    Warner said they were looking at everything for their planned remastered MGM cartoon sets. I'd naturally assume Tom and Jerry will be part of that.

    Dave, thanks for that great DALLAS Season 10 news of the release date of January 13, 2009.

    It states that the 29 episodes of DALLAS Season 10 will be on 3 double-sided DVDs. WHV are putting FIVE episodes on each side of the discs?? Won't the picture quality be very inferior to previous DALLAS seasons where Seasons 1 - 8 had 3 episodes on each side per disc, and S9 had 4 episodes on each side per disc, but S10 will have 5 episodes on each side per disc??

    DALLAS Season 10 already has an inferior picture quality because in 1986 and onwards TV shows were transfered from 35mm film to video tape which resulted in a significant loss in resolution.

    You're welcome for the news; I just updated that post with a small pic of the box art.

    As far as why are they stuffing so many eps onto so few discs (and APPARENTLY - not sure if this is accurate yet - doing away with extras) with this release, I'm sure it all comes down to budget. On the other hand, if video quality was already "inferior" as you describe, maybe they figured that doing this on more discs wouldn't affect the video quality, and that 3 double-sided discs is all they would need after all.

    Thanks for the news on The Waltons, Dave - as you know, I've been awaiting that announcement. Nice there's going to be a bonus featurette too.

    That third person asking about Animaniacs 4 was asking what the deal was but he answered it still the same with "no plans". That was my question as well. Was it due to low sales on the other volumes or some other issue.
