Mine was. In 2002 Thunderbirds became my first DVD box set that I purchased. Within a month I had all of the Gerry Anderson "Supermarionation" TV sets along with UFO and Space: 1999. T'birds was the first Sci-Fi show I ever saw, and it had a place in my heart because of it. When it was announced that it was being released on DVD I was there on the day it was released. I purchased a set every few months or so until September, 2006 when I saw an ad for an "Adult Product" aired during a kids show. I dropped my subscription to a Pay TV provider and went TOTAL home video. 11 1/2 years later it amazes me how many sets I have purchased. Needless to say how many of you purchased a "Grail Show" when you made your first purchase?
