Embarrassing Treasures; you should skate on over there when you get a free moment and check out that site’s Family Affair Friday (it’s pretty hooty and not nearly as longwinded as my Mayberry wrap-ups).
TVShowsOnDVD.com: Shout! Factory has announced that even before the fourth season of TDOY fave
is due out on the streets this December 18th, season five of the 1976-83 Jack
Klugman starrer is already in the pipeline, and will be released on March 19th. A 6-DVD set (containing all 22 episodes)
priced at $39.97 SRP; I’m really glad that Shout is continuing this series, and
am hoping they go all the way with this one without sticking it in their Select
program (or even worse, offering the remaining seasons in a box set without the
option to purchase seasons separately). Quincy, M.E.
a release date of March 26th and a SRP of $27.98 for a 4-DVD collection that will contain all twenty-six episodes of the program that began syndication in this country in 1969 (though originally airing on the Japanese television network NET in 1967-68).
be released to DVD also on March 26th…nearly nine years after its first season release in 2004. Shout! Factory has licensed this series for DVD distribution from Warner, and a 5-disc set containing all 22 shows from the series’ second year will be made available at a price of $29.93 SRP. I had the first season set of the show many, many moons ago (probably found it on sale somewhere…later hawked it on eBay) and though every once in a while they’d have a sketch on there that would make me laugh I can’t honestly call myself a devotee. But it’s where I first proclaimed my love for Nicole Sullivan (which later continued on The King of Queens) and Debra Wilson (I refuse to drink Sierra Mist, but her and Nicole’s commercials for it used to make me smile)…and for some odd reason, the sketch with Will Sasso as Kenny Rogers hosting Jackass always left me in hysterics. (I won’t try to explain it if you don’t judge me.)
