To the fans looking for the complete collection, grab it while you can! That is despite the season 1 collection. It's got poor special features and weak video quality that's very obvious on the HDTV. I've seen better quality VHS recordings.
Season 2 has the same weak video quality but a few features like occasional commentary and interviews. During the commentary, Bob Tapert's the serious one and Lucy Lawless is laughing at herself like Mystery Science Theater 3000. Certainly interesting to hear her without the American accent. They introduced the concept of Video Commentary, where they show the actors or crew reacting to the episode as they're watching it. You can't watch that instead of an episode (the video commentary is not on the complete episode) but there is some value added to see their reactions.
Season 3 is when the video quality got much better and the features excellent. I'm almost through season 5 of 6 and the features pretty much stay consistent from there.
Overall this is well worth it.
Just wanted to mention, one thing I also love are the black and white pictures on the inside glossy dvd covers. The show's greatest moments are actually compiled on six discs, with the seventh being nothing but extras. The commentary is also wonderful, as its nice to see Lucy [Lawless] and Renee [O'Connor] laughing and enjoying the show just as much,if not more than, as the fans.
It would sure be nice to get them all in a single box, book-style packaging like they did with a very-limited edition Buffy in the UK, but I would be kicking myself for not being able to wait if they did. It's taken over two years to eventually release them all.
The quality of packaging for each season is outstanding, to put it mildly. The seasons are fold-out over-and-over style, which is no problem if your DVD is next to the floor, as mine is, but you sure can't hold it while folding it all out. In the second half of the series, they went to putting two DVD's per fold-out page, instead of one disc per page like the earlier seasons. The small inconvenience is pulling out the front disc to get to the back one. You'll notice the later season's are slightly slimmer for this reason, but when you are up to nine or ten discs including the bonus CDs, they must have felt a need to do something.Read more ›
