I believe all of my BF purchases have finally arrived so here goes:


Spartacus: Blood and Sand - S1

The Walking Dead - S1

The Goldbergs - S1

The Guild - S3

Vikings - S3

Black Sails - S1, S2

The Big Bang Theory - S8

The Rifleman - S2/V2

Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Final Cases Collection (S7 - S13) for another completed series


The nice part is the total for all that was just under $140.

I DREAM OF JEANNIE: THE COMPLETE SERIES (The Original Sony Set)


This marks the first time I deliberately ordered a version that includes Episodes that are Colorized only, even though there's a Black & White alternative! I'm sorry, but 139 episodes on 12 DVDs is just way too crammed, in my opinion!


Thus, far better overall higher PQ, via the IDOJ Episodes being spread out over 20 DVDs won out, over having the Season 1 Shows in their Original Black & White, but most likely suffer from visual issues due to overcompression! Besides that, the Sonys were half the price of the recently reissued Millcreeks!


Thankfully for me, this is a Christmas present for my lovely wife, who doesn't concern herself much with such things! :biggrin:


CHEERS! :)

You can usually pick up a "like new" copy of that first season in BW for under $10 and still come out ahead - you get the BW you want and your wife can watch the color. Double win! :)

GILLIGAN'S ISLAND: Season 3 - Single Sided DVD Version:


My GI S1 & S2 sets are of the annoying Double Sided variety! :P


CHEERS! :)
Depending on the price you may want to return S3 and just spring for the complete series set. It's typically only a few $$ more for all three seasons on glorious SS discs. I made that purchase sometime last year and was out a whole ~$15 (US) for a new copy. It regularly goes on sale in the $25 range. BUT... that's one series where I never had any issues with the DS discs so I either got lucky or that one's not one of the problem series.

Hi Howie!


Regarding I DREAM OF JEANNIE, the Sony version of the Season 1 Black & White DVD set is unfortunately priced well over $20 on Amazon Canada! At that price, it just isn't a huge priority for me, though I would spend that for LEAVE IT TO BEAVER season sets, which tend to be ridiculously expensive on our Amazon platform!


About GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, the series set is currently over $40 on Amazon Canada, while I was able to order Season 3 for $11.99, so I don't feel too bad, in that particular case. As it stands, our local Shopper's Drug Mart has the first 2 single sided season sets in a decent price range, so I might just snap those up to replace the double sided sets, at some point.


CHEERS! :)

OUCH! I knew prices were somewhat inflated in The Great White North but WOW! Yeah... that's a bit on the high side, eh? FWIW, all that "Complete Set" does is collect those 3 SS sets and puts them in a slipcase type box.
