Aren't these just the previously released (edited for syndication) season sets boxed together?

For the life of me, I don't understand why it's so damn hard for companies to release unedited sets. If people would stop buying them, companies would stop releasing them.

There are some edited episodes, yes, and the quality isn't very good at least on the first season. However right now this is the only way to get the previously unreleased fourth and final season.

I tried watching part of Season One in SD and the image was so bad that I had to give up. Definitely a landmark series and a trailblazer but the quality was all over the place and hard to take. And they BluRayed this?

They used what footage they had. Shout factory looked for over 2 years to try and get all the episodes unedited, but it seems like for at least a dozen or so episodes the unedited versions simply don't exist anymore. And for another handful of episodes Shout thought it would be better to include the unedited episodes in a rougher presentation than to deliver edited episodes.

I think it's a mix bag when it comes to releasing television shows from before 1980. No one even had an idea about the home video market and once a television show aired, it wasn't important anymore like it is today.

Yeah definately agreed. I grew up with this series as my dad loved it!! I myself will take it even though the early season(s) video is not the best and varies per the review here on DVDTalk! Hell we lived with VHS for years and now we are all a bit spoiled but to own a classic series like this is fine with me to just finally have it complete-

Re: Route 66 CS $70.00 @ DVDPlanet.com

I can live with the less than wonderful video/audio quality, but I have a real problem with missing content. I don't mind missing previews and bumpers, but if five minutes of an episode's storyline is missing, that's HUGE.

Does anyone know the exact number of episodes that were edited for syndication?
