Why did you choose this product?
While I have not yet actually played the DVDs from start to finish, I DO remember watching the series on TV years ago. While this series will not appeal to everyone, wifey and I like the ambiance of the movies. Violence and words were properly placed, not over-done. The newest series have their own appeal. They are different in the ambiance, tone, story-lines, etc. than these originals. To me, it is not a question of which set is better, it is the answer: each series does a real good job of being true to the times in which they were made. Wifey and I will again enjoy the stories provided by the original series!...
