Jack's Big Music Show "Let's Rock" review

"Anything Jack's Big Music Show get's a 5 star rating in my book. My issue with this product is it is claiming to be "season 1" however when you receive the dvd it is only 4 episodes, 1 of which was just released in 2007. Episodes actually on the DVD are Ground Hog Day, Little Bad Wolf, Jack & the Bean Stock & How Mel Got His Groove Back.
Season 1 actually consists of the following episodes:
Little Bad Wolf
How Mel Got His Groove Back
The Music Genie
The Bongo Bird Laurie Berkner
Mel's Super Swell Dance Party
The Grumpy Squirrel Laurie Berkner
King of Swing
Seasion 2 episodes:
Leonard the Country Squirrel
Spunky the Alien
Phil the Coo-Coo Bird
Jack's Big Oops!
Jack's Big Orchestra
Super Swell Sing-Along
Comic Book Heroes
Mel's Bath Day
Jack and the Beanstalk
Only 4 episodes.

"We also have all these shows from the first two seasons on our DVR and had emailed the company long ago when we were waiting for the second season. I can't believe they're finally releasing this show on DVD but they're only putting 4 episodes on one DVD. Why not the whole first season? I'd pay more and have all of it because $15 for four short episodes is too much. And I don't think they're even the best episodes. The groundhog one was one of the weaker shows, we thought. The only reason to buy this would be to get the Jack and the Beanstalk episode, and I'm not sure that's worth the price. We're really disappointed that they're releasing this great show in bits and pieces."

"We wouldn't have survived the first two years of our very "spirited" son's life without this show. It is the ONLY, ONLY thing that calms him down and captures his attention when he's having a bad tantrum or night terror. We've watched this on the DVR at 3 in the morning, 4 in the morning, all hours of the day and night over the past 2 years. It NEVER gets old, and I find that really amazing. I can quote all the episodes verbatim, sing all the songs, but I'm not even sick of this show. As an adult I still enjoy watching it.
It's bright, colorful, moves along but doesn't get boring. There is no mind-numbing repetition (a la Dora) and the dialogue is intelligent enough to entertain adults. They manage to teach a lot without banging you over the head that they're trying to teach you (another problem I have with shows like Dora, etc.) Jack and Mary & Mel make learning about different types of music, instruments and even life lessons FUN and memorable.
Our guy is only 2, so obviously alot of it goes over his head. But he is mesmerized by the colorful characters and loves dancing to the music. Lately he's been trying to sing along with the songs too, and has picked up many new words from the show. He's been a difficult (but sweet) kid his whole life, and the only time I ever get a break is when Jack is on. It really engages him and he never seems to get tired of it either.
We owe Spiffy Pictures our undying gratitude for creating such a brilliant, smart, funky and fabulous show. IMO, it's better than Sesame Street was in its heyday, but that's just my opinion. Your mileage may vary, but there is no better show for children out there, period."
