    That would suit me fine; Sea Hunt would have been a day one purchase if they'd do the whole series in order. Maybe they should look for shows that only have 24 episodes in the first place??
    I guess in their very interesting business model, they are trying to emulate cable and local stations that do "24 hour marathons" of popular shows, usually on a holiday weekend. Perhaps they expect we will find a nice 24 hour chunk of time and put in their dvds and marathon them till we drop.
    But if any of us was possessed to do such a thing, I think we'd rather all have the entire series at our disposal and should we wish to actually sit there for a 24 hour stretch, we'd like to pick the episodes ourselves.
    I can only hope these sets are just testing the waters for these particular shows, and that season sets will be forthcoming. I'm disappointed for now--they sure have some good shows to offer! But I don't think like best-of sets and I think the majority of forum members don't care for them either.

    I could live with that. However, when we start hearing about 24 episodes, then 60 episodes, one gets the idea that there hasn't been a plan developed to release all of the episodes in any kind of order, or any attempt to avoid double dipping. I hope I'm wrong about all of this.

    I don't care for "best of" Box sets. I prefer Entire series. "Best of" Sets often leave out important episodes that often happened because of one thing or another. For example the Official Best of Lassie set left out the episode that explained how the dog wound up switching ownership from Timmy to the Forest Rangers. (Timmy's Father got a Business Oppurtunity in Australia, unfortunately that Country had a Quarentine Law that was too strict to bring Lassie, so she was left behind). I'd rather have the whole nine yards.

    I agree. That's what Image used to do when they started putting out tv on dvd. They started with the Twilight Zone sets and I Spy sets of episodes in random order until apparently enough people complained.
    Has anyone tried to contact TGG regarding this? They have several email contacts on their website.

    Sea Hunt has been around before on DVD as a set but I am not sure how many episodes. It was from a mob who sold TV series and old films. It might have been Vintage Playhouse.I haven't seen the name around lately but that doesn't mean much.

    Going by the In The Heat of the Night episode listing, no episodes from the first season that has already been released are being repeated on the new box set.
    With any luck, no episodes from the two Bat Masterson first season releases will get repeated, either.

    Well, If they are going to split releases between small best-of then these box sets, it's going to confuse people.
    But it does solve the lop-sided box set.

    If we can somehow get all the episodes from these shows (Sea Hunt and Bat Masterson), I'll be getting these releases.

    I'm interested in purchasing both Bat Masterson and Sea Hunt but not interested in Best of's at all. So I will pass on these and purchase season sets if and when they are released.

    How in the name of time can an entire season be placed on a single disc? That's impossible, isn't?! Surely this is an (unintended) error. Is there a prior precedent for this? If a "serious" DVD release of SEA HUNT is pending them I am certainly in.

    It will probably be more like 4 or 5 disks. If Amazon does not have the number of disks from the manufacturer they will put in 1 until they do get that info.

    Great News About An Official DVD Release Of Sea Hunt, It Was About 45 Years Ago That It Was Last On The TV Over Here. Pre Ordered It Yesterday, There Are 5 Discs In Each Series And At 50 Bucks It Will Put The Bootleggers At Amazon Out Of Business As Far As Sea Hunt Is Concerned.

    Surely someone will be getting the SEA HUNT or BAT MASTERSON 24 hour marathon "preview" editions due out this Tuesday and we will be better able to ascertain the actual quality of the video transfers used.
    If they are as good as the Shout! Factory DENNIS THE MENACE tv series DVD sets then I will be happy. If they are in better condition fully restored and digitally remastered I will be even happier. But at such a cheap price how good could they really be?
    I have preordered all four seasons but I am ready to bail out if this proves to be a disappointment.
    The suspense mounts!

    I'm waiting for the reviews before I order my copies. If they come out positive, I will get a set with my "Santa Money". :D
    Let's see a release of Ripcord next! :tu:

    When Bat Masterson ran on Encore Westerns a while back, I remember the video quality being pretty good. However, I don't remember if they were uncut.

    If Sea Hunt matches the quality of Bat Masterson, I will be happy on that issue and I hope both series are released uncut. With a small company like this, I have more of a concern about quality. Car 54 was released by a smaller company at a reasonable price, so it can happen. I plan to get both of these releases if the reviews are positive.

    And I'm with you on Ripcord, William.

    Both Bat Masreson & Sea Hunt should be about 25/6 mins each. Masterson had runs on the now defunct ,I believe, Lone Star Channel & Encore westerns in recent years.The Lone Star versions were cut but the Encore were uncut. Sea Hunt also ran on another channel some years back & the versions I have seen were uncut. Both were good quality prints.
