Editorial Reviews

Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges return as brothers Arnold and Willis Jackson for another season of family fun and life lessons.


During the third season, Arnold and Willis get held hostage by bank robbers, Mr. Drummond (Conrad Bain) celebrates his 50th birthday in the hospital, Kimberly (Dana Plato) helps a pregnant girlfriend, and Arnold the great goes missing after a more-than-effective disappearing act. Diff’rent Strokes never shied away from the social and cultural issues at hand, but always managed to deliver laughs and heartfelt character development from week to week. Diff’rent Strokes ran eight seasons strong, from 1978 to 1986, airing both on NBC and ABC.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After 6 looooooong years since Season 2 came out they are FINALLY putting another season out of this awesome classic 80's show. I have NO idea what takes these studios so long to put these out when more obsucre, less popular shows already have full season sets and complete series sets out there. I am part of a growing number of parents with elementary and teen children that are tired of all the raunchy, overly sexualized junk that is being constantly exposed to our children on television. It's wonderful to have access to good, clean, fun television prgramming! Let's thank Shout Factory for taking this one under their wing and let's hope they bring it to its full completion of the full 8 season run. Now THAT's WHAT I'm TALKIN' BOUT WILLIS!!!!!!!

Finally a 3rd season disc comes out! I have every episode recorded from TV but just isn't the same. I can ditch the custom discs I created. I hope seasons 4 through 8 come out in shorter time period increments to catch up with the 6 year gap since season 2 was put out. Thank you SOOOO much!!!!

This is one of those shows that was very popular when I was growing up, and I liked it and watched it all the time. I've seen it in reruns many times over the years, so I wasn't in a rush to buy the dvds. The first season is probably my least favorite, although there are good episodes that I like in that one too. This is one of those shows that I think got better as it got into the second and third seasons.

Some memorable episodes, and some of my favorites, of the series are in this season: the bank robbery; when Arnold is addicted to junk food; Mr. Drummond getting amnesia; Arnold meeting Cathy. There are also some guest appearances from a few of the girls from The Facts of Life-Natalie, Tootie, and Blair.

I hope more seasons of Diff'rent Strokes are released. I'd like to even see the Sam years again.

Yes! Season 3 has finally been released! Recieved my dvd today! When I was a kid this was my favorite sitcome & season 3 & 4 were my favorite seasons, the show still holds up, it's sad the personal lives of the stars has effected the shows recent success, because despite their personal lives behind the scenes, for the viewer,, the show taught so many positive & safety lessons & on top of that the show was straight lol funny, looking forward to seeing more of this timeless classic cause as far as I'm concerned this show should be on heavy rotation like I Love Lucy & Andy Griffith.

A nice way to reflect on the 1980's.
It's funny to see how we still have some of these topics ion TV now, and other are slightly different.

My son is only 8 years old, and this is one of his favorite series from back in the day. He saw it on a cable channel once and wanted to see more, so I've purchased seasons 1-3 so far. We'll see, I may come back for more.
