It's been forever since i watched this show and this set does have some great episodes but there's a couple where on the case says what it's about and it's a totally different story. Still good though!
Good but too many repeats

"Having been a loyal fan of "Unsolved Mysteries", I was pleasantly suprised when First Look Media released the various DVD boxed sets ("Ghosts", "UFOs", "Bizarre Murders", "Miracles", "Psychics" and "Strange Legends")awhile back. While the respective sets were far from perfect in their content, they nevertheless were able to whet my appetite for the time being as I anxiously awaited more volumes. So imagine my suprise when I discovered that First Look media would be releasing a "Best Of Unsolved Mysteries" DVD collection. It seemed to be a great excuse to cull segments from the many seasons' worth of UM episodes. Perhaps some of the more (in)famous segments would finally be brought to digital life. Suffice it to say, that is simply not the case here. Sure, you get an extra bonus DVD featuring five "ghost" segments and five "treasure" segments as well as a less-than-generous sprinkling of new segments throughout the rest of the collection. However, the vast bulk of the collection is composed of segments found in the various aforementioned boxed sets. While this may appeal to newer fans and/or those who did not want to buy the categorized sets, it is a major letdown to fans who already own them. Barring any legal or copyright issues, one has to wonder why First Look didn't mine the rich UM archive for more segments. While the new segments included in this collection are fascinating, it nevertheless leaves fans of the UM DVDs wanting more---a whole lot more.
With near-perfect picture and sound quality, this set makes for a great gift for casual fans. However, loyal fans may want to hedge their bets before deciding to shell out money for this collection."

"First, let me explain that I am an enormous fan of the show. When they first released box sets I was excited, and currently own four of them.
Imagine my excitement seeing this "new" box set on a store shelf last week. I bought it no questions asked and returned home with a friend to check it out.
After doing so, for two reasons I am really disappointed. First, like previously mentioned, the lack of new content. I hope this doesn't mean they have given up on the box sets by lumping skits from each set into one set. It is near impossible to find any of the box sets in stores besides Bizarre Murders, and now this one shows up all over the place with no restocking of the other sets.
My second complaint is with the sloppy work done with the set itself. For one, a segment that is advertised on the box titled "Terrorized Teen" on disc 3 does not even appear! Instead, they put in its place a segment from the Bizarre Murders set with Teresita Basa. We were incredibly disappointed with that as the Teen segment sounded great. Also, the DVD menu for the bonus disc contains a typo for the segment "Mummy's Curse" spelling it "Mummy's Cures." A petty complaint, or a sign that FirstLook really didn't put top notch effort in this release?
I pray they are working on new sets with unreleased segments. There are few other shows more deserving of better or improved DVD treatment than Unsolved Mysteries."
