Got mine today and I picked the free shipping. Amazon is really turning these orders around! I'll start digging in this weekend.

Also got mine today. I actually have Prime but was one of the later one's to order (sunday night around 11pm), so mine actually shipped yesterday. +1 for Free Two day shipping that over 75% of the time is received in one day ..out of curiosity, how do you guys think this show fares against the likes of Alfred Hitchcock presents and twilight zone?

Received mine today.

On a side note, why do I order things I'll never have time to watch??

I hear you. I usually have a very good sized "to watch" pile, but it has really gotten out of control lately. I think I could stop buying books and movies and still be digging into new stuff 3 years from now.

I know! I don't start a season set until I know I'll have time to finish it all within a few days. Most modern seasons are maybe 15 hours of content max, but some of these older TV seasons are monstrously long.

I have TONS of unwatched stuff, but for some reason I actually opened this up and watched the first 2 episodes. Having never even heard of this series before, I have to say it's not bad at all. A refreshing change from the usual TV stuff I buy.

Old series like Thriller used to run about 52 minutes with 26-39 episodes per season. New series run 42 minutes with 22 episodes per season. I prefer the greater depth of story telling you can get with those extra ten minutes (not to mention the more shows to watch).

Wow. I'll admit I almost never watch network TV anymore - but do current hour-long shows really have 18 minutes of commercials these days?

Mine arrived yesterday, and I enjoyed the first episode. Total blind buy for me.

Here's a great blog I found for newbies and fans alike: http://athrilleraday.blogspot.com/

That's if you DON'T count all the promos that run across the bottom and corner of the screens while the show is playing.

^If you count those as well you'll only have a couple of minutes of uninterruped program... Just one of many reasons I no longer watch commercial TV and just buy what I want to watch.

If this is considered part of their "Winter TV Sale", they claim it ends on Jan. 8... so order now if you want that price.

EDIT: Although it looks like that sale is all Universal TV properties, so this is possbily something different.
