    I think I read something to that effect before-- still, having the show in an excellent all-in-one release to enjoy at any time outweighs that immensely (JMO).

    Part of Dick York's lines when spying on Cyril Delevanti at 12 and a half minutes in. Its also missing on the old Columbia House master so it might have been damage done to the 3-track or a last minute loop.

    The Timeless release was essentially the same quality as aired on MeTV several years ago. I wasn't going to purchase it, but eventually did so after waiting years for the price to drop. It never did. It wasn't the best purchase I ever made, but I'm glad to have it easily accessible and with fewer edits than on the MeTV episodes. The scenes of Chicago, including the bridge by Tribune Tower in the opening credits and various neighborhoods are great.

    I heard the source for alot of the 16mm prints Timeless used originated from a well known film dealer who got the prints when they cleaned out the bonded vaults in the 1980's! The bulk of what Timeless used on M-Squad, Soldiers of Fortune,Checkmate, Riverboat, State Trooper. Arrest & Trial, and a couple of the others came from this one single source!

    Slightly off topic but about the Blu-ray set...I got the whole set for $6 at a pawn shop a few years ago. Not only was it a awesome deal but wow, the quality is impeccable. It’s the Image release. Even the videotape episodes look great.

    I think you got just as much a deal on that Twilight Zone Blu, as you did w/that Friends Blu!
