information about The Sullivans
27 December 2006 | by maryjeffSee all my reviews

I have watched almost every episode of The Sullivans when it was on and have been quite disappointed throughout the years to see re-runs of so many different series BUT NOT of The Sullivans. Does anyone know if you can get the boxed DVD sets of the entire series? Unlike todays serials, The Sullivans was a series that showed good morals and values and a healthy clean-living family life, it also showed life before electronics, where kids knew how to occupy themselves without the need for 24 hour TV or electronic games, they were healthier, more active and much happier, where treats were given as rewards and not as an everyday norm.
