But the early 70s are always a lot of fun, pop culturewise, and a lot more interesting than the Disco-soaked latter half of the decade.



"Agreed, Mr. Wordsworth!"
Actually when the ABC Movies of the Week ended in 1975 that was the end of good television dramas. The same year Oliver Nelson and Bernard Herrmann died too.
Past that date, I refuse to buy any television shows. Period!
1975 is the tail of the comet.

According to this review, the second season of The Odd Couple isn't changed musically, but I'm still waiting for more reviews.

My understanding is the only music change has to do with background music in the flashback episode where Felix meets and proposes to Gloria. Apparently the original background music was the song "Just One More Chance" (Referencing a S1 episode that called it their song) but that's been replaced.

More important music matters though, opera star Richard Fredericks rendition of "If Ever I Would Leave You" in the "Rigoletto" episode for instance, are left thankfully unchanged and intact.

All this, whilst we, in the land of it's creation, the U.S.A. sit back and await a domestic release of THE INVADERS.

It IS to vomit....

I am pleasantly surprised to see that "Project UFO", the last TV series created by Jack Webb, might be coming to DVD soon. The show ran in two half seasons on NBC in 1978-79, and was actually fairly good its first season, as it dramatized cases from the Air Force Project Blue Book files on UFO sightings. Unfortunately, when it came back for its second season, the show had lost its lead, William Jordan (the result of a dispute with Webb) ditched its fine S1 Nelson Riddle theme music for an inferior disco one, and brought on as the new lead Ed Winter, who was so entrenched in the public mind as Colonel Flagg from MASH, that it was impossible to take him seriously as a strait-laced Air Force officer.

I have a set of episodes from reruns in Australia, as I don't think the show has ever been repeated on US cable over the years, but it will be nice to see an official release, though it's still frustrating that the two greatest achievements of Jack Webb, TV wise, "Dragnet" and "Adam-12" remain stuck in the limbo of "one and done."

Season 4 of "Emergency" is announced for January 29. Seasons 2 of "Dragnet" and "Adam-12" alas, we remain no closer too.

I'll admit to being just the right age when "Tales of the Gold Monkey" aired, so I'm a little excited at any kind of news regarding that show:

To me the blurb I can't figure out is why in the world is Sony, who ranks as the KING of one and done titles and who have let shows like "Barney Miller" rot in one and done isolation for years now, even so much as *considering* "Salvage One" a series I don't think anyone really remember? Does Sony really think more people want "Salvage One" than Season 2 of "Barney Miller" or S1 of "Donna Reed", "Dennis The Menace" or the rest of "Naked City" that they didn't license out to Image????

Let's hope they will not screw BANACEK's season 2.
I sent an e-mail to that company complaining about the poor quality of season 1.
I hope they will learn their lesson.
This company works against BANACEK by doing a sloppy job.

Well if by "poor quality" you mean the evidence of syndicated prints, that's something Hart Sharp can't help alas. When Universal licenses a title out, they just give the company the last set of prints they put together, even if they're a decade old and the company putting out the DVDs doesn't have *any* chance to go back to the original source elemetns unless they pay an exorbitant sum to Universal they're not about to do.

At LAST! FOUR YEARS since it's first season was released on DVD, Sony is finally getting off their rear ends and appears ready to release Season 2 of "Barney Miller", one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, on DVD!

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Barney-Miller-Season-2/8335

If "Barney Miller" can finally be rescued from one-and-done oblivion after this long, then let's hope that offers a hopeful harbinger for some other titles languishing at one-and-done status at Sony.

Newhart, Season 1 scheduled for release, late February.

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Newhart-Season-1/8403

This news doesn't excite me for a couple reasons. First off, Fox is doing this while the last two seasons of the original Bob Newhart Show (which is superior) remain unreleased. And second, this is Fox, which of late has become the most notorious of studios for abandoning shows in mid-run, and I honestly can't imagine them staying with this show, since sales of S1 I suspect won't be particularly strong. S1 is not "classic Newhart" as it was shot on videotape, Julia Duffy would not appear as a regular until S2 (her character is introduced as a one-shot in S1), and Larry, Darryl, Darryl not until S2 either. Most casual fans of the show I suspect will avoid buying it, and Fox will then have another abandoned title they can cheerfully disregard as they've done with so much else.

Bottom line, if you love "Newhart" you better tell a lot of your friends to buy S1 or else!

I spoke prematurely on this, and for the reason that should have made me suspect the rumor was bogus. "Project UFO" is the only Jack Webb series not produced at Universal, and as such the story's claim of it being licensed from Universal couldn't have been accurate. Evidently the source for this story was confusing Project UFO with some other title.

It's too bad, because the first season of "Project UFO" was very good.

A couple years ago, Rhino released the first two seasons of "My Favorite Martian" (which for me is the funniest of the "gimmick" sitcoms of the 60s, better than "Bewitched" and even "I Dream Of Jeannie") on DVD and was supposed to release the third and final season (and only one in color) when at the last minute the release date was cancelled and nothing's been heard on that front since.

However, those who want to complete their collection have been offered an alternative as the complete third season has been released in Australia, but in Region free format so that means it will play fine in your regular DVD player. *And* it's loaded with a lot of extras and bonus features as well.
