I think the strongest 90s ones were in the second batch released (the most recent one) which had Patrick McGoohan as the campaign advisor...

The McGoohan episode was great indeed. Foiled by cheese!

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Columbo - The Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993 (note the changed year!)

I had hopes that after the long wait they would release the remaining episodes in one set. But this is finally great news!!

Well it looks like Warner is finally going to free from captivity their vintage TV titles as part of the Warner Archive program (which means MOD but we should be used to that).

http://www.facebook.com/warnerarchive

There is a definite commitment on two of my three biggest Grail titles of 60s TV, "The FBI" and "Tarzan" (Ron Ely) and if "Girl From UNCLE" soon follows, then combine that with another company's commitment to "Car 54 Where Are You?" next year and I am literally, LITERALLY done with TV shows from the 60s that I want on DVD. Anything else from that point on would just be icing on the cake (like the remaining 40% of "Naked City")

Where exactly did you see this? I clicked on the link you provided
but didn't see any announcement of Warner releasing their tv shows
on dvd-r. Did they happen to mention SEARCH?

You have to look at a couple of the specific questions and answers under "Just Others."

"Still waiting for Warner to open up the vaults to their TV Classics from the 50s and 60s. How about giving us: 77 Sunset Strip, Surfside 6, Hawaiian Eye, Bourbon Street Beat, The Alaskans, The Dakotas, Roaring 20s, Colt 45, Sugarfoot, Bronco, Dr. Kildare, Mr. Novak, The Lieutenant, Cain's Hundred, The Thin Man, The Ele...venth Hour, Sam Benedict, Asphalt Jungle, Hank, Many Happy Returns, Harry's Girls, Father of the Bride, National Velvet, The FBI, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, The Little People, Adam's Rib, Mayberry RFD, Courtship of Eddie's Father, Eight is Enough, No Time for Sergeants, Wendy and Me, Girl from UNCLE, Conflict, King's Row, Casablanca and the dozens of other shows that are collecting dust on your shelves?"

"Warner Archive Collection: TARZAN, most definitely. THE GREEN HORNET is not ours to release"


"Any chance of having the Quinn Martin/Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. series "The FBI" out on DVD as well? It was a TV rerun staple of my childhood!

"Warner Archive Collection: Inspector Erskine will be on the case beginning early next year....All 9 seasons are planned...and bonus content, to boot!"

I found it. Thanks. I guess an official announcement will be
coming soon from tvshowsondvd. I'm real curious to see how
Warner is going to package these shows - by season or complete series.
I hope they won't be charging 20 dollars per disc.

Warner has released one hour long series already as a MOD, "Falcon Crest" S2 so they clearly aren't going to go the extreme exorbitantly priced route for a one hour show.

Warner Archive reveals one more definite title coming soon. "The Gallant Men" (1962-63; WW2 drama).

Bad news for fans like me of the early days of SNL. From TVShowsonDVD.com:

------------------------
Saturday Night Live - Season Set Outlook is Not So Good for SNL, Studio Says
Music costs contribute to a DVD strategy change, back to best-of releasesPosted by David Lambert
11/04/2010

We get a LOT of e-mails from our readers, asking whether season sets of Saturday Night Live will continue or not. Fans have been treated to at least one each year, usually available around the holidays, for several years in a row now. All-in-all, five season sets have been released so far.

However, no season set SNL titles have been announced for any time in 2010. So we checked in with Broadway Video (the people behind the show) to ask about this, and they told us that unfortunately, due to the high music costs (and an unwillingness to deliver the season sets without the music segments), they will not be able to continue with any further season set releases. We presume that this is why we're seeing a large number of "best-of' titles released this year instead, including "expanded" versions of old titles, collection packs of the old versions of those titles, plus brand-new releases such as The Best of 09/10 and A Very Gilly Christmas...but no season sets.

We'll add this info about a lack of more SNL season sets to our site's "What's the Hold-up?" FAQ, of course, along with other DVD releases that don't look like they'll be available in the near future. Look for these additions to that document in the next few days. Hopefully things will change down the road for this show (perhaps when the economy picks back up?). If they do, we'll let you know, so stay tuned of course.

I can't say I'm surprised, but thankfully the most important seasons IMO were released (the early ones with Chase, Belushi & Aykroyd). I would have stopped buying them by the time Bill Murray left, but even so, it's a bummer that once again music licensing (not poor sales, mind you) are responsible for a show's DVD demise. Pffft.

"Don't Look Behind You" has nothing to do with the subsequent EQ series. It was only a pilot for a version of EQ that thankfully never came off.

It was based on the Queen novel Cat of Many Tails.

The official release date for the giant Time-Life set of "Six Million Dollar Man" is November 23, but sets are already being shipped now. I've received my notification already.

Word is that at the last minute, legal issues forced the "blooper reel" to be removed from this set so that will not be included.

I don't get what legal issues would stop bloopers since they were able to include a blooper reel on The Incredible Hulk S5.

The only legal issue that I think could relate to clearance is what if someone burst into song at one point?

Awesome! Looking forward to receiving my set sooner than expected.

Yep, seems that's the case.

While it would have been cool to have, honestly, most blooper reels aren't that funny. The Bionic Woman reel on the season 1 set is without a single laugh. I personally won't miss it and am more tha happy with all the content they have included. This is still going to be the set to beat.

Add "The Lieutenant" to the list of titles that Warner will likely roll out next year in the MOD Archive series.

 
 Posted:   Nov 10, 2010 - 5:47 AM   
 By:   Scott M (Oldsmith)   (Member)

They could put all 29 episodes on 4 discs, like their release of Josie and the Pussy Cats in Outer Space, which goes for $30. I'd like to think The Lieutenant would cost about the same.

I posted this on the other thread first, cuz I got my original question answered in the meantime. :-)

The last grail title for me among 60s sitcoms not on DVD is finally coming!

There's been a lot of talk about Warner Archive giving us vintage TV titles on MOD, and the first break in the dam has occurred with the resumption of the long-abandoned "Cheyenne" with S2 V1 to be available from Warner Archive December 7.

At the moment, keep in mind that what they're doing is charging $13 for an individual half hour edited show that is *already* available on the big set they just put out which works out to another rip-off rate on the part of Jeff Sozting.

These butchered 30 minute versions I have seen on the official set and they are not well-done IMO, because it's as if there's a conscious effort to *only* do that much because you'll often see things end in mid-interview or see awkward edits to avoid panning down the couch for a guest who was not "cleared" (or put another way, they were too cheap to try).

Still, I have to grudgingly admit that if some unique individual shows from the pre-73 period came out I'd probably do it, but I still would rather see a restoration of the old policy of just letting the individual get ANY episode *uncut* for $100.
