From the executive producers of My So-Called Life , the Emmy® Award-winning television series finally comes to DVD.

In 1987, we were introduced to a group of couples, of friends... thirtysomethings . A dream cast of characters that, from the very first episode, resonated with a nation of people who knew these people all too well. Michael and Hope Steadman, the suburban new parent poster children; Elliot and Nancy Weston, a couple whose marriage is falling apart; Gary Shepard, the perpetually twentysomething thirtysomething; Melissa Steadman, Michael s cousin who is a struggling artist; and Ellyn Warren, the driven but restless career-chaser.

thirtysomething channelled the consciousness of baby boomers into a running commentary on what it really meant to be on the cusp of success and failure, marriage and divorce, adulthood and parenthood. Every week the show blurred the lines between television and film, drama and comedy, hard reality and twisted imagination.

Episode Listing:

1. Pilot 2. The Parents Are Coming 3. Housewarming 4. Couples 5. But Not For Me 6. We Gather Together 7. Nice Work If You Can Get It 8. Weaning 9. I ll Be Home For Christmas 10. South By Southeast 11. Therapy 12. Competition 13. Separation 14. I m In Love, I m In Love, I m In Love, I m In Love With A Wonderful Gynecologist 15. Business As Usual 16. Accounts Receivable 17.

Firstly as fan of the series since I was 17 I have waited a long time to own this series on DVD, I could not wait for a region 2 release - the decision for this is not made by Shout Factory but MGM and is not planned as yet.

MULTI REGIONAL PLAYERS IN THE UK:
type the dvd model and make into google looking for the code to make your player a multi regional so it can play American DVDs, as a complete tecno-phobe I can assure you it is easy and I had to only replace 1 dvd player in the house to ensure I could watch the dvds in any room. Cheap players from £29.99 can be converted and currys website actually tell you the code to put in when buying the dvd player - cant be easier.

Thirtysomething has a loyal fan base and whilst most of us would have been grateful for just the series Shout Factory have compiled this box set with the love and respect this show deserves. Plenty of good commentries from both cast and crew, some interesting documentries and the 38 page booklet is all about the series and cast no full page adverts for any future releases in sight.

My concern was had the show dated? The fashion may have changed but the issues and emotions are the same, sure dating by leaving a message on an answer machine has been replaced with the internet but the apprehensions and lack of confidence ring true to all new and old singletons. Whilst in the 80's pressure was for women to return back to work Hope choose to stay at thome and the frustrations and rewards are played out during the whole series. Series one had some outstanding episodes, mainly the pilot, the parents are coming,i'll be home for Christmas, therapy and seperataion.

I had been watching for the release of this series, as it was ingrained in my memory. It was sympathetically made (rather than synthetic) a balanced cast (rather than all lip gloss and perfect hair) and GREAT scripts (rather than cliched faux mysteries) In other words if you love 'Desperate Housewives' you'll probably not enjoy this!

The series is very cinemtic in style, always tasteful and clever, and most of the characters become 'favourites' pretty quickly. There are no weak actors, and if I have to single out one Mel Harris is a delight to look at and listen to.

Patricia Wettig is of course now in 'Brother & Sisters', but one of the FEW real things about that rather simpering/sugery show. Ken Olin has also appeared in B & S, and stars in this, but despite this the scripts of this show give them much better parts.

What a pity American TV has gone backwards, and gives us too many 'beautiful people' now, and no 'real' people, sensitivity or warmth.

If you want a GREAT watchable series, buy this set ~ it brings back the fun and security of the 1980s.

I cannot wait for series 2!

I would have loved to have seen this as I remember it fondly from all those years ago.

This however has NO subtitles at all, so all those folks deaf and hard of hearing miss out altogether.

Furthermore as someone else has also pointed out the picture transfer isn't great either.

A missed opportunity in every respect. The makers of this travesty should be ashamed of themselves.

Like many reviewers of this series I had been waiting for the release of some DVDs for Thirtysomething but had only ever seen region 1 imports . Luckily , i read a review on Amazon which said how easy it was to reconfigure your DVD player , and do you know what? , it is that easy .
Thirtysomething is just as warm , well acted and entertaining as it was back then when I was thirty something .
My wife had never seen the series but loved the first series from episode 1 so we have now ordered series 2 .
That's a region 1 too but hey , it doesn't matter .
If you haven't found the review that explains how to change your DVD player , just type in your make and model on Google and you will find instruction on how to do it . It's only putting in a code . It's not technical .

I loved them a quarter of a century ago and it didn't take me long to get straight back into all that introspection..! I was delighted to see them released on DVD and will watch them on dark Autumn evenings when I have the house to myself and can wallow in nostalgia.

I have waited years for this TV series to come out on DVD. It was well worth the wait!The fashion has dated a little but the characters and story are so well written that it doesn't master. I LOVE this DVD!
Prompt postage, good communication.
