Movie Reviews

Stingy offerings
(1 out of 5 stars)

"My low rating isn't based on the quality of the Burns and Allen show, which is very amusing, but the skimpyness of the offerings in this set. The 5 DVD's contain only eight 30-minute shows, all evidently from 1950, and a documentary. All of this could have been included on 2 DVD's. Each DVD contains only one hour of programing."
Big Disappointment

"I bought this compilation as a gift for my sister who really enjoys the show. I should have known something was up based on the low price for the set, but I was extremely disappointed to see that each disc only contain 2 half hour episodes. This is an extreme waste. A 5 disc set should easily contain 20 to 25 episodes and finding out that it only contains 8 episodes and a documentary makes me feel cheated."
Not on Film - Kinescope reproductions

"The Burns and Allen shows that were recently playing on TV were originally filmed so the quality was very good. Just like the Lucy shows. But this box set has awful quality and the shows and storylines are not anywhere near the filmed shows. DON'T BUY THIS BOX SET!!!"

"This DVD "set" comes with no descriptions of the episodes, and with good reason. The majority of the material appears on the much lower-priced single volumes of Burns and Allen released in 2003. You're paying for packaging. There are only 2 episodes on four of the discs. The final disc is a documentary. Save your money and buy Burn and Allen Vol. 1 & 2. This is a great disappointment and an utter waste of money! I suspect the Jack Benny set released at the same time is also a rip-off! (The issuers of this must be as cheap and miserly as the character Benny played). WATCH OUT!"
