    EricJ: Y’know……That’s not a bad idea, that that.
    For those of us who had to (ahemcough) “replace” the Megalon disk in our Vol. 10.0 set, the discarded extra disk might be lying around in blank DVD cases (not saying it would, of course), and Toho wouldn’t have any objection to just a jacket of what would essentially be fan art?
    Or would that just send out the terrible image that some irresponsible fans might not have thrown out their disks as instructed?

    I was hoping they might do that for some of the Shout Select re-releases, especially “The Atomic Brain.” It pissed me off about the missing stinger on the Rhino version. If Shout had included Lobby Posters from Steve, then I would have been forced to buy all of the re-releases for completist collectors sake. But apparently it wasn’t worth the cost for them. Perhaps they should mount a kickstarter campaign for making posters for the remaining episodes….for posterity if nothing else.

    Bring ’em along and work on them during the trip.

    I’m excited about this. City Limits, Riding With Death, and Incredible Melting Man are great episodes. Really bad movies, but the kind that provide plenty of fodder for high grade riffs. Stranded In Space, not so much. It’s mostly just boring and the riffs are ok but generally it’s a pretty forgettable episode. Still, it’s not as bad as Castle of Fu Manchu.

    Brandon Pierce:
    I don’t remember 305- Stranded in Space….. is this a lost episode?

    Not so much lost as just not broadcast or talked about as much as others. It’s both an OK TV-movie and an OK ep. Frank wrote a pretty funny piece about it in the ACEG.

    For “Stranded in Space,” I really hope that Shout Factory is able to get an interview with Gerald Sanford, the writer/creator of “The Stranger” (the unsold TV pilot which was edited into “Stranded in Space”). He still answers questions about it on IMDb, along with his other writing (for CHiPs, Night Gallery, etc.), and he sounds like a man with some interesting stories to tell.

    For “Riding With Death,” I hope they can get Jim Stafford for an interview. I know that Ben Murphy is still around, but from the few interviews he’s given, he doesn’t sound like the nostalgic type.

    … not that I’d be unsatisfied with a “bare-bones” release, of course! I’ve wanted “Riding With Death” for so long that I’d be happy with a DVD-R in a brown paper envelope!

    This is honestly the best set in years.

    Looks like they finally nailed down who City Limits belongs to.

    Have never thought of these films together, but yes it is perfect. Like a good fireworks show, reading each title make me light up.

    Stranded in Space starring Zefram Cochrane and a whole bunch of big 1970s sedans! :)

    Awesome idea – “Kim Cattrall: In Conversation” Betcha Mr. Trace Beaulieu would be into it – voicing Crow T. one more time for an on-camera interview where Crow interviews Ms. Cattrall. Crow could dress as James Lipton, and ask her what her favorite swear word is. Shout – you could totally claim it was your idea, and I wouldn’t say a thing! I’d just wink and give you a knowing nod when we see each other on the subway…

    Nice to see TIMM finally get a release, which means S7 is almost fully completed. I wonder how gross Steve Vance will make his artwork involving Crow and Servo with this one! All in all a decent set.

    I’d love to see an interview with Ben Murphy.He has aged VERY well, and shows that you don’t have to go the plastic surgery route.

    As to why I like Riding with Death so much, I think it’s because it’s a perfect microcosm of the mid 1970s — the blandness, the attempted coolness, the clothes, the hair, that *#$@&* CB radio fad.

    CB radio was basically the forerunner of social media. ;)
    The fad part aside, they never really went away. If I was traveling cross country, especially in areas that are still black holes for cell phones, I’d want one in my car. My dad had one well before the fad started, and this was back when the FCC mandated you had to have an operator’s license.

    This is a prime opportunity to interview Beez about where the heck they got the Ben Murphy standee they used in Squirm. Did they make it themselves, or did it come from somewhere?

    Bone Ranger: I’m gonna need some Steve Vance poster art for Megalon, though.

    You know, Steve Vance poster art for all of the titles Shout! Factory can’t get the rights to would make a wonderful bonus on the final set. Those of you with unofficial copies could then make your DVD cases fit in with the rest of the series. It would also make up for what may turn out to be a set of < 4 DVDs.

    EricJ: I think I can understand why everyone else on the board seems to rail at me for hearing the exact same things over and over and over and over, as if the teller thought they were funny the first time.

    Well at least you’re self-aware. And knowing is half the battle!

    Man. What a terrible set. It’s like Shout is not even trying!

    I would rather watch scratchy episodes of The Waltons on VHS!

    I want Shout to re-release the episode where the old man walks around the bush and turns into a monster, and the kids pretend to shoot him, and the old man comes back around and says “I think you got him!”

    Yeah. And more Serling anecdotes!

    I feel dizzy.

    Mommie?

    You’d rather they RE-release an episode than release four previously unreleased episodes that, based on the comments, many people are clamoring for. You make me want to clean my filthy glasses.

    They need to interview Mickey Lolich for The Incredible Melting Man. Lolich, former Detroit Tiger pitcher, still holds the record for the most strikeouts by a left handed pitcher in the American League, and, was the MVP of the 1968 World Series. That said, the story goes Mickey’s agent got him a bit part of a Security Guard in the film (he was not the one who shot our cracker loving hero). It would be good to have a strikeout king in baseball talk about a strikeout of a movie.

    I was kidding, Dr. Monkey. I was pretending a drunken and confused rant describing a Twilight Zone episode instead of anything MST3K. 8-)

    Volume 36 is, of course, a good set, and one step ever closer to what forum poster “Bones” calls the Susan Hart Barrier.

    I regret any confusion my humor birthed.

    Interviews with either Kim Catrall or James Earl Jones (or better yet, both if it’s possible) would be amazing BUT…..since City Limits is a FVI flick and we’re running out of those (any FVI eps that Shout hasn’t gotten to yet?), as I have begged and implored in recent months, if anybody from Shout is reading this PLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAASE try to include a mini documentary covering the history (dare I also say, the histrionics?), the hows, whys and the who’s of Film Venture International! The shoddy and opportunistic film appropriation! The chopping up of TV pilots! The weird, eery unrelated openings with their oddly ambient music! The guy who owned FVI who looted the company and fled to another country never to be heard form again! Come on, pleeeeeeease have Ballyhoo or someone make a documentary about this insanely weird little company!!! :-D
