I am so Happy to final own the whole series and finally have seen every episode of Diff'rent Strokes and though not the strongest of the seasons but still had some great episodes and sadly the series ended without a series final wrapping things up but thanks to Shout Factory! I can enjoy the series from start to finish....(side note: lol if only shout could finish off Webster lol)....
