On 23 November, Time Life is releasing the complete series box set for ‘70s TV classic The Six Million Dollar Man. I confess to following this show religiously as a kid along with the Bionic Woman and one of the highlights of my very early childhood was meeting Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman) in Denver at a children’s hospital. The set includes 40 DVDs covering the show’s five seasons along with 30 hours of bonus features. It’s treasure trove for ‘70s TV geeks as it also includes the three pilot TV movies and the three reunion shows. Today, we present the premiere of the DVD trailer along with an extra clip to whet your appetite. Yep, I want this one for Christmas.

I’ve long been an admirer of Geena Davis, of her daring commitment to originality in a plastic business, of her sharp sense of humor, and of her formidable, MENSA-approved intellect. Let us not forget that she was also one half of Thelma and Louise, one of the most iconic, brilliant pieces of feminist cinema of all time, and that she is a champion archer. And a working mother.
If there was any doubt that Davis could claim the credit of “hero” on her resume, than her current project, The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, forever cements her reputation as a passionate crusader for women. According to the Institute’s official website (www.SeeJane.org)“six years ago, while watching children’s television programs and videos with her young daughter, Davis noticed a remarkable imbalance in the ratio of male to female characters. From that small starting point, Davis went on to raise funds for the largest research project ever undertaken on gender in children’s entertainment.”
Davis recently talked about her work with David Frost:
W. Scott Poole’s recent PopMatters review of the Blu-Ray edition of The Blair Witch Project stung a little bit. While I think Poole absolutely nailed all of the problems inherent in improving the AV quality of a film that was supposed to be shot on handheld camcorders, I also have always had a soft spot for the Blair Witch deep in my heart, so it was a bit tough to see the film described as “dated”.
Which brings me, of course, to this post! Watch below:
Now watch over here.
Frightening how relevant the movie just became, eh?
As a concert fan who not only loves going to show, but also loves experiencing concerts through the eyes of fellow fans via mobile phones and hand-held cameras, I’ve had a lot of fun watching and learning about the new Radiohead Live in Praha DVD made by fans during the band’s August 29, 2009 concert in Prague at the Výstavištĕ Holešovice Exhibition Hall.
Though the project was impressive and inspiring, there a few things that would’ve made it even better.
I should tell you first that I understand how difficult developing and executing such a project can be. And what impressed me the most was the editing job and the collaboration of the fans/filmmakers and how they were able to pull a team of 80 people together to create the DVD.
