Not sure why this was made.

Beware of this product.. it's not the same voice cast as the shows.
This set is an abridged, re-recorded version of both series, and although it's nice 5.1 sound, it's not any of the cast that did the 26 pt TV version....
Solid State Society is fine, but if you want that it can be bought seperately for cheaper.
This set is a BIG letdown.
The only reason I give it two starts instead of one is that it has a sweet video transfer and the re-recorded sound track is nice... but the absence of such seminal voices as Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Crispin Freeman, as well as the rest of the excellent cast makes this set, for a fan, undesirable... and no, it's not the same cast as the original GitS either.
