Editor: be forewarned. It's a DVD-R on demand, it's not a manufactured DVD. It may not play on DVD burners and DVD drives in computers. This is not a criticism, but this is something that you should be aware of. This is why I haven't posted this on my site until now. A DVD-R? Come on! Do better than that!

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.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

The Heartwarming Classic Tv Series About A Tight-Knit Family With Eight Children Makes Its Highly-Anticipated Debut On Dvd

From Warner Home Video

DVD Features All Nine Season One Episodes in a Two-Disc Collector's Set

BURBANK, CA (January 10, 2012) - The Bradfords, one of television's best known and most loved families, are back for the first time to entertain viewers with their touching and memorable escapades on Warner Home Video's (WHV) DVD release of Eight Is Enough: The Complete First Season. Making its much-anticipated DVD debut on April 17, 2012, after long-standing requests from fans, Eight Is Enough is the top-rated classic television series that chronicles the lives of columnist Tom Bradford (Dick Van Patten), his wife and their eight children. Eight Is Enough: The Complete First Season will be comprised of all nine episodes from the show's first season on two discs. The DVD set will retail for $24.98 SRP.

Eight Is Enough is the enormously successful series that focuses on the Bradford family, an endearing clan of eight children and their parents who reside in suburban Sacramento, California. Tom, the patriarch of the family, is a newspaper columnist for the Sacramento Register, and their mother, Joan (Diana Hyland), is a busy homemaker. Their large household, which is always run with a lot of love and humor, is the source of their endless sometimes comic, sometimes dramatic exploits.

The Bradford kids vary in ages and personalities. Each one couldn't be more different than the next. The youngest, Nicholas (Adam Rich), is an adorable and precocious eight-year-old. Tommy (Willie Aames) is a charming and handsome teenager with rock-star looks. Fifteen-year-old Elizabeth (Connie Needham) is a graceful beauty with enviable long locks. Next is Nancy (Dianne Kay), a sweet, sunny blonde. Susan (Susan Richardson) is the athletic one. Joanie (Laurie Walters) is an aspiring actress. Mary (Lani O'Grady), the oldest Bradford girl, is a pre-med student. Last but not least is heartthrob David (Grant Goodeve), the eldest of the kids, who no longer lives at home but is deeply entwined in the lives of his siblings.

Eight Is Enough premiered on ABC in 1977 and became an instant hit with viewers. The top-rated show was based on a book by the same title, written by Thomas Braden, a syndicated newspaper columnist who also had eight children. The series pilot, included in this release, featured Star Wars star Mark Hamill in the role of eldest brother David, with Kimberly Beck as Nancy and Chris English in the role of Tommy. Eight Is Enough aired for five successful seasons.

"Eight Is Enough resonated with so many viewers because it offered something for everyone. With such a wide-ranging cast, there was always at least one character for everyone to relate to," said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. She added, "It was a show that shared a lot of humor but would also tackle some very serious subjects. It touched the hearts of viewers with its unforgettable storylines and talented actors. Family dynamics can be complicated, especially with eight kids, but no matter how chaotic things got in the Bradford household, this is the family so many of us wish we had grown up in. Eight Is Enough: The Complete First Season is a must-have for anyone who appreciates great TV."
