"Family Feud is a classic show that ran for an impressive nine years with the always dashing Richard Dawson as host. Though Feud has been revived a few times over the years, the new incarnations haven't come close to matching the original's popularity.
This DVD set includes some of the most memorable celebrity episodes of the game, most of which aired in primetime. It's a chance to see the reunited casts of classic shows like The Brady Bunch, Petticoat Junction, Gilligan's Island, Leave It to Beaver and others competing for charity. Other show casts taking part include WKRP in Cincinnati, The Love Boat, Eight is Enough, General Hospital, What's Happening!, Family, Dallas, Soap, Benson, The Jeffersons, and Welcome Back Kotter.
Prior to this release, you could only see the episodes if you were lucky enough to catch them on GSN. If you love classic TV shows and stars, you'll surely enjoy these episodes.
* Note: Though the box mentions the casts of Batman and Lost in Space, they aren't in this set. Only one episode from that particular special week of shows is included and features the casts of Hawaiian Eye and Gilligan's Island. It's still a great set but don't buy it looking for Batman and Lost in Space!"
Good episodes but bad DVD quality!

Survey Says, Dawson!

"There have been so many game shows that have been definitive. While the shows itself have shown new life, the hosts on the other hand, have not delivered the originality we often loved before. There is no other game show that has stated that point like Family Feud. No matter who has hosted the show whether it was the late Ray Combs, Louie Anderson, Richard Karn from Home Improvement, or the latest host John O' Hurley, we will always think of the original master of the feud, Richard Dawson. During his original 9 year run from 1976-1985, Family Feud really delivered as one of the definitive game shows of all time in syndication and on ABC. The show has also appealed well from its constant airing on GSN, and now there are feuds that are returning to the light for the first time in years, which are now on home video for the first time ever.
All-Star Family Feud is a 4 disc DVD set showcasing your favorite celebrities playing your favorite game show with surveys. The collection primarily focuses in on special primetime episodes from Richard's ABC edition from the 70's and 80's which include your favorite stars from shows like Soap, Loni Anderson from WKRP In Cincinatti, Susan Lucci from All My Children, and the cast of The Brady Bunch. The DVD also includes some episodes from the syndicated edition including the 1985 Hollywood Walk Of Fame week, which also features the feud creator, the late great Mark Goodson, as well as actress and T.V. pioneer Betty White and Ceasear Romero. The shows are refreshing to watch, some of them also have never been aired on GSN before, and bring in a great appeal to those who've loved Dawson's days when he used to say survey said.
While we've seen game shows recently that came to DVD as board games like Jeopardy and The Price Is Right, the actual episodes are much more fun to watch. Family Feud has had many DVD game editions, but this DVD set is definitely the best. I loved watching these great shows for the first time, and if you are a fan of classic game shows, you'll absolutely love All-Star Family Feud as a part of your DVD collection.
Overall: B 1/2+"

"This wasn't my typical DVD movie or TV show purchase. This occasion was reserved for good old family fun. My teenage children didn't grow up watching the original airing starring the one and only Richard Dawson on ABC TV and have only caught a few glimpses of this show while channel surfing though today's vast TV Wasteland. What made this purchase special was how it made the family gather around the television and participate with the program. Before we knew it, we had knocked down several episodes and the laughs kept coming. The kids loved it and it made what may have been just another evening more memorable. Like other reviews have stated, some of the program content mentioned on the box wasn't included on the DVD's and some of the programs had lower quality video than others but what would you expect for a game show this age? I'm sure they didn't record the episodes with DVD's in mind all these decades later. I highly recommend this DVD if you are in the mood for laughs or to spice up a family party or a get together with friends. The laughs we shared couldn't be measured in dollars spent (which by the way wasn't much) and we look forward to the possibility of future volumes."
