There wasn't much left when I went. They close Feb 26 I think it said. I think I'll go back then just to see what's still left.

The original Trilogy on VHS before the special edition with 0 additions other than the "Episode IV: A New Hope" scrolling words.

$2 at flee market. In boxes that are also inside Trilogy box and everything. I feel this is a victory and how I will watch Star Wars if I ever watch these tapes.

I used to have a set like that but I don't know where it went. Wasn't the original poster artwork. I think each one was a black box, and one had half of Vader's face on one said, one had a storm trooper, and one had yoda, iirc.

I should check and see if the blu-ray releases have the original versions. I know there was a dvd release that had special edition on one disc and original on the other. I might pick that up if blu-rays don't have non special edition.

Bluray has special edition with even more added stuff.

The OG can never be remastered because Lucas taped over the master copies of the original three. Thats why on the DVD version the side with the OG copy looks really bad due to letterbox and a cut in on the sides.

I'm not even talking about the changes here. How can someone who makes film for a living simply tape over master copies? That's the kind of thing that gets cataloged and saved. "Master copy of my career defining film? MEH WHATEVER WHO NEEDS IT"

Fuck you, George.

Jerry from Penny Arcade talked about it once and said something to the extent of "He created it. It isn't something that he fell in love with and discovered. The entire thing came from his mind. It did not awe him as a child or an adult, thus, he just sees it as a film."

Kurt RussellReunion II: The ReUnioning

:coookieesssss:

Hopefully it can match-up to the awesomeness of Kurt RussellReunion and the great Captain Ron singles match and the Tombstone 8-man tag match from the first one.

perhaps the whole, tape, CGI thing helps. most movies are shot on film, which can't be recorded over, and the important reels go in the studio archive forever or until it burns down, or at least they did because that is how we got a Wizard of Oz remaster. And there were 3 reels for everything! Technicolor, ooooh yeah. Fatty Plaidshirt Beardster probably sat on them in his ranch. If you don't label your tapes, bad things happen. :cookieshuh:

PS what does OG stand for? other than, you know, original gangsta

That's pretty much it. I've seen it used frequently as just a way to abbreviate the word "Original" though.

Hell it could be that the reels he had he destroyed or some shit. Overall message is Lucas somehow lost/ruined them and those are gone forever, ya know, unless some random warehouse in Europe has them just sitting there.

If you play a film it is damaged by the process everytime. For the cinema reels they usually copy copies of the master to preserve the integrity of the original.

I got 1-4 for $25 at Target a few weeks ago. I need to grab 5-7 just to finish it out. Fantastic show.

It's interesting how the tone of the show changed along with the age of its cast and viewers. Rewatching season one, I'm also surprised that it's not as cheesy and kiddish as I remember. The writing is still pretty solid, and the characters are all still pretty much the same except for the huge change in Topanga. She was a total hippie derpy bitch when she was 11. Completely forgot about that. A lot of my enjoyment of this show may stem from nostalgia, but on its own I think it's still a decently crafted sitcom, with very likeable characters that are easy to relate to. They just don't really make shows aimed at teens quite like this anymore. They all have to rely on infidelity, accidental pregnancies, or shitty pop-star casts to get kids to pay attention.

I liked it when it was being incredibly silly and not giving a fuck, but like most sitcoms with a dedicated fanbase it ended up delving into melodrama way more than it should have.

Give seasons 6 and 7 a view then...they started to just get insane with everything. Eric and Shawn's brother moved in with a tall redhead, then shawn dated this black chick...Mick Foley showed up and refereed a random wrestling match in the middle of the apartment for no reason. Eric stalked people.

Once they went to college that fucking show got CRAZY. It was awesome. With some drama added in because ya know, why not?

yeah I realize that reads weird to add in the things get weird, I just remember she comes into the show, eric gets an apartment with shawn's brother and then wacky-ness ensues. Including a weird/funny Scream/horror movie parody that ends with a dramatic look at ones self. :cookieshmm:

Actually, Shawn started dating Angela back in high school. She was kind of a really flat character. Like, they never did anything with her besides "she's Shawn's girlfriend and has problems with commitment." ONCE, and I mean, ONCE, they had her say something funny (something about how she needs to get more black friends after none of the other characters got a racial joke she made), but in general she just sort of sucks.

I've seen every episode multiple times; I watched it kind of religiously when I was in elementary/middle school. Just saying, I know which episodes I preferred and which I didn't.

yeah, I remember those. It has been a long time since I've watched every episode...but I think a chunk of us on this board (me, you, blame) all watched the show religiously back when it was on.

I never had an issue with Angela or Rachel. I thought they were good additions to the cast. Otherwise it gets boring if the ONLY melodrama is coming from Cory and Topanga. Angela wasn't a very comedic character, but I feel like she was a HUGE catalyst in Shawn's development and maturity. On top of that, adding Jack and Rachel gives Eric's character something to do while Cory Topanga and Shawn were off doing their own thing. As the stories got more involved than just "Cory needs a new water gun for the water war" they kind of needed the additions to balance things out.

But anyway, I think the show still holds up. The kind of corny kid show early seasons, then the melodramatic later seasons, all while maintaining a pretty solid comic side. The show never had a bad season. As far as consistency goes, it probably remains my favorite show. I find it REALLY easy to get attached to those characters, and I'd be lying if I said I never tear up a bit watching it. Especially that fucking series finale. :cry:
