    Paramount has released seasons 2 & 3 on DVD are they planning on releasing season 1 or was MPI Ultimate Collections "Season 1"?

    from what's been said, seems like they won't put out Season 1 until they have released all the remaining seasons so not to tick off the Henning estate that helped put together the MPI sets.

    The MPI Collections are a bit tricky.

    To get the complete season 1, you have to buy both Ultimate Collections, and a separate Christmas themed disc to get all of the season 1 episodes, and by buying Ultimate Collection 2, you'll be doubling up on some episodes that Paramount eventually released on their "official" season 2 release.

    Paramount's episodes do look better, though, and that second Ultimate Collection is the only way to get the rest of the S1 Episodes.

    Both are cheap if you find the right sale on the 'net.

    To ay that the Paramount DVD sets "look better" then the MPI set is a bit of an understatement.

    I heard a nice surprise was coming. But I don't have a timetable.

    I'm just hoping either the 66-67 season is involved or....pershish the thought, a complete series box set.

    I'm seeing a lot of hints about some CBS releases on the board recently (Hillbillies, Brady sequels, Perry Mason movies). All very good news, and I wonder if they are all being released by CBS or whether CBS is doing even more licensing. Either way, I'm very happy to see the CBS stuff becoming unfrozen again after a really slow year for them.

    Truthfully after the VEI mega deal took Cannon, Barnaby Jones, and Matt Houston off the table, my remaining hope was that someone will finsih Hillbillies and My 3 Sons. If that happens, I would be more than content with what CBS has given us from their library. That's taking into account of course that I'm no great fan of westerns and that I've come to terms with the fact The Defender and Ben Casey are lost causes at this point.

    Now that Barnaby Jones is almost upon us, my new holy grail title that CBS owns is Love American Style, which will never be released because of the lack of original elements availability. What a shame.

    I know CBS is staying quite active with their FB page for The Beverly Hillbillies. I just can't imagine they would keep plugging the show if they weren't going to continue it.

    I just hope CBS doesn't ban the episode "The South Rises Again" in light of recent events (Confederate flag controversy), and refuses to include it on DVD/Blu-Ray.


    Warner Bros., despite many complaints from Dukes fans, is still not listening, and is still trying to ban the show.

    I still hold out hope for The Love Boat getting back on track along with PJ but I still keep up hope for the completion of Green Acres.

    Green Acres has the misfortune of being controlled by Fox, so good luck with that.

    CBS may not be the greatest, but every now and then they offer a glimmer of hope.

    I don't want to go off-topic, but in what universe is Warners attempting to ban the show? Bo, Luke, Coy and Vance are going nowhere!

    It's real simple Ron. In a commentary on how ridiculous this world has become, even a sniff of political incorrectness can have companies running for cover, protecting their behinds like there no tomorrow..

    But of course it's strickly OK for shows like Family Guy and other shows to demean Christians and anyone of faith...

    I know, no politics here. I'll stop now, but I couldn't resist responding to this one.

    Honestly, the Dukes panic was about a half dozen incidents ago. The internet outrage machine has found new inconsequential things to be outraged over, the Dukes sets are back in stock, and hardly anyone remembers now why there was such a rush to buy Dukes merchandise a few months back.


    Now, if only there were an outrage over people moving from penthouses to farms, or young ladies bathing in water towers... we might see Green Acres or Petticoat Junction completed. :lol:

    I've heard more excuses as to why Ben Casey isn't being released...from poor film elements to music clearance issues. I think both excuses are a load of cr@p. IMHO the truth is, CBS doesnt feel it would be a profitable property to release.

    I wish they would license it to a company that has more faith in this show and realize its potential.

    It is truly pathetic that a show like Ben Casey just sits on the shelf while highly inferior properties get released.
