My problem is with the simple lie on the package. This is NOT the complete series, it's the Complete Syndicated Series.
I bought this, hoping to get some good laughs from a great show, and all I received was a large amount of frustration when I discovered that the first episode was edited from it's original hour long standing, to 22 minutes...
Just be warned - This series is incomplete.
I'll be returning this shortly, and buying the seasons individually, in the hope that the "uncut" sticker I see on the package is true.
I should say something about the packaging and the extras and such. The packaging is awfully cheap -- it's one giant case with a sort of "frame" inside, which contains a bunch of paper sleeves, which hold the discs. Several of the discs arrived with very noticeable scratches on them; they all play fine (for now, at least), but it's easy to imagine that other customers might be less lucky in that regard.
As for extras, they're pretty inconsistent. The first two or three seasons are pretty decent, with bloopers and a couple featurettes, along with little "best of" compilations (which aren't really worthwhile, but they are there). One of those seasons, either the 2nd or the 3rd, also contains several commentary tracks by French Stewart and a couple of the writers. The latter three seasons are much lighter on the special features though, and basically only offer blooper reels (which are great, but still, more would be nice). More importantly, the entire set supposedly contains only syndication edits, rather than the full, original broadcast versions of each episode. I wouldn't know, as I didn't watch the series during its original run, but other reviewers guarantee that there are things missing. And the latter three seasons even go so far as to do away with the "tag" scenes that ran during the credits.
So, overall, for such a low price, this is still a very nice value, but there are also some major caveats to the set. You get what you pay for, as they say. So, perfectionists should perhaps wait and hold out hope for a more thorough release sometime in the future. I'd wager, though, that this is all we're going to get.
