    Blu-ray Review The Flintstones The Complete Series Blu-ray Review

    Is that from a different episode, or just a different scene kicking it off? That's a weird thing to do.

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    I find it ironical that Paramount+, which owns the shows, has old, crummy prints of Star Trek: The Next Generation while Netflix carries the remastered prints. And that nobody by Amazon Prime wants to run the original effects versions of The Original Series.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Most shows before the 2000's were like that. Weekly viewing, and maybe stripped in syndication. That's how they were filmed. That's why shows like The Fugitive and others can blend into one long episode.

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    Yikes. No legit idea other than that's just what Paramount gave them. Some streaming services have different versions.

    I Dream of Jeannie vs. Bewitched

    It was the 60's. It was NBC. The series started with Tony engaged to Melissa, General Stone's daughter. Jeannie's desires were verboten because, well, Tony was getting married. It did, however, show him that maybe being married wasn't the brightest idea for him. SO a few episodes in (and it...

    Where is Warner Archive?

    After being an amazing resource, Warner Archive has been a string of frustrations and disappointments. I loved their output, but the website was pricey for DVD-Rs. Then their streaming channel was amazing. I got to watch a ton of shows I never would have blindly purchased and they actually ran...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    They actually did in the premiere episode. It wasn't much, but it was something along the lines of "I worked at InterTech, I disagreed with the machines so I quit." Really just a quick line or two, but that was it. I'm just disappointed that Campanella came back for a guest show later in the...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Right, exactly that, I didn't mean time. The episodes are still 50 minutes each. There are 4 episodes per disc. I suppose dual layer discs are too much to ask for at that price point....

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I noticed it in "Bird of Prey" Part 1 in the 8th season. The picture wasn't nearly as sharp as, say, The Fugitive or Star Trek on DVD. Maybe "compression" isn't the right word, but I noticed edge pixelization and a general fuzziness. It wasn't the same crisp image I'm used to from CBS DVDs...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    So, I picked up the first season of Mannix at Big Lots for like $5. I got sucked into this series. I saw a lot of them on Me-TV, so I knew it could be good, but Mike Conners is the perfect leading man, something a series of this type really needed. However, I have to agree with the decision to...

    I never saw the series, but holy cow, Jerry Goldsmith's main theme is excellent...

    Anyone excited for Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie?

    Betwitched was one of a number of 60's series remake films that just went out of their way to simply use whatever name regonition there was. This should have been and oculd have been a really nice update with Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman in the leads. Will Ferrell was horribly miscast. The...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Agreed, you can't binge a series like this. It's numbingly simplistic all at once. The next one, "White Elephants Don't Grow on Trees," is one of my favorite episodes. It perfectly captures the series format and ticks off all the boxes: 1. Guest character conflict (era specific dreamer and...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Recently I have been revisiting the 1970-just barely into 1971 TV series The Immortal starring Christopher George. This extremely short-lived series is the weekly follow up to the excellent movie of the week by the same name. George plays Ben Richards, a test driver with a really bland name...

    Vintage Television Soundtrack Corner

    When the Star Trek Original Series Soundtrack Collection came out, I considered making "scores" for tracked epiodes. I did exactly one: The Corbomite Maneuver. It was a hideous challenge to make that epiodic score into a decent listening experience. After that, I had a huge appreciation for the...
