Does anybody else subscribe to the GOOD TIMES Collector's Edition series. Columbia House has really screwed up several of the tapes. I have found 3 edited syndicated prints used: "The Hustle" on the IT'S A CRIME volume, "Junior The Senior" on the OUT OF THE GHETTO volume, and "J.J. And The Boss' Daughter" on the TEMPORARY LAY-OFFS edition. These episodes only run 22 minutes instead of the regular 25 minutes. In fact when my local channel ran one of them, they aired 2 minutes at the opening that wasn't in the Columbia House video. Believe it or not, Columbia House used the same episode on 2 different volumes of GOOD TIMES too. The episode called "A Real Cool Job" is on both the JAMES edition and the SCRATCHING AND SURVIVING edition. How did they screw this up? I can't believe they would force someone to pay for the same exact episode again! I contacted Columbia House. They said I could return these videos for a refund, but they could not explain these mistakes. Please feel free to comment on this subject. I used to have good faith in Columbia House / RE-TV, but no longer do!
