As long as the episodes are there and complete, I don't care if it's called (for example) The Bob Newhart Show Season 6, The Final Season, Season VI, or Ralph.
I think the final season of "The Bob Newhart Show" should've been called LaToya instead of Ralph.

If Green Acres ever gets unstalled, Season 6 should be "Ralph".

Season 5, of course, would be "Alf".

If "Green Acres" was released, I wouldn't care what they called it. They could just put it in a brown bag and I'll still buy it. "GA" is one of my most-wanted series that I want completed on DVD!

But still, I get your joke...pretty funny.

I know.

Fox is licensing shows to Shout, Olive Films, and TGG, and Green Acres STILL isn't finished.

If it's a Green Acres related joke, it's gone over my head, I guess (haven't watched enough of the show to get it.) If it's an ALF-related joke, I definitely get that.
I trust it's meant in light-hearted fun, but let's be careful not to appear to be mocking other forum members' interests, no matter what we might think of it personally. (And I don't say that to condemn anyone or exclude myself, as I must be careful how my words come across too.) Everybody has a right to express their feelings and we can certainly disagree. But we have to remember to disagree agreeably.

Alf and Ralph are brother and sister carpenters on "Green Acres".

Something I'm hoping for if and when the last season (1983-84) of Hart to Hart is released: that it is not called simply "The Final Season." I would like for it to be called "The Complete Fifth and Final Season," "The Complete Fifth Season," or similar.

Some of Shout Factory's "Final Season" DVDs may not have a season number at all. (Which I have always thought is Bulls**t.)

Some "Final Season" DVDs may read "final season" on the front cover, spine, and possibly the back and inside, but not the discs themselves.

Some "Final Season" DVDs may read "final season" only on the front cover, but anywhere else has the season number. (That way, a viewer's enjoyment of the shows presented on the DVDs wouldn't be spoiled as badly.)

If Shout Factory releases a "complete series" DVD, will the box of the last season within that set still say "final season"?

On 6/9, the fifth and final season's worth (1983-84) of Hart to Hart will be released, but, as with many of Shout!'s final-season releases, it will simply be called "The Final Season." That aside, I am still glad that it will be released.

Shout Factory can just practically change their name to "Sucks Factory" now. What, they're gonna make it standing policy and act like its against the law to put the season numbers on TV show's "final season" DVDs? Fox Home Entertainment excludes the season number on the DVDs of Sons of Anarchy S7 and Glee S6.

Look at the upcoming DVD release of the sixth and last season of Mister Ed: The front cover has "The Final Season", but the spine still says "The Complete Sixth Season".

On further examination, it is not all hopeless for that fifth-season Hart release; just like the 6th Ed release, the Hart release will have "The Complete Fifth Season" on the spine.

Unfortunately, Fox Home Entertainment pulled a Paramount/Shout Factory with the recently-concluded sixth and final season of Glee, calling that simply The Final Season. No season number anywhere on that, either, not even on the spine or back.

One unique case of a "Final Season" DVD: Breaking Bad, Season 5.

Season 5 of Breaking Bad was split in two halves, each consisting of eight episodes. The first half of S5 was released as "The Fifth Season", and the second half of S5 was released as "The Final Season".

Just purchased the 8th and last release (1967-68) of The Andy Griffith Show for my mother, and while it is called officially "The Complete Final Season," on the back in the blurb, the season number is mentioned.
