TV Shows I Own at Least One Complete Season of On DVD

by clydestuff | created - 30 May 2013 | updated - 16 Jun 2016 | Public

I've been collecting TV series for years. It's a rather expensive hobby sometimes, especially when you're trying to complete series that run for many years. These are all the shows I have at least one complete season on DVD. With this caveat: Some series have not had a complete season and may never get one for various reasons. These would include series like Ozzie and Harriet, My Living Doll, I'm Dicken's He's Fenster. In those cases if I have what is available they are listed. Absolutely none of these are bootleg. At this time this is still a work in progress.

I own four seasons of this show. This was actually a good series until Kirk Cameron made the producers clean up his character. That was the beginning of the end. I don't even want to get into Kirk Cameron's current homophobic lunacy. I'll probably add one more season, maybe two as I'd like to have the Leo Dicaprio Season.

This 1962 series only ran One Season and stars Gene Kelley in the role of Father O'Malley and Leo G. Carroll as Father Fitzgibbon and Dick York before he married Samantha.

I own the first two seasons but hope to add a couple of more. After about four seasons though, I found the plots became rather repetitious and unimaginative. Mostly dealing with Darrin's client of the week that he almost gets fired by Larry Tate over. No offense to Dick Sergeant but he was never able to capture the goofiness that Dick York brought to the role of Darrin. He always seemed way too uptight.

Four of the Five Seasons have been released. I own all Four and am hoping to complete this set.

No word on if Season Five will be released. It may not be because of the drastic casting change. Whitney Blake (Dorothy Baxter) and Don DeFore (George Baxter) were given the ax by way of having their characters shipped off to Baghdad. Yeah, you read that right. Hazel (Shirley Booth) and Harold (Bobby Buntrock) moved in with George's Brother Steve (Ray Fulmer), Barbara (Lynn Borden) and their daughter Susie (Julia Benjamin). I don't remember the final season, so I'm very curious about it. Here's hoping.

Only the first season is available so far and I bought it as soon as I could. I've watched the first eight episodes but I'd forgotten how good some of these stories were, and despite the medical advances we've had, the drama never loses it's impact.

When the first four seasons of this show were release for general retail sales, the prices on each season were very reasonable. Then Shout decided to make it an On Demand series only available from their web site. I just have a problem paying $40 for a season of shows that used to cost at the most $30. So I have yet to acquire the final two seasons but still might. This is one of those 50's series that I believe everybody should have at least one season of in their library.

Another jewel from Timeless who miraculously was able to piece together the entire series, some episodes from collectors who still had much of the series on 16 Millimeter.

So about halfway through the first season, Jonathan Harris begins to steal the show as Dr. Smith. There are those who thought this was a good thing. Not me. I saw a lot of great potential shown in the first few episodes that was never fulfilled. It didn't help that during the first two seasons, they were so land bound on single planets they just as well have never left earth. Still, it's a series from my childhood that I felt I must have and I own the complete set.

What happened with the DVD release of this series really irritates me. Fox owns the rights and released Season One complete for about thirty bucks (much cheaper now). I think it sold well enough, but for some reason only greedy executives can understand they decided to release Season Two in Volumes and jacked up the price to $40 for half a season. Certainly people were hesitant to buy part of Season Two seeing as how they could not fathom why one whole season could be released a lot cheaper than a half season. Studio Executives who failed to see their own complicity in this, took the fact that people saw through their shenanigans as a sign that nobody wanted to buy it and have not released and further episodes. I do own the Season and a half but i did not buy the half season until it was finally marked way down.

I'm glad to have this complete series in my library. Especially since it looked for a long long time like it was going to remain unfinished.

The great Donna Reed stars in one of the best family oriented sit-coms from the 50's and 60's. It ran for 8 seasons, and five seasons have been released. I own all five. The bad news is we may never see the final three seasons. The worst news is that Seasons one and two now appear to be out of print so if you don't have them and now want them, you'll have to pay the piper. My suggestion: Buy what you can afford of Seasons 3 to 5 and hope one and two are re-released. Just don't count on it.

The Girlfriend again. This time I had bought all but the last two seasons and probably will buy those when I can and watch the series myself.

There are many many episodes of this series in the public domain. I think I have over a hundred of them and the quality runs hot and cold. A few editions have been put out by the Nelson Family.

I'm probably one of the few who preferred this to Bewitched. I thought the gags were much funnier and clever, and it wasn't saddled with a husband saying "no witchcraft" or in this case "no genie stuff." I thought the smartest thing the show did was to finally let Roger in on Tony's big secret.

Bob Cumming has a robot. The Robot is Julie Newmar. I made an exception here for series I have a complete season of. This was released as a partial volume last year, and it may be all we ever get to see of the series since it was released as "The Official Collection Volume 1." Have yet to watch these, but I do look forward to it.

Anne Francis as a female detective. An under rated show from the sixties that certainly deserved to run more than one season. I guess some folks didn't take too kindly to a beautiful seductive woman running around Karate chopping and kicking the snot out of a bunch of criminals. The one season is available and one I picked up as soon as it was released.

I picked up Sanford and Son when it was released as a specially priced set. I think I bought the entire series for about $30 dollars. Checking right now, it's still available at that price. The packaging is that much but for $30 I don't care. I wish more series would be released this way (some have) so they would be more affordable.

Buffy is one of my favorite series ever. There's really not much to say here except that if you've never seen it, take the time to stream it on either Amazon or Netflix. Some of the first season shows are iffy, but once the series finds it's footing, I guarantee you'll be hooked and rewatch many of these great episodes over and over again. Buffy includes some of the best episodes ever done for series television. It was Netflix that led me to this show, so when I had the chance to grab the series on DVD at a discount I snatched it up.

What I like about series like The Love Boat is it gives you a chance to see lots of actors, actresses, and entertainers that you seldom see any more, or who have passed away. That always will be the main attraction. The stories are often hit or miss, and sometimes miss very badly. But every once in a while you'll get a gem. Two seasons have been released. I own both.

In case you didn't know, I guess they are going to come up with a rehashed version of Ironside in 2013. I don't know if anybody can top Raymond Burr, who I felt was much better in this role than in the Perry Mason role he labored in for so many years. I own three seasons, and consider myself lucky to have those. Four seasons have been released but Shout Factory has made acquiring this series ridiculously expensive. Try to find it used as I did for Season 3.

Really goofy series from the 80's. Great memorable theme song. Great relationship between Robert Culp and William Katt. Should have ran for more seasons but by the end I don't think the writers knew where they wanted to go with it. But I love it and own the complete series which can be had very reasonably.

This ran for one season back in the early sixties. I remember the series only vaguely but what do you expect. I was only eight. But it's one of those series I love to acquire because it's one you never thought would be released. This is only half a season, so it's an exception to my complete season criteria. No word on the release of the second half.

Out of necessity, another exception to my complete season rule simply because this is listed as Volume One and includes what is supposedly the best episodes of the First Season. I believe that's all we're going to get as it's been a while since this was released. Too bad. A really great series.

If you saw the recent movie based on this series, forget that and go back and watch the Real McCoy. Don Adams as Agent 86, Maxwell Smart and Barbra Feldon as Agent 99 spoof the spy movie craze of the sixties along with just about everything else. You could make a whole dictionary out of the catch phrases that came from this series, of which I own every episode.

I liked this show much better than it's later counterpart Green Acres. Oh, let's be honest. I hated Green Acres. But the laid back easy going understated comedy of this series just sort of clicked with me and still does. The show never seemed to go too far off the rails unlike the aforementioned Acres and even The Beverly Hillbillies. Only two complete seasons have been released and those are what I own.

Votes: 2,601

For my money, The Partridge Family was much better than another seemingly more famous series at the time, The Brady Bunch. I found the kids here much better because they just seemed more real. I think a lot of it can be attributed to the writers, who saw to it that unlike The Brady's, this clan wasn't sickenly sweet. I don't know if I put that the right way but maybe you'll know what I mean. Another way to look at it, the two younger kids, unlike Creepy Cindy from the Brady Family, were kept in the background the great majority of the time leaving Shirley Jones, David Cassidy, Susan Dey, and Dave Madden to carry the load. And the music wasn't that bad either. I own the whole series, but did we really need that extra kid in the final season?

More to come.
