    Rescue From Gilligan's Island (1978) (4k UHD Combo) Available for order

    The episode of Get Smart that I watched last night definitely uses the lagoon and environs in it. Get Smart | Season 5, Episode 6: "Smart Fell on Alabama" Aired: October 31, 1969. I never really understood the title of this episode, nor looked anything up about it, but having done so just now...

    Official 2024 Oscar Nominations And Discussion Thread

    SAG gives out a STUNT ENSEMBLE award for TV and FILM. They never show the award being given on their telecast and they never even announce on air who won. From what I've seen over the years, the film that wins is usually the film with the most "visual effects," whether or not there is any...

    International Hellzapoppin' (1941) on region free Blu-ray from Anolis (Germany)!

    ^^^ Some years ago the once titled Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles had a surreptitious word-of-mouth showing one Sunday afternoon of this film! I was there to see a film and this was mentioned by the management. I don't know any other details.

    2024 MLB Season

    Some posters have been mentioning all the pitchers who've been sidelined lately. I saw this list as of today. The number of pitchers on the IL and, in parentheses, the team's total number of players on the IL. Dodgers, 12 (15) Chicago Cubs, 9 (11) Houston Astros, 9 (11) Milwaukee Brewers, 9...

    2024 MLB Season

    Not for Bobby Miller. After watching the worst start of his major-league career on Tuesday night, the Dodgers decided there was no place for Bobby Miller in their starting rotation – even depleted as it is. The 25-year-old right-hander was optioned to the minor leagues on Wednesday. And...

    Press Release Mill Creek Press Release: Bewitched - The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    I remember that name; Roger Mobley played Gallagher in that series of programs on Disney's show. I have not seen that Route 66 episode. I looked him up, he had a lot of experiences. He was drafted. Served in the US Army as a Green Beret from 1968-70. He volunteered for an extra year so that he...

    Press Release Mill Creek Press Release: Bewitched - The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

    This episode was Season 6's "Just a Kid Again" (where Tabitha turns the 32 year old toy salesman back into a young boy) and is one of the best of that season, largely because of the young actor, Richard Powell (Dick Powell, heh!) and this episode was only the first or second role he had. He...

    2024 MLB Season

    Regarding the All-Star Game, I do enjoy it for the most part, for at least awhile. I also like the Stand Up to Cancer moment when everyone holds up a placard with someone's name who was close to them who's been affected by it. So many people. I suppose some who blessedly have had no one in...

    2024 MLB Season

    I think that if something being at stake was relevant to the players, the games actually would've felt more competitive. I don't happen to think awarding the WS home field advantage to the League winning the All Star game was any incentive to the players. Most of them knew by that time they...

    So the Dodgers played the Milwaukee Brewers last night with their catcher Willson Contreras voted the starting catcher for the National League in the All Star Game. Offensive: Contreras-1 base on balls. Smith-2 bases on balls, 3 home runs. Smith became the fourth catcher in Dodgers history to...

    I care more about the episodes than if the credits have a different copyright on it and I'm fine with the colorized versions.

    Oops! Home field advantage in the World Series was determined by the league that won the All-Star Game from 2003-2016. Previously, home-field advantage in the World Series alternated between the two leagues each year. Since 2017, home-field advantage has been awarded to the World Series team...

    Does anyone do the All-Star voting? I've been doing it, but I think it's crap. I knew the final round was July 1-3 and I just did it. I had been doing it around noon and just happened to do it a few minutes ago today. It's 9am in L.A. and I noticed that's the cut-off here; the East coast got to...

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: Columbia Classics 4k Ultra HD Collection Volume 5 (4k UHD)

    I don't like that version of Little Women at all, either. The 1994 version is far superior. Speaking of if you're in the L.A. area: The AMPAS Museum is celebrating Columbia's 100th Anniversary this summer. Oscar Sundays Program, June-August. June: Dr. Strangelove in 4K It Happened One Night...

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Rose Tattoo -- in Blu-ray

    This is just my personal opinion. I do like this movie and I've seen stage performances of The Rose Tattoo, but I've always thought it was a big mistake not to film this movie in color, especially since it was shot on location. The b&w photography seems to give the story a cool air and not the...

    The Mod Squad

    The amusement park is probably Pacific Ocean Park which closed down in 1967. I believe The Fugitive used it in the two part finale episodes. It was also used in The Invaders and an episode of Get Smart. Most likely many other shows, too.

    Interesting stat going on with Miguel Rojas and the Dodgers that fans and broadcasters have been paying attention to: When Rojas gets a hit, the Dodgers win. --23-0 when Miguel Rojas gets a hit. And also: --16-0 when he scores a run --12-0 when he drives in a run -- 3-0 when he steals a base...

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: All of Us Strangers (2023) (4k UHD Combo) (Blu-ray)

    Most likely would have waited for this, but it was released a week ago in Britain and I'd pre-ordered a Blu-Ray on Amazon UK. It's being released Region Free. I received it last Friday and watched it already. It has a couple short features and a poster included. Price was also excellent. I had...

    Well...let's see...first I'll have to see/look if I can locate that computer disc (I hope it's a disc, heh!) it's on; that was quite a long time ago. If not I only have a printed copy. Anyway, I'll pm anything further, but when...I don't know. So be patient. ;)

    2024 MLB Season

    The Dodgers have had too many games recently where they've given up a lot of runs all at once and not been able to come back. Last night Colorado had gotten 4 runs in the 1st inning (!) off Walker Buehler. And three times after that when the Dodgers got a run in an inning, Colorado answered...
