You've GOT To Be Kidding Me!
BRADLEY R HUTSON | Illinois | 02/20/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Paramount has totally let true fans of classic television down with this much-anticipated release. Due to music issues, a handful of episodes (4 or so) have some original broadcast scenes deleted! This is completely unacceptable. They could have changed the music (which is bad enough in my opinion), but to delete the scene entirely is ridiculous! As much as I loved this show, I can't bring myself to support this set.

To add insult to injury, they still used the word "complete" on the cover! I've noticed in some upcoming Paramount releases that this word is suddenly missing. Check out the cover art for "Happy Days" Season Two and "Wings" Season Four. This leads us to wonder, are these shows truly complete, or will they suffer a fate similar to that of "Family Ties"?

As much as I've always despised music alterations, I've still bought DVD sets that used that tactic since the shows otherwise contained all of the original broadcast footage. But I will NOT buy a set that just hacks away at the episodes like this. If we do support these products, the studios will just keep getting lazier and lazier. Why should they care about putting work into their releases if the public will still gobble up whatever garbage they put out?

I really hate this, because I was looking SO forward to finally owning what I thought was going to be the complete and uncut version of each episode. I guess I should have known better than to count my chickens before they hatched."
Set contains edited episodes!

"Warning to all Family Ties fans that is buying this set,the set contains edited episodes.What I read is that Family Ties season 1 had some music that Paramount was to cheap to pay for,and so instead of replacing some of the music Paramount decided to delete some scenes from some of the episodes that contain music including a scene from the first episode.I think that's dumb changing the music is one thing but to edit episodes is a bunch of bull,we fans want to buy TV shows on DVD in there uncut form.Yeah go change the music but dont delete scenes.Of course not all the episodes will be edited so that is why I'm still going to buy this set to get the episodes that will be uncut."
The theme song was NOT changed
Matt | Washington, DC | 03/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is in response to the concerns a couple people have raised about the theme song. In the original broadcast run the theme song was sung by studio singers for the first 10 or so episodes only. After that new vocals were recorded by Johnny Mathis and Denise Williams over the same backing tracks and their vocals were heard on all subsequent episodes. That is exactly what happens on these DVDs. After episode 10 we get the Mathis/Williams recording on all the remaining episodes. I have all these early episodes on VHS recorded MANY years ago and the theme song - with both pairs of singers - is exactly the same."
