Not yet but I'll be reviewing it for the review section (assuming USPS doesn't lose it like they did my last batch of screeners)

I do. I watched the entire set over a course of about 2 weeks. I don't have a great set-up for reviewing discs, but both the picture and sound (DD 2.0) seemed fine to me. No subtitles are included, and you can't switch between the audio tracks (show and commentary) on the fly. Extras include commentaries on four episodes (1, 2, 4, and 6 if my memory is correct). The first 2 commentaries were a little disappointing IMO with more silence gaps than I would have liked, but the latter 2 were better (more informative and entertaining) IMO. The only other substantial extra (if you can call it that) is Lenny the Bookie's odds which were deleted from the original broadcasts (they're added into the program). aside from those extras are a Moore biography and trailers for other Docurama discs, as well as a couple of weblinks.

If you are a fan of Moore or the show, I recommend the set.

For a better review of the set (from an experienced reviewer), click here (if you don't want to wait for Gil's review, which I'm sure will be good as usual).

BTW, I don't have the set with me so I can't answer any specific questions, but I'll try to answer general questions the best I can.

I finally found the 2 disc set at best buy. Can't wait to watch it :-)

P.S.- If season 2 is half as good as season 1, the I will be one happy boy!

I thought it was pretty good, I can't probably do a very good review of the show. But I you like Moore than you'll love this. I watched it over about 4-5 days. That's not too long for a complete season of a show either. Sorry I can't help any more.
