    Is a Pioneer HTZ-830DV worth $200?

    Hi! I will never be an aficionado as far as these things go, but a friend of a friend of a friend is going to jail and his mom is selling all his belongings off. He has a barely used Pioneer HTZ-830DV system for $200. I'm just wondering if this is considered a good investment. I know that...

    Meet the Feebles DVD owners...

    Does your copy have an insert? I got my copy from the secondary market a couple years ago, and didn't think about it until now, but mine does not have one.

    Would anyone like to see Oliver Beene on DVD?

    I would. I only remember watching one episode in its entirety, but it was quite good. Seems like another in a long line of shows with great potential that Fox just couldn't do anything with. I am an absolute sucker for period shows about growing up (The Wonder Years, Freaks & Geeks, and American...

    Anyone recommend "The Most Dangerous Game" Criterion DVD?

    Well, it's been almost 20 years since I last saw "King Kong", but I really do remember -- even at just the age of 4 -- seeing Kong batting at the planes as he clung to the side of a skyscraper. Needless to say, the upcoming DVD with the restoration and a ton of bonuses is going to be a hell of a...

    Most Fully-Loaded Horror DVDs of All-Time?

    Hey, guys! My DVD Collection is sorely lacking in the horror department. As you can see by my current DVD collection, bare bones titles are not my game. Anyway, I've got a couple of the must-haves (Twilight Zone Definitive seasons, Carnival of Souls, The Blob & Hitchcock Criterions), but need...

    Welcome Back Kotter: Television Favorites

    I actually saw about 15 copies of Welcome Back Kotter from the Television Favorites line in the store today. There are indeed 6 episodes and it was $14.99 -- I didn't buy it. That seems too expensive to me considering a full season would probably run about $29.99 (twice the price) and give you...

    Anyone have the complete specs for Twilight Zone season 2 yet?

    I mean the complete specs, disc-by-disc. Last time around, someone got a hold of the season 1 set a couple days early and gave us the complete breakdown of which episodes had interviews, lectures, commentaries, scores and radio dramas attached to them. I saw season 1 on the shelf myself at a...

    Technicolor Criterion releases?

    Anyone know of a list of Technicolor films that have Criterion DVD releases? I've got a couple coming to me in the mail (Spartacus & Richard III), but anyone know of any others?

    Any reviews for American Dreams Season One EME?

    I caught one small glimpse of a season two episode and that's all I've seen of this show. I realize that many of the songs chosen as Bandstand performances actually happened sometimes a few years after the timeframe in which the episode is supposed to take place, but that doesn't really bother...

    Blake's 7 - Is it ever going to happen?

    Excellent BBC sci-fi show from (I believe) the late 70s and early 80s. Created by Terry Nation (of The Daleks fame) and driven by fantastic acting and dialogue (especially from Paul Darrow as Avon). Of course there was plenty of cheese in the special effects department, but the show was always...

    THIS LIST IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED. GO TO THE NEW ALTERATIONS LIST @ TVShowsOnDvd.com: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/alterations.cfm I deleted all the content of the old list. The thread can still be used to discuss (in-depth, if you like) certain alterations made to TV shows on DVD.

    List of MST3K Episodes Likely to Never See DVD?

    I tried searching the archives here but couldn't find anything. I recall one time seeing a detailed list someone had made up that listed all the studios/companies/estates that owned the films riffed on in the history of MST3K. From this list, they whittled down those that were likely to never...

    Anyone recommend My So-Called Life?

    I'm currently obsessing over Freaks & Geeks, which I hadn't seen until purchasing it on DVD. Now that I have it, it's definitely a Top 5 all-time favorite show of mine. Another show in my Top 5 is The Wonder Years. Given this information, do you think I would enjoy My So-Called Life? I have...

    Columbia's New TV on DVD Poll - What Show Will You Pick?

    Columbia TriStar has another poll going on which should directly impact what kind of product gets released on DVD in the near future (if it's anything like their last poll, that is). This time around, you pick only one show from the list. Additionally, you can only take the poll once. So the...

    What do you think of the Punky Brewster Season One announcement?

    I was very surprised to read (at http://www.tvshowsondvd.com) that this is not just rumored but confirmed for June 1st. The entire 23-episode first season plus four episodes from the animated series! It will even feature some cast/creator interviews (no Frye, surprisingly, since her frequent...

    June is shaping up to be the biggest TV on DVD month ever!

    It's true! Since my memory isn't so great, I'm not sure what competition it would have, but September 2003 was pretty good, if I remember correctly. Still, June 2004 is shaping up to the best month ever for our beloved TV on DVD: --Another season of The Simpsons should finally arrive! For...

    My Mom, Who is as Low-Tech as it Gets, Buys TV on DVD

    I just got off the phone with my mom (it's her 50th birthday today) and we actually had a lengthy discussion about TV on DVD and why we love it. Did I mention this is my mother? And that she's 50?? She told me she just dropped $50 on the Agatha Christie "Miss Marple" boxset and that she wants...

    To Kill a Mockingbird - worth buying?

    I'm a little hesitant these days to purchase anything Universal, but the price seems pretty good for this title. It appears to be OAR and includes a commentary track and featurette. Bottom Line: Is this the most definitive version we are likely to get and is it worth picking up?

    Question for Godzilla fans...

    Can someone give me the names of the best 2 or 3 Godzilla DVDs out there? I've always wanted to seriously watch them. I'm most interested in the best of the best, in terms of the film itself and the DVD quality (extra features are always a plus). Thanks in advance for any recommendations!

    Any good non-fiction paranormal/occult/ghost DVDs?

    I'm having a little get together at my place and I was wondering if anyone had seen any good DVDs out there relating to ghosts, hauntings, paranormal activity (such as spontaneous combustion, etc.), or occult-related things. The best result I've seen so far is a DVD called "America's Most...

    Can someone fill me in on the Muppet Show DVDs?

    I just need some info because I loved this show when I was really little and I'd love to own it on DVD. First, precisely how much of the series is available on DVD, both through retail and through Time/Life? If the entire series is not available, is there any indication that the remainder...

    Anyone excited for Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie?

    According to tvshowsondvd.com both are slated to be released by Columbia-TriStar in 2005 to tie in with the new films. I never really got into either of these shows, but DVD releases would be just the thing to get me into them. I think I'd like Bewitched more. Anyone planning to buy either?
