This past week, Time Life released a pair of online-exclusive items for sale, centered around The Jackie Gleason Show. The first one, a 10-DVD set sold for $99.95 SRP (broken into "5 Easy Payments of $19.99 [each]"), focuses on the 1966 show of that name, which was in color. The other, a deluxe release with 25 DVDs that sells for $199.90 SRP ("5 Easy Payments of $39.98 [each]") has all the same material, plus additional material that includes lots of laughs from the black-and-white '50s TV show of the same name! Below is the breakdown on what you'll find in each set. Our thanks to longtime reader Greg Brobeck for being the first to email us about these items:
