Top critical review
the DVD quality is not much to write about
27 April 2014
Set contains 11 DVDs containing a total of 67 episodes. First 10 discs have 6 episodes each, while the last one holds 7 episodes.
I haven't watched all the episodes, though I have checked each of the 11 discs as to their 'playability'.
The episodes were always great according to what I remember watching them on DD; again, the picture and sound quality are quite good, considering the period when the serial was produced/aired.
The rating I have given reflects the DVD quality/ease of use/playability on DVD player rather than the serial's content.
Discs 1-4 (Season 1) do NOT work consistently i.e. one can never be sure if one of these 4 discs WILL play whey you insert them in your player. I use the DVD players on my 2 computers, a Macbook Pro and a Windows-based machine.
On the MBP: Disc 1 doesn't play at all no matter what; disc 4 may or may not play
On the Windows machine: any of the 4 discs may or may not play
Remaining discs (discs 5-11) appear to be OK in terms of being able to play them on the DVD players.
