Looking superb in HD, a huge upgrade over the DVDs from 2006-2008, this ports over all the extras from those sets (with the sole exception being the Edward Norton interview). Nothing new was added unfortunately (I'm sure Kenneth Johnson would have if asked) this is still a must have for fans who want to view this classic series that ran for 5 years (1977-1982) and 85 syndicated episodes. The finest TV series adaptation of a comic book ever made, this still holds up remarkably well, and is quite suitable for its intended family audience, Bill Bixby as David Banner is still admirable, a tragic, yet inspirational hero to us all. A rotten shame it was cancelled without proper closure, and that does depend on your view of those three reunion films from 1988-1990 that Kenneth Johnson was not involved with and are not included here either
First off, it's truly "incredible" to finally have this classic series in a full box set. This series is what made the Marvel Comics character a household name. It was also the star-making series for Bill Bixby, gaining him far more recognition from the public than any of his other series, combined.
Great packaging, and the slim DVDs are nice. The remastering of the 70s show is just spot-on.
For the entire series, we have only two complaints.
1) This box set does not feature the lenticular covers that the individual season box sets feature. This is a disappointment for those who waited to buy the complete box set. Those who waited did NOT get anything extra there for our patience. This is especially problematic and disappointing for those who bought this set early on at full price. As of this writing, the lowest price is $30, which is a VERY nice price for a new set. Despite the nicer price tag for those who wait, the lack of the lenticular art is still a disappointment. Yes, it costs a little more for the special disc cases, but it's something that should be considered for those fans who (like us!) were looking forward to them.
2) Selection of commentary. If you bought the "Pilot"/Married" disc with commentary, you will have already heard producer Kenneth Johnson's commentary. So that is a disappointment there. There are other discs with the same commentary, so why plug "commentary" on those particular episodes if there are ones with the same commentary elsewhere? It's quite frustrating. Speaking of frustrating, Kenneth Johnson makes repeated references to how much more effective the shots could have been had the "morphing" technology existed then, noting the "Wolf Man" style shots of the metamorphosis (as in, take a shot, cut, add more make-up, cut, et al). Our opinion is that it is for that entire reason that the show is so memorable and quaint. Yeah, there are lots of things that could be done different 30 years later, but the series would not be the same had it been done in 2000, as opposed to 1970.
Also, as a special feature, they "re-run" the episodes, "Stop The Presses" and "Homecoming", which, while interesting episodes, what is the point of putting an episode as a special feature on a DVD box set, where you'll see it anyway?
Back to commentary. Prometheus is a GREAT episode to put additional commentary on. The challenge of cutting back and forth from Bill Bixby to Ric Drasin and having to wear the "white eyes" contact lenses for most of the two-parter was terrific. However, we would have liked to see commentary on "The First", discussing Harry Townes (Del Frye) and Dick Durock (Frye's Creature), and how they reacted to the contact lenses and the makeup and such, especially Townes, who was a frequent guest star on 60s television, and has a very distinctive voice. We're sure fans would have loved to hear the genesis of such an episode. Especially since this episode was included on the "Ultimate Television Series Collection" 6-disc box set.
Aside from those two (admittedly minor) gripes, this is a superb box set and definitely worth it! If you don't buy this box set, you will make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
