Discussion in 'TV on DVD and Blu-ray' started by David Von Pein, Nov 23, 2005.
"You never can tell, Beaver .... maybe women like to smell like old catcher's mitts."
There's a TiVo ad on the radio where the TV is talking, asking its owner to get rid of the VCR in favor of a TiVo. At the end, he says, "Oh, and please--ixnay on the Leave it to Beaver reruns!"
I'd kick that stupid TV out of my house.
My son recently bought himself a small videoman type player and he has had LITB in that player watching every episode. He loves it. BTW, he's 15 years old.
I'll be getting me some Beaver later on today!
Merry Christmas, David...and all you other Beaver-philes!
Merry Christmas to you too, Mike. (And everyone.)
And I, too, Greg, would send that talking TV packing due to its horrid taste in sitcoms. A shocking lack of Beaver appreciation!
Merry Christmas to you, too, David, as well as all of our other HTF Beaver pals. Unfortunately, I don't expect I'll be getting this set tomorrow. I will get it with the expected Best Buy gift card as soon as the crowds die down, though. In the meantime, I will go to sleep tonight with visions of your imagined Leave It To Beaver Christmas episode dancing in my head.
Golly! Now I won't be able to get to sleep, on account of thinking of June in a Santa cap, pearls, and maybe a nice red garter belt. You and your multi-angles.
I picked up the Beav today at Costco for $30.29. Don't know if that was a good price or not, but it was right there, so I grabbed it.
I'll agree the picture is surprisingly grainy when compared to the I Love Lucy DVDs, but it's not horrible. It sure is great to finally have this on DVD.
I went looking for more info on the "Small World" pilot, and ran across a review on MovieFreak.com that oddly claims the pilot "has not seen daylight since first broadcast in the 1950s." Bologna! I've seen it before, and I was born in 1965. I wonder if the reviewer just thought that sounded really dramatic.
For just a second (when I saw "review" here in your post) I thought that perhaps it was I who had foolishly put such inaccurate info in my review here. But then I saw that you were referring to somebody else.
Yes, that person is definitely mistaken re. the pilot. I've had it on homemade VHS since about 1988 or so.
JUNE -- "Ward, why don't you ever bring me flowers?"
WARD -- "I'm the kind that says it with seat covers."
Come on, man.
In searching for that picture, I came across one of Evangeline Lilly. SURELY we can agree on that, at least? Hmm?
We now return you to Leave It To Beaver, already in progress.
One last thought on our detour:
On Evangeline Lilly, we can agree. Not on Eve Plumb.
NOW...back to our regularly scheduled thread!
I have no idea about the "Film" dates with regard to LITB, or the "Small World" pilot. But the pilot aired for the first time (in syndication) in April 1957, so it was either filmed in very early '57 or late '56 even.
I got my copy in the mail from amazon a couple days ago,i watched about 5 or 6 random episodes with no problems so far, including the pilot. Hopefully ill get through the set with no problems. No wonder they changed ward and wally, they were terrible in the pilot!
Oh, I didn't think they were terrible at all. But clearly the "magic" cast was the final one!
