Set contains 7 Syndicated episodes Aug 26, 2005
By M. J Krankka
Well Sony blew it with this set.7 episodes are the syndication episodes-Edited! Yes i'm planing on buying this set,because not all the episodes will be cut,just 7-I would not mind if it was 1 or 2 episodes,but 7!! that is dumb! 5 stars for the show,3 stars for this DVD release.
Update-go to tvshowsondvd.com to find out why Sony use Syndicated episodes on the 7 episodes.Also if you bought the 2 best of sets of Married...with Children keep it, as it contains the uncut episode of Raingirl,one of the episodes that gets the syndication treatment in the season 4 set.

They're really testing our paitence... Aug 31, 2005
By Big Joe '83
I thought there was no way they could top themselves with the release of the Third Season DVD by changing the opening and closing credits music. However, I've got to hand it to them, they managed to figure out a way to make us hate them even more... Syndicated episodes! Seven syndicated episodes that have been edited down and they include;
0402 - Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics
0403 - Buck Saves the Day
0410 - At the Zoo
0414 - Rock and Roll Girl
0416 - You Gotta Know when to Hold 'Em, Part 1
0421 - Peggy Made a Little Lamb
0419 - Rain Girl <- This episode is available uncut in on another DVD set.
Now Sony's excuse states that the uncut prints didn't have enough audio tracks to edit the theme so they had to go back to their syndicated episodes. But come on... It's 2005, how hard can it be just to slap some new music over the theme without changing the episode? Couldn't Sony have just used the intro and closing theme footage from the syndicated episodes and slap them on the uncut prints? What kind of operation are they running over at Sony? Someone's being lazy...
As for the episodes themselves, they're great. Five stars all the way. The series had already established themselves by season three and in this season the show goes off in an even more goofy tangent. Some highlights of the season concern Marcy's dead aunt's ashes, Al's shoe hotline, and Steve's stunt at a zoo. There's cameos by Milla Jovovich, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and an awesome appearance by the late, great Sam Kinison. So now I'm just left wondering, how will Sony top themselves for Season Five? Perhaps they could put a small SONY watermark on the bottom corner of the screen during the episodes.

Excellent Show, Horrible Rip-Off DVD set Aug 30, 2005
I love this show more than most people should love a show. I'm a hardcore fan with No Ma'am and Property of Polk High t-shirts and a framed Christina Applegate poster from 1990. I love this show and that is why I am so appalled at how seven of the episodes in this set (including the Christmas classic It's a Bundyful Life) are cut episodes, aka syndicated cut shows!
SHAME ON SONY!
I am outraged that this set claims to be the complete fourth season when it is edited. Edited and complete are f**king antonyms!!!! This is flagrant false advertising!
Sure, it's good that the set didn't get the royal flush job that ROSEANNE did, a set that contains nothing but syndication butchered episodes, but nonetheless this is a let down. The other MWC sets, though seriously lacking in special features, at least contained the complete seasons (minus the opening theme on set three). Even the insipid little "Most Outrageous Episodes" discs contained uncut episodes, some of which re-appear on the season four set in cut form. What the heck is that?!?!?!
It's been explained that since Sony can no longer afford/are to cheap to afford to the rights to the "Love and Marriage" song, they've had to dig deep to search for various audio tracks, including dialouge tracks from the originals that were lost. They did, however, have the cut reruns tracks, so they used them. Rather than piece together a mix with new music, they just left the scenes out. They didn't even include them as rough deleted scenes in a bonus section. Well this is a stretch for me. How come the episode "Raingirl" is in uncut form on the "Most Outrageous" disc two but is cut on the season set? And "Love and Marriage" isn't playing in the course of the episode either, so that isn't the problem. Also, FOX aired the uncut versions of "It's a Bundyful Life part I and II" around Christmas of 2003. So apparently the tracks were not "lost" a year and a half ago. Sounds to me like Sony is making bad excuses for a job poorly done.
Bottomline is: this is bull!
While the set is still worth getting because this is likely the best season the show ever had, I am sickened by this current trend of murdering classic shows like this and cheapening the whole idea of what DVD entertainment is about. If things don't change DVD will go back to the boring format of featureless, frilless blah which was VHS.
To add injury to insult, the discs are also of poor quality, much poorer than the other sets, and even have digital skips, little lines that appear and sudden, though slight, blotches. These are very light smudges in the image, but they are there, and this is shameful.
Sony needs to redem themselves with the release of season five, otherwise I'm done buying these sets, and anything else from sony entertianment, as any self-respecting consumer would be.

7 of these episodes are syndicated versions Aug 29, 2005
By S. Frank
I was getting ready to place an order for this season set, but fortunately I found a review that informed me that 7 of the episodes are the shorter syndicated versions with missing footage. I can watch this for free on cable TV. I would no more buy a DVD set with missing footage than I would buy a book with missing pages.
