    Well, I finally received my 5 replacement discs after several months of waiting and it turns out they sent me two sets. So if anyone is looking for the 5 replacement discs for their Most Wanted set (and don't want to go through the hassle of ordering them), PM and I'll send you my set.

    Blu-ray Review E.T. Blu-ray Review - Very Highly Recommended

    Okay, so the 2.0 on the BD is actually the original track. So it is there... but as with Superman: The Movie I can't get the original mix in a discrete format. On the E.T. DVD the 5.1 is the same mix as the BD 7.1... but the 5.1 on the OLD DVD was fine (apart from the "talking" guns) and that...

    Blu-ray Review E.T. Blu-ray Review - Very Highly Recommended

    I posted the below in Robert Harris' thread but thought I'd also put it here in case anyone else cares to check it out... I'm surprised more hasn't been said about the sound since it's such a well known movie. The audio quality is excellent... but the sound is an epic fail. For the most part it...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial -- in Blu-ray

    I'm surprised more hasn't been said about the sound since it's such a well known movie. The audio quality is excellent... but the sound is an epic fail. For the most part it is taken from the 2002 version! The spaceship taking off is thunderous instead of how it was in the original, and...

    buck rogers in the 25th century dvd release

    Wow, great news that the TV version of the pilot is finally seeing an official release. I've always wanted to edit a hybrid of the theatrical and TV version together... so now I'll be able to!

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    I get why some might not jump on this release, but for me... I'm buying it. I will rail against studios when they make the wrong decisions, but I will support them to the utmost when they choose to make the right ones. It seems to me that Paramount really did the right thing here, even if it's...

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Tales of the Gold Monkey The Complete Series

    Thanks for the info Doug. So basically I would need the PAL set to attempt any kind of correction. I'm amazed that we are still left with the speed up issue, it kind of annoys me.

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Tales of the Gold Monkey The Complete Series

    I picked up this set last week, but haven't had a chance to dive into it yet. Having to deal with PAL speed up on an NTSC release is annoying, but thankfully a lot of people don't seem to notice outside of the opening theme. Is there any method to correct speed up on our own? Probably a...

    Lost: Season 5

    I was a bit annoyed with tonight's episode, specifically with the last 10 minutes. I didn't understand the need for the guns in going to see the others. First off, Faraday never seemed to be one for violence... and secondly, both Kate and Jack know that the others would have them way outnumbered...

    24: Season Seven

    Thanks for the info Travis, I actually thought Chloe looked a little different, but I wasn't sure. So they didn't resume in August and are already wrapped for the season?

    24: Season Seven

    Does anyone know just how many episodes were in the can prior to last year's writer's strike? I was curious just when production picked up again and if we could tell a noticeable difference in the episodes.

    THE FUGITIVE, Season 2, Vol. 1 - Replacement Program Announced

    This is fantastic news. I too wrote a letter of complaint, but am so pleased with this replacement offer that I cannot thank all involved enough. I was in the midst of researching alternate ways to follow the adventures of Richard Kimble, but now I can happily support the official releases...

    "Monk" Season 7 Thread

    I really liked Kevin as a character, so I was sad to see him killed off, I didn't see it coming at all. I especially enjoyed Kevin as Sharona's fill-in in "Mr. Monk and the Gameshow"... that was some funny stuff. I do think think that his death gave Monk a bit of growth... he was able to feel...

    The Shield: Season Seven

    I noticed a pretty interesting goof in last night's episode upon a second viewing. Right after Vic leaves Aceveda's office, we see Shane walking down the street just before he assaults that drug dealer. If you watch closely, just as two guys pass by Shane, a camera is visible to the right of the...
