Product Description

Eight Is Enough: The Complete First Season

Amazon.com

Before the extended families that came to dominate prime time, from Full House to Parenthood, ABC launched Eight Is Enough, an adaptation of Crossfire host Thomas W. Braden's memoir. The pilot sets the tone: parenting is serious stuff, but a little humor never hurts (consequently, a redundant laugh track occasionally comes into play). Tom Bradford (Dick Van Patten, who sports TV's cutest comb-over), a Sacramento columnist, and his wife, Joan (Diana Hyland), are imperfect, but involved parents. As the series begins, oldest son David (Mark Hamill, Star Wars), a construction worker, leaves the nest, but there would be a few cast changes by the second episode. Notably, Grant Goodeve would replace Hamill, while Willie Aames took over as Tommy. With women's lib in full effect, the Bradford women spend much of these nine episodes trying to find their way in a changing world: Joan takes up photography, Susan (Susan Richardson) goes on a ski trip with a male coed, and Mary (Lani O'Grady) opposes her father during a newspaper strike. Other episodes revolve around Tommy's crush on an indecisive classmate (Charlene Tilton) and David's affair with an older woman (Adrienne Barbeau). That leaves Joanie (Laurie Walters), the drama student, Nancy (Dianne Kay), the cheerleader, Elizabeth (Connie Newton), the typical teenager, and Nicholas (Adam Rich), the elfin pipsqueak. Once you get past the flared jeans and wide lapels, Eight Is Enough holds up surprisingly well, since the primary concerns are timeless. If the acting can be uneven, the chemistry between cast members papers over the cracks. Sadly, Hyland only filmed four episodes due to illness (she passed away in 1977). In the second season, Betty Buckley stepped in as the newest member of the Bradford clan. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Now I'm hoping that the rest of the seasons will be released on DVD as well, I would definitely buy them.

I have a brand new Widescreen LED tv and the picture is pretty good for dvd, It's not blu ray quality but it is pretty clear and sharp with very minimal grain.

If people are actually buying cheesy shows like "Mork and Mindy," then they will most definitely buy "Eight is Enough!"

While growing up, Eight is Enough was one of my favorite shows. It was a rare family drama that was humorous and real without being too sappy. I would buy all of the seasons of this series in a heartbeat.

I love this show! It often would tackle serious subject matters and never failed to entertain. There have been two television series that i have wanted to see come out on DVD more than any others. One was "Family Affair" which finally came out and the other is "Eight is Enough". This show always made me feel warm inside as did "Family Affair". They were a family you would of liked to be a part of or at least visit for a while. Maybe that's part of it's appeal to me. I just hope we don't have to wait much longer to enjoy this wonderful show. Please release this quality show on DVD!

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!

Eight is Enough is one of the best family shows from the 1970s. Almost everyone you talk to has fond memories of the series and it should be released in boxed sets. It's one of the last '70s family series yet to be released, even though it is ranked #40 in WB series people would like to see on DVD -- out of their entire stable -- and ranked high on Amazon. Please write WB and ask them to release it!

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.

I can't believe that with the popularity of -- and push for -- family programming, this marvelous show isn't on the shelves available for purchase. I sure loved it as a young kid, and I would love to have this one in my home for the rest of my family to enjoy.

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.

I sure hope Eight is Enough comes out on DVD. I'll be the first one to buy it! This was my favorite show when I was younger. I would love to watch these episodes over and over again! What do we have to do to get them to make a DVD set??!!

Hi, Victoria!

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
