Is that worth it? Is it worth a blind buy?

I think it is, if I hadn't just seen them all a couple years ago I would be all over it. If you like serialized Sci-Fi it's awesome. Many parallels with DS9 (I'm not getting into a debate over which is better), I liked both.

The acting isn't great, the FX are seriously dated, and the production values are lower than typical television.

Despite that, it's easily one of my favorite shows of all time.

It's worth it, but you can find it for cheaper if you are patient (not much though). You might want to just buy the first 3 seasons, if they don't blow you away, it only goes down hill from there.

Best Buy had individual seasons recently for ~$15 each so I'm not sure that $99 is a great deal unless it has some special packaging or slim set.

Warner has done a number of their not-current series as complete boxes, like Full House, Gilligan, etc., but I don't know if they've ever released a complete set this long after finishing the series. What would be nice, of course, and what you're probably asking about, would be the seasons AND the movies all together in one set. Maybe they want to be sure the door is closed on any more Lost Tales or whatever.
