Please post any questions or comments about this set.
I bought this and its a good season, better than season 7 which has too many Pam centered plots and not enough of Vanessa. The best eps are the ones where Olivia isn't featured- A Lit Candle Will Cause a Meltdown, Some Gifts aren't Deductible, The Two of Us and Theo's Future. Although I've seen each of those many times in syndication, they are better than the others (although none of the eps are weak). It is good to see what was edited out in syndication in these eps. Denise and Martin had become irrelevant in season 7, so they're really not missed in year 8.
