3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly authored, but currently £8 from Fopp., 29 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Carl Sagan's Cosmos [DVD] [1980] (DVD)
As notarf noted, the lack of episode titles on the packaging is fairly shoddy, but this shoudn't be a dealbreaker. Note also that the menu doesn't divide each episode into individually accessible scenes. (Sometimes handy if you just want to quickly dip into it to check something or replay a favourite section.)

However, more annoying is the fact that episodes end abruptly before any credits, taking you back to the main menu, where you then have the option of playing (or not) the "Science Update" done by Carl ten years after the original series, after which the end credits follow.

What would have made far better sense was for each episode to play uninterrupted from the opening titles to original end credits, with the option only then of playing the update (with the dvd "Collectors Edition" credits following on from here).

Also I think they probably should have left this in its native NTSC format. It maybe a problem with the original (I would assume) video source, but this Pal version does look a bit ropey on a big hi-def tv.

But I can't really complain for £8 (from Fopp).
