I just received an e-mail from loyal reader-commenter Bob Huggins—or, as he’s oft-referred to here at TDOY, “Master of His (Public) Domain.” With BCI-Eclipse going out of business, Oldies.com is having a clearance sale on some of the company’s TV-on-DVD box sets—you can pick up Wanted: Dead or Alive – Season 1 and Season 3 for $12.95 apiece, and Season 2 for $9.95. (A fine opportunity to snatch up the TV Western that made Steve McQueen a household name!)
Other titles for sale include both volumes of the first season of Ultraman for $9.95 apiece, Season 1 of the childhood favorite New Zoo Revue ($5.95), Space Academy ($8.95), Secrets of Isis ($8.95…and yes, I just put this one in the cart, thank you much)…anything released by BCI-Eclipse, you name it and it’s probably on sale. (I even located a couple of British programs, the first two series of the sitcom Man About the House and the first series of the crime drama The Sweeney on sale as well.)
Probably the biggest deal you’ll latch onto is Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom: Definitive Fifty Episode Collection, which sells for a mere $12.95. Now you can wallow into animal documentary nostalgia with Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler’s long-running series…only this time, you’ll be watching from the safety of your DVD player.
Again, many thanks and kudos to Bob for giving me this heads-up.
