    Man...that is ALWAYS the kind of situation which causes me to think to myself..."where are the cops when you need 'em?!?" :D In your case, they were RIGHT THERE!! :thumbsup:

    When we [here at HTF] and in the world at large get along. Sometimes when folks don't agree it becomes contentious.

    Yep, and he was parked in plain sight so I'm not sure how the guy missed him. Or maybe he just didn't care. Hopefully he was a jerk to the cop, too, and got the maximum ticket.
    Yeah, I'm always thinking that, too, but it doesn't happen most of the time.

    I believe there was one other time when I was driving on the interstate and a car blew by me like I was stopped, they must have been going 90-100 mph anyway, and I was thinking too bad there's not a cop around. Then a few miles up the road I saw they had been pulled over. :D

    Yes I’ll see this type of thing once in a blue moon- a guy driving like he/she is on the Autobahn, then has to stop for the red/blue
    lights behind him/her. :lol:

    I drive a tractor trailer for a living, so I see more bad/dumb drivers than I see police cars,
    unfortunately. :P

    Did a little experiment earlier w/that M Squad release: my father is a member of a site called MyHeritage, and has a family tree there. The site just added a feature where you can colorize old photos, so I decided to have a go with it and find out what M Squad would look like if it were colorized like many other old shows and movies have been. The results, at least to me, were quite intriguing (I used the second-season episode "The Fire Makers," OAD Friday, April 17, 1959 on NBC). I not only did a few scenes from that episode, but also the title card of the show from the second and third seasons, and Lee Marvin's card from those latter two seasons.

    @bmasters9 I had forgotten Lee Marvin did a TV series. I’m sure I must of watched it, but I have no memory of it. Is that a two-handed grip Lee is using. Probably on the cutting edge for a TV show. When think of the number of times I’ve watched an actor jab a gun at the target...oh brother.

    Which will paradoxically allow you the financing to buy more discs but eat away at the time you have to watch them!

    Ahhh... it's all clear now! *That's* why you purchased it a 2nd time. I'd do the same (and have - just not with that one).

    yep. The only things I have on Flippers that I probably won’t be able to replace is Silk Stalkings seasons 4 and 5.

    Some things still are flippers. I recently purchased "Green Acres" from Walmart-- flippers! By the way, what a disappointment! What I thought was hilarious in first run seemed totally stupid now.

    Those are the original releases - the set from Shout is all SS discs.

    Back during the original airings I thought it was totally stupid. Today I love it for how surrealistic it feels and consider it to be quite intelligent looked at from that aspect.

    I have the Original Law&Order Season 1-20. which I purchased individually. The Packaging for Season 1-8 original releases was bulky and Seasons 2-4 O-R Are Flippers. If you were me, would you Repurchase all of the first 8 Seasons in the repackaging? Or would you just replace Seasons 2-4?

    I'd probably replace those double copies (double-sided, that is) of the second, third and fourth gos if there were singles available.
