Yes, that's the reason with Hazel. Nice list of shows, my wife and I enjoy Grantchester, Foyle's War is another favorite. Would like to hear your thoughts on the Ms. Fisher's set.
I snagged the full series set when it first came out. WM put it up for a song - $25.48 - and Amazon did a PM. I purchased a copy from both and sold one back to Amazon a month or so after release for ~$50, essentially getting the series for free.
I'd never seen the series before - during the original airings it came on too late and was too mature for my sister and me to watch. So far I've watched a handful of episodes and really like what I've seen.
You know... I never looked at the manufacturer for Hazel S1 - just kind of assumed it was Shout. That absolutely explains why it's higher priced. They should've done like they've done with several others and included any already released seasons with the deal. Them doing that with Leave it to Beaver is why I no longer have to deal with Universal's horrid DVD18s of that one for S1/S2.
I have Ms. Fisher's... on DVD - purchased it from Hastings as they were going under (and got 'em for a song). They're still sitting on the shelf unwatched.
And I gotta stop looking at this thread as I regularly get new "wants" added... I'd never heard of The Toys that Made Us so had to check it out. Most of the toys the first 2 seasons talk about are outside my realm of experience (I'm a 60s kid but purchased some of what they discuss for my kids) but it looks quite interesting. Onto the wish list it goes...
It's Blu, it's pressed, my needs are met. As for the show itself, I watched that all shortly after it originally aired. It's a good follow-up. The time jump into the 60s keeps the period piece feel going well, the New Ms. Fisher is pretty good, though not as experienced or accomplished yet as her auntie was, there's enough callbacks and tie-ins to the fist series to satisfy you that it's a continuation... basically, it's the same successful Miss Fisher formula in a new decade with new faces. Oh, and the longer, hour and a half movie format gives a little more breathing room, though fewer episodes. Either way, I hope they get around to a season 2.
Ah, what you have is Miss Fisher. This is its sequel, Ms. Fisher! No, I'm not kidding. With either series, though, if you like period shows or detective shows, it's worth a watch.
See... stop reading... I had no idea there's a sequel to that series. The completest says it must go on the list...
So, I guess I shouldn't mention there's a theatrical release of a Miss Fisher movie coming next year?
That's next year... I have the Downton Abbey movie and the Deadwood movie to worry about before then...
Monty Python's Flying Circus Complete Blu-Ray Set
Sony just dumped shows out on DVD left and right with no intention to finish any of them. At least they were and are willing to license stuff out.
The Jetsons - Complete series (IMHO there are no seasons after the 60s one) - BR
So many of the people on this series were also involved in Route 66, one of the great television series of all time, including George Maharis being in a few episodes. This is as good a reason as any as to Naked City's quality.
Since it's seemingly - and oddly - no longer available through Warner Archive's site, I ordered Cheyenne Season 2 through eBay (seasons 3 - 7 show up on WA, but not S2...ditto Lawman S2).
I'm somewhat surprised by this lack of availability. I thought the whole point of the Archive Collection was to keep all released titles available through MOD. But this appears to not be the case (at least at present). I noticed the same thing re: The F.B.I. S1, Part 2 - it doesn't show up on the Archive site either, and shows as OOP on Amazon (only available through Marketplace sellers). Anyone else notice this?
I would guess it's the problems people here are having with the discs, not playing at all, or playing badly...
Not necessarily with TV series but with a few movies. Like you, I thought the purpose of the Archive was so things never had to go OOP so I was rather surprised to find some stuff missing. After all, it's just a set of computer files so when/if ordered the plant pulls up the right file to burn a copy, runs it through a silk screen process for the disc label, prints a case label, slaps it in a case, mails it out. All they have to keep on hand are some empty cases, paper for labels, and mailers.
And very rarely, these files may be lost if the hard drive they're stored in is defective...
