If only Universal could release "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" before the end of "Alfred hitchcock Presents", meaning before 2011.

There are signs that *three years* after Season 1 of "Night Gallery" was released, Universal is FINALLY going to release Season 2 sometime this Fall.

I'd be interested in this, though my memories of the show are so dim I can't recall if the subsequent seasons were any good. I got season one and didn't recall ANY of the eps!

Season 2 is considered as the best season of all: best stories, best film-making, best music scores.

maybe Stefan can fill us in on any subtle changes in THE FUGITIVE DVD set when he sees it...there's supposed to be some "music and editorial alterations" from original episodes.I don't recall the details of year one enough to think I would notice any changes.

To tell you the truth, I will wait for the complete season 1 on DVD that will be released with the season 1-volume two set.
Besides, where have you read that info?

More news concerning "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.":
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=7790

We've received another email from "NS," and this one is packed with more information on the upcoming Time Life releases.

Time Life has two configurations planned - season 1, and the complete series. Season 1 includes all 29 on 11 single-sided discs, plus nearly 2 hours of bonus material including the rare, original pilot episode, "Solo," which has never aired on network television.

The complete series will contain all 105 episodes on 39 DVDs. There's over 8 hours of bonus material including an interview with Robert Vaughn (Napoleon Solo) and David McCallum (their first interview together in over 20 years; original blueprints of UNCLE headquarters, Del Floria's Tailor Shop and the THRUSH mobile headquarters; Emmy Awards Show and Golden Globe Show appearances by Vaughn and McCallum; four 30-minute featurettes; promos and trailers, and much, much more.

So does this mean that the complete series has different extras than the seperate series sets?
In other words: in order to have all the extras, do we need to buy both the "all at once box" and "series X to X+Y"?

Kind regards.

Sometimes, I take a look at Andy's reviews.
This statement ("music and editorial alterations") is rather confused. DVD Talk hasn't reviewed the series yet.

http://tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=7919

A comedic anthology show that aired from 1969-74. It's about as representative of the early 1970s as you can find. Think yellow, brown, and orange and that'll give you the idea!wink I've also never seen a show with as many references to the decade in which the show was made: "C'mon Roger, lighten up, it's the Seventies!"

http://www.tv.com/love-american-style/show/105/summary.html

ABC at Friday 10:00 PM (60 min.)
Status: Ended Premiered: September 29, 1969 Last Aired: January 11, 1974
Show Category: Comedy
Love, American Style entertained viewers with stories about common people finding love in all walks of life. In this anthology series, each hour-long broadcast consisted of a group of vignettes, aired sequentially and separately and each with an introductory title card. Normally there were three or four vignettes to a show, although occasionally there were as few as one or as many as five.



Short blackout skits would be shown in between segments whenever time allowed. The skits featured a recurring cast of players which included James Hampton, best known as Hannibal Dobbs from F Troop, and veteran character actor Stuart Margolin, brother of executive producer Arnold Margolin. The syndication rerun package consisted of 30-minute broadcasts that were edited from the original hour-long broadcasts, except for those which aired in the first half of season 2, which ran in a 30-minute time slot.



The show never ranked above #25 in the Nielsen Ratings.



Time slots that Love, American Style originally aired in:

September 29, 1969 to January 12, 1970: Mondays, 10:00 to 11:00.

January 23, 1970 to September 18, 1970: Fridays, 10:00 to 11:00.

September 25, 1970 to January 15, 1971: Fridays, 9:30 to 10:00.

January 22, 1971 to January 11, 1974: Fridays 10:00 to 11:00.



In 1970, the show received a Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Show in a Musical or Comedy. It also won two Emmys for Charles Fox's musical compositions and was nominated for two more. The theme song was originally sung by the pop group, the Cowsills, but later replaced by an uptempo version, credited to the "Love American Style Singers."



There was a short-lived revival in 1986 called The New Love, American Style, which aired on ABC's daytime schedule.



One of the segments, "Love and the Happy Days," spawned a successful spin-off series, Happy Days.

I remember LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE well, I recall watching the premiere ep back in 1969, just a few months shy of my 13th birthday. I wonder just how dated it will appear now? I mean, the clothes, the manners and mores.

Man, you know you ain't a kid anymore when you remember watching the premier episodes of this, THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, ALL IN THE FAMILY...

Hey, at least you don't have any Dumont Network memories!!!wink

Even as a kid in the early 80s, I remember thinking "how 70s" the show was! 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.
