In this "format" I was able to watch 2 or 3 episodes in a row.
This was my father's favorite show and and I remembered how much he laughed...
Thanks for the memories !
Soap was and will always be a fantastic sitcom, a parody of the ever popular soap opera. The 4 season show is filled with zany plot lines and hilarious cliff hangers, with a good group of characters, and a cast composed of excellent actors. The show itself deserves 5 stars, but the DVD release, put out by the dreaded Sony Entertainment in 2008, falls far from wonderful.
*All episodes are included on 12 discs.
*The video quality (for the most part) is good (but not great.)
*The mono audio is generally clear.
*Some hour long episodes are included full and intact, running approx. 49 minutes.
*A rather good price.
*Two or three episodes are the syndicated versions, which run approx. 22 min instead of 24 to 25 minutes.
*Some hour long episodes have been cut into two-part episodes (which generally run only 23 minutes each, which leads me to believe they have been edited.)
*Some episodes (most in season one and many in season 4) do not included the 'last time on Soap' recap segments.
*The quality is not the best, especially in season 4. The image is generally a tad blurry, but this is do to the age of the program and the fact that it was videotaped (not filmed.)
*There are few bonus features. Season 2 includes a short featurette with the show's creators, and a another copy of the first episode (which is entirely unneeded). The only other 'features' are previews for other DVD sets.
*The packaging is atrocious. The 12 discs come stacked up on each other, without protection, in a sort of plastic spindle (the type of plastic spindle blank CDs come on.Read more ›
The dry humor and physical comedy leaves nothing to be desired, and I can't think of a better cast. If you pay close attention, you will see many actors who went on to become noteworthy stars in movies and television.
Overall, money well worth spent, and a gift that keeps on giving.
