"Just received my copy today. Have not had time to watch it yet but thought others might like to know what is actually on the DVDs. There appear to be thirteen episodes from the entire run. Not exactly what I was looking for but just a bit better than nothing.
Update 16 October 2008.
Quite disapointing actually. Just a hodge podge of episodes. It's fine for someone who wants to see if they would like to put out the money for a full season sets but it should be priced much lower. It should have been a full season release. And there is only one episode where they go after DR DICK.

""Cybill" was one of my favorite shows from the mid-90's and was one of the funniest, most under-rated sitcoms of all-time. Cybill Shepherd was essentially playing herself, Cybill Sheridan, a one-time beauty queen and semi-famous Hollywood actress who's been married a couple of times with children from both marriages and is now over 40 and finding it more difficult to get the acting roles she used to get when she was a young ingenue.
Christine Baranski plays her best friend - boozy, over-the-top, cynical, socialite, Maryanne Thorpe, which deservedly won her a Best Supporting Actress Emmy and was the prototype for Megan Mullally's Karen Walker character on "Will & Grace". The talented supporting cast is rounded out by Alan Rosenberg and Tom Wopat who play her ex-husbands, Ira and Jeff; and Alicia Witt and Deeded Pfeiffer who play her daughters, Zoey and Rachel. Although the "Cybill" show only last four seasons on CBS, and I wish we could get the complete seasons on DVD, this is the next best thing.
Although it was described by some critics as a "Lucy and Ethel for the 90's" it's really much more than that. At it's best, "Cybill" throws a humorous light on what it's like to an actress over 40 struggling to maintain a career in Hollywood while still juggling being a mother, ex-husbands and finding romance. With it's sharp, witty dialogue and cast of zany characters - especially the outrageous Christine Baranski - it's more similiar to "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"."

"Cybill is an enduring favourite of mine. Very funny scripts and wonderful actors with great comedic timing.
For those able to view region 2 dvds, try Amazon in the UK because they have seasons 1 and 2 in complete season sets! I have both and they are excellent."

"What are the studios thinking?
Release this show in its entirety.
I got my Cybill complete seasons 1-4 from Amazon.co.uk
every single episode!
not some mish-mash of 'favourite' episodes (whose favourite?..not mine).
stay away from this and go to the UK site and get the complete 4 seasons."
