Oliver Douglas (Academy Award nominee Eddie Albert) is a well-read lawyer who has had enough of the hustle and bustle of New York, so he pulls up stakes to settle down in a more pastoral setting ... much to the dismay of his glamorous wife Lisa (Eva Gabor, The Rescuers), whos more accustomed to life in The Big Apple than on a small farm. Having said "goodbye, city life", the Douglases must contend with their new surroundings: a bucolic world of slapstick, silliness, Arnold Ziffel ... and dont get us started on one of televisions most recognizable theme songs!

THOUGHTS: Genuinely good comedy is timeless. This show is one of those oddballs that truly defies pinning down. Sure, the hairstyles & clothing peg it as a product of the 60's, yet the non-specific bucolic locale and the frequently downright bizarre nature of this series transcend the hippy & psychedelic trappings which hopelessly bogged down so many other shows of the era. Of the country-fried comedies of the time, (Petticoat Junction & Beverly Hillbillies being the other two), GREEN ACRES is far and away my favorite. Brilliantly written & acted. Versatile actor Eddie Albert makes for a bemused & amusing leading man, playing the eternally confounded, confused and frustrated Olivahhh Douglas. Blonde Hungarian beauty Eva Gabor is his well-meaning, supportive but ultimately clueless wife, Lisa. And then there's the gang of Hooterville regulars: the Ziffels, Hank Kimball, Mr. Drucker, Eb, the Monroe 'brothers' and of course, that jovial corn-fed con artist, Mr. Haney. A wonderfully witty, laugh-out-loud series which often dabbled in the surreal, and frequently broke the 4th wall. GREEN ACRES would almost certainly have lasted longer if CBS hadn't gone through with their foolishly absurd "rural purge" in the early 70's. (“Of all the stupid…!”)
THE DVD SET: The good eggs at Shout!Factory present the entire 6-season GREEN ACRES show in its entirety. All the episodes look & sound great. The picture is mostly clean and crisp. The audio is clear and level. Bonus content includes a "Making of..." retrospective featurette, vintage interviews with Eddie & Eva appearing on the Merv Griffin show, an audio commentary track on the pilot episode, and several episodes of the classic Granby's Green Acres radio show, which (for those who don't know) was the inspiration for the GREEN ACRES TV series. If you're a fan of this show then THIS SET is what you've been waiting for. Those, like me, who bought the original releases from MGM but got pitchforked when those halfwit hayseeds gave up after season three, will just have to knuckle under and re-purchase those first three again, as seasons 4-6 are not being sold individually at this time. :-( I will admit to being bummed that Shout! didn't go one step further and offer the whole shebang in hi-def as a deluxe Blu-ray set, but I'm honestly just thankful that someone picked up the rest of the seasons and finished releasing them for us fans.
