This past Friday, at their Facebook page, a longtime TVShowsOnDVD reader named E.G. Gammon asked StarVista/Time-Life about Mama's Family - The Complete 3rd Season
, writing for confirmation of a February 24th street date mentioned at one national retailer chain's site. The studio confirmed it for E.G., but we checked in with them directly to verify. You see, the 24th of that month is a Monday, and in-store release dates are always on Tuesdays. We can see where this particular studio might make that error, though, since their online studio-store releases are often on Mondays! So it's quite understandable for their Facebook person to say what they did.
However, StarVista/Time-Life does tell us that the actual in-store date for Mama's Family - The Complete 3rd Season
will be Tuesday, February 25, 2014
. Priced at $29.98 SRP, the studio tells us it will contain these features:
- Family History: A Classic "Family" sketch from The Carol Burnett Show, featuring Maggie Smith.
- Featurette - Mama's Family Tree: The Sprouts
- Mama Knows Best: A Mama's Family Cast Reunion featuring Beverly Archer, Ken Berry, Allan Kayser, Vicki Lawrence and Dorothy Lyman
It's not up for pre-order at Amazon yet, but stay tuned! In the meantime, here's the front cover art StarVista/Time-Life sent over. As you can see, it's the same key artwork as the first season individual set from this studio, just with different coloring. Our thanks to E.G. Gammon for e-mailing us about his Facebook post, which got the ball rolling on this story!
