Cheap NOEXP!! COLUMBO 4.X!! Herc's SuperExciting Season-Box DVD Vault!!
Five reasons to buy this box:
1. Lt. Columbo is one of the greatest television characters ever concocted, right up there with Mr. Spock, Kwai-Chang Caine, Barney Fife, Basil Fawlty, David Addison, Ed Grimly, Dale Cooper, Bart Simpson and Eric Cartman.
2. Every episode is glorious class warfare. Some rich bastard will engineer an elaborate and ingenious murder. Swarthy little working-class Columbo – driving his beat-to-shit foreign convertible and pulling down an LAPD salary of $11,000 a year – will then wander onto the scene and proceed to slowly and methodically destroy some amoral, snobby, arrogant, self-serving, stick-up-the-ass scumwad’s life.
3. You’ll never have any difficulty guessing who did it. Columbo typically doesn’t saunter into an episode until it’s already about a quarter over. The first 25 minutes or so star the guest-villain as he or she dispatches a fellow human being for selfish gain. We see everything. So the fun is not figuring out the culprit, but watching Columbo figure it out. He’s such an incredible student of human nature, he’s always got half the thing figured out within five minutes of appearing on screen.
4. Look at the guest stars! Season four includes Patrick McGoohan (who won a Emmy for his performance, Robert Conrad, Dick Van Dyke, Dean Stockwell, Patrick Macnee, Bernard Fox, Gena Rowlands, a twentysomething Leslie Ann Warren, Bruce Kirby and Bruce Kirby Jr. (both Kirbys in the same episode!) and a pre-“Rockford Files” Gretchen Corbett, who cavorts in a bikini.
5. Columbo is funnier than Sherlock Holmes, Nick & Nora Charles and Charlie Chan combined.
Herc’s Popular Pricing Pantry
The best pricing news of the week has to be Universal's announcement of Northern Exposure: The Complete First and Second Seasons, which is available for pre-order at $41.99. The two seasons have long been available separately, and if you buy both of those sets separately it will set you back a total of $86.98.
So the new deal gives you all the early Fleishman-O'Connell action at less than half the price!

Start dropping the prices on the rest of the Next Gen sets so I can score all my favorite seasons (3, 4 & 5)! Anyone know if this is in the works?
March 14, 2006, 8:44 a.m. CST
But man, I loved me some Stacy Haiduk! ........................ I also have to admit, that on the Saturday nights I found myself home, (and thus no prospect of potential temporary companionship) after SNL I'd spend an hour with the girls of She Spies.
March 14, 2006, 9:09 a.m. CST
since the first season, which was selling for around $40, contains only 6 or 8 episodes. However, I think I might wait for the (possible) full-series set.
March 14, 2006, 9:13 a.m. CST
Last week was all about how it was not available but I bought one and there were several in the store. I'm also able to find it online. Was it recalled like First Contact? Is there another version to be released later?

Fuck any other small screen version of Supes, *this* is the real deal (and Dana Delaney's Lois Lane is five times sexier than Teri Hatcher).

His website has posted: "After a long illness, Andreas Katsulas died on Monday, February 13th, 2006." Was this on Ain't It Cool? How did I miss it? I just found out through an AFTRA email and I couldn't believe it. I have watched him for so many years on so many shows. It is so sad. It seems like we keep losing so many great people lately.
March 14, 2006, 3:36 p.m. CST
Does anyone know if there are plans to bring that series to dvd? In season set format. I loved that show.
March 14, 2006, 3:40 p.m. CST
So when can we count on Herc to post another SWEET pic of Mary herself ?

Just saying, I want to see if it was as bad as I remember, with Adam West and Burt Ward doing the voiceovers. Campy like the live-action Batman tv show, but I'm sure it sorta sucked, and had that rotten Bat-Mite. Same rotoscoped guy doing the flip in the air that they used in Tarzan (go Nikima!) and Flash Gordon. Sort of sad, but I'll stick to my old 1970s Saturday morning line up -- advertised in comic books and premiered with a Friday night party each new season -- and unedited Johnny Quest. Am I old? You bet, but at least I grew up before your faggy He Man and gay-ass Transformer era.
March 14, 2006, 5:15 p.m. CST
get yr sh!t together SciFi!!!!
March 14, 2006, 5:26 p.m. CST
But so am I. I think the animated Batman version you're talking about was early 80's. I remember because I watched it too, even though I thought I was too old for Saturday Morning cartoons. How about the filmation DC heroes cartoons from late 60's -- where it seemed like half the voice were done by Ted Knight ? Aquaman throwing waterballs ? Clark Kent's wimpy voice " This looks like a job ... ( insert Superman-ly voice ) ... for SUPERMAN ! " Good times.
