With this season of 32 episodes, the Father Knows Best series called it a day. It's too bad because it probably could have gone on for another year or two. But Robert Young and Jane Wyatt were tired (she one referred to this season as "sheer hell"). but there are exceptional shows. One is "Betty's Double," where Elinore Donahue as Betty wins a look-alike contest based on her resemblance to Donna Stewart, also played by Donahue. She finds Hollywood to be shallow and cruel (Isn't it funny how Hollywood always portrays "Hollywood" as a vacant, distant entity?). Another good one, funny to be sure is "Togetherness," where a reporter is assigned to profile the Anderson clan. The results are predictable, but hilarious. As usual, Billy Gray as Bud shines in every episode that's centered around him. The best being "Bud Lives It Up," where he goes a little crazy by overspending on a college trip. Consequences abound. Gray was better than Tony Dow of Leave It to Beaver, or Paul Peterson of the Donna Reed Show, as an actor that is. A very, very natural actor. Truly gifted. I was really amazed that he didn't go further in his career after FKB went off the air in 1960. The shows all have the original beginning music for season 6, and the correct season 6 ending music on a handful of shows. Bonus features (NO REUNION MOVIES from 1977!!!) two shows from Robert Young's next show, Window on Main Street. No captioning. There aren't too many shows from the 50s that have all the episodes released on DVD. I think I love Lucy and The Honeymooners are the only others, but this show is a gem. Classy, well-written and very heartwarming. Buy it!

This afternoon I finally finished watching all of the FKB releases, and they are well worth your time, attention, and dollars. I began with season 3 and 4, then went back to 1 and 2, then on to 5 and 6. And I'm glad I did it in that order -- the first two seasons are kind of "finding their way", and it was somewhere midway through season 2 where they figured out what they wanted the series to be. In my view, FKB, without a laugh track, would be considered to be basically a drama series, with a few laughs along the way. Many of the episodes are very serious about kids growing up. And the idea often expressed that this was a too perfect family...well, I don't agree. Bud was selfish, often rude and inconsiderate, and had little common sense. Betty was an overachiver. And, Cathy was a whiner. Sounds like some families I knew. Yes, Mom and Dad were probably the best parents one could hope for...but even they sometimes realized their failures -- it is surprising over the course of the series how often they told their children they were "ashamed" of them. In other words, what I am saying is -- this is real life, with a little humor thrown in. Around 200 episodes, and I enjoyed virtually every one of them. There are few series from the past or the present that I can say that about. Highest recommendation, and heads above Ozzie and Harriet or the Cleavers -- those were JUST situation comedies. FKB is the gold standard.

Father Knows Best is by far my all-time favorite TV series. Each episode was entwined with a lesson to everyone, not just the young. The Anderson family mirrored my 5-member family as we grew up in the 50s and 60s, however we lived in the South. I wish there were more seasons because I would definitely purchase the DVDs... oh well, we can only wish our young people these values in the days ahead. By the way, every DVD I have purchased through Amazon has been in excellent (new) condition.

Thanks!

Always loved this show - all 6 seasons never disappointed me with their quality.
While Donna Reed was a good show, it was mostly fluff, while FKB always delivered a good and worthwhile message to learn.
The people who write todays garbage should give a look to a quality show that people really do want to watch, without sex, drugs, murder and all the rest of the world's problems.

I now have all seasons of "Father Knows Best". I feel better that I paid the exorbitant price to someone else besides Shout Factory. I saved a couple of bucks on shipping, too. I HATE Shout Factory for supposedly making this available only through them with the outrageous price of $39.99 PLUS shipping.

This was my least favorite of all the seasons, but there are a few very good episodes, and I really enjoy the "Window On Main Street" show that is included in the entire collection.

We now own all 6 seasons of "Father Knows Best" and couldn't be happier. This show is as just important and valuable today, during this most uncertain economy with it's daily problems, as it was when it first came to Television. Whenever my husband and I want to just
forget about daily troubles we know that we can watch a show that has honesty, values, morales and old-fashioned fun in each episode. This is quite refreshing in today's world. Would that more people would watch ... and LEARN!!
