The Complete Frank Ballinger

TVShowsOnDVD.com has announced the good news that the missing M Squad episodes actively being sought for a release by Timeless Media Group have been recovered, and so M Squad: The Complete Series will hit the streets on November 11th. The price tag on this baby? $119.98 is the SRP, but even with an online discount that’s a heavy-duty strain on the wallet. I want to support this release, because I had it on my “I’d buy that for a dollar” list back in July (I’ll probably need to update that soon)…so I guess this means I’m going to need to get a paper route.

Also in television-on-disc news—courtesy of Messrs. Lacey and Lambert—Amazon.com has apparently struck a deal with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment that will allow the Internet retailer behemoth to sell Quark: The Complete Series ahead of their competition…they’ll be able to ship it to you on September 2nd (which, by the merest of coinky-dinks, happens to be your humble narrator’s natal anniversary—not that I’m dropping any hints or anything). I have to admit, I was kind of surprised by the positive reaction of several commentators when I posted the Quark news—apparently I’m not the only one who used to watch this funny, woefully short-lived series. (Why is it that the shows that ultimately tanked in the Nielsens turn out to have such a devoted fan base? You don’t suppose this thing is…rigged…do ya?)
