This DVD set arrived in the mail today and I watched the first two episodes.  This is a really cool TV series that arose from the James Bond spy mania of the 1960s.  The boxed set (the box is like a miniature attache case) includes every episode as well as some special features.  Episodes 1 and 2 had some interesting guest stars including Fritz Weaver, Richard Kiel (on screen for about 5 seconds) and a young Slim Pickens.  Season 1 is in black & white.  The other seasons are in color.  Total running time of all episodes is almost 100 hours, so it will be a long, interesting journey to get to the end.  I don't think I've seen this show since I was a little kid and it's great to see it again.

I forgot to mention the MOST interesting guest star from Episode 1:  William (BLACULA) Marshall!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
