LOL. Although I never was a fan of this show, I sort of feel bad for those of you who are, and have bought the first 2 seasons. If a show I was collecting, let's say "The Jeffersons" were to release a best-of after the first 2 season releases, I wouldn't be too impressed. I only hope that they use this release to test the waters with hopes that the remaining seasons will follow.

Gotta say. I will buy this in the hopes they release the rest of the seasons, but the episode selection here really stinks. Forget about the fact that 5 are from Seasons 1 and 2. They skip most of 3 and 4 and choose the rest from the seasons where the show wasn't that funny. Moreover,the three entitled "The Finale" are some of the most depressing sit-com moments ever put on film. For "one of the funniest sitcoms ever" they could have actually picked the funny episodes. It is the equivalent of issuing the "funniest moments from 'Family Ties'" and then only putting on "A My Name is Alex", the birth of Andrew, and the Trip to England.

There are some depressing moments, but they are mixed with some really funny stuff. I count those three (I think they actually aired as two, one being one hour) as the best of that show.

Heh, and I personally think these were some of the best episodes they ever did. I'm almost tempted to buy this for those 3 episodes alone, but I'm not sure that'll overcome my reluctance to purchase a collection set. Although that $40 list is pretty high for something that has so many duplicate episodes to the first two seasons.

I am still going to wax hopeful that seasons 3-whatever are released eventually!
