Default The Phil Silvers Show (Sgt. Bilko) - The Complete Series DVD Review

Sgt. Bilko is reporting for duty in The Phil Silvers Show (Sgt. Bilko) - The Complete Series! The 20 disc set brings together all 142 episodes of the classic series that aired from 1955 until 1959, with many episodes debuting on DVD for the first time ever (and a handful of episodes appearing to audiences for the first time in decades, as they have been withheld from syndication).

The series was one of TV's early sitcoms, and it was created by Nat Hiken (who would later create Car 54, Where Are You?). It starred Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko, who led a group of soldiers on an Army post in Kansas. But even though that was his official job, that wasn't quite what he did, ever. The original title of the series was actually You'll Never Get Rich, and that title pretty much sums up what it was about, as Bilko was constantly trying to find ways to get rich, whether it be through some sort of "get rich quick" scheme of the week, gambling, or other purposes. And sometimes it wasn't just trying to get rich, but just trying to get something that he wanted for himself... again often going through unscrupulous means to get those things. The setting moved to a post in California in the final season of the series, and ended after just four years. Today, as the series begins to fade somewhat into obscurity in syndication, Shout! Factory has finally given the series a bit of a revival with this DVD release, containing every episode unedited, along with several special features.
