    I went to Best Buy today, but they still didn't have season 2. Hopefully, they'll put it on the shelves tomorrow. The returns people said all I need is my original receipt for season 1, and they will honor the deal. That's great, but it'll only work if they actually get it in stock. She said I could get the deal for 30 days, but I'm a little dubious about that. I imagine if they finally get season 2 half a month from now when that promotion is long since over, I'll be out of luck.

    Seasons 8 and 9? Yuck! This was a good show, but they kept it on way past its time...

    I plan to. I liked both seasons 8 and 9. There are some really good episodes in season 8, such as the Christmas retrospective and the season closer (granted, it was a reworking of a Bonanza script, but it was good). And, I even liked the Carters.

    I got the rebate and tax back, but they would not do 10% because it was thier own ad.

    it is an awful shame that the theme has been cut (except once a disc) and replaced
    with the generic version.
    I can well remember that title card announcing "In the town" over the last bars of the opening credits... and the cast members we would see in that ep...whether it was Miss Beadle, or Lars Hanson, or which of the Olesons.
    That ought to have been retained.

    Also (nitpick nitpick) although the theme song
    was essentially the same, several seasons used
    a different orchestral arrangement of the song,
    the first year was even in a different key.

    But, i'm probably the only person who this
    stuff would bother.
    LOL.

    I would have liked the opening credits to be on every episode aswell. So you get the opening theme before the first episode on each disc? is that how it works? I guess i will find out tomorrow when i buy these.

    There also seems to be conflicting reports from online etailers as to the actual street date of these sets. Dvdempire for instance says 7/29.

    I'm bothered by the lack of themes, also....especially since, as Jefferson said, I like noting how the theme (subtly) changes over the years. This way, the guest cast aren't even credited. You just have to know who Ernest Borgnine and Patricia Neal are....

    But, having had the sets for almost two weeks, I have been mostly thrilled with them. I haven't seen these episodes in years. And if all nine seasons are released, I'd buy 'em all. I hate the Shannen Doherty year, but there are about five episodes from that season I did really like.

    It is also interesting that this thread seems to be mainly men who are interested in little house. which is a good thing.

    I suppose I'll find out soon enough, but does anyone remember what carol is played throughout the first Christmas episode? I was thinking it was Good Christian Men Rejoice, but now I have reason to believe it's While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks. Either way, it goes a long way towards making it one of my favorite Christmas episodes of any show.

    I just hope they were able to clear the music rights. [​IMG]

    ^^

    I joke, in case you can't tell. [​IMG]

    BTW, I watched the Love of Johnny Johnson last night, and it was somewhat humorous that Pa played the Little House closing theme on his fiddle.

    I've got to say, for some reason, the quality really took a nosedive on the second episode on disc 2. Very dull, with a little jumpiness in some scenes. I just watched a little of the third episode, and it looked much the same.

    On the bright side, it looked about like it does in syndication. But, the five episodes preceding these looked much better.

    Best Buy had them in this week's ad. It seems to be today. We'll know for sure in a few hours when they open, I suppose.

    I was able to get them to give me the $20 off deal with just my receipt, so I'm in the catbird seat. Thanks, David. No way I would have thought to check for a deal on these if you hadn't given the heads up.

    well i picked up s1 and s2 at best buy. no luck finding the pilot by goldhil there. They did have the older dvd of the premiere movie/pilot by goodtimes. I wonder how the quality is between both versions. Does anyone think i'm allrite with the goodtimes one or should i wait and get the goldhil elsewhere ?
