  1. Kaye Ballard has passed away

    Little Lucie was a no show? Hmmmmm
  2. LOVE that episode! Penelope Poopendorf!
  3. Lucy Sightings!

    Oh good. There's a few more.
  4. Better than you've ever (or ever will) see them
  5. Ah it's beautiful. Kudos to whomever the talented artiste (most likely ) was.
  6. Yes! Can we credit/identify the wundaful artist or source? (Lucy looks a little Garlandish if you look at it quickly, no?)
  7. Lucy Sightings!

    Bet you saw a few while you were here in LA doing Drew Carey!
  8. Lucy Sightings!

  9. Thanks for this. Ah yes Mr.Mankiewicz, one of several who tried to "replace" "Siskel & Ebert". I certainly liked him a lot more than that other lump of mud (his name escapes me at the moment) who took Siskel's place, for years. I'm a Karger fan too for reasons more than just his ...reporting.
  10. All Star Party for Lucille Ball

    This would sure be a fun watch again after so many years! Lucy must have been really sauced that night! I vividly remember her mistakenly greeting Warwick as "Diane"! Come to think of it, why werent' the junior Arnazes at mama's head table? Didn't think much of it at the time but it's a head scratcher after reading this.
  11. Great to hear she went over so well. I get kinda "tingly" hearing any postitive feedback like this about her, especially when it's related to something pre ILL that some still have no idea about or exposure to. Yeah!
  12. I don't get TCM,is Mueller the "new" Robert Osborne on the netlet?
  13. Whatever Happened to Bobby Jellison?

    Oh wow sounds amazing but first I've ever heard of it! Would surely have gone if I'd known. Wonder if a recording (audio or video) exists of it? Guess it means some research in order!! Thanks Brian!
  14. For whatever reason, Mill Creek bought/acquired Sony's previous catalog, which is why you see so many re-releases of previously released sets, both single season ("Bewitched", "Partridge Family" etc.) and "complete series boxes" (again, "Bewitched," "Partridge", as well as your referenced "Mad About You", "Party of Five", etc.); however the newer, cheaper MC versions invariably utilize "cheaper"(looking) bare bones packaging and utilize fewer discs as they cram more episodes per than Sony originally did. What little I know & understand about the tech downside of this, to be honest I've never done an "A/B" comparison but the gist as I understand it is that putting more episodes per disc means the video information is more compressed which results in lesser picture quality. Makes sense to me. Given that I'm a "collector" and would eventually likely bought both versions anyway (at least those titles that were duped, not all were), I'm still glad and prefer to watch the original, less eps on a disc releases put out by Sony (where it applies, by title). CBS Paramount however at least in the case of those titles with which I'm familiar, seems to have simply taken the same discs per season from their single season sets and collected them in new (albeit rather simple) packaging, as witnessed in the complete series box sets of "I Love Lucy/TLBDAS", "THe Lucy Show", "Medium" and from 20th Century Fox, "Reba" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". Thus, I would stick with the original studios' version of releases (instead of Mills Creek), single-season or complete series box, whenever possible. But then I'm a geek what do I know?
