"Yesterday afternoon, the folks at Fox sent out an e-mail to the media with the subject "NEW STREET DATE - Girls Next Door Season 4 on DVD March 10". The contents of the e-mail was an updated press release, identical in most ways to the one we originally posted (so we're not going to bother to re-post the entire new one). The date had changed to the new one, of course. But what really got our eyebrows up was that the second paragraph had changed to read this way:
Featuring all 16 original episodes from the fourth season in a sexy three-disc set plus hilarious commentary from Holly, Bridget and Kendra on every episode and over an hour of deleted scenes not show on television, "The Girls Next Door" Season Four DVD collection will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada.
The revised press release had also changed the disc-by-disc breakdown to reflect that there are "Commentary on all episodes by Holly, Bridget & Kendra" and "Deleted Scenes" on each of the three discs in this set. We checked with Stacie Hougland over at Fandango.com, and she confirmed that her contents at Playboy had been given the same information: the title was delayed to March to add the commentary tracks and deleted scenes.

Love the show, but the DVD...not so great

"I love The Girls Next Door, I have all the seasons, watch every episode, its a really fun and entertaining show. But the dvd...leaves something to be desired. Its really cheaply put together, not a box set, just three discs in one container. The commentary has a lot of reverb, and sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. Since this is one of the last seasons with the Girls in the Mansion, I wish this dvd set could have honored them better with a little more quality. If you like the show, get the set, but don't expect too much."
Old Girlfriends Get No Respect

"I have all the other seasons and really like the commentary on those episodes. This is no exception. The girls talk about lots of things concerning when and how they left the mansion and Hef. Kendra talks about Hank and who she's inviting to the wedding. Bridget talks some about her beach series. All of them, especially Holly, have less than flattering comments about the new girls. It's not too catty, but if you've followed the girls for all 4 seasons, it will give you some closure. As to the quality of the set, I ordered on that came with a broken case. Amazon replaced it quickly with another copy also broken. Cheap plastic quality it the reason. I just repaired the 2nd one with duct tape and kept it."
Similar to past seasons, but commentaries reveal bitterness

"I am a huge fan of the Girls next Door. I have only watch a handful of the show on TV and choose instead to wait for the DVD in order to watch them at my pace without commercials. I started getting into the show at the time when the third DVD was being released so I was able to watch the first 3 seasons one after the other. For the fourth season, I was anxiously awaiting the release of the DVD. Initially, I was disappointed since the initial press release stated that only some episodes will have commentaries. Then, I was happy to learn that all the shows will have commentaries. Now my review is based only on the first 5 episodes, but I thought I could give you guys an idea of what to expect. Whereas the first 3 seasons had very good insight in the shooting of the show as well as fun and lighthearted comments, the fourth season's commentary reveals a different side of the GND. The commentaries were done at the time that Kendra and Holly had moved out and Bridget was still leaving in the mansion. All the girls, especially Holly, come off slightly bitter. There are long pauses where nothing is said and the girls tend to go off talking about something else not related to the show that they are commenting on. The commentaries are therefore not as fun to watch. You also have the usual deleted scenes (no commentaries)."
Really not what i was expecting

"I have the first 3 seasons already. They come in these really nice boxes with a sleeve for each disc. SO, I was expecting to receive something similar. Unfortunately, this season the discs come in a cheap plastic holder with 3 spots to hold the discs . It just looks really cheap. I love the GND but this season dvds looks really cheap"
