    I saw this for $8 new. It appears to be the complete serial, on 2 DVDs. Has anyone picked this up? I'm curious about the quality. I don't expect it to be the greatest transfer in the world, it is in a bargain bin after all, I'm just unfamiliar with "Front Row" as a company, and would be willing to pay more for a better version (if available, I've never seen this title on the shelves before).

    So, is Front Row worth $8?

    The Image/Hearst DVD is supposedly the best version. Their DVD of the first serial is excellent (although, has a hint of pixelation...otherwise great).

    Front Row delves mostly in PD stuff. Variable quality at best.

    If it's still in print, try to find the Image versions.

    I've got this front row version. Audio is almost impossible to understand at some points, not even mentioning the poor quality of the picture and its framing. Wish I had saved my money. Unwatchable.
