  1. Taylor, who was swift. :D

    I ordered mine on the 16th of September.

  2. Oddly enough, I ordered it exactly the same day. Apparently it's going to be in a large box along with the Sleater-Kinney box set I ordered three weeks ago. Sounds like a lot of us are taking heavy shots to the wallet this week...

    I've found that the DVD/Blu stock varies considerably between Costco locations.

    We have several Costco stores locally, of which I patronize two of those semi-regularly. The DVD section in one of them has shrunk over the past several years to a fraction of its former size, so I generally favor the other location (which is much better stocked) when I'm intent on DVD shopping. That location had at least ten copies of WKRP, several copies of the complete Welcome Back, Kotter set, and a half-dozen copies of the Merv Griffin Show set.

    I mentioned this to a friend, who went to the other location only to find that none of these titles were anywhere to be found. YMMV.

    Mine has half of one full aisle dedicated to DVDs (the other half is books). They had plenty of Merv and Kotter and tons of Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter sets. No WKRP. :shrug:

    I've 5 or 6 Costco's within 30 minutes of me (I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing...). The one I stopped at Thursday had about 10 copies.

    Now that this is released, I wonder if they will stream these on Hulu, since the show is available on there (the old dvd version, i believe).

    Shout Factory's complete-series SGT. BILKO set is due out on Tuesday. I suppose it would be too much to hope for that Costco would wind up stocking that set priced comparably to what they're selling the WKRP set for.

    The Costco SKU # is 943272, in case you want them to check in their system for stock. Unfortunately, they seem to assign the same SKU # to various products sometimes, and apparently the Welcome Back Kotter set is coded with the same SKU as WKRP. My uncle works at a NJ Costco. He saw 6 copies in their system under that SKU. Turned out that was 5 Kotters and 1 WKRP. Now, it's zero WKRP's. :winkgrin:

    I got the same info and was advised to ask for a "visual" if calling other stores to see if they had WKRP.

    Amazed at the price differences. Costco carries WKRP and Kotter for $58 each. Amazon is now charging $110 for WKRP (not from 3rd party seller) but $82 for Kotter.

    I've just watched the first three episodes, and it's heaven! :)
    Just noticed the first of a few Grateful Dead references; during the third episode, just as Les is mispronouncing Chi Chi Rodriguez, you see Johnny has the Steal Your Face record in his hands. I'm gonna try and list them all. :)

    Just got the set today from a Costco member, and am surprised at how good the episodes I've sampled look on my HDTV. A lot of older shows don't fare so well on my TV.

    Got this set for my Birthday a few weeks back. Been digging in - mainly second season so far - and love it! Can't believe how good it looks after watching dull VHS tapes for so long. Also, been catching a ton of lines and little scenes that have been cut out of the syndication versions of episodes. Probably haven't seen those scenes since the first run. Oh, and had to watch 'The Contest' first for that different last 1/4 or 1/3 of the show.

    The depressing part about that article is that Shout "has looked at" releasing Ed. I assume the past tense means they're not looking at it anymore. It was a colossal, inexcusable blunder on the part of that show's creators to not clear music given that Ed debuted in the DVD era (Fall 2000).

    Anyway, I've watched the first eight episodes (thought the Pink Floyd omission was handled very well), the "Hot Blooded" scene, and maybe my favorite episode of the whole run, "Baby, It's Cold Inside."

    OK...reasons to keep the Fox S1 set?

    The end of "The Contest that Nobody Could Win"?

    I don't have the new set yet, but if the ending has completely changed on there I'd keep the old set.

    I was going to ask about that. I got the set recently and I just watched that episode. It seemed to be a different ending then I remember. In the original Johnny walked out with the phony winner and was able to get the 5,000 dollars back. That is how I remember it. In this version, the crook got away with the money and Johnny ends up asking his radio listeners for 10,000 dollars to help in his own Johnny Fever relief fund. I might have to buy the Season 1 set after all. Why was the ending changed? Music related or something else?
    P.S. I really like the set so far(I am in season 1) The only other change that I noticed was the replacement of the Pink Floyd song and I thought that was handled about as well as it could be.

    You're remembering correctly. I don't know if there was ever an explanation why that episode is different than what was broadcast. Maybe that's really the original?

    Florida's my most recent version of "the big list". This should contain every song used in the series, and how replacements were treated on the DVD set. Thanks to Brian at "HTF" for his help in completing it. We worked together over there to create a similar list. This one differs, as it also adds how the music was replaced.

    There are 2 items left that remain a mystery:

    There is a small bit of music played just before Carlson's campaign commercial in "Carlson For President" which is unidentified (it could very well just be a bit of production music).

    I have identified the source of the last piece of music used in "Up And Down The Dial", but don't have a song title.

    Here we go.....

    If my math is correct, Shout! Factory managed 85-90% clearance.

    Oops....looks like I missed a "Running Time" or three....just note that all episodes run longer than 24 minutes, with most around 25 minutes (no syndication cuts here).

    There is definitely a very brief, very subtle play of Donny Hathaway/Roberta Flack "The Closer I get To You" near the beginning of one of the first six episodes of Season 1. I have to go back and listen, but I could bet it's there, and would have to be added to that stellar list.

    The first song on "Bailey's Show" S1 Ep. 6 was thought to be Roberta Flack, but turned out to actually be L.T.D.'s "We Deserve Each Other's Love" (confirmed with 2 types of song recognition software). It does sound fairly close, though.
