    I need to catch up if I want to make it to this one because I just have the season 1 and I have a long way to go...

    Glad to hear this is coming out at all, I was kind of worried given the termoil surrounding season 3. But, as with season 3 I'll of course buy this and all future seasons.

    Ditto to that! I was also concerned about whether we'd see a fourth season or not. This is indeed excellent news! Can't wait to get this.....and hopefully the rest of the series as well.

    I had no doubt it would be released, just a matter of when. When you consider that there's been only 3 releases in 3 years, I was starting to worry that it could take 11 years to finish this one. I hope they eventually release all the Specials in addition to the regular seasons.

    Anyone know if the theme song will be back for this set? I'll still buy it anyway, but it would be great if it was complete.

    I've gotten used to the new theme song...or better put, skipping past it. But I agree, the theme song is the main thing to fix.

    Garuanteed purchase for me though as i have the first three and love them.

    The changed theme song doesn't bother me in the least anymore. That's where that little fast-forward button comes in handy. lol That's normal practice for me though anyway with ANY TV-DVD set. After seeing the intro the first couple of times, I skip past it. Hopefully Sony will continue to pick up the pace with future seasons. It would be great to see season 5 available by Christmas......but perhaps that's just wishful thinking on my part.

    Since it mentions that "It's a Bundyful Life" is 2 parts on the DVD, I wonder if everything will be in tact in the episodes. The interesting thing about the 2 part version is that a few scenes were removed/cut short from the original 1 hour version, but a couple of scenes were also added, which weren't seen in the 1 hour version.

    The original 1 hour version was released on VHS in the mid 90s, so that is a plus side. I do have the 2 part version though, and part 2 is probably the longest Married...With Children episode ever; lasting a whomping 25:30 (without commercials, and with the original Columbia logo at the end). Part 1 lasts 22:57.

    The cover art for Married...with Children: Season 4 is perhaps the funniest I have ever seen for a TV-DVD. [​IMG]

    I don't believe this... You would think that with an altered theme song, they would try their damnedest to make sure that the episodes themselves remain uncut. (lengthwise, at least) TV on DVD is going to Hell in a handbasket. (in regards to many of my favorite shows, anyway)

    That's it! I'm just not going to buy any more of these damn Sony DVDs. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am seriously considering organizing a boycott of this company.

    Why would they all of a sudden go to edited episodes after three sets of unedited episodes? Doesn't make sense...

    According to the review, the edits affect 7 episodes, so it's not like the whole set is comprised of syndicated episodes. I'm not defending Sony for this, but I'm probably going to just suck it up. It will be a tough decision come release day and I don't want to support this type of thing, but M.W.C. (especially in the early seasons) is essential to me.

    Since only seven are syndicated versions, could there actually be a reasonable explanation? Maybe the originals were missing or unusable for some reason. Unfortuately, Sony will never provide an explanation.

    Is it just me, or is it starting to seem like these T.V. releases are coming out bad like this more often than good?

    I used to believe, and hope and speculate that this wasn't the case. I used to think that a majority were good, but the bad ones got more attention. Now, I'm not so sure of that anymore.

    I do find it odd that they used 7 sindicated versions, including 1 half of a 2 part episode, but not the other.
