    WISEGUY release from VEI

    Yes, those are the volume “titles” that each was released under between 2003-2005. Ventura Distribution owned the Studioworks Entertainment DVD label.

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    Thanks, I had forgotten about “Hit the Road, Jack”! You are correct, the Studioworks volume had the pilot in its original format, running about 95 minutes. The liner notes incorrectly state that it’s in 2 parts.

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    To have the most complete home video version, you are correct. It’s the VEI set combined with a Studioworks or Mill Creek copy of “No One Gets Out of Here Alive”. From a PQ standpoint, all 3 releases are roughly the same (likely using the same transfers that Cannell Productions provided, music...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    A few more observations about the new VEI set: Season 3, Episode 7 (“People Do It All the Time”) is included in this set. It was previously included in the Studioworks set as a bonus episode, however it was NOT included in the Mill Creek 67-episode set for reasons unknown. Therefore, this VEI...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    I think it’s worth it as well in order to have all of the episodes finally, after almost 20 years of DVD releases excluding Dead Dog. Save the Steelgrave episode though from the prior set! I’m guessing that they spent the extra money on the Dead Dog songs at the expense of “Good Lovin”. (I...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    My WISEGUY set from VEI arrived today. Here are my initial observations based upon a brief glance at a few of the discs: “Good Lovin’ ” is now gone (was featured in the previous DVD releases), and that whole jukebox music scene has been removed from the song’s start up to the song’s end...

    Complete Series Photos!

    I have that HAWAII 5-O Complete Series collectors set, and it is truly a gorgeous set! I think it’s out of print now.

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    The VEI set has an Amazon listing (currently showing as unavailable) that mentions the Dead Dog Records arc is included, and features rear box art. VEI has also updated their website listing to specifically mention that it includes Dead Dog. Now the question is will it have “Nights in White...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    One last bit of news for now: FilmRise, who currently has streaming rights to the Cannell library, has the Dead Dog Records arc included on their Wiseguy channel on YouTube. They added them back in November apparently. Here’s the link to the “Dead Dog Lives” episode: Unfortunately, their...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    One other peculiar item on the webpage: it lists a total running time of 73 hours and 23 minutes. This is very specific, but doesn’t make a lot of sense in hindsight. There were 75 episodes produced (technically 73, as the pilot and the season 4 premiere were originally telecast as 2-hour...

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    I’m happy to be the canary in the coal mine on this one, though if VEI ends up being wrong, it’ll be the last thing I ever buy from them. It‘s shipping from Canada, so I did standard rate (the prices for 2-day and 1-day were more than the set cost), so I have no clue when to expect it to arrive.

    TV on DVD news roundup

    I started a new thread about the WISEGUY release. Based on what I was told by a VEI customer service rep, this release will have all 75 episodes and restored music (no specifics on which songs).

    WISEGUY release from VEI

    VEI’s upcoming WISEGUY DVD release mentions on their website and their email blasts that it includes all 75 episodes. Given that previous releases dating back almost 20 years had music replacement and were missing the “Dead Dog Records” storyline, I was rather skeptical of this announcement...

    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    FYI, seasons 3 and 4 are now up for sale on VUDU in SD and HD. They look even better than the previous seasons!

    William Windom was a favorite of mine in the various shows he appeared in, including the QM shows, Star Trek, and his Hawaii Five-O appearances in particular.

    Pre-Order The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Series (Collector's Edition) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I also noticed an early portion of The Midas Touch (starting with the teaser) was somewhat muffled, though still fairly clear, then it improved later in the show. Can anyone else confirm? I have a Sonos system so I think it’s fairly on the mark, but I just want to make sure I wasn’t imagining...

    Pre-Order The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Series (Collector's Edition) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    That’s why I removed the DVD cases from the Time Life SMDM box and put the entire Shout Factory Blu-ray box set inside of it. Fits almost perfectly! This way you have the best of both worlds.

    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    I agree, the SD and HD versions appear to be from the same masters. The SD version is a quantum leap forward from past versions given the significant clean-up work that was performed to create these new transfers, and the HD version is a nice incremental bump up from the SD, providing some...

    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    For my viewing experience in HD, as an example, I can see the fibers of Oz’s cashmere suit. A far cry from the public domain quality I’ve seen over the years, and even the superior SD quality of the various official compilations. It also seems a bit sharper than my new DVD versions to my...

    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    Seasons 1 & 2 are also available for digital purchase from MPI on VUDU, link below. Despite the fact that my DVD seasons both arrived today from Amazon, I also went ahead and bought the digital seasons on VUDU…in HD nonetheless, for the ultimate double dip (both SD and HD versions are offered)...

    Stations/Networks who withheld certain episodes from the runs

    I always wondered when WOR began running the “new to syndication” 82 hours in January 1989 why certain, seemingly random single-part episodes from the earlier seasons, were withheld from the original 200 package (some examples of which you listed above). Maybe they were held back for CBS...

    A Quinn Martin Production

    The late-70s era of HAWAII FIVE-O seasons (10/11/12) seemed to tone down the violence some compared to the early and mid-seasons, where it was quite pronounced in many episodes, particularly season 4.

    I just watched GRADY last night on Tubi. I think GLORIA might be on there too?

    I did the same thing yesterday, and was thrilled, as the UHDs look amazing! Now if only we could get TOS Complete Series in UHD too!

    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    I just found an error on the set, if someone could please confirm this: on Disc 1 of Volume 3, it lists “Episode #3 - The Fall Guy”. However, the actual episode that plays is “The Pills” (the actual 3rd episode, according to episode guides), in which Ozzie decides to diet to fit into a pair of...

    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    My set arrived via FedEx. Here are a few initial observations (I’ll try not to repeat what others have already posted): Volumes 1 & 2 have 5 and 6 discs respectively (the bonus disc is in Volume 2), and their cases are contained in a slipcover; Volumes 3 & 4 each have 5 discs and their cases...

    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    Got a notice from TL that my deluxe set will be arriving Wednesday. And then will begin the long process of ripping them into my Apple TV file server setup for streaming on my home network. Will swap out the old versions of each episode provided these new transfers are uncut as advertised.
