Not only that, but they're also uncut and include the full opening/end credits with the original theme music. For the 144 (!) episodes, I don't think you could ask for much more -- and really, what extras are they going to include? It would take forever to historically update each and every episode. VEI deserves credit for getting this out there and in a quality presentation at that. A must for IN SEARCH OF fans!

Before television shows like Ancient Aliens, Monsterquest or Finding Bigfoot, there was "In Search of". And what an awesome show it was. In the 1970's there was nothing else like it on television. I remember as kid, being glued to the television set, as Leonard Nimoy would come on and introduce the mystery that the show would be exploring. Those half hour episodes would either fasinate you or scare the crap out of you. It was been a long time but the original series is finally available. These are the uncut episodes like they first came on in the 1970's and 1980's. I can't believe it took this long to finally come out on DVD. There are also two original "Alan Landsburg" movies included, In Search of Ancient Astronauts' and In Search of Ancient Mysteries", that came out before the show. Landsburg's other two movies "The Outer Space Connection" and "Man-beast! Myth or Monster" didn't make the cut. Segments of Man-beast! were used in the "Monster Hunters" and "Yeti" episodes. Oh well, at least the series in available with twenty one DVD's (145 episodes) to enjoy for during the holidays.

Hats off to VEI for making this possible. I have just received my set today and have watched a few episodes. Show looks great. One must keep in mind these were transferred from tapes so you won't have the sharpness of a show transferred from film. These are the original 70's version. Refer to VEI's review for technical aspects of the transfer. These must have been transferred from possibly Analog Betamax to Digital Batacam at some point. Digital Betamax came out in the early 90's. It looks like VEI did the best with the tapes that Universal provided them. The box reads "Copyright 2012 Universal Studios", "Distributed by Visual Entertainment Inc., Toronto Ontario", "Made in Canada". Individual Seasons state "Made in U.S.A." The packaging is of quality. It contains 7 standard DVD size season cases protecting 3 discs each. Thanks to VEI for a job well done.
