The star studded list of guests include James Cromwell, Billy Barty, Brett Somers and many more. Even after all of the years, Barney Miller still remains as fresh and funny as it did when it was a staple of television viewing.

Shirley Jones stars in the fourth and final seson of everyones favorite music family, The Partridge Family. growing up this was a staple show for many people as the mix of comedy, romance, and music made Sean Cassidy a huge star and made the show a pop culture smash. I still remember Partridge Family lunch boxes and other collectors items. The 3 disc set contains all 22 episodes and contains the arrival of Ricky Segall as the little boy next door who irked many fans. the great Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce added a much needed breath of fresh air to the season.
Everyones favorite witch Samantha returns in the complete seventh season of Bewitched.
All 28 episodes are here of the beloved comedy that features Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha, a witch who fell in love with and married a mortal man named Darren (Dick Sargent). This pairing did not sit well with most of Samantha’s family who show up often with hillarious results. The 7th season contains a landmark episode called Sisters at Heart which was written by a tenth grade class and dealth with the issue of racisim. A solid set that paved the way for the final season to come, this show is a true classic.
