That's unfortunate, because at TVShowsOnDVD.com we NEVER cover items which are available only at one brick-and-mortar retailer, at the expense of all the others.  If this title becomes available for general release later on, then we will cover it.

This is one of those policies of yours, which I have never understood.  What's the total number of DVD releases this has affected?  It's got to be less than 20.  The only reason I can think of is that you don't want to offend advertisers, which I guess makes sense given you get a lot of advertising from Amazon, and the exclusivity policy doesn't seem to apply to Amazon.  Still, given that most exclusives show up at Amazon from third party sellers, I'm not sure that they would care.

So happy we're finally getting the Gunilla/Lori episodes on DVD.  Roll on more "Beverly Hillbillies" as well!

Real simple question. Why????? There is no legitimate reason for this. Seeing as how Ronald, who is reported to be the owner, reported the press release. I'm not fully understanding of what's happening. I truly feel clarification is in or order. Something makes no sense here.

David, can you tell me why this policy exists? Walmart is not an exclusive club and is accessible to anyone; to me, Time-Life has a more prohibitive purchase scheme, and I was under the impression you report their initial offerings. Also, your website title is TV shows on DVD, not TV shows on DVD available through mass purchase ... Thanks.

Wal-Mart doesn't ship internationally, so therefore it IS exclusive.

And neither does Warner Archive, who won't even consider shipping to Canada, but their releases get reported.

Perhaps they can report the release as any other news item, but avoid specifically mentioning who the retailer is.  This way fans who otherwise may not be aware of the release will learn that it is indeed coming after several years, and can then seek out the retailer info elsewhere.  Is that an option?

Ron, who is that in your avatar? Meredith MacRae?

 

I also notice at Sitcoms Online, you have a picture of someone in TV Magazine in your avatar. Is it also Meredith as well?

 

Sorry it took so long to respond, but I've been away from my computer all day, but she is Inger Stevens as other members have already confirmed.

Her show, The Farmer's Daughter, premiered the same year as Petticoat Junction so it is also celebrating its 50th anniversary!

Let me be clear. I absolutely detest Wal-Mart. I'd rather saw off my own foot than shop there, but I will definitely be front and center on day one for these two releases.

I think Walmart is a great place to shop for lots of things.

Any particular reason for that hate?

Excessive crowds, rude customers stepping all over you, and huge check out lines. The lower prices aren't worth having my social anxiety disorder go out of control. I'll stick with on-line shopping or Target, thanks.

Not exactly the place to discuss this topic, but I also have a lot of disdain for Wal-Mart for putting all the mom and pop stores and smaller retailers out of business only to hire their employees and then pay them squat wages. IMO other than Target and Best Buy (which probably will be bankrupt soon), Wal-Mart has become a virtual monopoly of the retail goods industry, not accounting for on-line retailers like Amazon. People don't want to admit it because of the prices, but, to me Wal-Mart is a virtual anti-trust nightmare

Just to put this back on topic, I have to say I do most of my shopping at Drucker's store.  But Sam's bluray selection is pretty slim.

Great Laser Disc section, though.

Yes, but does he have to keep them right next to the pickel barrel?

I didn't think he was on Petticoat Junction, just Green Acres? It's been so long since I've watched PJ that I could be wrong.

While Hainey was primarily a Green Acres character, he did make at least 1 or 2 crossover appearances. I seem to remember one later PJ episode where he tried to sell Steve and Betty Jo a new house. One of the houses he took them to see was the house they already owned.
