I just wanted to acknowledge and give a BIG thanks to Cindi Benson. Cindi has been a tireless and amazing supporter with her constant updates regarding Eight is Enough. If it hadn’t been for Cindi, the Eight is Enough cast and I would have been left in the dark about the progress of its release on DVD!
Thanks to all of you who took the time to vote and contact Warner Brother’s. It is now official, Season 1 of Eight is Enough will be available on DVD this April! You spoke, and Warner Brother’s finally listened! I emailed Grant, Connie, Dick and Willie yesterday. They were all so surprised and thrilled to hear the good news! They wanted me to let you know how appreciative they are for all of your efforts in making this a reality.
My son will finally realize that his “Stay at home Mom” did something more than carpool and laundry and was once a young chick! I am forever grateful to all of you who have kept the show in your hearts. So many wonderful memories come back to me and I can’t wait to revisit them again. The times that we shared during our five seasons together were priceless. It’s amazing to think how much has changed since the 70′s and early 80′s. We didn’t own cell phones or computers and many of us owned those huge dinosaur gas-guzzling cars. It’s hard to believe that the Bradford’s didn’t even own a dishwasher! Eight is Enough may show a little age, but I feel the show’s content and message is timeless!
Classic family television is still in demand, it holds it’s own when it is well written and touches the heart. It is my hope that future generations will enjoy watching the show as much as I enjoyed acting in it. I so vividly remember shooting a dinner table scene on the set. Dick looked at all of the cast and said, “One day you will look back on this and say, Those were the Good Old Days!” How right he was!!
Thank you for supporting and being part of my blog. I really enjoy reading all of your comments and I hope you continue to be entertained by my silly stories (especially when you are having a rough day at work!).
Lots of love and health this wonderful New Year!
Dianne AKA Nancy Bradford
