Updated 11/2/2012 - Finally received my set today. And honestly, still can't say figure out why these episodes. Yeah, some are pivotal episodes (critically acclaimed?), but others?
Anyhoo, what you get is a something of a box set. One big decorative box inside of which are 4 "volumes", each having 2 discs of 4 episodes.
Volume 1: Season 2, 8 episodes
Volume 2: Season 3, 8 episodes
Volume 3: Season 4, 4 episodes, Season 5, 4 episodes
Volume 4: Season 6, 4 episodes, Season 7, 4 episodes
This distribution of episode makes it seem even more unlikely that we'll get full season.
I grew up watching this show and have been waiting a long time for this to come out on DVD. I Had the biggest crush on Bubba (Alan Autry) and really was looking forward to buying "his" episodes. Some of them are here, but just a couple. Ok. Very disappointing.
But I'd love to know what went into choosing these particular episodes. Granted, it's been years and my memory of some of them is sketchy, but I don't see the connection between these particular episodes. Did they randomly choose them just to make up 24 hours (so they could sell it as such)? Even more disappointing.
Anyway, the price is low, so I'll probably buy anyway. But I would have liked something better - like complete seasons. What's worse is if they come out with complete seasons later, then I'll just have double copies. I could continue to wait and hope, but if it never happens and this was my only shot? Makes me feel plain ripped off and I haven't paid anything yet.
