I recall watching the color seasons a fair amount growing up. At the time, I did not even realize there were b/w seasons since I never found them syndicated. Though, I originally thought it strangely odd they started with a wedding of the oldest son. I've enjoyed even more the b/w seasons, since released. Unfortunately, after seasons 1 and 2 it was using barely watchable copies. At this point, I'll take edited, or music substitutions to get watchable video, as unfavorable an option that may be to most to get the remainder of the b/w episodes. That said, if you aren't a big fan of the show, there are many obstacles to overcome for these last ditch releases. I based the five count of edited episodes on Kasey's previous post, but even eight does not sway me. I'm happy they are at least fast tracking them to some degree. I would not expect the prices to ever drop drastically since as a MOD, there is little incentive to do so. Hopefully, season 5 will be out before Christmas.
