    The Complete Carol Burnett Show on Shout Factory TV (actually not even half)

    I agree. I respect everyone who complains about not getting the full series (which I also want), but I don’t think it will happen. I think we were incredibly lucky to get what we did get on dvd and I don’t think any amount of posting, boycotting, or anything else will change it and get the...

    What's the last TV DVD/Blu-ray you bought?

    I splurged and got Star Trek: The Next Generation: Complete Series on blu ray

    American TV shows that only got complete disc releases in other countries

    It sometimes shows up as used, which can be a risk depending on its history. I found it used in December, but it is not a cheap set used usually. I saw it in December and got it for a price I could live with and I got lucky with a pressed set that works. If you’re looking, keep an eye on that...

    Pre-Order Downton Abbey: Limited Edition Gift Set (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    This is also the movie. The description on the page is the film plot. It is just a limited edition version of the movie.

    Which modern current tv shows do you still buy on dvd?

    I get what you are saying but I also have used the dvd releases to just stick with the seasons/endings I like, even when those seasons end in cliffhangers. Some examples of this are Castle, Scorpion, and Body of Proof. I liked the other seasons but did not get into the last seasons so I sort...

    Which modern current tv shows do you still buy on dvd?

    I don’t really buy many current tv shows anymore. The only one I buy is Big Bang Theory (and I get that in Blu-Ray, but would get that in DVD if it was all that was available). I sometimes will buy other seasons of shows I have heard about or missed just to catch up such as this year I will...

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

    Digital media only lasts online if it is saved by others. Once the original website is gone, so is anything nobody copied. There are many sites and data that no longer exist (many geocites for example or tvshowsondvd) that were not saved and are gone. Internet archive works to a degree but...

    TV shows most rare on DVD

    Some of the region 1 releases released only in Canada might qualify, such as Joey: Season 2. I know at times when I looked it up it appeared scarce

    The Official Disney Movie Club Blu-ray Exclusives Thread

    There is and I do agree with what you are saying but personally I can see them going either way on this. They have been extreme enough that I think they could try to drop physical media and hurt themselves. On the other hand they could also go the route of keeping physical media now and...

    Seasons of Shows with Cross over not included

    ER is missing the third watch crossover, third watch never released the season with the crossover so it was never released on dvd. Bones did not include the sleepy hollow crossover (but it can be found on sleepy hollow season 3) Murder She Wrote did include the crossover with Magnum PI but...

    What is your packaging Preference

    I like the multidisc packaging for each series mainly because it saves space. I do agree the manufacturers need to figure out something for when it ships because the discs get loose and move around. But once it gets to (and stays on) my shelves that’s not a problem. What I really don’t like...

    Disney's Take Over of Fox TV Entertainment

    While I (reluctantly) agree that eventually streaming will be the new norm, Disney really will need to be careful or they could shout themselves in the foot (so to speak). I am against the deal for a variety of reasons. People have been predicting the immediate demise of DVDs/blu rays for at...

    If TV DVD leaves us?

    I am ok with multiple story lines as long as they work together ok. I think there are problems with this recently due to the length of some of these sitcoms. I was watching an episode of Big Bang Theory in dvd from last season that was not even 20 min long. Each year it feels more that we are...

    If TV DVD leaves us?

    Interesting comments so far. I did grow up with cable but did manage to see some classic shows (I was a nick at nite fan and watched it even when younger) and saw a few other shows on regular stations throughout the day in the summer, so while I haven’t seen all old shows, I have seen (or at...

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

    Best Buy used to be a place I would go anytime I was near one (unfortunately I did not live near one very often). I loved looking through their DVDs and even shopped enough to get the reward certificates. I ran into the same trouble you had with reward certificates about 3 years ago and even...

    DVD Sets depreciating in value

    I have had a select few DVDs fail, but that is very rare so far (knock on wood :) ). As for dvd values, I have seen some fluctuate in value and go down but generally the ones that I notice go down are movies that get rereleased (even if the earlier edition was better). The ones I find the most...

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

    Yes, but it is not a pissing contest about whether streaming or DVDs, or cds or anything else is better. When this thread started I found it interesting to see the discussion on what the stores are doing and how that affects physical media. While I may not like it, it still started as a good...

    Stranger things season 2 Target exclusive

    Thanks. I was just curious because Netflix had some interviews with the cast they put on their service and I wasn’t sure if they decided to transfer them to the blu ray.

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    I’m not sure (I’m not familiar with the show). It could be, but my point was that a lot of the shows that have been stalled or not released have reasons (the most common I see are music rights, fighting over the rights of the show, or lower sales/sales not as high as studio wants) although...

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    I am very sorry to see tvshowsondvd go. It was a great site. I don’t know the reasons but it didn’t surprise me. I did not really buy the maintenance story. It just didn’t fit. One thing I will say (although I am speculating) is that Gord’s statement about the owners and it is out of his...

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    They have a new statement up now. Unfortunately they are going to twitter and Facebook. I hope they use Facebook as I do not use twitter at all. I was hoping they would at least keep the old website’s info as it was useful when looking up things.

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    I hope it is just updating as well. It is the only website that I still check daily from the earlier days of dvd. All the other websites I used to check are either gone or are a small shadow of what they once were and are not useful anymore. While there has been less news on tvshowsondvd...

    tvshowsondvd.com is down

    Has anybody heard anything about tvshowsondvd.com. For the past several days it has been down for maintenance anytime I go to it. I just wanted to see if anyone had heard anything about that or when it might be back up?

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

    I think you have some good points but there is a major one that is missed. Many younger people flat out refuse to watch older movies/tv shows, particularly ones in black and white. If it is not in color or the special effects are not current it does not exist (with a select few exceptions)...

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

    I used to frequent the Fry’s in Downers Grove IL when I lived there. It was always so special. If I was looking for a dvd that was slightly unusual or hard to find I could find it there. Their selection was awesome. I visit that area once a year and the last couple of years when I went to...

    Predictions for 2018

    I’m not really sure what to even predict anymore, but I do hope they someday go through and finish off some of the spin off series (such as Golden Palace, the Brady Brides, The Ropers, threes a crowd, etc). They may not be the best, but frankly some of these series do not feel fully complete...
