Growing up, The Beverly Hillbillies TV show (1962 to 1971) was never under my radar. And just see an episode here and there on TV.

But pick up season 1&2 DVDs on the cheap, and this show is not half bad. One would think that this would be a dum down show with alot of "fish out of water" innuendos, but it is kind of not.

The show star Jed Clampett (Buddy Ebsen) who is head of family bring a good deal of common sense into whacky situations created by other members of family. And that formula is what make the show enjoyable to watch as it reached #1 TV show rating two years running.
