LOOKING FORWARD TO THE REST OF THE SERIES!!!,
This review is from: The Addams Family - Volume One (DVD)
Like most people, I don't like flippers, and would have prefered the two seasons released as complete seasons. But these are minor quibbles, since I have waited 10 years since DVDs came on the market to get the 1st 22 episodes of this phenomenal show!
The sound and picture quality are superb, and it's amazing how much "new" material there is in each episode. By that I mean 5 to 8 minutes per episode hacked out to make way for excess commercials on Aussie TV. I have seen every episode a dozen times on TV so was amazed that there is so much material in each episode I had never seen:
The first episode starts with Mr Hillard, the truant officer, walking into the yard, then, on TV, he turns round and looks startled at the sight of Wednesday Addams. On the DVD, to my utter surprise, he walks in the gate, walks up a long winding drive to the Addams house, then starts at the sight of Wednesday.
I have watched the Addams Family since it came out when I was a child and never knew there was a long, winding path from the street to their house. This is just one of many amazing finds on this great set.
Don't be put off by the flippers, or by the partial series 1. Buy this great set immediately!!! You won't regret it!!!!!!!!!!
