I loved newsradio and was over joyed to see a complete set was being produced. Now however, I wish I had collected newsradio season by season as I did with M*A*S*H and other great shows. The all in one package basically took all the disks from the five season packages and put them in a stack, one on top of the other, without so much as a piece of film between them. I was forced to acquire a CD book to hold the disc to make them easier to access and prevent scratching. I would suggest you be prepared to do like wise.
There is also no guide book only an episode list on the box. Even for someone like myself who knows all of episodes by heart this is a problem. I know the episodes as the Lisa-Dave brake up episode, or the bill shocks himself episode not "Led Zeppelin II". Someone who has only seen each episode a few times will probable be completely lost.
Do yourself a favor, buy each seasons individually. The price is about the same (if you don't buy the fifth season and who needs it. I mean we all know the show was not the same after Phil Hartman died.) and you will get better cases, better guides and great show. Who could ask for more.

This is a review of the packaging, not the series. The entertainment industry weenies continue to see how little value they can give you for the highest possible price. Unfortunately, packaging is the one (the others are double sided disks that get scratched no matter how carful you are and compressing the show, to squeeze more on each disk, reducing the quality). This time they hit a new... all time low! When you open the box you will find a paper thin plastic "space filler" shrink wrapped (so thin, the wrap bends it all out of shape) with a piece of cardboard on a spindle. Pry the cardboard up and you will find all 12 disks stacked on top of each other. That's it. I really can't explain how cheap this was done. I've thrown away packing materials that were far superior. I'm sure they would respond that " they want to keep the price down so we can afford to buy it". Since I can buy a thin jewel case retail for about 10 cents, we are talking pennies at the manufacturing level...not wholesale - that cost could realistic be 1 cent. I'd pay 12 cents more to protect my $47 investment.

Bottom line, good series, but if you buy this be prepared to provide your own cases to protect the dvds.

I am a big fan of the show. I was pleased to get the boxed set. I was however disappponted to see how poorly packaged it was.
Unlike most boxed sets, with each disc packaged separately
, the set comes in a stacked container..definitely not the best for
repeated handling. Cost cutting at its best.

I'm not sure what I can say that others haven't already said, but I've added a picture of the stack of DVDs you will find when you open your series. This is flat-out unacceptable. There is no sense whatsoever in "keeping costs down" if it renders the DVDs unwatchable, which IS what will happen in short order unless you immediately transfer them into something more protective.

Newsradio is a fantastic, charming, endearing, unique, absurdly funny show. That's why I purchased it. This review is not for the show.

Normally, I'd give this 5 stars because, y'know, it's still News Radio.
If you're looking for forgotten treasures full of snappy writing and chemistry that can't be replicated, then I can't recommend this series enough. But chances are, you're here because you swear by this show already or know somebody that does. That said, the things I'd want to know before buying this set.

*No spindle packaging like the last Complete Series set. The packaging is actually quite simple. 1 case with 9 discs protected by 9 envelopes.

*The picture is what I'd call an "honest" transfer. It looks great but has the occasional grain to it. This is just the reality of watching things that were actually filmed on film. Nothing to be done about it but enjoy what you've got.

*No special features. This is actually a deal breaker for me as I already own the individual seasons (I was hoping to consolidate space) and know how much I enjoy those extras. If this isn't a problem for you, then by all means, buy away. Personally, I'll be holding onto my old copies and trading this new set in.

If you're new to the franchise, this will do just fine. But it's not an upgrade for old fans who already own the series. Hope this helps anybody on the fence.

I read how bad the packaging was on this product, and though it is not the usual packing and is not what I will use permanently, I don't use the other permanently either. The packing does its job until I can get it into something better. The show itself is hilarious. The only problem I see is that the picture itself is grainy. I am not sure if this is due to compression or if it was the quality of the original.

None the less, I enjoy watching the shows.

Watching these DVDs, I remember why I love this show so much: it's funny, and it's dense. Most sitcoms have an A story and a B story. NewsRadio has half the alphabet in each episode, there's always tons of different stuff going on, unlike in many other shows where the stories are drawn out, sometimes to good effect but usually not so much.

Also, all the characters have all kinds of weird running gag quirks, such as Dave's babyface and matching stature, Lisa's math capabilities and growing up without watching TV, Matthew's insane admiration of Bill and so on.

Yes, the packaging is fairly cheap but it gets the job done.

One thing: I'm not completely sure, but it looks like these might be syndication shows, clocking in at 21:50 per episode in the fourth season. In the 4th season episode where Bill interviews Jon Lovitz hanging from the side of the building I remember Joe falling/jumping out of the window (to Dave's dismay) to join them, but this didn't happen. However, this might have happened in a different episode although I can't remember another one with people hanging from the side of the building.
