Oh, I forgot to add something to my initial post. I know a certain person in Texas who will be jumping for joy over this announcement!

You better believe it Posted Image This one's been a complete blind-buy with the S1 set and it's turned out to be one of the best ones I've seen. Great news!

Count me in for one ticket on the Excited Train! May is looking like quite the pleasantly overwhelming month with Donna Reed Show Season 2, the final season of That Girl and the complete series of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

Welcome to the club, Michael.

Still can't believe more people aren't excited about this. Perhaps some of our regulars (Vintage fan regulars, I mean) just haven't been around the last couple of days. But this is great news that should make any 50's TV fan very happy. The Donna Reed Show was a classic!

Gary "hope AAA can keep this series coming" O.

I certainly qualify as one of the "vintage fan regulars." It's just that Donna Reed wasn't one of my all-time favorites. I'm excited about this, but it's a kind of quiet excitement, not the kind where I do cartwheels down the sidewalk.

When it comes to Screen Gems series, I was hoping more for "Dennis the Menace" and the rest of "Hazel," but I do share your happiness that we're getting more Donna Reed; it's just that I'm merely happy, not ecstatic.

Thanks for the heads up on this, Gary! Donna's fans will be quite happy. I remember watching this series on Nick @ Nite and enjoying it quite a bit. Well, enjoying Shelley Fabares anyway Posted Image

Perhaps the subdued reaction is simply a reflection of a lousy economy preventing many consumers from getting releases they normally would buy in addition to the fact that consumers have gotten gun shy about buying classic releases until the extent of modifications (syndication prints, music changes, etc.) becomes known. When dealing with these independent labels the issue of print quality also becomes a concern.

At any rate it is good to see this vintage series getting an additional release.

Good points, Steve about the slowdown of posts on this one. I have to start watching TV/DVD buys like most everyone else these days.

If the print Q matches the S1's, I'll be happy.

I think this was one title I already took for granted getting it's next release because of the insert in the S1 packaging, so that's why the impact of this news isn't as great as it would have without the earlier promise that S2 was going to be a definite go.

Hello from Dallas Posted Image This show has really been a great blind-buy for me. I rank this one way up on my sitcom list. I remember reading your posts during the early days of the Donna Reed threads and thinking "Is this really as good as Elena says?" I have to say, YES Posted Image

The show reminds me of my older sister and me when we were growing up. We NEVER argued Posted Image I remember sis was an early Beatles fanatic and I hated the Beatles Posted Image I "wised up" a couple of years later and became a fan but only of the early Beatles tunes.

Watching this show reminds me of the role that Donna Reed played in "From Here to Eternity" ('53) which is one of my all-time favorite 50's movies. She had many great roles, "It's a Wonderful Life", Green Dolphin St"....

My thinking was similar to Jack's, I thought Season 2 was already a go. Now watch my enthusiasm when they announce season 3!

It was, and I knew that too. But I never take anything for granted at this stage when it comes to the dvd market. There have been an awful lot of unofficial announcements, even from the studios themselves, that have never come to fruition.

I will be glad when Amazon has this up for pre-order. It has FKB Season 3, but not this yet.

Count me as enthused. True, I have the first two seasons on videotape from old Nick-and-Night recordings (which are now over twenty years old, yipe!), but I haven't viewed them in eons, and this upgrade will be extremely welcome. I'll probably be inclined to show even more enthusiasm towards any season-3 and beyond releases, as those episodes I entirely lack.

I'm looking forward to it. Now if only they could get The Patty Duke Show out.

Ughhh...

Looks like we have a significant push back on the release date, according to Gord & Dave's site. 2 and 1/2 months worth of a push back. The new date for this second season set is now July 21st. Wow! That's a tad depressing, and I hope it's not bad news for the series overall.
