The Worst Collection Ever Assembled

"This so unbelievably bad it's astounding. The major problems are:
1. The editors must figure that TV comedy dies in about 1950. Mostly a collection of very old kinescopes of the beginnings of movies and TV. Skelton, Berle, Benny, Gleason, Burns & Allen and Lucy. All great, but the quality of most of these cuts are real bad.
2. No closed captioning. Coupled with the bad sound quality, many bits are impossible to hear and understand.
3. But the most grievous complaint I have is the repetition. I didn't count them all. But, in 6 DVDs, there were at least 4 versions of "Who's on First", 2 of Lucy ready to give birth, 3 of Lucy and Ethel in the candy factory, and that's just the ones that come to mind. What possible justification can there be for this? These DVDs were made as a set by the same people at the same time.
And by the way, you can find this collection for about $20 less at other places, but it isn't even worth that.
