Join everyone's favorite radio DJs—the rockin' Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman) and the soulful Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid)—as they weave through the inner-office antics of the crazy WKRP staff; including the station's program director Andy (Gary Sandy), indecisive manager Arthur (Gordon Jump), advertising executive Herb (Frank Bonner) and, of course, the station's lovely receptionist, Jennifer (Loni Anderson). So sit back and enjoy the sound of uproarious laughter as you watch all episodes of this iconic series.
Please note: Where possible, original music from the series is included in this release. Over 90% of the original music is contained in the set. Missing music is due to inability to obtain rights for some content.
Shout! Factory has done yeoman’s work in trying to correct this with WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete Series...The image quality, considering this series was originally shot on video tape, is almost uniformly outstanding. And, once again, Andy is overseeing a station playing the likes of Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, the Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, the Cars, Wings and the Police, instead of a series of featureless Muzak tracks.

However I bought them all over again, when I found the single seasons sold separately, maybe more costly but better picture quality.
This set my be cheaper option, quite watchable, unless you want better picture quality then buy the seasons individually. William - Toronto
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!
After so many years waiting for WKRP to be released the way it is supposed to be, it's so great to have it back with the music that was just as much a part of the spirit of the show as anything else.
Even in the spots where the original music couldn't be brought back, Shout Factory did a great job substituting music that fits right in nicely. I've watched several episodes so far and I have never felt cheated, unlike with the release a few years ago where we all felt completely ripped off.
It's a bit pricey, but it's well worth it...plus I'm sure it wasn't cheap getting this music back.
Buy it. Simple and plain.
