First of all, the series itself is a very amusing comedy, and in my opinion, well worth the purchase. I found the picture and sound very good; and AMAZON was at its usual standard: just great.

This series would be considered simplistic by todays" video game" standards, but I find it comfortably entertaining. The episodes
story content continues from episode to episode, for instance the ongoing conflict with the head office that owns the local
(steam locomotive ) railway ( which happens to be the only way to get around in the valley). Gruff execs descend on the valley
repeatedly threatening to close down the line, only to be charmed by the locals. Kate runs the " Shady Rest " Hotel with her
crusty uncle and three daughters, providing the setting for the comedy. This series is "set" in the same valley as "Green Acres"
and shares some characters , but" Petticoat Junction" is "family oriented comedy" vs. "Green Acres" Monty Pythonesque
off the wall antics. Recommended for those that are entertained by nostalgic simpler times.

The best thing about this set is that while TV Land and DejaView have ran the color episodes throughout the late '90s and 2000s, the first two black-and-white seasons were never part of the syndication package, so unless you bought the Columbia House videos back in the '90s (which only contained 18 episodes from the first two years) you've never seen these!

CBS has remastered them beautifully so the transfers look stunning and there are episode introductions by Linda Kaye Henning and Pat Woodell (Betty-Jo and the original Bobbie-Jo, respectively).

There is a rustic charm about the black-and-white episodes that was lost when the series went to color and devolved into more wacky '60s comedy and musical numbers. Watch for Jeannine Riley as the original Billie-Jo. Her portrayal of the man-crazy eldest sister is spot-on and truer to creator Paul Henning's original vision for the character than the increasingly watered-down successors (Gunilla Hutton, Meredith MacRae) were in the role.
