Disc 3 of the Dr. Who Key to Time set, "The Stones of Blood", won't play on my Toshiba 5109. It only goes as
far as the BBC logo and then freezes. This disc, however,
does play on my Malata. So far, "Power of Kroll" and "The
Armageddon Factor" have played without problems.
Yep, you read right. There is going to be a seventeeth
bonus DVD with the Space: 1999 Mega Set to be released by A & E this month. Details are sketchy but there will reportedly be remastered episodes (probably first season) with audio commentary by Sylvia Anderson, Johnny
The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection was released
on DVD in 1999 and since then no follow-up. I recall
hearing about plans to release the other videos in
the 1997 compilation line on DVD but as yet nothing.
With MGM's admirable record of releasing UA catalog titles, I would think these...
The Martian Chronicles TV miniseries starred Rock Hudson, Roddy McDowall, Bernie Casey, Nicholas Hammond, Barry Morse, Darren McGavin, Bernadette Peters, Fritz Weaver, Gayle Hunnicutt, and an ensemble International cast and sported some excellent visuals of a Martian landscape and colony.
Steed, Purdey, & Gambit are now together on DVD. Contender Video in the U.K. has released all 26 episodes on DVD. I just got my set today and am watching the episodes. Prints are the same as the ones aired on Canada's BRAVO! TV channel in 1998-9, except for "Obsession" and "Lion and the Unicorn"...
I see that there is a release of Dr. Jekyll
& Mr. Hyde coming from Warner on July 23.
But no detals as yet as to which version this is.
Hopefully it's either the Fredric March or Spencer
Tracy version. But probably it's something else.

I've been noticing that a majority of the DVDs to pass through my hands of late have milky swirls that look like blobs in the area around the centre hole of the discs. Not on the data part (milky swirls there are a whole other subject) but on the inner rim. On some discs, they look like bubbles...
Came across a complaint at Amazon.com about the
double Amaray hub causing a TPM feature disc to crack
and then took a look at mine. And to my shock, I
found a scratch on the upper side of the disc
around the centre. It doesn't look like a crack.
Only a scratch. But the question is, what...
The final volume of Star Trek TOS is now in my hands. The transfers of "The Cage" and "Turnabout Intruder" are excellent, but I wonder why the color/B&W 1986 version of "The Cage" is on the disc together with the full color one. Isn't it rather redundant to say nothing of being obsolete. The...
I've just received the Carlton R2 Season 2 boxed set of
Space: 1999 and have sampled all episodes. If A & E uses the exact same transfers, these discs will far outshine the first season discs. All episodes are rich in color and detail and look absolutely pristine, and the episodes that came...
The 1989 Treasure Island is often regarded as the definitive movie version of this story. With Charlton Heston as Long John Silver and Christian Bale as Jim Hawkins and such a distinguished supporting cast as Christopher Lee, Oliver Reed, Julian Glover, and Richard Johnson, not
to mention the...
I just spent a tortuous half-hour extracting
my three Fawlty Towers DVDs from their package.
Rather than give each disc its own keepcase,
BBC and Warner put them in a booklet with
transparent plastic and utterly inflexible
spindles. Putting the package on everything
from tables to carpet...
The thread title is self-explanatory. This Image disc,
a single layer one, breaks into pixels during the Twilight Zone segment. In my Toshiba player,
it completely locks up, and in my Malata, it pixelates slightly but continues to play.
Has anyone bought this disc and experienced the same...
BBC North America and Warner have abandoned plans for
simultaneous releases to VHS and DVD of Doctor Who
serials. The intent had evidently been straight lay releases on DVD of any Who titles yet to be distributed on VHS. Now, we can only expect DVDs of Who titles given the DVD treatment in...
According to Amazon.com's listing for the Cosmos Collector's Edition Set, the studio no longer prints this title. Amazing. From bestseller to out-of-print in little over a half-year. What could have happened? Did everybody all over the world who wanted Cosmos buy it shortly after release and...
With the release of the new Apes movie and the
revived public interest in the franchise, the time is ripe
for not only a re-release of the 5 feature films but a DVD set of the whole 1974 TV series. Is there any chance at all of our seeing that on DVD as well, perhaps in a simultaneous release...
From 1999 until last month, every DVD shipment sent
to me from Amazon.com had been delivered by Purolator
Courier, and no matter how large the shipment, there
was no charge for import taxes or processing.
Now, packages come by one of two carriers. The regular
post and by DHL. There's no...
