No.  I'll go with Barney Miller > WKRP, but the other 2 don't even come close.

With original music?  I don't even remember the original music.. it was always missing from reruns.

I wonder if they release that copy of the awful video release they show nowadays where they took out all the music and replaced it with generic elevator music, that made the jokes make no sense? It was truly sad and ruined the show. The music is a character in of itself to ground it, and when they took it away, they took much of the greatness of the show away.

FTA: "To make this the most comprehensive DVD release possible, Shout Factory are doing our best to include every scene uncut and to license as much original music as possible."


So... it *really* won't be complete.  I blame the phone cops, those bastages.

I watched the first season of Barney Miller. It's a wonder they let it live. It's heavy on Broadway-actor angst and not much funny.

Barney Miller didn't hit its stride until Steve Landesberg joined the cast, then it was perfect for its time.

Weirdly, you might be right.

I can't believe that the show hadn't been out on DVD until now.  Some really great stuff.

"[D]oing our best to include every scene uncut and to license as much original music as possible"?

*sigh*

It could be worse, but I was hoping Shout Factory would be the best shot to release it as broadcast with no bullshiat. At least it's not "Here's season 1, we'll see what happens before planning to release each subsequent season."

One of my favorite moments in the show was the ep in which the team thought that sleazy guy had a video of Jennifer naked and was going to show it in a pron theater. Of course, they had to go and "investigate".

Anyway...when they were all in there the cops busted the place. As they stormed through the door Johnny immediately stood up and threw everything out of his pockets. It was subtle and not the main focus of the shot but very noticeable. I was a little too young to get it first time I saw that ep...but as time went on and I saw it again on some repeat channel I understood immediately why my dad found it funny all those years ago.

There was always a Ginger v. Mary Ann thing going on with them.  I always liked Mary Ann and Bailey better.  More down to earth, and all that.

Plus, The helmet hair thing never did it for me.

Someone upstairs here mentioned Newsradio.

Maura Tierney was the prettiest thing to ever hit a sitcom, IMO

They just announced that their release of The Wonder Years will have all but two of the original songs included.  So they are pretty good at getting rights.

That could be potentially hilarious. Every time Johnny Fever cues up a record, it's the same public-domain ragtime piano number from the 1890s.

I'll wait for reviews to tell me how how close the DVD release is to the original.

And then I'll buy it and be disappointed because the reality of watching old sitcoms does not live up to my memory of them.

Wonder Years is being released by Time-Life, not Shout. And by god, you're paying for that original music, since the set will be $250.

But, it's 96% complete, so you can't biatch too much.

WKRP is still a "wait and see" thing. If it's still too edited, there's no use buying it.
