Default My Three Sons - The First Season - Volume One DVD Review

Steve, Mike, Rob, Chip, and of course, Grandpa “Bub,” are together again as a family, in Volume 1 of The First Season of My Three Sons! The three disc set contains the first half of the first (of many seasons) of the popular 60s sitcom. Like most other family series of the decade, the series demonstrated all of the important values of being the perfectly functional family, but with a different type of family. In the series, Steve Douglas (played by Fred MacMurray) is a widower that is left with his three sons, and a little help from Grandpa Bub (played by William Frawley) who fills the role of cook, housekeeper, and nanny for the boys. The series evolves over the years, with all of the boys eventually growing up (much like the boys on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet) and many other changes, but these episodes show how it all started out.

It comes out on Sep 30. I plan on picking it up myself. But I dont understand why CBS/Paramount split the season in half thoe? Some stores want over $30 for it thats dumb to pay that for half a season. I'm going to run into Costco's or Sam's Club on Tuesday. There usely cheaper then the retail stores. Well I hope they will be selling it?

well, acording to that review, it sounds as if it's pretty good. At least all the episodes are uncut, which is good. But why the hell are they just releasing half the season??? And selling it for the ludricrous price of $30????

But, this gives us hope for "THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES" which is coming next month. And, if you haven't heard, that one, unlike other CBS/Paramount release (like this one) will have extras, and the opening ang closing themes will be intact. Let's just hope the episodes aren't edited, though.

They are only putting out half the season, thats stupid.

I smell issues with copyrights, which leads back to money and royalties, oh boy!

Remember this is CBS/Paramount we are talking about here. Nothing they do makes since. I think the TV releases was so mutch better when it was just Paramount.

I agree with the reviewer that the "sons" in these episodes should have been interviewed (Tim Considine, Don Grady, and Stan Livingston). For a high-priced set of just one-half of a black and white season, one would expect some extras. Some of the guests like Marta Kristen would be nice to hear from as well.

yea, and eccspesially for that price!!!

Also, vintage interviews with Fred MacMurrey and Bill Frawley would also be nice.

Where's Paul Brownstien when we need him?

Get this folks, the peeps at Home Theater Forum have informed me that CBS has changed the background music for this release!!!!! Gone is the great jazzy score and replaced by syntheziser music... THEY ARE RAGING MAD OVER THERE, to say the least.

it's not enough to change my mind on my order, since I'm not buying the show for its music and I haven't seen this show in over 20 years.

BUT SHAME ON CBS FOR THIS STUPID DECISION!!!!!!!!!!

I'm holding off on it since I have most of the first season. I'd like the entire season, but from what I've heard so far, it just may not be worth it. Let us know about it once it arrives. I hate when the music isn't the same, makes the show seem fake.

I agree. It's been so long that I've seen the show, I don't remember the background music. However, I want shows to be completely unedited and this ticks me off. But I'm still loving the episodes and plan to buy every release they sell.

I was watching the episodes and there are certain scenes where I thought the music sounded like it wasn't right. But I thought to myself after the whole Fugitive fiasco, Paramount wouldn't do anything like that again. I was wrong.

I'm very worried that if they finally release the last two seasons of "Taxi" that it's music will be changed.

we're all concerned that they will do this now to Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction (shows both known for their background music and cues) and The Lucy Show.
