But then things start to go wrong. It's little things mostly, like the absence of subtitles on the early seasons, and the fact that the packaging is, after the initial awe passes, distinctly underwhelming. The discs are basically just all the series boxed sets in new packaging, so it's all there, just not as solidly packaged as it could have been. A more cohesive design on the discs and menus would have been nice too, but it doesn't really affect my enjoyment of the discs.
The one major annoyance is the fact that the disc numbering is off. Instead of just marking them "Season one, disc one", they've chosen a curious mixture of "volume 54" and "season three, volume five" and all sorts of other variations. Unless you're watching the discs in sequence it makes it very difficult and tedious to find the right episode - particularly as the later discs have those interminable "You Wouldn't Steal A Car" anti-piracy videos play, unskippable, before getting to the episode listing.
Oh, and just to make things more annoying, the brochure that accompanies the set doesn't match the disc numbers. You look up an episode, count out the disc number (because the brochure uses "season/disc" format), find the disc - and find that the corresponding disc is actually three discs on. And the special features are rarely on the disc the brochure says they're on.
All in all, it's a set that's easy to find fault with, but I suspect most people will quickly make a note of which discs contain their favourite features anyway. The faults are many and annoying, but minor - it's still every episode of a great show, with overall very nice transfers to DVD. So if you can stand the annoyance - of course you can, though let me know if MGM decide to retool the set - it's a box well worth getting.
It is undoubtedly the enclosed booklet that has caused the confusion as it omits a few episodes from its listing, which isn't very helpful at all. As has been mentioned, these are the original discs repackaged. As a result you'll have to put up with the idiosyncracies of the original releases: odd disc numbering (mainly because volume 1 was a "best of season 1" set, volume 2 was the beginning of season 2 etc - the complete season 1 release didn't happen until later, by which time the horse had bolted). At the end of season 2 we also get two season 1 episodes (Hathor and Thor's Hammer) repeated. This must have been done to "fill up" the dvd, but only occurs this once. It's no big deal. It's no surprise to find that this is also the disc that includes two of the so-called "missing" episodes, 1969 and Out Of Mind. Trust me, they're all here!
Again, I'm not sure about the complaints about the packaging either. I'm not entirely sure how else they were supposed to do it short of giving us a box the size of my living room!
In the end this set has done exactly what I wanted it to do - given me the whole series (excluding the movies) and saved me a hell of a lot of shelf space. I previously owned seasons 1 to 6 individually. This box set takes up about a third of the space that those six managed to use.
Now I can settle back and watch seasons 6 - 10, which I have never seen. Great stuff.
There's quite a few extras in the set, though it's just what we have seen before on sequential, better quality video DVDs, also the commentary tracks do not work. If I was to recommended this set, it would be to get it as cheap as possible, to be able to have the series, until you can acquire the more pricey sets.
