    Oh, Granny, all the way. I have no use for the Mrs. Drysdales of this world. Granny would make a wonderful Possum Queen.

    "Here's your choice for Possum Queen: Granny! Granny!
    She don't drive no limousine. Granny all the way!"

    And, mind you, I haven't seen this episode since probably 1970. I guess I really do need to get out more.

    Final thoughts yes. Not trying to be a moderator. I had made an off hand comment on how the thread got off season 4 with an Lol thinking it was funny. Evidently it was not thought if as being an off handed comment and I felt a little abused by someone telling me to go some else. I was going to let it all pass and then again someone telling me what I can say and not and I was offended as guess as much as you feel I offended you. There are way more important things going on than season 4-8 of TBH, like the Saints - Cardinals game. So let's just all go sit by the cement pond and have some of Grannies medicine.

    They did lose buddy, They did. Granny did some of her black magic and gave Drew Bree's some of her medicine so all is will on Bayou land.

    No sweat as we just want to get this back on topic and just try and promote the heck out of the show so the more sales it can garner for Season 4, the better the chances we have of seeing a few more seasons come out for this show from CBS HE, as it's just been too long for us in waiting for a new season release of this show to transpire. Healthy discussion of a show we're all so passionate about is a good thing.

    Ron, I think you may need to correct your post here as I think you meant to say Season 8 of TBH and not PJ, as that only lasted 6 seasons.

    According to the Wikipedia entry, PJ lasted seven seasons, 1963-1970. Anyway, I think Ron meant when the Hillbillies went to PJ in the 8th season of the Beverly Hillbillies.

    Nothing to correct. When I said "they" I meant The Beverly Hillbillies.

    What really hurts Season 4 -- and all the other color seasons -- is the loss of location shooting of the mansion.

    Seasons 1-3 made extensive use of the Kirkeby Mansion in Bel Air -- you'd see lots of shots of driving in and out of the gate, the lawn, etc. Some episodes actually filmed scenes with dialogue there.

    According to Paul Henning, right before filming for Season 4 began TV Guide published the address of the real mansion. It was immediately besieged with tourists, and the owner stopped allowing the show to film there.

    Even the closing credits had to be rethought -- instead of seeing the mansion and then the Clampetts walking out the front door, all you see is the door.

    It's a real shame. Would've been great to see shots like this.

    I'm just happy that after almost 4.5 years of waiting, we're finally going to get a new season of this show and in color for the first time, where the show really starts to peak.

    Sometime over the past week WM put free shipping to your home on TBH S4 and PJ S3 so I went ahead and ordered both. I was going to "cheap out" and just get them at the store (I'm about a quarter mile from a WM daily) but with free home shipping I couldn't resist. :D

    Thanks! Ordered mine, too. I'd rather have them deliver to my home than having to drive to my nearest Walmart

    Sounds like what I might do, too. On the other hand, I have classes that day and I might be able to drive down to my local Wally World in between IF they have it out already.

    Okay I decided to buy into this title. I see Season 2,3 and now 4 are being released. My question is do you have to buy The Ultimate Collection parts 1 and 2 to have all of the season 1 episodes? Thanks for your comments.

    My understanding is that you do as well as the Christmas DVD.
