    THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW Season One Restored!

    I listened to Gilbert Gottfried and Frank Santopadre's commentary for the "Getting A Job" episode just a few weeks ago. Gilbert sure knew his Classic Comedy well!! Terrible news, indeed. Apparently, he had been ill for some time. Rest in peace, Gilbert Gottfried.

    Just to further highlight the top notch level of restoration for TA&CS Season 1, I popped in Disc 2 of the 2010 E1 Entertainment Complete Series DVD release. Below are a pair of comparison screenshots from the POTS AND PANS Episode (S01E09) from when Mr. Fields is touting some very old cheese...

    THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW Season One Restored!

    The fact these Episodes exist in 4K is alone quite reassuring and allows for potential commercial availability at a later date. As it stands, the 1080p Blu-ray transfers are stunning! From LOU'S BIRTHDAY PARTY (THE ABBOTT & COSTELLO SHOW - S01E05): Note: The above Episode, like many others...
