    A reviewer

    i wish that they could treat this show like any other but they can't because this show was different from the others to begin with. i think that that is the reason they didn't put all of the seasons on dvd. this show was great. i miss it terribly. great show. great cast. wish that it was still on!!!!!!!

    Where is MY Providence

    I received this for my birthday and was so excited when I opened it. My excitment soon turned to disappointment when I realized that it was just a collection and not the whole first season. I don't understand why every other TV show seems to be out in complete seasons, but this one we just get a little taste. I had not seen the whole first season and was looking to fill in some blanks. The music was also disappointing. It was not the music from the show. I really, reallly loved this show. I guess it was too clean cut to have it available to its true fans. 7th Heaven is releasing its third season soon. Why not Providence?

    Where were MY best episodes?

    I purchased the 'Providence Collection' hoping to recollect some of my favorite episodes. What did I get... Episodes that NBC execs thought were great.(What do they know, they cancelled the best show on tv.) They should have checked on the Neilson rated stats before putting this together. The soundtrack has a strange song that I don't remember. What happened to the original opening music? I wanted interviews with ALL of the regulars on the show. I guess I was expecting too much. Why didn't they make a DVD of each season? Providence deserves a complete set of DVDs. Why should 'Sex in the City' have complete seasons DVDs when a family show like Providence only gets scraps. Very dissapointed. I WANT MORE of Providence with the original music.

    a must have! especially for New Englanders

    Quirky? you bet. Cheezy? absolutely. But what a great show to actually own! New Englanders can surely appreciate the authenticity of the location and how it was filmed in Providence so much of the time. The cast and crew were fabulous. So many touching episodes, quirky or not, will bring tears to your eyes.

    Missing episodes on 1st DVD

    This is a 4 disc set. I mistakenly thought it was the whole first season, however, it has a few shows from each year of the series. There are 12 shows total including the pilot show and the very last 2 hour finale of the series. One problem with my set, it could be on other sets too, is that the first disc is supposed to have 4 episodes, however, my disc only had 2 of the 4 shows. Also, the opening song, the one that goes- there are places, yada yada yada..... was replaced with some lame music that just doesn't match with those scenes. Also, I noticed that the background music they had on the shows, which was great, wasn't on any of these discs. I'm wondering if they were too cheap to pay to use the music or what? Merchants can be greedy that way. All in all it's probably a good set to get if you like the series. Personally, these aren't the shows that I would have picked as my favorites, but they'll do. Here are the titles and dates of the episodes: 1. The Pilot - 1999, 2. Home Again - 1999, 3. Tying the Not- 1999 (this was not on my disc), 4. The Letter - 1999(this also was not on my disc, 5. Don't Go Changing -2000 , 6. The Thanksgiving Story - 2000, 7. Falling - 2001, 8. Best Man - 2001, 9. Act Naturally - 2002, 10. A New Beginning - 2002, 11. Eye of the Storm- 2002, 12. The Eleventh Hour-2002
