The computer was a HAL9000 rip-off. But it was entertaining. Come to think of it, it was probably titled "The Doomsday Device".


It was a nice show of the time.


"Doomsday is Tomorrow" was from Season 2 and guest-starred Lew Ayres as Dr.Elijah Cooper.  A classic 2-parter :)

Please, oh please, let them not touch the music. Anyone who would do such a thing (releasers of Greatest American Hero, The Fugitive, etc.) should have to listen to an earsplitting weeklong rendition of "Bodine Brown" and bagpipe rap. And then get nasty.

Not this part



Again, the info is early, and we're going to try to find out more about this for you. But of immediate concern to use is the specs! The show was originally broadcast in 1.33 "full screen" video format, but Universal's announcement this morning describes a DVD release with a video aspect ratio of "Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1)". If this is true, then it could mean that the original image was cropped, top and bottom, in order to better fit modern television screens. We SINCERELY hope that Universal didn't make the mistake of cutting away portions of the image for any reason! This studio releases classic television all the time in the original broadcast aspect ratio of the program, so we hope that this is more likely to a typo than anything else. We promise, we'll look into it as soon as possible!


We'll see. Just in case I took my R2 sets off the 'for sale' listings for now.

Press releases routinely have typos so I wouldn't worry yet.

Not noted on the pre-information... Lindsay Wagner mentioned at a collectors show last weekend that she recently recorded some commentary tracks.

Actually, Time Warner and Time Life haven't been associated in quite some time...

Messing with the ratio of the original TV format would be a big mistake and sink sales numbers significantly, so we must hope that's indeed a typo, can't believe Universal anyway would be mad enough to do something like that after all this time. Typo, surely.

Ah very interesting. I assumed that they were because the Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a Warner property.


Either way Time Life does nice work with their DVD sets and I'm happy to see them working on TSMDM and Bionic Woman.

TVShowsonDVD is reporting now that the Bionic Woman AND the SMDM set from Time Life will be presented in their original aspect ratios.


They are also reporting that the crossover episodes from SMDM will be included in the BW S1 set.

How much you want to bet the gag reel is censored? I've seen the blooper reels before and there's a lot of bleepable language in them (much of it from Lindsay)--and in one case, brief nudity!


As these sets are going to be primarily for adult collectors, it'd be nice to have the option to watch the gag reel uncensored (maybe a secret remote code printed on a slip of paper in the box, so parents can keep that feature hidden from kiddies?), but I doubt it.


Wouldn't be a deal-breaker, just a disappointment.


Best gag reels of all time, though, are the uncensored ones from Mork & Mindy. Would be nice to see those in 'better than bootleg' quality!

Something similar happened on the "Get Smart" set. One of the extras was a roast of Don Adams that was held at the Playboy Mansion. There was a warning in the booklet listing the extras and on the DVD itself to the nature of the material.

Was the Don Adams roast censored/bleeped, or uncut?

I don't believe it was - it's been a while since I watched it. They gave the approriate warnings that it may not be suitable for some people, which I feel was the appropriate thing to do.

Uni has unveiled their cover (f)art for The Bionic Woman: Season 1.  As expected, it's totally bogus, featuring a very unflattering key shot of Lindsay, non-authentic typestyle, and not one, but TWO shots from Season 3!  By comparison, it makes all those hideous foreign covers not quite-so-hideous after all.


Why not something like this:

Matt,


I remember that pic.  That's more like it.


I wonder why the studios seem to have problems matching up correct pics with the correct seasons of a show?  Isn't the lower right pic from S3?


I thnk the upper right pic is from S1's "Jamie's Mother".
