Going away? Post so here!
Time

Taking some time off to finally get my long delayed cataract surgery. Not looking forward to it, but I’d rather endure some short term discomfort than go through life fearing walking into an open manhole cover. It will be nice to see the world clearly again, especially pedestrian crossing lights.

Anchorhead, Jason, and Tobar will still be on the job in my absence, so pester them, be excellent to each other, and try not to burn the forum down, please? Thank you! 😃

What happened to the Nelvana negatives, does anyone know?

Because if they don’t exist all they would have is broadcast tapes. Good enough for DVD and streaming, arguably. But for HD nope.

The shows aired and were released on video all over the world. And were edited on film, not tape. Therefore, prints must exist.

Star Trek: The Original Series preservation (a WIP)

Similar things have happened with 80’s horror movies. Japanese discs command even more money for some reason. But nothing tops the insane prices for titles that came out at the very end.

The Season One TOS set has one thing never released on video elsewhere, the first all color broadcast of The Cage that was hosted by Patrick Stewart in 1988.

Oh god they’re doing it. They’re releasing this random stuff and not the OOT.

There have been preservation projects for Ewoks and Droids around here for several years, attempting to scrounge together various far flung video releases from around the world. (I curse the time I loaned my own off-air copies to the girlfriend of a college buddy in 1989, and never got it back.) There’s a lot to be glad about here. Droids is sure to follow.

Good question! It’s been murky if Fox/Lucasfilm ever had the film elements or Nelvana had them. They lost some stuff in a vault fire some years ago, and the workprint of Rock & Rule was a casualty.

The Story Of The Faithful Wookiee? I have never heard the animated segment called that before…

This is gonna offend a lot of the bootyblasted reactionary demographic, but it’s actually really easy to not be called bigoted by progressives. If you think it’s difficult at all, it is a personal failure on your part and nobody is required to cater to and make exceptions for your bad behavior.

Oh yes, everyone who doesn’t bow to the left indoctrination has failed, failed in being a complete retard. LOL
Congratulations to Gina Carano, for not being a complete retard.

Kindly do not use the R word around here again. It’s offensive.
