    TGG seems to be branching out...I saw 20-episode collections of The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction in the Walmart discount bin today, and the sets were credited to TGG Direct.

    They have to be those public domain episodes that have been released everywhere left and right by various indie companies.

    Lois Nettleton is a highly underrated actress. I particularly loved her roles in Then Came Bronson, The Interns, The Outsider and the two episodes of Dr. Kildare she guest starred in. I seem to recall Lois was also in an episode of East Side / West side also. Of the shows that you can get officially, you can't go past her classic role in the TZ "Midnight Sun" and the 3 Route 66 episodes. Can't wait to pick up the Naked City set too!

    Yes, would also like to see Accidental family released but agree chances seem very slim. Also would love to see He and She, Love On A Rooftop, Second Hundred Years, The Good Guys and Occassional Wife. Not asking much, huh? :rolleyes:

    I have long been waiting for He and She myself. I'm a big Jack Cassidy fan. I don't know the rights situation with this one, but I'm guessing we won't be seeing it anytime soon.

    A very underrated beauty who had an uncanny ability to always look a decade younger than she actually was. I was shocked to learn she was 35 when she did her TZ episode!

    Also in two (maybe 3) "Fugitive" episodes. "Man On A String" is the best of the lot.

    Addendum about Lois Nettleton. Those who enjoy her work owe it to get the new "FBI" release. The episode "The Innocents" has one of her best performances I've ever seen.

    I just placed my pre-order. I actually have fond memories of this show. We'll see how it holds up. While no classic, it's not near as bad as it's reputation would indicate.

    Is that Sunny Tufts on the cover, with Jerry?

    Thanks for posting the cover art. This cover art is rather poor and not very appealing or eye catching. It looks like it has been photo shopped. It also says Miss Ann Sothern?

    Still I am really happy to see this and I will be buying this for sure.

    Wonder if they are including the unaired black and white pilot episode.

    That's how she was billed on the show originally.

    If the list of episodes included in this set is accurate at amazon, and the list of episodes that aired on Wikipedia is accurate, then this set will be missing an episode. Apparently that's why it's being called My Mother The Car The Series, instead of My Mother The Car The Complete Series.

    While I don't know for sure it appears to me that the Amazon listing is possibly incorrect. There were 30 episodes of the series. There are 5 disks with all disks but #2 having 6 episodes. The episode missing from that disk listing is "My Son, the Ventriloquist" which aired just before the very similar sounding episode, "My Son, The Judge." I can see how someone typing a list could easily skip that one. Plus you would think they'd put the disk with only 5 episodes as the *last* disk if a single episode were left off. Plus *all* episodes except the *last* one ("Desperate Minutes") are currently available for free streaming at IMDB (from Hulu). If it's available for free streaming you'd think it'll also be on the set.

    Plus the episode listing is in the "Editorial Review" section which is a regular spot for mis-information about many products.

    Possibly. Just seems strange to call it "The Series" instead of "The Complete Series" for a 1 season show.

    How could it be missing an episode? That is so lame! Is there a story behind this?

    I agree. I'll be buying MMTC, and I'd buy all of the other shows you mentioned if released - they are all on my list of shows I'd like to be released on DVD especially People's Choice.

    If TGG is going to bring out "Bachelor Father", they would have to reach a licensing deal with NBC Universal for that show, but Antenna TV is only airing, 120 out of a total of 157 episodes, because of lost or damaged videotape transfers, due to the great Universal fire in 2008 and will be moved to an early morning time slot on weekdays at 5 a.m. eastern/4 a.m. central to make way for "The Patty Duke Show".
