The first season is spread out on the four DVDs. I don't know if they are edited or not. It has been a while since I have seen the series. Sadly, it doesn't run in syndication like it should regularly. Still twenty years later, the jokes are fresh and alive. Guest cast in the first season included Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls and Parenthood); John Mahoney (Frasier); and Phil Hartman (Newsradio and Saturday Night Live). The fourth DVD includes extras like interviews with the entire cast, highlights, TV spots and comes with a 16 page collectible booklet. I did notice that James Earl Jones' introduction to the series wasn't in any of the episodes like it was on NBC.
It's a shame that all we get on dvd, hulu, netflix are the syndicated versions. This DVD is the first time we get to see Season 2 uncut. I still think some of these episodes are cut however, seeing how the final episode was originally aired as one hour, but it's split into two episodes on the dvd. So, I think there is a bit of false advertising going on here.
My only other complaint would be the episodes are very grainy and I don't know if that's just because that's how they are or it's bad dvd compression.
As for product quality, the discs were in good shape and the packaging okay. I do wish there had been a handy listing of the episodes with a brief synopsis of each, either on the package or as an insert. But since I got "3rd Rock From the Sun--Season 1" very cheaply, I guess I couldn't expect this. (In the past I had bought Season 2 of "3rd Rock From the Sun" & it had included such an episode list on the package; however, I paid quite a bit more for this set).
