    Boy Meets World: Seasons 1 & 2 were released with a good array of commentaries, not a bad selection of extra's. Season 3 released with a cheap quiz - then Season 4 was pulled, I am guessing bad sales after a terrible release.

    Home Improvement: Season 1 had three commentaries and a clip reel, not bad, Season 2 & 3 had 'recut' clips - pfft. Season 4 has some bloopers, I imagine bloopers that are played through the end credits of the show.

    The Golden Girls: Season 1-4 had terrible extra's. A fashion extra or a quiz - take your pick. Season 5 is a turn around - 6 commentaries with Bea Arthur, Betty White & Rue McClanahan - great except it seems to have caused a ripple effect with Scrubs.

    Scrubs: BVHE tried very hard, 6 commentaries and featurettes on Season 1 & 2. Season 3 was released in Europe with 6 short featurettes, in the US 2 commentaries and a few more featurettes - why do they ruin everything? Its selling well! Well, crappy extra's are not gonna make it sell better.

    personally, I was ticked off with GG at first but considering the episodes have always been uncut with all music and everything, I don't really mind lackluster special features

    Buts its really disappointing when you think a show like this, a classic, can't be remember with how the cast/crew thought about it. There are so many times I think wouldn't it have been great to see what the cast thought about this and - thats it.

    that is true, funny how commentaries start in season 5, which IMO, is when the show began to go downhill a bit (it was still good, mind you, but it wasn't quite what it was the first four seasons IMO)

    I want them to release the sit-com "Style and Substance" (1998).
