Default Webster - Season One DVD Review

George and Katherine Papadapolis (Alex Karras and Susan Clark) have just returned from their Greek honeymoon to their new home and life. They're not exactly the perfectly matched couple; he's a former football player and she is a wealthy socialite. But other than that, it looks like it'll be a fairly normal lifestyle... until "then came" their surprise. Seven-year-old Webster Long (Emmanuel Lewis) shows up at the front door of the apartment after George's recently deceased best friend leaves him in George's custody. Not only that, but this kid is also of a different race from George and Katherine: they are white, and he is black. The unexpected surprise is greeted with a bit of confusion at first, but George and Katherine quickly realize that Webster is a perfect fit for their home, even if neither of them know anything about raising a child and are learning along the way.

The series is a pop-culture smash hit of the 80s, and gave us the popularity of Emmanuel Lewis that we see today. Running from 1983-1989 (until 1987 on ABC, then first-run syndication), the series was similar, in a sense, to the premise of the series Diff'rent Strokes, but taking on a much lighter hearted approach, and being geared more toward a younger audience (particularly in later seasons). Now, for the first time ever on any home media format, you can own all 22 episodes of the first season of this pop-culture hit on a three-disc DVD set!
