Great News, but unless Bill Bixby is coming back from the beyond, "The Courtship Of Eddie's Father" never had a Christmas episode....I got fooled as did GoodLife TV when they were running it a few years back....the episode originally aired near Christmas and was about gift giving to Norm. Unless Goodlife edited something out, the word Christmas is never mentioned, no tree, no decorations, not one happy holiday, no cards, zip, natta, nothing....so I advise Warner to actually watch the episode b4 putting it on this set...rather have another Alice, since they did 3 plus a new years episode....actually Alice holds the record for the most holiday themed episodes in a series from Valentines day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, New Years, etc.

OFF TOPIC: Pav could you answer my question in the WPIX/NY Chiller Theatre thread regarding them cutting the movies down to two instead of four?...seems some last minute changes have been made.

How is the DVD quality? Falcon Crest season 2 came out and I heard the quality of the release was awful. I'd love to buy it for the Eight is Enough episode and the Alice episode plus Mama's Family.

We don't have the set yet for review, so can't tell you about the quality yet. So stay tuned to that.

Thanks TeeVeeCloset. Interesting about COEF. Didn't know that.

The biggest selling point for me is Eight is Enough, but not sure if that warrants a purchase. I do like the cover art, and Perfect Strangers and CHiPS would be a bonus. I'll keep the set in mind.

Tubehead, that is from Paramount. This is a Warner Bros. set.

I just want to confirm that what TVCloset said about COED is absolutely correct. I also got fooled into thinking the 2nd Season episode from that series, entitled "Gifts are for Giving", was a Christmas episode because it did originally air in December of that year. But it's not one and I'm betting Warners is just going on the assumption it is. If someone close to them can tell them otherwise it might be to their benefit before they create a master DVD-R.

Also, I'm really, really hoping that they use the 1st Season Christmas episode from DR. KILDARE (there are actually two in this series), called "Season to be Jolly". It's by far the superior Christmas episode and it's one of my favorite of all time.

From Warner Archive on Courtship of Eddie's Father:

Interesting production note: the ep is not specific to Xmas but was made for Xmas. About gifting. Very subtle and sweet. We defined it would fit based on what we understand as the production's intent. Also, you get a great COEF ep!

Very interesting, Pav. Thanks for the update from Warners on this issue. I am glad we are at least getting a COED episode on disc, but I'd really love to know why the writers at the time didn't make the episode a true Christmas one (with at least some of the trappings).

The episode info for all of the episodes on this set should be out later this week.

I know you will agree with me about this....I would have much rather seen the Christmas episode of "Life Goes On" or about 10 other lost known Christmas episodes than a non-christmas episode of "The Courtship Of Eddie's Father" ....as usual so close, but the company still screws something up!

Gotta agree, TV. That episode just isn't Christmasy at all to me. They blew it on that one. If anything, they could have released both Christmas episodes from KILDARE. Or another of the four from ALICE (I'm assuming they are only going to include one on this set). Or, as you suggest, any one of many other "lost" Christmas episodes.
