    Bat Masterson - Season 1 Volumes 1&2

    I'm not even sure that it was a full year, honestly. Sony began a relationship with MGM in late 2004, but it wasn't until around mid (or late) 2005 that they started handling the distribution on DVD. The only TV releases that I can recall which came out from MGM under Sony are Green Acres S3 and...

    Time/Life Press Release: The Carol Burnett Show: The Ultimate Collection

    I received my replacement Disc 1 today and all is well with it now (as expected).

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Having not seen the uncut versions of any episode when originally aired, I can't say what is "right" vs. "wrong," but there are 11 episodes on the set which run about 43 minutes or shorter. Almost all are on the One More Time collection (which actually doesn't even say uncut on the back), but...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    I indeed have that defective Disc 1... I thought it was just my Blu-ray player (since it has been acting up a bit lately and it worked fine on my DVD player) but I'm glad to know this time it isn't my player!

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Well.. I've already done it, broken Carol's head on the set! I wasn't careful enough when sliding down the curtain. Luckily it wasn't completely torn off and a little dab of rubber cement has put it back into place without any visible damage to the packaging. I think I'm going to just pull all...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    It is hard to give a full assessment of the set considering that I've only been constantly watching the episodes so far, but from what I've actually seen so far (and from looking through all of the individual booklets and packaging of the discs I probably won't get to for a while), I'm impressed...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    They put a helpful red sticker on the plastic wrap with instructions on how to open it, so I got it all figured out without doing any harm to the set. There is also a "finger cutout" at the top to aid in pulling it out. Oh and interestingly enough, the curtain smells like wallpaper paste! (it is...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Ha as a matter of fact, yes, Louisville... ALTHOUGH I should also add that mine was actually a review copy, which means that mine was possibly sent out a day or so earlier. (Just checked, mine was actually sent two day on Wednesday, so looks like they handled the review copies in a slightly...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    I JUST received my copy of this set from FedEx about five minutes ago... I've never bought any of the DVDs of this in the past and I'm not old enough to remember the original airing of the series, so my only exposure to the series has been the syndicated "and Friends" version... needless to say...

    What's Up with CBS's DVD-R Releases?

    I would certainly look into whether or not it was a bootleg set. I bought a Numb3rs DVD set a while back from a seller on amazon.com that looked very authentic, down to the packaging and discs... it was even a pressed set. But in watching the set, I could tell something was off with the quality...

    The Donna Reed Show: SEASON 4

    Yeah, that was exactly what I heard from Antenna TV... they really did want the show, but couldn't get it under the "right terms" or whatever, which to me sounds like they were going after the ones Sony owned (seasons 6-8) and would only be able to AIR the ones in that subset that Sony has...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    I don't really remember the show having that much music... although there was the Whitney Houston episode (which, of course, had a ton of it). I also remember the song "Broken Wings" being played for a few seconds in one of the fourth or fifth season episodes, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't an...

    The Jeffersons: The Complete Series?

    Actually, there is one special feature NOT included on that very long list which is (I think) very much reasonable and should be included in such a set... the entire series of the spinoff Checking In. It only lasted four episodes, and ironically, The Jeffersons actually had more episodes (five...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    I think we all got some posts crossed and mismatched here, ha, so I should clarify. Sony did release season 1 in 2007. Somebody else posted about Shout! supposedly having plans to release season 1 before ultimately Sony did... I'm not sure if there were any such plans, but the only thing close...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    In 2005, there were some credible rumors floating around that Sony was planning to release season 1, but shelved it. Once it was shelved, somebody who wasn't connected to Sony (but does have knowledge about the series) said that it was shelved due to poor sales of other series including...
