  • All the episodes are uncut too, as they should be, and there was a lot of new content that was a part of episodes that I thought I knew very well and was enjoyable to see for the first time now that I wasn't watching the show all cut up on television stations
  • Fans will get a kick out of the bonus features on this DVD season set, I think
  • Hearing what these two talented men had to say about the episodes and show in general was interesting because they drop some backstage tidbits here and there that I didn't know about previously
  • Retailing for just under twenty dollars, this DVD season set is very much worth the money in my opinion and so, I'm rating the DVD season set a 10

      “The Dick Van Dyke Show” is one of the rarer classic sitcoms when it comes to finding the television show on television stations. Fortunately, Image Entertainment has released all the seasons to DVD and boy did they ever do a fine job treating this classic television show with the respect that it deserves! I’m very pleased that the DVD season sets that came later all featured the kind of bonus content that this first season DVD set had, in addition to sporting a very attractive picture and clear audio track.

      The complete first season of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” contains all thirty episodes that made up the first season of this show. All the episodes have been delicately transferred to the DVD format and look phenomenal. For a television show that aired in the 1960s, the episodes sure


      aren’t showing their age. In crisp and clear black and white, the sets look inviting, real and functional and there’s minimal grain in the picture, so there’s no distracting splotches or lines that will show up and disrupt one’s focus on the comedy and story. The musical cues, dialogue and laughter from the audience all will fill the room that you’re watching the show in because everything comes through good and strong. All the episodes are uncut too, as they should be, and there was a lot of “new” content that was a part of episodes that I thought I knew very well and was enjoyable to see for the first time now that I wasn’t watching the show all cut up on television stations.

      Fans will get a kick out of the bonus features on this DVD season ...


      • set, I think. For one thing, a pilot episode from a show that never got picked up called “Head of the Family” with Carl Reiner, writer for and actor on “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, is included on the set, and there, fans will see what would soon evolve into “The Dick Van Dyke Show”. This is a very rare pilot episode and it sure was a treat to find it on this DVD season set! I was also really pleased to find that two episodes on this DVD season set had an audio commentary track by Dick Van Dyke and Carl Reiner. Hearing what these two talented men had to say about the episodes and show in general was interesting because they drop some backstage tidbits here and there that I didn’t know about previously. There’s also
        some rarely seen footage involving the cast as well as sponsor advertisements, photo galleries, retrospective interviews and more! This DVD season set is just loaded with extras prepared special for this season set release.

        “‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ The Complete First Season” is a DVD season set that fans of the show will want to see. The episodes are uncut and are very much watchable in terms of picture and audio quality. There’s a great deal of bonus content that offers the fans a chance to hear from some of the cast and crew on the show as well see some footage of the cast that hasn’t been seen for decades. Retailing for just under twenty dollars, this DVD season set is very much worth the money in my opinion and so, I’m rating the DVD season set a “10″.
