4.0 out of 5 stars What are you looking to get out of this set? January 9, 2009
Format:DVD
That's the question you must ask yourself before buying this complete series set.

For a number of years I have seen the individual season sets available and while I've been tempted on several occasions to pick them up, something had always stopped me. Maybe I didn't consider myself a big enough Little House fan, or maybe I was a bit put off by some of the negative reviews I had read here about them, or maybe it was a little of both. But when I saw the complete series out together in one place, I couldn't resist temptation any longer.

I'll begin by saying that those people who have complaints because of audio/video quality and editing have legitimate gripes. If I were a Little House purist seeking complete, uncut, pristine episodes, I'd be more than a little disappointed, too. However, I'm not necessarily one of those people. Yes, some of the episodes obviously have been edited a bit, and some of the episodes show their age, but not all of the episodes show these traits! A great many of the programs appear to be in absolute pristine condition for this release. As far as I am concerned, even the worst episodes from an a/v standpoint were not enough to hinder my enjoyment of the stories, nor were any of the edits that were made. For the casual LHOTP fan who enjoyed the series growing up as I did, and wants to relive the stories, characters and places again, there is nothing here that is going to put you off.

Additionally, once you get into Season 5, the bonus interviews and special features included in the box set are quite interesting. Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson) in particular provided some great insights into the show, and her audio commentaries on a number of the shows are often quite funny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, this set is a JOKE. Why? Read on. February 3, 2009
By Micah
Format:DVD
I'm not about to go over the seasons here. I will let it be known though that Little House On The Prairie is one of the greatest TV shows ever. It was a time where TV shows were innocent fun and anyone could watch it and not have to worry about foul language or some toilet humor. A time where shows like Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, Leave It To Beaver, were all seen on regular network TV on a daily run. Kids and family alike could enjoy!! Gosh I miss those days of TV shows.

So let's get to the point of why this BOX set is so bad and a one star. Well it's simple, it's chopped up and cut to bits. At least give fans the UNCUT version of the show. It's not like there are commercials to worry about and if you expect us to pay a couple hundred dollars to own the whole show, then put a bit of effort into it and at least give the true fans what we want. UNCUT!!!!

I'm not here to complain about the price. I'll GLADLY shell out plenty of cash for any show that I love, IF the company puts a bit of effort into taking the time to give me the real deal and not this edited down junk. I'll put my cash towards another TV box set that is UNCUT and wait for the real deal here. I refuse to pay for this set though, just so down the road the company can put out a UNCUT version and expect fans to pay again for this.

STOP BEING SO LAZY!!! Give the fans what we want and we will gladly buy the set. Think about it. A fan of any show that is going to go out and buy the complete TV series of a show, is a REAL fan. Do companies actually think that we want some cut down, chopped up nonsense as this?

WE WANT LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE IN A BEAUTIFUL BOX SET, UNCUT!!!!

Thank you for reading, just needed to vent. I'm angry because I love the show and REALLY DID want this.

Micah

1.0 out of 5 stars How is this "Complete"? September 25, 2008
Format:DVD
These are the edited for commercial reruns. They are chopped up. I have no idea how the title can say with any conscience - "complete" unless it means "complete..ly mangled" or "complete waste of money". No thanks I will wait for the UNEDITED versions to come out if they ever do. These are NOT remastered, and these are NOT uncut.

2.0 out of 5 stars LOW SOUND is a definite PROBLEM December 30, 2008
Format:DVD
It didn't bother me that the picture quality was the same as the previously released volumes, which I thought were fine. But I am upset that the sound is noticeably lower (and sometimes a little muffled). This did not occur on the Seasons 1 through 5 that I already owned, which proves the fact that the films being made in the 1970s is not the problem (nor is the sound a problem on any other 1960s or 1970s TV shows I have). No... the manufacturer has screwed up... and it's really annoying when the sound on the DVD musical introduction is loud as can be, and then the actual show starts and the sound drops by half the decibels, forcing one to turn the volume up on the TV to 100% capacity! It was so bad I thought I has a defective set, and had it replaced. The new one is exactly the same, so it's a mistake to be seen in all of these sets. It's probably better to buy the individual Season 1-9 sets even though you lose the cute and lovable packaging. One complaint about the packaging making it hard to get the DVDs in and out of is not valid, by the way. The Complete Set comes in a 3 ring binder. To get the DVDs out, you take the individual sheet that holds three DVDs out of the binder first -- then they slide out easily.
Feb. '09 Update: After watching nearly all of the shows, I would change my star rating to 3 from a 2. The low sound is not as bad on some of the discs as others. But all comments above to the fact that this was never a problem in the earlier releases still apply.

Which set to buy?
There are 2 "complete sets" and both only appear to be available from marketplace sellers (although I found 3 copies of the newer one at my local Target this past weekend and bought one of them). The older mega set released in 2008, boasted 60 discs, had all 9 seasons and the sequel... Read More

Hopefully A Better House on the Prairie
I have no idea what you are speaking of.. what does it mean "complete,remastered,unedited version"?

I have been renting them from netflix and nostalgia takes control when I watch. I just came here to buy the whole collection and I was reading the reviews...

Please explain.....
