Great collection for the price

"I was hoping that this collection would have some new stuff and was glad to see that it's filled with these really early live TV shows that I hadn't seen before. (Actually, I didn't even know he HAD his own TV show in 1951.) Borge does repeat some of the bits in other shows, but all in all, it's great fun to watch him so (comparatively) young, doing his thing. I saw him at Carnegie Hall during his 75th birthday tour and he still had "it." Some of the sketches on this show seem almost surreal or absurd in a Kovacs kind of way. And it's a kick to see Art Carney just before Honeymooners."
Not quite as expected

"The quality of the sound (the pictures are good enough) is not very high. Perhaps it isn't more to expect of a TV-show produced in the early 50's, but I expected better. Also I would say that Mr. Borge was much funnier later in his career. I have another DVD: "The Victor Borge Collection" which is a collection of his best acts and there he is much older in most of the sketches than in those from "The Victor Borge Show Collection" and I have to say; he is also way funnier. Nevertheless, he is certainly funny sometimes here also."

"This set shows what TV was like in its earliest days, a window into the past. This is sooo great! Quit shopping you found what you need, the ultimate Victor Borge."
Victor, the best!

"I only gave 4 stars due to the quality ofthe viewing, but the content was proof that today's humour has lost the down right funiness of past era's rib tickling situations, with none of today's sick smut!"
