Great collection Review by Caleb

Quality show on a long lasting media. Picture quality is as good as 1980 could produce and the sound is good. Perfect audio/video sync. These are not remastered or anything so do not expect HD quality in the early seasons. But I think that adds to the experience of the episodes and the times. Great show and I'm hoping to own them all.

Finally!!! Review by Woodpecker

Yay!!! I can hardly wait! I've wanted these forever! The only thing lacking is a subscription,.. say, one every two months?
