Now the DVD incarnation is not great. Some of the shows seemed over edited, as these were the syndicated shows and NOT the original masters. It is missing Billy Joel's My Life for some lame theme which does not work against the opening credits. There are NO extras to speak of and the stuff thats here is not up to quality
Paramount/CBS video should have known better. They should have spend a few extra dollars and gone for the best (like Billy Joel's My Life), not like the Mama's Family (see the reviewe) [...] that Warner Brothers heaped upon us last year. Yes, It seems cut
It is worth it to see a young Tom Hanks, but PLEASE PARAMOUNT/CBS get us the real thing and not wash out, syndicated shows that seem cut to ribbons and my opinion destroyed, that why only 3 stars

I loved this show as I saw it, and if you refuse to reproduce those versions, then I pass. I know for a fact that when EVERY EPISODE starts and it has the wrong music, that will serve as a distraction and it will do the exact opposite of what I wrote before. That Billy Joel song was perfect. Can you imagine Happy Days without "Happy Days" or "Friends" without "I'll be there for you" or any other show you connect it's theme song too not having it's original theme song? Not this guy.
"Friends" managed to release every episode on DVD uncut, some with extended scenes and NO music was replace in the whole series, that I noticed. Even if you stripped us of any bonus features (which may have made up for this issue) but gave us the original episodes as they appeared, we'd all be happy. So if we can't treat Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari's classic comedy with the respect it deserves, then don't do it. I doubt they will every change this release, so if you want this DVD set just have it, go for it. I'll have to pass.

It isn't until the second season that Sonny learns the truth about Buffy and Hildy actually being Kip and Henry. As for the rumor about the theme song on the DVD not being sung by Billy Joel, or possibly not even being the original "My Life", I don't know, but I can believe it might be true. I bought a DVD set of "Bonanza" recently, and the original theme song and background music had been replaced by music that sounded like it had been cranked out by some teenager in his garage on a synthesizer. This all has to do with contracts that made provisions for copyrighted music in syndication, but not such avenues as DVD since the medium didn't even exist at the time.
