M*A*S*H - Season Six


TITLE: M*A*S*H - SEASON SIX


Info:

DVD Release Date: June 8, 2004 (20th Century FOX)
color/637 mins
MSRP: $39.98
Number of discs: 3
Number of episodes: 25 half hours
Languages and subtitles: English mono, English No Laughtrack, French mono, & Spanish mono. Closed Captioned; Subtitles in English, French and Spanish.
Special features: None


Introduction:

M*A*S*H Season Six features fan favorite episodes such as the one hour season premiere "Fade Out, Fade In;" "Fallen Idol" and "Major Toppo." Some famous faces that guest star inclue James Cromwell, Bernard Fox, George Lindsey, and Hamilton Camp. Each disc has eight episodes each in original airdate order.


Packaging:

The DVD packaging is pretty nice and comes with a nice booklet listing the season six episodes & synopsis, along with other great information. There is also a mini-booklet showing other 20th Century FOX releases. And fans can start drooling because another card states M*A*S*H season seven will be out this December! The discs' look seem basic to me and nothing fancy. When you open the case, the discs usually fall out.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu screen is decent. It lists each episode on the disc and you select which one you want and then it takes you to the languages or scene selection option. Please note that the languages section has the "no laughtrack" feature on there, if fans are looking for it. I'd have that as a separate option, because not many people would think of looking in there for that feature. The scene selections are quite large. Usuaully sitcom sets have about 3-5 different places where they can jump to. M*A*S*H has about 10-12 and the season premiere has over 20 scene selections! I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. Some fans prefer a few scene selections, some prefer a lot. I don't really care how many there are. And like season five, there is a play all feature, which fans have wanted on the first four season sets.


Video and Audio Quality:

The video is pretty good I guess, especially for 1977. During the opening credits you can see black dots at times though. The audio is good, but it is in mono. Fans should play these episodes without a laugh track because of course there was no real studio audience and I think that if shows don't have a live studio audience, then there is no point in having a laugh track. You can also play the episodes in French and Spanish or you can play it in English with French or Spanish subtitles.


Special Features:

Like the first five seasons, this set has no extras. I'm sure fans would love to have some bonus material and have told 20th Centry FOX that and yet they haven't done anything about it yet.


Final Comments:

There are five seasons still left to come on DVD and also the series finale. I hope 20th Century FOX has some bonus material planned for at least ONE of those sets!


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars):

Video quality: 4.5/5
Audio quality: 4.5/5
Special Features N/A
Menu Design/Navigation: 4.5/5
Overall: 4/5 (AGAIN needs extras!!)
