Dick Van Dyke on Blu? That would be fantastic! I grew up with this show. And recently I saw some of those old shows and they are hysterically funny. The Carl Reiner written shows are among some of the funniest shows that have ever been.

Awesome news. I love hearing about old shows on Blu-Ray and can't wait to see it and for more old TV on Blu. My personal: I Love Lucy (where a big deal is made that it was shot on film and not the inappropriate for Blu Kinescope ) and Get Smart.

I guess that means The Twilight Zone sales were good as Image is ready to dive right in with their next key classic TV property. Interesting to have the series released all at once. That seems to be the way to do it these days (see also Friends) as the season by season thing grows tiresome after we all went through it once with DVD. This is a terrific show!!

This news is surprising but delightful. The Dick Van Dyke Show is my favorite of its era. Having seen the TZ transfers, I can't wait to see what Image can do with this.

THE funniest sitcom of the entire 60's. (And I never warmed to Lucy, since it's funnier to have physical slapstick happen to a smart character than to a chronic bumbler)
They clearly want to follow their "other" house trademark besides TZ--just finished getting that one, and transferred well to HD, but that was on film--do they have a third?

This is great news even though I'm not really a fan of this show. The more classic TV series on Blu the better. As forestlite said I'd be glad to see The Andy Griffith Show on Blu.

If you can't wait until the Blu-rays come out, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Get Smart, Honeymooners, and many other oldies are available on MeTV. MeTV is a digital non-HD sub-channel available normally over the air only in some market areas. In the Los Angeles market, MeTV is channel 56.3 (broadcast antenna on Mt. Wilson), and not available on Time Warner Cable. I can't vouch for Dish, DirecTV, etc.

The Dick Van Dyke Show is, without a doubt, one of my very favorite classic sitcoms of all time. I already own that 25-DVD big box mentioned by the article. I'll be glad to upgrade, probably during a sale or after a moderate price drop, assuming a solid technical presentation and the inclusion of all the supplements from the DVD version. (A few new extras wouldn't hurt either.) Image has a fine reputation in all those areas, so I'm not really worried.

This is certainly an unexpected choice to follow up the wildly popular Twilight Zone Blu-rays. It should be interesting to see how a 50-year-old sitcom sells on Blu-ray.

That's fantastic, hats off to Image! I love the show but would buy it anyway just to support what they are doing. I would love to have Alfred Hitchcock Presents. As for Lucy, that's Paramount.....and Honeymooners 39 classic I believe is Fox (though MPI has the lost episodes but I don't think those could look any better, could they?). I wish a major studio would take a bold step like Image, which obviously is proving successful!

Funny I was thinking, why does the series have to be high def? How about Dark Shadows the entire series on Blu-ray? The 1138 episodes would take up 20 discs, instead of 138 some DVD's. True the show is NTSC, but just speaking as far as space, it would be great to choose from 50 episodes on one disc.

I'd love to get this but I hope that disc count is just a place-holder. At 15 discs that would be 10.46 episodes per disc --- without counting extras!

To echo the comments above ME TV is good. I watch it here in Vancouver canada. It has me hooked on old shows before my time like The Rifleman.

Great news. Not sure I'll spring for this, but as others have indicated it bodes well for other releases. Might as well add my "wants": The Outer Limits. I've got the TZ set (amazing!). An OL set would totally rock. And since The Fugitive set was recalled / cancelled, it's an opportunity to release that on blu. That and OL have some great "noir" cinematography.

This is fantastic news! Regarding the artwork featured above, I think that's Image's DVD box, not the blu-ray. The article states this will be a 15 disc set, so I'm guessing Image has not yet posted the art for the blu.

"mastered in High Definition" - - - Mastered from what??? - video, film, negatives???
This is a VERY important fact, especially if I'm gonna be dropping $150+

I think it's great that they are beginning to remaster old TV shows for HDTVs. Standard Definition looks cheap and fugly on an HDTV. I've seen some HD remastered episodes of South Park, Family Guy, and the Office (before they filmed in HD) and they all look great. Sure it does require slight cropping on the top and bottom, but if you pan & scan it correctly, no one will miss that miniscule amount of cropped footage.

The only downside is that doing this will require A LOT of time and money. What they should do is remaster these shows and sell them to Netflix or Hulu or somewhere where we can stream. I don't mind buying a few movies in their physical copy, but buying a lot of TV shows takes up space and costs a lot of money.

Here's hoping we get lossless audio, otherwise I'll wait for the 80% off sale. I have no tolerance for Dolby Digital at DVD bitrates, at this point.

I'm also looking forward to The Honeymooners and I Love Lucy. *fingers crossed*
