1.) Description (Editorial Review)
Green Acres is the place to be!
Revisit your favorite friends from Hooterville with Green Acres,
the classic sitcom finally available to you in a complete series
Oliver Douglas (Academy Award nominee Eddie Albert) is a well-read
lawyer who has had enough of the hustle and bustle of New York, so
he pulls up stakes to settle down in a more pastoral setting ...
much to the dismay of his glamorous wife Lisa (Eva Gabor, The
Rescuers), who’s more accustomed to life in The Big Apple than on a
small farm. Having said "goodbye, city life", the Douglases must
contend with their new surroundings: a bucolic world of slapstick,
silliness, Arnold Ziffel ... and don’t get us started on one of
television’s most recognizable theme songs!
Includes All 170 Episodes Of Farm-To-Table Homespun Hilarity!
- So much better without the commercials and uncut. Many of these
episodes I have never seen before in syndication which surprised
me. I got a kick out of the gags in like with the title credits
showing up on towels and eggs. More funny now than when it first
aired. Now I wish they would release the rest of Petticoat

1.)IKudos to Shout! Factory for securing the rights to this '60s
classic! I had been hoping that the final 3 seasons of "Green
Acres" would be released at some point in the future, and recently
began checking Amazon again to see if anything changed regarding
its stalled status. Imagine my surprise, when I saw that the series
is to be released in its entirety this October! Unfortunately, when
MGM released the first two seasons, they used double-sided discs,
which was more of a common practice a decade ago. Needless to say,
this type of presentation is more susceptible to fingerprints and
easy scratching. The same type of presentation was given to the
first four seasons of "The Bob Newhart Show" released by Fox.
However, when Shout! released that series, they switched to
single-sided discs! I'm assuming they'll do the same for "Green
Acres"! So, climb the telephone pole and let others know that this
TV gem is almost available, and pre-order your copy today. Then,
make a steaming pile of hotcakes, buy a couch from Mr. Haney, sit
back, and enjoy "Green Acres: The Complete Series."
2.) This is a wonderfully well written comedy series. Very
brilliantly done, with clever themes that only simpletons would
incorrectly call stupid. This series is written with tight comedic
lines throughout. It is like a standup comedy routine, by each
performer. No greed on the part of Shout Factory, because the first
3 seasons were released by the "greedy" MGM studio. They did
nothing to enhance the video from the 35mm original prints. Judging
by the past, Shout Factory on the other hand will take the 35mm
prints and give us the first 3 and last 3 seasons in pristine
condition. I for one am excited to finally be able to buy these fun
shows via Shout Factory, the way they should have been done. Even
if you purchased the first 3 seasons, they weren't worth the price.
SF will correct the greed and mistreatment of MGM. This is one
series not to miss, if you watch it the way it was meant to be
watched, as a standup comedy, smartly written, thematic episodes
with running congruity, referencing other top rated rural series of
the time. Very few shows have been written this well. Enjoy!
