    This better not be fake. That would be too cruel. If this is true, this will be a must buy. Whoo Hoo! [​IMG]

    I have mixed feelings about All in the Family--particularly the first few episodes--but $24.95 for an entire season? That just cannot be passed up.

    Now, if they do the same for Sanford and Son, I'll pass out, do the happy monkey dance, or anything else I can think of to express my everlasting joy.

    This can't be good for Columbia House sales? But hey! It's their own fault. They should know what the public wants.

    This is great news, I was awaiting confirmation of this set. I do wonder and worry about the running time though, as the first season is 13 episodes with a average 25 minute running time equals 325 minutes, but the small print says Approx. 286 minutes. I worry that these are going to be edited episodes that have been making the rounds on Nick at Night.

    MTFBWY and HH!!

    Wow this is just great news, not only because All In The Family is such a classic show, but because of the downward trend in pricing we are seeing on TV product. The studios must be really surprised by the numbers on Simpsons, MASH, Xfiles etc to be offering complete seasons at these amazing prices. One has to wonder if Fox will bring out the next Simpsons sets at a lower MSRP than previously assumed.

    All I can say is more please, and who the hell has the rights to the Andy Griffith Show? Viacom/Paramount?

    It will be available at stores -- if it's real. I hope it's real, but don't forget all the hoax DVD covers and screen shots circulating on the Internet for other movies.

    The 286 minutes could have simply been an estimate by someone at Columbia who thought that TV shows have always run 22 minutes. Or it could be the estimate of a hoaxer who didn't know how long the actual episodes ran. Even if true, looks like absolutely no extras. But if it is true, I'm definitely cancelling my Columbia House subscription.

    The more I look at it, though, the more suspicious I get. Three discs for only thirteen 25-minute episodes, with no extra material? That's only about 5 hours and 40 minutes. Why would you need 3 discs? Two would be plenty. And anyway, 3 discs for a suggested retail price of 24.95? Two for that price, maybe, but three? It sounds suspicious to me.

    Brian,
    I think that the extreme skepticism is unfounded.

    No, CURRENT television shows run 22 minutes. Back in the early 70s, they ran 25 minutes. I know -- I have the first All in the Family DVD from Columbia House, with the first 4 episodes. They're about 25 minutes a piece.

    And The Blue and the Gray is nearly an hour longer than the first season of All in the Family, so that could account for the three discs. Also, NO OTHER WEB SITE is reporting on this. I hope I'll eat crow... but I'll believe it when I see it.

    Brian,

    I think that I was only advocating against the extreme skepticism. I agree that some skepticism is necessary. Unfortunately being that DVDShrine posted this late Friday night it might be Monday before any of the other sites post anything on this true or not.

    My point about The Blue and The Gray is only one of cost and cost alone. I think it is feasible for Columbia to have 3-discs for $25.

    For what it is worth, I agree with you. I was only playing devil's advocate (not very well I guess).

    -Chad

    Expecting syndicated re-run cuts of the episodes makes about as much sense as expecting Monsters Inc. to be the Wonderful World of Disney TV cut... not much.
