    Why no SD video on Blu-ray Discs?

    Mill Creek is one of the studios I contacted about the idea since their preferred method of release is complete series sets with as few discs as possible. I also thought it would be perfect for them since their packaging of choice has never been that great or protective for standard DVDs. They...

    On Last Two DVD Recorders, What's Next for Home Recording?

    I grew up recording broadcast/cable TV with VCRs and eventually switched to DVD recorders. I currently have one I bought new (and have had a while, so I don't know how much life it has left in it) and one I bought used. When those two die, what's next? I prefer physical media, but the only...

    Why no SD video on Blu-ray Discs?

    Why haven't any studios thought to put SD quality video on blu-ray discs? I know that when people hear blu-ray they immediately associate it with HD video, but there's no reason why blu-ray discs can't also be used to store SD quality video. I mean, blu-rays hold like 5 times the amount of data...

    Shout Factory Leave it to Beaver complete series question

    The cloudiness you all have mentioned is probably disc rot. There was one season in my Leave it to Beaver complete series set that developed disc rot (all 6 discs) and after I sent a message to Shout! about it a couple years ago, they told me they knew of the issue and sent me replacements.

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    I think their release of the Mama's Family complete series set had a lot to do with this, too. When they first released it, there was a lot of information we fans didn't know about the set ahead of time - like syndicated episodes being included, several Harvey Korman intros seemingly missing and...

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    You may be right about Auld Lang Syne and Ride of the Valkyries (I wrote this list in a hurry). But, Amazing Grace was sung by Judy Collins, so even though the song itself is in the public domain, maybe her recording of it isn't?

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    And the clip show "The Wonder Years." I can't remember how it was used in the episode "Swingers." Was it prominent? It must have been expensive to use and they felt it wasn't significant enough to clear for "Swingers" unlike the other episodes?

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    I assume they would since in the list of songs cleared, "The Theme from 'A Summer Place'" is listed, even though that was a movie, but I'm not completely sure. Surely they'd have to clear the rights to those songs, but whether they felt they needed to mention them in the press release or not, I...

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    I've compared the list of "cleared" songs with lists across the internet of all the songs used throughout the series and I've come up with this rough list of the songs NOT included. This is by no means official or complete. If anyone has any to add, please tell us: 2. Swingers "In My Life" by...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    Time Life has officially confirmed on their Facebook page what we all knew already - that the episodes "Cellmates" and "Mama's Boyfriend" are the syndicated edits: The update on their order page is under the Season 1 description (which should be in the description of the set, not in the episode...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    You'd be surprised just how much music the show used. I sat down the other night and watched the first five episodes and there were a bunch of songs - mostly sung by characters. From memory, in "For Better or for Worse" Vint and Naomi sing Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" and the Mr. Ed theme song...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I haven't watched the episode yet, but Time Life said on their Facebook page "Music Replaced: Something." I don't remember what song "Something" is or where in the episode it was, but that's what Time Life posted. Actually, it does work in air date order - now. With the restored Harvey Korman...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    Thanks. I hope I covered everything. I did it in a hurry (why the website has no real coding of any kind). I'll make it look cleaner when I post my full review. I've also updated it with additional edits Time Life posted on their Facebook page. An additional one in "Gert Rides Again," an...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I plan to post a full review of the complete series set once I have time to go through it and watch all the episodes and special features, but until then, I've posted pictures of the set (inside and out) and the full specs (which episodes and special features are on what disc, all their run...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I got my set a little while ago! I'm going through the episodes to time them and check the edits to see how they're handled. By the way, it does appear that "Cellmates" and "Mama's Boyfriend" ARE the syndicated cuts. "Cellmates" runs 21:23 and "Mama's Boyfriend" runs 21:24. Neither of them have...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I'm glad people who ordered them so close to the release date don't have to wait much longer than those of us who pre-ordered early. I pre-ordered mine the day it was announced so I'm really anxious to get it. I checked the status of my shipment via FedEx's website and it's estimated to arrive...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    Sure, Ethan. I'm still surprised they sent me the pictures in the first place. The uniqueness of the box's design probably explains why there were manufacturing problems that lead to the initial delay (but I'm just guessing). Also, I just thought I'd let you all know, I checked the status of my...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I'm going out tomorrow to see if my local stores have the "Mama's Favorites" DVDs. In some of the descriptions online, they list as a bonus, newly created introductions from Vicki Lawrence - since these were her favorites - wherein she provides "insights" into each episode. If that's the case...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    Yeah, I meant that I would watch my syndicated versions taped from TBS and compare them to the ones on the DVD - which are hopefully longer and have more scenes, but if they are identical, then the versions on the DVD are probably the syndicated version (I really hope that's not the case).

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    I really hope those two episodes aren't the syndicated versions. That would be unfortunate. When I heard there was a chance they might be, I pulled out my old VHS tapes of Mama's Family that I taped from TBS years ago (back when they were TBS Superstation) so that when my set comes I can...

    Mama's Family 30th Anniversary

    In case anyone is interested, I contacted Time Life via their Facebook page, asking them about the collector's box the complete series set comes in and what it looks like inside. I knew the box itself wasn't going to be your standard cardboard box just big enough to hold all the seasons in their...
