Is the under-$100 price still in effect? If so, would you (or another member) please provide a link?Barnaby Jones is a great show! I haven't gotten it yet after being so disappointed with the Hotel release. Amazon Canada has it the cheapest at under 100 dollars for the complete series. I thought of picking it up there but I am going to wait to hear/see reviews on how the picture quality is. I am going to try to get it the cheapest I can.
The release sounds decent minus the edits….probably why the PQ is better since it seems its the syndicated versions. I'll probably get it when the price drops.Bryan^H said:Packaging is perfect as usual. Picture discs, episode titles per disc, and synopsis with air date provided on season cases. I will post pics later tonight.
Picture quality Is decent(better than I expected) sampling from seasons 3, and 6. A sad shame it isn't closed captioned( just season 1)as my mom really loves this show and is quite deaf. And here comes trouble-every episode I sampled clocks in at 46 minutes and change the longest being 46:17. This indicates to me that they are syndicated prints, with roughly 3 minutes being cut. Not a deal breaker for me as I am just glad to see all eight seasons on DVD, but complete is always better. And I did only sample a handful of episodes so it's possible some may be complete.
I have been waiting and waiting for Barnaby Jones to continue on dvd since the beautiful remastered 1st season(which is the version included on this set) years ago. And the complete series-or close to it-will likely please most fans of the show. I know I'm happy to own it. I give VEI credit for continuing to release classic titles on DVD.
This inquiring mind would also like to know. While sub-par transfers of complete episodes are disappointing, edited episodes are unacceptable to me. I hate PAL speed-up/time compressed releases, but I'll take them over edited episodes any day.The Obsolete Man said:Are the 46 minute episodes timesped? That I could accept. But syndication edits are unacceptable to me.
