The GARR Goup does it again with another ZIV title being released August 6, 2013. Released in (two) season sets making for the complete series. Each season is priced at SRP: 19.99 and amazon is discounting to $13.99 currently.

TGG is becoming my favorite classic tv on dvd company. Soild transfers at great prices. Wish they would have released season 1 of Highway Patrol. I'm too cheap to pay for the MOD one.

Wonder which, if any of the ZIV titles will be released next.

List from wiki:

Acapulco
** Bat Masterson - Season 1&2
Bold Venture
Boston Blackie
Dial 999
Dr. Christian ZIV
Easy Aces
The Everglades
Harbor Command
Harbormaster
** Highway Patrol - Released
** Home Run Derby - Released
I Led Three Lives
Keyhole
King of Diamonds
Klondike
** Lee Marvin Presents Lawbreaker - Releaed
Lock-Up ZIV
** Mackenzie's Raiders - coming soon!
The Man Called X
Martin Kane, Private Investigator
Meet Corliss Archer
Men into Space

** Science Fiction Theatre - possible/prints
** Sea Hunt - released
Target
The Aquanauts/Malibu Run
The Case of the Dangerous Robin
The Eddie Cantor Comedy Theatre
The Man and the Challenge

Great news!
Brian, I'm with you about TGG, very good releases of classic TV shows at unbeatable prices. The only problem I see with TGG is the way they release their DVDs. Complete seasons of Sea Hunt and Highway Patrol were released but not in order, and what about Bat Masterson, they have released season 1 and 2 but nothing of season 3. Also we don't have any way to contact them, their website hasn't been updated since 2009 and it's a very, very generic website.

I'm hoping for Season 3 of Bat as well. At least they released all of Highway, Sea Hunt and the soon to be Ripcord all at one. Much better than waiting months, if not years for the big Studios to trickle out the releases. How long would it have taken for these shows.....

Brilliant news!

Will definitely pick this up.

Hoping that I Led 3 Lives is also in the works ("watch yourself, Philbrick!")

 

I agree with you Brian, TGG is rapidly becoming my favorite distributor.

I may give this series a shot. I hope Bat Masterson Season 3 comes soon as well. I wish Timeless would take a note from TGG and use 5 discs like TGG instead of 4 and craming 10 episodes per discs which gives a lower bitrate and slightly grainier picture that could have been avoided. But happy to have these shows available one way or the other from both Timeless and TGG

TMG is still my favorite distributor, mainly because of their track record, and vast output of classic TV.  TGG has put out good things too, but not exactly in my wheelhouse.  I already had the complete Sea Hunt series and Bat Masterson series as well.  I also had the complete season one of Highway Patrol, and was content with just that.  I have an interest in Ripcord, as I like Larry "Dash Riprock" Pennell and Ken "Festus" Curtis, so I will likely order this series.


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

This is interesting!

 

Is SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE (Syndicated 1955-57) scheduled for a DVD release?  How is this known?

 

This has been one of my fondest wishes just to see the colour produced first season (1955-56) in respectable condition.

 

Let's not forget MEN IN SPACE (CBS 1959-60) as well.

 

Anyway RIPCORD (Syndicated 1961-63) will certainly do for now!

I hope they include the introduction that Ivan Tors did when he was pitching the Pilot Episode to prospective Buyers (The "alternative" version I have has this little "Extra"). Otherwise, I'll have to spare this disk. :biggrin:

 

 

PS. The Plane from Ripcord makes a Cameo Appearance in "The Disappearence" Episode in Season 10 of Lassie (Another of my "Holy Grail" TV Series I want out on DVD).  ;)

It's been implied there may be issues with the master elements.

Who knows what the shape of the color elements are? Does anyone know what type of stock they used? 

 

I've read somewhere to save money, ZIV used "Color Trims" (The beginning and end of film batches)

For goddess sakes, they swiped the artwork for the covers from the comic book adaption and the Whitman tie-in book!

The Pictures of the Skydivers are similiar, but the backgrounds are differant. I'm just glad I'm getting this "Grail" of a TV Series. :dancing-banana-04: :biggrin:

Basing the DVD box art on vintage artwork is inspired!<br /><br />Here is some more RIPCORD stuff:<br /><br />The Ripcord Dell comic book cover again and some interior pages: http://savedfromthep...ry-ripcord.html<br /><br />The ad for the Ripcord Parachute toy that was probably in comic books and the Sunday paper color comics section: http://www.wefestiva...y/cmk04666B.JPG<br /><br />A lay-out of an article about Ripcord,with lots of pictures, put together by the US Parachute Association: http://parachutingas...tist08-2010.pdf
