5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!, June 6, 2010
This review is from: The Larry Sanders Show: The Complete Series (DVD)
Finally! I have already pre-ordered The Complete Series. The Complete First Season and Not Just The Best Of The Larry Sanders Show are already in my collection, and I have enjoyed those sets over and over and over again. The First Season has an enteraining interview with Garry Shandling, and Not Just The Best includes amazing, personal, informative, funny and long visits between Shandling and his friends Carol Burnett, Tom Petty, Jerry Seinfeld, Alec Baldwin, John Stewart, Sharon Stone and others. The first two collections are thus definitely worth having. The forthcoming Complete Series will give us all a chance to enjoy the episodes we haven't seen in decades. I can't wait to see Hank confess to Larry's ex wife, after spending a night in a hotel room together, that he emptied the mini-bar and that he will reimburse her. Such situations, sublime and tears-down-your-face-funny, were the result of patient character development and a deep understanding of the human condition. Garry Shandling created the most intelligent comedy series ever. Every writer, every director and every actor responded to his concept and made The Larry Sanders Show a timeless masterpeice. Whatever the reasons were for delaying this release, I am grateful they no longer exist.

Bravo Bravo!!! This boxset is SO on my shelf the second it comes out. I have been waiting like Leif and the others. There would be NO justice w/o the entire Sanders series available. The show's uniqueness lies in the fact that it was so evenly done (no clinkers in the whole batch) that any one of the shows could be a favorite of someone. Truly a fine day in DVD land!!

Yes! I hope all the music rights issues were cleared up and we'll get things like Warren Zevon rolling his eyes as Larry asks him to play "Werewolves of London."

Please update when you receive the set. I am curious about the extras. Do they repeat the ones from Not Just the Best, or are there new ones, or additional ones? What the heck. . . I 'm going to buy it, of course, but just curious.

I'll let you know via this post what extras are included... The release date has been postponed until November...
