    I'd have to go with the Highlander season sets from Anchor Bay.....absolutely loaded with material - commentaries(audio & video), interviews, bloopers, featurettes. The interviews are also quite honest when discussing the lesser episodes as well as any problems on set.

    I'd have to go for Seinfeld as well....[​IMG]

    The Get Smart set from last year is the best, most comprehensive set I have ever seen. It put the entire series in one box, with 9 or 10 hours of extras. Yes, Dick Van Dyke and Twilight Zone were also great sets (all by the same DVD producer, BTW), but Get Smart gets the nod as most comprehensive.

    The best sets I have are still MI-5 from the BBC. The BBC in general does a great job on dvd sets, I'd say the Young Indi sets, but as much as I like the historical extras on those sets, I wish there was something, anything, about the actual series.

    The Starburst editions of Farscape are also near the top of my list. If we count single releases, I'd say the Battlestar Galactica: Razor release with both the television and extended version with commentary and extras is impressive as well.

    Just from the sets I own - Twilight Zone would take the top prize. I could only pick a couple nits with the current standard-def "Definitive" release. There's stuff there (extras-wise) I never saw when caretaking the Serling Archives, and the remastering from original elements is fantastic.

    Close behind would be The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Have only scratched the surface as far as watching the box; the remastering I've seen is a cut below the TZ box (using "best available" prints - I've seen slight damage here and there); the bonus features are bountiful and delightful. I look forward to things like "The Alexander The Greater Affair" which I understand only aired in its original form once on NBC and once or twice during TNT's cablecasts - was withheld from syndication otherwise.

    Now to find the time to watch these goodies through!
