    Keen Eddie was such an awesome short lived show last summer and it really sucked they got rid of it. At least they could have shown all the episodes. So nothing made me more hapopy then hearing the DVDs are coming but I haven't heard about it since. I'm anxiously waiting to pick tis up. Any word Guys?

    Sorry, the only thing I heard about this show coming to DVD was when it was picked up for syndication...I think that was it. I haven't heard anything since then.

    Many years from now we'll be talking about great TV shows that weren't given a chance and Keen Eddie will be sure to come up. This was a great show and it's a crime it didn't make it past last summer.

    I can't wait for these DVD's.

    I hope they put the episodes in the right viewing order, not by airdate, since Fox and Bravo aired them out of sequence.

    And, of course, YAY! Looks like September 2004 is going to be as bad for my wallet as September 2003 was (and June 2004 will be).

    Well this is disappointing. Not only are the shows presented by their airdate, as opposed to production date, but some of the music has been replaced.

    According to TVShowsOnDVD.com's review (http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/siterevi...ReleaseID=3823), there's a note on the package stating that "music has been replaced for this Home Entertainment version." This is rather surprising, considering most modern television shows including music licensure for eventual DVD release in their contracts.

    And, to top it all off, absolutely no extras. A supreme disappointment for such a wonderful, and overlooked, show.

    Oh, for crying out loud! The more they get away with this, the more they'll keep doing it.

    NO ORIGINAL MUSIC=NO SALE!

    Uh, but I really, really liked this series . . . .

    I watched the DVD and I will have my DVD review up soon. I know they didn't replace all fo the original music because I remember hearing some of the music I remembered from the original broadcast versions (I taped some episodes from FOX , and I could always go back and check to see what music has been changed). The music replacement didn't bug me because I was entertained by these episodes (and the last 6 episodes I never seen before).

    I only saw one episode when it aired.

    I've had the discs in my possession for about a week, now, but haven't gotten to them yet (I got swamped with 3 deliveries from Paramount over four days - 8 reviews including two series). I hope to have a review posted in a couple of days.

    When it comes to the music, while I don't like it when it is replaced either, you have to weigh the options:

    1. release at a reasonable price with the music change
    2. release at an UNreasonable price with original music
    3. no release at all

    You can't please all of the people all of the time.

    -Scott

    I have no idea what music the show originally aired with, but I liked the stuff I heard. It was mostly instrumental, though I remember hearing one memorable song - at least memorable at the time (I've since forgotten what it was).

    Probably at a specific rate, though, which might be too high for something like Keen Eddie which is expected to be a niche product. Paramount may have negotiated a price which would be reasonable for a hit - Keen Eddie was produced in 2002, and back then, who figured a TV show that wasn't a hit would get a home video release? - but which wasn't practical at smaller numbers.

    Here is my review. I will try to go look at the episodes I have taped if I have time to compare the music between the broadcast versions and the DVD set.

    Freaks and Geeks was priced quite reasonably, despite earlier fears.

    I just finished the set, what a fun show. Now I'm really disappointed this show got cancelled so quickly, so much potential...

    I never watched the show when it aired (meant to, but missed it). I picked up the DVD set and watched the first episode last night.

    Have to honestly say that even with the changed music, it is a lot of fun. It doesn't hurt the show. May have hurt it if you remember what was there in the first place, but for new viewers, it works.

    Fun show, can't wait to watch the rest.
