New TV on DVD for April 13: 'Dallas,' 'Emergency!' and More

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 13th 2010 3:00PM
If you're a fan of classic television, then you're in luck this week, as some of the biggest hits of the 1970's are the subjects of new DVD releases this week. And at the top of that list is one of the greatest prime time hits of all time: 'Dallas.'

Of course, by the time 'Dallas: The Complete Thirteenth Season' finished up, it was actually the 1990's and we had already learned who shot J.R. and that whole "shower sequence dream vision" thingy was well in the rear view mirror, but no matter what date is listed in the credits, as long as it says 'Dallas' on the box, you know this set is worth it's weight in Texas Tea.

Also coming out of the classic 70's vault this week: 'Emergency!: Season Six.' For those of you too young to remember this series, 'Emergency!' was a lot like the recently canceled NBC show 'Trauma,' except popular. Strange but true.

Arnold Stang, voice of Top Cat, dead at 91

Arnold StangWhen I was a kid, I loved the cartoon Top Cat. I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the cool music or the fact it was set in New York City. I also really loved Top Cat's voice.

Arnold Stang, the voice of the clever feline, died earlier this week at the age of 91. Stang was in 75 gazillion TV shows and movies over the years (you'd know the face and/or the voice even if you couldn't place the name), including The Jonathan Winters Show, Broadside, Batman, Bonanza, The Red Skelton Show, December Bride, The Steve Allen Show, The Milton Berle Show, Emergency, and Mathnet.

He was also in several movies, including Hercules in New York, Dennis The Menace, and It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. He was also the original voice of Buzz Bee in Honey-Nut Cheerios commercials.

After the jump, an episode of Top Cat.

What is the Retro Television Network, and how do I get it?

RTN logoI don't get RTN (Retro Television Network) where I live. If you go to their web site and scroll down, you'll see that the network isn't in every state yet. But it's something I'd like to see on my local cable system.

RTN is a channel that shows a lot of old TV shows. It's sort of what TV Land used to be, a long time ago, before they started to get into reality shows, movies, and Extreme Makeover.

The channel is still at a time in their history where they have the freedom to not only air cult-yet-mainstream shows like the original Battlestar Galactica, The Incredible Hulk, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Leave It To Beaver, and Magnum, P.i., they're also airing such shows as Delvecchio (!), It Takes A Thief (!), Kate and Allie (!), the original 50s version of Mike Hammer (!), Run For Your Life (!), and The Bold Ones (!). As you can see, this is one eclectic network. They also have original programming such as talk shows, RTN Mystery Theater, and Offbeat Cinema. Robin Leach is going to host a show on the network, too.
