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.
This is not a complete series, and I would not recommend for others to buy it. I wish I would have read more closely, so I leave this review for others in hopes they see that this series is incomplete and can avoid my mistake.
That said, the show itself was excellent. I would just probably find a different offering if you are after the 'complete' series. This is not it.
as for the show itself, it was one of my personal favorites, quirky and sometimes outlandish story lines, perfect cast of characters, sadly the fifth and final season suffers due to the loss of the real deal Bill McNeal played by Phil Hartman, I for one couldn't accept Jon Lovitz as his replacement, beside Lovitz had already appeared as two other characters on previous NewsRadio episodes, the original cast had great chemistry, Lovitz character seemed out of place and a poor fit.
