Only seen the series once before and it's been a long time. My brother is a big fan and so I burnt this to DVD to watch with him when I went to visit recently. Naturally, he loved every bit of it. I enjoyed it a lot too, and because it's been so long since I saw the original series I couldn't tell where the interview segments used to be.

Narratively, it's very episodic and doesn't flow like a feature film, but it's a fun alternative to the original and works surprisingly well. The interval was entertaining and very well done as were the various other additions at the beginning and end of the film.

Editing was pretty much seamless as far as grindhouse goes. The nature of the style makes it hard to tell what's intentional. Video and audio was good as I expected them to be and the DVD menus were simple, but well presented. Love the poster art :)
