Lower price, lower qualityMay 18, 2007
By A customer
I, too, have experienced the same problem with Disc 2 described by others. The quality looks choppy. If I had never seen the show before, I would have thought that it was filmed on low quality film, rather than videotape (which was used for Home Improvement for all eight seasons).
I also don't like the new packaging - as others have also mentioned.
But I discovered something else tonight. I was watching "I Was a teenage Taylor" - the Halloween episode, on Disc 1. There's an entire scene missing! It's the scene where Larry (the "Halloween Guy") shows up at Tool Time and talks with Tim and Al. That scene sets up the whole episode, and yet they've completely removed it from the DVD version! My 12-year-old son noticed it immediately, and to verify it, we got out the VHS tape of the episode we recorded off of TV in syndication. Sure enough. The scene had been excised from the DVD version. So far as I've seen, this is the only episode that isn't complete.
Too bad this 5-star show got such a 3-star DVD release. Don't get me wrong: I'm glad to have it, and I plan on completing my Home Improvement DVD set when the final two seasons are released. But I just find that my enthusiasm has been dampened because of these problems with the 6th season.

Season 6 Major DisappointmentJun 29, 2007
By R.H. King V
I own seasons 1-5 and am very happy with their quality and very COMPLETE episodes.
Season six was only in my collection for about 24 hours, I returned it to the retailer for a full refund!
"The Complete sixth Season"??? I think Mr. Tim Allen himself would be disappointed to learn that more than a few scenes had been omitted from many episodes in the sixth boxed set. All of the episodes had scenes that had been re-edited. A few to the extent that they fade to black between dialog! It's like a stand-up comedian telling the wind-up of a joke, then walking off the stage before delivering the punch-line.

Problem with Disc 2May 17, 2007
By M. Spencer
This is one of my favorite shows and the content is great. But, the video quality on disc 2 leaves something to be desired. Movement blurs and flickers. The video on the other two discs is normal. Disappointing.

Buyer BewareJul 20, 2007
By Wilcy Moore
I like this show well enough, but I've never been obsessed with it to the point that I would notice the first time something was missing. That said, I did notice some of these episodes seemed rather short. Then I found this review at sitcomsonline:
Buena Vista had been doing a rather decent job of releasing this series on DVD, but then they decided to release the sixth season in a cheaper package than the previous releases. Of course, packaging shouldn't immediately cause alarm, but then you get inside the package and discover that nearly half of the episodes have this bizarre video compression problem. Then, on top of that, they use syndicated versions for an unknown number of episodes? Does everybody know what time it is? Time to ditch this set!
Okay, so that's why some of the episodes seem short...because they are short.

Home Improvement dvd doesn't scanMay 09, 2010
By Stephen D. Blakely
this is the third Home Improvement 6th season I've bought and will have to return. there is something about the layering or scanning that prevents the player from reading the disc properly, and consequently, there are episodes i can't watch.
