Movie Reviews

Sitcoms, adventure and variety shows rom TV's Golden Age
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 07/18/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The twelve single-side recorded DVDs in MILL CREEK's ESSENTIAL FAMILY TELEVISION contain episodes of 1950's and '60s sitcom and adventure series, plus some variety shows (Milton Berle, Ed Wynn, Eddie Fisher) and specials (Phil Silvers, Edgar Bergen). Besides the more commonly seen programs, there's samples here of some genuine TV rarities, like the Buster Keaton, Jim Backus, Dennis Day and Dennis O'Keefe shows. Video and audio transfer quality of these antique TV films is generally good.

All DVDs come individually stored in gloss-coated heavy paper sleeves that also provide program data and episode titles. The discs are housed in a space-saving easy-access storage box (front hinged door with two velcro closures). "Essential Family Television" is over 65 hours of classic TV from America's leading seller of value-priced DVD compilations, MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT.

Vintage TV fans are sure to enjoy SPIES & LIES, also from MILL CREEK. There's 50 episodes here from 11 rarely seen crime/action series.

Back when TV was NOT a Game Show
S. L. Swayze | Mesa, AZ United States | 08/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With the absolute garbage on television today these DVD sets are a godsend. You get one-hundred and fifty old television shows, at least 70 hours of quality entertainment! And here's what they don't tell you in any of the ads--many of these shows run the full half hour complete with all those woderful old commercials! See the brand new 57 Chevy or the top of the line Brownie camera. Or how about Efrem plugging the next episode of the FBI this Sunday night. Great, great stuff. There are other Mill Creek boxed sets of old television shows, and there worth every penny!"
