Editorial Reviews

Just over 45 years ago, The Judy Garland Show ended its critically-acclaimed, Emmy-nominated network TV run, after only six months, every Sunday night at 9 PM, on CBS, during the 1963 - 1964 television season. Since that time, those 26 episodes have come to be revered by many as the finest work of this entertainment icon's career. Singing songs both new to her catalog and all the classics expected of her, this is Judy Garland during the peak of her popularity, the only audio-video record of her looking and sounding her best during the concert years portion of her career -- This is a true entertainment legend performing with other legends.

2.0 out of 5 stars This series is a big disappointment. October 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
This series of DVDs seemed to have great promise when announced ... a re-release of out-of-print material previously released by Pioneer and Geneon, with the mention of improved sound quality. This series may have slightly better sound but is painfully lacking due to having been ruthlessly edited. Why they would do this seems incredible ... whole chunks of the shows are missing and the promised extra material is minimal. Searching out used copies of the previous releases would be much more satisfying, if you want my advice. I bought Volume 1 but was unhappy with it. Volume 2 just arrived today and is equally poorly done. I am returning it for refund. Such a huge disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE. January 20, 2011
By Gdog

I remember seeing this show on PBS years ago. Judy is at her best. Her performances of "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "As Long as He Needs Me" are among her best. The quality is excellent but I must say I am VERY disappointed. The liner notes state that Liza sings "You Are For Loving" from her off B'way show "Best Foot Forward". This has been cut and in it's place is an inept 'Lone Ranger' skit with the very untalented Jerry Van Dyke. The liner notes also state that there are outtakes, which is also not true. The Editorial Review on the Amazon product page states that the first episode on this disc is the show with Mickey Rooney. It is NOT. I have to wonder if the person who wrote the liner notes and the person who wrote the Editorial Review even knew what was on the disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars JUDY GARLAND: FABULOUS, TIMELESS TALENT August 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
Infinity Entertainment is re-releasing "The Judy Garland Show" (1963-1964) on DVD. The series was previously available on Pioneer, but those editions have since gone out of print. Infinity promises to release all 26 episodes in a 12 Volume Set-- 2 episodes on each DVD.
The first episode of Volume One illustrates what was wrong with the show. All three major TV networks at the time (CBS, NBC, and ABC) had a bidding war to sign the amazing and incomparable Judy Garland to a weekly TV series. CBS, having won, couldn't decide which "format" to put Judy in (note: nobody "formats" Judy Garland!) and seemed determined to change her from a dynamic diva into an average TV personality. Whatever changes CBS threw at her (and their were innumerable changes throughout the 26 episodes), Judy gamely rolled with the punches and gave her very best.
The first episode starts promisingly; with Judy singing "The Sweetest Sounds" with Count Basie and his orchestra. Later, she also sings "Memories Of You." There should have been more musical magic with Judy and Count Basie. Instead, too much time is wasted on asinine "comedy routines" with series regular Jerry Van Dyke. Please, Jerry Van Dyke never belonged on the same stage as Judy Garland! Mel Torme sings a manic version of "Fascinating Rhythm" while simultaneously playing drums. Obscure folk singer Judy Henske (who?) delivers a strong rendition of Billie Holiday's classic "God Bless The Child," and then joins Jerry and Mel for a pointless parody of Peter, Paul, and Mary called "Peter, Paul, And Irving." Judy Garland, finally and at last, returns to close the episode with the heartbreakingly sad "A Cottage For Sale" and the rousing "Hey, Look Me Over" from the forgotten Lucille Ball musical "Wildcat.

The Jerry Van Dyke skit where he performs to the sound track of the first Lone Ranger radio show. Who else would have thought of this. Comic genius in my opinion.

I've always enjoyed this Superstar from an early age, and remember her one-season short lived TV Show on CBS. Now, thanks to the efforts of many, we can see the very best of The Judy Garland Show whenever we please. Don't delay and add this to your personal collection while still available - you won't be sorry.
