Default The Donna Reed Show - Season Four: The Lost Episodes DVD Review

One of America's leading ladies of television is back on DVD! After some issues that a previous studio had with releasing The Donna Reed Show, the series is back for another season on DVD, from a new studio. This time, MPI brings the fourth season to DVD in a five disc set. But the mere fact that the episodes are on DVD isn't exactly why this set is such a big deal. The 39 episodes seen in this set are considered to be lost episodes, having not been aired on TV in decades. That means that most people who remember watching the series in reruns on Nick at Nite in the '80s and '90s will not remember the episodes on this set, as they never aired them. In fact, they have been withheld completely from all syndicated runs for at least the past few decades, simply because the series was deemed to have too many episodes than what was necessary for syndication.

The fourth season of the series takes on somewhat of a different tone than the previous seasons, with a few episodes taking on a more serious tone and not necessarily the "laugh every 30 second" sitcom model. The season is also a more "musical" season, introducing rock-and-roll into the sitcom, including the incredibly famous (to this day) "Johnny Angel" by Shelley Fabares. And of course, we do get to follow the entire Stone family through their everyday adventures in all (well, nearly all, you'll find out why that is in the episodes section) of the episodes of this season. So come and join one of America's favorite mothers for 39 episodes in Donna Reed - Season Four: The Lost Episodes!

Thanks for the informative review. I'm not really a Donna Reed fan, but since MPI did a great job with this season, I might order it along with Hazel season 2 when it comes out in February. Hazel I will order for sure, Donna Reed I don't know yet I'll have to think it over.

Great season 4 set by MPI!

Now I really wish they get Season 5 ready in time for Mother's Day.
