Deceptive practices by A&E. 1-hour 'Roast' episode is missi

"The cover of this dvd says 'the complete season 3' - it is NOT. Missing is the one hour 'Roast' episode. They have the moments leading up to the show, the planning of it, etc. and at the end of the episode it says 'To be continued...' hmm, well it did not continue on this dvd apparantly. It is nowhere to be found. On the 4th disc is an episode called 'Fan Favorites" and, to add insult to injury, they show clips from the Roast...that's riiiight the one missing from this DVD. This is very deceptive of A&E home video and the producers of the show and being a fan of the show, do not appreciate and feel duped just by seeing the world 'complete' on the dvd cover. So be warned - this does NOT have every episode of season 3. Why they would leave out the funniest moment of the show and leave us feeling let down is beyond me. My guess is they want to release it seperately and gouge us a second time with the price. Very dissapointing. I suppose the next dvd set of this show they will change the opening music and edit down episodes and not tell anyone just like a lot of the TV show dvds that come out these days. I wish deceptive practices like this would stop. This is my only complaint with this dvd. I'm a huge Kiss/Gene Simmons fan but I was really ticked off by this. Anyone agree with me?"
Such a deal...does GENE know?

"I just picked this set up...and for well under $20!!
4 DVDs, 28 hilarious episodes, 3 very nice bonus features at nearly a half hour each for over 11 hours of fun ...just about a buck an hour...I can't believe Gene didn't blow a valve when he heard this price!
For those who haven't seen the show I strongly suggest viewing from the first season onward....its not a necessity but its a fun story arc. If I was being picky I'd have to say that it is of course becoming a tad repetitive but it really comes down to if you like the family and enjoy spending a half hour with them at a time...and I do. I actually wasn't a KISS fan before my girlfriend kept nagging me about the show and now I am as big a fan as she. You do NOT need to be a KISS fan or know their music to enjoy the show..and I must say that unlike the Osbournes...these are people not fighting abuse and being abusive but the oddity is that they are very normal and in fact in many ways an ideal family...sort of a modern day Nelson family!
the production values are still very high...so if you've enjoyed the other seasons...there should be no reason to hold back..I cant' imagine this being much cheaper...
Love the show, but...

"My wife and I enjoy watching Gene Simmons Family Jewels and have watched every episode except for "The Roast". The claim on the case and everywhere else is The complete Season 3. That is false and very annoying. Leaving out the roast was the worst idea ever. Stating it is the complete season and then leaving out one of the best parts was quite annoying. Guess I'll have to resort to other methods to get future episodes."
Loses two stars for leaving out the Comedy Roast

"I really enjoy this series (flaws and all) but I was also disappointed that they left the "roast" off the set. I bought the set immediately because I was not able to see the complete roast when it aired, but apparently they've decided to release it separately or something.
I still enjoy the show, but leaving the roast off the DVD set was a dud decision."
