Mill Creek makes horrible DVDs with compression errors, jittery picture, and authoring errors. HOWEVER they seem to make good to great Blu-ray Discs. I have watched the Mill Creek Blu-rays of That 70's Show season 1 & season 2 and they look great! Sharp, clear and full of bonus material.
Definitely get the Complete series Blu-rays, they are all off of the original camera widescreen negatives (yes the show was shot widescreen)! They even put the old FOX Home Video DVDs to shame.
The funny thing is, this series doesn't ignor any of that and still manages to make the 70's look fun, even for those of us old enough to know better. It manages to look the 70's directly in the face - complete with time-authentic clothing - and yet fill the show with the hopefulness of youth and the things that make the high school and college years both the best of times and the worst of times. Then there are the parents. The two young lovers in the show - Eric Forman and Donna Pinciotti - truly have dreadful parents with the best of intentions. Eric's parents, Red and Kitty, are not exactly June and Ward although they are conventional for the decade. They represent what happened when the 60's finally reached the suburbs during the 1970's. Donna's parents are two people who have been waiting for the 1960's to show up their whole lives in order to give their weirdness legitimacy. Eric's friends Fez, Kelso, and Jackie round out the group representing nerdiness, well-meaning incompetence, and snobbiness respectively. Hyde is an unusual teenager for a show about the suburbs, but he largely represents someone who has to play the cards he was dealt even when those cards are dealt by largely absentee and negligent parents. I highly recommend all eight seasons even though season eight does lag a bit due to the absence of Eric.
This review is for the 24-DVD Complete 8 Seasons set (not the Blu-ray). When I bought it is cost $32 (it has 3 DVDs per season). I've read previous reviews that said the DVD's were scratched by the packaging. The DVDs I got were not scratched, but they behave as if they were. I purchased this set because the previous seasons 1-7 which I own were getting worn. I needed to replace a disk in season 3 that had been stolen, so I had planned to buy season 3 and season 8 (which I had not yet seen). I saw that this set all 8 seasons would costs about the same as just the other two alone, so I bought it!
I was sorely disappointed. Firstly, some other reviewer said that due to scratches a lot of season 3 did not play. My disks do not have scratches, and a lot of season 3 does not play. Also the only other season I've watched on this set was season 8. On season 8 there were places on most episodes were presumably digital error caused small freezes or missed small bits as unplayable bits were jumped over, but the episodes were at least viewable. I played these on a portable Philips DVD player. It plays most everything I put in it. However, on rare occasion I will get a DVD from the rental store that is damaged enough that it will not play on my player. Sometimes a damaged disk that won't play on the player will play on my computer. The computer is more friendly about skipping over damaged parts. I tried season 3 on the computer, and the episodes were almost entirely unplayable there too. Of this set I have only watched seasons 3 and 8 (or to be accurate "I tried to watch" ). If you have a really expensive (i.e. more forgiving) DVD player you may get better results on it, I don't know. That's my theory on why there are not more bad reviews for this product.
It seemed to me as if, in order to save money and get each season on three disks instead of four, perhaps they used less memory than the regular disks use? I reason this, because the other versions I own (with the four disks per season), have a fuller sound than these do. I can only reason that perhaps the good reviews come from people who might have more expensive DVD playing systems that are perhaps built to correct for scratches and poorer disk quality? Some (not all) of the spots on season 8 that got jumped over on my Philips DVD player did play on my computer, NOT SO for season 3. To me this set was a total waste of money.
Now for my season 8 review, what I saw of it. I'd never seen season 8, and had read so many reviews saying it is a waste and not true to the show. However, It rocked!!. It was great. It was one of the better seasons in my opinion. My other favorite being season 3 (which is why it needed replacing season 3 disk 3 was in a DVD player when it was stolen). Season 3 disk 3 (of the four disk set) contains the Caroline episodes. Which, speaking of Caroline, was the one thing I didn't like about season 8, is that they made Caroline too over the top which detracted from the real psycho we know and love. Sad. The new guy however, was very plausible, and fit the show, he was a little more along the sidelines, and that worked. A lot of changes happened, and that may be what bothers those who don't like it. However, there are a lot of changes in most of the seasons, and my feeling was these changes told the story of the growing up of the group, while being very true to the spirit of the show. I put in in my top three favorite seasons.
Good luck, I hope this review helps you.
