| Fans of black and white era shows want more than a few bones thrown at them. |
Gilligan's Island. Mr. Ed. Have Gun, Will Travel. Lost in Space. The Dick Van Dyke Show. Six B&W shows out of 22 shows on my list. That's not a few bones, and those are all recent releases. Then again, the mood in this forum tends to be overwhelmingly negative, so maybe "a few bones" is right when taken in context.
The reality is that as studios exhaust their catalog of newer shows, they will increasingly turn to older fare. They have to. Recent and planned releases prove it.
| When was "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" ever mentioned for DVD? |
I was wondering if I'd be able to sneak Alfred Hitchcock Presents in there. It also wasn't part of my article Tuesday.
It wasn't for publication, but I had an email exchange with Universal on Friday about the show (among other house cleaning with the studio) and was told that "consumers will shortly be able to purchase at least the first season separately of Alfred Hitchcock Presents on DVD." The "separately" means outside of the movie boxed sets, where three volumes are available now; that was the context of my question. There is no date or details, but that's as much as we know about other titles on my list, such as Happy Days.
