I suspect this set will appeal mostly, if not solely, to "old timers" (such as myself), as a sort of trip down memory lane; younger audiences are likely to enjoy it only, if at all, as high camp.
Leave us face it: except for the late Ms. McCalla (her looks, not her acting skills), the series was unspeakably bad: plots, writing, dialogue, direction, acting, production, you name it. However, it is not without historical significance. For one thing, it was, to the best of my knowledge, the very first action / adventure TV show to star a female character, just as the comicbook Sheena had been in that medium in 1938, predating Wonder Woman by three years. Also, it debuted in the US in September 1956, with the Hayes code still going full blast and not long after the apex of McCarthyism and the witch hunt on comics that had put an end to Sheena's career on the printed page and all but doomed "jungle girls", the until then highly popular subgenre she begat, to extinction. So, in a way, the (short-lived, one single 26-episode season) series was a breakthrough.
As for the product: image quality is good, given the material's age and origin, with only a few occasional lines here and there. Sound, on the other hand, is disappointing, muffled throughout and all but unintelligible in some episodes; sound quality on the older releases on VHS was actually better. Packaging is rather rushed: next to no information, episodes are not in chronological (airdate) order, and the order on the boxes does not necessarily match that on the discs.
Based on content and product, the set rates a two out of five. Irish alone adds two more stars to it.

The picture is trembling and very contrasted or fuzzyness. The sound is very bad, inaudible sometimes. I'm very disappointed. Irish McCalla deserved better!

Seriously, save your money or burn it(at least it will create a little warmth.) I bought this thing for its nostalgic value but I believe it may be the very worst video transfer I have ever bought. The sound is blurry and in some cases, it is downright unintelligeable. I haven't even opened the 2nd and 3rd discs. I just put them all on the shelf and resigned myself to the fact that this is 15 bucks I'll never see again. The industry in general goes to great lengths to make sure you don't return a movie after the package is opened. I'm guessing they get a pretty good chuckle when they sell a disc like this and know the money is theirs to keep. Pay attention! Don't buy it!

Even tho I know what Alpha Video releases can be like I was taken aback at the sheer awfulness of the quality of all these 15 eps on 3 DVD's. Other reviewers have commented on the sound as being bad. I couldn't understand any of it on some episodes. The picture is barely watchable but with the appalling soundtrack I feel like returning the lot, as I honestly can't watch any more eps, (I have only watched i in entirity and gave myself a headache, then I checked at random 7 more eps, and gave up) and as a "wannabe" fan of Irish I am very upset. Words aren't minced here as I feel other potential buyers should be aware. If you must see for yourself, get 1 volume and check it out, not all 3 as I stupidly did. As a footnote I should add that some of Alpha's releases are OK, but boy you takes yer chances. Oh, and the series looks as tho it might (might) have been fun, so 2 stars, just for that and, as another reviewer said - "For Irish".

While the packaging looks terrific, the picture quality is uneven and often not very good. You will be very disappointed trying to watch these episodes on a big screen TV. However they don't look so bad on a smaller screen like a 15.6 inch laptop screen. If you were a fan of these shows and Irish McCalla you can only hope that a better version of these PD shows in a restored version become available someday. But for now these are probably the best you can get.
