    Burnett Deserves better than this DVD, December 22, 2003

    Let me start first by admitting my bias: I’m a HUGE Carol Burnett fan. I grew up watching the show, and loved it because it was so funny, and it made my folks laugh, too.

    However, this DVD is simply a lot of promise and no delivery. Imagine someone tells you about this great wine. You are shown the bottle, it’s poured in the glass, you’re allowed to smell its bouquet, and then… it’s taken away. That’s just how you’ll feel watching this DVD. First off, the DVD is only 40 minutes long – the original hour special, minus all the commercials. There are hours of material that could have been put into a proper DVD, so why wasn’t it? The material that is here is very funny, but 10-15 second clips just only go so far with true fans of this very funny show. The show was so great, with such a great cast – why no one bothered to dig in and add some content to the DVD version of the TV special is way beyond me.

    Save your money, and send a letter to the companies that hold the rights to the Carol Burnett Show, and ask them to produce a proper DVD special!

    I wish I had paid attention to the numerous reviews that stated that this was not a good buy… I was very disappointed to get a DVD that showed a couple of minutes of a scene. It included language that was, of course, censored on the live broadcast. And the funniest scenes (e.g., Tim as “The Dentist”) were not even included. Bottom line, if I can’t have entire episodes, I’ll just live on my good memories of the show… and the 2 or 3 episodes I recorded on videocassette.

    I wonder if they’re waiting for our generation to die off so that it can be presented to kids who never saw it before. WE are the ones who would really appreciate it.

    I agree with other reviewers – the Carol Burnett show should be put on DVD in its complete, total, absolute, full and whatever else synonym you can find entirety, this little tiny excuse for entertainment doesn’t begin to satisfy. Please, please, please – whoever owns the rights to the show, please, please, please – release it in total. I’ll pay lots of money for it. Please, please, please!
