We have a good, Sony DVD player and have no problems with any of the many other DVDs we have.

Both Season one and two have GREAT classic shows and never get bored to watch after all of these years, I love the classic reruns.

The 1950s-1960s family sitcom "Leave It To Beaver" had never been made available to fans via any kind of major studio release on home video throughout all these many years of home-video formats (Beta, VHS, LD, or DVD) -- until the long-awaited date of November 22, 2005, when Universal Studios Home Entertainment released "Leave It To Beaver: The Complete First Season" on DVD.

And the first 39 "Beaver" episodes look just terrific here. The video quality for these black-and-white programs is extremely good, and the audio is very good too (by way of the very pleasant and clean-sounding Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtracks that faithfully reproduce each episode's original Mono audio).

Thankfully, Universal has done a bang-up job with the digital transfers here, and these shows (which were originally photographed on film, not videotape) look and sound fabulous on these DVDs.

"Leave It To Beaver" (1957-1963) is one of my all-time favorite television programs, and I'm thrilled to now have the opportunity to collect the series on the DVD format. It's a TV show that, for me, never grows old or tiresome. Wally, Ward, June, Eddie, Lumpy, and "The Beav" will always be welcome on my TV screen.

This "Limited Edition" Lunch Box version of "Leave It To Beaver: The Complete First Season" is both fantastic and a nightmare at the same time. The "fantastic" part is the TV show itself (and the three discs which have all 39 first-year Beaver entries on them....and the quality is excellent here).

The "nightmare" part has to do with the way the discs are stored within the Lunch Box, plus the complete and utter lack of ANY printed episode information inside this package whatsoever. No episode guide booklet. Not even a single-page insert with the ep. titles scribbled on them someplace. Nothing. That's just plain crazy.

I recommend purchasing the standard set, not the "limited edition" collectors version. The lunch box is cool enough, but the DVDs are housed in a cheap plastic "photo album", which will, no doubt, yellow with age (looks like PVC, which is notorious for aging). The "photo album" doesn't stand up buy itself and doesn't physically "fit in" very well with a DVD collection. Would have been much better if they had just put the standard boxed set in the lunchbox. (There is also a large piece of styrofoam in the lunchbox. Classy.) The DVDs themselves are excellent and any LITB fan will be thrilled.

It's frustrating to review this dvd set because I love the show so much, but Universal continues to put out the crappiest product and it's infuriating. "Leave it to Beaver" is classic television and it's great fun to rewatch these episodes without commercials, the problem is, I'd like to be able to see ALL of them. Besides the annoying two sided disks, my set has at least five episodes that freeze up and when they do, there's nothing whatsoever I can do to finish watching the episode. So let the buyer beware...buy the disks and hope you don't have the freezing problem or just continue to watch Beaver on TV Land.

I have been a Leave It To Beaver fan my whole life and was thrilled to see the complete first season come out on DVD. Especially since the show is becoming increasingly hard to find on TVLand's cable network. However, I would like to know what administrative idiot thought it would be a good idea to put trailers for classic horror TV shows such as Kolchak and Amercian Gothic as well as commercials for R rated films such as My Summer of Love on at the beginning of the DVD before the menu comes on? Did anyone think that maybe that kind of material shouldn't be advertised on what is a great family show? Parents beware. You might want to send your kid out of the room until the episode menu comes on.
