I got my set in the mail this morning. Below is an excerpt from a review I started. I'm afraid it's bad news

The episodes are not remastered, and are the same prints that ran on TV Land in the late 1990s. But that isnít the worst of it. Of the 36 episodes on the set, only 7 of them are uncut versions that run around 24:40. The remainder are all syndication versions that have been cut to 21:40. Thereís a disclaimer about the masters being the best they had to work with, but nothing about the edits, so if you are a stickler, consider this a warning. This show is not exactly high-profile so Iím afraid we fans are going to have to live with this set, because there isnít going to be another ANGIE releaseójust accept what IS here and enjoy some mild nostalgia.

21:40 is rather short for editing even for CBS Television Syndication (Who owns the Paramount TV Library) where the average is 22:10 - 22:30 for syndicated versions of half-hour shows in their library.

I wonder if the 21:40 are ABC Daytime edits from the 1985 summer run?

The episodes are missing around 3 minutes of scenes. The picture quality looks ok but since they are edited ...I am going to wait for it to be put on sale during the Christmas Holidays. I am not paying $30 plus for edited episodes.

This is disappointing. I just consider this better than nothing. It is a good idea to wait for a sale. I almost always wait for sales/promotions etc. My DVD collection is much larger based on waiting for the price to come down, rather than paying top dollar for everything. There's only so much money to go around or that I am willing to spend.

So, other than the editing, how is everyone enjoying the series?

It's nice to see for nostalgia. The cast are better than the material though. The scripts are just average, and it plays now like a blander version of RHODA, IMO. Still glad they finally released it.

Mine is supposedly coming today so I am happy. I am sort of upset that many episodes are edited but at this point we may never see this show in any other kind of release. We sort of have to accept it for what it is. Considering the prices of several complete collections out there, this one is pretty cheap. Sister Sister and The Parkers are twice that price (when they were first released, the price was over 100 dollars for each set) on the VEI website and neither one of those shows are as good or even considered classic.


I have a 3 day weekend coming up so watching this will kill most of that time. I am perplexed by the editing though. Why is this set filled with episodes that are roughly 21 minutes and 20 or so seconds, when typical syndicated prints are roughly 22 minutes and about 15 or so seconds. That is an additional minute and a few seconds taken from each episode.

How long did the episodes run on TV Land and wherever else Angie ran in syndication? I am trying to figure out if they used the same prints or had to do some additional editing for content.

I assume these VEI titles eventually will show up on Retailer's websites? If so I wonder how long it takes? I am surprised that it has not shown up anywhere. I have purchased VEI titles from Amazon before. Does anyone have any idea or thoughts about this?

thanks

I really don't have much opinion on why it is not available elsewhere. It is affordable and ships fast provided by VEI so I can't speak to that.

It will probably eventually show up on other websites, but it may be a VEI exclusive at the moment.

Angie is a wonderful show but isn't popular enough to warrant another DVD release. Shout Factory or any other company wanting to rerelease this set would need to see a big demand before they went ahead and did that.

I disagree because look at Rhoda WKRP Green Acres and other classic shows and look at what they have done Shout Factory will take this classic show if they see allot of request

There are differences with the shows you listed. Green Acres was released and production of the DVDs stopped after season 3. Of course collectors and fans of the show would demand the releases to continue to complete their collection. The other shows you mentioned were not previously released or stopped being produced after one season.

I agree that Shout Factory releases rare and classic stuff but no so much rereleases material that is already out there.

We would need a company like Mill Creek to step in if we were hoping for a rerelease of Angie.
