Fun show, bad packaging
on July 30, 2010
UPDATE Feb 4, 2011 - I've discovered that this set is incomplete. Season 3, Episode 14 - The Greatest American Heroine, is missing from the set. This was a pilot that wasn't picked up but was released as the final episode of the Greatest American Hero Series. So you'll watch this whole set and miss the final episode. So I'm knocking off another star. If I knew it wasn't the complete series, as it claims, I would probably have still bought it for fifteen bucks. I'll get that much entertainment value of of it. But it's frustrating to watch a series and not get the final episode. So know what you're getting, enjoy it, and just realize you'll have to watch the final episode somewhere else.
While this video series is on Hulu (as of today, at least), it doesn't have the final episode either.
On the plus side, I loved this show as a kid and this set was cheap. On the negative side, the packaging reflects the cheap price. The discs are in black paper sleeves, packed in a single, hokey plastic case. The plastic outer cover on my DVD box is ripped. So I'll need to glue it back down. One of the plastic "clips" that is supposed to hold the paper sleeves was broken when I opened it. No discs were damaged. But now there's only one clip to hold the cheesy sleeves in the cheesy plastic box with broken fastener system.
0 for the packaging, 5 for the show results in 3 stars rating.
I'd have paid $5 more for decent packaging.
It's not possible, from what I can tell, to get a disc out of the paper sleeve without touching the back of the disc.
