One of the most endearing features of The Carol Burnett Show was the Q&A session with the audience that opened every show; it provided a charming forum for Burnetts warm rapport with her fans, as well as a showcase for her improvisational skills. This 2004 TV special (which, like Burnetts Showstoppers retrospective from 2001, posted huge ratings) puts the comedienne and her series co-stars--Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence, and Lyle Waggoner--in front of an audience once again to reminisce and introduce some vintage Q&A clips. Burnett remains fast with a quip, and game enough to once again venture a stellar Tarzan yell, and shes well-matched by her former castmates, who spin some terrific stories about smooching male and female audience members, wrangling with the legendary Mrs. Miller, and struggling to keep a straight face while one of them (usually Conway) stole the show. For fans of the series, this is an enjoyable highlight reel of its funniest unscripted moments. --Paul Gaita

I bought this set thinking we were going to sit back and watch some of Carol Burnett's classic shows, or at least a decent compilation of the show's best moments.
Instead, what we got were less than 2 hours of 2 'Remember the Good Old Days' shows where the stars reminisced about some of their favourite moments, sprinkled with clips of some of these moments.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that the clips weren't enjoyable, I had a good laugh here and there, but I feel like I just bought 15 minutes worth of show with the rest being fluff I wasn't interested in. It would have been nice if Amazon had more details about this product so that I could have made a more informed choice.
If you're a Carol Burnett fan and need every scrap of footage and want to hear the stars share their favourite moments, then you might like it. However, if you are looking for a decent sampling of Carol's classic shows you'll be sadly disappointed like I was.
Invited friends over and had a good laugh.
The only disappointment we found is that it would be nice to see a series of her TV comedy shows. Excerts are fine but would love to see some of her shows in its entirety.
Also would enjoy "Laugh In" series. At a reasonable priceing.
They are all "Timeless Comedies."

I grew up watching this show!
Watching it now is a blast from the past.
Good review of some of the best humor she produced in her time for tv comedy. Wish they would come out with the twenty five year reunion of the gang. Read morePublished on Feb. 13 2013 by Linda Proust
