A pity no one in television land knows how to write humor anymore.
Steven Scott Smith
Just having these shows on crystal clear DVD is great, and brings back many fond memories of a much beloved TV show.

I've purchased DVD's from the Rhino label in the past and have been very disappointed with their level of quality.

Okay, first, I have to admit that I haven't made it through all 37 shows in this set, so all I can say about the transfers is....so far, they are excellent. Other non-studio companies packaging television programs would learn a lot to follow the lead of Rhino. They include all intro and outro sequences, and are the full program, as originally broadcast.

The one thing that distracts from this being a 5 star set is the packaging. This is the worst packaging job I have seen yet of a season set. The single DVD plastic keep-case, with a hinged 2-DVD insert is just plain cheap. Not only that, it promotes the damage of the discs...including the fact that one of the dual-sided discs rests on the mount for the third disk (which is stored on the back flap of the case).

The insert is a simple cardboard one....no booklet detailing the different episodes, or giving any additional information. Just a list of the shows.

Also, a menu of the episode selections would have been greatly appreciated. The only choices on the main menu are "Play All" and "Scene Selections". In order to choose an episode, you must page through the "Scene Selections" and choose the beginning scene of the desired episode.

Another note....when an episode concludes, the viewer is not sent back to the menu, but instead, the next episode starts playing.

Rhino really gets an "A" for releasing this show, and for it's video transfers (not only the quality, but that they are in their entirety).

Unfortunately, they are prevented from getting 5 stars by their poor menu programming, and the packaging which doesn't protect the disks.

Still, if you are a fan of classic TV, this set is still well recommended.

Before Mork (Orkan) and ALF (Melmacian) came to Earth and moved in with their humans, Los Angeles Sun reporter Tim O'Hara (Bill Bixby) took in a Martian (Ray Walston) as his "Uncle Martin". The series ranks up there with Mr. Ed on the laugh-o-meter. Viewers who only know Bill Bixby from his more dramatic role as Dr. David Banner from TV's The Incredible Hulk will be floored by Bixby's incredible sense of comedic timing. The show also received solid support from Pamela Britton as Tim's befuddled landlady Mrs. Lorelei Brown and Alan Hewitt as suspicious Detective Bill Brennan. Unlike previous Rhino "Martian" DVDs, this Rhino Home Video release of My Favorite Martian - The Complete First Season, features all 37 original, uncut episodes on 3 discs. Rhino was even able to track down the uncut pilot for the set. Here's a list of the Season 1 episodes:

Format: DVD
Rhino did a great job with this black and white 1963 show. (The third season was in color). It's on two two-sided discs and one one- sided disc in a single width DVD package. Given deluxe packaging like Futurama and The Simpsons, it could have been five one-sided discs in a slipcase. But no one thinks retro TV will sell, so it's packaged less expensively to appeal to a lower market niche. That's why shows like Burns and Allen, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Petticoat Junction are hard to find except in budget, no-frills versions, often without the original themes (since the DVD manufacturer didn't license them).

Enter Rhino, one of the few companies with any sense of how to make good DVDs and with any interest in black and white TV. Rhino gets what TV execs don't: we really aren't watching their highly- rated new shows. We really don't care about the Nielsen ratings. Many of us don't have cable, and we really are buying these retro DVDs. And we do want deluxe packaging and well-done transfers. Thanks to Rhino for preserving TV history. They even have the pilot, which got this show off to a good start. However, it immediately sinks to same old sitcom fare, only slowly beginning to develop the show from the characters, and only later hit its stride. But this was arguably the first fantasy sitcom (Unless you count Topper), preceding Jeanie and Bewitched. Like so much of the memorable TV of the time, it was filmed at Desilu Studios, produced by Sheldon Leonard and bankrolled by Danny Thomas and Andy Griffith.

Sitcoms then were not the anything for a laugh shows they later became, and the shows writers ponder profound questions and dabble in drama. Tim and his alien uncle wrestle with the problems of the day, offer the occasional insight, and rebound with unsinkable optimism.
