    Thriller is coming to DVD!!!!

    I hear ya Joe. However, I wouldn't dismiss this "Thriller". It was one of those unique shows back in the 70s, that had an "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" feel to it, but the fact that it was shot on videotape made you feel like you were experiencing the situations that were happening, live and in...

    Thriller is coming to DVD!!!!

    Joe, I'm surprised you don't remember this show, having grown up around the same area and time I did. This "Thriller" ran late night Saturdays (11:30-1:00) on ABC in the mid 1970s. I believe the original U.S. title of the series was "The ABC Wide World of Mystery". Maybe the thread's title can...

    Thriller is coming to DVD!!!!

    Henry, I have given up all hope of all the seasons coming to DVD in a region 1 set. However, I recently bought a little device called an Mvix media player, which you can copy region 2 discs to, and the device will then convert and perfectly playback region 2 DVDs on any U.S. TV. I will be buying...

    Thriller is coming to DVD!!!!

    At first I was disappointed that this post wasn't about the Boris Karloff series. Having said that, however, I did some research into this "Thriller", and it turns out I remember this show from late night television back in the 1970's. I believe it ran on ABC as part of "ABC's Wide World Of...

    TV Movie's I would love to see on DVD eventually

    Does anyone remember these: The Screaming Woman (An old lady believes she hears the voices of a woman buried alive, but no one believes her because she was recently institutionalized.) Bad Ronald (A boy accidentally murders a girl and his mother hides him from the authorities by building a...

    Get Smart!

    Well Dan you better start watching alot more episodes and fast. What if a chunk of an airplane were to fall off and land in your house? Imagine all the great episodes you will have missed out on. LOL!

    Leave it to beaver season 3?

    Didn't someone in an earlier post mention how a possibilty exists that somewhere down the road, we may see the remaining episodes released as single episode downloads from some online stores like amazon.com? Hey, if that's the only way we can finally get the remaining episodes, and you can...

    ELVIS THE MOVIE DVD AUGUST 2007

    And as usual, Ronnie McDowell (who has done Elvis' singing voice in many movies) turned in a fantastic performance as well!

    ELVIS:THE HOLLYWOOD COLLECTION ON AUGUST 7

    Russell, I saw "This Is Elvis" on its original release to the theaters. I can tell you that the version that was released on VHS and laserdisc was alot different and toned down than what was shown in theaters. I remember Elvis making some comments (regarding his latest groupie experience) to his...

    Odd Couple Season 2 release date

    Anthony, are you referring to the songs being kept on the DVDs, or are you simply telling us who sang the songs on the show originally?

    Odd Couple Season 2 release date

    Joe, we better expect the worst from Paramount. I love the Odd Couple, but I was also looking forward to season 2 (and in my opinion the last good season) of Happy Days, and they completely ruined it! They used scratchy film elements with edit marks, they removed several scenes because they...

    ELVIS:THE HOLLYWOOD COLLECTION ON AUGUST 7

    I read somewhere several yrs ago that the Elvis estate doesn't want to ever release the CBS special because it showed Elvis in a very bad light, and it was very depressing to see a legend practically dying on stage in his last concert. As a big fan of his, I remember seeing that CBS special when...

    ELVIS:THE HOLLYWOOD COLLECTION ON AUGUST 7

    I hope you mean "Girl Happy", outside of Elvis' concert films, it's the one movie I've been waiting for on DVD!

    Leave it to beaver season 3?

    Since this series has probably been abandoned by Universal, does anyone know of a cable TV station that runs the show with the fewest amounts of cuts in it? I'd like to prepare to record the remaining episodes on DVD for posterity.

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    Quick, anybody know Gary Sandy's email address? ;)

    Leave it to beaver season 3?

    You bring out a good point...In I Love Lucy, and especially in The Dick Van Dyke Show, I remember very few outdoor scenes that were actually shot outdoors, and not on a soundstage. This is probably because those shows were done in front of a live audience, unlike Beaver. What few scenes I do...

    Leave it to beaver season 3?

    Now David, we've gone through this before... :) Remember someone said the reason the indoor scenes are grainy was because they had to use faster film (grainier) for indoor scenes in order for the show to be lit properly. Also, the reason the graininess shows up on the DVD and not on syndicated...

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    The same way some people get their meds on the black market to avoid paying ripoff prices, I'm sure someone has the original KRP masters somewhere, and will be selling bootlegs to those who want the inferior, yet superior version.

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    Good luck trying, they've cut out alot of scenes that had the original music, so it wouldn't be a matter of simply re-mixing your own dub of the original songs, it's also a matter of re-inserting parts of scenes that have been cut out of the DVD release. Nah, the original KRP as we remember it...

    Voyagers! coming to dvd in July....

    It's a shame today's society perverts any notion of a person over 18 sleeping fully clothed with someone under 18. In the old days no one would even think such trash, but now don't dare put a picture of an adult male together with an underaged kid because it gets ridiculed. Anyone 40+ yrs old...

    Josie and the Pussycats in the works *FINALLY*

    And of course let's not forget that it was Cheryl Ladd (AKA Cherie Moor /Cheryl Stoppelmoor) who was the singing voice of Melody Valentine.

    Get Smart!

    Does it really matter what the fans think? Most of the real fans of the show grew up watching it in the 60s and in syndication in the 70s. I doubt 95%+ of them will even bother to go see any new version. Let's just say Don Adams WAS Get Smart, who cares about any other version? :)

    Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy - Season 2

    From my memory of the show, Happy Days season 2 episodes originally contained the songs "Wheel of Fortune" - Kay Starr, "Secret Love" - Doris Day, "Splish, Splash" - Bobby Darin, "I'm Walkin'", "Blueberry Hill" - Fats Domino, "Cry", Little White Cloud That Cried" - Johnnie Ray among many other...

    Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy - Season 2

    Thanks for the update, Jay! I was looking forward to owning the first 2 seasons (and in my opinion the best 2) of Happy Days, complete with original music intact. Now I guess I'll only have season 1 because I refuse to buy anything that has substituted music. Others may decide differently, but...

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    You guys are missing the point. You think Fox really cares that they've put out a crappy product in this WKRP release? As long as they can keep the average buyer in the dark about all the edits and music substitution, once people purchase the set and Fox has their money, they won't be issuing...

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    "If I go to a restaurant and they only burn half my dinner, but the other half is edible, I don't think I should feel fortunate to have half of it. It sucks and I won't pay for it." Yes but what will you do when the manager calls the cops on you for ordering it, then not paying for it? ;)

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    This set may inadvertantly become a hit, and the reason is simple. How many hardcore fans of the show are out there and don't read internet message boards letting them know how butchered the set is? How many will go to Walmart, not even bother to read the fine print, and simply grab the set, buy...

    Saturday Morning Cartoons You'd like to be on DVD

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned the original "Archies", "Everything's Archies", "Archies Funhouse", "U.S. of Archies". All the Archies greatest hits appeared in those shows. I wish they would release every episode ever made to DVD already!

    Enough already Fox. Are we EVER going to see WKRP released?

    Thank you Gord for that list of music changes. Now I know I won't be buying this set...I guess I'll simply copy my VHS over the air copies to DVD. There's no way I'm going to exchange my precious memories of the show for a different version for the sake of greed. Some of us have to do what we...

    Neither was Looney Tunes, but that didn't stop people from posting about it here either.
