    Other CBS Shows VEI could release

    I'll say it again. I know this is against the grain of the actual subject matter, but something needs to be done with The Beverly Hillbillies. Constantly Being Stalled started releasing it in 2008, 12 years ago. That should have long been completed. There isn't any major music to be cleared...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I'm pondering if I want to revisit that one. Before Netflix pulled all of the Universal shows a few years back, I watched it and it seemed to do fairly good for me. Yes, it's the original release. I picked it up at Walmart at a fairly good price. My boys were still pre-teens, and I bought in...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I'm working my way through S2 of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. It's another show I loved as a kid/teen but haven't had much chance to view it since. I bought the DVD set several years ago, and I don't think I ever got through it. It's another case of jumping the shark. S1 was pretty stellar...

    Johnny makes up for the small quibble by doing the Hank Williams classic, I Saw the Light!

    I'm thinking that was probably the case.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I finished Wonder Woman last night. I was saddened to hear of Lyle's passing as he was a great actor. I only wound up with 5 bad episodes total in the whole series, so I'm glad I didn't go the digital route. I did do a test run of the SD version on Amazon by buying an episode. Oh, no, don't do...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Aside from the missing S1 disc, which I know played flawlessly, all of Wonder Woman S1 is fine, so I'm going to digitally purchase the handful I don't have. I started S2 tonight. Disc 1, Side A plays 1 episode flawlessly, while the next 2 freeze and jump so bad that they are not watchable. Side...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Yes, they are cropped and tight. It's not as evident during the episode itself, but the credits are framed absolutely so tight that some of the stars with the credits at the beginning are cropped off at the top. I "think" you can buy SD episodes on Amazon, so for the particular discs that won't...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I decided to give Wonder Woman a binge. I wanted, first of all, to see what discs are good and what ones aren't. I have somehow lost the first disc of S1, so I watched side A of disc 2 without a problem. I'm thinking that problems didn't start to crop up until S3. The episodes look good for SD...

    The New, Original Wonder Woman

    That's when I got mine. It came up on my Facebook memories a few weeks ago. Walmart had it at a bargain price, and I didn't even think to check to see if it was double sided or single sided discs when I snagged it. I could kick myself for that; I was a member of this forum then, and I knew very...

    The New, Original Wonder Woman

    Amazon as well. I MIGHT splurge for it on Amazon. I just hate to buy stuff digitally due to a bad experience with doing music that way in the past.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Google says Vudu has The Saint. Vudu begs to differ! They do have the Bond movies to rent or buy, but I prefer to go with Amazon as I have Amazon gift cards from the surveys I do. They do have The Curse of the Pink Panther available for free streaming with Roger, so I'm going to watch that soon...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I finished off The Saint tonight. I knew it seemed to be moving awfully fast. Amazon isn't streaming nearly all of the color episodes. I think, at least by spot check, all of the b&w seasons were complete. I'll have to add it to my want list on DVD. I was going to see if Amazon had The...

    Episodes of Classic TV Shows Out Of Syndication

    Speaking of M*A*S*H, what about After M*A*S*H? Did it ever get syndicated at any point? I know there are some episodes available on YouTube.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    It's on Prime. I saw several of our forum members talking about it a couple of weeks ago. I had just finished up Yancy Derringer on Prime and was looking for a new show to stream. I think I do want to invest in the DVD set, though. My DSL connection is lousy, and I often get either a lousy...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Now for a question. I've never been a fan of the Bond franchise, but watching Sir Roger Moore has me rethinking that. As a fan of The Saint, would I enjoy his interpretation of 007? I know I'm out of the realm of TV, but I'm seriously curious. I know several actors have had the Bond role. Would...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I'm about 1/3 of the way through S6 of The Saint. I really haven't found a weak episode, although a few here and there were a bit less top notch. Roger Moore's cockiness as Simon Templar is funny. I chuckle when the halo appears above his head, especially with the look he gives. No matter what...

    Episodes of Classic TV Shows Out Of Syndication

    You hit the nail on the head. ONE PERSON complained to Me-TV about it. A friend pointed it out to me on Facebook. A number of us went to bat for the episodes in question, and more than one person told the woman that if she was offended, don't watch it. Instead of listening to the multiple people...

    The New, Original Wonder Woman

    I would happily double dip for blu even if it wasn't corrected to that. I purchased the DVD's a few years ago (3, I believe), and they are the horrible flipper discs with half of the shows unwatchable.

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    I can go either way, personally. Streaming has allowed me to watch shows I never saw in syndication. I'm on a very limited income right now, so plunking down $$$ for a show I don't even know is a no-go. Right now, for instance, I'm watching The Saint. I had never watched it, yet thanks to...

    Just checking in to say I'm on episode 5 of The Saint. I'm hooked already! I was sort of surprised to see Robert Easton turn up as an American ambassador. He, of course, played Beauregard Short on The Beverly Hillbillies among other "hick" roles. He also had a bit part in the movie adaptation of...

    And it just so happens that Amazon just gave me a suggestion for The Saint since I watched Yancy Derringer. It looks like one that'll keep me busy for a while!

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I finished up Renegade. It really picked up steam towards the end. I'd always thought it similar to The Fugitive with a man being on the run that was falsely accused.The final episode even had that feel to it. Instead of a one armed man, though, we had a crooked cop. His boss, played by Kent...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Yes, that's the one. Admittedly, it gets tiring towards the end. They were really reaching at the tail end of S4 and then S5. They brought in Johnny Cash as a bounty that Reno picks up. They're both busted as a cop recognizes Reno. Once in the cell, Reno starts lamenting he wishes he would've...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    I promise that I haven't disappeared! I finished up Green Acres. Prime isn't showing every episode, so it seems I missed out on the last two episodes that were not so good. I then watched Return to Green Acres on YouTube. Reunion movies are never as good as the original show, but in this case...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Thanks. I'm not even overly familiar with GA, but I was able to pick up right away on an abrupt edit on a particular episode. I paused it to see the running time, and it was 22 minutes and some change. Every S3 episode has been that way so far. I don't know if next few seasons will be complete...

    Green Acres Complete Series 10/17/17

    Great news. I'm enjoying it, edited episodes and all, but I didn't want to invest in the DVD set if they were edited.

    Green Acres Complete Series 10/17/17

    Can somebody confirm they're uncut? I'm streaming S3 on Amazon right now and almost every episode is edited with very jarring cuts.
  29. Ron1973

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Quick question. Are there any edited episodes in the DVD set? I'm into S3 streaming and almost every episode is clocking in at 22:03 with some quite noticeable edits. I was wanting to invest in the set anyway, but now I want to make sure they all clock in at around 25 minutes like they're...
