    I got Maude bootleg years back. Looked amazing! soft bound guide book and all! but the episodes are terrible looking from being cut down.

    the bootleg of Dark Shadows also had a softbound guide book. The real thing has stapled!! lol although it has to be said that the coffin box started coming apart after a short time as I was figuring out, thanks to people here on htf, that it was the chinese terrors of the dvd seas responsible!!! the real coffin has been moved around and around, stuff stacked on it, jammed against stuff, opened closed opend closed opend....etc etc... and still looks great!

    Perhaps I ought to do that with my copy of Universal's condensed all-in-one of The A-Team-- as I'm working on a disc, I'll have a white envelope handy to put that disc in, with a note on progress; that's a great idea, I think!

    I just forget which one I'm on all the time! Also write the name of the show on the piece of paper in case you forget to put it in with the disc. I was doing that all the time too. I make a bunch of strips out of one piece of typing paper and it tucks right in good in the envelop or in the case. :)

    I presume the Region 2 version also includes only the first season. There were seven seasons of Quincy,M.E. (Fall 1976-Spring 83). All the episodes on the Region 1 set are from the first season. Different lengths of episodes don't make a different season. The true second season (1977-78) had 20 hour episodes.

    What about the two-part (hour broadcast) Halloween episode "The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone" which aired a week after "The Flintstones' New Neighbors" on 10/3/80?
    Trivia note: "The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone" pre-empted "Jogging Fever" from its original scheduled airdate and it wasn't broadcast until over a year later.

    Hmm. Well, according to both Wikipedia and IMDB, Quincy had 8 seasons. Season 1 had 4 episodes and season 2 had 13. The U.K. S1 & 2 DVD set has 17 episodes, starting with the pilot and ending with S2 ep 13, "Let Me Light the Way." After a one-month break (after episode 4 aired), the show came back for 13 episodes (from Feb. 2, 1977 to May 27, 1977).

    Not sure why those two sites have separated the first 4 and the second group of 13 into two seasons. I suppose it must be that the first four extended episodes were part of the NBC Mystery Movie wheel, then it became it's own separate series. I didn't watch it when it originally ran, as you likely did...I'm sure it played to audiences, as originally aired, as if it was one season.

    Edited to add: I do see that Jim Rosin's book on the show only lists 7 seasons, so it must have been treated as such in house during production. Weird. But hey, if Universal wants to call them S1 and 2, then that's good enough for me, I guess.

    It was the same way with O-R Dallas on CBS from 1978-91-- Barbara Curran's book on that treats the 5-episode miniseries as its own separate entity, then starts the actual seasonal numbering in 1978-79 (first season), all the way to 1990-91 (the thirteenth and final season). Warner Bros., on the other hand, treats the miniseries and first go as two seasons, and the 1990-91 final season as the fourteenth one (I think that's for purposes of DVD sales; after all, who would want to get a first-season release with just a handful of episodes in that first go [unless you're a Three's Company fan, where Anchor Bay treated the brief first go of that John Ritter ABC comedy as one separate season])?

    Yes, I'm sure that it makes some sort of marketing sense for the studios to do this sort of thing. It does cause a fair amount of consumer confusion at times, though!

    Is it just me or is this one of the worst case designs ever? Hate how they’re stacked and then once you finish with one disc you can’t just put it back in the case because in a little while you’ll have to take it out again to get to the next disc.
    Referring to the A-Team case.

    It certainly is (not just on The A-Team from Universal, but on all of CBS' all-in-one releases that are like that)!

    Just got most of my order today. I started watching Andy on blu ray. the Danny Thomas extra has a lot of out of sync. Also, it's the same on the sponsored parts that are added to the shows. EVerything else ont he sows plays just fine. Anybody else have that problem? I don't remember that happening on the dvds. It happens on the disc 1 and disc 2 of the blus.

    I've been trying to cut back recently. This set for that price makes this difficult... I'll have to look for it here.

    I checked their website and it states the price is good today. It doesn’t say if it’s good tomorrow which is when I’m going to go.
