Timeless Media Group's website lists Peter Gunn - The complete series as coming soon. No street date is given. The cover art and a brief overview are there. It is a 12 disc set. Also the Peter Graves series Whiplash is listed as coming soon

The good thing about the A&E releases going OOP is that it ups there resale value. So on Amazon right now you can actually trade in the first two A&E releases fors around $35 total. Going ebay or marketplace takes more work but would probably bring in even more. So figuring the Timeless release will probably work down to about $39 at Sam's and other places eventually, you could almost get the whoe thing for free. Now the big question is what prints did they use. I'm figuring no worse then the A&E prints.

WOW!!!! I've been waiting forever for this! it was such a great show- Lola Albright was a goddess as Edie Hart, and I could never understand why Blake Edwards replaced her with Laura Devon in the 1960s Gunn film, as Lola was still getting big parts at the time and looked fabulous. I still have the A&E sets, so I guess can get rid of them!

I would hope that they will be using the prints and/or transfers utilized for the Season One and Season Two sets of PETER GUNN released in the UK a couple years ago by Liberation Entertainment. Of course, those are long OOP, but the image quality was stunning. These must have been mastered from pristine 35mm prints. I recall that on their website it stated that Liberation also owned the rights to MR. LUCKY and MR. ADAMS AND EVE and were planning releases in the future, So, with luck, we may see even more treasures from Timeless in the future.

If "Mr. Adams And Eve" is a possible DVD release that would be a surprise since my understanding was that only one episode existed.

That's one show I've always wanted to see- I love Ida Lupino!

I don't know one way or the other about who has MR. ADAMS AND EVE, but I think Timeless may indeed be getting PETER GUNN from (the former) Liberation Entertainment (now Camelot Entertainment Group), because evidence suggests that Liberation/Camelot looks like the source from which Timeless licensed THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, THE ADVENTURES OF SIR LANCELOT, THE BUCCANEERS and the upcoming YANCY DERRINGER set. If this is true, perhaps we'll also eventually get MR. LUCKY and a good-looking, legit set of DECOY (starring Beverly Garland). Here is what Camelot lists as their TV series holdings : http://www.cameloten...library/tv.html --although the page has a 2011 copyright, so things could've changed.

All three seasons of Peter Gunn have been broadcast on MeTV in the States, and each episode starts with a Liberation Entertainment logo (same company that released the first two seasons on DVD in the UK). The quality of the prints (as seen on those DVDs and on TV for the third season) is miles ahead of the A&E ones, which were unbelievably bad (and some of which were cut, too, despite what it said on the boxes). By the way, I have a Peter Gunn page (http://www.mjq.net/petergunn) similar to what I have done for Hawaii Five-O if anyone is interested... :)

Unfortunately, the ones used by RTV recently were not very good and cut. So we have to wait to see what Timeless ends up with.

Certainly will get this Peter Gunn set from Timeless (along with their release of 87th Precinct). Being a detective/private detective series it's a series I'd be interested in seeing. And would also like to see a proper set for the Beverly Garland series Decoy as well.

Would have been nice if they released the colorized episodes! Those turned up in Australia a few years ago and were very nice. Yeh, I know, Peter Gunn is the ultimate cool B&W TV Film Noir - but the colorization was well done.

Ooohh, I'd love to see Peter Gunn in color, ignoring all the P.C. opinions, I love colorized movies and TV shows. I didn't know P.Gunn was colorized, if only there was a release of the color set. Please let's not have a color/b/w debate, I've gone thru it many times before and still love color. You are more than welcome to your opinion, allow me the same privlege. But I will be more than happy to get the Timeless release, BUT I do hope they will be un-cut episodes. I have the RTV shows and on the plus side they do include the art-figure Peter Gunn logo before each commercial, but the RTV broadcasts consistently skipped about 3 Season 3 epiodes. They were somewhat edited but not really that bad compared to a Canadian cable channel's broadcasts.
