Freaks and Geeks complete series bluray is available for $19.95 + $4 shipping. Shipping is $4 for the whole order, so finding other items on sale makes it an even slicker deal.
This set contains only the 2016 4-disc widescreen version.

I just noticed I typoed when I wrote "Don't buy this one because it's the uncut version and not the complete Special Edition". I meant to type "because it's not the uncut version and not the complete edition".

Without quoting the other comments, and remembering what I just read in a few reviews, it sounds like what HB is selling for $20 is 1/3rd of the Shout Factory Complete Edition. Reviews say that comes in 3 separate cases inside the main case. 4 discs for the widescreen version, 4 discs for the full screen (probably open matte) version, and 1 bonus disc of extras. So apparently the 4 widescreen discs are sold separately even though I couldn't find a listing for it on Amazon. Like you said, I think there was an older edited Bluray set which seems to have disappeared off the Internet.

While I'd say the complete 9-disc SF Bluray edition might be worth up to $20, the 4-disc widescreen only SF Bluray edition should be more like $10. If the full screen version is indeed open matte, I might choose to watch that instead. It would also be nice to have all the extras. So I think I need the complete edition which this is not.

I believe a couple of the reviews went into a lot of detail on the framing, but I'll have to research it better when I see a better price on this set. What I didn't spot in any of the reviews is what I asked before and what pippypoppy asked again:

I hope someone familiar with the series can answer if the original music is intact and if the episodes are uncut.

I think part of the reason I thought they might be cut is some wording about massive amounts of footage being filmed and cut, so I'm not sure what are "the definitive cuts" and if these match.

BTW, I'll mention I only watched the first 2 episodes on this before Netflix took it away. I could see it had enough potential that I wanted to own it, but not enough to pay $30-$60 or whatever the 9-disc set sells for. The 4 disc widescreen set is worth maybe $10 or the 9 disc set maybe $20 to me. So I'll keep on waiting.
As far as the original music, it's going to be hard to find that out based on reviews (at least on amazon) because they combine all reviews for a product, and you don't always know which version of the product they purchased and reviewed.
I find it kind of hard to believe that the older version would be uncut w/ all the music, and the newer collectors edition with a 4k scan wouldn't. It's possible, but wouldn't make a lot of sense.

This series was on Netflix, now it's gone and not on iTunes to purchase. Who knows how to get this digitally (legal means)?

I remember seeing one single add for this show and wanting to see it so bad. Then for the life of me could not find it on TV. Did it compete with TGIF or something? I know I was hooked on that block. Or was it one of those shows that was timed just right that the mountain time zone couldn't watch it because they where still in school?

I wondered the same thing and couldn't find it. However, there looks to be a LOT of good bonus materials with the discs that you surely wouldn't get with a digital option even if it were available. I kinda hate watching discs at this point, but I went ahead and bought this because I'd love to see the commentaries and maybe some of the other things.

This Amazon one is better because it's the complete 9 disc set for $25 rather than the 4 disc set from HB. Unfortunately $20 was my top price for the 9 disc set, so I don't know if I can get myself to pull the trigger for $5 more.

However, given that Kohl's accepts Amazon returns (which I rarely do), if the price drops further I should have the return option I didn't use to have (i.e. return shipping would cost too much). I think Amazon holiday returns go to 1/31/2020. At least there's 5% Discover rewards on Amazon.

Thanks. With it being different I went ahead and posted it separately. More people will see it, plus it should go fp
