  1. Great video, I could watch it over and over!
  2. Hey, since you gave it to me for my b-day tvfan, might as well put it up. The nice thing is, the episodes have been beautifully restored, and CBS/Paramount didn't screw with the music, like they did with The Fugitive season 2 set. I didn't think they would, since all music was original by Dominic Frontiere, whereas The Fugitive used clips of various scores from a stock library. Anyway, put it up, will ya? Can you do that?
  3. Hey, if any of you get a chance, be sure to check out the viewer mail on rtnville.com, the Retro TV Network's website. Thankfully many viewers seem to share the feelings my wife and I have for TVLand. Now, if they would only show The Fugitive again, or add The Outer Limits to their lineup, all would be right in the world.
  4. I just saw this the other day, and overall I love the comments by Mike and the bots. Everyone in this movie is so completely inept if they can't even get away from a carpet monster that moves at about half a mile an hour. Unfortunately though this movie seems to take a dim view on women. At every attack, a woman is almost always the victim, and she is usually helped along to her doom by her "significant other" male friend. The first victim, a bikini clad babe making out with her boyfriend, is noteworthy simply because the director seemed to want to get his jollies by filming a barely covered w
  5. Has anyone seen the new episodes "Stolen Earth" and "Journeys End"? Davros is back! And the Daleks are awesome, as always, especially the Supreme Dalek. I saw the complete episodes on youtube, without commercials (thank you youtube). I love the Earth invasion scenes, especially the massive Dalek saucers. *SPOILER ALERT* It's a shame though that the Daleks never seem to emerge victorious. It would have been truly awe-inspiring to have seen "The destruction of reality itself!" as Davros put it.
  6. No, they probably will. Their cheapness knows no bounds. TV series like The Wonder Years with all of its songs have virtually no chance of being released, or if they are they'll be butchered. What is the matter with these people...I'd be more than willing to pay a little more for a complete set of a series.
  7. Although I've only seen select episodes from various seasons, I must say that the episodes currently being shown on the local RTN network are among the most reflective and introspective episodes of the Magnum, P.I. series I've seen. Right now the show is in the seventh season cycle, which is among many fans, arguably the best season of the series. This is not surprising, given that the producers assumed the seventh season was to be the last, and wanted to go out with a bang. It is difficult to overstate the writers brilliance in this season, exemplified by episodes such as "Solo Flight", "Fort
  8. I used to love it, until they stopped showing The Fugitive. Now they've put Emergency! on in its place, which can't hold a candle to The Fugitive. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate that they show uncut versions of old shows, and I still watch many other shows they air, but I'm very miffed that they cut off The Fugitive, especially since they were showing fourth season episodes close to the climactic series finale. :mad:
  9. Welcome Georgshadow to our modest, yet ever expanding forum. I'd say more, but I'm on a hot lead on the whereabouts of one Dr. Richard Kimble.
  10. Schultz was probably the fattest sergeant in the German military. Of course, he was loveable though, and it helped that he seemed to grudgingly accept Hogan and co.'s actions, unlike Klink who was more of a stickler. Fortunately Klink was in the dark most of the time. What I find most endearing about Schultz is his complete cowardice, even throwing away his gun when Klink's office was under siege ("Herr Kommandant, I lost my rifle!" LOL).
  11. Both Johns had numerous guest roles as German personnel, but did you know they were also accomplished character actors? John Hoyt appeared extensively in television and film, most notably The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, Star Trek (as the ship's surgeon in "The Cage"; one wonders what it would've been like if he had the role of McCoy instead of Kelly!), Battlestar Galactica, Perry Mason, When Worlds Collide, etc. Unfortunately Hoyt died of lung cancer--he contracted it when working on the film The Conqueror starring John Wayne (the filming location was close to a nuclear testing grounds).
  12. Although he's not a regular, I always enjoyed seeing Howard Caine as Major Hochstetter. Leon Askin as General Burkhalter is great too. Both actors were in episodes of The Outer Limits (Caine was in "The Chameleon" and Askin was in "The Inheritors" Part 1), and Caine has been in guest roles in other well known shows such as Get Smart, The Twilight Zone, Gunsmoke, The Untouchables and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Caine was born in Nashville, and learned not only to erase his accent but also learned 32 different world and American dialects. Upon seeing Hogan's Heroes for the first time I honestly t
  13. I've been noticing a disturbing trend among studios that release DVD sets of classic tv shows. One of the most audacious examples I've seen is CBS/Paramount's release of The Fugitive, Season 2 Volume 1. Now, as many fans of classic tv know, the musical score of The Fugitive borrowed heavily from stock libraries and other tv shows such as The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. Unfortunately the studio execs have, in their infinite wisdom, decided to mutilate season 2 of The Fugitive by either cutting out incidental music altogether, or replacing it with some synthesizer garbage done in someone
  14. The Outer Limits take on cloak and dagger, this episode exemplifies the need people feel to be a part of something greater than themselves, whether such "somethings" are noble or not. Groups such as the Invisibles, (as well as secretive paramilitary groups such as neo Nazis in this day and age), which require unswerving loyalty and even fervent religiosity, tend to attract the losers and dregs of society, and this is exactly the point the Control Voice makes at the beginning of the episode. Unfortunately Luis Spain, an undercover GIA agent, is not that far up the social totem pole from the los
  15. The unrelenting strangeness of the alien environment in this episode earns it a high place in my pantheon of favorites. The "fallout" effects (as Mrs. Cashman calls them) combined with the out-of-place rhythyms and musical notes, as well as the unnerving high-pitched noises heard on the telephone lines, all help establish a completely alien environment. The familiar landmarks of houses and cars, as well as an ornate church, do little to help the viewer hold onto any semblance of normality. As the story progresses, and we actually see Luminos and the Luminoids themselves, Haskin and Stefano fur
