Not The Best

"As a long time Price Is Right fan I was eager to see The Best of The Price is Right. Unfortunately it is not on this dvd set. I did find the Bill Cullen shows interesting, and those old dark haired Bob shows were entertaining, but a little goes a long way when you are eagerly waiting for the best to begin. I expected to see the Price Is Right that I loved with the beautiful girls Janice, Dian, Holly, and the adorable Johnny. Those shows aren't anywhere on this dvd set. I was expecting The Best of The Price Is Right but sadly it's not here."
No 80's and 90's

"I am a big fan of The Price is Right. Having grown up with Bob, Rod and the girls, it was a staple of my childhood. It was always there. Neverchanging. This DVD collection was definately worth every cent. Right here is your chance to see the 50's Bill Cullen versions, along with some early Bob Barker episodes from 72-75. The quality was great. The only disappointing factor is that there were no episodes from 75-06. I recently seen all of Barkers last week at the helm, so I have yet to view that disk.
My only negative comment is the lack of 80's and 90's episodes. Hopefully a volume 2 will alleviate this.
Otherwise, if you are a TPIR fan, get your hands on this DVD"
Not the "BEST" of TPIR

"As a life-long fan of the show, I am very dissapointed. Fremantle would be better to put together a disc set of bloopers, set mis-haps, behind the scenes (showing the entires soundstage) and cast/crew interviews.
I have a problem with this being promoted as the "Best of The Price Is Right". This is in fact a compilation of what seems as the first season of The Price Is Right, their move to 1 hour episodes and the last week of Bob Barker.
I have seen better episodes on the Internet. I wish I could get my money back, but I would not be able to."
Price is right with "Price Is Right"

"Many have harped about the DVD set "The Best Of The Price Is Right" for its selection of its earliest four years of the CBS show and Bob Barker's final week as it excludes some noted show models. Others, who were born way after the CBS show began, think the Bill Cullen shows shouldn't have been included ("It's not in color!..." "it doesn't have pricing games!..." "the contestants aren't crazy!..." "we can't psychoanalyze the lettering font in a game display!"). Cry me a river, all of you. Cullen's show was TV's top game in its day and Barker's version probably wouldn't have made it on the air without it paving the way. As for the selection of Barker episodes, let it stand as a testament, a litmus test, of how it started as a "Let's Make A Deal" ripoff and became TV's longest running game. If anyone's to blame for not having a wider spread of shows, blame either CBS or Barker himself and his beef with the excluded models."
