I'm highly tempted to purchase the Highlander Series but it might be too rich for my blood. If anyone can recommend which are the best seasons, I would appreciate it. I guess I'm looking for reviews of each season.


Get them all.

New to DDD question - Can someone comment on how long it generally takes for the "free USPS" shipping to be delivered?

Damn you OP!

Presumably that was during the biannual sale? That's the busiest time of the year for them. Normally it takes them like 3-4 days max for stuff that's in stock, for me anyway.

Damn, I really want the Dawn of the Dead set but can't find anything to go with it. Does anyone know anything about the movies offered in Fright Pack- Walking Dead ?

Sooo good. A really, really great low budget horror movie that spawned 2 even more lower budget sequels. There is a tremendous cult following of them. Part 1 was great, and 2 & 3 were good for what they are worth. I bought the set on Day 1 and dont regret it a bit. A definite purchase.

Herzog's a stone cold fucking GENIUS. Unfortunately, I've read that these sets have poor DVD production, and I know for a fact that they have awful subtitles. I've seen most of my Herzog through Netflix.

I've seen four of them - Kaspar Hauser, Stroszek, Lessons of Darkness, and Heart of Glass. All spectacular.


Awesome. When I'm finally done watching the filmographies of Akira Kurosawa and Hal Hartley, I'll start on Herzog. I might just use Netflix, though. Much appreciated.

I got all 6 seasons of highlander... I knew there was a reason I didn't buy the package from www.legendaryheroes.com .

DVDtalk has reviews of the individual seasons.

Get Sledge Hammer - it's less than half what I paid for it (sigh).

And as for neon genesis evangelion - isn't it a 2-pack of the two movies? which is kind of bad since the first one is completely redundant if you have both the platinum collection and the second movie.

Oh wow, Greatest American Hero and Sledgehammer. Talk about nostalgia.

Tempted to grab GITS 2nd season, which I guess is not a box set but just b1g1 per DVD. Very nice.

Yep, "Death and Rebirth" and "End of Evangelion" specifically. And you're right, DaR is pretty much a waste, the "Death" part gives an overview of the series (some new animation is added, so it's not bad to sit through once or twice), and "Rebirth" is an exact rehash of the first part of EoE. But if you're buying something else for $30, getting this set free (well, technically $15) isn't a bad deal at all.

If I missed something in the details, please feel free to correct me.

I'm in for Tripping the Rift seasons 1 and 2. I didn't figure I'd ever see them new for cheaper than $8.99 a piece.

Thank you for posting, OP!

So far just Titus for me. Maybe the two Neon movies and sleepaway camp now though.

That would be my recommendation. I'm buying the set, but it's out of completion's sake, if nothing else.

As far as I know, all of the new animation is included in the director's cut of episodes 21-24, which is included in the platinum collection.

So: platinum collection + end of eva = everything.

Now, whether you "should" watch the TV ending (25-26), the movie ending (end of eva) or both, and in what order, is almost literally a religious discussion.

Personally, I'd recommend RahXephon instead. (/ducks fanboys).

LOL, Nothing wrong with RahXephon. :)

I personally LOVED the TV ending, and have yet to view the movie.

Personally, I absolutely loved the entire series until the last 2 episodes. Those I hated. Hoping to conclude an amazing series well, I watched the movies. I hated them even more. So my suggestion would be to watch Eva up until the last two episodes, then watch Perfect Blue or Princess Mononoke. Or hell, check out Now and Then, Here and There instead. It's genius. And I'm not even an anime fan.

I'm such a fan of the SE for GitS that I made a vow to get them all even though I knew box sets were coming. DDD has already cut off so much of the price already that I think the DTS Disc, free figurines (or OST or Mousepad and Playing Cards), and in a tin case with a window makes it worth it. Too bad they didn't start this sale after Vol. 7 came out because I would have gotten that and the SE of the first GitS movie.

For those who can't decide if they want to wait, it's a question of how badly do you want Tachikoma figurines. Me. Badly. I need a damn tachikoma game, movie, remote controlled car, etc.

What about tripping the rift? Never watched it and was wondering if its any good. $18 for Season 1/2 seems like a good price to give it a shot.

I'm quoting this question from the first page of the thread because it never got an answer, and I'm wondering the same thing. I almost bought both seasons during the last 20% sale, but waited because I really didn't know much about the show. Is it funny at all? I'd love to hear an opinion or two.

I thought the first season was alright. Nothing to write home about but it had me laughing here and there. They made some changes in the second season and I couldn't get into it at all. Gina Gershon was so much better than Carmen Electra as the voice of Six. And it just seemed like the writing wasn't as good in the second season.


So, the first season is easily worth the $9 but I have a hard time recommending season 2, even at that price.
