    Bat Masterson - Season 1 Volumes 1&2

    I'm not even sure that it was a full year, honestly. Sony began a relationship with MGM in late 2004, but it wasn't until around mid (or late) 2005 that they started handling the distribution on DVD. The only TV releases that I can recall which came out from MGM under Sony are Green Acres S3 and...

    Time/Life Press Release: The Carol Burnett Show: The Ultimate Collection

    I received my replacement Disc 1 today and all is well with it now (as expected).

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Having not seen the uncut versions of any episode when originally aired, I can't say what is "right" vs. "wrong," but there are 11 episodes on the set which run about 43 minutes or shorter. Almost all are on the One More Time collection (which actually doesn't even say uncut on the back), but...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    I indeed have that defective Disc 1... I thought it was just my Blu-ray player (since it has been acting up a bit lately and it worked fine on my DVD player) but I'm glad to know this time it isn't my player!

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Well.. I've already done it, broken Carol's head on the set! I wasn't careful enough when sliding down the curtain. Luckily it wasn't completely torn off and a little dab of rubber cement has put it back into place without any visible damage to the packaging. I think I'm going to just pull all...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    It is hard to give a full assessment of the set considering that I've only been constantly watching the episodes so far, but from what I've actually seen so far (and from looking through all of the individual booklets and packaging of the discs I probably won't get to for a while), I'm impressed...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    They put a helpful red sticker on the plastic wrap with instructions on how to open it, so I got it all figured out without doing any harm to the set. There is also a "finger cutout" at the top to aid in pulling it out. Oh and interestingly enough, the curtain smells like wallpaper paste! (it is...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    Ha as a matter of fact, yes, Louisville... ALTHOUGH I should also add that mine was actually a review copy, which means that mine was possibly sent out a day or so earlier. (Just checked, mine was actually sent two day on Wednesday, so looks like they handled the review copies in a slightly...

    Any news on a Carol Burnett Show DVD?

    I JUST received my copy of this set from FedEx about five minutes ago... I've never bought any of the DVDs of this in the past and I'm not old enough to remember the original airing of the series, so my only exposure to the series has been the syndicated "and Friends" version... needless to say...

    What's Up with CBS's DVD-R Releases?

    I would certainly look into whether or not it was a bootleg set. I bought a Numb3rs DVD set a while back from a seller on amazon.com that looked very authentic, down to the packaging and discs... it was even a pressed set. But in watching the set, I could tell something was off with the quality...

    The Donna Reed Show: SEASON 4

    Yeah, that was exactly what I heard from Antenna TV... they really did want the show, but couldn't get it under the "right terms" or whatever, which to me sounds like they were going after the ones Sony owned (seasons 6-8) and would only be able to AIR the ones in that subset that Sony has...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    I don't really remember the show having that much music... although there was the Whitney Houston episode (which, of course, had a ton of it). I also remember the song "Broken Wings" being played for a few seconds in one of the fourth or fifth season episodes, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't an...

    The Jeffersons: The Complete Series?

    Actually, there is one special feature NOT included on that very long list which is (I think) very much reasonable and should be included in such a set... the entire series of the spinoff Checking In. It only lasted four episodes, and ironically, The Jeffersons actually had more episodes (five...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    I think we all got some posts crossed and mismatched here, ha, so I should clarify. Sony did release season 1 in 2007. Somebody else posted about Shout! supposedly having plans to release season 1 before ultimately Sony did... I'm not sure if there were any such plans, but the only thing close...

    Shout! Factory TV Shows Thread

    In 2005, there were some credible rumors floating around that Sony was planning to release season 1, but shelved it. Once it was shelved, somebody who wasn't connected to Sony (but does have knowledge about the series) said that it was shelved due to poor sales of other series including...

    The Donna Reed Show: SEASON 4

    Me TV is scheduled to air Donna Reed weekdays at 7:30 AM beginning in September, any idea which episodes these will be? It sounds like the sixth and seventh season won't be among those based upon that article.

    Any News On Paramount Releasing Cannon Season 3 Volume 1?

    I didn't think it looked bad either, and I certainly didn't see any alarming issues... I mean it wasn't the greatest looking series I've ever seen on DVD, but I've seen far, far worse (like the Room 222 release by Shout!). I think the bigger problem with it was that a lot of people had greater...

    CBS Status Report

    I don't think it has anything to do with it either (although there have been "conspiracy theorists" who say otherwise)... I was just mentioning it since CBS and Family Ties was brought up. Honestly I don't think any of those lawsuits which CBS has faced... and there've been plenty... are the...

    CBS Status Report

    CBS has the distribution rights for the series for pretty much everything as far as I know (DVD, TV distribution, etc.) since it was produced by Paramount, it was only broadcast on NBC. Also, CBS was also the one to release it on DVD and slapped with that lawsuit over using that theme song from...

    CBS Status Report

    Family Ties is one that is stalled... season 5 was released 3 1/2 years ago, two more seasons remaining.

    The Jack Benny Program Right Holders

    Antenna TV doesn't air any public domain programming at the moment. Jack Benny was acquired through Universal late last year after RTV (which actually does air some public domain material now, but did not at the time) lost the rights to all of the Universal programming that they air. I may be...

    The Jack Benny Program Right Holders

    Here is something that I find interesting about this set... it will contain 24 episodes according to Movies Unlimited and has the title "The Lost Episodes." Now, there was this story a few years ago about CBS uncovering "about 25" lost episodes...

    ANTENNA TV: Burns & Allen, Rin Tin Tin, Circus Boy back on the schedule

    I know that they've got Barney Miller and Benson coming in the fall, but those aren't exactly huge programming changes... in fact, from what I understand, even those series are only going to air Sunday nights.

    THE LUCY SHOW 6th and Final Season

    I don't think it is necessarily clear that Paramount can even release it. I don't think it is theirs (although it could be since it was an Aaron Spelling series, and some, though not all, of those have gone over to Paramount), but I do know that it was distributed by Warner for TV (including the...

    Too close for comfort?

    There seems to be SOME hope for Chico and the Man. A while back on the Warner Archive Facebook page, somebody asked about Chico and the Man and they responded by saying that the series was actually being looked into for a a standard mass market release (there was a thread about it here even...

    Too close for comfort?

    Basically, what happened was Rhino decided to pull out of the TV on DVD business. They planned the third (and final season) of My Favorite Martian as well (and were even talking about special features), but that was also abandoned. Both of those releases had box art and tentative release dates...

    all in the family

    Of course, to contradict my own point, there are also instances where they did redo the DVDs, like with the first two seasons of Leave it to Beaver for that complete series set (of course, that could be due to the fact that Universal's disc authoring practices were so much different from those...

    all in the family

    If I had to guess, I would say that the discs for all of the seasons that Sony released will be exactly the same as once you put in the DVD (they'll probably change the labels on the discs though). Barney Miller, for example, reused the exact same discs as Sony for seasons 1-3 on the complete...

    Cold Case

    There was an issue when the show premiered regarding the idea being "stolen" from the producers of the Canadian series Cold Squad. I don't think the Cold Squad producers ever actually took legal action, but they did retain an attorney to do just that. I really do wish that they would release...
