    Just bought season two of The Goldbergs. Really enjoying this show, it has a great cast. I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s so a lot of it really takes me back.

    These are so darn good. I made it up to Full Circle which is the only one I'd seen. I was on the last disc last episode and it hung in all my players and PC. GrrrRRRrrr... just ordered another Full Circle.

    Funny story, I got my mom this years back after seeing it on PBS. 2 years later it's still sitting on her shelf in plastic. Me: mom, did you like Michael Palin's Full Circle I got you 2 years ago? Mom: oh yes, it's wonderful!! ...I don't say nothing, but before I leave I see the set on her shelf with the plastic suddenly removed. :D She does this cause she LOOOOVES me. :D She did actually watch it and got detailed about what she likes. I have no doubt in my mind that she loved it. She wants to travel to many places before she can't. IN her 60s, after surviving breast cancer, she went to China twice and Israel. She's in 70s now had both her knees done. I hope she'll travel some more. These shows remind me of her.

    Fav part of all his series so far (spoiler spoiler spoiler):

    Palin watching a dog that just got his testicles clipped stumble away: "I know how this dog feels...." ROTFL

    Think you'll enjoy that show, Ben...it's a good one! Not all the episodes look great, but overall, I'm very happy with the presentation of the series - and the bonus documentary is pretty good, too.

    Pre-ordered the new Doctor Who Bluray of Tom Baker's first season as the Doctor (Season/series 12 contrary to what is on the set). Cheaper way to get all of the season as well as new bonus info, plus all of the older goodies :D ).

    Very interested in this set, and will be keeping an eye on reviews. Be sure to let us know what you make of the set when you get a chance to dig in, Doug.

    Last night I came home to find out my roommate brought me home 3 new sets for my collection...

    [​IMG]
    Sanford and Son: The Complete Series [​IMG]
    A hit with audiences and critics alike, Sanford And Son is the classic sitcom starring the outrageous comic genius Redd Foxx. A ratings smash, Sanford And Son received a Golden Globe win (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical of Comedy, 1973) for Foxx.

    South Central L.A. junk dealer Fred Sanford (Foxx) and his partner-in-grime, son Lamont (Demond Wilson), are constantly struggling to make ends meet, but Fred always has just one more get-rich-quick scheme up his sleeve, sometimes involving best friend Grady (Whitman Mayo). When he's not haggling over his empire of junk, he's sparring with his sister-in-law, the cantankerous, Bible-thumping Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page).

    Nothing can get you out of the dumps like watching the hilarious exploits of Fred Sanford!

    Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman: The Complete Series [​IMG]
    In an age when women were expected to be seen but not, heard, Dr. Michaela "Mike" Quinn (Jane Seymour) is an independent spirit who forsakes her home in genteel Boston for the rough-and-tumble life on the Western frontier. With a new family and mountain man Bryon Sully (Joe Lando) by her side, Quinn finds a new set of challenges-and rewards-in life as a pioneer.

    Now for the first time, DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN: THE COMPLETE SERIES brings together all six critcally-acclaimed seasons and two feature-length movies of this groundbreaking historical drama. This unique collection traces the entire arc of Dr. Quinn's epic story, from her first step out of the stagecoach in Colorado Springs through the extraordinary romance between her and Sully, the expansion of their family, and the dramatic series finale. All 150 episodes feature unforgettable storylines and a rich cast of characters that bring the timeless themes of the Old West into vivid focus for modern viewers.

    Acclaimed for both its painstaking historical authenticity and its ongoing contemporary relevance, the Emmy® Award-winning DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN: THE COMPLETE SERIES unites each and every moment of one of television's most celebrated family classics.

    I bet you'll be-- with as much stuff as is in the all-in-one of that 1966-71 ABC serial, no wonder it's so expensive!

    It was 40 years ago this weekend I went on my first solo road trip. I hopped on my bicycle and rode it from my home in Redford, Michigan to an upscale mall in Troy, Michigan, a round trip distance of 50 miles. :D I purchased a diamond stickpin (which I gave to my Mother as a Mother's Day gift) from Saks Fifth Avenue and a fancy kite for myself at F.A.O. Schwarz (I said this was an upscale mall) and had lunch a restaurant that specialized in crepes. Why did I do this? Why not! :laugh: The things I did on this trip became things I do today on all my trips out of town (Purchasing gifts and eating a fancy meal before returning home). To commemorate this little adventure I've relieved "The Big River" of the following:

    Dogfights: The Complete Megaseries

    Daredevils of the Red Circle

    Monster and the Ape

    Government Agents vs the Phantom Legion

    Whispering Shadow

    The Adventures of Smilin' Jack

    Mystery Trooper

    King of the Wild

    The Vigilantes are Coming.

    Why did I order these? Why Not! :rolling-smiley:

    50 MILES!?!? Holy Cow! I had a friend who lived ~5 miles outside of town and would ride my bike to his house to visit/play for the day a couple of times a month (I was 11 or 12). It was a very long ride on flat, straight, road (felt like it was much longer than it actually was)! I rode my bike everywhere but had to stop on that ride at least once each way to rest my legs a bit. I just can't imagine a ~50 mile ride!

    You have some nice serials there... :)

    There was a convenience store located about halfway between the mall (Somerset Mall for the record) and my house and they served coca- cola slushes for :banana: FREE! :banana:Naturally I made a rest stop there both coming from and returning home. :D My folks nearly flipped when they saw the bags from the shops I patronized at that mall :eek:, but they treated it as a "boys will be boys" situation and that was that. :laugh: I gave the stickpin to my mother for Mother's Day, I still have the kite I bought there and the stickpin now occupies a spot in a showcase next to my Father's Hole-In-One Trophy. (The ball he used for that ace was one I purchased on a trip to Illinois in 1994). :cheers:
