Green Acres - Head back to the farm in March

MGM has given fans of Green Acres a reason to celebrate with their announcement of Green Acres: Season 2, due to be released on March 8th, 2005.

When it comes to classic TV, "Green Acres" is the place to be! Head back to Hooterville for the complete second season of this riotous rural frolic. Eddie Albert stars as Oliver Wendell Douglas, the esteemed attorney who trades the rat race of Times Square for farm livin' and fresh air. In turn, his elegant Park Avenue wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) must give up Manhattan's fashion stores for Hooterville's barn chores.all in the name of love! Together they bring a hilarious touch of class to America's most lovable country comedy. So say goodbye to city life, and hello to the simple life..."Green Acres," we are there!

All 30 episodes of the second season will be released in a 2 disc set (double-side, dual layer) with a full frame (1.33:1) picture, and an English mono soundtrack (with closed captions). Expect to pay a discounted price from the $29.98 price suggested by the studio.

Fans of the series have wondered if they would see another release for the series. After the release of season 1 in Jan, 2004, the studio was quiet on plans for season 2, and with the impending sale of MGM to Sony Pictures, people wondered if MGM would continue to release titles. It's good to know that the sale of the company won't affect their output of TV sets.

Finally, a look at the cover art:

Anyone a fan of this show? I've just discovered it recently after a respected friend said how great it was.

I hope they speed up the release schedule in the future. Waiting over a year between seasons is just too long.

strong agreement to both posters.

Last week my daughter and I just gave up and started watching the cut shows on TV Land.
