Oddities Season 1 DVD

Ep. 1) Mummy Cat: In Obscura Antiques & Oddities a collector offers a mummified cat for sale-is it valuable or putrefying remains? A playwright with a passion for straitjackets visits and a seller brings in musket balls, only to discover their true origin is much stranger.

Ep. 2) Skull Envy: Evan encounters a zany puppeteer in search of a prosthetic limb for his new play. Will he give an arm and a leg for an artificial appendage or will he be left empty handed? Ryan meets a challenge head on when a bone collecting rival requests the creation of an exploded skull. However, someone's skull envy may cost the store money. Then, Mike and Ersan meet a customer who has what appears to be a body in the trunk of his car. After his initial shock Mike has to decide if it is a good purchase or if this deal is dead in the water.

Ep. 3) Spider Prank: A new customer comes to Obscura Antiques and Oddities looking for a high-end monkey skull. Unsure if it can be done, Ryan visits the collections of some of his known contacts in the hope of track down the perfect one. Later, a man is interested in a bizarre item to prank his girlfriend and hopes the shop has exactly what he needs. Evan must find an insect that is prank-worthy or the man will search elsewhere. And a casual shopper is shocked to find out that what he thought was a femur is actually a bizarre bone from a mammal.

Ep. 4) The Model Mortician: A model turned mortician comes into the store with a bizarre request to display her newest fashion line. It is up to Evan and Ryan to scour the city in hopes of pleasing their customer. Meanwhile, a woman comes into the shop looking for a sword. Mike is excited to help her and is even more impressed when he realizes what her talent truly is until she demonstrates it for him. Then, Ersan purchases what he believes is dinosaur feces. Mike is not convinced and makes a bet with Ersan to see who truly knows their coprolites.

Ep. 5) Mummified Hand: A regular comes to the shop with what appears to be an ancient artifact brought back from Egypt over eighty years ago. Mike and Evan hunt for the truth behind it but find that this item may actually be more of a curse. Later, a new customer comes into the shop with her "original" artwork and is looking to sell it. The only problem is her art may be too much for Ryan and Evan to stomach. And an old customer brings in a medical bag full of items...Mike can't wait to find out what treasures are hiding inside.

Buy the Oddities Season 1 DVD, and travel into the weird and wild world of artifact collectors as they trade in skulls, musket balls, straitjackets and more.

      This show is wonderful, however my low review is due to 2 things, 1: This dvd does not have all of the season 1 episodes. It is missing 4. 2: I recieved an opened DVD, and when I called customer service, they told me I had to wait for a label to be shipped to me, then I had to send it back and they had to recieve it before sending me the unopened DVD I purchased as a Christmas present, which I now wont have in my possession come Christmas. I will not be purchasing from here again.

        I wasn't sure if I'd be thrilled with this purchase or not. Despite having several more episodes airing, this DVD only contains 5 episodes and no extras. However, I'm so entertained by this show that I almost didn't mind. I wish Discovery wouldn't be so greedy as to only release a few episodes at a time and charge a lot for several DVDs instead of just one price for one DVD that had all of season one's episodes. But I'm still happy with my purchase.

          Was suprised to see that this video wasn't shrink-wrapped. Just an open box. The video series itself was wonderful, but a little disappointed in the professionalism of the distributor.

                      Love, love, love this show. I wish we had anything remotely similar to the shop near me. I could live in Obscura. This was a perfect gift for my antique-ing mother. I only wish Season 1 was longer. I need more! Looking forward to Season 2 on DVD!

                      Comments about this product:

                      For starters, I LOVE this show. I would give the show five stars, but I'm only giving the DVD three, as it is NOT the complete first season, and there is nothing beyond the episodes to compensate for this. If there were any bonus features, such as behind the scenes, outtakes, trivia, or ANYTHING, I could forgive that the Season 1 DVD is NOT the complete season, but there's nothing. Had I realized that it wasn't the complete season, I wouldn't have bought it, at least not at this price.
                      I will say that the show is fantastic, and one of my new favourite shows. I'm a circus sideshow performer with a house full of odd things, and with as much as I already knew, I've learned quite a bit watching this show. The items are bizarre and fascinating, the staff and clientele interesting and knowledgeable, and the entire show is really just fantastic. If you haven't seen this show, watch it.
                      If they were to re-release this DVD with the COMPLETE season 1, or if they were to add some worthwhile bonus features, I would buy yet another copy because I enjoy the show so much. I hope that they'll release season 2 soon, and I look forward to catching more of season three.
                      In short, the show is five stars, all the way. But I'm only willing to give three stars to a DVD that claims to be the season 1 collection, which is missing several episodes of the season and has nothing else to offer as replacement.

                        Love the show, but i wish there was a blue-ray dvd; the quality of the dvd transfer was just OK. Please note this DVD only includes episodes 1-6, (the pilot episodes) but there are really 9 episodes in season 1. If you buy season 1 on itunes it lists 9 episodes. I hope episodes 7-9 will be included in the season 2 dvd. I would have bought this dvd sooner but i was not aware it was available, i think discovery and the science channel really need to work more on promoting this series. If it wasn't for the internet community and bloggers this show would have been canceled after the first 6 episodes. The main problem is that not enough people knew it existed, and those that did had a hard time following it because discovery kept changing the air times. Then Discovery moved it to the science channel (with out any notice) and not many people have the science channel.[@]

                          Great new approach to reality collecting/antiquing. The items are odd, the store owners are odd, the buyers are odd, and the people who bring stuff in are really odd. A great show to watch. Both informative and just fun!

                                  I would recommend this product for anyone wanting to watch this show. While this dvd contains the first season, it leaves the viewer wanting more. I would have liked to see some extra scenes, bloopers, an introduction about the show, or even a cast bio. I hope to see these extras come to fruition, however, if I know Discovery/Science channel, it will not happen. Also, I find it very unprofessional for a respected channel to sell their show on a DVD-R disc with a poorly laid out and printed cover.

                                        Very disappointed in the DVD. I was expecting a DVD that says Season 1 to have ALL of season 1, not just a few of the episodes. I would like my money back.
