I personally recorded this series when it originally aired for the first time on ABC-TV in 1998-1999, all 13 episodes are UNCUT . When I recorded the series, I only had one stereo VCR; so 5 episodes are mono, those episodes have low sound (Ep. 4-8), the remaining episodes are in Hi-Fi stereo, and on Ep. 12 it was started late, only by a few seconds (about 5 sec.), really doesn�t affect the beginning, I knew exactly what was going on when I started to watched it, because I think no dialog is missing. When I dub my video recordings to DVD, I make sure it's the best possible playback that includes if necessary adjusting the tape guide roller to improve the tracking, after all these are my master recordings. Unlike other sellers, if a master disc develops a bad spot, which has happen a few times, I can also make a new masters, because I have the original recordings for all of my items for sale. I remember buying from a seller on a different site, and 1 disc had a bad spot, that seller sent me 2 replacements, each time the replacement sent had the exact same bad spot in the exact place, they didn't have the original recording to make a new one.
In 1998, ABC revived the series in a Saturday timeslot. The role of Mr. Roarke was filled by Malcolm McDowell and, unlike in the first series, the supernatural aspect of his character and of Fantasy Island itself was emphasized from the start, along with a dose of dark humor. The supporting cast was also expanded for the new series. There was no attempt to replace Tattoo, with Roarke instead having a team of assistants one of whom was a beautiful female shape shifter who were assigned to help create and maintain the various fantasy worlds created on the island. Apparently these assistants were imprisoned on the island in order to pay off some debt, sometimes hinting that they were in some kind of Limbo.

For the best quality, 3 episodes per disc, except disc 4 which has 4 episodes, all discs were recorded at the flexible speed, a little bit slower than the 2 hour speed (SP), more like the 2:15:00 speed, no compression loss, that way the complete disc is used, for the time allotted, for the best possible quality, making this a 4 discs set. The discs comes in DVD paper window sleeves, the discs comes without labels or artwork, because labels on discs can cause the disc to play improperly over time, all of my DVDs are in the DVD-R, NTSC format (USA), so please make sure, your player will play them.
All discs have interactive menus, making it easy to watch a certain episode.
When I dub my video recordings to DVD, I make sure it's the best possible playback, that includes if necessary, adjusting the tape guide roller to improve the tracking, after all these are my master recordings. First the recording is recorded to the DVD hard-drive at the XP (1-hour) speed, then the commercials are edited out perfectly, then record onto DVD at the flexible speed, thereby using the complete disc, unlike most seller who have to use a certain speed, I have never recorded anything at a certain speed, all recordings are recorded at the flexible speed. Unlike other sellers, if a master disc develops a bad spot, which has happen a few times to me, I can always make a new master, because I have the original recordings for all of my items for sale. I remember buying from a seller on a different site, and 1 disc had a bad spot, that seller sent me 2 replacements, each time the replacement sent had the exact same bad spot in the exact place, that seller didn't have the original recording to make a new one, something to think about when buying rare old TV recordings.
Don't be fooled, by other seller's, claiming theirs are uncut or that they have excellent quality, I've bought some series from other sellers, claiming very good quality, only to find out they had terrible quality, I couldn""t believe they had the nerve to sell such poor quality. My prices are high, because they are rare, 1st generation recordings, not many people, had a VCR back in the late 70's. I bought my first VCR in 1979, costing me over $1200, that is 1979 dollars, that is why, all of my listings, are the original network broadcast and 1st generation. When the first MTS stereo VCR recorder came on the market in 1985, I bought one immediately, which is why my series are in stereo too, I doubt other sellers can say that, Like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Ask any and all questions up front, once you buy it, that's it. Copying is too easy, these days. I offer no refunds, but will happily replace any faulty disc.
Money order or Paypal only.
