    I am all in for Gunsmoke S14. Thank you CBS!

    And I'm hoping for more good news for Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction and Bonanza.

    The S13 Gunsmoke release blew away the washed out prints I saw on TV Land.

    And the same with those remastered releases of O-R NBC Star Trek; they made that classic inaugural Trek worth owning, at least for me!

    I prefer a release of Just the Ten of Us, the Growing Pains spinoff.

    One thing I know is that it'll take years for WB Archives to get everything out.

    Very Good News on Gunsmoke Season 14. I wish they would pick up Bonanza Season 9.

    Neil,

    Yes, such a depressing issue for shows like this!

    For all of you DuckTales fans out there, I've got a surprise.

    Apparently Disney has released the final volume to complete the series (ABOUT TIME)

    Copies have started popping up on Ebay. Hopefully this volume will be available on Amazon soon enough, similarly to the TaleSpin final volume.

    I can say the same thing about Wagon Train: Timeless said that it was on NBC from 1957-65, but it switched networks going over to ABC for its last three seasons from 1962-65.

    Why are those mistakes made? Incorrect information from guides, for one?

    Ditto for Arrest and Trial and Alias Smith and Jones, Timeless said they were both on NBC, but they were on ABC, oh BTW, a history lesson, ABC was formerly known as the NBC Blue Network in the old days of radio. The parent company, RCA had two NBC radio networks, the Red and the Blue. They had to sell the Blue in a court ruling on the matter, so Life Savers candy tycoon Edward Noble bought it in 1942, it eventually became ABC!

    I read that there was also an NBC Orange Network for the Pacific coast!

    For those of you who may have missed this, you can also buy The Bad News Bears TV series on DVD at Amazon.

    It lists 2 discs, so that would mean all 12 episodes of the first season are on disc 1, while all the 14 episodes of the second season (the last 3 weren't picked up by CBS originally) are on disc 2 (a la Angie).

    For those of you who have already bought this title when it was first out this past Halloween, what did you think of it in terms of video/audio quality? I know that, as before, the respective 1978 and 1979 Paramount Television logos are intact.

    And that is something that both of us have thought was one of the best things a video releaser has ever done, IINM.

    What I'd like to know about that is, why is VEI going the extra mile lately with accuracy of the times when it comes to the studio end logos on the series that they release (namely Paramount, as seen here, and on Angie, The Powers of Matthew Star, and Petrocelli, among others)?
