Me, too--only I found the set at a thrift store and snapped it up for S&L. I've never done the workout itself because I hate, despise, loathe, and abominate squats, lunges, and crunches, and Debbie does 'em all.

I have this one also and don't like it near as much as Slim & Limber mainly because she does stretches on the knees and I have a hard time doing anything on my knees for any period of time and usually end up subbing some other type stretch. Other than those stretches I actually like CIO Express.
Ah, thanks for the tip-off--I'll be skipping the stretches on the knees, too. They're so darn uncomfortable!

Vintage, I'm curious--what didn't you like about Debbie's Cool It Off Express? I bought the DVD for pennies at a thrift store but haven't done it yet.
Yes, that's it. I like it because it doesn't take stretches to extremes the way it can sometimes be done in yoga.

Thank you for all the replies. I just got home for the evening, so I can read through all of the recommendations.
I started my most recent weight loss journey January 2008.
I lost 1/2 of my starting body weight and entered into maintenance May 2011.
Now the real work begins!

I do both Slim&Limber and Cathe's Total Body Stretching's No Equipment routine every week. For a third weekly stretch, I often do the best parts of Slim Series Cool It Off to get it down to 20 minutes.

Haven't found any other stretch routines that are short and thorough.
