Eleven years ago I wrote a glowing review of the first DVD release of "The Dick Van Dyke Show." At that time it was a thrill to have the episodes restored, complete and remastered (and with great extras).
Well -- technology has been busy the past decade and here we are again. The same episodes, many of the same extras, but WOW.
This Blu-ray release is the closest we'll get to actually being in the studio audience during the filming of the show. The picture quality really is that good, as other reviewers have said. And because I'm fanatical about aspect ratios, it's great to have the episodes in their original 4x3 size.
"But I already spent money on the DVDs," you say. I did too, and wasn't going to take the plunge and buy this Blu-ray. But Amazon has lowered the price on this so much that it's really a no-brainer.
Still on the fence? Think: Beautiful-looking high-definition on all 158 episodes, all the extras from the DVD sets plus some new ones, sleek packaging that takes up less room on your shelf, plus you're sending a message to the studios that Yes, we want classic TV shows released in HD.
OK, time to watch another episode and laugh...
This was my favorite rerun growing up in the 1970's. The show has wonderful slapstick comedy but is written with an intelligence and wit that all other shows must live up to.
This boxes set is simply amazing! Every single episode is here, plus tons of extras. The extras include the complete lost pilot "Head of the Family" in which Carl Reiner plays the lead. There are also clips from various Emmy award ceremonies of the era, product ads, interviews with the cast, audio commentary by the cast and a complete vintage gameshow episode where the cast of DVD show play charades. Brilliant.
The picture quality is first rate. The transfer is exceptionally clean. I can watch it on my 55" HDTV and the detail is amazing. You can see the subtle details Dick's sport coats and on the set. Each episode is chapterized for easy navigation. And every episode is presented in its full original version, not the trimmed down syndicated versions I grew up with. I finally get to see complete scenes that were cut out to make room for more commercials when the shows went into reruns.
You kids will love to watch it. My 1-year old daughter goes nuts when she hears the opening theme music. She loves to watch the show with me...even at 1yo!!! I can't recommend this set enough.
