I have to agree with TeeVeeCloset... everyone complains when a series is stalled or abandoned. I give Shout a lot of credit for doing what all the other studios don't do...sell directly to the fans. If they didn't do this, then we wouldn't get the series at all. As long as it is made available in physical dvds in some outlet, I'm all for it. I have gladly pre-ordered my copy even with the higher price tag.

Season 5 is available on August 17, 2010 to mark Jane Wyatt's 100th birthday. She was born on August 12, 1910 and passed away in 2006.

Ditto! At that price, I would at least expect free shipping. I bought the first season on a whim at Sam's Club and have been pre-ordering each season since at amazon.com or deepdiscount.com. I would like to own the entire series, but at this price it will probably be sometime before I buy it. I think this price just encourages people to seek bootleg copies.

I basically agree also, but I do wish it would be available in stores or through other outlets like critics choice or movies unlimited. It looks like they changed the packaging too, going with the cheap amaray case instead of the nice slim cases. That's another drawback. But yeah it'll be better than nothing, it looks like they will finish the series since there's only one more season after this.

I'm glad you could do that, TeeVee! Some of us can't at the moment....I will just have to order it later when I save some funds to the side.

Thank you!!

I'm not encouraging bootlegs.....I just think Shout! should offer this to Amazon and other online outlets as well.....the release will get more attention. And for those of us on limited budgets (and depend on getting Amazon gcs for things), this will help sales.

I didn't mean to imply that you were. I'm not either. I'm so disappointed in this season not being available at the usual outlets.

I just want to again stress to everyone that is "disappointed", we are now about to see "Father Knows Best" season 5 released, I would have bet at one time, this series would have never been released...period....not only have we gotten episodes of a lost Robert Young series as bonus material, there is strong rumors we will get the reunion movies on the last two seasons. I am "old school" like many of you and enjoyed my weekly visits to the record shop when I was kid and Best Buy as an adult....now it is 2010 and I have seen Saturday Matinee, Virgin Records, Licorace Pizza, Sam Goody, Tower Records, Circuit City, Record Town, and many FYE stores all shut their doors...meaning the world is changing fast...too fast...and yes Best Buy (who won't carry such titles because they want big $$ for their precious shelf space) so amazon and other similar internet sites are the only game in town...in another 10 years or less, they are predicting there will be no retail of cd's or dvds AT ALL!, you will just download episodes/artwork ...at home and make your own.....YUCK!..I understand some of you and the financial situations (and I'm no Rockefeller) but again "Father" would have been abondoned long ago, but shout stuck with it in an amazing timely manner, many of us here (including myself) begged them for an online only exclusive site, and we said we would gladly pay more and understand why...$39.99 plus shipping is about $5 more then you would pay at best buy....it just seems as in life, you can't please everybody, but its coming out, unedited...end of story....and I am telling you, these online exclusives again will be deleted within a year or two and people will be trying to sell them on ebay for $100 each, so if you love the series, what is the big deal about signing up at shout or buying them through their provided seller on amazon? Happy watching to all!

I understand your point of view. I wish we could get a listing of what is on this set. I've read it may be 2 more Window on Main St. episodes--but no word if the first reunion movie is included. If i know it would be, I would scrape up the money somewhere to pre-order this

Agree with TeeVeeCloset, times are changing and within five years or so pressed DVD's may not be sold anymore. Classic shows may only be available via download through your computer. And some classic TV DVD releases these days are restricted to on line purchase through the distributor. Limited numbers of sets are being produced. So advice is, when the next season of a favorite classic show comes out on DVD, get it while you can don't delay or you might miss the boat.

You won't be disappointed. It's a great set! I got mine yesterday and the episodes are just wonderful. Continues where Season 4 left off and such great storylines so far. I must admit not caring as much for the Frank episodes but this one is different and done so nicely.

The package is compact but the discs are housed rather nicely. The episode titles are listed inside on each side of the case. You have to remove Disc 1 or Disc 6 to read them, but it's all layed out very neatly.

No pics inside though. They stick to simple graphics and text. One thing that seems different is the closing logo which looks like some new distribution company or something. Still cool though. Very reminiscent of shows that were rerun back in the 80s.

Hope everyone enjoys their sets!
