Great Season, Sub-par DVD transfer, Horrible Editing

"Little House on the Prairie was really moving along when it reached season 5. Matthew Laborteaux was added as Albert who really added some depth and dimensions to the show, especially after Mary loses her sight and moves to Winoka.
The quality of the DVD for some of the episodes, as indicated by other reviewers, ranges from good, to okay, to down-right horrible. I've collected a number of television DVDs, and I have to say that this is by far the worst one in terms of quality. I mean, how difficult is it to transfer it over correctly? No one else seems to have had the trouble that Imavision has had.
Another note is that the editing is horrific. Little House episodes always went to commercial breaks with the classic "fade out." You'll note in a many of these episodes, there is an immediate cut from a scene. Unfortunately, these episodes are NOT complete. There are many parts missing in various episodes. I know that these scenes are not "lost" or "missing," because I saw them just the other day when the show was on a television network.
Understand that my complaints are due to the lack of quality that has been put into this DVD rather than with a show that I grew up with and loved to watch every week.
I can only hope that enough complaints may prompt NBC to put out the kind of DVDs that they are known for. You would think they would have put more effort toward one of the best family shows of all time.
I encourage anyone who is unhappy with their product to e-mail imavision and let them know. Perhaps with enough response, they might one day be prompted to giving us a truly complete season.
Note: It seems that most of the TV series that are released through NBC Home Entertainment are edited. These include Little House, Cosby Show, and Highway to Heaven from what I've seen and possibly others."
By far the best DVD release for the series......

"Little House on the Prairie is on its 5th season at last for the DVD's, and I have to say that Goldhil has been taking it up a notch with each season release--they keep getting better and better! At last, in addition to scene selection, season-appropriate cover art and a good navigation menu, we are finally getting some extras. Two exclusive interviews are provided on this set: one from Alison Arngrim (Nellie) and the other from Dabbs Greer (Reverend Alden). Both have grown a great deal over the years but they look and sound exactly the same--aside from the short hair, Arngrim genuinely has not changed a bit! She still has that Nellie Oleson "glow"! =) What they have to say on these inteviews is very interesting and will be thoroughly enjoyed by any fans--how fun to see a bit of the cast as they appear today!These interviews were quite a surprise to see on the DVD's, especially since I hadn't heard anything about them beforehand, and they are a nice touch to the DVD collection. The episodes, of course, are fantastic as well; from the Ingalls family's return to Walnut Grove to their adoption of Albert to Mary's wedding and other fun and often touching events, these 5th season shows hit at just the right frequency. This point in the series was probably the most pivotal, with Mary's recent entrance into blindness and the Ingalls' decision to take in little Albert as a member of their family. Their friends the Garveys also assume a larger role here, but for them their real trials arrive in Season 6. As for the visual and audio quality on this season set....that whole concept never bothered me at all, because we all know that the DVD's look and sound 50 times better than they ever did on television, but I did notice that a few episodes (particularly "The Cheaters") looked almost black and white at times. I never noticed that before, but I did here. It is not a big deal and should be fine for most, but I know that some fans are affected by the color and picture. Regardless, I think I speak for a lot of fans when I say THANK YOU for releasing Season 5 with some extras and continuing with the great improvements. If there is any DVD TV series to collect, "Little House" is most certainly the one!"
