1.)Cherished characters and their loveable antics come to life once
again in this wonderful DVD set. Got the blues? Had a rough day?
Need something to take your mind off everything else? Well, this is
the medicine! Even (and perhaps especially) if you were not
fortunate enough to enjoy this series in its prime, you can rest
assured that the totally diverse and awesome group of folks who end
up on the island will bring lots of smiles and loads of laughs!
And, hey...what's not to love about a grumpy, but good-hearted and
often fallible Skipper (Alan Hale, Jr.), a superlatively goofy,
clumsy, yet entirely loveable first mate (Bob Denver), a very rich
yet incredibly endearing aristocrat couple (Jim Backus and Natalie
Schaeffer), a MOVIE STAR (the beautiful Tina Louise), a professor
who knows a lot about everything but little about many things
(Russell Johnson) and an every-day sweetie who can cook anything
that moves or doesn't and you WILL like it (Dawn Wells)! The
variety of exceptional writers and directors bring the group and
island to life in a fashion that makes you wish YOU were there! So
buy it...and GO there!
2.)Great to have this set at a great price! (I picked it up for
$26.99). This set used to hover around the hundred dollar mark, so
when I saw it for such a low price I snatched it up. The funny
thing was, I saw all three season sets at Target for $9.99 each and
snatched them up prior to finding the lower price boxed set here at
Amazon. I returned the season sets because I wanted the Complete
Series Box. The funny thing is, Season Three does not come in the
"fat" DVD case like the retail version I picked up at Target, and
like the other 2 seasons enclosed in the box set. Season 3 comes in
a standard size DVD case with a multiple disc insert to hold all
five discs. It just seems strange that the manufacturer would have
a different version of Season 3 for retail than for the box set,
when the other two seasons seems to be the same ones that I
returned to Target.
3.)The only explanation I could figure out for the revised Season 3
packaging is that the manufacturer is using the boxes designed for
the original release of this title which had double sided discs
originally packaged in cardboard type boxes that pulled out from
the slip case to hold the discs. Possibly, the current
configuration of the two "fat" cases and the single standard case
fit in the same specs without redesigning the original case.
Seasons One & Two both have six discs each, while Season Three
only has five, so it is only logical that the last season would
need less room.
