This is awesome, but it's tough to rebuy for those of us who are already into the collected sets on DVD.
So far Netflix Instant Watch has the first four 'seasons' listed, but that just means Collections 1-4, and that all begins with Episode 210 when Barnabas comes out. I think they did have the separate 'Dark Shadows: The Beginning' separately but I don't see it there now.
I like the individual dvd sets because I can jump around the storylines I don't like, but I think this jumbo massive set is simply all the dvds together, minus the collector book that came with the 40 some collections.
Special features so far include interviews per disc, and yeah, as P said, the episodes are only 22 minutes tops, and they pack 40 of them into the 4 disc sets already. I think this is just one big package, no changes.
I'm so surprised that there are people out there who don't know about Dark Shadows. From whence are ye?!
