    I see that Rhino's box set of the legendary variety show PINK LADY & JEFF has finally streeted. I, for one, feel that my life won't be complete until I can see Pink Lady do their patriotic cover of the Village People's "In the Navy" (Pink-a Lady.../Come on and join your fellow man!) just one more time! :)
    Has anyone picked up the set yet? How does it look?

    I've started to check out the screener I requested. (WHY did I request it? WHY did I choose voluntarily to subject myself to 3hours of THIS??!!) I watched the first two episodes and they looked and sounded about the way you'd expect a 21-year-old TV show to be. Fuzzy, semi-blurry picture and fairly thin monaural sound, but I'm not complaining; they seem fine for what they are. It's not like I thought I'd get reference quality material, and they seem reasonably good for their origins.
    As for the material on the DVDs themselves... painful!

    Oh my Holy Christ in Heaven! Whenever I'd mention Pink Lady and Jeff to people, they'd look at me like I was on Crack. After several years of this, I had begun to convince myself that I had dreamt it. Is it as surreal as I remember it from my childhood?

    Pink Lady and Jeff? Alright!!!
    Any news on boxsets for Shields and Yarnell or the Hudson Brothers?
    God bless the 70s Variety Shows...

    If you have to get your DVDs on the street date, buy them in person at Best Buy or Costco. If you have to get your DVDs at the lowest bargain price available, order them online. Pick one and shut the fuck up.

    Is this as priceless as The Brady Bunch Variety Hour? That DVD is great, but Rhino messed it up with a ton of digital artifacting.

    Colin,
    Are you gonna do a review for your site? Most of the time, these "lesser" releases never get reviews. That's disappointing. It would make one fan's(?) day if you would.

    I don't know. I guess I just figured that since this fine program has such a stellar reputation that more sites might review it. I'm glad you're doing so, though. Thanks a bunch, Colin.
