Additionally, there are no special features. Apparently the old DVD set had all sorts of things - bloopers, behind the scenes, you name it - but this one is devoid of all that. In fact, the DVD menus are nearly devoid of text, as well. The icons are easily identifiable, so it isn't that much of a problem.
A nitpick I have is that they put the episode guide for the DVDs on the underside of the cover slip, meaning you have to take out the last DVD in each case to see what the episodes on the last two discs are. Annoying, yes, but if you don't care about the spines of your cases not showing which season you're looking at, you can simply flip the cover slip around.
For anyone wondering, the episodes play in a 4:3 aspect ratio, not widescreen as it's 2016 release would imply. The quality is identical to that of what was on Netflix.
All in all, it's a great box set. With the minor nitpicks, I want to give it a 4.5 star rating... But since I can't, a 4 will have to suffice.
Note to potential buyers: 3 of the cases in my set have minor damage, but as it was all shrink wrapped that way and no plastic pieces were found, it's likely that it happened at the factory. It doesn't hurt the discs or how the box set looks, and the cases still work perfectly. While it isn't an issue for me, I thought it was worth a mention all the same.
Pro: I do like that they put the whole seasons into standard sized dvd cases as it is a great space saver when you have a bunch of seasons of different shows. The whole series cost less that what one season of the AB sets when they were released (but it's an old show now so that's probably why.
Cons: This set is only Stereo audio where as Anchor Bay was 5.1
No extra at all where as the AB had directors cuts, commentaries, interviews and other stuff (unless you count trailers for other shows - which I don't).
For some reason Season one came in a solid black DVD case while the others were clear so you can view the episodes on each disc while the case was open - Season one does have this list but well can't see it since the case is solid black (Did Universal/great-tv-shows.com run out of clear cases or what?)
Undecided: I haven't watch every episode yet because it's 98+ hours but so far all the discs look fine - I will update if there are an issues watch any of the discs. I have read some of the later episodes are in wide screen but I don't ever remember that and all the old AB episodes are 4:3. Also "The Way" may be the edited version (I wouldn't know if it is or not now since I haven't seen the original that originally aired on TV. - and I haven't gotten to watching that season yet.)
Basically if you have the old AB series and aren't missing any discs there really isn't a reason to get this. If you want them more compact you can buy multi-dvd cases much cheaper and make your own cover art and insert with episode list.
If you don't own the series (or are missing discs) it's a good buy since the old AB's are a heck of a lot more expensive since they have been out of print for so long
