2.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars for series, a big 0 for this horrible DVD set, 4 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE TIME TUNNEL is a wonderful offering from Irwin Allen (his favorite series). It's only flaws are inaccurate renderings of history and too many "alien" episodes. Yet it is well worth seeing, but NOT on this DVD set! Why? Because the episodes each have four minutes of story edited out with a running time of 46 minutes each instead of 50! What is missing is the entire end segments which shows the beginning of the next adventure. This has always been broadcast as part of the show including on the Sci-Fi Channel and U.K.'s Channel Four. This is the first time ever the conclusion of each episode has been cut off and presented on a "bonus" disc as "trailers". To add insult to injury, the trailers are not viewable individually, but as a two-hour-long mess. Another gripe is that the series is not shown in the correct order on disc one.

Forget this set and buy the "complete" episodes in the U.S. NTSC edition!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star series, 5 star DVD set, 4 Jun. 2012

An absolutely wonderful series despite the monster-of-the-week 3rd and 4th seasons. And a beautiful set with incredible paintings on the box, a full-color booklet, all 110 episodes + 3 unaired pilots, a long David Hedison interview, and a whole slew of extras. This set is light-years ahead of the U.S. editions that come on funky accident-prone two sided discs and do not have "play-all". This U.K. edition has only one flaw: the episodes are displayed in production rather than airdate order, making the "play-all" feature about useless. I loved this set so much I bought an extra one for a Canadian friend! And it is available at a great price!

Be sure to check out the superb "SEAVIEW: A 50TH ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE TO VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA 504 page book available from Amazon in July. It has full participation of the surviving VOYAGE cast and is partly written by David Hedison!
