Well, we've made another addition to our dvd library and to our Amazon Listmania list and I wanted to tell you about it. Do you like old TV programs as much as we do? If so, then I HEARTILY recommend getting "The Donna Reed Show" season one set. Believe me, it's a worthwhile investment for your family. This show premiered on September 24, 1958 on ABC and was a favorite family sitcom for a long time. I think many of us can identify with Donna as she encounters all sorts of situations and family issues. It's a lot of fun; for me it's very relaxing to watch in the midst of all the tensions of the day and time we find ourselves. I am so thankful for the technology of today which allows us to "go back" and capture the kinds of shows that were on in days gone by. It's so refreshing to sit and watch with my daughter and chuckle together over what some would call "dumb stuff," but we thoroughly enjoy the antics of the Stone family in their little fictional town.
The season one package which we have has 37 episodes. Now, that's a lot! We're still watching them on evenings when we want something to help us unwind. And the best thing: No commercials!
We got it for Christmas at Amazon; if you click on the picture it will take you there. Why not treat your family to this DVD. You can watch an episode each Friday evening for your movie night, as a prelude to whatever is your main attraction. Goes well with popcorn and potato chips.
There were quite a few favorite prime time family type sitcoms "back in the day" when we could safely sit there with all ages present and enjoy without worrying what might come out of someone's mouth! I had so many that I enjoyed. Was there any one that was a favorite of yours?
