The Box - Volume 1
- Product Review (submitted on 16 March 2017):
Great to see The Box released on DVD, this was one show I thought I'd never see again. As I was only 13 in 1974 I was only an occasional watcher of the show as my parents as a rule didn't watch it but my grandparents did, so I got to see it at their place on the odd occasion. Watching it now it's actually better than I remember it, not that I thought it was bad before, just better than I remember it. It's probably got something to do with my age now, I probably understand what's going on better than when I was in my middle teens. Also nice to see a lot of the old faces, some of which of course (just like Homicide and Division 4) has passed on. One of the best things about watching the old shows is that you get both the entertainment value as well as the nostalgia value at the same time. Good to see an extended synopsis of the missing episodes, there aren't too many missing episodes for it to be a nuisance. Very much looking forward to the next volume. I give it 4 stars, only on the assumption that nothings perfect, but whoever's idea it was to release these old shows certainly deserve 5 stars.
