    I received my Blu-ray set the other day and the quality is just fantastic. Super sharp with great color and contrast.

    For those interested in Irwin Allen soundtracks, then LaLa Land records are releasing a limited edition of only 1000 CD copies of Land Of The Giants (4 x CD Set). Restored and remastered from the original source elements.

    What a wonderful looking set indeed and will be a wonderful edition to the Lost In Space Soundtrack set they did a couple of years ago. I just had to order it. Here's hoping for Time Tunnel and Voyage CD soundtrack sets in the near future.

    LAND OF THE GIANTS 50th ANNIVERSARY SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION:

    Sigh... I had this ordered from Deepdiscount with a 10% discount. BUT I used a virtual CC and failed to account for them hitting it again when the item came back into stock (they hit it once when I placed the order but some vendors will allow that first charge to drop off and do another charge when an item comes back into stock - DD does this and I forgot). That means my order got cancelled as they don't seem to be able to tell you "We are having trouble charging your card - please check this and we'll try again" type message (like Amazon will do). Bummer... or not! They now have a 15% off coupon and it's in stock. I'm about to try again...

    It certainly is... I have been watching a few episodes each evening over the past week or so and am already on disc 6! Really wish the other Irwin Allen shows (Land of the Giants and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) get released on blu soon!

    Two words: Winton Hoch. His splendid cinematography is reason alone to get this Blu-ray.

    I'd been on the fence about buying this set, since I already had the DVDs (and they've mostly been sitting idle on my shelf for years, with many of the episodes still unwatched). But now I'm really glad I got this. Picture & sound are pristine!

    TIME TUNNEL scripts may have gone downhill as the season wore on, but Hoch's photography never did. I've sampled both early & late episodes on the Blu-ray, and they all look magnificent. Hoch's lighting and framing are a textbook example of how to do it right.

    Hoch left VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA to work on TIME TUNNEL. Wish he'd gone back to VOYAGE when TT got canceled.

    My Blu-ray set finally arrived and I watched the first episode last night. All I can say is...WOW!!! The series looks outstanding! Looks like it was shot yesterday. Was certainly worth the wait.

    That remastering certainly imparts that modern-day look to many series of yesteryear, doesn't it?!

    I wonder if there will ever be a US reissue?

    I was shocked just how fantastic it looked! And the best part is, I now get to use my flippers as coasters.

    Why not just get this set?

    I did get this set and love it. But as TIME TUNNEL is an all-time favorite, I would buy it all again on a US issue if there were one.

    I agree it really does look quite beautiful. I watched the first three episodes so far. I like to use these as filler ( for lack of a better term) I might watch a movie but I know I can't sit through another full length movie but I will watch an episode or two of this or another old TV show. Works out great.

    Sometimes, depending on the episode, you ARE watching a movie! :D

    My set arrived Saturday. Of course I opened it immediately and finally started watching last night (I was wanting to finish S1 of Combat! first).

    It looks better than I ever thought it could! Even the menu is a super cool design! I could live without the continuous loop of the theme music. While I like it very much, I do not like any music on a menu and especially not on a continuous loop. If it only played once and stopped that'd be preferable.

    With Lost in Space and The Time Tunnel looking so good on BR I'm absolutely itching to get Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Land of the Giants on Blu.

    I really wonder why TT got out before Voyage ?

    30 episodes vs 110 maybe? Voyage is always last...
