EIGHT IS ENOUGH - The Complete Second Season Parts 1 & 2 (Made on Demand)

Both available now at WBShop.com


Part 1: Eight Is Enough began its first full season with a gaping hole in the center – the tragic loss of actress Diana Hyland, who played Bradford matriarch Joan. As the season begins, newspaper columnist Tom Bradford is now a widower and the Bradford clan is still healing. Thanks to the arrival of tutor Sandra Sue "Abby" Abbot (Betty Buckley), smiles come more quickly to the Bradford kids and love might just be in the air for Tom. While Cupid plays his games, the eight Bradford children mix humor and drama while confronting a host of life’s timeless travails as well as some contemporary controversies, from "trial marriage" and trial separations to real weddings, second mortgages and stolen holidays. Notable guests of the Bradfords found in this 4-Disc, 14-Episode collection include Alice’s Beth Howland, plus Don Johnson, Gerald McRaney, Will Geer and Robin Williams.

Part 2: The second half of Eight is Enough’s sophomore season sees Abby fully ensconced as the new lady of clan Bradford, while the crew carries on after their stolen Christmas (see Eight is Enough: The Complete Second Season Part One). The new year brings with it a host of new challenges and comedy as Nicholas sees a UFO, the kids engage in some risky business while the parents are away, Tommy buys a term paper, and Tom finds himself a faux Dear Abby for his paper. But when Abby suffers a horrible head injury, the whole family must come together to share some special memories to make sure the family’s newest member makes it through the night. And keep your eyes peeled for Partridge Danny Bonaduce among the Bradford’s guests in this 3-Disc, 12-Episode Collection.

Good episodes, but they sure have no respect for the show's fans like us - nickel & diming us like this to buy two sets of ONE season! My God! (I'll buy it, but MY GOD!!)

Glad I skipped the first season since they're switching to MODs.

It's multi disc, so that means they should be pressed.

I hope I'm not setting myself up for failure, but I'm hoping to eventually pick this up as a complete series at some point.

I know it will just be shrinkwrapping, but I would rather get it all in one swoop then waiting possibly years inbetween releases.

Got mine today. They are pressed as expected. I was surprised how much I'd missed this show all these years while watching the first season back in the spring, so as soon as this was announced I pounced on the order button.

If you add another archive title, you can take advantage of the WBWISH coupon which knocks $10 off.
Fortunately, there was a new title I was interested in that wasn't likely to be included in the BF sale next week, so worked out well.
