    Probably Tuesday! Thoughts?


    Gunsmoke? Bonanza? A Surprise?

    The only thing I can make a pretty good prediction on is that we won't see Rawhide, Laverne and Shirley, or Dynasty this soon. Plus, BH and PJ haven't had any new seasons remastered yet.

    Is there any chance CBS will go back to "The Untouchables" and show the 2-part pilot episode as presented on the Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse, as opposed to the version titled "The Scarface Mob?"

    Season 1 / Volume 1 has the 2-part pilot, including the intros by Desi Arnaz.

    I'm going to guess Bonanza season set 7 (which will start including some of the "lost" episodes, and Now and Again. Just so that CBS/Paramount can mix it up. James

    I know it's too much to ask but I really think it's about time CBS put back "Sgt Bilko" on

    I read CBS has the "Ownership Rights" to my two favorite Animated Shows, Hot Wheels & Skyhawks. Release these two and I'll be eating out of their hands. I don't care if you charge $500.00 for each show. Release them and I'll buy them! :D

    If this is similar to what I've seen on youtube, then I will pass. I would prefer to have the two-part episodes broken up and shown as presented on their original night of broadcast. Maybe sometime in the future.

    It looks like the big releases for April are only wide releases of BH and PJ. Seeing as how I bought these several months ago, just a little disappointing.

    I don't know what is on YouTube, but it is broken into 2 parts on Season 1 / Volume 1.

    Do they have the stupid "Scarface Mob" credits, or the original Desilu Playhouse credits?

    My recollection is that everything is as originally aired, including mention of Westinghouse.

    I looked at it last night. It has the original Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse opening series titles, then the original Desi Arnaz and Walter Winchell openings for both parts one and two, then goes into the regular Scarface Mob main titles and movie.

    Thanks, John. Doesn't sound like what I'm looking for. Too much of a damned purist, I guess.

    Barnaby Jones or Cannon would be really nice....but a huge surprise if that happens.

    Fingers crossed!

    It's a pity they're not more active in their MOD department, with a bit of luck we could've seen it all - and more - by now...
