Looks like Warner is releasing the first season in April. Here's the story from tvshowsondvd.com: http://www.tvshowson...s-Release/16393

I recall they had an issue with some of the master-elements which held this up. How long before the show is back on the air on INSP GM and HALLMARK?

Did they explain what those master issues were?

This is great news. Even though the first season only had nine episodes, it is great to finally see a DVD release after all these years.

I'm very happy this is coming, but the suggest retail price is high for 9 episodes.

I just found out that this will most likely be a butchered-beyond-belief release. Look at what sjbradford has to say: http://www.imdb.com/...10201116#latest

I think it's a bit too early to be specualting about the use of syndicated versions of the episodes in this release.

Amazon.ca already has a pre-order page and it's $17.99; still no sign of it yet at Amazon.com.

I think he meant because that imdb poster pointed out that the amazon download versions were indeed the cut, syndicated versions. Can anyone confirm this? *sigh* I knew this was all too good to be true... :(

I don't know about "butchered beyond belief" - but I checked the listings for the Amazon download versions, the listed episode run times seem pretty intact for the late 70s: 1. 48 minutes 2. 50 3. 50 4. 50 5. 50 6. 49 7. 49 8. 50 9. 49 I suppose it's possible some seconds are missing from episodes 1, 6, 7, and 9 if they were all originally 50 minutes. But I don't know for sure that is the case.

Um, I'm not referring to syndicated versions. I'm referring to what sjbradford said. He said that for some reason, they decided to go back and re-edit some of the episodes due to the original mother's death. And it was during the original ABC run.

So you're saying the syndicated versions reverted to the originals, with the original mother's phone scenes edited back in? You're talking about two different things: sjbradford said that the amazon downloads are the versions without the mother. We're trying to determine which versions will exist on the dvds.

I think that since Joan is pictured on the cover of the set (at least the small version that was posted on tvshowsondvd.com), Joan will be in the episodes. Seems logical to me. Also, since the show hasn't changed hands numerous times (like the MTM catalog), then the chances of finding the complete original broadcast versions is pretty good. I believe the show was originally a Lorimar production and Lorimar was a part of Warner. I'm not sure about that, but I seem to recall the show as being Lorimar.

I always saw the versions with Hyland, even in syndication. That was years ago, so I couldn't comment on how they have been handled since. But the story of her passing in real life (especially connected with John Travolta) is such an important part of the history of the show, I can't imagine them not including the original versions....but I've seen weirder.

i am so happy that EIE is coming to DVD and gives me hope that Family Tiess/Growing Pains will be completed. I liked to see the hogan family released as well! The family values sitcoms are missed on today's generation of kids. I was a bar last weekend talking to gal, who was born in like 1990 and she does not remember growing pains, especially Leonardo dicapria got his start on growing pains!

I think...think...think... if the first year episodes are trimmed then forget about season 2. I believe people are fed up with cut minutes for any reason. Especially $18.00 worth for 9 spisodes. But let's not kill the messanger just yet. One's entire life is a rumor. Allow the finished product to display itself then throw all the stones you wish with the understanding that someone may throw one back.

In case anyone is interested while waiting for the DVD release, NBC did a "Great TV Families Reunited" series at some point, and featured most of the Bradford clan: http://today.msnbc.m...641886#35641886 A few other reunions are on the site as well after the forced ad....
