I bought the Muppet Show Season One yesterday
(note: you muppet-haters can take that off my wishlist, so now the price of getting rid of me is ~ $2,225 by Feb 14th)
The episodes are great, especially earlier stuff where the characters have the wrong voices (some of them swap voices later on) (and some of the puppets are pretty crude, like Gonzo and Ms Piggy). Altogether good stuff. 24 episodes. Thumbs up!
Now if they'd just hurry up and come out with Seasons 2-?
The only gripe I have is that the fold out DVD case they come in has the discs overlapping. Two on one fold and two on another. The center-grips are spaced so as to keep some space between the disc surfaces but seeing them overlapping sets my teeth on edge every time. Every DVD in my collection (movies and games) is FLAWLESS. Overlapping is not cool. :P

Do what I do - cut a piece of paper to fit between the folds so the DVDs don't touch.
BTW: Animal rocks. Eat Drums! Eat Drums!

No no.. it's not that they touch top-to-top, that doesn't bother me.
What I mean is, there's a recessed spot in the top of each "page" to hold one disc, and then overlapping that (like a fat crescent moon) is a second recessed spot a little lower down to hold the second disc on that page, for a total of four discs. So one disc is actually on top of the other for 1/3 - 1/2 of its width.
That's the best I can describe without pictures. :-)

I bought that when it came out awhile back... My wife and I sat and watched it all the way through in one sitting. Quite awesome.

I thought it was funny how Skooter was in the show for 4 episodes before being "introduced" as the theatre owner's uncle in episode 5 as if he had just gotten there. I hadn't noticed that before. :)

Mske a backup copy?

Too much of a pain in the ass. I just take care of the discs.
I'll probably end up getting generic cases and printing covers.
