    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.

    I haven't gotten season three yet, but I will...after all, it features a Jimmy Stewart appearance as himself in Robbie Gets His Letter (Mar. 7, 1963). An inspiring speech delivered by Stewart.

    While I always prefer to find the best deal or wait for a sale I'm reasonably sure will happen with a bit of patience, when it comes to something like this - MOD releases with little chance of going down in price to any meaningful degree - I consider 2 things:

    1) Is this one of the must-have shows on my want list, or is this a "it would be nice to have, but I can take it or leave it" show?
    2) I remind myself of those days back in the 90s when I was purchasing VHS tapes through Columbia House for certain series and the price was $25+ for 4 half-hour episodes or 2-one-hour episodes per volume. And except for serialized Dallas, the volumes consisted of random episodes. Never in sequence, and they never seemed to finish a series (at least not the ones I was purchasing). And yet it was so great to get those at the time.

    So while I don't make a habit of spending high full-price amounts for split volume releases (even with Gunsmoke - not MOD but does come in split volumes - I'll typically wait awhile for at least a minor price drop or a Deep Discount sale), My Three Sons is one series where I'm willing to deal with the higher price, even with split volumes and a few edits. It would certainly be better than the current Me-TV airings, or in some cases at least not any worse. And especially after the long wait between Seasons 2 and 3, I want to show my support for continued releases by not waiting very long to purchase them once they're available.

    i don't have S3 but plan to get it, even with the edited episodes (really, how can a CBS MOD not do better than this?) I plan to pick up any/all B/W seasons, after that, I'm not sure what I'll do.

    I was wondering the same thing. I am not ordering from Moviezyng. There is virtually no info online about them and no reviews on their service. Why would amazon no longer be selling MOD titles from CBS?

    Oldies.com also has it listed but I have heard horror stories about their customer service. Terrible online reviews. Will not order from them either.

    (More generally).

    Nowadays I only bother buying dvd/bluray discs from amazon, costco, and wallyworld to a lesser degree. Mainly for the reason they don't usually give you the "5th degree" when asking for an exchange for defective dvd/bluray discs.

    For the few other retailers I've encountered, they're a nightmare to deal with when it comes to defective discs.

    Surprised that My Three Sons S4 didn't show up at some point last month on MOD. So I'm assuming CBS/Paramount just decided at the last minute to hold up the release. Glad it's at least on it's way now.

    Well over $100 to buy season 3 and 4 soon is going to sting, but glad to see some action on this front even if the situation isn't perfect with the price, unrestored transfers, and some cuts here and there.

    Along with Ozzie & Harriet, this is the one at the top of my wish list.

    I don’t have the money yet, but I hope someone buys it and reviews it. I would love to know how many unedited episodes there are altogether.
