    Can anyone give me the breakdown/quality of the R1 Taken set.

    I heard there were problems when this was released so I held off. Where these probelms solved?

    What are the extras like? How long?

    I thought the quality was great, but the set sucked. It was very expensive, and totally skimpy on the extras. I think they totaled 40 mins or so (38 sounds about right). I know press releases are supposed to make a set sound great, but they made it sound like there would be WAY more extras on there.

    I think "Taken" refers to what the customer got.

    Agreed, the extras were nothing more than than had already been shown on the Sci-Fi channel. The price, however, was not that far out of line for other 20-hour packaages, IMHO.

    Yes, it was. Maybe not as much as The X-Files or Star Trek, but way more than Buffy or pretty much any hour-long modern show from network TV or basic cable.

    It was fewer than 20 hours (it was 10, 1.5 hour episodes with the commercials taken out).

    You don't find a $119.99 US SRP expensive? Compare that to Buffy Season 6 ($59.98), Millenium ($59.98), or Stargate SG-1 Season 6 ($69.95) it seems expensive to me. All those sets contain some nice extras as well.
