This is a wonderful collection of some of the best episodes of "Mad About You". With introductions available from Paul Reiser & Helen Hunt which give a lovely insight to the episodes. I had forgotten how funny these episodes are and so touching. The chemistry between Paul & Helen is wonderful and makes me want to watch them again and again.I wish there were more DVD's available in region 2 format of this great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT 10 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
By judging on the recent reviews I thought I wouldn't be happy with the packaging but it's was NOT bad at all!! I am happy I brought a tv series I grew up watching. It's worth it. Just note that you will have to be extra careful lifting up the disc's out of the cardboard cases and putting them in a dvd book case that should prevent any scratches. If you are like me and haven't already collected the individual seasons? You shouldn't find too many flaws. Also note the picture is of a standard quality and NOT HD or BLUERAY. I hope this helps for the fans who is considering buying this.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Flawed Release, but... 4 May 2016
By Lyndall S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First off I really enjoy this show. If I was rating the show I would have given it 5 stars. However what I'm rating this set is 3 stars. The picture quality sucks. The Picture is grainy. Not as grainy as the original release of Little House on the Prairie on DVD but not too far ahead of it (no static so far but definitely not good quality picture). Even though I have this set I will be hanging on to my original seasons of Mad About You because the picture quality is much better than in this set. The Second thing with this Mill Creek Release is the packaging. As with all Mill Creek DVD boxed sets the packaging is awful. This one is slightly better than most, but still awful. This release has a paper thin (not even cardstock thick) cardboard cover that slides off to reveal a paper thin cardboard inner cover advertising other mill creek releases. Inside that each season is on separate double sided slide out (paper) disc holders [I hate this type of disc holder, because they scratch the discs]. No labels on the slide outs identifying the season.
Having said that there is a pro: Seasons 6 and 7 are finally available on DVD

So I am glad this set is finally released, but quality has been sacrificed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Box is okay. The show itself holds up great over time. Image quality is poor. 31 May 2016
By Obi Wan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There are 3 elements here that factor into the overall value of this DVD set.

The box it comes in is mediocre at best. It's a 3 star box.
The show itself is fantastic and holds up well over time. It's a 5 star show.
The image quality of the show on the discs is VHS quality, not DVD quality. It's a 1 star for image quality.

Ultimately it's not even close to being worth the full retail price of $70. It's worth $20 for a used copy if you really like the show like I do. But don't pay full price. Ideally the full price would be $20. At $20 this is a decent value considering the poor image quality. I paid $30 for a used copy and am pretty cheesed off about the quality at that price. If I'd paid the full $70 retail price I'd be positively livid.

About the box...it's plenty good enough to keep the discs safe on your DVD shelf for decades to come. It's the transit to your house that can damage it. So just check out every disc and make sure everything looks to be in good condition before you pass whatever return window you have. But don't let the box be the reason you don't buy the set if you want to own the show. If you do get a bad one, Amazon will send you a new one without argument because...Amazon.

The actual show is great and holds up fine 2 decades later. It's VERY 1990's in terms of fashion and general stuff the characters are interested in. So it's kind of a blast from the past to rewatch it. I had completely forgotten about Lisa Kudrow being a regular side character as Phoebe Buffay's (From Friends) sister Ursella, who's character had numerous appearances on Friends as well. So stuff like that became a pleasant surprise the second time through the series, as I had just plain forgotten about it.

All in all it's a fine show that probably would never get a chance by networks today because it takes more than 2 episodes to get acquainted with the characters and networks want to see super high ratings immediately. But its still better than most of the junk on network TV today. It's a theme that any modern couple should still be able to relate to.

On that note I like it a lot more now that I'm married than I did when it originally aired while I was in high school. I can just personally relate to the characters more now. So if you remember liking this show in the 90's, you might find you like it a lot more now if you've gotten married since you last watched the show.

As for the print quality, it's not HD because the show wasn't filmed in HD. It was filmed in standard definition because there was no HD in the 1990's. And since the show wasn't originally filmed in HD video or on actual film stock, there is nothing that can be done to up convert it to full HD later. It cannot be done.

But even by standard definition standards, this isn't a good quality transfer by any stretch of the imagination. The digital image has been heavily compressed to fit each season onto 2 discs each. (14 discs total for 7 seasons). So the resulting quality is pretty poor. It's watchable, especially on a smaller TV. But it's not DVD quality. It's maybe a half step above VHS quality. This is where the full retail price tag on this set becomes completely unacceptable.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY disappointed in this release 14 July 2016
By D. Leon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'm very, VERY disappointed in this release. When you spend money to have a tv show in your collection, you expect to get the full shows, the original first run episodes. These episodes are seriously edited down, scenes missing from all episodes. One of the main reasons I bought it was to series finale, and the best part was the wrap up at the end when an adult Mabel tells what happened to all the characters. Her wrap up of about half the characters are missing. No Sheila, no Conroys, no Nat. Very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another company caring more about profit then a good product. . 11 July 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had ordered this set and I was very disappointed. The box it came in was thin and so it was crushed. The discs are in a card sleeve witch scratch the discs every time you slide them in and out no matter how careful you are. Next the picture was grainy and fuzzy and it was so poor that I could not even make it through the first disc when it started skipping and freezing. Disappointed that now I can't get the last two seasons without having to buy this full set again and thats not going to happen. Thanks to Amazon for helping me get my refund , they were great. But Im not going to waste my money and time trying to get another set to deal with the poor transfer of discs. Sorry to say this is definitely not worth it especially at the price.
