And elsewhere, a message board is quoting an article that I can't find the original source for, that says "Banacek" has been licensed out by Universal for release by Hart Sharp Video in May. If this report is correct then it would join "McHale's Navy" and "Ironside" as titles Universal has agreed to license out for DVD, and it means that there is renewed hope for unreleased Universal titles in general. The big sticky wicket concerns titles Universal abandoned after just one release and whether those titles would ever come under a licensing agreement (though Universal is showing signs of coming round on a few of them).

At any rate, Universal, which a year ago had my vote for the worst studio handling TV on DVD is now rocketing back up to one of the best based on recent months. Sony is unquestionably the worst now with Fox nipping at its heels in light of their decision to abandon further releases of the Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart Shows.

I remember the show that I used to watch back then (as a teenager). I will not buy it. Period.
Oddly enough, Fox makes two releases of the series: one complete season 1 and two season 1 sets.
That makes no sense!!!
Where is logic in all that?
Are they afraid not to sell their stuff?

Speaking of Universal, I will buy these titles when they will be available in their US editions:
"The Six Million Dollar Man"
"Banacek"
"The Name of the Game"
"It Takes a Thief"
"The Alfred Hitchcock Hour"
"Thriller"

I wish I could, but for now alas the indications seem to be that its true.

This alas is the pitfall of the MTM library being under Fox's control. The only MTM show to have its full run on DVD is "Remington Steele" and its apt to stay that way for a long time as "Hill Street Blues" and "The White Shadow" have also been abandoned for now (and don't expect a Season 2 of "St. Elsewhere" anytime soon).

Excellent piece of news, Eric!
The first season contains scores by Billy Goldenberg and Oliver Nelson if I recall.

The Universal TV-movie I'd most like to see remastered for DVD would be "The Doomsday Flight" (1966). My late 80s TV recording used a real lousy 16mm print.

Hawaii-Five-O is out next week? Saw the ad on the telly this AM.

It's already out. In fact, I'm enjoying it right now! smile The remastering job done on these episodes is fantastic.

You confuse "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (1955-1962) with "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" (1962-1965).

From Digital Bits. Gomer Pyle Season 2, out June 26.

You have to admit, Paramount has been winning the award for best job of TV on DVD this year, with their only blemishes at this point the seeming abandonment of "Taxi" and "Have Gun Will Travel" after three years for both.

THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR had numerous superlative eps, many scored by Bennie Herrmann, like that incredible adaptation of Bradbury's "THE JAR".

Truth to tell, I reread R.B's short story again in the anthology OCTOBER COUNTRY a few years ago, and mirable dictu- the damned TV ep is better. smile

My H5O ordered shipped Tuesday, so I eagerly await this. It will be interesting to compare the eps I taped off the TV and the uncut eps from the DVD set. "No Blue Skies" and "Up Tight" among the many fine season one highlights.

BTW, H5O is currently #23 in DVD sales at Amazon.com...not too shabby for a nearly 40 year-old show!

You will love the set! I picked it up at Best Buy ($24.99 with coupons) and the quality has been the best I've seen for a late 60s show in terms of remastering. I hadn't watched this show in many years, but with memories of muddy, dark 16mm prints on WOR Channel 9, these have been like rediscovering new programs altogether.

Any special featurettes or other extras? I just orered the set this afternoon from DeepDiscount. Great show! I'd love to see a release of POLICE STORY as well.
