Brice Beckham and The Haunted Hop

From Drama34:



Here's a post-Christmas video featuring Brice Beckham in this hilarious bit from Drama34. Brice has been part of Drama 34 since the beginning, playing a variety of characters and roles, and they've amassed quite a number of hysterical videos which you can see at their official site.

Drama 34 is also reponsible for "I Hate my 30's", which was telecast on VH1, where Brice plays "Corey".

My Amazon.com DVD Review Video

video

This is a video I wanted to upload to the Mr. Belvedere DVD Listing at Amazon.com. Unfortunately, I had already given a written review, and apparently, they only allow 1 review per person per set, so this video was ultimately rejected. But I didn't want it to go to waste, so I thought I'd upload it here instead.

Ok, this not really a REVIEW, but simply a reaction to the news that the DVD is coming out, with shout outs to SHOUT! Factory, Amazon.com and the fans.

The official listing to Mr. Belvedere is finally back on Amazon, and you can now pre-order! Pre-order early to take advantage of Amazon's early pre-order discount!

Official DVD Cover Package Design + Amazon News!



From TVShowsOnDVD!
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Mr-Belvedere-Seasons-1-2-Box-Art/11045

This is the official DVD Cover package design for the upcoming Season 1 and 2 set, on your way this March 17, 2009!

Incidentally, the Mr. Belvedere DVD page on Amazon.com, which has been there for the last couple of years accumulating at the very least 45 requests to have put it on DVD, has disappeared!

Hopefully, this is an indication that an official Mr. Belvedere on DVD release listing is being prepared.

Thanks to archive.org, they saved the original page on their site.

The Shout! Factory Mr. Belvedere Thread

This is the thread on Shout! Factory's forums where much of the discussion on Mr. Belvedere takes place.

Mr. Belvedere
http://www.shoutfactory.com/community/316/thread.aspx

The first set won't be out until March 17, 2009. I'm not sure when they're manufacturing the discs, but if you have concerns/suggestions about it, this is the best forum to put it.

Right now, the main concern of the fans is whether the episodes are original network episodes (uncut) or syndicated prints (cut). Personally, I always prefer the uncut. Not that "uncut" meant anything restricted, but simply the fact that you get everything. Only a fan would really understand.

I'm not sure what it means when they say "Not Sold In Stores". Does it mean it's a Walmart exclusive or is it simply an un-updated part of the page?

DVD News 1



I have it on good authority that the Mr. Belvedere DVDs will be issues in SEASONS, and that the first DVD will include both the first season (which has only 6 episodes) and second season.

Key members of the cast, which includes Ilene Graff, Rob Stone and Brice Beckham have already provided interviews for the DVD extras.

More info to come!

Mr. Belvedere on DVD! Official!

Mr. Belvedere is coming to DVD at last! Not a bootleg! Not pirated! This is official!

Shout! Factory has finally snagged the rights to do Mr. Belvedere on DVD. DVD producer for Shout!, Brian Ward posted on the Shout! message boards on December 8, 2008:

"Look for Mr. Belvedere sometime in the New Year."

All right! This is what all you Mr. Belvedere fans have been waiting for. Now even though this is simply an announcement that the DVD is indeed coming, no word yet has been given as to what form the DVD will take. Will it be "Best of" or by Season, will all 6 seasons be released, what bonus features will be there... there's no word yet on that.

But stay tuned!!
