I may be in the minority but I really love all four films. However, I already have them on DVD so I see no use to purchasing this. At my age, the picture quality of Blu Ray is not that important.

I also remember when Temple of Doom came out there was a hue and cry over the depiction of child slavery and how it insulted India only to find out there was child slavery going on at the time in India. And Amrish Puri stole my heart (couldn't resist that).

As for Crystal Skull, it incorporates the 1950's fears of communism and how it impacted our country in academia, includes the UFO Phenomena and I think it is quite fun.

Of course, Raiders and Last Crusade are great.

It's Willie Scott, not Willie Shaw.

Weren't the "new" theme tunes Harry O had (the theme changed twice) more new arrangements? Also, Audrey Tautou as a widower?

Count me in the minority too. I agree with your comments about Crystal Skull (the 1950s fear of communism washed through Australia too - but not so much the UFO phenomena).

Nuking the fridge gave me a laugh, and I thought it was intended to be played for laughs (probably puts me in a smaller minority).

Furthermore I also liked the script (which probably puts me in an even smaller minority), and the visual cross-referencing between that film and the earlier films.

Vive la difference!

Re: "Harry O.' Warner Archive first released the second pilot as a stand-alone more than a year ago and it's still available from them which is why it wasn't packaged in the Season 1 set.

Thanks for all the error checking. I'd employ each and every one of you if time and money allowed! smile As it is, I have only so much time to read, re-read, re-edit, cut, paste and upload. It's actually easier if you'd email me instead of writing comments as I don't check this section often, but at least it can be corrected (unlike a recent CD I just purchased, where the liner notes state the film, which was released in 1983, came out in 1982 -- in big, huge letters!).
