^That is an amazing set. I am so glad to have it, and glad they included all the extras from ADV's original DVD releases. This was one time upgraded because having this, instead of 27 cumbersome DVD cases was much better. I'm only slightly disappointed they did not releases the other series on Blu Ray. But I'm at least glad to have them. The only downside is that the 3 part OVA only has the *New* English dub, with the same voices used for the series. I prefer the older dub form the 90's, while it inaccurately names several of the characters, those actors were much better suited for the parts.

There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Well Gatchaman II is just coming to BD in Japan in a month or two if I recall. As such, Sentai wouldn't have been allowed to put it on BD here.

Frankly, I'm a little skeptical on dealing with the sequels since they were several years later, so they clearly weren't planned from the get go.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom 4KBD, BD and Digital Set

Also a set that had the 4K releases of X-Men First Class, Days of Future Past and Apocalypse in it. It's exclusive to my work and was only $30.

Something can be planned from the get-go but for various reasons not be greenlit.

Mad Max Fury Road was planned by George Miller basically while he was making Beyond Thunderdome. Took 30 years to get it made.

The way these slipcovers are printed sells the cover design even further: these really look like cheap '70s paperback books!

Truth be told, I had not seen this movie in a long, long time! But seeing as it is close to Halloween, and seeing as this movie and myself are both celebrating our 50th this year, I thought why not? (plus, Criterion had a 24 hour 50% off sale this week online, and I decided to take advantage! :mrgreen: ).

Putting my digital copy up on ebay in a little bit, but so far I love it. The discs are a pain in the ass to get out of the booklet sleeves, though I really like the way they did the packaging. On the other hand, I don't like how they crammed 13 episodes onto each Season 1 disc, but I watched "Moon of the Wolf" and it looks and sounds incredible. It's so bright and clean compared to what I'm used to seeing, and yet, it still appears natural.

I also have to say I find it funny because the two movies are the exact same discs that were sold individually, so Subzero has all of the unremastered versions of the Mr Freeze episodes on it. I do wish they had put the movie poster to MotP in the booklet where its disc is located though. Or at least had made it be one of the lenticular cards it came with. Speaking of which, the cards are pretty cool too as they seem to be 3D versions of the promo art they used back in 92 for the show (I definitely remember the Penguin one from TV Guide Magazine).

I really don't know how WB could do to improve upon this set other than giving Season 1 at least one more disc, but if you haven't bought this yet, you need to do so as it is well worth the $85 I paid. Hell, that's less than a dollar episode, and once I sell off the digital copies, I'll probably have paid around $50 for the entire series, if not less.
