Andy Griffith Show - Season 1
AT LAST - (the release date was pushed back to November 16th) - the
long-awaited full season treatment of this classic show, as opposed to
the shoddy previous releases. No one has sent me a copy of this new DVD
set, so your guess is as good as mine as to the quality...
Looney Tunes Golden Collection - Volume 2
The best of the best cartoons ever made - the ones you
grew up watching on Saturday mornings. Entertainment that really is for
the whole family. You could knock off so many people on your gift list
just by getting a few of these!
Hope - The Vietnam Years
Wander back in time - starting with the 1964 Hope Christmas
special and every year through 1972 is included on this set. It's all
here - the monologues (with
jokes with Alpo, Liberace and Don Rickles in the punchline),
the guest stars (that include Jerry Cologna, Phyllis Diller, Anita Bryant,
Joey Heatherton, Jill St. John, Redd Foxx and Lola Falana) and an endless
parade of prick teasing sex symbols like The Golddiggers, Miss World and
all of the other beauty queens.
you're a fan of Hope and his specials, then you'll want to own this reasonably
priced collection - a time capsule from the last time the USA was engaged
in a war with no (seeming) end.

in Space - Season 2, vol. 2
Not the best episodes. Get the first two sets, skip this
one unless you're a completist. A promised extra - rare 1966 interviews
with original cast members June Lockhart, Guy Williams, and Jonathan Harris
- may make it worth purchasing but I haven't seen it.
Bishop Show - Season 2
FROM THE PUBLISHER: The comic genius behind the
legendary Rat Pack, and co-star of the original "Ocean's Eleven,"
stars in this sparkling sitcom available for the first time on DVD in
this exclusive collection authorized by Bishop. The Joey Bishop Show
ran from 1961-65. The second season marked a new beginning for the series,
with new cast members, new characters, and a new premise. Contains 34
complete episodes, each in "living color," along with vintage archival
extras, including the series pilot. Recommended by TVparty!
Room For Daddy - Season 5
Contains the pilot episode for The Andy Griffith
Show! Over 13 hours on 6 discs that take you back to a
simpler time. This season starts with Danny's move to CBS and courting
a new wife - and features the marvelous Amanda
Randolph (Sapphire's Mama on Amos 'n Andy).
Extras include a rare performance from the Jerry Lewis / Dean Martin telethon.
Along with the Bishop Show DVD set, Questar is becoming the company
to watch for tremendous DVD releases. I like the way they present these
classic sitcoms in affordable, sensible collections. Add this to your
Amos 'n' Andy Show Box Set
Almost all the episodes in the series in one package -
one of the funniest comedies of all time! (Get it while you can, I suspect
it will be withdrawn from the market before long.) Not restored.
Looking for the perfect gift for a family
with young kids? This is it! It's the show you grew up with - Henrietta
Hippo, Charley Owl, Freddie the Frog teaching kids core values in a most
fun way. This 6 DVD set contains 59 episodes - a great value and a fine
looking package for a seminal children's series. If you've never seen
the show (which began airing in 1971) take my word for it, this is a terrific
set for young and old alike - a rare high-quality program that entertains
Munsters - Season 1
- all 38 episodes from the '64-65 season plus the unseen pilot! This is
a collection you'll want to keep - truly classic television. I thoroughly
enjoyed watching all of these hilarious episodes again - and to see them
with such clarity is a revelation. The color pilot is a real hoot with
a re-cast Eddie and Lily Munster! Give this one as a gift if you want
to impress someone this holiday season.
Gallery - Complete 1st Season
is a fantastic collection of suspense stories, the first season was the
best for Night Gallery. This represents some of Rod Serling's best
but least-seen work - don't miss Joan Crawford in one of Steven Spielberg's
first efforts. All shot in that glorious, 1970's Universal Television
style, with the biggest dramatic TV stars of the era. Very entertaining!
I kinda liked this show. 22 episodes on three discs.
Less than ten dollars if you order here!
Fabulous packaging - a long awaited release with more volumes on the way.

quirky CBS dramedy from the nineties has a lot of fans and no wonder -
it was one of the best written and performed programs of the decade. It
was also the rare series that was filmed on location somewhere other than
LA, NYC or Canada. Season two (the first season was a short summer run)
has been released in time for the holidays, so if you have a Northern
Exposure fan in the family, here you go. Episodes are uncut, digitally
remastered with unexposed footage outtakes. I missed out on seeing Northern
Exposure when it originally aired, watching it for the first time
this year was a real treat. Nice!
Science Theater 3000 (Volume 6)
and their robot friends make snarky comments while watching the worst
films of all time in this long running series that enthralled kids and
teens in the eighties and nineties. This 6th edition features Attack
of the Giant Leeches, Gunslinger, Teenagers From Outer Space and a
bunch of hilarious training films from the fifties and sixties. This is
the stuff you put on late at night for friends; Teenagers From Outer
Space is especially funny - even without the commentary.
Hope Show - Hope For The Holidays
The best of the Bob Hope Christmas Specials; actually an NBC special
from the nineties - with outtakes and full versions of the classic holiday
songs. Guests include John Wayne, Redd Foxx, Jack Benny and dozens of
others. Share this with the whole family over the holidays. Hope for
the Holidays is a pleasant reminder of those great Hope specials we
all grew up on - and sorely miss. This is a slick and impressive package,
a high quality production that you'll enjoy year after year.

You Being Served: Complete Collection
entire 10 year run on 14 discs. All of those episodes might be overkill,
but this was a very funny series and worth having to enjoy when you want
over the years.
You Being Served Again: Complete Series
Did you know there was a revival series? I haven't seen
it, but it sounds interesting. Might be worth $30.00.
- The Complete First Season
Also included are two original Columbo movies 'Prescription: Murder' (1968)
and 'Ransom for a Dead Man' (1971) that preceded the series. One of those
great Universal series from the seventies, the first episode was directed
by a then unknown Steven Spielberg.
