-Kris L. CocKayne-
Because of two of the episodes! "Ring Around The Redhead" is a delightful fantasy. And "Distant Signals" is a perfect gem. I enjoyed the 23 minutes of this show more than I did most full SF movies - it would rank in MY top 10, despite being so brief.
Of course not.
Does it meet my expectations of what I have come to expect from Paramount?
Of course it does.
I know perfectly well that they hate horror fans and release shoddy material all the time... so I guess I was expecting this all along.
Season two now has arrived. 12 episodes have been re-scored (butchered) and 12 have kept their music, so half the release has been changed. The video still looks like a crappy VHS tape of course, and this time around, Paramount only gives us a crumby 5 minute interview with George Romero.
The episodes with changed music include:
The Devil's Advocate ( no more classic tune at the conclusion)
The Trouble with Mary Jane
Effect and Cause
A New Lease on Life
The Last Car ( A great score that is now completely ruined!)
The Uhappy Medium
The Casavin Curse (one of my favorite episodes, now butchered)
Episodes with their score intact are: Ring around the redhead
Parlour Floor Front
The Satanic Piano
Monsters In My Room
The Old Soft Shoe
A Choice of Dreams
Fear of Floating
Utterly ridiculous! I am praying that Shout factory or Anchor Bay/Blue Underground get the rights to this show because they care about films and they care about consumers. Paramount cares about neither. Just the almighty dollar. Save your cash and download the REAL episodes online!
