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.

  • Great deal

    I was a big fan of this show "back in the day". It was fun to sit down with my wife and watch it all over again. The packaging is a bit lacking - the disks are all stacked on a single spindle in a flimsy plastic carrier - but considering the cost of the set, they had to cut a few corners somewhere. Picture and audio quality are both very good. Overall, a 5 star purchase.

  • Very good purchase

    The purchase was well worth the money. The packaging was fine; adequate. I did not mind the DVDs stacked on a spindle rather then in individual sleeves or covers. For $$$ it was well worth it to get all four seasons of SOAP. We are totally happy with the purchase and are enjoying watching the show we liked in the 70's I would recommend this to everyone.

  • "Soap"

    I can't believe I found this! It was my dad's favorite sitcom even though it was a little racy for it's time. The price was right, it shipped on time and it made my dad's Christmas. Thanks, Overstock!!!
