A Bit of a Do - Complete series
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - S1
Perry Mason, S9, 2Harry O, S2, sadly the last season.
Finally bit the bullet yesterday and bought ``Star Trek: The Next Generation'' Seasons 1-4 on Blu-ray, AND ``Star Trek: Enterprise'' Season 1 on Blu-ray. I used my Amazon Rewards points for three of the five sets. I own ALL of the Star Trek series on DVD, with the exception of the Original Series, which I own on Blu-ray. Looking forward to the sets' arrival on Tuesday.
Adam-12, Volume One (Shout!) for $5 at Walmart from the $5 back to school entertainment bin!
Lovejoy - S5
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - S2
Duck Dynasty - S3 (a very guilty pleasure)
Star Trek Next Generation S4 blu-ray (looks fantastic)
The Virginian S4 DVD (haven't watched yet, but the 1st 3 seasons were very good)
Bonanza S5 DVD (haven't watched yet, and don't have the other seasons)
In the recent Network 40% sale I bought:
Danger Man (1961/64)
Man of the World
Currently working through Danger Man. Patrick McGoohan as James Bond would have blown the rest away.
Haven't gotten around to watching any of my new ``Star Trek: The Next Generation'' Blu-ray sets yet, but I did watch the ``Star Trek: Enterprise'' pilot on my new Blu-ray set and it looked fabulous!
Sugarfoot, season 1
I just got S1 of Enterprise and plan to watch some of it soon. Esp. looking forward to the documentary, which is supposed to be eye-opening in terms of the creation of the show.
The Next Generation blu-rays look amaaazing! You'll love the PQ. There are so many details in the costumes, make up, performances, sets, and FX that could barely be seen before that are now very clear. You can tell they were trying for production values that were close to sci fi movie of the day. They didn't always make it, but often they came surprisingly close.
The documentaries are also well done and fascinating. Patrick Stewart almost wasn't cast because he was older and bald, and yet ultimately his audition blew them away. At first, however, they wanted him to wear a hair piece! Thank goodness that idea didn't fly.
As you know, however, the first season has some read dud episodes. But even the first season has some good ones. My favorites are:
Where No One Has Gone Before
The Big Goodbye
Coming of Age
Heart of Glory
The Arsenal of Freedom
A Fine Romance - Complete Collection
The guy I ordered my Dark Shadows Original Complete Series from on ebay won't send it. funny, he had perfect feedback until just recently. Not it's 60%. Loads of complaints. Lovely. I'll probably be canceling today and try to find another. So scratch mine post above for now.
With my Birthday coming up next week I ordered two animated series Super 6 and Hong Kong Phooey from the Big River as presents from me to myself.
Hong Kong Phooey was a favorite of mine when it aired originally. It's a pretty nice set. I was surprised at the very simplistic backgrounds. Of course, many Looney Tunes had that. Not to mention Flintstones... etc...
Fridays - The Best Of
BONANZA Season 6.
GUNSMOKE Season 9.
A Cousin stopped by this evening and gave me a Birthday Card with some moola in it, which I used to relieve The Big River of West Point and Law & Order - Trial by Jury.
Bonanza (Season 5). I plan to get all the Adam seasons (first six) and still need to pick up seasons 2 and 6.
