"Growing up on the old Nick at Nite lineup where true classic television series were shown, I feel like the shows of the 1950s and 1960s were very much a part of my childhood so I was thrilled to see "Private Secretary" (later dubbed "Susie" in syndication) available on DVD. However, I never saw this series but I vividly remember loving "The Ann Sothern Show" and figured I'd give it a whirl. I'm very glad I did. "PS" is in the same vein as "Ann Sothern" and even features the same cast. Yes, the story lines are dated and yes, some of the jokes are corny, but the writing and comic timing of the cast is still fresh even after all this time. That being said, the only complaints I have about this set is the fact that only four random episodes are featured on each disc (equaling 16 episodes). "PS" ran for five seasons, so I'm actually a bit disappointed that an entire set or season hasn't been issued. There's also the problem with the quality. These episodes are definitely NOT remastered and as another reviewer stated, the soundtrack is warbly and, at times, static-y. While I'm thrilled to have any Ann Sothern television show available on DVD, I think that it's high time that some company starts releasing these old gems in a proper set. This show isn't for everyone and only die-hard 1950s sitcom or Ann Sothern fans will value this release...even if the music sounds like a drunk band is playing!"
