There are two minor issues witht this box set. First, there are no chapters. If you hit chapter advance it goes to the next episode. On a half hour show, it is not really deadly. The second issue is that when you hit chapter advance, the first time it goes to the beginning of the episode. It really doesn't go back but each episode is on the disc twice. Don't know why but they are? Both of these are minor and I can live with
The worst issue I have is that not all the episodes are original broadcast length (24.5 minutes). I have watched the first two seasons and the following are the episodes that have been edited:
Season 1 Episode 4 The Family Business
Season 1 Episode 5 Dear Diary
Season 2 Episode 14 If She Goes, I Go
Season 2 Episode 19 Dead Cat
Season 2 Episode 20 The Bad Seed
Season 2 Episode 21 Goodbye, Plumber (The best episode of the season!)
Season 3 Episode 22 Late Bloomer
Season 4 All Episodes except Allie's Graduation
Season 5 Episode 5 on
Now I do not blame VEI they can only publish what they are given. And for the original company, you can't blame them as video was in its infancy and they did not think to save the originals.
This is just a warning for the purists, for me something is better than nothing.
- On episode 1, season 2, the tape head that "played" the original video... the tape heads were not aligned, causing a muffled... or as what we called, in the video business... "Muddy" audio. As professionals, I am shocked they did not attempt to correct this. Even better EQing or filtering might have made a difference, if the original was not saved. It maybe can remind me of those "full series" versions of DVD's, you find on pirate websites, when the DVD was never really released, officially.
The title opening is cut off, on some episodes. The first note is usually cut off.
With those things being said... the video quality is great.
Otherwise, love the show!
