Summary of "The Complete Series - A Set for the Fans":
I remember watching this with my dad years ago, and while I was too young to understand much of the show, I knew my dad really enjoyed it. Watching it now, I'm amazed by how well the show holds up. The show is over 30 years old, but the jokes still work really, really well, and I often found myself laughing or snickering at what was said. It's quite obvious why so many people loved this show, and were so disappointed with the first season when Fox released it.

Shout! Factory has put together a wonderful set for the series. While there will be the vocal minority that pick it apart, I'm fairly certain that the vast majority of the fans will love the set. Shout! definitely put a lot of love into it, so put this on your holiday list if you have a WKRP fan in your life. (read entire review)
