    Did anyone hear anything more on "The Partridge Family" Complete Season One release on DVD for August of this year?


    I read on TVshowsondvd.com awhile ago that it was to be coming out soon... but I haven't seen anything else yet?

    Entertainment Weekly reports this week that there is a movie coming out (same vein as Brady Bunch movies via Paramount) and a Partridge Family Reality Series too.

    When I type it in at Amazon.com or Rhino.com nothing comes up. Did anyone hear anything else about this set yet?

    Do a search of this forum with the words Partridge Family, someone did a thread on it a while back and it stated that it was suppose to be out sometime in August.

    We posted a couple of weeks ago that it was delayed to November 23.

    Boy David... I bet you feel like Santa Claus this week or one of the three Wise Men. You continue to bring us good news about tv shows coming out on DVD in 2005.

    I've been waiting for the Partridge Family for a while now. I'm not too thrilled it's coming out via infomercials, but it's finally coming out.

    Thanks David.

    I still fail to understand why I get excited about a lot of these shows, but I will be getting Partridge Family for sure.

    Don't ask me where I heard it, but I think that we'll see season 1 in May.

    May is mentioned as the in-store timeframe in the news post I made yesterday that Michael alludes to. [​IMG]

    This is how it's done!

    My hats off to Sony for putting together such a nice set and it looks reasonably priced too. The extras look nice too. Sony and Rhino are really impressing me with their TV shows on DVD releases.

    I'll save the accolades until I've seen what kind of video/audio quality we are getting. That's an awful lot of content for three discs.

    Jeff's probably closer to reality on this, Michael. I'll reserve judgement until I see it for myself, but he's reflecting my thoughts on how this will probably turn out.

    You two are correct. The more information on the DVD the lower the quality. I don't care for the dual sided dvd's.

    I think of Buck Rogers. I had to send back my initial set until I got one that wasn't flawed. My season two of Kung Fu has parts where it gets stuck and I have to re-start it.

    It seems that the dual sided discs tend to have more problems with them.

    I guess the point I was trying to make was it was good to see this set finally coming out and that it actually has some interesting extras which isn't always something we get on our lovable tv show sets of yesteryear.

    Michael, I can't think of a single Sony TV-DVD that used dual-sided discs. Can anyone else?

    No, but I can think of a couple sets that they got right: Seinfeld 1&2 and 3. However, that was Sony's most important pair of TV releases in 2004, so they knew they couldn't mess that up. I'm guessing TPF: Season 1 will be pretty standard fare for them a/v-wise, even with coolest-looking cover art I've ever seen on Sony TV release.
