Just purchased it myself and I just started working though the first few clips and it is really good. He starts off quite basic, but at such a pace that it's not boring. He explains vvery well why he's doing things, which I miss in the 3DQuakers ones. And the problems he has with his mic makes it funny at some times. It shows he's used to teaching and he knows a lot of side tricks which I wasn't even aware of it was possible at all. Gonna write a full review ones I went trough it all, but I have other things to do for uni as well.

Another rigging DVD which I really liked was from Jason Schleiffer called Animator Friendly Rigging. It is for Maya, but it is soooooo good and explains every single detail.

And I agree that the Digital Tutors aren't really good if you want to be a real rigger. If you just want to learn basics it's alright, but it goes a loooooot (with some more o's) further than they go..

My 50 Euro cent.

I'm also working through Manny's "Character In Motion" DVD (http://www.3dmastermind.com/) and it is really really good. Highly recommended. I think agree about DT's XSI rigging titles, but that said DT's other XSI stuff is first class.
