Reviewed on 2/25/2008...
This is a collection of 8 episodes of Match Game ranging from the first episode in 1973 to the subsequent first appearance of Bret Somers to later post-Richard Dawson episodes in 1979 and 1980.

I have no idea why this is called the "Dumb Dora" edition, as there isn't a single Dumb Dora gag in any of the episodes. However, to redeem it slightly, there is a 22 minute bonus segment with Brett Somers sharing some of her memories from these episodes.

Don't buy this with the Match Game boxset - it's disc 1
joseph Corey | Raleigh, NC United States | 02/10/2007

"I've been enjoying the Match Game boxset with the wonders of Charles Nelson Reilly. But you do not want to buy this as the "buy together" package since "dumb dora edition" is merely the first DVD in the boxset. If you don't want the boxset (which you should). This is a good min-treat."
Great for those who are on a tight budget

"Yes this is disc one, but if you could not afford the 4 disc box set then this is for you."
Dumb Dora Is So Dumb....

"This is a single disc of "Match Game" from its very early days (1973-1976), and given its price since it went out of print, it's probably wise to buy one of the multi-disc sets that are a better value. For fans of the show, this disc is interesting as it has the very first Match Game episode hosted by the legendary Gene Rayburn plus several others. (As an aside, I noticed how quickly the writing of the questions improved after the debut episode.) There is also a special feature starring frequent panelist Brett Somers, who, sadly, passed away in 2007.

The games are as entertaining as they were when they first aired, but it would have been nice to have more consecutive shows in the set. The panelists are a varied lot, some of whom have vanished into obscurity in the thirty-something years since their were made. Others are noteworthy, and several became forever linked with the show, notably Richard Dawson, Brett Somers, and the always entertaining Charles Nelson Reilly, who passed away just a few months before Somers.

This is one of the original franchise of good clean fun television game shows, and if you don't mind paying the price, this is a genuine piece of television history."
