Customer Reviews

Why should we pay good money for cut shows?
S. Phillips
I would have given this DVD set 5 stars if Rhino had simply released it properly (complete episodes as originally aired instead of the syndicated versions).
J. McDonald
If the episodes are incomplete edited episodes, then this DVD set does not contain the complete first season.

Here we go again, another TV series with EDITED versions on DVD. Why should we pay good money for cut shows? The uncut versions are readily available, but someone probably didn't want to spend a few extra dollars to remaster them, so instead they dump the syndication prints on the market and hope the consumer is too dumb to notice.

If you buy this set, saying it isn't a big deal...let me ask you a question. Would you be upset if you bought a book from Amazon and then found out that 10 to 15 % of the pages had been removed? OF COURSE YOU WOULD! This is no different.

Boycott this and the many other edited TV shows on DVD (the list is growing, sadly) and send polite letters to Rhino Home Video telling them why they aren't getting your money.

AVOID THIS SET!

THIS BOX SET OF "TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT" DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FULL, ORIGINAL BROADCAST VERSIONS OF THE PROGRAM. IT HAS THE SYNDICATED/EDITED VERSION OF THE SHOW. YOU MIGHT AS WELL WAIT UNTIL THE SHOW AIRS ON CABLE. YOU WILL SEE THE SAME VERSION ON THESE DVD DISCS.

As others have stated, Rhino does not deliver on what was advertised for the release of Too Close For Comfort Season one. Unedited episodes with cast commentary and photo gallery extras were promised, however there are NO extras, and as mentioned before, the episodes are edited, syndication episodes. I have emailed Rhino (drrhino@rhino.com) stating my displeasure. I encourage any other fans, and owners who were ripped off, to write to Rhino stating your displeasure and that you will not support any other products by Rhino unless they resolve the manner by recalling the current batch of Too Close For Comfort DVDs and replacing them with the promised format, UNEDITED episodes with cast commentaries and photo gallery. While they are at it, they may as well add a "jukebox" feature where they include the ability to listen to the opening, closing (unedited) themes, and any alternates. Furthermore, suggest that if the have the rights to release any further seasons, that they deliver what they promise. If not, they may as well let another company release any other Too Close For Comfort products, and get it right.

I posted a review earlier and amazon pulled it after a few days ...why are they doing that all of a sudden??! Anyway, what others report here is true. ALL the episodes are missing about 3 minutes worth of scenes and dialogue! Rhino is allegedly working to correct this so they can re-release the set, but for those of us who were already ripped off, this news is too little too late. I won't be buying any more Rhino DVD's until I know for certain that they are what Rhino claims they are. ...Complete season? HA!

I will purchase this series when they release all of the episodes UNEDITED. I will also then change my star rating from 1 to 5.

the point in releasing TV shows if they are hacked to pieces?

Why even bother?

The word 'complete' is defined in Websters as 'having all its parts, not lacking anything'. But since all these episodes are shorter than when ABC first showed them, this set is not at all complete.

On top of that, the sound and picture on this heap of garbage are so bad that it is unwatchable. When I took my copy back to Best Buy they let me exchange it for something totally different because other customers returned their copies complaining about the same thing.

At least the stores are making good on this mistake.

Hey, Rhino! What are YOU going to do about it?!

It will interest all concerned to know that at a specific website is an alterations list. I read about the fact that the First Season of Too Close for Comfort consisted of syndicated episodes, for which reason, I will neither purchase nor rent it. The studios who release DVDs of television program have COLOSSAL NERVE calling a set 'complete' when it is not really that complete AT ALL. The list of alterations is growing and leads me to question if releasing television programs on DVD is such a good idea anymore.

THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE.
