    Anyone else interested in the Patty Duke Show?

    Nice interview with Patty Duke in this week's TV Guide. She talks a little bit about the show, and the fact John Spencer of West Wing was a friend she met on the show (Cathy's boyfriend, I think). She also said she's always running into Boomers who sing the theme song to her. I got the...

    iPod to kill TV-on-DVD?

    I don't see iTunes having much impact on DVD sales. If anything, I'd expect to see an increase in DVD sales as a result. I see iTunes as more of a fill-in (because you missed it), catch up (because you missed it), or trial (because you missed it) library. Or, as in the case of the one unaired...

    Doctor Who '05 - perhaps October?

    Got my TARDIS box yesterday from Amazon.uk. Disc 2 was floating around the inside of the box - haven't had a chance to pop it in the player and make sure it isn't scratched and/or damaged. The TARDIS box is kind of cool - and fits with many of my other odd-sized Who limited edition sets (PAL...

    New Series On TV- What Shows Would You Want On DVD? And Any Rumors?

    Close to Home has been extended to a full season. It's done well in the Friday night slot, but Threshold tanked in its first Tuesday outing. Pity, it's my favorite show of the new season, and the show I'd most like to see released on DVD. Heck, the CBS site already has some of the extras done -...

    What about "Fame"

    I remember seeing on Lee Currare's web site (forgive the spelling, but he played Bruno in the film and series) that the show was in the pipeline for DVD release. But that's got to be a year or more ago. I would buy this show, no hesitation. Great stuff, great music. In its time, a phenomenon...

    Stargate SG1 questions.

    I'm a co-mod on a Stargate Spoiler list of over 6,000 people worldwide. I would not agree that season 8 is much derided. There were complaints from RDA fans about his reduced role, but most fans agreed he was put to better use in his reduced hours during season 8 than he'd been in season 7. Like...

    Without A Trace?

    I noticed the second season up for pre-order on Amazon.uk - sometime in November, I think. When the first season came out, I saw it listed on the UK e-tailers first, and then it was announced in the US. So I suspect the second season is in the works and will be announced soon.

    Favorite 70's Sci-Fi on dvd

    First three seasons of Blake's 7 are out in Region 2. There's even a special edition of season 3 with a blister-packed Liberator (looks like the Corgi version from the '70s).

    EARTH 2 (Street Date 7/19/05) (contains spoilers)

    When the series was originally aired, the pilot was shown as a film. I think in repeat, and then in syndication (SciFI), it's been shown as two separate parts. But as originally shown, Earth 2 had 21 episodes. I don't suppose they included the promo reel for the second season that never...

    Wonder Woman-what happened?

    According to TVShowsonDVD, these alterations are not yet confirmed. The site news this week stated that the alterations list is now moderated, because there have been so many bogus alterations listed. So, sprinkle liberally with grains of salt ... :>

    Any word on Alien Nation?

    Actually, Columbia House no longer offers Alien Nation the Series. They did release the entire series, but none of the follow-on movies. At least one of the films has appeared on Fox Movie Classics in recent months, so I think the films are clearly in the Fox library.

    What I still can't figure out is why USA Network dropped the show after the first season. Great show that deserved more episodes ...

    How can companies not know if a show is cut or not?

    I can see where there would easily be confusion about the running time on episodes - take a look at Deadwood on HBO, which may have a 52 minute episode one week, and a 57 minute episode the next week. Was that 52 minute episode cut or time compressed? No, it just ran shorter. CBS shows are even...

    The Second Hundred Years

    That's the TVTome episode guide, which is full of errors on episode synopses. For example, Luke and Comrade Tanya has Luke dating a Russian woman he met in the park, and the Army types are convinced she's a spy trying to kidnap him to get the secret of successful suspended animation.

    Doctor Who '05 - perhaps October?

    If the show is passed by the networks, I'd be very surprised if WENH did not find some way to carry it. They've got a long history of going after shows that their core audience wants. When the BBC was doing the Tripods series back in the '80s, WENH was actually broadcasting it two full weeks in...

    80's Action-Adventure TV Shows on DVD?

    Yeah, but Vega$ continued into the early '80s, so it bridges the gap. That's a series I would buy in a heartbeat. It's almost impossible to find, and the few sellers who post bootlegs on eBay are making a fortune - hundreds of dollars for a single season. There's a market for that show, for...

    Galactica 1980, anyone?...Anyone?

    I loved the original series, never missed it first run, even had costumes, toys, the barking Muffet, etc. Got my first VCR just so I could record BSG. I enjoyed Galactica 1980, and I'd buy it, but I probably wouldn't play it again and again as often as I'd do the original series. I'd love to...

    Lois and Clark possibly in 2005!

    The pilot was shorter the first time it was aired on ABC. It was a longer version when repeated in a different time slot later on.

    Angel: Season 5 Observations

    You guys should be happy to learn then that Diamond Select Toys is finally going to do a Fred figure this summer. As well as a new Angel to go along with the Darla, Spike, Wesley and Lorne figures. I'm dying to see what variants they do on Fred - I'd love to see an Illyria figure.

    Greatest American Hero!!!

    Generally speaking, "unaired" means it wasn't aired during the original network run. In that context, "Greatest American Heroine" is accurately listed as "unaired."

    TIME TUNNEL! - Where Are You?

    I would certainly buy this show without hesitation. And with Encore Action running really nice prints of the series (although the last episode has been edited to allow for a continuous rotation), there's good material with captioning available to use for a release. Although this series lasted...

    EARTH 2 (Street Date 7/19/05) (contains spoilers)

    Earth 2 is one of my all-time favorite SF series. I didn't like it so much when it started, but week after week it grew on me. The show had a lot of potential, but apparently the second season, which was under serious consideration, would have gone in another direction. If the series were...

    Birds of Prey Anyone?

    According to the Save Jake 2.0, there is no real news about a Jake 2.0 DVD set. Fans are pushing though, so I'm hopeful. I've never read the Birds of Prey comic, so I didn't have any preconceptions when I started watching the series. I fell in love with the first episode, and as far as I'm...

    classics vs. old loves

    I second the opinion that some of the classic game shows would be interesting to have on DVD. I'm not a game show collector, but on occasion I've watched some of the old classics on TV Land and Gameshow Network (before it became GSN). Watching shows like I've Got a Secret, Password, and What's...

    Quick X-Files Guide Please

    Pretty much any episode featuring the Lone Gunmen is among my favorites. I'll be getting that series as soon as it's available. And I'd agree that season 8 had a lot going for it. Doggett and Reyes brought a new perspective to the show, and that was refreshing - like seeing it through...

    Anyone else interested in the Patty Duke Show?

    I watched this first-run, and I watched it in syndication. I thought there was a rumor that it was being considered - I would buy this series without even thinking twice. This was a true classic. Of course, I'd also want The Farmer's Daughter and Nanny and the Professor, but I'd settle for...

    Recreating A Network Schedule On DVD

    The WB schedules are pretty easy to recreate, yes. Felicity and Dawson's Creek were on Wednesday nights, I think. Now we've got 7th Heaven and Everwood, although not in the same season. And Fox's short-lived Thursday night will soon be recreatable, with Tru Calling and Wonderfalls. Curiously...

    TV Shows coming to DVD in 2005??

    The latest catalogue from Critic's Choice DVD lists The Champions boxed set 1 coming out this year. The series has already been released in region 2 by Contender, and most of their releases seem to show up on A&E's label here in the US, so that's another show that can be added to the list. I...

    Jeremiah season 2

    I want this, I want this, I want this. Even wrote to MGM asking them when they'll put this out on DVD. No reply so far.

    Is There Any Update on Remington Steele?

    The name "Remington Steele" was born because Laura Holt used a Remington *typewriter* and her favorite team was the Pittsburgh Steelers. She needed a male "boss" heading up her detective agency in order to have credibility with potential clients, so she invented him. Zimbalist did a few...
