What in the hell is this? I was excited to get my set today. I opened it up and saw the things that held the DVDs. I knew I was in trouble. It is so cheaply made. You pull the thing holding the DVDs out and the freaking discs either fall out and roll all over the place, or they are so stuck in the thing you have to pry them out. Volumes 1 - 5 and The Beast with a Billion Backs have discs that are so badly damaged, that even after running them through a disc cleaner multiple times, they are still damaged. This is one of the cheapest sets I have ever seen. I got it from Familyvideo. I hope they let me get another set and still keep the one I have so that I can swap the discs. If not, I am just going to send this cheap piece of junk back. To anyone who gets this. Check each disc.
Just a quick update. I wrote to familyvideo. I told them about the damage and of how I would like to keep my set until I got another in order to swap the discs. In deed they said ok and are sending me another set with a return label. They are a great site with good prices on movies. Thank you familyvideo!!!!
This will be the last thing I add to this review. So I got my second set today. Damaged. This one was even worse. Some of the season cases were all bent up. One I thought the DVD was missing. It had just slid down in the case. I was able to fix all but two discs. One from volume 3 and the beast with a billion backs. I have been through this before with sets. So, instead of getting familyvideo to send me another complete set, I just ordered that volume and movie from trusted sellers, used like new on Amazon.Read more ›
What makes this a less-than-perfect collection is the packaging itself. Each season is packed into folded cardboard book-style packaging, and the discs are slipped into cardboard sleeves. Nearly a third of the discs were scratched, but fortunately not to the extent that it would affect playback. One of the discs was also stuck in the glue of the binding of the sleeve it was held in, and I had to peel back the cardboard to be able to wiggle it loose. Needless to say, I was not impressed by the packaging, but I was pleasantly surprised that all the discs were still playable despite scratching.
My suggestion, if you have the patience for it, is to buy The Complete Series if the price seems right, but buy a standard CD/DVD wallet with space for all 27 discs for better storage. (I wound up getting a 28 sleeve wallet and everything fits perfectly.) Be careful when removing the discs from the cardboard, as they have a tendency to stick and scratch, and check the discs to make sure they play. If they do, congratulations! You've got a great show to enjoy. If they don't, return them and hope for an undamaged set next time.

Futurama is a great show no need to go into that, but the way they did the dvds was bad. Luckily I got this on a daily deal a few months ago. Read morePublished 12 days ago by P. Phillips
