Glad to see this back in Print. I have the first three seasons but never picked up the final 3. Hopefully theres a good price on this set and hopefully they re-mastered Season 1.

I bolded the part I'm really interested in.  My guess is no, but perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Glad to see this back in print too!  I bought all six seasons as they were individually released, but I'm happy to see them available for people that missed them the first time they were out.  I, too, would love to season 1 remastered but I'm guessing this is just a repackaging of the individual seasons put out by Liberation Entertainment between 2006 and 2008.

I never got around to collecting this one in individual seasons, but will probably pick this one up as a complete set.  Is "Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment TV Archives" a new label that indicates more classics forthcoming?

What is Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment TV Archives?  Has anything been released on that label before?  Is there more to come?

Some of the seasons released by Liberation Entertainment had defective discs (freezing, skipping, incomplete episodes, etc.) but to Liberation Entertainment's credit they implemented a timely and very customer-friendly disc replacement program each time those issues arose.  The only exception was that t[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;]he early pressings of Season 1 where there are 4 slipcases each with two dvds and all 4 slipcases go into a cardboard case have the complete episode Lac Duquesne on Disc 4. Later pressings come in a book case with all 8 dvds  and that version has a shortened 38-minute Lac Duquesne episode on Disc 4 and Liberation did not offer a replacement disc for those later pressings.[/color]

 

Hopefully, this complete series release will have all of the corrected discs.

Given who it's from, I expect it will.  Also, it was my understanding that there was at least one incomplete show that was never corrected.  Is that wrong?

I have the second pressing Season 1 set with the episode "Lac Duquesne" that just stops and does not have the ending. I don't see myself rebuying Daniel Boone, even just a separate Season 1 release, just to get 10 missing minutes.I did enjoy Daniel Boone very much on DVD and it was better than I remembered. I liked how the show had a kind of floating continuity. Sometimes the stories were set pre-Revolutionary War, sometimes during the war, and sometimes after, jumping back and forth in time without explanation.The original Liberation release had "enhancements" done do the show by the restoration team, such as beefing up some explosions visually and with bigger sound effects. But the oddest enhancement shown on one of the numerous extras on the original DVD sets was the adding of geographically correct birds noises for the eastern frontier, to the soundtrack.Will this release be using those restorations?If this Fox TV Archives is a new complete TV series label, I vote for CUSTER, LANCER, and COMPLETE BURKE'S LAW, (including AMOS BURKE, SECRET AGENT).

And I'm the opposite.....lol!!! I thought it picked up steam from the 2nd season until Ed Ames left. Maybe it goes back to the b&w season not being syndicated here (just the color years) on local TV. I finally caught the b&w season when World Harvest TV ran the episodes a few years back. I've been kicking myself for ages for not recording those on DVD-R's as the episodes were seemingly uncut.

I'm extremely excited about this. By the time I had any interest in buying this show, the individual seasons were out of print and selling for hundreds of dollars. I was watching an episode just this morning hoping that it would be re-released on DVD someday.

I'd like to pick up a copy of S1 because I have the Liberation Entertainment release with the partial episode.  I also drug my feet over S6 waiting on a "deal" like I got on S1-S5 only to have it go OOP and skyrocket in price!  I need a copy of that, too.  I don't know how willing I'd be to purchase the whose series again - that would really depend on the price.  BUT if they replace those *highly* annoying menus on the Liberation release I might be up for it regardless...

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"]I only need S1 to replace the short [color=rgb(0,0,0);]Lac Duquesne episode. A nice HD remastering would really be nice. With Fox, I'm not going to hold my breath. I think Liberation did all the remastering on S2-6.[/color][/font]

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,0);]When I contacted Liberation about the short Lac Duquesne episode, (which I purchased in a S1-5 set) they replied[/color] that they didn't have a replacement disc for that set, but they sent me an entire S6 set for no charge as a courtesy.[/font]

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"]I have always thought that was quite a nice gesture on their part.[/font]

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"]Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment Archives  - is this a new line? How about, "The Life of Riley" with William Bendix as the next release? (Still not holding my breath).  :)[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"] [/font][/font]

I too only got the first three seasons before they all went out of print -- great news and a pretty good show for its time -- as it is the 50th anniversary, could a new interview with Ed Ames and Darby Hinton be included as an extra?

 

Can never forget Darby opposite Sybil Danning in "Malibu Express" in the mid 80s and think it was the same kid in "Daniel Boone" -- a great show from many peoples' childhood, glad that the studios are bringing out more of these complete series sets than ever -- I think it is the way to go from now on.

Wow!  What a *reasonable* price!  I went for one just in case!  Oh... it's *not* a Blu-ray but a DVD. 

 

If it fixes the episode "[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,0);]Lac Duquesne" and having S6, which I'm missing, it could well be worth it.[/color][/font]

According to the TVshowsondvd.com's news item, these will be MOD (manufactured on demand) from Fox's new MOD program. Not sure if they will initially be pressed discs like some of Warner Archives titles or DVRs.

Can't wait to see what else Fox will bring out of the TV vaults. Peyton Place?

Well if Fox is starting a program of their own then that could give us hope for stalled titles like "Room 222" and "Burke's Law" as well as a lot of unreleased fare. Maybe working with Warner to resolve the "Batman" situation got them to look carefully at how Warner has been benefiting from releasing a lot of stuff in the Archive program.I have all of "Boone" including a good S1 and the rare S6 so I won't be getting this, but I do take it as a positive sign (in contrast to Timeless's pointless reissue of "I Spy").

Well... discovering this is a MOD release greatly tempers my enthusiasm.  The TVonDVD sets I own from Fox have higher playability issues with *pressed* discs than almost any other studio (except for Universal) - I certainly don't trust them with consistently playable MODs.  I'll keep my order open for now but anticipate cancelling it unless initial copies are pressed as done by Warners MOD program.  If not and if they release S6 separately I *might* be interested in that single season but for now hope this release will drive down prices on the Liberation pressed copies of S6.  At least I'd not started the process of selling off my still sealed copies of S3-S5.
