The Head DVD Set Rules!!! Aug 12, 2010
Recently, I ordered Amazon.com's
MTV's Oddities - The Head
This review is similar to the one that I wrote for the MTV's Oddities - The Maxx, seen in the link below
The Maxx: The Complete Series
The reason I am writing this review is because, I have been reading the reviews on this item, and they are only so-so, and sometimes, in my opinion, unfair, or unsavory.
People, this is going to be the best version you are most likely EVER going to get.
Yes, this is a burn on demand.
Yes, the discs you are going to get are going to be blue rather than silver.
These are the best burn on demands I have ever seen. The tops of the discs are pro, the packaging is pro.
These go so far as to even have a bar code.
Bottom line, they may as well just be considered official.
This version of The Head has EVERYTHING you will ever need. The episodes are uncut. Within the first 2 episodes I saw things that were NOT on my VHS version.
The Head is a tiny bit more gritty looking than The Maxx, but the show was like that anyway.
Also, unlike The Maxx, the Head is a 3 disc rather than 2.
Amazon has done a great job on this collection, and if other reviews have you thinking against the purchase, DONT. Get them. They are worth it.

Great set Jun 27, 2010
By Michael Holden
I found this while searching for Daria: The Complete Animated Series on DVD and was pleasantly surprised to find this available. Being from the UK I only recall seeing this on one of our UK cable channels during the late 90's and not MTV itself (at least not that I'm aware of). I was also intrigued by the idea that these discs are available as DVD-R's rather than traditional 'retail' style DVD's with the silver backing.
Upon receiving the set I was quite impressed with the quality of the packaging and also the discs themselves. They look as professional as you would normally buy any other retail DVD, the only significant part being the purple backing showing it was burned onto regular DVD-R.
Sadly one of the discs had failed to read which could be the possible downside of it being on a DVD-R (burn failure maybe?), however Amazon have been amazingly kind to return my money and let me keep the original set while sending me a replacement set at the same time.
As for the DVD itself the quality is great and personally the same type of quality as you would get with any other DVD release. Sure the animation looks slightly primitive, and it even did back then, but keep in mind this was most likely a low budget show to begin with and each episode is only about 10-15 minutes long. It was originally part of an MTV show known as "MTV Oddities" which also consisted of the show The Maxx (The Maxx: The Complete Series).
Overall a good buy if you were a fan of the show and interesting to have alongside the Beavis & Butt-Head and Daria connections (for those that didn't know Butt-Head made a cameo on the first episode of The Head while on the first episode of Daria a student in the classroom is wearing a The Head shirt with Jim's face on it).

Blast from the Past Nov 30, 2010
By G. Haynes
I've always liked MTV's oddities. This now gives me the set to watch anytime I desire. The only issue with this set is that Disc #2 does not work with MS RealPlayer (I tried it on two different computers). I sent the first set back thinking there was something wrong with Disc #2, however, the second set was the same way...oh well. It works fine on the TV CD Player. Use a different program if you watch it on the computer.
Excellent Purchase! You Got To Buy This Product! Mar 06, 2013
By Cairo Black
I have purchased items from Amazon before, and I must say this is the best purchase yet. I had my doubts because I read one review that said that this particular item was a "burn on demand" product. That means that they burn the product to a disc(s), package it, and send it out to you. There is no need to worry. This is not some bootleg you purchase off the street. This product is professionally packaged and is very authentic. I loved many of the shows that came on MTV years ago: Beavis & Butt-Head, Aeon Flux, The Maxx, and The Head is no exception. This is a definite buy for anyone that remembers this show and enjoyed it years ago.
love it !! Dec 10, 2012
i chose this because when i first saw it on tv years ago , it was great !! i purchased this for a gift for a family member for xmas !!
