    They took out the words of the theme song on Netflix instant watching is it the same on the DVD's? Kind of takes away from the spirit of the show.

    I don't know copyright or syndication laws that well, but I've seen a lot of shows with cut theme songs. I think the German DVDs have the original theme but the US ones use that instrumental. I've also seen this happen with shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

    The german DVDs are identical to the other dvds except for season 4, where the german one has unedited episodes while all other dvd sets feature seven edited episodes. The theme song, however, remains replaced on seasons 3-11.

    The missing theme song lyrics has irked me as well. Apparently the original theme, sung by Frank Sinatra, was not obtained by Sony so they are unable to use it any longer. It's a shame, but won't stop me from watching all 11 seasons (again)on Netflix.

    Nice, it was a delightfully random reply
