I started watching my Bilko set tonight, started with Season 2 (since I already watched Season 1 from the CBS release. I was surprised to see the new Shout! on screen logo - definitely an upgrade from that annoying logo they used to use.

Meanwhile, this show is very funny, and I am glad to finally have this complete set. So far, the video quality has been good. Seeing this again makes me wish we could get some of the other 50's comedies - still a number of good shows left from that era unreleased. Shout!, VEI, MPI, Timeless - please help us out. Fox - wake up and release The Life of Riley, or license it out.

Besides "Riley"  : People's Choice , Topper, December Bride , Pete And Gladys , Love That Bob, Amos And Andy, It's Great Life , My Little Margie , I Married Joan, Father Of The Bride , Margie , Bringing Up Buddy,  Bill Dana Show , Happy,  The Trouble With Father , Beulah, and others. Most of these shows had more than one season. Who knows if we'll ever see any of them ?

What was annoying about their old logo, in your opinion?


"CBS Sports presents...The Prudential College Football Report, sponsored by The Prudential, offering a full range of insurance and other financial services. The Prudential: the Rock...it's strong, it's on the move, it's bigger than life."

(Don Robertson's opening from The Prudential College Football Report in the 1986 season, modified from what it was in 1985, in that "other financial services" was said instead of just "financial services")

Some great shows in that list, Lou. A few of those, I have never seen, but I'd be happy to give them a try.

Too loud, too long. Of course, that's just my opinion. :)

That only annoys me if it's unskipable (or can't be FF through).

Inspired by Mike Frezon, I sent FYE an e-mail Dec. 10 with my USPS tracking number showing that they received my return of Ardennes Fury on Dec. 1. They replied the next day that my return was received and checked in, that they had issued me a full refund, and that I should wait 3-5 business days for the refund to be processed. The refund was credited to my debit card/bank account this past Monday, the 15th.

Seriously, congrats, Dan! 

 

This one was a lesson for me to use PayPal when I suspect things might not go according to Hoyle.  Glad I did.  It expedited that part of the transaction (the actual refund).

Like i said guys, if you know you're in the right, then feel mighty proud for doing as such and working towards attaining the benefits you so richly deserve. Hell, it's your money and if they did you wrong, you just act upon it and glad all this craziness is finally getting rectified at a lot of our ends.

I am so pleased that this classic series has made it out on DVD with all its episodes on one set.  It was a great favourite with the British public.  So is there a chance that the New Phil Silvers show could get a DVD release?

That would be really nice , but it seems like a long shot  . It might actually be more of a possibility in Britain where Silvers is better remembered

I FINALLY got my refund from FYE. I went back and forth with them about sending me postage to ship the junk disk back to them for over a month. They kept delaying and delaying. They didn't issue the refund until I filed a claim with PayPal. I won't be doing business with them again.

Has anybody mentioned that Bea Arthur turns up in the previously "lost" McGuire Sisters episode?  This is certainly the earliest thing I have ever seen her in.

I saw last night that Shout! is releasing an individual S2, so apparently sales were good for the complete series. Maybe this bodes well for other stalled series.

I don't know if sales of the complete series have anything to do with releasing the single seasons or not.

 

I would guess that they already have the discs pressed and want to make their money back, so single seasons of shows released as complete series will get single releases no matter what.

There may be some who already had the first season and want to purchase only S2-4; this way Shout can sell to them.
