Excerpt: This set was a blind buy for me when it came out and I am totally happy with it. So if you can get it for under $100 you should feel good about the purchase. After the show went off the air and HD came on the scene I really wished that it was on TV now instead of then. Fast forward to this set and I love seeing the episodes in HD and the way they originally aired. They set looks great sitting on a shelf and is very professional looking.
Excerpt: I don't think I have ever seen the broadcast versions, but I absolutely love this set. It's beautifully made, and this TV series is my favourite of all times. The PQ is quite alright. The audio sadly isn't lossless, but it's serviceable. The extras are lovely, though far from extensive. If you like the series than don't hesitate and get it now.
Excerpt: I have the entire 10 seasons on DVD. I have watched them 'n' times. I would have readily purchased the BD version. Lukily (or unlikily?), I found out that the blu-ray version is the original broadcast version. I know how much better the extended versions on DVD are whenever I get to see a re-run of any episode - many jokes, punch-lines, funny incidents are missing. It was necessary for the broadcast version to cut the episodes to meet the 22-minute deadline.
Excerpt: This box set is really disappointing, because as good as the video looks, and as great as the audio quality is, there is a ton of footage missing, like 5 minutes per episode is completely gone, vs. the DVD. This set should fail and bomb, and WB should be forced to come up with a solution to the problem of these sub-par transfers.
