I bought this series for my boyfriend for his birthday. He couldn't have been more impressed. The DVDs are arranged by season inside of a book that also has three soundtrack CDs. The book itself has very thick pages (to hold the DVDs) and looks great. The book, and the box it comes in, are covered in black canvas fabric. The overall effect was more than I expected. When I looked at buying this from other retailers I was distraught at the price. Overstock.com has this series for $50 cheaper than anywhere else I looked. Buy it now while it's still in stock!
