I've had my pre-order in with Shout for a while now. So, as promised, once it arrives I will be going through each episode to let everyone here now exactly what is or is not on the set.

 

I think I thanked you before for taking the bullet for the rest of us.

 

Your review/nitpicking will decide whether I order it early or not at all.

 

Even something as small as all the episodes running at 25 minutes and being unedited would probably convince me to buy the set.

I want to thank you, also. Your review will let me decide whether or not I cancel my pre-order with Amazon.

Just tweeted Shout Factory and the reply was that they're still finalizing some of the clearances and expect an announcement by end of next week. Keep those fingers crossed!

^Boy... they're cutting it *close*! With a September 23rdth "get it on" date when ordered direct that gives them only 2-3 weeks to get the sets ready and shipped!

Might be part of their negotiating tactics for licensors to let them know that the train is leaving the station.

Even though there's nothing concrete out yet, I like they way this is going...

Antenna TV aired the episode that focused on the Russian hog expert who has a crush on Bailey and featured the song Tiny Dancer. All evidence of that song was removed. Hope it's back in this new set because of the dialogue that uses the lyrics from the song.

What has me worried with this 'down to the wire' business is this doesn't leave much time for any type of good editing for the episodes with unclearable music. Especially if there is any re-recording of dialogue or new dialogue that needs to be put in place over existing scenes to remove the music. If they wait until the very last minute, then I'm guessing that the solution is going to be to delete the scenes with unclearable music all together. I'm not going to be too happy about that if it happens. Or they may have to go with existing dubbed dialogue from the current syndication package. From what I hear, that stuff is pretty bad and highly noticeable. 

 

I'm willing to give Shout the benefit of the doubt, but they've burned me once too often for me to completely trust them.

I'm thinking the same as you.

Shout and "down to the wire" doesn't sound that good together. They flub up more often than I would like.

I hope I end up completely wrong about my concerns.

I wish we would get both the original broadcast cut and the original syndication cut, because many of the shows play much funnier in the syndicated cut. The one with Carlson's son is the first that comes to mind. The confrontation between Venus and him is much funnier in the syndicated edit.

When his son calls Venus "boy" they cut away from it right after the comment, keeping it lighter. In the original version, the confrontation is ugly and awkward as Venus grabs him & picks him up.

 

The scene resumes in both versions with the son saying "He just tried to kill me!" Then  Herb saying "Venus shouldn't be picking on little white kids!

 

"How about big white kids!?!" :lol:

i think whatever delays are a good thing

 

as i said earlier, i thought wonder years would set a precedent for all these shows where music rights is an issue

 

the rights holders are seeing just how much was cleared for that show, and are beginning to realize that something is indeed better than nothing

 

plus whatever deal they worked out with wonder years will probably be a blueprint for starting out with other shows.
