    Let’s have a Mayberry Blu Ray pack.

    I would love to see something like this as well, but like everyone else I see it as very, very unlikely. I will never say never though. I never would have expected an "I Dream of Jeannie" Blu-Ray set but it's coming. The post above me highlighted another major problem TAGS would have. There are...

    Canadian Alf: The Complete Series any different?

    Are any of the "foreign" releases of ALF that are uncut in NTSC or are all of them in PAL format?

    Mayberry RFD

    The word was the retail release was "discontinued" due to poor sales, and then they brought it back as MOD. Why they didn't just do Seasons 2 & 3 then is beyond me too!

    Mayberry RFD

    I'd say it more likely is due to lack of interest on their part, and/or poor sales. I'm one of the few (I would guess) Andy Griffith fans that actually likes RFD, so I'm right there with you. I wish they'd complete it. Time Life's "Mayberry Collection" set recently included some episodes of...

    Complete Series before DVD/Blu-Ray

    Ironically I've done the same thing with "I Love Lucy". I own all the volumes of the Columbia House VHS series. Our local Waldenbooks store stocked VHS releases of The Andy Griffith Show- they called them "Double Features" with two episodes per tape. These were sourced mainly from other 16mm...

    Complete Series before DVD/Blu-Ray

    The whole TV on DVD/Blu-Ray thing has spoiled all of us I think. I was thinking back this week to what it was like before DVDs. How many people made it your mission back in the old VHS days to collect every episode of a series, or multiple series, by recording them off TV or using places like...

    Gomer Pyle USMC

    I'm guessing they are the same, but has anyone ever compared the Region 4 Australian DVD set to see if the episodes included in it are edited like those in the USA? Also, is there a complete list out there of all the edits? I just ordered the Time Life "Mayberry Collection" set. Another user...

    The Andy Griffith Show: Missing Scenes, Laugh Tracks, And Other Issues

    I ordered the Mayberry Collection set. You can use the Coupon Code "SAVE10" to bring the price down to $89.95 at least. Still steep, but having those episodes "complete" and more RFD out there was the deciding factor for me. I'm a sucker for these though. I also own the "Best of" release they...

    Can someone explain the Carol Burnett releases?

    I have a question that I'm hoping one of you can help me with. I'm a big "Mama's Family" fan, and would love to see all of "The Family" sketches from the Carol Burnett Show that spawned that series. As I understand it, the sketches began in Season 7. Have all of them (or most of them) appeared...

    The Andy Griffith Show: Missing Scenes, Laugh Tracks, And Other Issues

    Wow.. that's a big development considering even the streaming versions of Andy Griffith on Amazon and other platforms don't have those portions included. I'm probably going to spring for this set just to get the additional RFD episodes included in it.

    The Brady Bunch 50th Anniversary. Might we finally see a Brady Blu-ray

    Yep, it's the "one huge plastic case" that the Complete Series CBS/Wal-Mart are putting out now seem to be going to. Personally, I like them, but like many others I rip all of the episodes to network hard drives and then put the discs away for storage. I should get my set today. Has anyone...

    Mayberry RFD

    Thank you for posting this! I've always been a huge Mayberry R.F.D fan (and back in the late 1990's even ran a website dedicated to it). I hate to drop so much $$ on a set that is mostly duplication of the Complete Series sets, but those 9 additional episodes will be great to see in their...

    CBS/Paramount Complete Series Craze

    I've seen a similar one for "Gomer Pyle USMC" too. I actually kind of like the concept since it takes less room and still seems to have the discs somewhat separated. In your experience do those have different UPC codes or are they just repackaging and using the same UPC? Just trying to figure...

    CBS/Paramount Complete Series Craze

    So I've been looking recently at picking up a few "Complete Series" sets for shows I've missed. Based on the photos I'm seeing have they "reinvented" some of these packages yet again? For Laverne and Shirley I'm seeing two versions. The first has a slip case with Seasons 1-5 being in one case...

    Any word on Mayberry RFD Season 2 and 3?

    The Decades Channel aired the entire series on one of their "Binge" weekends several months ago. I was fortunate enough to capture all the episodes from seasons 2 and 3 then. I just have to find the time to edit the commercials out of them and I'll have my own set of Seasons 2 & 3 to tide me...

    The Andy Griffith Show: Missing Scenes, Laugh Tracks, And Other Issues

    I pulled my old "Premier Promotions" VHS copy of "The Darlings are Coming" and can confirm that it does contain "Salty Dog". Running almost 26 minutes I'm not sure what the difference would be between it and the public domain release that some list at 27 minutes. Sometimes it is nice to watch...

    The Andy Griffith Show: Missing Scenes, Laugh Tracks, And Other Issues

    Just reading through the thread and thought I would add a few things... can anyone confirm whether or not the Netflix versions of these TAGS episodes still contain the flaws that some of the original DVD sets do? Like others I can confirm the Netflix "Darlings are Coming" is still edited, but...

    Paramount TV Boxsets- Walmart Exclusives

    I received my copy of the Andy Griffith Seasons 1-5 set and all discs were intact on their spindles. No obvious damage to the case either.

    Paramount TV Boxsets- Walmart Exclusives

    Looking through previous posts I've found two phone numbers you might want to try- (323-956-3010) or 877-335-8936 . Both have been used to provide replacement discs for various Paramount releases in the past. Another avenue might be to just try to locate another copy at Wal-Mart and exchange...

    The Dick Van Dyke Show: Now In Living Color! (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Thanks for clarifying, I didn't see how in the world CBS would release only the edited versions on DVD when they had been uncut previously on their other releases. These are back in the Amazon cart now! Incidentally I don't know if it was the process they used to give Lucy her "vintage" look in...

    The Dick Van Dyke Show: Now In Living Color! (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    After looking at the reviews on Amazon it appears the Superstar editions ARE edited- which makes no sense based on how they dealt with other specials. I was planning on ordering those discs, but likely will save the $ since I have the edited versions already recorded from when they aired.

    The Dick Van Dyke Show: Now In Living Color! (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Are you sure about that? The original Lucy Colorized Christmas DVD offer all 3 of its colorized episodes uncut, and the included "Bonus Disc" of Job Switching was also uncut. I haven't bought the Superstar Special discs yet, but I'd think they should follow the same pattern?

    Riptide (1984-1986), DVDs now back in print.

    Interesting series.. I might have to check this one out! According to Wikipedia the Canadian version of the previous release had the original teasers, but also was music edited. I will be curious to see if your new Amazon.ca version is still the same? I guess one would have to combine the...

    Classic Nicktoons Questions

    Does anyone out there have the Doug the Complete Series MOD from Amazon? If so, can you confirm for me whether the discs are supposed to be dual layer or single layer? I bought a set recently and I'm convinced I got a counterfeit. There are 8-9 episodes per disc, and the entire series is...

    50's,60's 70'S shows on bluray

    Sanford and Son was shot on video, so you'll never see a Blu-Ray release of it. No film to remaster in HD, and an upconversion would likely be hideous

    CBS/Paramount Complete Series Craze

    Well I received my first "double dip" Complete Series release yesterday from Amazon. I was missing the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour set from I Love Lucy, and since I had the older slipcase releases that took a ton of shelf space I opted for the complete series for $57. My version has all the discs into...

    Canadian Alf: The Complete Series any different?

    Good point about the NTSC thing. I didn't consider that. Are the on screen words in German on the German version, or in English? I remember seeing a reference above that on the Japanese ones the credits are in Japanese.

    Canadian Alf: The Complete Series any different?

    So just to clarify, does buying the combination of Japanese/German sets offer any additional footage or would you get the same uncut episodes (with the noted exceptions) by just buying the German complete series box set now? I was just sort of confused as to why you bought two seasons from...
