TV shows you most want on DVD

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Vlvetmorning98, Jan 14, 2004.

  1. They put out several Dr. Who DVDs every couple months,
    sometimes a set of episodes at a time if they're tied
    together ("The Key To Time" 6 parter) but usually one
    each of a different incarnation of the Dr. Just got
    the newest 4 in just today as a matter of fact.

    They did the entire run. The early 90s reunion movie was also
    released, though from a different label.

    What made the releases confusing is that there was no rational order
    to the releases. In most cases, the four episodes included on a disc
    might have originally aired around the same time, but from disc to
    disc, they jumped all around the place.

    The last two releases were dubbed "The Robert Culp Collection", and
    included episodes that Culp wrote/directed. These had commentaries by
    Culp. None of the other discs had commentaries.

  6. They had a geographical sense to them. I really need tobuy the rest.

    Not so much. Or more precisely, that's due to the clumping of episodes
    that aired close to each other. Most likely due to location shooting,
    the original airings were clumped by geography: a good part of the
    first season, for example, was set in Hong Kong and Japan. You'd also
    find a lot of the Mexico-set episodes together, and so on.

    With the DVDs, you're likely to find four of the Asia-set episodes
    together on a disc, but you won't find all of those discs released
    together.
    Yes, you do.

    This may seem strange but two old British programs from the 1960s

    "A for Andromeda" and "Out of the unknown."

    As these were made in the early 60s I suspect that they were tost out
    by the BBC like most of the other good programs produced around that
    era. Look how long it took them to locate the early Dr Who episodes
    from around the word. The first series of Out of the unknown was
    definitely trashed.

    how about the Dark Shadows mini-series remake with Ben Cross. Seeing as
    how the original has many sets out already in its collection . And all
    *cough* speculation */cough* of the rumored new series on WB.

    I'd like to know if the entire run of Sanford & Son will be released,
    I'd love it if they would include its various spinoffs, i.e. Sanford
    Arms, Grady, Sanford, etc.

  11. Only the last 20 minutes of "A for Andromeda" survives. According to
    the contract with the players "Andromeda" was wiped within a year of
    its broadcast, however the 20 minute fragment turned up in the 1980's
    on 16mm Kine, having been illicitly saved by Fred Hoyle or someone
    close to the production. This is a shame since this was probably one
    of the most poignant and lovely Science Fiction programs the BBC ever
    produced. And this was Julie Christie's first film work. I remember
    watching the series in 1961 absolutely enthralled. The 1962 sequel
    "The Andromeda Breakthrough" with Susan Hampshire (Nine lives of
    Thomasina) exists in its entirety on 35mm Kinescope, however there are
    no plans to release it on home video. The reason that Julie Christie
    didn't do the sequel is that the BBC was too stingy to pay Julie a
    retainer during the "A for Andromeda" shooting. I think this was only
    between some 200 to 600 Pounds!

    I think "Out of the Unknown" partly exists, I haven't researched it.

  12. So would I. I would love to see Beavis & butt-head on DVD in season
    format w/ uncut episodes & music videos.

    Well, I would really love to see the old cartoons of Filmation come to
    DVD in season format.

    "Commentary" is used here in a loose sense. Each of the two Robert
    Culp Collection discs had a 30-40 minute audio reminiscence by Culp.
    You could run each of these together with any of the episodes on the
    respective disc, or just turn off the TV screen and listen, since
    neither track related to a specific episode (nor does either last the
    length of an episode). Not that these tracks aren't well worth a
    listen, but they're not commentary tracks in the sense to which DVD
    fans are accustomed.
