Murphy Brown Season 1 Question

Hello.. I was at Amazon today thinking of getting Season One of Murphy Brown. They have two Season One dvds listed. Both are "the Complete season one" but one is $4 more. Anyone know what the difference is? Thanks!

$4
Spoiler:
Seriously though, I think it might just be the cover. I don't think they added anything.

Like Bigjim said above me.....

The golden boarder w/the emmy winner reference was added in 2007 to probably catch the eye of some potential buyers who might have forgotten how popular the show once was or buyers who do blind buys of old tv shows because of there "critical acclaim" so to speak.

It was first released on dvd in 2005 (the blue striped box set) and as you can tell was not a hot seller at all, which is the main reason we have not gotten any additional seasons.

Lower-than-expected sales + Astronomical music costs = No more seasons likely to happen.

I'll give them credit for licensing all the music used for S1. Motown can't come cheap, and it was such a touchstone for much of the series, replacing it just wouldn't work. Look at WKRP for a disastrous example. I'm sure the fact that a significant chunk of the humor was very topical makes it a tough sell as well.

price difference for the releases is hillarious.

too bad about no future releases, i got season one when it came out (same day as night court if I remember) and enjoyed it.
