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

Greatest show ever, but...OK, having these on my iPod is great, and I also bought the DVD's last spring. Admittedly, this is my favorite show of all time. It appears that many others feel the same way based on the reviews here. But I take serious issue with the versions featured digitally, and think all of you who write "hey, it's not about the music" are missing a few key points. Many of the songs used originally were integral to scenes. ("Hot Blooded" in "A Date With Jennifer" comes to mind, and "Dogs" by Pink Floyd in "Turkeys Away" does too.) In some cases, entire scenes have been cut from this release where music can't be replaced! Even worse, some dialogue has been re-dubbed by different actors. This is a travesty of the highest order, and shows how little regard anyone at FOX has for the original show. Imagine "Goodfellas" with stock, schlocky music. It'd change the movie, wouldn't it? What if they re-dubbed "A Hard Days's Night" with non-Beatles music? What happens to future seasons? I recall music playing throughout the "Bomb Threat" 2-parter when Johnny & Venus are at the transmitter. Do they pay for that music, or cut the scenes? Or the episode where Carlson reads most of John Lennon's lyrics to "Imagine" for a censor-crazy Pastor? Can they use those? Look, I want to make this clear: I give the show 5 stars, more if I could. But what we're seeing here, with FOX cutting music, scenes, and re-dubbing lines, sets a dangerous example of how a company can somehow erase a show's history. For WKRP to live on and be recognized by future generations as brilliant, it needs to be the the original WKRP. Not these brutally sliced and diced versions. This is an insult to Hugh Wilson (who, allegedly approved these!), and the cast & creators of this great show. A travesty..Score: 1/5

One of the all-time greats, but...Do not get this. i've seen these and they are not good. i mean, sure, this is a comedy about great characters, and it's still as hilarious and heart-felt as ever, but it's also a show about music and radio. and they've almost completely butchered that brilliant premise by removing the music pretty much entirely. it's just too sad to watch. i'm hoping for someone like shout! factory to come along and save this classic show like they did with freaks and geeks, and publish this the way it HAS to be seen-- with ALL of it's original music intact (and the same goes for northern exposure!). don't give anyone your money for putting out a truly great show in a form that's a shell of it's former self..Score: 1/5

A Pale Shadow...Take it from a child of the 70's and a Cincinnati resident, the music is absolutely integral to the show. Removing it degrades the overall experience greatly. WKRP was a source of pride for me as a kid. I guess I will have to live off of fond memories until I am able to buy the shows in their original uncut form with music included..Score: 1/5

Turkeys AwayI first saw Turkeys Away when it was released YEARS ago during the regular series season. I saw it a couple of times after that on replays. It is the single funniest episode I have ever seen for any TV program. I watched it again the other day when I purchased it and was crying by the time it was over..Score: 5/5

My mom loves it, ergo, I love it.Wish they’d put all 4 seasons, instead of just the one..Score: 5/5

Turkey's Away is One of the Best Sitcom Episodes of All TimeI am an animal lover, but with all due respect to turkeys everywhere, this episode is one of the funniest comedy pieces in TV history, especially if you know the show's characters well. In fact, it's one of the few episodes of this almost-great TV series in which every character has a line written perfectly for them -- most of them funny. And the overall concept for this episode ranks up there with the "Chuckles Bites the Dust" episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. This is definitely one you should buy..Score: 5/5

Missing segments and generic musicDon’t waste your time with this edition, it’s missing the original music which was often part of the jokes. Likewise, entire segments are missing. Why do I know this? Because I bought the Shout factory DVD which has restored what was missing..Score: 1/5

So happy to have the gang backJust finished watching "Pilot, Pt. 1" and boy is it great to have the WKRP gang back. Because of this music rights fee issue show hasn't been in reruns in the LA market since the early 90s (wore out my old VHS tapes years ago) and I'd forgotten how much I missed it. The outstanding ( and groundbreaking) writing, the wonderful ensemble play among actors who relished their roles and simple direction made me laugh all over again, especially since the episodes are original broadcast complete. Yes, the original music has been replaced by awful noise but, in the long run, you're going to enjoy the comedy a lot more than you're going to miss 15 seconds of Grover Washington or 20 seconds of Pink Floyd. So lets order up these episodes so the next two seasons will be released. Addendum after viewing one of the episodes. At the beginning of the "Bailey's Show" episode Venus puts on a record and, low and behold, it is not the crappy replacement music but the actual song "Boogie Oogie Oogie" by Taste of Honey. Was this a slip up or will there be other instances of the original music showing up? Stay Ituned..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: "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

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

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.

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.
