Unfortunately Universal has decided to release the full series without any extras. There was a review that mentioned that Campbell was against the release of this show and Brisco on DVD--nothing could be further from the truth. He was probably referring to a money issue (or being sarcastic)and the haggling with Universal. Also, the show had such a small cult following I'm sure that impacted the release as well. Campbell was executive producer of this show with Robert Tapert and Sam Raimi.
Delightfully funny "Jack" makes a perfect compliment to "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr." (through no accident its being released the same day at a much lower price--because there are no extras--Universal is hoping that Campbell/Brisco fans will see this, see the price and say, "hey this looks pretty good, too". Can't fault them for a brilliant marketing ploy).
The show is nicely packaged in those slimline DVD holders so they won't take quite as much space on your shelf.
Jack of All Trades reminds me of nothing as much as it does those zany Bob Hope movies. Bruce Campbell has nailed this "persona,' and while he's not aping Hope, he nails the essence of that style with flair.
You'll want to be careful who watches it with you as it's rather spicey tongue and cheek dialogue is not really suitable for teens (who might not want to watch a 10 year old series anyway.)
The series works great for my wife and I and we enjoy it as we do most Bruce Campbell offerings. I still scratch my head over why Bruce didn't become more popular, maybe he doesn't take himself seriously enough, but whatever the reason, he's easy to like and fun to watch, and he hasn't lost a step with Burn Notice.
I can't give this DVD set 5 stars, though, much as I'd like to, because the episodes aren't presented in the proper order. This can confuse some people new to the series. Also, there don't seem to be any extras, which is a pity.
