    The Practice

    I'd buy those remaining seasons in a heartbeat -- and if they released a complete series set, I'd happily double-dip on what I already own!

    Pre-Order I Dream of Jeannie: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    After days of internal debate, I returned my set for a refund. I don't really have an issue with the original Sony sets and had just been hoping for a nice video upgrade with this release. But this set sounds like a step backward, and those Sony discs still look better than anything I saw...

    Time Life Dallas Seasons 1-6 on DVD

    I picked it up as soon as it was released, eager to replace my flipper sets. I was hoping they'd continue - especially since I never bought anything past season 9.

    Werewolf: Official Release Announced

    It looks like this show is finally getting released on disc -- but it's in France. Is anyone familiar with Elephant Films? I'm hoping this might be region-free...

    Win a copy of The Ten Commandments Special Edition Blu-ray Digibook

    I'd love to win a copy of this incredible film!

    Soap operas

    That story delighted me! Thanks for sharing it!

    Soap operas

    I'm not sure if it'll make a difference, but that wasn't Hope. That was Princess Gina pretending to be Hope, in the midst of attempting to seduce John (who seemed completely guileless about what was happening). Marlena came home in the thick of it and shut that mess down.

    Criterion Press Release: Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films (Blu-ray)

    I hate the packaging. Hate it. I ended up propping my set on shelf alongside some other chunky DVD boxed sets, but regardless, getting the discs out of those slots is already irritating me to no end. I rather have the book as a separate item, with the discs in a standard plastic case (or two)...

    Blu-ray Review The Stand: The Original Mini-Series (1994) - Bluray Review

    After watching the first chapter on Blu-ray, I popped in the old DVD just to compare, and even though the Blu-ray (maybe just by virtue of the source material) isn't of astounding quality, I thought it was a huge step up compared to the DVD.

    Time Life Dallas Seasons 1-6 on DVD

    Honestly, I'd have preferred for this initial release to go through season 8, ending with Bobby's "death." It feels like a nice cut-off point, if they don't go any further. But if they keep going, I'll keep buying.

    Time Life Dallas Seasons 1-6 on DVD

    I went ahead and ordered the 6-season set. It's a little more costly than I'd like, but I hate the flipper discs on the sets I already have (some of which have freezing issues), so I'm willing to shell out for the upgrade. Hopefully, they'll release the remaining eight (eight!!) seasons, but...

    Knots Landing

    Lisa Hartman's two characters covered songs by Journey ("Open Arms" and "Separate Ways"), Corey Hart ("Never Surrender"), the Bee Gees ("Words"), Michael Bolton ("How Am I Supposed to Live Without You"), Dan Hartman ("I Can Dream About You"), the Supremes ("You Keep Me Hangin' On"), Pat Benatar...

    The Powers Of Matthew Star coming to DVD

    The pilot has the "short-peaked" blue mountain logo, with the word "television" sliding in from the right. I think it's the last one in your post. I haven't watched any of the episodes all the way through yet, so I don't know if it's a consistent feature from episode to episode. Just popped in...

    The Powers Of Matthew Star coming to DVD

    "Starr Knight" is the final episode in the set (at the end of disc 4).

    The Powers Of Matthew Star coming to DVD

    My set arrived today. Just had time to pop in the first disc to see how it looks. The picture is pretty sharp and the colors are vivid (aside from some minor "scratches" in the opening credits in the second episode). Episodes 1 and 2 run about 48 minutes apiece, so I don't think they're...

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    This is truly awful news. That site has been a daily staple for years, and was one that I'd visit with great enthusiasm, always eager to see what was coming (and what I could preorder)! Here's hoping there's a reversal of fortune, and what seems like the end doesn't turn out to be that.

    Trilogy of Terror Coming from Kino 10/16/18

    There's a very small piece of footage missing from the DVD version of the Zuni doll story (or perhaps it was edited out before the film was broadcast in the first place) as Karen Black tries to flee her apartment. I'm really hoping to find it included in this release.

    RHODA Season 5...AT LAST!

    I received my set last week, but haven't checked it out yet. Here's the email notification from Shout...

    Has there ever been a thought of Colorizing some series that were B&W and releasing in Color?

    I would LOVE to see a colorized version of the first season of Lost in Space!

    Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle - Warner Press Release Announces 'The Complete Season 1' DVDs!

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's "The Big River"? I might want to pick up a few of those sets (especially Isis)! :)

    Dynasty - The Official Thread for all things Carrington & Colby

    Has it been confirmed that the new release definitely contains single-sided discs? The original flipper-set had four discs, just like this one, so I'm cautious about ordering it.

    Warner Archive in 2016. Take A Shot!

    It's not old enough to be considered classic TV, I guess, but I'd really like to see more Third Watch.

    So what is your favorite TV show of all time?

    Dark Shadows (the original series), followed very closely by Bewitched.

    Why no release for Once Upon a Time in Wonderland?

    I loved that show, more than the main series. I'm amazed that it vanished into the mist without so much as an MOD release. Hopefully, it'll happen, but so many ABC shows - even successful ones - don't make it to disc, so we might never see it.

    Lost In Space: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I hope this isn't too far off-topic, but I went to the Chiller Theater Expo in New Jersey yesterday. Mark Goddard, Marta Kristen, Angela Cartwright, and Bill Mumy were all appearing for photo ops and signings, but the line was hours long and the cost for pics was too prohibitive ($100-something...

    Lost In Space: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    A friend of mine with access to a color printer at his workplace was nice enough to print out the artwork for me (and he trimmed it, which was a sweet bonus). I've put the discs in the Casetopia cases - although I might replace one of those because there are little bumps where one of the discs...

    Lost In Space: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I just received and opened my LIS Blu-ray set. The content is great, but package in which it was shipped, as well as the set's packaging proper, were terribly disappointing. First up, it ships in a box which is practically the same size as the boxed set. That means all the dings and dents (and...

    Dynasty - The Official Thread for all things Carrington & Colby

    Any whispers about Shout! possibly releasing Dynasty: the Reunion? It's driving me bananas that I don't have the "series finale" on DVD!

    Dynasty - The Official Thread for all things Carrington & Colby

    Well, I pre-ordered The Colbys: the Complete Series and was astonished when a very slim padded envelope arrived on Saturday from Shout!, containing...a Mad Max Blu-ray and poster! Suffice it to say, I went bananas and contacted Shout! immediately. Unfortunately, they're only open Monday through...

    Gemini Man 70's NBC series released in France

    Scott511, thanks for the heads up on this! The set looks region-free, so I'm giving some serious thought to buying it. But I was wondering...is there any discernible PAL speed-up or anything like that to detract from the playback of the episodes?
