    Praise for CBS TV on DVD

    Having gone through a pair of new CBS releases (Bull and Blue Bloods), I have to put in a good word for how CBS handles menus. You get their quick logo, followed by the piracy warning and right to the episode list. No fuss, no feathers, no wading through previews of long-gone movies or promos of...

    DVD9 - Industry Standard for TV on DVD?

    Is it true that most TV show releases on DVD use DVD9 discs? This would certainly be the case with shows like Star Trek (The Original Series) and Mission: Impossible, as there are at most four one-hour episodes per disc. There are some releases, though, that use the cheaper DVD5 discs (up to...

    Is Warner's Archive ever going to release season 2 of this great TV Western "Paradise" with Lee Horsley and also season 3 of with the re-titled name "Guns of Paradise".
