Sgt. Bilko: The Phil Silvers Show - The Summer: The Long-Awaited DVD Release of 'The 1st Season'


5-DVD set comes out in July, packed with tons of extras!

    This classic TV gem follows the fast-paced antics of Sgt. Ernie Bilko (Phil Silvers) as he attempts to swindle, bluff and flatter his platoon and his fellow comrades at the Ft. Baxter Army Post in the wilds of Kansas. The camp is supposedly run by Colonel Hall, but it's Bilko that calls the shots! Along with the other sergeants from the mess hall, Bilko is continually at war with Colonel Hall, who is desperately trying to put a stop to the gambling Bilko is running.

    For the first time ever on DVD, relive the entire hilarious, Emmy award-winning first season of Sgt. Bilko: The Phil Silvers Show. Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko is one of the most identifiable comic actor/TV personas from classic comedy television! This 5-disc collection contains an army supply of special features, including the original live pilot, audio commentaries, cast commercials, original openings, a "Lucy Show" episode featuring Phil Silvers, and all 34 gut-busting episodes which have been remastered for optimal picture quality.
Back in 2006 CBS/Paramount released a 3-disc "50th Anniversary Edition" with 18 classic episodes...but today the studio has announced that Sergeant Bilko: The Phil Silvers Show - The 1st Season will come to DVD on July 27th. This new 5-disc set contains the extras described in the studio description above; note that the participants for the Audio Commentaries include George Kennedy and Allan Melvin, the episode of The Lucy Show is "Lucy and the Efficiency Expert," and the commercials include 2 from Camel and one from Pontiac (per studio-provided info). Pricing isn't available yet. Video is full screen, audio is English mono, closed captioning is included, and the run time provided is 882 minutes (timing may be subject to correction). Here's an early (small, low-res) look at the front box art for this long-awaited set, but it may not represent the final version of the cover:
