Watch: Discovery Channel's 'Movie Magic'

I've been waiting for Discovery Channel's series 'Movie Magic' to come out on DVD for years. I grew up on this show and it's what got me interested in filmmaking to begin with. I remember taping a bunch of the shows on VHS to rewatch and even ordering a latex mask kit from a theatrical store in order to make my own masks (never did).

Nonetheless, it's a still a fascinating look at the special effects used to make films. Watch the first ten episodes below (minus the 2nd ep, which can't be embedded). Thanks to /Film for posting this.
