    I have no idea why Mill Creek has slowed down "Jeannie" and "Charlie's Angels". Hopefully we get more seasons of those 2 very soon.

    Mill Creek is really missing an opportunity by not releasing Charlie's Angels season 5 as a standalone release. If they had anything in that deal that would sell well, that would be it.

    I agree. They did step up and give us a proper pressed edition of "Benson" Season Two, so I still hope.

    I just received Bewitched S5&6 in the mail, and I was surprised to see that it wasn't a hub-type case like their previous releases.

    It came in standard size black case with disc flipper pages.

    On the downside, the episode, "Cousin Serena Strikes Again, Pt. 1" is the same lousy print used on the Sony release. The end credits had dirt and debris.

    Also, some, but not all, episodes have the old Screen Gems logo.

    I was hoping by some small miracle, they may have cleaned up this episode for this release. Too bad, since it's one of my favorites of the season. Part 2 not so much.

    ImageUploadedByHTF1426827771.105053. I didn't see the end credits but I thought Mill Creek's version of "Cousin Serena Strikes Again" Part One wasn't as red as Sony's.

    They also used the same jittery print of "Samantha's Wedding Present."

    They don't remaster anything. That's why it's cheap.

    They are cheap but still very good quality. I don't believe "Bewitched" or any of these Sony properties require any significant remastering, anyway.

    About that T.J. Hooker seasons 1 and 2 release from Mill Creek: it has been said that the first five episodes (namely, the first season) have CPT's Sunburst/Abstract Torch logo, and the remaining episodes (the second season) have the bylineless 80s Torch Lady. If anyone has that release, can you confirm that?

    Thanks for the side-by-side comparison shots. You're right! It doesn't look as red. Maybe they adjusted the tint, or the saturation levels. It does look better than Sony's. However, I don't think it was re-mastered because the picture is still soft and fuzzy when compared to part 2 which is sharper.



    When we say remaster, I don't think anyone is expecting Mill Creek to do the actual re-mastering. I think most of us are just hoping that Sony will provide them with better prints. For example, Mill Creek got the Ben Franklin episode with the "To Be Continued" sign at the end, which wasn't on the Sony set.

    Wonder what it would take to get Mill Cfeek to re-release SANFORD AND SON and then follow up with releases of GRADY and SANFORD??


    You might notice I didn't mention 'Sanfofd Arms'. You know why? I've seen it. No, please just no on that one.


    BUT I would be a solid 'yes' for SANFORD and GRADY.

    I keep hoping they will do HERE COME THE BRIDES, but perhaps it's not popular enough for a re-release. Season One has been OOP for a long time now and commanding huge prices.

    I emailed Mill Creek back in January about Here Comes the Brides, and they emailed me back and said they don't have the rights to that show.

    I'm wondering when we'll get more "Charlie's Angels". They've been pretty consistent with their "Bewitched" releases, meanwhile "Jeannie" seems to have fallen by the wayside.

    They were pretty sloppy with Starsky & Hutch from what I've seen. Freeze frames, picture drop outs, aspect ratio changes, and the sound is terrible. It seems the folks at Mill Creek just don't care...

    That is another one that doesn't make sense. It went OOP right before Shout finally released season 2. You think someone would re release it. It would really benefit Shout to do so. I got my season one about a year ago from a seller at Amazon France (a US copy) for much less than what it was going for here, then found it at Kmart a month later.
