This "complete series" set is nothing more than the five individual sets shrink-wrapped together. No outer slip cover, no new content, nothing. There is no reason to buy it unless you do not already own the individual sets.

The dvds look and sound great and this would be a great deal if Paramount fixed the problems in the individual sets. The first time around, Paramount screwed up the individual season sets. Paramount cut numerous scenes in several of the season 2-4 episodes. The cuts scenes are mainly ones where Nabors is performing musical numbers that Paramount didn't want to pay for the rights to use. For the most part, the cuts are not that obvious. If you haven't seen the show before, you probably would notice something is missing. Still, tampering with a classic show like this is just wrong. You would think that Paramount would have tried to redeem itself and fix the issues this time around.

I was tempted to give this release one star but that wouldn't be fair to this classic show. IMHO, Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton are one of the funniest comic duos of all-time and this set is worth buying (IF you don't already own the previous sets) even with the cut scenes.

Video: The show is presented in its original full frame 1:33 ratio and overall I think it looks fantastic. It is really much better than the drab washed out prints I watched on television for years. Season One is in black and white as originally aired and the other seasons are in color.

Audio: The only audio track on this set is a Dolby Digital English Mono Mix. It is clear sounding and I have no complaints

Subtitles: There are no subtitles on the set but it is close-captioned in English only.

Extras: The extras on this set are from Season One…
*Audio Introductions by Jim Nabors to all of the Season One Episodes.
* An Audio Commentary by Jim Nabors on Gomer Overcomes the Obstacle Course
* An Audio Commentary by Ronnie Schell on Gomer and the Dragon Lady
* The Pilot Episode: Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. from The Andy Griffith Show with an Optional Audio Commentary by Jim Nabors
* Jim Nabors On The David Frost Show
* A Clip From The Lucy Show - Lucy Gets Caught In The Draft
* A Clip From The Jim Nabors Hour featuring Frank Sutton and Ronnie Schell

I have enjoyed other series with these actors in them that I thought I'd add this one to my collection. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet but I am sure it will be great.

My husband and I used to watch this show as kids and we both agreed it was hilarious. We have been waiting for it to be released on DVD but we never saw it in any stores. I finally found it through Amazon and decided to give it to my husband for a birthday present. Because we saw this show as kids, at first, we both thought our perception of the comedy may have been different now that we were adults but to our delight the show lived up to every side-splitting aspect we remember. "Recommended to anyone who loves classic comedy."

Terrific DVD set. Excellent quality as each episode has been remastered. Each episode has a commentary introduction by Jim Nabors. I can't recommend this DVD set enough for quality and great comedy for the whole family. It brings back great memories for me watching this series again.
