These discs are made on demand and are as cheap as you can get. There is only 1 home page option and that is play epiosdes and that menu looks like a 3rd grader created it. There are no chapters, if you hit the chapter forward button it will skip to next episode. There are no episode titles or summaries anywhere in the package and the episodes are NOT EVEN IN ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Extremely dissapointed in the packaging of this short lived show I enjoyed.

It was good to see Matthew Perry back on weekly series television. Sadly the show did not even last a full season. Happily it did make it to DVD. This DVD release has every episode even those not aired. And I am truly happy to have this show on DVD. What troubles me is the way it was slapped together. I have purchased MOD in the past but have never seen one so poorly produced. There is just one main menu. There is no way to select a specific episode other than hitting play and skipping ahead to the correct episode. There is also no way to jump to the next scene. In the end the quality is something I could have achieved on my home DVR. Very disappointing. But, if you are a fan of the show or Mr. Perry you will be glad to have these episodes in your collection. I rate this series as 5 star but sadly this release is 2 stars at best.

They have a nerve charging $30 for this very poorly produced DVD - see review by D. Garza. What a pity that this goofy, delightful show is being replicated like a pirated dvd. It is a double pity that Mr. Sunshine was cancelled after 1 season. Each of the lead characters was both cast and written perfectly. This was one funny and unusual comedy that deserved a longer life and a professional DVD version.

My one star (would give less if I could) is not for the series, but for this release. As a Matthew Perry and Allison Janney fan, I enjoyed the series. It wasn't great, but it was entertaining and, I thought, improved as it went on. This release, however, is a joke and not worth the money. No episode titles, no chapters within the episodes, but worst of all - the episodes are grossly out of order. So disappointing. Why put out a release if it's garbage? Save your money - don't buy this.

This in combination with Studio 60 are the best of Matthews career. It is ashamed that the simple and dated friends is what he will be remembered by. I believe with Mr. Sunshine as it went on that we would see that he grew as both an actor and in terms of comedy. The fact that he created and wrote on the show is evidence he is talented beyond the memorization of lines. GREAT SHOW.

Matthew Perry has been on a run of bad luck since Friends ended. He's been in some good projects like Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip that haven't been given a chance to get their traction and flourish. Mr. Sunshine looked like another good opportunity for Mr. Perry to find some post Friends success. He played Ben Donovan, a self-absorbed manager of a San Diego sports arena. The role was tailor-made for Mr. Perry (it didn't hurt that his production company produced the show) and he played well off the kooky arena owner Crystal played by Allison Janney as well as Crystal's child-like adult son Roman played by the very funny Nate Torrence. Jorge Garcia from Lost guest starred in a few episodes as one of the many arena workers Ben has contempt for. The show only lasted nine episodes. While it did start a little slow it felt like it was starting gain some momentum when ABC pulled it off the air permanently.

Loved the cast, the show and the story. Matthew Perry is one of my favorite actors so he cannot make a bad show or movie.

I am very disappointed with this DVD set. While I enjoyed the series, and was looking forward to watching it again on DVD, this is a very poor quality DVD. Although it has the episodes that did not air, the series is not arranged in order on the DVD. To make it worse, there is no menu at all. You can't choose an episode. Just click play and start from the beginning. Every. Single, Time. It's almost like someone recorded it from their tv and put it randomly on a DVD. I would not recommend this purchase. Unless it's on clearance for $5.
