    Classic TV Westerns

    Alias Smith and Jones is really good! Unfortunately the death of one of its stars changed the whole feel of the show. But definitely worth watching. Episodes appear to be unedited. I’d add Young Maverick and Bret Maverick.

    Predictions for 2018

    I have been a fortunate collector as most of what I want in terms of older TV have already been released. There isn't a whole lot left on my list left that has not, to my knowledge, been released. That said, I am hoping for: GREEN HORNET ( I was hoping it would come on the heels of the BATMAN...

    It's About Time...Finally

    I,m glad for those that enjoy this series that it is available to you but, to be honest, I have watched five or six episodes on cable within the past year and just don't find it appealing to me, I have seen both episodes in the past and those in the 'current' time and just don't find it funny...

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

    My most recent purchases, just in the last few weeks, were complete series sets of BARBARY COAST and ALIAS SMITH AND JONES. Both were blind purchases, having never seen either series. I purchased AS&J because or Roy Huggins being executive producer and his ties to MAVERICK. I like the show...

    Believe It Or Not - Grady Is Coming To DVD!

    I wondered when I saw this release if maybe, just maybe, they're testing the water for a release of SANFORD, Redd Foxx's follow up to the original series. I'm hoping it gets released at some point.

    Shared Universes on TV

    What cross overs do you recall that tie various tv shows together?? One off the oddest I recall is the cross over between MAGNUM PI and MURDER, SHE WROTE. One more action oriented show meeting a "low action/ no action" show!!

    A Spinoff of a Spinoff?

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    Among the worst sequels I've seen - Sanford Arms and Tabitha. Both of these just had me wondering "What the hell were they thinking????"

    Adventures Of Superman DVD Series Collection

    I've had these for a while but never watched them. I recently started watching the series - the origin episodes, I'm sure, were hi-tech for their time but WOW those special effects were painful!!! I've watched about 5 episodes and am really enjoying them! A great nostalgia purchase!!!

    A Spinoff of a Spinoff?

    More spinoffs of spinoffs. AITF spun off Archie Bunker' s Place which in turn spun off Gloria.

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    OH and as for the above comment, there are TOTAL differences between spinoffs and sequels/reunions. Spinoff take a character or characters from a show and put them in a new environment with a new supporting cast. Like Frasier from Cheers, Maude from All In The Family, Phyllis from TMTMS...

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    I have always seen this movie as such a lost opportunity for TMTMS and RHODA fans!!! I always liked both RHODA and PHYLLIS over TMTMS and was really looking forward to this movie when it first aired. Was way disappointed.

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    In regards to the HONEYMOONERS referenced above, I remember many years ago, late 70s maybe, reading an article that Jacie and Lucy had talked about a sitcom they would produce together in which Lil Ricky married a previously unknown daughter of Ralph and Alice. Then it was planned for Jackie...

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    I thought the first Gilligan reunion was pretty entertaining. The third was just goofy all around. One of the worst had to be (a tie really) - The Brady Bunch Variety Hour and the last one, The Bradys - the attempt to turn the characters into a drama..

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    I'm not talking full on reboots or big screen movies recasting old tv shows. I'm talking reunion TV movies or series sequels to classic tv. Think Brdy Brides from The Brady Bunch, Rescue from Gilligan's Island from Gilligan's Island. Talk about some you enjoyed (or didn't). I I...

    Believe It Or Not - Grady Is Coming To DVD!

    It's gotta be priced to make it viable for them to make money off of projected sales. As a huge fan of S&S, I'll get it for the Fred appearance and in hopes that sales will make the company want to release SANFORD.

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    Last thought. The character of Nel would have been better used like Samantha Crawford in the original series. Sparingly. The actress was good, it just was awkward the way she was worked into each episode.

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    I have more than enjoyed this final piece of the Maverick puzzle, as I've said before. Having been in touch with a WA employee, they can't find any trace of the missing Garner footage from the first episode. The only print they have is what was used for the set. The only evidence they were...

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    I have a question, too. Years ago there was a VHS release of The New Maverick. It ran longer than the version that aired on ABC. I was wondering what happened to the extra footage in the VHS release? Maybe something contractually that kept them from using it?

    Other short lived shows I'd buy if available

    comic book related - JON SABLE HUMAN TARGET (original version with Rick Springfield) SPIDER-MAM DOCTOR STRANGE (made for TV movie) other stuff- DIRTY SALLY SANFORD GRADY SWORD OF JUSTICE ( a Dack Rambo series) I'd get any of these.

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    I do have one issue with the set that I am currently discussing with WB. LET ME SAY, though, that I truly enjoy having this set. And would encourage anyone 'on the fence' about buying it - get it!!!

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    I've finally finished watching all the episodes and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It does appear that the two part episode, rather than using the two seperate episodes, used a version that aired as a CBS late movie airing from the early 80s - edited together as a movie. It didn't stop me from...

    What unsold pilots would you like to see released

    Probably original pilots for shows that were way different when they made it to air, be it cast changes or concept tweaking. Like BIG BANG THEORY or TWO AND A HALF MEN. Maybe a production company could bundle failed pilots of there shows. Also pilots that didn't sell with actors that later...

    Do you guys collect for nostalgia or quality?

    I just collect for fun. I tend to find that the dramas, for me, don't hold up as well as other genres, say sitcoms or westerns. Can't say why that is - most likely a personal thing. But I always choose to spend my collecting dollars on stuff only that I think will be fun to watch. I rarely...

    Predictions for 2016?

    I'm gonna keep holding out hope for GREEN HORNET. And, man, would I love to have seasons 1 & 2 of CHICAGO HOPE. And on my list of "I Never Expect To See It But Would Buy It In A Heartbeat" - SANFORD and GRADY. And does anyone remember the tv series FLAMINGO ROAD with Morgan Fairchild and...

    Young Maverick

    So my Young Maverick set has arrived!! Started watching the first episode. "Clancy" is a fun episode. But, I could have sworn that there was a James Garner appearance in the opening of the episode. But there is no appearance on my copy. So I'm wondering - What Happened?????
