Father Knows Best - General 'Wide' Retail Release for 'Season 5,' Starring Robert Young


DVD re-release from Shout! Factory will hit stores in April

In August 2010, Shout! Factory released a DVD set for Father Knows Best - Season 5. However, it was only available online, via the studio's website store, as a part of a program called "Shout! Select" at the time.

Note that back then, the phrase referred to DVD releases of TV shows and movies which could only be bought via the Shout! online store. The term fell into disuse by the studio for a while, then was recently revived to be used for a new Shout! Factory program: "Shout! Select" currently refers to a lineup of movie releases which the studio feels, in their own words, are "enduring cult favorites and unheralded gems.."

As the original use of the "Shout! Select" phrase fell into disuse, so the titles released under that old program also became discontinued. Some items, though, still have fans looking to buy those titles! The result? Shout! has decided to re-release a couple of these, and out to stores "wide" at traditional general retail. One of them is Father Knows Best - Season 5.

The set will be available April 11th. The price hasn't been provided so far, but the old release clocked in at $39.99 SRP...so the new one ought to be in the same general price range (possibly a bit higher, in order to achieve the wider distrbution? we don't know as of this writing). Amazon.com is taking pre-orders, and they show the package art below.

Curiously, the new package says at top this will be a "6-DVD Set," whereas the 2010 package said at top it was a "5-DVD Set." We're not sure what's different this time; perhaps there's a typo? Or maybe the studio is simply spreading the episodes out among more discs, for better quality? We frankly don't know as of this writing, nor do we know about if there are also plans for Season 6 to go from "Select" to "wide." But stay tuned and we'll update you, if we find out anything more!
