I was the same way on Hart to Hart as Shout! finished that up, and now I have all of that one.
Thanks to the wonders of the USPS, those Doctor Who Blus I got on eBay about three weeks ago finally arrived, on the same day the Tennant set did. And, they were real, not bootlegs!
So it all worked out!
Yesterday's arrivals were Twice Upon A Time, and season 11 of Doctor Who, to finish out the collection.
In the mail with the Tennant set was season 10 of Modern Family. A totally bare bones set, with only a gag real, but at least it's still pressed.
But, what I'm watching first is Ken Burns' Country Music, released on Blu (and DVD) today after only two of 8 parts have aired on PBS, and long before it finishes up sometime next week. I don't know why they do it, but I do appreciate PBS rewarding physical media buyers by letting us buy and watch stuff a week before people get it on TV.
Now, back to slow pans and fiddle music.
The Good Fight: Season 3
Modern Family: Season 9
Modern Family: Season 10
I had finally decided to purchase The Flash Seasons 1-4 and Krypton Season 1 on Blu-ray. It's kind of crap that SyFy canceled Krypton. But, then again, I'm not surprised. SyFy should not be producing TV shows because they usually end up canceling them. It's a miracle that Killjoys was able to finish its run. Can't wait for The Flash Season 5 to drop to $14.99 at Best Buy during the Black Friday weekend in November.
Doctor Who - The Complete David Tennant Collection Blu-ray from Barnes & Noble for $22.50 due to their 50% off sale.
Little House on the Prairie season 2,3 and 9
Yeah, if I'd waited two days, I could've saved 10 bucks.
Oh well, I picked up the three Classic Who Blu sets and the 2019 New Year's special Resolution instead, completing my NuWho set just in time to start watching it.
Pre ordered cobra Kai seasons 1-2
The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. - The Complete Series V2 - to complete the series.
I recently raided Amazon Marketplace and Ebay, and collectively scored all four 2-disc out-of-print 'Legacy Collection' volumes of Walt Disney's True-Life Adventures for fairly reasonable prices ($45 for Vol. 1, $22 for Vol. 2, $16 for Vol. 3, $28 for Vol. 4). Not bad at all, considering many sellers regularly price them at $75-to-$100+ a pop.
While they weren't originally made for TV, many got reformatted for network TV broadcast, and the discs also have a few Disneyland episodes (some edited due to redundancy, some not) as bonus features, so I guess they technically qualify for inclusion here.
Good grabs, Peter! I would have liked to have gotten some of these sets back when they were first released. I have a feeling some - perhaps all, eventually - of these Disney Nature films will show up on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. I certainly hope so, anyway...along with stuff like Zorro, The Mickey Mouse Club (classic) and the like.
Many of them (True-Life Adventures) will. Someone here posted a Day One list of what will be on Disney+ :
--and The African Lion, The Jungle Cat, Seal Island, The Living Desert, Secrets of Life, Perri, etc are on there. However, I won't be subscribing to the service, as I already own hard copies of the worthwhile stuff they're offering. Doesn't look like they'll have Zorro, Mickey Mouse Club or Disneyland/Wonderful World of Color/Wonderful World of Disney (nor The Great Locomotive Chase, Third Man on the Mountain, Dr. Syn/Scarecrow of Romney Marsh, Nine Lives of Elfego Baca or Follow Me, Boys) though, or at least, not initially.
Perry Mason seasons 7-9 at Walmart. This was a Roll back. I got it for 22.96!
Great deal! I would get it, but I already have that 7th go, and that would be a duplication; nonetheless, that is still remarkable.
No new TV on DVD purchases to report at the moment, but as I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks, I'm planning to treat myself to a nice, fat prezzie of shiny discs. Thinking it might be time to bite the bullet and order a pile of expensive Warner Archive sets to add to the collection. These are what I've got in my sites:
The Lieutenant, Vol. 2
Hawkins: The Complete TV Movie Collection
Tarzan, S1, Vol. 2
Spenser: For Hire, S1
Definitely won't be picking up all of them, but some for sure.
Just ordered The Lieutenant, Vols. 1 & 2.
Atlantis - S1V1
Doc Martin - Series 2 & 4. Picked up to test the waters. I've enjoyed every series in which I've seen Martin Clunes, have heard good things about this one, and an opportunity to pick up these 2 sets very cheap presented itself. I figure S2 is a good enough place to start for water testing. If I like it I'll pick up S1 $ S3 at least.
I think it'll pan out for you-- hope it does!
Tarzan - Season 1, Part 1
Tarzan - Season 1, Part 2
This is another series I remember watching on Friday nights with my Dad. Couldn't just buy a half season, (too OCD for that ). If it holds up for me, I'll be looking to pick up the final season somewhere down the road.
I Married Joan - Collection #4 - I really wish this one'd get season releases.
