Nice to see all the episodes in one collection

"Within weeks of the release of the wondrous Walt Disney Treasure DVD set, "The Mickey Mouse Club Presents Annette," here we have her far more opulent descendant of teen stardom, "Hannah Montana" in its first full-season collection.
It's not like you can't turn on Disney Channel and see a multitude of "Hannah" shows at will, but they tend to be clustered without sequence, so it's a different experience to see each show one after the other without promos and other network clutter that even clogs the occasional series marathon.
Like "The Monkees," when the furor fades and the songs fall from the charts, the show itself is left to stand on its own. While no one pretends this is "30 Rock" or "Frasier," the "Hannah" series is a capable effort, with Miley Cyrus carrying virtually every scene with timing and confidence that develops somewhat over the episodes. What also becomes clear is the comic frenzy of Jason Earles as her brother, Jackson. Earles is actually older than he looks and his skill really comes through in the polished slapstick.
Each episode's title is a wordplay of some musical reference ("Miley Get Your Gun," "Good Golly, Miss Dolly," etc.). The first few shows, which set up the premise, don't get as much airplay and are interesting to watch because, as in many early series episodes, the characters are not developed and the cast is getting used to the material and each other. It would have been nice to have some audio commentary by this highly accessible cast. Instead there are episodes with a few inserted comments from Miley culled from other interviews called "Hannah's Highlights."
The Disney Channel Games kickoff episode and a vignette with Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus on their home turf round out the extras. The "Games" segment would be almost sure to be a fun thing for kids to watch a decade from now to see which stars they can remember and what a big deal it all seemed to be at the time.
It would be nice to see more of the Disney Channel shows get this kind of treatment, especially the very entertaining "Corey in the House," which is now out of production.
Great dvd box set!

"Finally, there's now a complete season one dvd set for the Hannah Montana series! This is well worth buying and it would be such a good keepsake for any Hannah Montana fan. The episodes are all worth watching over and over again and hopefully there will be a box set release for the other Hannah Montana seasons!"
Best TV series to be produced in a long time

"I saw the promo for this show before it first premiered on the Disney channel.
As a kid, being a rock star was one of my fantasies. That was not unusual in itself I don't think. The thing in my case was that I wanted to be a "secret" rock star living a double life. So, I had to check out this show when it first aired.
Naturally, the show was aimed at younger kids. But I fell in love with the show during the first episode, "Lilly Do You Want to know a Secret." I think this is one of the best TV series to be produced in a long time. I bought the first season the day it was released on DVD and I am looking forward to season 2, 3 and 4 when they are released.
It's great to be able to watch the shows on demand or in series the way they were created. This is the perfect gift for any Hannah Montana fan!
I especially like the special features included in the DVD set.
They have an episode of the Disney Channel Games 2008. It features a performance of Breakout by Miley Cyrus at the Disney Channel Games Stadium.
In "Back Home Again with Miley," Miley and her dad, Billy Ray take us for a tour of the family farm where she grew up back home in Nashville, Tennessee.
Can't wait for season 2

"Great show, Miley Cyrus has such great comedic timing at a young age. My Wife and I even though were up in age and are no longer the pre-teen teenie bopper phase, we enjoy watching Hannah Montana. The show is very family friendly without being too stupid. If you like your comedy done with tounge in cheek check it out."
