If you're looking for forgotten treasures full of snappy writing and chemistry that can't be replicated, then I can't recommend this series enough. But chances are, you're here because you swear by this show already or know somebody that does. That said, the things I'd want to know before buying this set.
*No spindle packaging like the last Complete Series set. The packaging is actually quite simple. 1 case with 9 discs protected by 9 envelopes.
*The picture is what I'd call an "honest" transfer. It looks great but has the occasional grain to it. This is just the reality of watching things that were actually filmed on film. Nothing to be done about it but enjoy what you've got.
*No special features. This is actually a deal breaker for me as I already own the individual seasons (I was hoping to consolidate space) and know how much I enjoy those extras. If this isn't a problem for you, then by all means, buy away. Personally, I'll be holding onto my old copies and trading this new set in.
If you're new to the franchise, this will do just fine. But it's not an upgrade for old fans who already own the series. Hope this helps anybody on the fence.
Today's media companies know you are downloading their content. Some are doing it legally, while many are not. While some companies try to sue their customer base out of existence, others are apparently taking us at our word when we opine: "I wouldn't torrent these files if they made them available at a reasonable price."
These discs are definitely made by and for today's peer-to-peer crowd. I've spent a fair amount of time in foreign countries where the US copyright law is less respected, and these discs look like they came right from one of the counterfeit markets I remember. Not the high-quality, hard to tell copies from Asia; these are the made-at-home DVDs you find in the Middle East and South America.
The first two seasons are packaged on three discs with zero frills. There's no introduction screen, no play all feature, no episode description, not even a distinction between seasons 1 and 2. There's simply a 1-28 list of episode names with poor-quality still photos taken from random places in the episode. Inexplicably, S03E25 "The Injury" is added to the last disc of "Seasons 1 & 2."
Season 3 adds some "special" features such as the ability to play all episodes and commentaries, but not all of the episodes even have commentary tracks on them. About half of the episodes have just one audio track which means a commentary track wasn't added. Maybe they tried to save money by paying the actors to comment on every other episode--who knows?
Despite all this, don't get the idea that I look down on the packaging or the DVD features. There was a time I paid a large sum of money for the fluff (West Wing, Sopranos, I'm looking at you!), but now I "Fair Use" all of my purchased media directly to a NAS while the originals are packed away and safe from my children's hands. These discs are perfectly priced to transfer the media from Amazon to my house to my media server with as little fuss as possible.
If you're looking for more than this, maybe you can convince the living members of the cast to get back together and film some specials. Clearly there's a market for that. They can throw in some color photos so that you have a booklet advertising the set you already bought.
If you're fine with low-cost, no-frills, pop-in-the-dvd-and-watch, this is absolutely the best way to get NewsRadio back on your TV set. Enjoy!
