Time Life Entertainment has in recent years become one of the leading names in home entertainment.  That is thanks to the release of series such as The Real Ghostbusters, and collections from other classic series such as The Dean martin Celebrity Roasts, Hee Haw, The Johnny Carson Show and one of CBS’ brightest gems, The Carol Burnett Show.  Over the course of the past couple of years the latter of that group has seen a number of DVD releases made available courtesy of Time Life Entertainment. Late this summer audiences saw what could very well be the pinnacle of those releases in the form of The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition.  This 22-disc collection is a set that the series’ most hardcore fans will appreciate.  That is due in large part to the material that is included within the set.  That will be discussed shortly.  The set’s packaging is just as noteworthy as the material contained therein.  That will be discussed later.  Last but hardly least of note in the set is its bonus material.  Each element proves to be important in its own right to the whole of The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition.  All things considered, this collection proves to be one of the year’s top new box sets for grown-up audiences.

Time Life Entertainment’s recently released Carol Burnett Show box set The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition is one of this year’s top new box sets for grown-up audiences.  That is due in part to the material that is contained within the collection.  Audiences will note that most prominent inside the box are three of the series’ previously released standalone Lost Episodes collections—Classic Carol, Treasures From The Vault, and The Lost Episodes.  The three sets contain a total of 3,163 minutes spread across 18 discs.  That is a little nearly 53 hours of entertainment for audiences, including not just the sets’ featured episodes but lots of bonus material, too.  The all-important episode guides included in the sets’ original releases are there, too.  As if the inclusion of those sets isn’t enough for audiences, Time Life Entertainment has also included two extra double-disc sets with the set, one of which features the previously released Carol + 2 box set.  That box set also included Once Upon A Mattress, which itself is also included in the new noted box inside this much bigger collection.  It also includes a feature on the origin of The Charwoman, two other featurettes (which this critic will let audiences discover for themselves) and a handful of extra interviews.  The second of the set’s bonus sets includes its own share of extra material.  That extra material includes even more interviews with celebrities who have shared the stage with Burnett and those who have been influenced by her work.  It also includes the second part of a roundtable talk with the show’s writers and even more outtakes for audiences to enjoy.  In the simplest terms possible, the material that is included inside The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition includes both previously released material and some new material all housed within one much larger set.  Being that it is all housed within one full set, it will save a certain amount of space for anyone who has already spent the money on the previously noted standalone sets.  Speaking of that space-saving, that is another reason that this recently released box set will impress fans of the classic variety series.

The material that is contained within The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition is in itself a key element to note in examining this recently released Carol Burnett Show box set.  It is not the only element to examine in studying the set’s overall presentation, though.  The set’s packaging is just as important to note as its material in examining its presentation.  The five boxes and 22 discs that make up the body of the box set are contained in a box that is very similar in style to that presented in The Carol Burnett Show: Ultimate Collection, which was released in 2014.  For those that might not be familiar with that packaging style, it is a medium-size rectangular box.  The only thing that separates the two boxes is that the box for the latest Carol Burnett Show collection is slightly smaller than that of The Carol Burnett Show: Ultimate Collection.  It—The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition—measures roughly 11” X 7.5” X 3”.  What this means is that the box really is not that big.  So it won’t take up a whole lot of space in a fan’s home regardless of where it is stored.  At the time, it isn’t that big, which is good in its own right, but it packs a big punch with all of the material that it houses.  That is because it will, again, allow audiences who purchased the Time Life’s previously released Lost Episodes collections to eliminate them and replace them with this much more extensive box set.  And the box set doesn’t take up that much room despite being a box set itself.  Keeping all of this in mind, The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition boasts plenty for fans to appreciate.  It still is not all that makes this box set stand out.  The bonus material that is included in the box set rounds out its most important elements.

The material contained within The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition and the set’s packaging are both key elements to note in examining the set’s presentation. As important as they are to the set’s presentation, they are not its only noteworthy elements.  The bonus material that is included in the set is just as important as those previously noted elements to the set’s presentation.  The bonus material comes in the form of a “Guest Book” presented a la Burnett’s own guest book, which she would have guests at the end of each episode of her hit show.  The guest book opens with an introduction by Burnett herself explaining why it has taken so many decades for any episodes from the series’ first five seasons to finally be available.  The story that she tells is both entertaining and insightful.  Along the way there are quotes from some of television’s biggest stars past and present across the entertainment world and even more tidbits of information about certain skits shown throughout the show’s run.

The stars who are quoted include Tony Benett, Queen Latifah, Jonathan Winters, Bernadette Peters, Lucille Ball and many others.  The information included in the guest book a hilarious interview between comedian Flip Wilson and one of Carol’s audience members, a revelation by Vicki Lawrence about watching Cher perform next door to The Carol Burnett Show’s studio, and notes from Alan Alda (M.A.S.H.) and Burnett about Tim Conway along with Carol Burnett Show writer Gail Parent.  This is hardly all of the information provided within the set’s bonus guest book.  There is so much more for audiences to enjoy when they order the set for themselves.  Between all of its information, the quotes from the stars and the very breadth of stars featured in the guest book, the set’s guest book proves to live up to its title of bonus material.  When it is partnered with the set’s packaging and presented material, all three elements join to show why The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition is such an enjoyable collection for the series’ most devoted fans.  All things considered, this recently released box set reveals itself to be one more of this year’s top new box sets for grown-up audiences.

The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes VIP Signed Edition is one of this year’s top new box sets for grown-up audiences.  It is a collection that any of the series’ most devoted fans will appreciate.  That is due in part to the material that is presented within the set.  The packaging that houses that material is just as important to the set’s presentation as the material that makes up its body.  The bonus guest book that is included with the featured material rounds out the set’s most important elements.  When it is partnered with the previously noted elements, all three elements come together to make this collection, again, one of this year’s top new box sets for grown-up audiences.

Time Life’s Latest ‘Hee Haw’ Collection Is Loads More “Kornpone Komedy”

Courtesy: Time Life Entertainment/StarVista

Time Life Entertainment is taking audiences on a trip back to Kornfield Kounty. That is thanks to is a new fourteen-disc collection of Hee Haw episodes titled Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition.  This latest compilation is a welcome addition to any Hee Haw fan’s personal DVD library.  That is due in part to the episodes that have been culled for the collection.  That will be discussed shortly.  The production values presented within the episodes is another key element to note in examining the collection’s presentation.  They will be discussed later.  Last and hardly least of note in the set’s presentation is its packaging.  Each element plays its own important part in the set’s presentation.  Altogether they show completely why Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition is such an enjoyable collection.

Time Life Entertainment’s recently released Hee Haw box set Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition is hardly the first Hee Haw collection that the company has ever released.  That aside it is one of the most extensive of the show’s collections that Time Life has released in recent memory.  Keeping that in mind, the episodes that are presented in the collection make up the most important of the set’s elements.  All twenty-three episodes that are presented across the collection’s three box sets have already been released in their own respective box sets before.  That might not seem important on the surface.  But the fact of the matter is that even though they have been released, having at least these episodes in one place saves at least some space on fans’ DVD racks; especially fans who might not already own any of the show’s others collections, including the shows full series set.

On a related note, Amazon and Time Life are listing this collection’s pricing at an MSRP of $114.  That might seem rather expensive to some.  By comparison, the also recently released Hee Haw: Return To Kornfield Kounty boasts only nine episodes spread across sixteen discs and is being listed at $99.99.  So it boasts more discs, but far fewer episodes.  Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition presents twenty-three episodes over fourteen discs.  And while the price might be higher than that of Hee Haw: Return to Kornfield Kounty, it is a price that is economical.  For more comparison, the six-disc Hee Haw Collection—which is part of the Hee Haw: The  Collector’s Edition—is retailing on Amazon and Time Life at MSRP of $119.  Again, keeping that in mind, it makes this fourteen-disc set’s pricing even more of a non-factor.  And the seven-disc collection that is another part of the collection is almost impossible to find by itself today.  All things considered, the collections that make up the body of Time Life’s new Hee Haw collection and its pricing work together to show in themselves a big reason that this collection is welcome in any Hee Haw fan’s home DVD library.  They are collectively just part of the reason that this latest set is so welcome is fan’s homes.  The production values presented in the collected episodes are just as important to note in the set’s presentation as the episodes themselves and the set’s related pricing.

The episodes that make up the body of Time Life’s new Hee Haw collection and its related pricing are key elements in their own right in examining the set’s presentation.  While the episodes presented here have each been previously released, having them in one collection, and at a price that is considerably economical compared to other recent Hee Haw collections, does plenty for the collection.  Of course they are only part of what makes Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition stand out among Time Life’s many Hee Haw collections.  The production values presented in each episode are just as important to note here as the episodes and the set’s related pricing.  The episodes included in this collection boast the same grainy look that they boasted in their original broadcast so many years ago.  Some even have the static lines that were visible in the original VHS footage of the show.  The thing is that even with those imperfections being there, there is something about them that serves to make the episodes…well…perfect.  They serve the nostalgia of fans who remember watching the show all those years ago, regardless of how old they were when they originally saw said episodes.  In the same vein, the audio in each episode is just as impressive as the show’s video mix.  The cuts between segments are fast-paced, too, thus keeping audiences engaged and entertained throughout.  When that is taken into consideration with the episodes, it shows even more why this collection is so welcome in any Hee Haw fan’s home DVD library.  It is still not the last element to examine in the collection’s presentation.  The last element to examine in the collection’s presentation is the bonus material that is included in the set.

The episodes that were culled for Time Life’s recently released Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition, the set’s pricing, and the production values presented throughout the set’s episodes are each important in their own right to the collection’s presentation.  While each element is undeniably important in its own right to the collection’s presentation, they are not its only important elements.  The set’s packaging is just as important to note in examining its presentation as the other noted elements.  All three of the previously released collections that make up the body of the collection are housed within one larger box that houses them.  The box is, in reality, not that big in itself.  It is just large enough to house each of the three boxes that make up the collection.  Considering this, one could easily argue that it saves at least some space on fans’ DVD racks.  Given, even if all three sets were placed next to each other without the containing box, it would take up the same amount of space as they would with the extra containing box.  But at least the sets that were chosen for the collection are not that big to begin with.  Keeping that in mind, it proves the overall packaging to still be its own positive to the set’s collection.  When it is set alongside the set’s featured episodes, the set’s pricing, and the episodes’ production values, the set’s presentation shows in whole to be one that any Hee Haw fan will appreciate.  In turn, this proves once again why Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition is one more welcome addition to any Hee Haw fan’s home DVD library.

Hee Haw: The Collector’s Edition is yet another welcome addition to any Hee Haw fan’s home DVD library.  That is evident in the collection’s featured episodes, and by relation, its pricing.  The production values presented throughout each episode and the set’s packaging each play their own important part in the collection’s presentation, too.  All things considered, this recently released box set proves once more why it is another welcome addition to any Hee Haw fan’s home DVD library.  It is available now and can be ordered online direct via Amazon.  More information on this and other titles from Time Life Entertainment is available online now at:

Time Life’s Latest Hee Haw Collection Is Small But Packs Lots Of Laughs

Courtesy:  Time Life Entertainment/StarVista Entertainment

Courtesy: Time Life Entertainment/StarVista Entertainment

CBS’ classic variety series Hee Haw is one of the most surprising series in television’s modern history.  That is because of the length of its run.  It initially ran for two years on CBS from 1969 to 1971 before the network dropped the show, which was originally a replacement for another variety show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.  Even after begin cut from CBS’ ranks as part of its “rural purge” the show still managed to stay on the air in a variety of fashions until 1993.  Even after it finally ended its run on television, it still has not stayed dead thanks to Time Life Entertainment.  When the networks relinquished the reins on the show Time Life picked them up and has kept the show alive for yet another generation thanks to its DVD box sets featuring the show’s episodes.  Time Life has been churning out those box sets for a number of years.  And next Tuesday it will release yet another collection of episodes in the form of The Hee Haw Collection: Kornfield Klassics.  The core element of this collection is its episodes.  Unlike so many Hee Haw collections before it, this collection features only enough episodes to fill a single disc.  More specifically it features just two episodes.  But they are still enjoyable in their own right.  That brings up the disc’s second most important element, the content of said episodes.  There’s plenty of country and bluegrass for fans of those genres.  There are also plenty of laughs to be had in the skits that serve as the episodes’ main body.  Last but not least of note in this latest collection of sorts is its collective production values and companion booklet.  These pieces of the disc’s presentation round out its most notable elements.  They play their own important part in the whole of Time Life Entertainment’s new Hee Haw presentation.  Together with the episodes and their overall content all three elements make The Hee Haw Collection: Kornfield Klassics a “collection” that any of the show’s fans should have in his or her own home DVD library.

Time Life Entertainment’s latest “collection” of classic Hee Haw episodes is one more that any of the show’s fans should have in his or her own home DVD library.  This is even with the single disc presentation boasting only two episodes.  Even with just two episodes, the episodes in question are still reason enough in itself for fans of the classic variety show to own this disc.  The episodes in question are both true classics.  They are both lifted from the series’ second season and feature plenty of great music and comedy.  Considering that the show was originally pulled from CBS’ lineup after its second season, this latest pairing becomes all the more important for fans.  It is a document of sorts of the show in its infancy; one that is quite rare nowadays.  That is even with so many other Hee Haw sets having been released over the past decade or so.  Of course the two episodes featured in this latest release are collectively just one important element in its overall presentation.  The actual content presented in each of the episodes is just as important as the episodes themselves.

The episodes that are featured in Time Life Entertainment’s new Hee Haw collection are in themselves an important part of its overall presentation.    They are only one important and notable element of its presentation.  The actual content within the featured episodes is just as important to the presentation of this disc as the episodes themselves.  What audiences get in these episodes is another sampling of what made (and continues to make) Hee Haw such an undervalued series.  Audiences get the classic doctor skit featuring the doc telling his patients not to do what hurts them, the fan favorite front porch skits with grandpa laying out telling jokes with Roy, and so many laugh riot outtakes that audiences themselves will be laughing tears of joy as they hold their sides on the floor.  This is just a miniscule example of what makes the episodes’ content so important to this release’s presentation.  There are also great performances from the likes of Roger Miller, Loretta Lynn, Peggy Little and lots more across both episodes.  Between the episodes’ great tunes, the laugh-a-minute skits and equally riotous outtakes included in the episodes, the whole of their presentation makes up for the fact that there are only two episodes featured in this collection.  Both episodes will keep audiences that well entertained. Keeping that in mind, both the episodes featured in this new Hee Haw presentation and their content prove hugely important to its overall presentation. They are not the disc’s only notable elements either. The episodes’ collective production values and the disc’s companion booklet are the last but hardly least important elements. The episodes’ production values—their audio and video mix—is so important to their presentation in that if there was any re-mastering done within these episodes it is nearly unnoticeable. That being the case, the look and sound of the episodes creates a wonderful, welcome sense of nostalgia for those that grew up watching this timeless series. And for those that are part of the new generation, the “rough” look of the show versus the spit-shined look and sound of today’s TV shows serve as a reminder of the life and soul of TV back in that era. The sound wasn’t rough per se. but at the same time, it’s clear that it didn’t have that “modern” sound either. Together with the original footage both elements together give a viewing experience that is in itself more than enough reason to see both episodes. On a related note, the companion booklet that comes with The Hee Haw Collection: Kornfield Klassics is just as important to its presentation as its collective production values. While there’s no specifics about the episodes’ air dates, audiences do at least get a guide in regards to the episodes’ makeup. More specifically it focuses on the musical performances contained within each episode. Audiences can choose between those performances when they choose the “index” option in the DVD’s main menu. Between the two elements, viewers can pick out from either show with ease which performance(s) they want to see. It would have been nice to choose the skits, too. But in Time Life’s defense, the skits move so fast that separating them out would not have made any real sense in hindsight. To that extent, the companion booklet included with this disc still plays its own important part in the overall presentation of the DVD. Together with the welcome, wonderful nostalgic feel that the footage brings in its production values, the two elements together give one more reason that audiences will want to experience these classic Hee Haw episodes. The same can be said just as easily when setting those elements against the DVD’s episodes and their nonstop, laugh-inciting content. All things considered The Hee Haw Collection: Kornfield Klassics is one more presentation that any Hee Haw fan will want to add to his or her own DVD library.

Time Life Entertainment’s latest Hee Haw presentation is yet another piece that any fan of the classic variety series should have in his or her own DVD library. This is evident through the classic episodes featured on the disc and their hilarious content. The wonderful and welcome feeling of nostalgia that is created in audiences in watching these episodes through their production values adds even more enjoyment to the disc’s viewing experience. The companion booklet that is included with the DVD even plays its own important role, making the process of choosing one classic performance or another all the easier for audiences. Each element plays its own important part in the whole of the DVD. Altogether they make The Hee Haw Collection: Kornfield Classics another must have for anyone that grew up with the classic variety series just as much as for the show’s new generation of audiences. It will be available next Tuesday, February 9th and can be ordered online via Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Hee-Haw-Kornfield-Klassics-DVD/dp/B018DSA8ZW/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1454689274&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=The+Hee+haw+Collection+Kornfield+Klassics.

Time Life’s Latest Hee Haw Collection Is Another “Time”-less Treasure

Courtesy:  Time Life Entertainment

Courtesy: Time Life Entertainment

CBS was at time the single greatest network on television.  It was home to so many great shows from every genre of programming.  Sadly today it has become little more than a pale shell of its former self.  Thankfully though, Time Life Entertainment has over recent years has been bringing many of those classics back to life on DVD.  One of the most notable of those series to be resurrected by Time Life Entertainment is CBS’ answer to NBC’s Laugh In, Hee Haw.  Time Life Entertainment has already released a number of Hee Haw collections over the years.  And now it will release one more collection next month in the form of a triple-disc set simply titled The Hee Haw Collection.  The main reason that this collection stands out for audiences is its inclusion of five episodes from the series.  While their inclusion is not the first time that they have been featured in one of Time Life’s Hee Haw collections, it does mark the first time that they have all been featured together in one setting.  Even the five-disc collection released in 2007 doesn’t feature the episodes included in this set together.  And up until now it had been the most extensive Hee Haw collection released to date.  The content contained within the episodes is just as important to note as the episodes themselves.  Between the deep fried jokes and the outstanding classic country performances, audiences of all ages and types.  The set’s production values round out the package.  Considering that at least two of the episodes featured here have been included in previous Hee Haw collections it goes without saying that they look and sound quite good.  The others look and sound just as impressive.  That being the case, it is safe to say that audiences will enjoy each episode and even the bonus material even more.  In enjoying the set so much, it will leave audiences hoping just as much as this critic that sooner rather than later Time Life Entertainment will start releasing Hee Haw’s complete season sets rather than teasing them with so many compilations.  Regardless of whether or not that happens, at least viewers will have this latest collection that they will love to watch time and again.

Time Life Entertainment’s latest collection of episodes from CBS’ classic comic variety series Hee Haw is yet another great piece for anyone that grew up watching this series.  It is just as much a piece that even those audiences today looking to escape all of the dramas and serials will enjoy.  That is because it is one more example of everything that once made television (and more directly CBS) great.  It presents five timeless episodes of the classic series on three discs; five episodes that will have audiences slapping their knees and laughing so hard that they cry tears of joy.  Of the five episodes featured in this set, it can be said with certainty that at least two of the episodes have been previously presented in other Hee Haw compilations.  Even with that in mind, it is not necessarily a bad thing.  That is because of the overall difficulty of finding any of the episodes featured in this collection.  Even if the other episodes have been previously featured in other Hee Haw sets the same argument still applies with them.  That being the case, all five episodes included in this latest collection, together with its bonus interviews and comedy reels, go a long way toward making The Hee Haw Collection well worth the purchase and the watch.  This is the case regardless of whether or not audiences already own other Hee Haw compilations.

The episodes and bonus material that has been jammed into The Hee Haw Collection’s new three-disc collection are more than enough reason for any viewer to add this set to their personal home DVD library.  That is the case regardless of whether or not they already own any of Time Life’s previous Hee Haw collections.  Looking at the set more closely, the material that makes up this collection is just as important as the episodes and bonus material.  The material in question is largely the type of material of which viewers such as this critic can only dream today.  It is composed of jokes that are largely family friendly alongside musical numbers from guest performers that are themselves the polar opposite of today’s big budget TV performances.  The set for the performers is simple.  The songs are simple.  Even the performers’ attire is simple.  There are no splashy, over the top outfits that leave nothing to the imagination either from the men or women.  The jokes include favorites such as the patient in the doctor’s office, telling the doctor of an ailment to which the doctor replies: “Don’t do that!” and even playful impersonations of different people and animals.  Even some of the musical performances themselves include little jokes for good measure.  Many of those moments in question come from Buck Owens and Roy Clark.  And they will have audiences laughing just as much as the show’s skits.  Whether for the laughs from those skits or for the entertainment offered by the classic performances by country’s biggest and most respected names, all of the content contained in The Hee Haw Collection is material that the whole family will enjoy and can enjoy alone or even better, together.  That is the best note of all.  The whole family can enjoy every bit of the set’s content.  That is nearly impossible to say of today’s programming.  For that reason alone both this set and Time Life Entertainment deserve two huge thumbs up.  One can only hope that for all of the Hee Haw collections that Time Life has released over the years, it will make even more available in the not too distant future not just as standalone sets but as entire season sets.  There’s a huge, not so subtle hint to the people at Time Life should they read this review.

The episodes contained within Time Life’s new Hee Haw Collection and the content therein are both key to the set’s overall success and enjoyment.  Of course if not for the work of those charged with restoring the vintage footage none of the material presented in this set would be worth even one watch.  Thankfully though, their efforts paid off in spades.  All five episodes are presented in their original 4:3 aspect ratio as are the bonus comedy bits and interviews.  What’s more every bit of the material maintains its original standard definition look.  Even when played on hi-def televisions, that original look doesn’t hold it back.  Believe it or not, there are those classic TV shows that when played back on a hi-def television look absolutely horrid.  They will remain nameless here.  Audiences know the shows.  That being said, the video portion of the episodes and bonus material looks surprisingly impressive even with some of it having been presented previously.  The same can be said of the audio, too.  Considering that all five episodes were lifted from very early in the series’ run (The episodes were pulled from the years between 1969 – 1973), it is incredible to hear such clean audio even all these years later.  Together with the equally impressive video mix, the overall production values presented in Time Life’s new Hee Haw Collection make the set in whole that much more worth the watch regardless of audiences’ familiarity with this classic and timeless series.  Together with the episodes presented here and their material therein, the set in whole proves to be one that anyone looking for real television and real worthwhile television will enjoy.  With any luck it will be just the latest stepping stone to Time Life finally releasing the series in whole or at least in its much needed (and deserved) full season standalone sets.  Regardless of whether or not that happens, it still stands on its own merits as a collection that audiences of all ages will welcome in their home DVD libraries.

Time Life Entertainment’s new Hee Haw Collection is yet another wonderful piece of television history.  It is a collection that both the series’ original fans and those within this generation looking to escape the monotony of television’s current offerings will equally appreciate.  That is evident in the set’s collective episodes and bonus material and the actual material presented within each.  The material is the kind of thing that is almost unheard of today.  Simply put it is material that the entire family can and should enjoy together.  The overall look and sound of the vintage footage rounds the whole thing out, making every bit of the footage and each of the episodes in question completely worth the watch and in turn the set in whole yet another welcome addition to any classic TV fan’s home DVD library.  The Hee Haw Collection will be available in stores and online Tuesday, September 8th.
