Heck, I'm no reviewer but I'll give you something for I, Claudius.
The show intros look horrible. Why didn't they clean them up, they run before every show? The episodes look pretty nice for their age, I guess as good as they can look.
The sound is mono & you have to turn up the volume to hear clearly, which annoys me. I have only watched a few episodes, but this is the unedited original version. I can tell by the long sequence of naked African dancers that are not in my vhs copy recorded from PBS years ago. I do miss the Alistair Cooke intros from those episodes.
I do not regret the $55 I paid for them, I had to have this show in the best form available. And that, my friend, is not old vhs copies.

Thanks for the simple, straightforward review. I think I will go ahead and order it anyway. I think it's one of those sets that we watch for the content and no so much for the presentation (ala decalogue heh).
