The episodes are best watched in the correct order, beginning with the pilot episode. The public domain DVDs are not in the correct order. I notice some offer part 1 about the family tree but do not offer part 2 where Jed cuts the family tree. Some offer one episode where Jed buys a freeway, but I think that is a multi parted story. There is a 2 DVD set that offers five episodes on each disc. The last episode on disc one is the pilot episode. Getting Settled, is the first cut on the second disc, but the rest of the cuts on disc two are random.
