    Isn't this the 1st new VEI release in quite a few months? Seems like they have been pretty quiet since the beginning of this year.

    They previously released The Bad News Bears (TV series) on this Halloween (10/31) and Early Edition in August (and The Powers of Matthew Star this past July).

    It seems to be following a pattern on these rare shows. They get picked up by a digital subchannel and then soon after get released. That happened with Its About Time, The Californians, Man Called Shenandoah and now Dan August. I wonder if both are related or just coincidental.

    Nice to see this, but honestly would have rather had a notice of NYPD release.

    The big question will be: How is the picture quality?
    I expect that it will be only a little better than the William Conrad series at the time and we all know that it wasn´t remastered after all.

    That's a question that will be answered when this release finally comes in, which means we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

    Does VEI also ship to Europe or only within the USA/Canada?

    Just received the set. The good news first: all the episodes, including the telefilm House on Greenapple look great. The telefilm runs an hour and 53 minutes. So it seems to be uncut. On the downside, the hour episodes run between 49 and 50 minutes. For a series from 1970, this means these episodes are probably cut by approximately 5 minutes each. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    I'd guess one of the missing minutes is the opening teasers.

    Why is that pilot movie so long?

    So I stand corrected. I checked a few other series from the same time period and they also run approximately 50 minutes per episode.

    26 episodes (including the pilot), so I would guess about five discs, going by the compressed size of the episodes.

    Not compressed, that would mean about seven discs.

    That's what I wanted to know-- I was thinking about getting this for Christmas, and I wanted to know what I was going to be getting.

    4 discs for 26 episodes ?
    That means 6 respectively 7 episodes per disc and you say the picture quality is excellent?

    How do you know that the picture quality is excellent?

    It´s going to come out in 2 weeks.
