Are ALL of the songs restored to this set? No, the bickering over costs and out and out refusals by certain artists to allow snippets of their songs to be used as they had in the original boardcast of the series prevented some songs from appearing. But Shout! did an impressive job of licensing MOST of the music, or in the few cases where they had to replace songs, they replaced them with the utmost care and respect to the fans. Much has been made about the loss of Pink Floyd's "Dogs" from the soundtrack of one of the series' most popular episodes of all time..."Turkeys Away", however shout replaced this song with a similar sounding song, with dogs barking, and retaining the joke in the conversation in the booth between the characters of Arthur "Big Guy" Carlson and beloved series DJ Dr. Johnny Fever. The scene was enjoyable and worked, unlike the previous DVD release back in 2007.
In order to reduce the music licensing costs back in the late 70's, series creator Hugh Wilson decided to shoot the show on videotape rather than the industry standard at the time for sitcoms to be shot with film. As a result, we're forced to put up with the odd blip here and there from the limitations of the videotape. However, each episode looks very clear when played back on a 55" HDTV and Blu-Ray player with upconversion.Read more ›
If you ever wondered about AM R&R music stations in the 70s, this is for you!
AWESOME!!!! Worth every penny! Even funnier than I remember. The most laughs per episode of any sit-com. They just don't make shows this good anymore. Considering what they had to work with Shout factory did an excellent job of digitalizing the series, looks better than I hoped (as do Jennifer and Bailey!). I would have been more impressed if ALL the original music was back, however they did a good job of getting the rights for most of it. The reruns on TV with all the music replaced with crap or missing entirely was depressing and unwatchable. These discs have breathed new life into a classic. Thank you Shout Factory!!!
If you are a fan of WKRP or just looking for some decent humour (not based on insults or putting people down) then you should order this set. You won't be disappointed.
The extras are a little lame, but the episodes are worth every penny. A must-have for any WKRP fan and for anyone who is a fan of great television!
