Let me be very clear here - yes, the package that holds the set is sub-par...BUT, for the price you're paying for this complete set (my pre-Christmas 2012 price was under $32), people really should stop with their antics.

This set: You get all 26 DVD discs that would come if one purchased all of the individual season sets. The shows on these DVD's are anamorphic widescreen - they will show as widescreen on DVD players that are capable of handling this format (which should include even the cheapest models) on any widescreen TV. I do own an older DVD player which does not handle the anamorphic format, and on that the show displays in letterbox format. They have english closed-captioning which is switchable through your DVD player's settings (not on the discs themselves.) The discs have all of the content that you would expect on the individual season sets - featurettes, gag reels, etc.

There's nothing fancy here. The only insert is a single page overlay that numbers the individual episode names for each season. The box butterflies to expose the two spindles of DVD's. The twin spindles hold the DVD's securely, with cardboard packaging inserts to hold each stack down. That's it!

In my opinion, any price under $75 would make this a worthwhile purchase. As others have complained about, you might hope for better packaging - but I look at it as I'm getting everything that matters for a small percentage of the price of purchasing the individual season sets. For all that money that I've just saved, I'll purchase aftermarket cases for my DVD's and still get to enjoy everything I loved about this great series...

I don't know how anybody feels about Dennis Leary, I like him. The series was about a firefighter who suffered from PTSD after 9/11. I had a buddy, Tommy Butler, Firefighter, Squad Company 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn. He and his entire group that day were killed. They never found his body. His family buried an empty casket. I was drawn to the series because of that. I found that Mr. Leary did a damned fine job. I thank him.

I love this show and bought each season individually. I thought I would like to have the show in one boxed set instead so I purchased this item. What a mistake I made. There is a reason this packaging is half the size of the individually boxed seasons. Upon opening the set I had a hard time getting the center to slide out of the shell. Turns out the inside is very flimsy and cheap! It opens out to the two cheapest plastic [don't even know if I should use that word to describe the material] containers. Each container holds half of the discs on a flimsy spindle. There is nothing to protect the discs from one another, they are just stacked on top of each other. The worst part of this packaging is how they chose to keep the discs in place. They chose to insert round brown cardboard pieces stuffed into the containers. They might as well have used duct tape instead. This is by far the worst packaging I have ever seen in my life. I can't believe they chose such inferior products to house such an awesome show!!! Even bad TV deserves better packaging then this atrocity! I don't usually write reviews, but I'm just so stunned that this was done! Hey Sony I have a better idea so you can save more money, why don't you just sell the set in the spindle containers that they use to sell blank disc media! All you would need to do, would be to put a sticker label on the outside!!

Great series. Shows life after 9/11 from the common fire fighter viewpoint. Very earthy and shows the spirit and pride of the firefighter in NYC. Characters are a good fit. See a real family and how they get along.

Totally hooked on this series! We often watched three episodes in a row. I had, until seeing this, thought that Denis Leary was strictly a comedy actor, but he proves to be an immensely capable drama actor as well. He is completely believable as the valiant but troubled Tommy Gavin, and even when he behaves badly, you root for him anyway. ALL of the acting is superb here. The supporting characters are all terrific, there are engaging subplots involving most of them, and I particularly like his lieutenant "Loo" Ken Shea and Chief Jerry Reilly. Charles Durning is perfectly cast as Tommy's father, and crazy Uncle Teddy provides comic relief.. There is a supernatural element to this story, and you wouldn't think it would work in a straightforward drama, but it's actually done quite well, and it's believable in this context. The only things I'd change, and they are very minor points: they are rather heavy-handed with the Alcoholics Anonymous stuff. We know Tommy is an alcoholic, but it takes up quite a lot of screen time and is a bit repetitive; much of it could have been surmised. Also much is made of the fact that the Gavin family is of Irish descent. Kiss my Irish ass, it's my Irish temper, my Irish disposition, we Irish do it this way, etc etc. A bit too much of that.

Highly recommend this series, and you don't have to be at all interested in firefighting to appreciate it.
