Editorial Reviews

When it comes to classic TV, "Green Acres" is the place to be! Head back to Hooterville for the complete third season of this riotous rural frolic. Eddie Albert stars as Oliver Wendell Douglas, the esteemed attorney who trades the rat race of Times Square for farm livin' and fresh air. In turn, his elegant Park Avenue wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) must give up Manhattan's fashion stores for Hooterville's barn chores all in the name of love! Together they bring a hilarious touch of class to America's most lovable country comedy. So say goodbye to city life, and hello to the simple life "Green Acres," we are there!

5.0 out of 5 stars "A wonderfully-executed half hour of absurdist comedy." October 19, 2005
Format:DVD
"Green Acres" was and still is often dismissed as a corny country comedy. But its inspired lunacy, with hints of everything from old radio comedy to Theatre of the Absurd, has been a major influence on shows like "The Simpsons" and "NewsRadio" (which is where the quote in the title comes from). Creator Jay Sommers wrote every episode with his story consultant Dick Chevillat, and instead of bland sitcom scrapes and sentimentality, they filled their scripts with satire, meta-humor and outright weirdness. No one can forget the various ways the characters noticed the opening credits, or the fact that most characters can hear the fife music playing under Oliver's rants about "The American Farmer," or the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Ziffel think a pig is their son (something that is taken for granted by everyone except Oliver).

The show started out fairly normal in season 1, turned weird and wonderful in season 2, and by season 3 was at its peak, with memorable episodes like "The Rutabaga Story" and the two-parter where Arnold (yes, the pig) gets a chance at Hollywood stardom. Highly recommended, but be warned: this is weird stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars MGM, what is your problem?? January 7, 2007
Format:DVD
Green Acres has to be the funniest comedy ever and it should be no surprise that I have all of the episodes on video. I also have all 3 of these dvd sets. Which makes me wonder why cant MGM get off their idiotic butts and release more of these. Folks, just look at the release dates of these sets. They make us wait well over a year for another set of these to come out. Season 3 came out in December 2005, 13 months ago. I see all of these box sets of series in their entirity which were lame compared to Green Acres. Reality shows get box sets, tv series of today are released almost immediately when the seasons are over and yet, MGM keeps jerking us Green Acres fans around. Has anyone tried writing to them on their website? Has anyone ever gotten an answer from them? I think they give us the standard "due to vast volumes of mail we receive, we cant answer individual letters." Yeah, right. They used to have a phone number which I tried calling but all I got was an answer machine. Now their phone number is a Best Buy telephone number. You would have better luck talking to a wall instead of talking to one of their representatives. They dont know a thing about when season 4 will come out. It is totally ridiculous for the delay and I am not shy about saying so. MGM, put some Green Acres product out. Seems like they sold well and it would be foolish of you guys not to put out the other 3 seasons. Thank you.

Thanks for the DVD release of the Third Season of Green Acres, but what about the final three seasons?? It doesn't seem like MGM is in a hurry to finish releasing the show on DVD does it?? By comparison, Paramount will soon release the sixth season of The Andy Griffith Show on DVD. Green Acres remained consistently funny throughout the six seasons it aired on CBS and there were many worthwhile episodes during the last three seasons that are well-deserving of a DVD release. I for one hope it happens very soon!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S SEASON 4 ALREADY?!!! May 28, 2007
Format:DVD
"Green Acres" was THE BEST sitcom of the 60s. The writing was way ahead of its time and the casting was right on target. Eva Gabor is the most underrated comedic actress of her time. She was sheer genius. And I can't imagine any one else playing Oliver than Eddie Albert! (Well maybe Bob Newhart ...) Where is Season 4? It's been a year and a half, for God sakes!

Mistake in Product Details
Green Acres started in the 1960s, the decade when B&W were still commonly used. That didn't seem to be the case, though. It seemed this rural comedy had always been in color throughout the entire run and I don't remember ever having seen an episode in black and white.
