    Good news for fans of Petticoat Junction, the complete first season is going to be released mid-December, according to this post on TVShowsOnDVD: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Petticoat-Junction-Season-1/10312 . Many of these episodes haven't been seen since they aired back in the 60's, as the black and white episodes were never included in the syndicated package. Hopefully they'll continue the sets with season 2 and beyond.

    Thats pretty cool. As someone who has kind of a soft spot for this series, I lament not being able to see the B&W episodes. I think TV Land once showed them, but that was a long time ago. I might just spend the money to get this one.

    I could be wrong, but I don't believe the B&W episodes have ever been shown since they first aired, but maybe that's just the regular syndication package only, and TV Land was able to show them (I never had TV Land until about a year ago, so I don't know for sure). Anyway, some more news, they've released the extras:

    episodic intros for all episodes by Pat Woodell (orignial Bobbie Jo) and Linda Kaye Henning (Betty Jo)

    Interviews with Pat Woodell and Linda Kaye Henning

    Interview with Paul Henning (show creator) from 1990

    I assume the interview is the same one on the other release. If Pat and Linda do the episodic intros together, then that would be all new, as the other release of the first 20 episodes only had Linda Kaye Henning on the intros.
