Re: When Things Were Rotten

My copy arrived, but it's in the rental office right now. At least I have a 4 day weekend coming up, plenty of time to watch.

Re: When Things Were Rotten

Yeah. Also, Ron Rifkin is something else-- hard to believe this is the same guy who was in Alias.

Re: When Things Were Rotten

I just watched Those Wedding Bell Blues (Sheik Achmed yadda yadda yadda). The episode was directed my some guy named Marty Feldman, and Steve Landesberg as the Wizard was pretty funny.

Yeah, I love Steve Landesberg. This was before he started appearing on Barney Miller (if I remember correctly), so I wouldn't have known who he was. A few other familiar faces have popped up as well.

Another Barney Miller alum, Ron Glass is in the last episode. Barney Miller started in early 1975 and Landesberg was on at the end of S2 (as Deitrich).

Wow, 13 episodes go by awful fast when they're so much fun. Have to do a rewatch soon, though I wish I could play these damn things on the computer.

Re: When Things Were Rotten

^^ Can't your computer play DVDs? Mine can't, since the drive is broken, but most can.

I still have six episodes to go. I can't wait to see the two-parter. I remember it as being especially good.

^It's a manufactured-on-demand DVD, and apparently those aren't playable on computer drives and recorders for some reason.

^ And it said as much on the Amazon page, so it's some hella protection they put on there, to make a computer not even see the disc.

Still, it's just a matter of time before someone cracks it. It might be as simple as a new codec.

I'd love to get a screengrab to show how much Polic's sheriff looks like Tony Iommi.

Have you tried just taking a photo of the TV screen with your camera? It won't have resolution as good as a screencap, but I've found it works okay.

Here's an article announcing the DVD release. Polic can be seen at upper left in the picture accompanying.
