Customer Review

on 18 June 2007
Hello all Crusoe fans . Today I finally bought my copy of this classic series, now officialy released, and I have to say I am a little disappointed . All the episodes are there, including episdode one, in original French .So far so good . There is a fine collection of stills from the series, many of them in colour . There is also a series of items ( press reviews , memorabillia , albums, and more pics from the collection of a dedicated fan ( or some connection to Hoffman ) So far so good . There is also an interview with Hoffman himself as the series came out , but beware , I don't think this is a recent interview . I'm guessing this is an interview Robert gave when the original Network VHS tapes were released . ( The blond interviewing him is also quite stunning ) The interview is quite short and I'd have loved some footage of the island, but apparently , it's a concrete jungle now . Another illusion shattered . So far so good . But this is where it all goes wrong . Network HAVE NOT remastered the series . I really hoped they would have spent the time and money on this , but they haven't . Don't get me wrong , it's still great to watch , and the colour menu is great , but the actual episodes are no better than my own pirate copies I bought from ebay years ago . In fact I think my pirate copies are actually sharper . This is the only real flaw .( apart from the fact that I would have liked a recent interview with Hoffman , and a longer one ) . If Network had spent the money and the effort, it would have been perfect , but alas , I can't complain . I've waited all my life for this , on real DVDs ( it's a two disc set by the way ) . At least it will kill the pirate trade , but I'll hang onto my old four disc set for a while yet .

My recommendation ?? Yes , buy it anyway , you know you want to.
