    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    Just watched the two-parter Never Wave Goodbye last night. Lots of fun, but did seriously strain the credibility meter, overall.

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    You won't be disappointed. The footage is really quite amazing! For the record, even though this is my fist time watching The Fugitive TV series, I do know how it ends. Doesn't ruin my enjoyment of it one bit!

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    Watched The Other Side Of The Mountain last night. Great episode with a great cast (including Sandy Dennis and Bruce Dern).

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    Now that I sprung for the deluxe set, I'm almost certain a much more affordable bare bones one will be forthcoming, LOL!

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    I saw The Witch for the first time last night. It had its moments, but overall I thought it was pretty weak. I just wanted him to get away from those creeps ASAP!

    Sorry to pile on, but I FINALLY got my set yesterday. Watched the first episode last night and the quality is stunning!

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    Got my set the other day and watched the very first episode last night and I really enjoyed it! I was a little surprised that all the Quinn Martin trademarks are there, including the "act" on screen graphics. The picture was great overall, despite a bit of a vertical line during the final...

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    After years of thinking about it, I finally went ahead and ordered the complete series set. Although I know the basic premise of the show, this is a totally blind buy for me, so am really looking forward to diving in soon!

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    Sorry you guys are having issues. I live in an apartment building and learned a long time ago not to have packages delivered there. I started renting a P.O. Box years ago and it's been one of the best things I've ever done. If something can't ship to a P.O. Box, I have it delivered to my work...

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    Wouldn't you know it...my tracking now says it's on the way! Scheduled to arrive by next Friday (5/6).

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    Thanks for all the replies. I guess I just need to be patient. Mine is being sent to a P.O. box and I've had delays with UPS Sure Post in the past. In fact, a different recent order never made it to me at all and I had to have them resend.

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    I'm getting concerned about my recent order. According to tracking, the order still hasn't shipped (just label created). Also, when I go to check my order status, it says that order # doesn't exist! Of course, they already charged my credit card. Anybody else having issues like this???

    CBS Series DVD's and possible Blu Revisits

    I'd be all-in for an original Dallas Blu-ray set. I STILL haven't been able to find Seasons 10 & 11 on single-sided discs!!!

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    I think it's rather impressive that a make believe "band" put together for a TV show actually became a real band! The fact that they remain popular nearly 50 years later says a lot about the quality of the material.

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    My set shipped yesterday. Should have it late next week!

    The Monkees TV Series & 33⅓ Revolutions per Monkee + "Head" (1968) movie, coming to Blu

    I passed on the Blu-ray set the first time around, thinking it would either come down in price or be reissued in a "bare bones" version. Instead, I saw it going for insane prices on the secondary market. So when I saw it was being reissued, I jumped on it this week.

    THE SMITH FAMILY (1971-1972) from VEI, May 1

    I finished this entire set awhile ago. Was a total blind buy for me. I would say it was just an "okay" show that had its moments.

    buying shows Sight Unseen on DVD/Blu Ray

    I've done a ton of blind buys over the years (too many to list). Some are better than others, but I've never regretted buying any of them.

    Pre-Order The Abbott and Costello Show Season One (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Got my set yesterday. Watched the first episode and I am hooked. Funny stuff! "Stinky" especially had me laughing out loud. I concur with the others. The video/audio quality is stunning!

    Pre-Order The Abbott and Costello Show Season One (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    My set is (finally) scheduled to arrive tomorrow (Monday). Can't wait to dive in!

    Pre-Order The Abbott and Costello Show Season One (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Glad you got your set, Tony! Mine is scheduled to arrive by Monday. Somehow, I've managed to avoid watching pretty much ANY A&C over the years. Maybe catching bits and pieces of the movies over the years. The TV show will be totally new to me!

    Pre-Order The Abbott and Costello Show Season One (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Just ordered this set. It's a blind buy for me, but my Grandma was a big A&C fan, so I'm trusting her judgement on this one!

    Press Release PHE Press Release: The Andy Griffith Show: The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    So, I'm on the fence about buying this. I have the original DVD sets. Is the picture quality THAT much of an improvement?? I'm a little gun-shy after that recent IDOJ debacle.

    Item: KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER (ABC/1974-1975)

    Tonight's the night I watch my favorite episode "Horror In The Heights." As a child in 1974, that one gave me nightmares for weeks!

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

    As I stated earlier, the slight uptick in picture quality (which some others have questioned) simply doesn't make up for that bad audio part. It's not just a blip either, it's an obnoxious buzzing sound that goes on for over a full minute, drowning out the dialogue! I've never heard anything...

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

    It's all good. I generally try to avoid Mill Creek as much as possible and this is a good reminder why!

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

    Uh, no. You may want to read my post again. I 'm returning the Blu-ray version and will NOT buy another Blu-ray set from Mill Creek again without first checking the reviews!

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

    Picked up the DVD set yesterday and watched a few episodes. They all look fine and the audio on the "Shark" episode is perfect. I have ZERO problem returning the Blu-ray set and I will also wait for the reviews on ANY future Mill Creek releases.

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

    Just got my Blu-ray set yesterday. I'm not as upset about the video quality as I am with that annoying audio glitch on the "Shark" episode. How in the hell does that happen??? I've been buying TV on home video for 25 years now and I've never heard/seen such a terrible glitch. I'm ditching...

    Item: KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER (ABC/1974-1975)

    Really enjoying this thread! I'm slowly going thru the episodes on Friday nights (just like the old days). I'll say it again, the video on the Blu-ray set is fantastic, a big step up from the DVDs.
