    The Carol Burnett Show - Complete Series on Shout Factory TV

    MeTV lists 11 seasons on their site episode guide, but there is nothing in their guide that actually comes from a season 11 episode. Back when Carol Burnett & Friends first went into syndication, they only used episodes from seasons 6-10 to makeup the syndicated package of episodes. I believe...

    The Carol Burnett Show - Complete Series on Shout Factory TV

    It would be nice if the season 11 episodes were included. When MeTV started airing the Carol Burnett & Friends package it didn't included the 25 episodes that were created from season 11. Those haven't been seen in years.

    TV on DVD news roundup

    I wonder if Shout was able to restore more of the original music for Northern Exposure? I refused to buy the butchered versions that were released eons ago. I'd love to have this series as it was one of my very favorites, but I don't want butchered versions. Anyone heard anything? I'm guessing...

    The New, Original Wonder Woman

    I bought each season as it came out and I haven't had any problems with any of them. I rewatched them about three years ago and they still played fine.

    Police Story season 2

    No, the reason for the Barnaby Jones set has cut episodes is because those are the tapes that CBS provided to VEI for transfer. CBS originally released Season and that is why those episodes are complete and uncut. CBS just didn't give VEI decent masters to use.

    Mill Creek's rerelease of SOAP

    Ok, that promo does include a brief scene between Jessica and Benson that does not appear in any other episode. It's at the very beginning of the promo. Jessica is wearing the outfit that she is later wearing in the episode that takes place after Sheriff Tinkler leaves and her and Chester...

    Mill Creek's rerelease of SOAP

    I've heard the same thing for a very long time, but I have not seen any proof of this. The episode is supposedly between Jessica and Benson and they discuss who killed Peter and the fact that everyone is a suspect. From what I remember reading about it (here and other places) it is supposed to...

    Press Release Time/Life Press Release: I Got You Babe: The Best of Sonny & Cher

    Every episode in this set has been edited. Some are severely cut while others are more mild. There are only two episodes that have Cher's solo songs. All of her other solos have been cut. Some are missing the concert segments while others have one of the two songs (if they are done in a medley)...

    Yep. These are the same hacked up episodes that have already been released.

    2020 TV Releases Guesses?

    The issue of music in The Fugitive was a unique case. This was not an issue about songs, but it was about the background score. This was the first instance of the entire background score being systematically wiped out for no other reason than CBS didn't want to take the time, effort or cost to...

    FLIP (a.k.a. The Flip Wilson Show)

    Considering the way Time Life butchered Sonny & Cher, I don't hold out much hope that they'd do any better with Flip Wilson. I'd love to see a large set (50-60 episodes) with complete and unedited episodes from the entire run of the show, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Yep. I'm in the same boat. I've upgraded some things to Blu but for the most part, I'm done.

    Can someone explain the Carol Burnett releases?

    I do not know what the additional two episodes are on the expanded Carol's Favorites set. However, the episodes were included on the Ultimate Set released by Time Life. These were not exclusive never released episodes that were only found on that expanded set. In other words, if you buy the...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: V: The Original Miniseries (Blu-ray)

    The New V...I watched. I kind of hated it. It just was sooooooooooo slow. It spent episode after episode going nowhere. The first season got split with a really long hiatus from November to about March. The viewer momentum was lost. The network (ABC) complained about the declining ratings. It...

    Shazam! (1974-77) gets restoration

    Andy, thanks for the clarification on what may or may not have survived or still exists. Shame on Hallmark if they tossed/destroyed everything. I hope that this is not true. I'd hate to think that Isis and Fat Albert only now exist in the chopped up versions that have been released. The Shout...

    Shazam! (1974-77) gets restoration

    Well, speaking of Isis. Are we sure that the morals segments are all gone for good? The Shazam! segments were found. They were not with their corresponding episodes but in a film can all together since they were filmed after the episodes were shot. Did this change for Isis? If not, then someone...

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    No, "Remembering You" is Carroll O'Connor's solo spot in the 1/10/72 episode. This is the vocal version of the ending theme to All In The Family. The TV Land version that I have had the song missing but it was on YouTube so I did manage to put it back into the correct episode in the correct place.

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    I'll check. I haven't really started going through the set yet. I'm in the middle of Space: 1999, but I'll take a quick look and let you know. Just checked and yes, Remembering You is there and intact where it should be.

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    I just got my set in the mail today. I've started going through it. I started with the Che episodes since that disc has episodes that I don't have. So far, the first episode is all there but I'm only at the Elton John solo number. This number was cut from the Get TV airing but was on the VH1...

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    I just checked and I have the TV Land version of the Sonny & Cher Show Christmas episode. The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour Christmas shows I only have the official DVD versions. Get TV did air one of those a couple of years ago and I am pretty certain it was the one from 12/19/73.

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    Yeah, I saw that. Having Cher involved one would think that these would be the best presentations possible. Sadly, it looks like Time Life just didn't want to pony up the bucks to present these correctly. This is obviously just a quick cash grab and screw the quality. This should have been more...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: V: The Original Miniseries (Blu-ray)

    I tried, oh how I tried, to like the series but it just got dumber and dumber as it went along. For me personally, it ranks right up there with Galactica 1980. It had a downward spiral that had to be seen to be believed. The show was supposed to go to series right after the mini series but NBC...

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    Well, this is a bummer. Looks like this set is going to be crap. I expected better from Time Life. Looks like the only things on the set worth having are the Cher episodes that I don't already have.

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    The list I have shows the Kate Smith episode as airing 1/17/72. According to my list the Carroll O'Connor episode aired 1/10/72. I have both episodes. I haven't watched them in a long time but I can check them out to see what the breakdown of sketches and songs were. The Carroll O'Conner song...

    Well, looks like this will be my stopping point. I'll be content with the first 20 years. I've been hoping season 19 would come out. I thought it would have been last year but I'll take it this year instead.

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    I just checked my episode list and the episode of The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour that is missing the Supremes solo song is from 1/23/74. I found the performance on You Tube so I can put that episode back together in a more complete version. I'll have to check out my Cher Behind The Music for...

    Space:1999 Complete Series from SHOUT FACTORY!

    I've started going through the set and the episodes look amazing. I'm on disc 3 at the moment. I'm watching them in order so I haven't checked out any season 2 episodes yet. I did pop the bonus disc in and watched a few of the interviews. The one with Barbara Bain is kind of flat. Nothing...

    NEW TIME LIFE Release: I Got You Babe: The Best Of The Sonny & Cher (Includes some Cher Shows too!)

    From what Cher has said over the years, she found it increasingly difficult to host a show all on her own. So, she opted to team up with Sonny again. CBS and Cher ended her show December 1975. The last aired episode of Cher was January 4, 1976. Everything got quickly ironed out and within two...
