Complete Season 1 of WKRP in Cincinnati on DVD – What Crap!

I’m a huge WKRP fan. I’ve been waiting for them to release the show on DVD ever since the powers that be started releasing TV shows on DVD. Well, now the show’s been released and despite being billed as The Complete First Season the episodes are far from complete. Between almost complete music replacement and inclusion of syndicated versions instead of the originally aired versions, this DVD set is not close to the WKRP I remember.

I appreciate that it’s hard to secure all the music rights and I definitely think it’s better to see the show in some form than for it to never be released. Personally though, I’d rather find a way to see the show as it was originally meant to be seen.

For those of you who are interested in purchasing, make it an informed purchase. Here’s a link to a review of all the changes that were made.
