I'd rather put it on Me-TV, Decades or Turner Classic Movies... my idea of a "screen saver."
Smart-- all of those know the definition of "classic"!
I used to be one of those people. Then I realized Andy Griffith was a better tv choice instead. I can even see myself watching only my tv on DVD collection. Life is better
Me likewise! We both have alternatives to much of what passes for entertainment today.
I have actually been to “Mayberry” in Mount Airy NC it’s really cool. Now that I’ve been to “Cooter’s” also next on the agenda is Bedrock. City.
I did exactly that a couple of years ago. When I replaced my CRT with a HDTV I intentionally set it up in a part of the room that has no cable connection available (yes, I could run a cable down the wall but why?) because I'd grown bored with the offerings and the constant commercial interruptions. I'd gone down to watching only 3 or 4 cable channels (History, Food Network, Discovery, and TCM) with any regularity and those were used mostly as background noise. Since that day I've not watched "live" TV unless I happen to be in the Living Room and my wife's set is on. My set has 2 game systems (Wii and XBox 360) and a BR player connected. I either watch TVonDVD, movies on disc, or play a game. The TV and BR player are "dumb" devices so there's no streaming. Well... I could with the XBox but don't as I prefer the ease of use, options, and generally higher quality of discs.
We’re huge library users. Our system seems to have just about everything, as far as DVDs and Blu rays. With a click of a mouse it is put on hold and sent to my local branch. Sometimes you wait a bit, but I am in no rush.
I read about “Wrek it Ralph breaks The Internet”. We hadn’t seen the first one. The library copy is here for a week waiting for us to watch.
Every week, I understand a bit more just why the full TSOD site died a quiet death.
Granted, it would've been nice to see the old news pages remain for reference, but there's just no new news to report.
Anyway, I'm surprised Victoria is still getting Blu releases, after PBS stopped Call the Midwife and The Durrells.
It won't be the complete first season. Episode 12 (out of 13) "Primal Urges" won't be broadcast until 1/3/19 (previously scheduled for 12/30/18).
Still nothing on Mayberry RFD Season 2 ..Hopefully soon... It has been almost a year since the re release of Season 1
I'm pretty psyched to see this listed, mainly for the "50 episodes of The Jack Benny Program" (am I to assume these are part of the filmed half-hour shows that Antenna TV was broadcasting a few years ago?)--
Antenna TV shows the 104 episodes that Jack himself hand picked in 1968 for syndication.
50 episodes + 10 specials + 7 other specials = 67. What are they counting as the 68th episode, was this a typo?
There’s also a bigger set with 92 episodes on the website.
92 is bigger than 104?
Sorry for any confusion. The time life set is available with 68 or 92 episodes.
I didn't know there was a link to Time Life in the press release. I went over there and I saw the two options that list 68 and 92 episodes.
Do not be confused about the Jack Benny set.
The 68 episodes includes:
All 10 of Jack’s hour-long color television specials.
50 hilarious episodes of The Jack Benny Program.
Plus 7 other programs starring Jack!
Plus 1, A Love Letter to Jack Benny, a tribute to Jack hosted by his funniest friends.
The "92 episodes" set includes the 68 episodes above,
but the extra 24 (to make it 92) are all Bob Hope specials.
"Plus Thanks For the Memories: The Bob Hope Specials 10 DVD collection, featuring:
24 Bob Hope Specials."
