Several classic shows are getting full season releases today. You can pick up The Donna Reed Show: The Complete Second Season, Charlie’s Angels: The Complete Fourth Season and/or The Lucy Show: The Official First Season. The Lucy Show ran from 1962 to 1967 and was Lucille Ball’s first solo series following the long-running I Love Lucy (1951-1957) and The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957-1960).
She played widow Lucy Carmichael, mother of two children who lived with her best buddy Vivian Bagley (played by I Love Lucy co-star Vivian Vance). After three seasons the show shifted formats dramatically. Vance left and the kids were written out of the series. Some thirty public domain episodes from the entire six-season run have been released previously but this is the first official release and you get all thirty episodes from the 1962-1963 season.
Also out today is Route 66: Season 3 Volume 1, which ran from 1960 to 1964 on CBS. According to TVShowsOnDVD.com you can expect to see Season 3, Volume 2 released on October 20th and The Complete Season Three on January 12th, 2010. A word of warning: an exclusive Complete Season 3 available at Best Buy and Critic’s Choice includes some defective discs. Read this press release for the full details.
