3.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for the Show, 3 Stars for the DVD Set, 12 Aug. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saved By The Bell - Season 1 [DVD] [1989] (DVD)
I love love love this show, so when I found out the first season had been released in the UK I was ecstatic. I grew up watching this and still find it funny and charming as I did years ago.

However, as for the dvd box set itself I am disappointed. The episodes don't seem to be in chronological order. For example the first episode of the series is called "King of the Hill" which is where we see the gang's first day back at school and Slater introduced as the new kid. Therefore that should be the first episode on the first disc, however, that episode is on the LAST disc and is number 15 out of a total of 16!! I find it ridiculous that the pilot episode is the second to last episode in the set. Instead of starting my rewatch of this classic series with the pilot episode I find I'm watching "Dancing To The Max" which while a great episode shouldn't be the first episode on the dvd. Maybe I'm nitpicking but when I purchase a tv show on dvd I like to watch the episodes in order.

Another downside is the actual dvd packaging, it is rather cheap looking and could be so much better. Also other than a stills gallery there is no special features. It would be nice to see some gag reels, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, etc. but this being an old show I can understand it being difficult to obtain that material for a dvd release.

My main disappointment still resides with the episode order on the discs. It seems there is confusion in terms of the correct episode order due to the conflicting air dates. However, if a little time was taken to find out the proper order this dvd set would be so much better and would receive a 5 star rating.

I do hope the rest of the seasons are released in the UK, there is nothing more annoying than not being able to complete a dvd collection. I also hope more care is taken into future releases.

Unfortunately us Brits have it worse when it comes down to bonus material on US shows. I had a boxset of friends (the complete black one) and it only had a few extra's not much (apart from the theme song as an extra), also Canadian 'Dramedy' Being Erica when released through Channel 4/BBC International Distribution that had shockingly nothing but the episodes. My honest advice would to either buy a multi-region Dvd (Region 0) in the future or just buy the actual US copy and watch it in US format.

Hi, do you know if all of the episodes are uncut? I'm asking because on the US releases some of the episodes are cut. Maybe you could post the running time of all the episodes?
