    Episodes of Classic TV Shows Out Of Syndication

    I know of the quick cuts to i love lucy but daytime tv rerun commercials for all 3 networks of the in the b&w era consisted almost entirely of bumpers for primetime & daytime programming since the conventional wisdom of the time was that you couldn't even give daytime commercial slots away let...

    Episodes of Classic TV Shows Out Of Syndication

    As someone who watched a lot of daytime reruns when i was down with a broken leg back in 1959, i can say with certainty that extra cuts to fill time with commercials was not a thing and would not be for about 20 more years, the daytime reruns consisted of the same 4:30 minutes worth of...

    Is the b&w era of TV on DVD slowly coming to an end?

    As much as i would like this to be the case, the modus operandi of VEI has been to exclude black and white shows and to focus exclusivley on color shows made from late 1960s onward, I don't know what the exact fate of these black and white shows is going to be, but i highly, highly doubt VEI is...

    DVD sets with pixelation

    I checked a all of the suspected bootleg sets a few of them were in fact single layer, but one of the poor quality sets Mr. Ed has a gold finish when shone to the light and two bar codes, could it still be a bootleg?

    DVD sets with pixelation

    Sorry to sound like an old fool but how are these bootleggers getting ahold of such sophisticated equipment that they can reproduce the cases and the boxes and other little accesories so perfectly, my maude set even came with the booklet.

    For the past couple years it seems that i havd been getting stuck with dvd sets that have all the symptoms of compession, like pixelation, flucuating bit rates etc, without actually being compressed, I'm not sure what's causing it, it seems to be consistent across all my dvd players and all my...

    A bit dissapointing but even in this condition the current sydication prints of our miss brooks are leagues ahead of the prints that used to run back in the 80s, which ran about 21:30 minutes with all the tag scenes being cut out entirely.

    Is the b&w era of TV on DVD slowly coming to an end?

    I dont think that is the case because the Our Miss Brooks syndicated cuts that ran in the 80s clocked in at about 21:30 minutes and were all missing they're tag scenes, which is not the case with HD syndication masters, which run 22:30 and have tag scenes.

    Is the b&w era of TV on DVD slowly coming to an end?

    I dont understand why they would use the syndicated print, this may sound ignorant to some of you, but when they restored Our Miss Brooks for syndication a few years ago wouldnt they have restored the unedited master and then make the edits later (sincs its all done digitally anyway), if so why...

    Just bought Ben Casey, waiting for Amazon to post up Our Miss Brooks, and while I am very happy to be seeing Ben Casey after all these years it unfortunate to have to be paying these outrageous prices just for the privilege, If they end up releasing the entirity of both Our Miss Brook & Ben...
