The humor in the characters on this show KILLS me!The people that made the characters on this show really made this a funny show at the time, but it is even more funny, even hilarious today! Thank you I-Tunes for purchasing another classic. From the humor of Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap, to the stiff, nerdy old-fashioned humor of Herb Tarleck and Les Nessman, this show is great! Not to mention the lovely Jennifer and her very unboss-like boss, Mr. Carlson. These episodes are classics and to be tresured!.Score: 4/5

Too Bad About The MusicI just was listening to an interview with Tim Reid and Tom Dreesen and WKRP was mentioned. Tim mentioned what a shame it was that the show had to be re-edited with fake music because of royalties and licensing fees. That's too bad. I would have purchased the whole season if it was the actual show rather than an interpretation of it. I can relate with many of the posts here. It was a fantastic show and AOR radio was real back then. As a teenager in the '70s in Richmond Va., there was a show on late Saturday nights called "Mellow Madness". The DJ's name was "Ty" and he was very much like Venus Fly Trap. Well, at least talking about the show brings back fond memories. Too bad I won't see it. Anyone know where there are original versions of WKRP to be found?.Score: 1/5

Bring back the original music, and I'll buy the seasonThis was one of my favorite shows growing up. So it pains me to download an episode or two and see that a) some scenes are edited (censored is more like it) b) all the original music is gone. It's like watching road runner cartoons with all the coyote crashing parts censored out (oh wait, that happened... and it sucked). You would think that someone, somewhere, namely whoever's making the bulk of the $2/per $34/season for this show would somehow negotiate the deal required to release this as the true original series, complete with music. This kind of stuff is just absolutely ridiculous. This is so sad. WKRP was such awesome escapism television, and greed and stupid licensing laws (and the lack of whil by the copyright holders to pay the new licensing fees) have ruined this show. I'll download this and all other available seasons once it's truly the original, uncut, uncensored series. Till then, pass..Score: 1/5

Incomplete and not the sameWithout the music, this show is incomplete. The music was the show. The music of the time defined the show and the cast of characters. Because FOX is too cheap to pay the license fees, we get a second rate T.V. show. I will not buy another episode until the originals, with the original music, are offered..Score: 1/5

Original Music...No problemWKRP is one of my all time fave shows. I saw it in it's original run wayback when and now that I've watched a few episodes, I have no complaint about the original music being replaced by 'canned' music. It wasn't the music that sold the show, it's the acting, personalitites and situations that made this show funny. Don't be put off by substituted music, WKRP is still Boss..Score: 4/5

Thanks for the heads-up about the music...Hitting the post on James Taylor's Smiling Face as a DJ was one of my life's minor ambitions because I saw Johnny Fever do it on WKRP when I was about 10 years old. This was one of the best sitcoms ever made and to release an edited version without the original music means you are releasing something that I would never purchase. I am dissappointed because I would have downloaded every episode the minute they were released. Release them unedited and you've got another happy customer..Score: 1/5

GoodMan I miss reruns of this sitcom. I had a huge crush on Jan Smithers aka Bailey..Score: 3/5

Agreed!!! I won't buy without the music and original cast dialogue.The original series was fantastic!!!! This is just sad! Shame on you fox for ruining this show..Score: 1/5

Was excited about buy until I read the reviews..To not present a show (or any form of art) as it was meant to be shown is a travesty. Will not be buying..Score: 1/5

As god as my witness.....I thought turkeys could fly! What a great series. Looking forward to more WKRP on itunes!!.Score: 5/5

Classic show, but missing the classic rockThis release of one of the funniest sitcoms of all time is let down by the fact that they couldn't get the rights to the classic rock tunes used in each episode when the show first aired. Those classic tunes were integral to the shows comedy and timing and unfortunately the generic music that has replaced them just doesn't cut it..Score: 3/5

WKRP in Cincinnati: "Commercial Break"I was very disappointed with the quality of the video; not remastered at all as one would've expected. Addtionally, there are portions of the original episode which have been edited. I remember wll the original series well, and was quite annoyed to see that the episode I purchased was not provided in its entirety..Score: 1/5

FantasticI remember watching this show as a kid, I loved it then and I love it now. I just finished watching 4 episodes back to back. Itunes please bring back more old shows!!.Score: 5/5

A travesty to a great sitcomThis show was about raw rock & roll. Music was central to making this a brilliant sitcom. The music industry wanted to renegotiate their contract for digital rights and thus greed destroys a classic. The great cast still shines but what's the point when generic alt rock is playing in the background? I only bought the pilot (thank god) but I do wonder what they will do for the John Lennon Imagine episode. This is worse than Lucas inserting crappy digital dinosaurs into star wars claiming he wanted them there originally! Please please redo with original music. Screw the greed and come to an agreement to restore the original wonderful, if dated, classic I love..Score: 1/5

WKRP In Cincinnati (Season 1) Full Episodes

When a Cincinnati radio station switches from sedate music to top-40 rock 'n' roll, its staff of oddball characters is forced to switch gears quickly. New programming director Andy Travis brings in a new DJ named Venus Flytrap to work with the station's burned-out veteran, Dr. Johnny Fever. Neurotic newsman Les Nessman, eager beaver Bailey Quarters, sleazy salesman Herb Tarlek, blonde bombshell Jennifer Marlowe, who serves as the station's ultra-capable receptionist, and station manager Arthur Carlson, whose domineering mother owns WKRP, round out the eccentric bunch.
