      Inferior packaging and many poor transfers

      I was excited to see that this item was going to be released at long last. I had purchased all the individual seasons as soon as each became available, but seasons 6 & 7 were never released on DVD until this set became available. Now that I have this item in-hand, I must say I'm very disappointed. Many people in various reviews have already mentioned how weak and susceptible to damage the packing is, but what I was not prepared for was how awful the video quality would be for the final two seasons. Seasons 1-5 appear to be the same transfers as the previous releases, which is a good thing, but seasons 6 & 7 were mastered with an incorrectly blended frame rate at 29.97 fps. While previous releases were encoded at 29.97-interlaced, which could be detelecine'd back to 23.98 fps easily without noticeable quality degradation, more than half of the episodes in seasons 6 & 7 were mastered with noticeable frame blending as well as interlacing, making it impossible to view the images with clarity, even after going through a detelecine process. As a viewer with an eye for quality, I find this completely unacceptable, and I'm frankly surprised that Mill Creek allowed this to pass even the most relaxed of quality assurance inspections (assuming they have such a thing, which it's beginning to seem they may not). Due to the poor video quality and the cheap packaging, I am forced to give this set a fairly low rating. The 2 stars earned are strictly for seasons 1-5, which were already available, and not produced by Mill Creek.

      Just The Way I Remember It

      The series itself I would give five stars. I dinged this set two stars for the generic flimsy packaging and the video quality. This show is witty and hilarious. The writers must have had an absolute blast, and Reiser and Hunt have some real chemistry that brings it all to life. Some of the skits echo real life quite effectively and it's easy to relate if you've ever been married. The DVD packaging is cheap and flimsy - just a bunch of coated cardboard sleeves. Really don't like this kind of packaging because the sleeve actually touches the disk surface. Unless handled in a clean room, dust will get into the packaging and begin scratching the disc surface as it is inserted and removed. This looks like about the cheapest possible way to cram 14 discs into such a small space, and not a lot of thought or care was put into designing it. The video quality is about what I remember from over-the-air reception back in the 90's when I originally saw the show - lot's of smeary brown video noise. Not sure if this is because it was tele-cine'd directly from whatever third or fourth generation broadcast cassette they had lying around, or if the original masters were just sloppy. Many late 80's and early 90's TV shows were the unfortunate casualties of the transition from film to video cassette for original recording and they'r forever trapped in the realm of "good enough". Whatever the source, absolutely no effort to clean up the presentation is evident here. This was the least effort required to release the show.

      I along with everyone else waited for the last 2 seasons of Mad About You. I didn't really want to purchase this set because of all the bad reviews. How cheap can you get! Lets put the discs in cardboard sleeves and not label them in any way so the customer can be good and confused when they try to view. I would not recommend this to anyone unless like me you just have to have those missing seasons. I hope they come out with those separately.

      I was so glad to see "Mad About You" the full series on DVD. I have always thought that "Mad About You" was an underrated comedy/drama that was realistic and didn't try to pretend that relationships are always easy and take work.

      The quality of the episodes is ok. There are 10 or so episodes loaded on each disc. The storage is just a double-sided cardboard sleeve for each disc. Can't beat the price and the only way currently to get the show in a complete series, I believe.

      Mad About You is a classic sitcom that holds up well. The first few episodes are a little slow, but the writing and acting settle into a great rhythm.

      I was surprised and glad to get the entire "Mad About You" series for far less than I expected and I think any fan of 90's television will like adding this show to their collection.
