A sheep in wolf's clothing

Sadly iTunes claims this is the original TV show format. This is nothing of the sort. Oh sure the comedy is still great, as are the characters, but all the wonderful music that made this show great has been removed due to Fox not wanting to pay licensing fees for the song rights. This is false advertising. I downloaded the entire first season because I knew the DVDs had been changed, but the notation here led me to believe these were the true uncut versions. Taking out the music sours what was once a wonderful show. Do not download this series if you fondly remember the classic episodes.

Greatest show ever, but...

OK, having these on my iPod is great, and I also bought the DVD's last spring. Admittedly, this is my favorite show of all time. It appears that many others feel the same way based on the reviews here. But I take serious issue with the versions featured digitally, and think all of you who write "hey, it's not about the music" are missing a few key points. Many of the songs used originally were integral to scenes. ("Hot Blooded" in "A Date With Jennifer" comes to mind, and "Dogs" by Pink Floyd in "Turkeys Away" does too.) In some cases, entire scenes have been cut from this release where music can't be replaced! Even worse, some dialogue has been re-dubbed by different actors. This is a travesty of the highest order, and shows how little regard anyone at FOX has for the original show. Imagine "Goodfellas" with stock, schlocky music. It'd change the movie, wouldn't it? What if they re-dubbed "A Hard Days's Night" with non-Beatles music? What happens to future seasons? I recall music playing throughout the "Bomb Threat" 2-parter when Johnny & Venus are at the transmitter. Do they pay for that music, or cut the scenes? Or the episode where Carlson reads most of John Lennon's lyrics to "Imagine" for a censor-crazy Pastor? Can they use those? Look, I want to make this clear: I give the show 5 stars, more if I could. But what we're seeing here, with FOX cutting music, scenes, and re-dubbing lines, sets a dangerous example of how a company can somehow erase a show's history. For WKRP to live on and be recognized by future generations as brilliant, it needs to be the the original WKRP. Not these brutally sliced and diced versions. This is an insult to Hugh Wilson (who, allegedly approved these!), and the cast & creators of this great show. A travesty.


I'm glad the reviewers mentioned that the episodes are incomplete. I wouldn't dream of buying them now. Thanks for all you reviewers who mentioned it, and what are those who didn't mention it thinking?
