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.

Please put Eight is Enough on DVD. It is the best show. I loved watching it when I was growing up. All the other shows are on DVD. Why is it taking so long for this to be available?
