    Danny, the way "Five Days in the Death of Sgt. Brown" is currently available is as you had surmised: just like "The Priest Killer", in a separate movie package, edited together without the cliffhanger ending you mentioned. Therefore, it is quite likely that if we get one movie, we'll get both. It is only wishful thinking on my part that we could see The Bold Ones titles (I don't really expect to, for the reasons you mentioned). Sorry for diverting from the subject of this thread.

    I have a question. Just how expensive would it be to transfer something like the DA episode? It is only 1 26 minute episode. How much to transfer a 51 minute episode? I know if they used HD sourcing like Hawaii Fivo-O, Mannix, etc it would cost a good deal more. Is it really that expensive for one 26 minute or one 51 minute episode to be transferred? Anyone have an idea of how much for a 26 minute episode and a 51 minute episode transferred non HD like Cannon. How about a 26 minute episode and a 51 minute episode transferred HD like Hawaii Five-O?

    Thanks!

    I've heard the figure of $5,000 passed around before in regards to Universal programs. No clue if that's for a 25 minute episode or a 50 minute episode.

    That's the figure I have heard as well. And I believe its per show, regardless of running time, but of course I don't really know for sure.

    Are you sure? Because I have a freind who recorded all of the Ironsides from a run in Canada a few years ago and the episode ran as a regular 1-hour episode in the Ironside syndication package.

    I just watched this story on my "unofficial" set which is from Canada. It is shown in two parts as a regular "Ironside" episode. David Hartman and E.G. Marshall are given special credits with the "Ironside" regulars in a revised "Ironside" title opening for both parts. So if "Ironside" makes it to S6 on DVD in any area, the story will not be incomplete. It just means that the "Bold Ones" episode is presented like Pt. 2 of a regular 'Ironside" episode.

    Actually that's good news. So it means they did put both parts into the Ironside package after all so that we should get it if Madman gets that far. That makes sense. It's too bad that Universal never bothered to put that D.A. episode in the Adam-12 package. Or did they? Has anybody checked on that?

    I suspect that because "The D.A." was such a short-lived show and also long canceled by the time "Adam-12" went into syndication that it never occurred to them that there would be an episode that could have been put in the "Adam-12" syndication package with revised credits. "The Bold Ones" by contrast, lasted several years and was better remembered by all at Universal.

    Apologies for another off-topic post. When Ironside was in syndication in the 70's-80's, I recall that the two-part "...Sgt. Brown" episodes were presented just as Jack had mentioned. Since then, I've only seen the episode presented as a movie (though retaining the modified credits). The last time I saw this was roughly 3 years ago. In any case, I'm sure that we'll get both episodes, as I originally mentioned.

    Just wondering about another Jack Webb show, anyone think Project U.F.O. will get released?
    It only ran for two seasons (26 episodes.)

    We may not have to wait that long! A Dragnet Yahoo group list has some posts by someone named Matt Swintek who contributed the bonus material on the S2 Adam-12 set and is apparently involved with the bonus material for the S2 Dragnet set. He just posted a message to the group in response to a question about the original movie and said:

    "World Premiere: Dragnet 1966" is included in the set."

    So looks like we will be squaring things essential on "Dragnet" with this release! Also clarified is that the 29th episode pre-empted and not aired until S3 will be held back for that set.

    Hope he isn't providing the pilot, those Adam-12 promos in the season 2 set were in horrible shape (Still glad they were in there though).

    With the inclusion of the Pilot Movie, you can count me in to purchase this set!

    DRAGNET: SEASON 2 was a definite purchase for me anyway, but the inclusion of the pilot movie sweetens the package considerably!

    I'm subsequently hoping for Seasons 3 & 4 in the near future, and also hoping that the Jack Webb/Johnny Carson "Copper Clappers" skit from THE TONIGHT SHOW shows up on one of the sets as an extra.

    Apparenly, Shout did find the clip from Jack Benny's 2d farewell special and include it on the Dragnet 1970 release. Way to go Shout! I still hope for a Complete Series package, however.
