    Obscure Classic TV Shows - Post Your Favorites!

    Have Gun...great series. My favorite western. Every time I sit down to watch one, I wind up plowing through an entire disc. I love the feel of it. It has on and off lighter episodes, but it's mostly pretty serious. The b&w photography and the grim music (a great deal from the stock library) make...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Haha why do I get the feeling you went easy on this one? I laughed out loud here: "Vulcans never bluff, which is why we rarely win at poker." Well played, Russ!

    Awww, well you were so nice to be concerned about my feelings, so go right on ahead and put your unique and much less reverent spin on it.

    Obscure Classic TV Shows - Post Your Favorites!

    The premiere is still one of the funniest episodes in the run. The series was great fun, especially in the first season. Amazing staple of my kidhood.

    What's the last TV DVD/Blu-ray you bought?

    I have a number of DVDs that have the PAL speed up. What's funny is that some of these shows have been pitch corrected so they sound closer to what they're supposed to sound like. I also have the Network blurays of Super Space Theater, which have the Space:1999 compilation films. One of them is...

    What's the last TV DVD/Blu-ray you bought?

    I snagged Crime Story season 2 at a used Record/CD/video store for $4. I had season one from Anchor Bay and wanted season 2 to match that set and, well, there it was.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    "Here's one of my favorite episodes!" "Here's why it sucks!" I could not disagree more strongly. There is nothing laborious or talky about this episode. I could easily attach those two words to any dozen episodes of the highly regarded first season. This is one of those rare Irwin Allen...

    Non USA releases that are not as cut (music replacements etc. ) as their USA counterparts.

    Ughhhh man, when I first popped in Operation: Spoilsport, my heart sank when the alternate music came on. That was my favorite episode and the song was - as many were - important to the plot. It also made the episode darker and more serious. I cannot watch that episode as it is. I don't mean to...

    Press Release Imprint Press Release: Space:1999 Ultimate Edition (Blu-ray)

    If you just want to try more episodes, Nelson, have you tried streaming. Most, if not all. of the Anderson Super Marionation shows are available to watch on a variety of platforms. Thunderbirds worked for me more than anything before that. I need to try Captain Scarlet, it is supposed to be...

    A Quinn Martin Production

    It's actually more like those shows that start with some of the leads getting shot or tossed out of a plane, they go to the main titles and then in act one starts with "48 hours earlier....". I didn't mind it in The Fugitive, but for shows of a more recent vintage (like Agents of SHIELD or Human...

    Classic TV Promos, Commercials and Bloopers - Post ‘Em!

    For bloopers, I find this to be great. Ryan's Edits. He put the outtakes back into Star Trek Next Generation episodes, and added finishing touches to they are mostly seamless. And hysterical. Posting one or two would be pointless, so here is a link to his You Tube playlist. Others have also...

    Classic TV Promos, Commercials and Bloopers - Post ‘Em!

    I consider V to be the pinnacle of 80's promos. Their ad campaign and the recaps were practically mini movies. Batman was known as the best promoted series up to that time... Some of these were even used in syndication.

    Funny how they were still selling Lost in Space as a mostly serious adventure at this point.

    A Quinn Martin Production

    I don't have a problem with "The Witch" and it's a dark episode for this series (which had its share). The hint that Kimble is suspected of an inappropriate relationship with a young girl adds a layer of discomfort. If I had any issue with the episode it's the very obvious use of the soundstage...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I really have to start picking these up. The series was such a staple of my teen-hood and some of the best times with friends. Lalla Ward was sooooo cute and with a great screen presence. This was a fun era for the "Doktah."

    What Series are you most glad you have on DVD?

    There was also a wonderful period where Starz Action ran The Green Hornet and The Time Tunnel back to back, commercial free, on weekends. Just like in 1966-67. They were mostly uncut, other than a scene or two of The Green Hornet (an epilogue scene in the first episode and the recaps at the...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    This is obviously one of the most famous and greatest episodes of the series. There's a prevailing feeling of dread throughout and that moment when Dan Hollis is made into a Jack in the Box is still a chilling example of early TV body horror. The reactions by the observers transcends the...

    Can anyone recommend any classic TV show conventions?

    There are a couple of smaller events in my area but most everything is a "ComicCon" and now it's suddenly cool to go to them. I liked them better when I was a leper for even suggesting going to a convention. :D
