Editorial Reviews

TV's ALL-TIME FAVORITE MOM IS BACK IN A DELUXE SET OF RARE EPISODES NOT SEEN IN DECADES!

For nearly a decade, THE DONNA REED SHOW defined the great American family situation comedy with a believable blend of heart and humor.
 
Starring Academy Award-winning actress Donna Reed (From Here To Eternity, It's A Wonderful Live), as homemaker Donna Stone, Carl Betz as her pediatrician husband Alex, Shelley Fabares as daughter Mary and Paul Petersen as son Jeff, THE DONNA REED SHOW is an iconic slice of 1960s Americana that attracted a whole new generation of fans when it was rebroadcast on Nick At Nite and TV Land in the 1990s and 2000s.

(THIS IS THE LONG AWAITED SEASON 4 OF THE DONNA REED SHOW. I spoke directly with MPI and they stated that what you are purchasing/pre-ordering in this listing, IS in fact all 39 episodes of Season 4 on 5 discs. The release of Season 5 will be sometime in 2012, as MPI has the rights to do this season also. As for the last 3 seasons-6,7 and 8- Donna Reed's family is working on getting the rights and having these made to dvd sets as well- but that is HOPEFULLY in the future.)

Donna Reed would have celebrated her 90th Birthday on January 27th of this year 2011, and instead of her getting gifts from her loving fans, WE FANS got the gift with the release of Season 4 of The Donna Reed Show! Wow! What a gift! Huge Thank You's go to The Estate of Donna Reed and Tony Owen, Donna's children- especially Mary Owen- who works relentlessly to get the rest of The Donna Reed Show seasons on dvd for us fans, and MPI! MPI has informed me that this is the BEST copy they could make of this Season 4- made from the original film and as sharp and gorgeously detailed as we have never seen! MPI is known for their great restorations of some of the best television shows, including another favorite of mine- Here's Lucy. Their dvd's are pristine! On top of all this, I'm hoping they include extra's- which they almost always do. What a great Holiday gift to all of us! This December we will be enjoying all 39 episodes of this Season 4, that we have all waited so long to see on dvd! THANK YOU TO ALL!

As usual, Donna was nominated for an Emmy- Outstanding Performance By A Lead Actress In A Series this Season 4. I always thought Donna Reed's performance was so natural in this series, because like Donna Stone, the real Donna Belle Reed was raised on a farm in Iowa.

Even if you watched Donna Reed on Nick-at-nite,you didn't see these episodes. Don't hesitate - those of use who saw these shows back in the 60s know how good they are. You will not be disappointed. Donna does not disappoint!

The first thing I'd like to do in this review is clarify exactly what we're getting in this release. There has been some confusion as to just exactly what this release is all about. Because MPI and the Reed/Owen estate have decided to name this the "The Lost Episodes", consumers are confused as to whether this is just a compilation of random Season 4 installments--rest assured it's not. ALL 39 episodes from the series' fourth season which aired on ABC during 1961-62 are included, UNCUT and restored. They are of much better quality than the previous releases by Virgil Films who put out Seasons 1-3 in 2008-09. (NOTE: Check out the screen captures I uploaded in the Images section of this product). MPI is a much more professional company--just look at that gorgeous cover art! Yes, when it comes to MPI you CAN judge a DVD set by its cover! The 5 discs are housed in a clear plastic case just like MPI's wonderful sets of "Here's Lucy".

These episodes have not been part of the "Donna Reed" syndication package since the 1970s and were never seen on Nick@Nite when they aired the show from 1985-94. One of the most sought-after episodes where Shelley Fabares performs "Johnny Angel" is included--an outstanding artifact from the early '60s.

Many episodes have the original sponsor openings and closings intact. Several episodes are presented in their COMPLETE form with all original commercials and sponsor openings and closings so the viewing experience is exactly as though you were watching it on ABC in prime time in 1961!

The set includes a wealth of bonus features including vintage promos and commercials and new interviews with Paul Petersen and Shelley Fabares as well as Stu Phillips who produced the songs Paul and Shelley performed on the show.

Thanks to MPI and Mary Owen, this is the best Christmas present ever for Donna fans!

What the sub-title "The Lost Episodes" is probably referring to is that nearly this entire season was skipped by Nick at Nite through every run of the series in the '80s and early '90s. Time after time, they skipped from season 4's episode #2 ("A Rose is a Rose") to episode #2 of season 5, ("Mrs. Stone and Dr. Hyde"), thus skipping Mary's debuting "Johnny Angel" on the February 1, 1962 episode (about a week after it debuted on Billboard's Hot 100). After that, Nick skipped all of Season 6 and 7 (with the odd exception of "What Are Friends For?" which aired November 28, 1963, episode 6.11), skipping the half-dozen scattered episodes Shelley Fabares did after leaving the regular cast (a la Don Knotts on ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW) as well as most of Bob Crane's run as Dr. Dave Kelsey prior to HOGAN'S HEROES--jarringly resuming two years later with the first episode of Season 8, "Pop Goes Theresa" (9/16/65). So, should someone get the rights to issue seasons 6 and 7, they too could legitimately be billed as "Lost Episodes."

Had pre-ordered my DVD set of The Donna Reed Show Season 4 and it arrived today. Just in time for Christmas! I have watched a few of the episodes and spot checked the discs for quality and I am happy to report that the audio and video quality do not disappoint. You will happy in buying this set. The special features are a plenty and makes it that much more to enjoy. The cover photo of The Stones and the title typeset on the cover stay true to the early 1960s broadcasts of this wonderful TV show. And you will be pleased to know that there is a listing of the original date of broadcast for each episode inside the case. MPI you did a great job! Mary Owen thank you for putting so much time and effort into making this DVD release happen. I sure am looking forward to the release of the next season too!
