Edited Opening Credits

"Just a note for the collectors out there, that the opening credits of most of the episodes in this collection are incomplete. I don't know if Diamond Entertainment did this themselves for some odd reason, or if it's all they had to work with, but it's worth a mention.
Normally, the credits start with the title CRUSADE IN THE PACIFIC, then fade to a shot of waves crashing, with the episode number superimposed. For episodes #'s 3 through 22, however, the credits are only a paused image of the title CRUSADE. . . then go directly to the episode itself. Only the first and last couple episodes have the full credits. Otherwise the image quality seems to be pretty good and the sound is fine. The only other demerit is the completely inappropriate music used for the menu screens (Diamond tends to do this with their DVD releases). It's some funky disco riff that sounds like it was taken from the ABC Movie of the Week credits.
Anyway, the price isn't bad, but there are other editions out there."
