    Semi-Tough TV Show question

    Looking into IMDB, I read that the short-lived TV Show version of Semi-Tough was produced by Universal TV. However, the movie it was based on was produced by United Artists (during the Transamerica era). What's up with that?

    Adam-12's pilot episode question

    I was going through Ebay one day, when I found a call sheet for a filming day of an Adam-12 episode. It was for the 1967 pilot episode (better known by its alternate title "Log 1: The Impossible Mission"). Full details right here...

    Question about Make Room for Daddy (a.k.a. The Danny Thomas Show)

    Why did Danny Thomas only allow seasons 5-9 to be syndicated? Also, on a side-note, was Danny Thomas an egomaniac or not?

    Fox's MOD Program

    It's been awhile since the wonderful and cooperative company, Fox (obvious sarcasm there) announced that they were gonna enter the MOD route, and so far, we haven't heard anything about what TV shows they plan on releasing. Now I know what you're thinking: "Give it time, and eventually, they'll...

    M*A*S*H in Blu-Ray

    Surprised Fox hasn't considered remastering all 256 episodes of M*A*S*H for a blu-ray release, given that it's the only pre-Simpsons show that Fox actually cares about enough to release on their own.

    Fox, classic TV, and their licensees

    People like MatthewA and TVonDVDJunkie05 are claiming that Shout's relationship with Fox has gone south and both parties hate each others guts. Yet across the pond, Fox's relationship with Revelation Films is just fine. No disputes whatsoever. They're up to season 5 of L.A. Law, they put out...

    Kansas Undergeround Salt Mine question

    http://www.kansastravel.org/hutchinson/kansasundergroundsaltmuseum2.htm Not sure if this is the right forum, but according to this site, it says that UVS provides secure storage for many companies. Those companies include all but one of the major motion picture studios. Who is the exception?

    Sitcom daytime reruns question

    I've got a question about daytime reruns of sitcoms in general. Were they also cut to a shade under 22 minutes as well like most local syndication reruns?

    Audio on older TV shows

    One thing I noticed about older TV shows, especially from the 70s and 80s is that if you listen carefully, especially on a home theater system, you can faintly hear the voice of one of the actors talking, shortly before we actually see him or her talking. What's all that about?

    Shout! Factory: Why the different lease patterns?

    I just don't get this. I mean, for example: Shout! licensed the entire runs of Ironside, McHale's Navy and Marcus Welby from NBC/Universal. Yet they only licensed seasons 1-4 of Rhoda from Fox and seasons 4 and 5 of The Facts of Life from Sony. What's up with that may I ask? And no, I am not...

    How to spot replaced music on DVD

    I haven't seen this discussed anywhere, but when watching older shows on DVD (particularly from the 70s, 80s, and 90s), what's the best way to spot music replacements? I'm not talking about what happened to The Fugitive and My 3 Sons.

    The Big Valley question

    Why did The Big Valley stop after season 2 vol. 1 was released? Was it due to poor sales? Or was it much like the situation with VCI and Burke's Law (it was a strong seller, but then Fox started demanding for astronomically high prices)?

    Will Crusade in Europe ever be released on DVD

    This was the very first production from 20th Century Fox Television. If not from Fox, then maybe someone else might be able to release it?

    Encoding problems

    How could the most recent DVD releases of Rhoda (S4) and Mad About You (S5) suffer from the exact same encoding problems that plagued the S7 set of All in the Family? Because Rhoda and Mad About You were filmed shows, not videotaped ones.

    Anyone feel a bit letdown by Shout! Select?

    I do. It's not so much the price, or the fact that they don't ship outside of America (common complaints about the service, I live in America, BTW), it's rather the fact that it's not like Warner Archive (sales don't have to be high in order for a series to continue). I get the feeling that...
