The Facts of Life DVD Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a complimentary DVD to help facilitate my review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Mill Creek Entertainment is chock full of great DVDs, some of which are TV shows we used to love from the past. One of my all-time faves as a young girl was 'The Facts of Life.' I don't remember wanting to 'be' anyone (except maybe The Bionic Woman), but if I had to pick someone I really thought was cool, it would be Jo. She was a tough girl, and knew about motorcycles. ;)  Plus, I loved the theme song...sing it with me! :)

When the boys you used to hate you date,
I guess you best investigate
The Facts of Life
The Facts of Life!

Recently we were sent Seasons 1 & 2 on a DVD to review. All the old favorites were there, and memories of being a carefree child with nothing better to do than catch a show I liked on TV came crashing through. I love fun thoughts like that, and sometimes all it takes is a little something to jog your memory, like a cool DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment.

If you're looking for most any old TV show, chances are good they've got it. They also have a ton of movies, all of which are easy to search through via the different categories, or the convenient search engine (if you already know the name of the movie/show/series you're hoping to find). It's your one-stop convenience shop for entertainment (and movie night!).

Be sure to check out the site here. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.  One lucky winner gets The Facts of Life (Seasons 1 & 2) on DVD. US entrants only.
