Overall this is an excellent collection of Johnny Carson's golden years in television. I just wish it was better organized, had more clips of Johnny himself, and wish the video and audio had gone through some sort of restoration process. For the money this is definately a good buy, if you are a die hard Carson fan. =o)
Please issue DVDs of selected full shows. I remember that so many shows were great not because of any single performer but because of the entirety of the whole program, from monologue to conclusion.
I recently purchased the big box set and it's really nice to have these performances of this comedian or that country star. Or some of the memories and the heart breaking last two shows. I gave it 5 stars just for the emotional aspects, the nostaligic reasons, to be able to once again catch a few glimpses of the finest talk and entertainment show this nation's ever had. I owe Johnny that.
But really what's really missing are the banter between Johnny and his many personal close friends and fellow performers, the interviews, Johnny just being Johnny letting others have their time in the spot light but always adding his quips and charming laughter, his suave cosmopolitan presence anchoring the whole thing.
In all these DVDs there's really precious little of Johnny himself!
We fans, fans of all ages, would greatly appreciate having DVDs of many selected full shows. Especially at its peak during the late '60s through the '70s when so many of the classic stars, now long gone (Bob Hope, Dean Martin, etc) AND the up and coming newer stars who are still around today were all mingling together on the hour and a half shows.
Whole DVDs could be devoted to the appearances of specific guests like Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, and so many others.
Not only were there an awful lot of incredibly funny stuff back then.Read more ›

My father-in-law (like me) is a big Johnny Carson fan. No late-night host has ever come close to the class that Carson displayed on his show, and probably never will. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Brian L. Barnes
I have some of this material, mainly on the 3 VHS tapes released back in the early 1990's... lot of extra material on more DVD's but well worth the price! Read morePublished 5 months ago by Thomas J. Borko
