DVD Tuesday: Wagon Train

The only release of note today is Wagon Train – The Complete First Season – Special Limited Edition from Timeless Media Group. Included are all 39 black and white episodes from the 1957-1958 season. A variety of episodes have been released in the past in both VHS and DVD and last November Timeless issued the 1963-1964 color season (the show’s seventh). Whether additional seasons will see the light of day remains to be seen.

    Note that NBC/Universal “can’t be bothered” with releasing “WAGON TRAIN” on DVD themselves, even though they own the series. One reason is because it’s in black and white [except, of course, for season seven (1963-’64)- the 26 90 minute color epsodes], and they’re really not interested in monochrome series of “early vintage” because they feel more recent shows in their library (i.e. anything after 1965 or so) will make the most profit for them {“Who the hell cares about watching black and white shows nobody gives a damn about? People WANT ‘THE OFFICE’, ‘HEROES’ and ‘HOUSE’ because that’s what they’re FAMILIAR with!!”}. Let’s hope that same “target audience” proves them wrong.
