This 3 disc set contains 24 episodes from the 4th season. The first 3 episodes were
shot without Redd Foxx as he was out due to a contract dispute. The episodes were
shown in a different order then they were shot to cover up his absence. Guest stars
for this season included David Doyle ("Charlie's Angels", Ron Glass ("Barney Miller"),
Howard Hesseman ("WKRP in Cincinnati") and Scatman Crothers ("Chico and the Man").
The packaging is attractive and comes with a mini booklet detailing the 24 episodes. There
are also 3 interesting trivia factoids listed on the dvd packaging.
Video and Audio Quality:
The video and quality of is similar to the first 3 season releases. For these
episodes being almost 30 years old, they still look and sound very good. The dvds are
much improved over the VHS tapes that Columbia House has released over the years.
The only extras included are 3 trailers for Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment DVD Releases.
While some fans may be disappointed with this, it is nice to have the quality and convenience
of having the episodes on DVD after years of only having them available on VHS in their original
format. 2 more seasons and the series will be complete on DVD!
