I was lucky enough to run into them both, and they're put together very well.Red Gargon wrote: There are some "samplers" out there, condensations of the 1795 and "Quentin's Ghost" stories called "The Vampire Curse" and "The Haunting of Collinwood". They're well-done and inexpensive if you want to sample but don't want the entire box set or to stream the episodes. I'd steer clear of the other "best of" collections featuring a smattering of single episodes from across the series, if you're unfamiliar the story context they will just be nonsense. MPI did put out sequential DVD "volumes" prior to combining them all in the box set (as a continuous weekday show, there aren't true "seasons" marking some kind of production break). However, the volumes are out of print and would be far more expensive to get just a few of those as opposed to the full box. Amazon Prime also has the whole series streaming now, but may be only for certain regions.
Well, in some ways the first film was a condensed version of events that took place over weeks and months on TV. So, it definitely was faster paced.Rick wrote: I pretty much enjoyed the first movie (though I haven't seen it since it played the theaters), and this is from a guy who only watched the show for a week or two when it was first broadcast and was bored to freakin' tears.
So, for whatever that's worth.
