Tenemos a Pedro10 como amigo en la Wii y, para los que dicen que no sirve para nada, ahí va ésa: los Miis de tus amigos pueden campar a sus anchas por tu Wii. Pedro10 (es clavadito o no? :P ) fue el concursante número 3.

Por cierto, creo que fue Pedro10 el que nos envió al Mii de Chuck Norris: brutal. Hemos jugado unas cuantas partidas al Tv Show King, pero todavía no se ha atrevido a concursar.

    This review is from: The Dick Van Dyke Show – The Complete Series (DVD)

    If you’re looking for a super-sensational, tantalizingly-terrific, and spectacularly-massive DVD set containing some of the greatest comedy moments in TV history, then look no further than this colossal 25-Disc DVD set containing every last episode of “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, the multiple Emmy Award-winning CBS-TV comedy series which ran from 1961 to 1966.

    This Complete-Series mega DVD collection houses all five seasons of the very funny and perpetually-entertaining Van Dyke Show, encompassing 158 total episodes, all restored and remastered by Image Entertainment and Paul Brownstein Productions, with each episode exhibiting darn-near perfect video and audio quality. And every single episode is complete and unedited. Not a single second of any show has been cut out. Average running time per episode is a shade more than 25 minutes.

    All 158 shows have been bundled together here to form one gigantic and money-saving ‘Complete-Series’ collection. Each of the twenty-five discs gets its own individual “ThinPak” (slimline) plastic case. Each case has unique and nicely-designed cover art (featuring a different publicity still photograph on every one of the 25 cases). Additional photos grace the back cover of each case, as well as more Van Dyke Show pictures (and a complete “Scene Selections” list for each of that platter’s 6 or 7 episodes) on the inside of every case. (These plastic cases are the “clear” type, so you can read the “Scene” listing on the inside front covers right through the plastic.)

    The back of each of these slim cases provides quick at-your-fingertips info about each show on that disc — such as: Full episode titles; Film dates; Original CBS-TV air dates; Brief episode descriptions; Plus some crew credits (“Written by” and “Directed by” notations). The 158 episodes are arranged here by “Production” (or “Film Date”) order, instead of an “Air Date” chronology.*

    * = With one (very wise) exception being Episodes 157 and 158. “The Gunslinger” was actually the last (158th) Van Dyke episode to be filmed; with “The Last Chapter” being the final episode that was aired, in June 1966. So, for proper continuity sake, Image Entertainment has flipped the order of these two episodes on the last disc of Season #5 — with “The Last Chapter” being presented as the final show of the series.

    More Packaging Notes — The 25 individually-cased discs in this Mega-Set are placed side-by-side inside a large outer “slipcase” box.

    Image Entertainment distributed five separate season-by-season “Dick Van Dyke Show” DVD boxed sets in 2003 and 2004, with each of those five sets featuring a 5-Disc slipcase box. However, those individual seasonal slipcases from each of the previously-released Van Dyke seasons are NOT included in this Mega-Set.

    Many, many supplemental bonus features are also included on these twenty-five Digital Discs, including: Audio Commentary tracks for many episodes, along with cast interviews, original TV commercials, Emmy Award snippets, documentaries, featurettes, photo galleries, behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, Easter Eggs, trivia games, CBS-TV promos, and gobs of other little interesting extra tidbits besides! A 12-page booklet, packed with interesting info about the series, is also a part of this Dick Van Dyke Show bonanza too.

    There are even full-length TV-show bonuses included on selected discs, including a complete episode of “The Danny Thomas Show” (which has Van Dyke Show character “Buddy Sorrell” popping up).

    Other complete TV-show extras include the original “Pilot” episode for “The Dick Van Dyke Show” (called “Head Of The Family”); plus a full-length 46-minute CBS-TV documentary made in the mid-1990s (“The Dick Van Dyke Show Remembered”); and an absolutely-outstanding and ultra-fun-to-watch TV game show entitled “Stump The Stars” (aka: “Mike Stokey’s Pantomime Quiz”), which has several Van Dyke Show cast members playing a lively charades game. Great, great fun!

    If you want to know the full details regarding each and every little bonus extra you can expect to find on these 25 discs, you can seek out my extensive reviews for each of the separate Van Dyke Show boxed sets here at Amazon.com. If you type in “VAN DYKE SHOW SEASON” while searching under “DVDs” here at Amazon, you’ll get a convenient and handy search result that places links to all five of the Van Dyke seasonal sets on just one webpage for easy reference.

    Pull out any one of these 25 discs and you’ll have some great shows, including all of Rob Petrie’s inimitable physical comedy bits — not to mention Dick Van Dyke’s unsurpassed ability to act out a “one-way telephone conversation” (which always amazes me when I see him do this — and there are many such “telephone” moments during the series). Then, too, via this amazing boxed set, you’ll also get every one of Laura Petrie’s (Mary Tyler…

    This review is from: The Dick Van Dyke Show – The Complete Series (DVD)

    … what the Beatles were to pop music! Already available on DVD as separate seasons, this boxed set puts the entire 158 episodes under one roof. It’s no exaggeration to state that THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW came as close to perfection as situation comedies could be. Any way that you want to look at it, this show was state-of-the-art! The cast was brilliant without exception, from the Petrie family (Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Larry Mathews) to Rob’s co-workers (Morey Amsterdam, Rose Marie, Richard Deacon), their neighbors, and a who’s-who of guest stars (Don Rickles, Greg Morris, Jerry Van Dyke, etc.) who contributed to the humor without upstaging the regulars.

    Not to mention Carl Reiner, who not only was effective on-screen but very creative behind-the-scenes. He merely invented the show, for one. In fact, another ingredient that places the show on a pedestal is the quality of the writing. Amazingly, there is a consistency over the thirty-plus episodes (multiplied by five years) that makes me hard-pressed to think of even one subpar show in this series (“The Twizzle,” maybe?). Sure, some shows stand out: the walnut episode, Alan Brady’s wig disclosure by Laura, the “wrong baby” episode, and so on. Yet every show is a delight to watch again and again. The humor is genuinely witty and most of the topics are still relevant even today. In fact, I sometimes think that watching the way Rob and Laura realistically dealt with a wide range of human emotions (jealousy, etc.) and marital situations (misunderstandings, etc.) was probably an effective early form of marital counseling for many viewers.

    Yes, the show is of its time: you’ll find yourself dropped right in the center of the early-1960s, right on the brink of changing attitudes regarding gender, race, marriage, etc. Rob and Laura slept in separate beds? Yeah, right. Not to mention Laura wore the capri pants in the family. Yet the show’s overall vision elevated it to timeless status. The series’ style may be dated to the era in which it was created, but the substance remains relevant and laugh-at-loud funny even four decades after their original broadcasts. Other reviewers have remarked on all of the DVD extras, great video quality, etc. All of that is important, but the bottom line is the greatness of the show itself. It seems as if every t.v. show that ever existed is being reissued on DVD, moreso than anyone could possibly have time to watch. You’ll want to make time for THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW, though!

    If you’re looking for a spectacularly-massive DVD set featuring some of the greatest comedy moments in television history, search no further than “The Dick Van Dyke Show: The Complete Series”, a colossal 25-Disc DVD collection which contains all 158 episodes of the Emmy Award-winning 1961-1966 CBS-TV sitcom.

    This Complete-Series set, which was originally released on May 24, 2005, holds all five seasons of the perpetually-entertaining Van Dyke Show, with all episodes having been restored and remastered by Image Entertainment and Paul Brownstein Productions. Each episode exhibits excellent video and audio quality. And every single program is complete and unedited. The average running time is a shade more than 25 minutes per show.

    Each of the twenty-five single-sided discs gets its own individual slim plastic case. Each case has unique cover art, featuring a different publicity still photo on the front.

    The 25 discs in this Mega-Set are placed side-by-side inside a large outer “slipcase” box. Image Entertainment distributed five separate season-by-season “Dick Van Dyke Show” DVD boxed sets in 2003 and 2004, with each of those sets coming with a 5-Disc slipcase box. However, those separate seasonal slipcases are not included in this Mega-Set.

    Gobs of supplemental bonus features are also included on these twenty-five DVDs, including: Audio Commentary Tracks on several episodes (sporting the voices of Dick Van Dyke, Carl Reiner, Rose Marie, and others), along with cast interviews, vintage 1960s TV commercials, documentaries, featurettes, Emmy Award video clips, photo galleries, behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, trivia games, CBS-TV promos, some hidden Easter Eggs to seek out, and lots of other little interesting extra tidbits besides!

    There are even full-length TV-show bonuses included on selected discs, including a complete episode of “The Danny Thomas Show” (which has Morey Amsterdam popping up as his Van Dyke Show character, “Buddy Sorrell”).

    Other complete TV-show extras include the original Pilot episode for the Van Dyke series; plus a full-length 46-minute CBS-TV Van Dyke Show documentary made in the mid-1990s; and an absolutely-outstanding and ultra-fun-to-watch episode of a 1962 television game show entitled “Stump The Stars” (aka: “Mike Stokey’s Pantomime Quiz”), which has several Van Dyke Show cast members playing a lively charades game. Great, great fun!

    A nicely-constructed 12-page booklet, packed with interesting info about the series, is also a part of this Dick Van Dyke Show DVD-Video bonanza too. The booklet also includes several photos of the cast and crew (with some of the pictures being printed in color).

    Note Re. Bonus Features — Rest assured that every bonus item that can be found on the five individual DVD season sets can also be located within this “All Five Seasons” monster set as well. The discs in this mega-collection are identical to those found in the individual sets.

    Coming up next here at “Dick Van Dyke Central” is my Mega Episode List — i.e., a look at all 158 Van Dyke programs (plus the Pilot) that can be found at your digital fingertips within this gigantic 5-Season DVD collection.

    I’ve laid out this Program Guide in the same order in which the episodes are arranged on the 25 DVDs, which is a “Film Date” order (instead of the “Air Date” chronology). The original CBS-TV air dates have also been mentioned in my list below, plus I’ve added in some selected program descriptions, anecdotes, and funny dialogue for many of my favorite shows.

    If you begin to suffer from a slight case of “Van Dyke Show Overload” before you’re able to finish reading the following tome/guide, I can fully understand. In such a case, stop reading at once and then take two walnuts from Laura’s egg carton and wash them down with a glass of fresh air. You should feel better shortly. ~sheepish grin~

    ———————————————-

    “Head Of The Family” (Pilot Episode) — Starring Carl Reiner in the role of Rob Petrie. Featuring Barbara Britton as Laura, Morty Gunty as Buddy Sorrell, and Sylvia Miles as Sally Rogers.

    “Head Of The Family” was filmed in early December of 1958, but it didn’t get its one and only network television airing until more than a year-and-a-half later, when CBS aired it on Tuesday, July 19, 1960.
