I am 53, born in 1952. I am aware that Johnny Carson fans are generally old and probably the only ones viewing these DVD's. I was pleasantly surprised at the memories they brought back, by the genuine laughter born of shared experience and insight. Carson seemed to possess a genuine love for common folk and a disdain for pretentious stars. OK, Johnny was a huckster but the comedy came out of more innocent times and was based more on mutual respect than disrespect (I swear that's true, watch it to see). I would be the first to agree that less ethical humor was just as prevalent 40 years ago but it was clothed in and held back by the accepted code of decency and honor and TV censors. As you can see in these clips, Johnny nearly voids those boundaries....but stops short in good taste and in damn funny ways. Anyway, philosophy 101 aside, I laughed a lot and laughed a lot without feeling guilty. If anyone young reads this comment, please consider renting these DVD's. You may be pleasantly surprised at why millions watched Johnny, Ed and Doc above the tops of their blankets for years. good bye johnny
