One thing I remember is that whenever Meeno and Jon-Erik did interviews, they always spoke as if they were an equal team. Jon-Erik never spoke of Meeno as just a kid. On screen, they had a very nice relationship. The kid's cute, the guy's hunky, and the adventures are fun.
Generally in each episode, the voyagers drop into one scenario, leave at the first commercial break to another, solve the second problem, then take knowledge from that second scenario back to the first to solve the initial problem. Some of the links are that of situations (Spartacus and Tubbman have slavery in common), and others involve learning a trick to get out of the first (Salem and Houdini)

1. Five episodes per disc. Four discs = all 20 original episodes.
2. Although the footage shows a dash of age with a some graininess, it is much much more crisp than any VHS / Beta recording from back in the day. (To give you an idea -- you can freeze frame and read the months and numbers on the omni!) Plus, the colors look pretty good for an 80s show that sat in the archives.
3. Sound is quality is good, especially for what was originally recorded in mono -- no hiss or the like.
4. One reviewer on here complained that the commercial breaks were badly edited out. That is untrue. The DVD transfer is clearly sourced from the original recordings. It is simply a stylistic feature of many older shows that commercial breaks were made to be very obvious; such breaks seem clunky to our eyes because they lack perfect continuity. (I suspect that that was to allow "leg room" for local commercials to be cued in / synced by an engineer in a local station room.)
For an excellent lowdown on the whole set with screencaps and pics of the discs, visit the site "ultimatedisney" and search for Voyagers. The site's review links back to Amazon's page here, so fear not about heading there for more info.
In the process, getting rid of a number of TIME TRAVEL videos ----- still ----- not on DVD/BDs.
I bought this one and another favorite (UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL) at prices I couldn't say "No!" to.
My wife watched one of the episodes with me. I told her it was a shame that the lead actor, Jon-Erik Hexum, died
in a [dumb] freak accident. He didn't know that the WAD at the end of a "blank" pistol cartridge WILL kill you at
as close as six-feet... even IF you were just pretending to shoot yourself for a dumb prank.
Speaking of DUMB, while I love ALL time travel programs/movies, it often irks me, that a time travel movie has all
the ancient people's languages be modern-English --- yeah, I know, for convenience --- in The Time Tunnel,
Hebrew, Greek, German, Chinese was NO problem either.
I live in Germany. NOT conversant in the language, the last time someone said
"You have lived in Germany for twenty-years now; how's your GERMAN?"
Naturally, I replied with "SHE'S fine! SHE's at work right now."
HIGHLY recommended to TIME TRAVEL fans! Check LOGIC at the door. It's a KID's show [for adults]. Each episode
ends with a slightly different epilogue, such as, "Go to YOUR library and learn more about Cleopatra and George Herman
