    That was a great review, he brought up a good point to the fans to buy all the sets
    so that sales don't drop to much when we get to the later Shemp and Joe Besser
    eras. I want all the Shemps on DVD.

    I personally enjoy Shemp just as much as Curly.  Joe was a bit annoying but since it would be stupid to skip him (and not have a complete set), I'll buy it at the end.

    I wonder how long it will take before we even get to the Shemp years?

  • It's great to see the exposure the new Sony DVD remastered set is getting.

    All the reviews are worth reading, but if I had to recommend which to read first I'd say the DvdTalk review is the most enjoyable.

    To updated the current Amazon standings for the set as of 11/11/2007, 2:15 PM EDT:

    Amazon.com Sales Rank: #85 in DVD (See Bestsellers in DVD)

    Popular in these categories: (What's this?)
    #1 in     DVD > Comedy > Parody & Spoof > Three Stooges
    #5 in     DVD > Comedy > Series & Sequels
    #12 in     DVD > Comedy > Television

    Not surprisingly, it's holding on to the #1 slot for Three Stooges videos.  ;)

    It's also doing very well in the Series & Sequels category trailing just behind 3 Seasons of the US "The Office" series and the "Bender's Big Score" Futurama collection.

    The set is also doing very respectable business in the Comedy Television category trailing behind extremely popular DVD series like the US "The Office", "Seinfeld" 8 & 9, some Futurama seasons, and one season of "Boston Legal (which I like to think of as Bill Shattner's channeling of the Stooges into the 21st Century)".   [pie]

    The only slightly troublesome volume above this Stooges set is season 8 of "Full House".  :(

    Added this to the list above. I gotta say - the menu's look a LOT better in this one. YMMV, though.

    Yeah, the menus look awesome. This sets looks like it'll be better than Volume 1. From the screenshots, it seems like all the shorts will look the best I've ever seen.

  • Anyone know the sales figures of Vol. 1, relative to Sony's other material?  Any word on a specific release schedule for the future?  We had 7 months between the first two, at this rate it would take some time to see Shemp, not to mention Besser.

  • The figure is around 12,500-13,000 units. Sony called Volume 1 sales "very good" for this genre.

  • The Collider.com review should be discounted for using colourised screenshots in their review of this set!

    And, talk about lazy (or, is it leery?) I'm not even going to register at their site to tell them what I think!
    A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?

    I was expecting a better review than that from DVDTalk. That review was really vague.

    After looking over the reviews of volume 1 and 2 on DVDTalk, which were both written by the same person, i would agree. That one was small is comparison.

  • Actually, it's the longest of the three articles that reviewer wrote.  And I don't think it's "vague" at all.  He details each short, and tells you what he does and doesn't like about them.  He obviously knows the Stooges (and loves them), so what's "vague" about it?

    A lot of us know what the shorts are about and we all know what shorts are good or bad. On these DVD reviews, we're expecting the reviewer to get into more detail about the video and audio quality. The reviewer here only had two sentences on it. He should have went more in-depth.

  • Well, I don't think that review is intended strictly for the readers of this forum, do you?  It's a general review for general audiences -- many of whom might not be familiar with the shorts. 

    As for the audio/visual quality, he states quite clearly that it's as good as the first two volumes -- which he detailed in the two earlier reviews (why repeat in detail what he's already detailed?) -- reviews, by the way, that everybody here seem to find okay.  So what's the beef?

    I don't know. I was just expecting a little more.

    You seem a little offended at what I said. I, in no way, intended to offend anyone. If the reviewer is happy with that kind of review and if "general audiences" are happy with it, then that's great. I, myself, am not that thrilled about it.

  • Nothing in my posts suggest I'm offended; not sure why you'd read them that way.
    I'm just trying to understand why you find the review lacking.  But you state you don't really know why, so there's my answer.

  • I see. Well, the reason I found it lacking was because I'm not a general audience. I'm a die-hard fan. So, I was expecting more that just a general overview of the video and audio quality.

  • Well, do you have a review I could read that has more detailed analysis of the video and audio?  Because what that guy wrote in his three reviews seemed to cover it pretty well:  he says they're close to pristine.  We know Sony hasn't screwed them up.  This is, after all, the third volume, and I haven't read anything from die-hard fans like you that says Sony  has screwed them up, so other than a problem with a specific short, which he doesn't mention, what more could he say?

    Those reviews are all I have. From the first two releases, I can say that the video and audio has never been better. You might be able to expect both the video and audio to be better as these releases go on ... technological improvements from the 30s to 40s to 50s etc.
