Video Review of Eight is Enough the Complete First Season

I recorded this last week and slowly put it together. I am still new-ish to this medium and it took me some time to put together. I really love this show and this DVD is just what the doctor ordered for fans of classic retro TV. I hope that comes through in this short review.

As always, the video format and all that fun stuff is a work in progress. If you have any video or animation skills though and would like to send me some advice or help with anything, please email me at You can subscribe to the Retroist YouTube channel here. More videos from people who are not me should be coming soon to the site, so keep watching.

  1. Hey, I have to say I really enjoy how you do these! I had all sorts of thoughts (my producer instincts kick in), but after watching it again, I think it’s great!

    BTW – I hope you are getting those DVDs free from the studios to review…

    Great pocket review. Just about the right length. 3-5 minutes is perfect for this sort of thing.

    This show was a staple in my family growing up in the 70’s, we never missed it! I bought the complete first season on DVD at Walmart last week for $21.97. And we’ve since watched them all. Some CLASSIC TV here! I love the ~5min intro scenes (typically an interaction between Nicholas and his Dad). My wife found the pants height of Dick Van Patten pretty funny (One of the things you don’t notice or pay attention to as a kid) I guess hiking your pants up was a 70’s thing … lol.

    Great stuff! Can’t wait for season 2.

  4. Great vid, Retroist. I didn’t actually get into this show until I was a young adult and caught the reruns after school during the 80s.
