On October 4, 1957, America met The Beaver. And the rest is television history. Now, the complete series, all six seasons of “Leave it to Beaver,” is out on DVD at The Shout! Factory (http://bit.ly/cpsdL9). In describing the lasting appeal of The Beav, New York Times TV writer Neil Genzlinger said that the show was full of “small, knowing moments”
(http://nyti.ms/9AD6AW). To this he adds: “Television was a much slower animal back then. You have to detox mentally to watch these shows, to lay aside your caffeine and BlackBerry addictions and be prepared to wait for your rewards.”
I’m ordering these DVDs right now.
