I agree, you're in for a great time.
Since it's not as long as, say, the various Star Trek series', it's something that can be watched in a relatively short amount of time, like a month, and you won't forget a lot that's happened.
When I first got the Starburst editions (single sided), a few at considerable cost, I watched the entire run plus the movie in about 6 weeks.
That was a few years ago, so I think I'm due for a re-watch.
Any chance it'll ever get a blu-ray release? I don't know the specifics of how it was recorded/filmed.
