Modern Family season 9.
One of the last Fox shows to not go MOD. Better enjoy it while I can.
Scorpion season 4
Pre-ordered two from Amazon:
Doctor Who: Peter Davison Complete First Season (Bluray)
The High Chaparral - Season 2
Now that the second go of that 1967-71 NBC Western (1968-69) is due for Dec. 11, what do you think might be the timeframe for the third one (1969-70)?
Maybe April ???
Just ordered Network's The Professionals Mark III Blu-Ray set from Amazon UK...$17 inclusive of overseas shipping. Not a bad deal, and cheaper than from Network's own site, especially on the shipping. With this set, I now own the complete series, all 57 episodes, beautifully-remastered, with nice extras, including very extensive booklets by Andrew Pixley (we're talking probably 500 pages or more, taking all 4 booklets together.)
500 pages worth of booklets?! Wow-- that's a treasure trove of information right there, not to mention, very good reading!
Actually, 500 pages is probably too small a number to be accurate. The booklet in the Mark IV Blu-Ray set alone is 240 pages! A treasure trove is right - almost too much information.
Andrew Pixley is well-known in the U.K. for his exhaustively-researched "Viewing Notes," as he rather humbly titles them. Network's recently sold out The Goodies Complete BBC Collection special edition came with two booklets by him, totaling 850 pages. He's also done lengthy booklets on The Prisoner, Public Eye, Callan, The Sweeney, Ace of Wands and scads of other series.)
Downton Abbey, all 6 seasons in Blu
I picked up the 5 season pack when that was out, and S6 in a single set.
Just be aware, these are the official UK cuts, not the alternate PBS edits. So if something's missing or added, that's the reason.
I wish I knew all the differences.
Me as well!
Also Agent Carter, Season 1.
My understanding is the episodes were restructured to allow for the 90 minute length PBS wanted and nothing was cut. However, with a 4 episode S1 on PBS that comes out to 6 hour length episodes. In the UK it was 7 hour length episodes for S1. So it appears that something had to be cut for the US versions unless those PBS episodes run a bit long. PBS caught some flak for the editing and addition of a pre-show section explaining certain British customs for Americans.
I've only ever seen the UK versions as that's what Amazon has for streaming and where I first watched the series. I purchased the "UK" version BR set long before I knew there might be a difference but don't really care as they have the original pacing and structure.
I haven't bought a tv show dvd/blu-ray set in a while except for Gunsmoke. Nothing's getting released that interests me. However, I just got Buck Rogers on blu since I haven't seen it since I was a kid. I figured I might as well get it since it will never make it back to tv. Then a week after a get it I see that MeTV is starting to show it. Figures. Anyway, I've seen the first couple of discs and sadly this does not hold up well for me. I love the space ships but production values are pretty bad. The costumes are laughable.
Yeah, I felt the same way after seeing the costumes. Wish I hadn't seen them again. Would have liked to remember Buck Rogers (and even the original Battlestar Galactica, for that matter) the way I did when I was a nine-year-old kid. Everything about space looked cool to me back then. My how times have changed.
