Yes, I simply copied it directly...I changed nothing...that frozen shot of
the logo just before the opening of Gold Machine is someone else's work.
Someone needs to compare some of the quick blured shots showing street
scenes to establish Lockwood and Gloria starting their night on the town
with the shots used in In Search Of Midas. I think some of them are the same.
Many times shows will be completed using bits and pieces from shows shot
later on. This is especially true with the music. There may have been a
few episodes in the can before Dominic Frontiere wrote the series music
(adding to the music from the pilot.)
I have an example of this from Space:1999. The second episode of the
second season has a two second sequence that was actually shot for
something like the sixth episode (containing content specific to the sixth
episode.) And I am talking production order here. They were able to use
the first part of the shot as background filler for the earlier second episode.
I suspect that this was done in Gold Machine.
I ended up doing a straight vcr to vcr dub. The hard disk recorder, for
some reason, could not read parts of the signal off the video tape.
As a side note, the machine refuses to read macrovision dvds...it displays
a message saying the content is copywrite protected.
I will be doing more dubs this weekend, so those of you who haven't gotten
them yet...just hang on. My schedule limits my dubbing time to the weekends.
