Long time lurker and another repeating question
- Hello all,
My name is Aaron and I remember SP on ch. 5 in NYC. I was around 7
I have all the Centuar releases. 21 vols. I need the rest of the of
the show! I know this is an old question. Who has copies 106-195 to
buy. Any at all. I'm glad I bought my original copies from Centaur
before they folded.
I've watched all 21 vols. for the 4th time over the past 2 yrs.
I need to see more this is frustrating.
Sorry if I am asking the same question without doing a search.
- Hi, Aaron!
I saw your posting on the SP list, and wanted to drop
you a quick line. You and I have about the opposite
situation, and I was hoping perhaps I could propose a
trade of sorts. I only came to STRANGE PARADISE
fairly recently, but have been actively amassing a
library of episodes as best I can. Where you're
looking for the later episodes, I've been desparately
trying to locate anyone with the actual Centaur tapes
(rather than the pirated copies generally floating
around). The reason I'm looking for Centaur's
releases is that I'm archiving all the episodes to
DVD, and want to have the best quality source material
possible for the transfers. I don't have nearly all
of the post-105 episodes yet, but I have a source who
has most of them taped from Canadian television, and
he is sending them to me on a regular basis. He says
that he is currently missing episodes 136 - 160 (as
well as the 3 episodes believed to be completely
missing from the syndication package), but otherwise,
he is supplying me with all the existing episodes up
to the end of the series. Currently, he has sent me
everything thru episode 117, and I'm expecting another
batch of about 35 episodes from him any day now.
Anyway, as I said, I was hoping I might propose a
trade to you. I'll be glad to go ahead and make DVDs
of everything I have between episode 106 and 117 for
you, and will supply you with copies of all the
further material I get in the future, if you would be
willing to help me out. What I'd like to do, if you
are agreeable, is to borrow your Centaur tapes a
couple at a time to transfer to DVD and upgrade my
existing set. I would also make you a DVD copy of each
tape you supplied, free of charge, so that you would
have an archived copy of it as well. In fact, if you
would be more comfortable, I could also mail you a DVD
copy of my current (admittedly 2nd or 3rd generation
copies) back-up of each Centaur volume BEFORE you
loaned each tape to me, that way you would never be
without some sort of permanent copy of each episode in
the set. Then, when I finished transfering each tape
and returned the cassette and its accompanying disc to
you, you could send my old disc back, and we'd both be
safe in our dealings. I realize this offer is
somewhat out of the blue, coming from a complete
stranger, but I was hoping we could help each other
out. I still have my eyes open for a source on the 25
episodes my friend is missing, and am optimistic that
we'll be able to complete the set with out too much
trouble. If you'd like to become a part of this,
please do drop me a line at your convenience.
Regardless of whether or not you are interested, I
appreciate your time. Thanks so much, and I really
hope to hear from you!
All the best,
