Great to rewatch the old series, but very basic and no frills.
It's great to see all the old eps of this show, I was a child when I first watched, sitting in the living room with my folks. I wasn't sure as an adult I would still find it funny, but I'm glad I took the plunge to find out that I still find it absolutely hilarious after all these years. My only real problems with this set isn't really the show itself, but the fact that unfortunately they had to change the intro music to this 60's sitcom sounding, slightly similar to the original song, kind of jingle starting with the third season. It kinda doesn't seem to go with the feel of the show. Also the packaging itself is kind of cheap. The discs are split into two piles of stacked together discs on a flimsy spindle on each side. The spindle literally crackles like the sound of the plastic some cookies come lined up in. I do like the inclusion of some of the special features on earlier seasons, interviews with the cast, but I do wish on season three you didn't have to hunt all 10 random clips throughout the three discs in 1-2 min easter egg finds. All in all, if you loved the show and want to watch it all all over again in sequence, including the lost episode "i'll see you in court" then this may be what you're looking for. Check the prices of all 11 seasons individually and see if this isn't better economically. I believe that all the discs in this are the same as in those, just repackaged together here. The visual quality hasn't really been changed much from how it would have looked on cable back in the day, and the sound is probably pretty similar too, so don't look for anything spectacular there, but I'm not sure a show like this really needs all that anyway. Overall it's still very enjoyable, but a very basic no frills set.Read full review

Awesome collection of shows from a great series.
As a fan of the show when it originally aired, I couldn't wait any longer to get the DVDs. It was everything I expected. It has a photo of each Bundy on the inside. It doesn't have the episode list on each disc, just season/disc number. There is a sheet with the list of shows and it crosses to the season/disc number, so it is easy to find the episode you want to watch. There are extra features on some disc's, but I didn't go through them yet.

A classic series for a cheap price!
I brought this dvd because because ive been a fan of married with children since I first watch the series in 1988 and a steal of a price. I purchased the entire set for only about 30 bucks! Wow u can't beat that price! The only thing I didn't like is the opening theme song changed after season 3. But the show is so hilarious that part is easily ignored. My opinion of the funiest shows ever made on television. something unforgettable with every episode! Trust me you will crack up on every episode. A must have in everyones dvd collection and at a cheap price!

Married With Children--32 discs for around $1 a disc? How can you go wrong?
Married With Children is the best series out there from the 80's and 90's. when I saw that the complete series was available for under $40, I hit the floor! That is an extremely good deal considering there are 261 episodes on 32 discs. That's a little over a dollar a disc.
Plus there is bonus footage included, they have clips of their 25 year reunion on the set of the show. This is an amazing but for those true diehard fans, or someone that's looking to just get into the series. Now I have it at my fingertips, especially since Netflix took it off their roster as of 10/1/2012. This is the only way to watch the show on your terms. How can you say no to Al Bundy, the wife hating shoe salesman that will never trade in his rusty Dodge... Or his wife, Peggy Bundy, the high haired housewife that loves Oprah, Bon-Bons, and hates housework. Then there are their two children, the oldest which is Kelly Bundy, the pretty girl with nothing but air in her head and her choice of suitors to surround her. Finally there's Bud, the typical growing teenage boy exploring with "himself" and striving for a date with anyone, but the poor kid almost always strikes out. These characters, along with their incredibly smart and lazy dog, Buck, bring the whole sitcom together. Nothing would be the same without the two wacky uptight yuppy neighbors that aren't afraid to put in their opinions of the family and get into trouble with them as well.
This series never gets old, I could watch these re-runs over and over again. The only negative thing I would have to mention is that the theme music is not the same as it was when it originally aired. Now it's some orchestra music that tries to be similar to the song "Love And Marriage", but falls extremely short and becomes more annoying than anything else. Thank goodness for the the fast forward button.
Overall, I think this is a great purchase and the Bundys will always have a place in my TV heart ;)Read full review

this is a great tv comedy collection,it's an outstanding value,too.
MWC was my absolute favorite tv show from the mid-'80's through the '90's.i had nearly every episode on VHS tape..when DTV had gotten under way,i ditched my outdated S-VHS machine as well as all of my old tapes.i had always wanted a complete collection of the series on DVD,so i could watch it any time i wanted to.
the only thing i don't like about it is that the index sheet is rather brief (1 page in small print) you don't really know which episode is which at first.additionally,the studio had named all of the episodes~so,you might not recognize which it until you watch it for a minute.it's a bit confusing.
this is an excellent box set.i don't regret buying it one bit:) it's an outstanding value.
