Flashbacks in a box!
Hard to imagine so many childhood memories could be contained in such a small box, but that's certainly the case with the STINGRAY boxed set. Until they turned up on the Sci-Fi Channel a few years back, I had never seen these in color, so the contemporary reality seemed almost as vivid as the memory. (Too bad Sci-Fi is not still running such vintage viewing these days.) Great boxed set, packed with extra goodies for fans, and all on only 5 DVDs. I had a slight problem with DVD #5, when it came time to view the final episode, "Aquanaut of the Year." When selecting that episode from the main menu, the chapter stop menu for the episode came up, then the DVD stopped playing (even though I had not hit the stop key). I tried repeatedly to watch this episode, and finally found that the only way I could get it to play was to go to the episode before it ("The Lighthouse Dwellers"), and select the last chapter of that episode. Once it started playing, I then had to use the Chapter Advance button on my remote to manually skip to the start of "Aquanaut." Other than that, the rest of the set worked perfectly. The last line of the last episode was a great way to end the show: As Troy Tempest is the subject of a new "This is Your Life," an emergency breaks out and the Stingray crew scramble into action. Commander Shore looks into the camera to end the "This is Your Life" broadcast--and the STINGRAY series itself--with these words: "Thanks for a great show, but I'm afraid--whether you like it or not--this has got to be the end." Current shows, for adults and kids, should have such class.
