That may be a part of the reason, but as I
understand it, Tommy Smothers is also particular
about which episodes are released. I notice the
sets that did come out skipped the first season
(the season three set was actually released first),
so Tommy must not have cared for the first season,
I guess.

I own the two sets, and this conversation got me
curious if they released any more sets. That's when
I noticed, as you mentioned, how pricey the now
out of print sets go for on the internet these
days. I enjoy the sets too much to part with, but
man it's crazy how much some sets have sold for
online. Thanks for the response about GetTV. I will
have to see if its available in my area.

Tommy seems like the quite the volatile figure, so I am not surprised he would
be particular about the DVD release!

Falling back on my go-to binge-watching in times of trouble:

PARKS & RECREATION

Never fails to make me smile and laugh out loud, if I watch an episode or two before bed.  Right now, I need this show more than ever.

And I want to live in Pawnee...

Discovered more episodes of HE & SHE (1967) on YouTube. Delighted with how well they hold up.

Looking on YouTube last night I found "Stephen Banks - Home Entertainment Center".

A great one man show that probably demonstrates what most of us go through while stuck at home now.

Very funny and some entertaining music numbers from the multi talented writer.

Just YouTubing some collections of TV themes from the Seventies. Oy! Did people watch these shows? Did I watch them? They seem like parodies. Oy.

One fan's trash is another's beloved childhood memory... I always get a time-traveller's blast from the past out of Sonny Curtis' theme(s) for The Mary Tyler Moore Show myself. Also The Bob Newhart Show closing theme. There was a CD I actually bought with nothing but old U.S. tv game show themes. It could be a Pavlov's dog scenario, I was partly raised by a b&w Zenith cabinet job and later a smaller colour RCA (though the Zenith then became the kids' set).

I've been watching Star Trek: Picard. I saw ep. 5 when it was on to see him meeting Seven Of Nine and now I've watched the first seven eps on-demand over three days and it's a lot better show than I expected although Patrick Stewart seems very old now. If you have any affection for The Next Generation it's worth finding and giving a chance. I could still swear Dr. Agnes knocks the head off a virtual Rog 2000 in ep. 5! Three more eps. lined up on demand and then it looks like a long wait for a season 2.

Thanks to the COVID-19 vacation from work, I spent much of the previous week re-watching the first season of STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE. 

During its initial broadcast run in 1993 I wasnít able to see all of the episodes due to my job (I was on active duty at the time). And Iím afraid there wasnít a lot of white space on my calendar for watching DS9 in the years that followed for the same reason.

Catching season 1 on Netflix was both good and bad for me. It was good because I saw several episodes that I had completely missed and that helped fill in the gaps for some of the major characters. The bad news was that I also revisited the religious undercurrents of the show, which did not sit well with me at the time.

Granted, I am nearly thirty years older now and can stomach organized religion a lot better than I could in my late 20ís. But I didnít stick with DS9 long enough in the mid 90ís to see if they were able to work within the religious parameters to make good Trek. I am not sure if watching the following seasons will bear fruit or if I am going to have the words of the Bajoran Prophets hammering at me for another 150+ episodes.

Any feedback from the JBF members would be appreciated.
