I got the complete series last summer because one, I loved the cover art and that it was all 8 seasons in one simple case and I didn't have any of the individual seasons. I checked out S2 of Laverne & Shirley from my local library and fell in love! This was before I knew MeTV would bring it back that summer so I used a gift card for Amazon I got for my birthday and I got the complete series of Laverne & Shirley for $44 -- actually I pre-ordered it. I know about significant music edits -- but they didn't really affect me.
Shout! Factory, PLEASE release a complete series set of St. Elsewhere!!!
