The Month in Home Media highlights short-lived or rare TV shows released on DVD or Blu-ray in the United States during the previous month.
After two quiet months, things picked up in March. A forgotten adventure drama, Spencer’s Pilots (CBS, 1976), came out on DVD. So did both seasons of Here’s Boomer (NBC, 1980-1982). Plus, the first of four Man from Atlantis pilot telefilms came out on Blu-ray. Finally, there were four new releases from Alpha Video, including episodes of one season wonder My Hero (NBC, 1952-1953)
Highlight of the Month: Spencer’s Pilots
CBS Home Entertainment quietly, and surprisingly, released this short-lived adventure drama on DVD last month. It starred Christopher Stone, Todd Susman, Gene Evans, Margaret Impert, and Britt Leach. It ran for two months on CBS during the 1976-1977 season. Guest stars include Bill Bixby, Bob Crane, Barbara Bel Geddes, Pernell Roberts, Clyde Kusatsu, and Shelley Fabares.
