For a number of years I have seen the individual season sets available and while I've been tempted on several occasions to pick them up, something had always stopped me. Maybe I didn't consider myself a big enough Little House fan, or maybe I was a bit put off by some of the negative reviews I had read here about them, or maybe it was a little of both. But when I saw the complete series out together in one place, I couldn't resist temptation any longer.
I'll begin by saying that those people who have complaints because of audio/video quality and editing have legitimate gripes. If I were a Little House purist seeking complete, uncut, pristine episodes, I'd be more than a little disappointed, too. However, I'm not necessarily one of those people. Yes, some of the episodes obviously have been edited a bit, and some of the episodes show their age, but not all of the episodes show these traits! A great many of the programs appear to be in absolute pristine condition for this release. As far as I am concerned, even the worst episodes from an a/v standpoint were not enough to hinder my enjoyment of the stories, nor were any of the edits that were made. For the casual LHOTP fan who enjoyed the series growing up as I did, and wants to relive the stories, characters and places again, there is nothing here that is going to put you off.
Additionally, once you get into Season 5, the bonus interviews and special features included in the box set are quite interesting. Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson) in particular provided some great insights into the show, and her audio commentaries on a number of the shows are often quite funny.Read more ›
So let's get to the point of why this BOX set is so bad and a one star. Well it's simple, it's chopped up and cut to bits. At least give fans the UNCUT version of the show. It's not like there are commercials to worry about and if you expect us to pay a couple hundred dollars to own the whole show, then put a bit of effort into it and at least give the true fans what we want. UNCUT!!!!
I'm not here to complain about the price. I'll GLADLY shell out plenty of cash for any show that I love, IF the company puts a bit of effort into taking the time to give me the real deal and not this edited down junk. I'll put my cash towards another TV box set that is UNCUT and wait for the real deal here. I refuse to pay for this set though, just so down the road the company can put out a UNCUT version and expect fans to pay again for this.
STOP BEING SO LAZY!!! Give the fans what we want and we will gladly buy the set. Think about it. A fan of any show that is going to go out and buy the complete TV series of a show, is a REAL fan. Do companies actually think that we want some cut down, chopped up nonsense as this?
WE WANT LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE IN A BEAUTIFUL BOX SET, UNCUT!!!!
Thank you for reading, just needed to vent. I'm angry because I love the show and REALLY DID want this.
Feb. '09 Update: After watching nearly all of the shows, I would change my star rating to 3 from a 2. The low sound is not as bad on some of the discs as others. But all comments above to the fact that this was never a problem in the earlier releases still apply.
