You know, I only caught part of an episode in reruns on television and I really didn't remember much about it. Hearing about some of the fairly light reviews on this set, I hadn't thought about picking it up and I really was reserved about buying the set. But, after buying the set and watching the first disk, I have to say that the series really ain't half bad. The disks being single sided was a real bonus.

Picking it up for $21.99 at Best Buy was also the bargain as well. Although I probably won't pick up the second series as the price range ($45) for the same number of episodes and the fact that the cast changed really doesn't warrant the picking up ono the second series.

Are they full screen or wide screen? The european broadcasts were not only widescreen but ran about 50 minutes each.

troy, I appreciate it but I can't justify spending almost $50 on that set especially when its not on my list. I only picked up the first set because it was inexpensive.

The episode on the first season set are full frams and are around 42-44 minutes each.

(hugs his UK recordings) saves me the trouble, thanks, I also hear that they are on the discs in the wrong order, "The Divinity Cluster' is ep.1, not 4.

I can confirm They are in the wrong order.Why? I have no idea.Looks like I may have to check out EZDVD in Austrailia to see about ordering the UK versions.Thanks for the info Rick.

Yeah, the episodes are out of order but considering how much this set is it's well worth the money.

I was a walmart a few weeks ago and purchase Starhunter as it was on for a cheap price. I have watched a couple episodes and it looks like a neat show. It is sad that it only lasted for about 22 episodes.
