Cinema Sentries and Warner Archive have teamed up to give one lucky reader the opportunity to win Eight is Enough The Complete Second Season.
Based on the book by syndicated newspaper columnist Thomas Braden, a real-life parent of eight children, Eight is Enough is a family drama, although it offers a good deal of laughs, that ran for five seasons on ABC from 1977-1981. The series centers on the lives of newspaper columnist Tom Bradford (Dick Van Patten) and his children David, Mary, Joanie, Susan, Nancy, Elizabeth, Tommy, and Nicholas, whose birth order can be remembered by the phrase "Dumb Martians Just Sit Nearby Eating Tender Noodles."
This season also saw the introduction of Sandra "Abby" Abbot (Betty Buckley) as the eventual matriarch of the family after actress Diana Hyland, who played Tom's wife Joan for four episodes, left the series due to illness.
