Too bad Time-Life acquired rights to this show

"It's wonderful to have the opportunity to acquire this show on DVD. The jokes are still as corny as ever, the music still as good as ever, and Junior's delivery still cracks me up.
The sad thing is, Time-Life is the company putting out the DVD's. These DVDs are a poor value. One show is all that is provided.
Also, Time-Life has obviously not seen fit to restore any of the footage. Colors bleed badly (which is extremely obvious on a show with loud sets, lighting, and clothing), and grain is everywhere.
Should you buy this DVD, or the subsequent releases? Well, I doubt this show will ever be released as it should have been....in full season sets. So if you want to have copies of this classic, this is probably your only choice. Just prepare yourself to have deep pockets and low expectations.
Beter and worse than I was expecting

"in response to Yarby Yarby, this DVD, as well as the other 6 in the complete set showed no clor bleeding at all. Just the opposite. Colors were correct in hue and the contrast was excellent. The sound was ok, nothing to write home about but better than it originally sounded on the TV sets back then. My complaint is about the value of the whole set that I purchased from Time Life. Seven DVDs averaging only about 100 minutes, including some repeated material, is a rip-off for $120.00. The series is good enough that it should be offered in complete year sets. I'd buy every one. There is, however, a good sampling of the humor including my favorites, Junior Sample and the jug song about gloom, despair and misery on me. What is offered here on Amazon is the same that stores like Target carry but I encourage everyone to write to Time Life and beg for better offerings. They can do it if they want to"
It's the Hee Haw I remember, but only 1 episode?

"On the plus side, it's a complete episode, but $13 for one episode is very steep. The audio and video quality seems great to me, but I'm not ultra-picky.
The "Extras" are basically throwaways, consisting of links to the cornfield gags (that are already in the episode anyway) and a text list of guest stars (for that year?) That's IT.
I'm happy to see this great show again but I probably won't be buying many more Hee Haw DVDs at that price."
