—–Take off your coat, and let our favorite mom welcome you home again! Donna Reed was the girl-next-door who became America’s mom. As Donna Stone, she was always there to make everything all right with a smile, a kind word, or some great advice. Along with pediatrician husband Alex, daughter Mary, son Jeff, and later, adoptee Trisha, the Stone family delivered classic, heartwarming, all-American entertainment. When we step into the Stone house we smile, relax, and want to stay awhile. And now it’s your chance to stay as long as you’d like! The Complete Seasons 1-5 of The Donna Reed Show includes over 80 hours with Donna’s family and friends. If you’ve been looking for a show to call home, you’ve found it.

—–The sixth season of “Outlander” sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina – and perhaps most significantly – during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which – as Claire knows all too well – is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge. They must now defend this home – established on land granted to them by the Crown – not only from external forces, but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care. For the Frasers and their immediate family, “home” is more than simply a site in which they live: it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives.
