This Complete-Series mega DVD collection houses all five seasons of the very funny and perpetually-entertaining Van Dyke Show, encompassing 158 total episodes, all restored and remastered by Image Entertainment and Paul Brownstein Productions, with each episode exhibiting darn-near perfect video and audio quality. And every single episode is complete and unedited. Not a single second of any show has been cut out. Average running time per episode is a shade more than 25 minutes.
All 158 shows have been bundled together here to form one gigantic and money-saving 'Complete-Series' collection. Each of the twenty-five discs gets its own individual "ThinPak" (slimline) plastic case. Each case has unique and nicely-designed cover art (featuring a different publicity still photograph on every one of the 25 cases). Additional photos grace the back cover of each case, as well as more Van Dyke Show pictures (and a complete "Scene Selections" list for each of that platter's 6 or 7 episodes) on the inside of every case. (These plastic cases are the "clear" type, so you can read the "Scene" listing on the inside front covers right through the plastic.)
The back of each of these slim cases provides quick at-your-fingertips info about each show on that disc -- such as: Full episode titles; Film dates; Original CBS-TV air dates; Brief episode descriptions; Plus some crew credits ("Written by" and "Directed by" notations).Read more ›
Not to mention Carl Reiner, who not only was effective on-screen but very creative behind-the-scenes. He merely invented the show, for one. In fact, another ingredient that places the show on a pedestal is the quality of the writing. Amazingly, there is a consistency over the thirty-plus episodes (multiplied by five years) that makes me hard-pressed to think of even one subpar show in this series ("The Twizzle," maybe?). Sure, some shows stand out: the walnut episode, Alan Brady's wig disclosure by Laura, the "wrong baby" episode, and so on. Yet every show is a delight to watch again and again. The humor is genuinely witty and most of the topics are still relevant even today. In fact, I sometimes think that watching the way Rob and Laura realistically dealt with a wide range of human emotions (jealousy, etc.) and marital situations (misunderstandings, etc.) was probably an effective early form of marital counseling for many viewers.
Yes, the show is of its time: you'll find yourself dropped right in the center of the early-1960s, right on the brink of changing attitudes regarding gender, race, marriage, etc.Read more ›
This Complete-Series set, which was originally released on May 24, 2005, holds all five seasons of the perpetually-entertaining Van Dyke Show, with all episodes having been restored and remastered by Image Entertainment and Paul Brownstein Productions. Each episode exhibits excellent video and audio quality. And every single program is complete and unedited. The average running time is a shade more than 25 minutes per show.
Each of the twenty-five single-sided discs gets its own individual slim plastic case. Each case has unique cover art, featuring a different publicity still photo on the front.
The 25 discs in this Mega-Set are placed side-by-side inside a large outer "slipcase" box. Image Entertainment distributed five separate season-by-season "Dick Van Dyke Show" DVD boxed sets in 2003 and 2004, with each of those sets coming with a 5-Disc slipcase box. However, those separate seasonal slipcases are not included in this Mega-Set.
Gobs of supplemental bonus features are also included on these twenty-five DVDs, including: Audio Commentary Tracks on several episodes (sporting the voices of Dick Van Dyke, Carl Reiner, Rose Marie, and others), along with cast interviews, vintage 1960s TV commercials, documentaries, featurettes, Emmy Award video clips, photo galleries, behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, trivia games, CBS-TV promos, some hidden Easter Eggs to seek out, and lots of other little interesting extra tidbits besides!Read more ›

|Is this Blue Ray set also DVD compatible?||
To my knowledge Blu-ray is backwards compatible, that is to say it will play on a non-blu-ray player but they do sell a regular DVD set, albeit it is more expensive for some reason.

I think the DVD set has 25 discs. The Blu-ray has some extras that the DVD set doesn't have, though.

Yes. VERY OVERPRICED.
Blame Image Entertainment for this.
That said, some merchants are selling this NEW for $95, shipped, and this will get cheaper at Christmas. Be patient, Grasshopper!
