Home release[edit]

On September 7, 2010 Lionsgate Home Entertainment released Season One of Less Than Perfect on DVD. The 4-disc set contains all 22 episodes uncut and for the first time available in their original widescreen format and a complete lack of special features. However, the episodes do not run in the order they premiered on television, but rather in the order of their production code, which may have been the true order they should have been released (for example, Charlie is introduced as a new character in Episode 10/Production Code 218, having already made an appearance in Episode 9/Production Code 221). However, due to an error with episode 19 "Oh Papa" for some reason having the same production code as episode 12 "Claude's Got a Secret" it was placed last on the DVD, after the correct season finale "The Umbrella". "Oh Papa" should occur sometime after the "Valentine's Day" episode.

The episodes on the DVD appear in the following order:

  • 1.1 "Pilot" (disc 1)
  • 1.4 "Queen of England" (disc 1)
  • 1.2 "Ice Cream with Lydia" (disc 1)
  • 1.3 "Claude the Liar" (disc 1)
  • 1.6 "The Pole" (disc 1)
  • 1.5 "The Vacation" (disc 1)
  • 1.11 "A Claude Casey Production" (disc 2)
  • 1.7 "Future Shock" (disc 2)
  • 1.10 "One Office Part Too Many" (disc 2)
  • 1.8 "Meet the Folks" (disc 2)
  • 1.13 "Telephone" (disc 2)
  • 1.9 "Claude the Heartbreaker" (disc 2)
  • 1.18 "The New Guy" (disc 3)
  • 1.12 "Claude's Got a Secret" (disc 3)
  • 1.20 "A Little Love for Lydia" (disc 3)
  • 1.14 "High Maintenance" (disc 3)
  • 1.15 "Valentine's Day" (disc 3)
  • 1.17 "Picture Perfect Party" (disc 3)
  • 1.16 "Breaking Up" (disc 4)
  • 1.21 "Save the Squirrel, But Bet the Over/Under" (disc 4)
  • 1.22 "The Umbrella" (season finale - disc 4)
  • 1.19 "Oh Papa" (disc 4)

At present, there is no news as to whether seasons two, three and four will receive DVD releases in the near future, this is possible due to poor sales of the first season.
