Does anyone know if you could still get Shazam directly from Warner Archives as pressed dvd's? I also noticed that Warner Archives lists both a set with exclusive animated cover art and live actors on front. Would you get pressed dvd's on either one?
Also has Alice Season 3 been offered as pressed dvd's from Warner Archive?
Does anyone know what other TV series were offered as pressed? I was also interested in getting Eight Is Enough Season 2.
If anyone has any info on this I would appreciate it.
According to someone I corresponded with at the Archive who actually worked on this release, the Ordway/artwork cover (which is the "limited edition" release) is ALL pressed discs, and the one with the cast photo (the "unlimited" edition) is the one that is "burnt" (or if there were pressed quantities, is the one that will become "burnt" when those run out).
If you want to play it safe, order the Ordway version and you'll be safe.
From personal experience, I know that both volumes of The Lieutenant are/were initially offered on pressed discs. On the other hand, I also know first-hand that Man From Atlantis was not offered on pressed discs. I think the shift in policy for high-demand titles being given a "pressed" run was enacted not too long after Man From Atlantis came out.
I'm surprised not to see Tarzan on that list of "replicated" titles. Maybe the pressed quantities of that one ran out?
