"Leave it to Beaver: Season Three"

"Leave it to Beaver" was a sitcom set in the 1950s featuring the Cleavers, an all-American family in the suburbs. There were many lessons that were taught through the characters: Beaver (Jerry Mathers), brother Wally (Tony Dow), mother June (Barbra Billingsley) and father Ward (Hugh Beaumont).

The third season is considered the best of the series, and it features 39 episodes on six discs.

"Macgyver: The TV Movies"

"Macgyver" was a hit series on ABC that ran for seven seasons, beginning in September of 1985. The show starred Richard Dean Anderson as a secret agent who worked for the Phoenix Foundation, a think tank for the American government. He reminded viewers a bit of James Bond, minus all the high-tech gadgets. Macgyver accomplished everything with a Swiss Army knife, chewing gum, a pack of matches and anything else at his disposal.

The two made-for-TV movies are "Lost Treasure Of Atlantis" and "Trail To Doomsday." Fans of the show have been waiting for this release.

"Metropolitan Opera Gala 1991 - 25th Anniversary at Lincoln Center"
