The first two seasons of this three-season late-'60s gimmicky sitcom have already been out on DVD for years. The third and final season has been out there in lingo somewhere and has yet to be released.

Any news of the third season being released?

I have also been waiting for the 3rd season on DVD.

I'm not positive about this, but I seem to recall that some 3rd season episodes have music/songs in them and if this is the case, maybe music clearance issues are what's preventing season 3 to be released on DVD. I'm not sure, just speculating. It is odd however that seasons 1 and 2 were both released on DVD in 2006 and season 3 has been in stall mode ever since. Very strange.

Weren't a lot of those songs written for the show? I don't think that there would be a problem if that were the case.

Something has to be preventing the 3rd season from being released on DVD, if it isn't music then I don't know what the issue is. It's been 15 years since seasons 1 and 2 were released on DVD so I'm no longer hopeful that the 3rd season will be released. But if it happens I will buy it.

Odd that the last season was never released- music clearance issues?

Maybe Shout decides to release the last season of this show?

Caproni,

The same music clearance, B.S. excuse was used to explain the long delayed release of Ben Casey. Then out of nowhere, Ben Casey was released, uncut.
STILL waiting for the other seasons.

I've been watching The Flying Nun on YouTube and Tubi. There's a few episodes on the former, but the quality isn't the greatest. I'm actually enjoying the show thus far, despite misgivings presented on other forums where my online buddies haven't given the show the kindest of marks.

I think a primary reason I'm liking it so well so far is because of Sally Field, a charming actress I've always had something of a soft spot for. I've never particularly sought after her work, but I've enjoyed her in everything I've seen her in thus far. She's a good actress, but she's often sidelined in girl-next-door roles, especially when she was younger.

What I've gathered from sampling a few episodes is that The Flying Nun is your regular late 1960s sitcom. It's got routine stories with routine acting. The one thing I noticed that was missing was the laugh track, which is used sparingly considering the nature of this particular series. I was expecting something similar to the laugh tracks heard on Bewitched and Gilligan's Island, but The Flying Nun employs a very subtle and something of an underused laugh track.

My two favorite films as a kid were The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins. So I loved The Flying Nun because she was a nun who was always in trouble and interacted with children like Maria and she could fly and make things turn out alright like Mary Poppins. I still have a fond feeling for the show and watch it now and then. It always makes me smile, and I still love the flying sequences. It makes me a bit sad that Sally Field doesn't look back on it more fondly since I loved it so a kid, she gave me a lot of enjoyment. But after reading her autobio, I realized she has good reasons to feel the way does. I am so pleased she has had a successful and fulfilling movie career.
