Warner Bros Warner Archive DVD film and TV discussion thread

Have done a forum thread search and there doesn't appear to be an existing thread for discussion about the Warner Archive's DVD film titles.

Recently, the Warner Archive released the Richard Todd film Chase a Crooked Shadow on DVD. How does the transfer compare to the DVD release by Optimum Home Entertainment (now the UK branch of Studio Canal)?

TV drama titles released by the WAC (completed TV series):

Beyond Westworld: The Complete Series
Harry O: The Complete First Season
Harry O: The Complete Second and Final Season
The Lazarus Man: The Complete Series

[Show spoiler]Medical Center: The Complete First Season (remastered)
Medical Center: The Complete Second Season (remastered)
Medical Center: The Complete Third Season (remastered)
Medical Center: The Complete Fourth Season (remastered)
Medical Center: The Complete Fifth Season (remastered)
Medical Center: The Complete Sixth Season
Medical Center: The Complete Seventh and Final Season


TV drama titles released by the WAC (incompleted TV series):

The Eleventh Hour: The Complete First Season: Parts One & Two
Mr. Novak: The Complete First Season
Paradise: The Complete First Season

*Work in progress*

Would have asked about this German DVD title in the German sub-folder, but that's for Blu-ray titles. Recently, the Warner Archive released The Stranger Collection, three spaghetti westerns or westerns starring Tony Anthony as The Stranger. It was a two-disc DVD set.

Recently, I found out that a three-disc set was released on DVD in Germany back in January, containing I think the same three films. Do both the Warner Archive and German DVD releases of these three films have the same transfers? Have they had any restoration work done to them?

Has anyone here got the Warner Archive DVD complete series boxset of 60's TV series Sam Benedict? Of what I've seen so far of their DVD release of The Eleventh Hour: The Complete First Season, the episodes have existing masters. Is it the same with Sam Benedict?

EDIT: Regarding the edited thread title, thanks for the speedy response, and for the addition of the Warner Brothers logo to the thread title and the left-hand column.

I don't have the DVDs but I did watch the entire series on the Warner Archive streaming service. Yes, looked like just existing masters, but it was sourced from 35mm and generally looked good. One episode was in color.

I'm curious about this release too--how does the series hold up?

Just this week I ordered the Warner Archive release of My Blue Heaven (a Steve Martin / Rick Moranis movie from the early 90s).

Years ago there was a regular DVD release, but it was only in fullscreen/pan-&-scan, so I never bought it. This release is supposed to be in widescreen. I hope the quality is good.

I would prefer a Blu-Ray release, but for now I'll take what I can get. Finally having it available in widescreen is enough to get me to buy it.

Hilarious movie. I always loved the Vinnie character and have randomly quoted a few lines here and there over the years. Steve Martin played a few great 'conman' characters during that era with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Leap of Faith being pretty underrated as well. The digital hdx is a big upgrade over the old p&s dvd and I wouldn't be surprised if the WA dvd looks solid as well.

I know some of the TV titles have been made available on pressed DVDs, but did this ever happen with any of the movie titles released under the Archive banner?

I've never seen it for movies myself, only TV titles, but someone said that they had in a different WB thread: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.p...postcount=3461

The Warner Archive DVDs I have all look amazing. They look as good as some of the blu rays I have (there are a lot of blu rays out there that are a total scam).

Just ordered Perfect Strangers Season 5, only need to get Season 6, and I'm guessing 7/8 will be one release since 8 only had 6 episodes.

Does WBShop ever have decent coupons? I really want to get all the seasons of Night Court, but would love to get a deal on S4-9.

Around the time of Valentine's Day, I'm sure there was a discount voucher/coupon which could be used on the WbShop website (think it was something like 10% off titles). I don't think there has been a discount voucher/coupon since. Hoping there is going to be a sale around Easter.

Hoping we see the announcement of the Warner Archive's April DVD slate this week, as the Blu-ray film titles have been announced. Don't know what to expect with TV titles. Hoping that Step by Step's fifth season is out in April.

Is there a list anywhere of replicated releases from the Warner Archive that is updated regularly? They used to have a section on their website but it seems to be long gone. I know some mult-disc sets are replicated, at least on their initial runs. Also, for some reason my copy of Run of the Arrow is replicated. I know Show Boat and Lusty Men were announced as such but I don’t recall Run of the Arrow advertised as replicated. Did they sneak out any other replicated titles like Run of the Arrow?

I was wondering if the Warner Archive still do DVD sets with pressed discs (silver-sided on the reverse) on initial copies. I thought it used to be that the first thousand copies were pressed discs, then after that they were DVD-R discs (purple-sided on the reverse).

Is December usually a quiet month for the Warner Archive? Not expecting the sixth season of Step by Step to be released in December (it would be great if it did, but I'm not expecting it to be released until February at the earliest).

Does the Warner Archive's DVD release of the third season of Dr. Kildare include the Eleventh Hour crossover episode "Four Feet in the Morning" as a bonus feature?

Following the Warner Archive January announcements, have checked Deep Discount's Warner Archive TV titles pre-order section, and there's no sign of Step by Step's sixth season, The Blue Knight (starring George Kennedy), and the second (and final) seasons of The Eleventh Hour and Mr. Novak.
