Sweet Lord. I never thought a product like this would exist and I'm a little embarrased to admit it, but... I'm totally buying this.

What details? Is it just me or has amazon.com become increasingly lazy about posting true details on their DVD releases? I recall when they wrote synopsis and reviews for the DVDs. There is NOTHING there aside from disc count and other information that doesn't matter.

In my experience, most of their earlier releases (years ago) were poor. But lately, they've been putting out some really well done stuff. The Flash Gordon animated series leaps to mind as a great set, and I know they've done some other things as well (animated and otherwise).

The picture quality may be iffy (and it probably would be no matter who put this out), but I suspect the whole package will be put together nicely with some great extras.

Wow, I used to watch this all the time of the Gameshow channel...I always thought Bob Barker looked weird not hosting a show lol

Richard gets dissed on the front cover!

I'm psyched!

They need to package that set with a skinny mic.

I noticed the same thing...funny, since Match Game made Dawson a star (sorry, Hogan Heroes & Diana Dors fans) and his appearances on this show got him the hosting job on Family Feud. Any bets it has something to do with Richard's "lack-of-cooperation" with the producers of this set?

It's more likely that when people think of Match Game, they think of Charles Nelson Riley and Brett Summers. Those are the two that pop immediately into my head. Of course, if you're looking for an angle, you could say they were racist for not putting Nipsey Russell on the cover. :)

Or red-a-phobic, due to the absence of Fanny Flagg!

MATCH GAME = BEST GAME SHOW EVER!

I love it, watch it everyday on GSN. Defnitely getting this dvd. Gene was the best host on any show.

L Chabert Lover 10-14-06 04:45 PM

I knew it was too good to be true. :(

Amazon.com now states

Availability: THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE. If you would like to purchase this title, we recommend that you occasionally check this page to see if it has become available

RobCA 10-14-06 05:12 PM

It's still up for pre-order at DDD, and about $12 cheaper to boot.

BTW, TVShowsOnDVD.com has now posted a news item about the set.

Richard is on the back with Betty White.

I really only had room for 3 good size pictures on the front. Gene was a given, and I just couldn't separate Brett and Charles.

She's on the top spine in her red and yellow "Superman" shirt.

Match Game is the greatest. My girlfriend and I watch it constantly. I'll definitely be picking this up.
