Green Acres

In 1998, Columbia House put out the a very good collection of Green Acres episodes on VHS tape.

Unfortunately, they discontinued the set prior to completing the series. The quality of the tapes were superb and they were uncut, without any commercial breaks. There was one MAJOR bad point though...the episodes were in no particular order.

Without a doubt, the best release to date is the DVD collection put out by MGM. The quality is extremely good, each volume is a complete season of episodes. Two problems...no extra features (not even foreign language subtitles), and as of date, MGM has only released three volumes/seasons. They seem to have dropped the ball on releasing seasons 4, 5, or 6.

Volume 1Season 1
Volume 2Season 2
Volume 3Season 3
