    In the boxset, do the sequels have any extras of note?

    No extras on the others, and Nerds III and IV are 1.33:1 fullscreen

    That's correct, though, isn't it? I think they were both made-for-TV. Though I swore I had no reason to upgrade, the commentary and feature on the original disc sound great. And, though I didn't think much of them at the time, I am a big enough Nerds fan to possibly want the last two movies, as well as the pilot.

    Minor spoiler from third movie:

    That bit with Morton Downey Jr. getting striped from the shower head was really bad, though. I remember that after all these years. If anything, he should have just been a blotchy pink color. Total Private Benjamin ripoff anyway.

    BTW, I see that Nerds II has a really bad rep on the internet. I enjoyed it. Maybe I'm blinded by Courtney Thorne-Smith (when Lewis is putting lotion on her, she looks just like a girl I knew in high school), but I thought it was a fun movie.

    I bought the Atomic Wedgie Collection from Wal-mart yesterday, it was only $5 more than the first movie alone, even though I don't remember the other 3 movies. I love the first Nerds and hopefully the others are ok.

    Were 3 and 4 made in full screen? I dont' even think I've seen those once.

    Doesn't part 4 have a special feature? I read that there is a scene presented in 3D.

    Parts 3 & 4 originally aired on Fox. They were indeed made for TV so the 1:33:1 aspect ratio is 100% correct. I checked out Future Shoip for the box set but they do not have it, only the first film. I'll have to hunt around a bit to see if I can find the set.

    Thanks Andrew. I'll have no problem picking up the set then.
