I was looking for a gift for Father's Day and heard Soap came out on DVD. What a great gift, to revisit the fun and laughs of days gone by. My Dad is very happy with this product.

Five Stars for Series Two Stars for packaging

on 7/4/2008

If you are a fan of Soap you already know what a terrific series this is. What you need to know is that this is the cheapest dvd package deal you can get. There are no individual cases, all of the dvds are on a cheap plastic spindle with piece of cardboard to hold them in place. For the price, you might think you are coming out ahead, but in the long run, when your disks are all scratched and in need of replacement, you will wish that you had spent the money on he individual season sets.

Editors Note
Note Billy Crystal got his start as one of the first gay characters to appear on prime-time television in this once controversial series. As TV entertainment, SOAP was ahead of its time both creatively--functioning as a parody of the soap opera within the trappings of a prime-time sitcom--and topically--dealing with such issues as interracial marriage, gay parenting, marital infidelity, and impotence. Robert Urich, Richard Mulligan, Katherine Helmond (WHO'S THE BOSS), Robert Guillaume (SPORTS NIGHT), and a host of others round out the impressive ensemble cast of all four seasons and 85 episodes of this must-own for any enthusiast of progressive television. Fans that can't get enough of Guillaume's Benson on this series may be interested to know the character was spun-off into its own show, titled BENSON.
