Eight Is Enough: Season 1
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Running on ABC from 1977 to 1981, this family comedy classic revolves around Sacramento journalist Tom Bradford (Dick Van Patten) and his eight very independent and individual children (David, Mary, Joanie, Susan, Nancy, Elizabeth, Tommy and Nicholas) forced to deal with life's ups and downs, while living under one roof. Winner of a People's Choice Award for Favorite New Program as well as two Emmy® nominations, this often comical, but always touching family drama was the heir apparent to the television mantle of The Brady Bunch. Anchored by Dick Van Patten's Everman's father and husband, the serialized show made stars out of many of its underage actors and guest stars – including The Karate Kid's Ralph Macchio, Star Wars' Mark Hamill and more. There's more than enough laughs and life-lessons in the first season of this television classic.]]>

They just released "Medical Center" the first complete season available on their website only at this point. Maybe they could do the same for "Eight Is Enough" if we pester them enough!
Even though Betty Buckley wasn't on the show until the second year as Abby, the first short season was a decent offering. Dick Van Patten as Tom Bradford was maybe one of the best TV dads on television ever.
The first year was so brief, so it would be great if whoever owns the rights would release seasons one & two TOGETHER (like the "Dallas" set). Betty Buckly, after all, was one of the best things to ever happen to this series.
01 - Never Try Eating Nectarines Since Juice May Dispense (3-15-77)
Elizabeth is arrested for drug possession, and David (played by Mark 'LUKE SKYWALKER' Hammil in this episode only - Grant Goodeve took over in episode 2) moves out on his own.
**The title of this episode is really just a clever way that Tom and Joan remember the names of all their 8 kids - Nicholas, Tommy, Elizabeth, Nancy, Susan, Joanie, Mary & David (from youngest to oldes)**
02 - Schussboomer (3-22-77)
Mary's single friend (who's also pregnant--GASP!) stays with the Bradford family and clashes with Tom. Apparently Diana Hyland who played Tom's wife Joan, passed away around the time this episode first aired, forcing them to eventually have the mother character die--and allow Betty Buckly to join the cast as the woman Tom would soon marry!
03 - Pieces Of Eight (3-29-77)
Tom and Joan argue when she insists on continuing her photography career while his newspaper is shut down by a strike.Read more ›
So THRILLED to see the first season finally being released! Everyone post about it, blog about it, tweet about it -- do whatever to get the word out there so that we get MORE than just 9 episodes on DVD! This is an anticipated release, but we must make sure we get the entire run on DVD, so it's not just a one shot one hit wonder.

Don't know if you'd be interested, but I have dealt with a guy who has all but 2 eps of EIE on DVD. This is his website: www.classics2dvd.com.
Back in June I ordered EIE from him for $80 + $5 shipping. The set was said to be complete, but it is missing the series-ending episode... Read More
