Please, don't get me wrong here. I don't hate The Beverly Hillbillies. But, with that said, I cannot believe that this "one-note-joke-of-a-show" (about a seriously dysfunctional culture clash) that pit the "aw-shucks" ignorance of country bumpkins against life in the fast-lane of modern-day Beverly Hills society, actually lasted for 9 whole seasons.
This 5-DVD collection contains 27, b&w episodes from The Beverly Hillbillies' 3rd season (1964). Yes. I will admit that there was some funny stuff in several of these episodes. But, far too often, it all came across as being just "too dumb for words". And, because this was all tied into its "one-note-joke" factor, its situations, though good-natured, quickly became annoyingly predictable and downright tiresome after only a short while.
Personally, I don't think that this show's off-the-wall humour holds up very well, 50 years down the road. But, hey, that's only my opinion. If you happen to be a big fan of this show, then I'm certain you'll think otherwise. And, yeah, that's cool.
