    The release date of "1/1/10" sounds suspiciously like the sort of date one might use if they put a listing in a database and didn't have a real date to use, so they picked a fake date far away to fill in the blanks on a required field until a real date was available.

    Further evidence to suggest this isn't a date to believe in? 1/1/10 is a Friday; DVDs are released on Tuesdays.

    I'm not saying this isn't coming; it may very well be. But don't believe that particular date, okay?

    And DVDs don't tend to get released on legal holidays, either.

    I watched this show during its original run, and I loved it. I didn't understand the reasons for the controversy at the time (I was a tad too young); however, I did enjoy the premise of the show and I wish that it had run longer than it did. Ned Glass was a lot of fun in the series, and I've been a fan of Harold J. Stone's ever since his appearances (in different roles) on The Rifleman. [​IMG]

    I just hope it is coming. I'd love to revisit this series as an adult.

    I have been waiting a long time for this one. I hope it's sooner rather than later.

    Loved this show and can't wait to have it.
    It seems like it ought to be on amazon by now for pre-order, but it isn't. Interesting that on the Sony/Columbia site it doesn't come up with a regular search, at least it didn't for me.

    It's about time. They first announced this how many years ago? At least five but I think even longer. Now if Sony can get off their asses and start doing something with all of the rest of the great Screen Gems sitcoms.

    Just found out that this is going to be through the MOD program, not a regular release.

    Received my BLB set yesterday and the DVD's are DVD-R's (not pressed)...watched the pilot episode and was impressed by how great the video is - not sure if they remasted the series, but it looks really sharp. The menus are very basic - just the episode titles with a generic picture of television sets in the background (would have been nice if they used a cast photo, but no big deal). Happy to report that the original Screen Gems closing logo is at the end of the episode...all in all, a nice set.:P

    I will be picking this up soon. I remember wishing as a child that this show would have continued. I actually liked it more than All In the Family at the time, which I also watched faithfully.
    "Nevertheless, CBS executives decided to cancel the show in response to hate mail from viewers who objected to the inter-religious marriage depicted on the series. It was the highest-rated television program ever to be canceled after only one season."

    Received my copy yesterday. The video looks great. I had forgotten how prominent the culture clash is in the story lines that I have watched so far. It certainly demonstrates how much attitudes have changed since then. An enjoyable show and I am glad to see it again.
    The box is mistakenly labeled as 1.78:1.

    Yes, video is great and the show holds up and is still very funny. As for the attitudes part, I think now on TV everyone is portrayed as accepting of everything and anything while on BLB I think the attitudes are portrayed more realistically. It would be great if Sony now continued along this path and releases some of the other wonderful short run Screen Gems shows from that era.

    Love on a Rooftop comes to mind. I don't think it's a Screen Gems property, but I've been dying to see He & She released.

    Love on a Rooftop and He and She are both fabulous shows! Late 60's gems! Would love to see these released officially too.

    Yes wouldn't we all. You can add to that list Occasional Wife, The Good Life and Governor and JJ (not Screen Gems) as some other shows in that genre.

    Don't you mean The Good Guys? The Good Life was a BBC sitcom from 1975.
