Possible News From Amazon
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:44:37 PM »
Even though Amazon got some glum news about their finances.  This just came down today:

" announced licensing agreements with Twentieth Century Fox and PBS that allow the millions of Amazon Prime members to instantly stream a broad selection of popular movies and TV shows from their vast libraries. These deals will bring the total number of Prime instant videos to more than 12,000 movies and TV shows from partners such as CBS, FOX, PBS, NBCUniversal, Sony, Warner Bros., and many more."

This is leading me to believe this is what FCI needed to clear.  In a Ronald Reagan tone, "Fred Rogers Company....................
 OPEN That Vault."

Hopefully they can start opening the vaults get all the 1974-1976 shows. I would like to see the week of shows Mr. Allmine takes daniels clock to land of allmine 1336-1340. The storyline of Lady elaines wedding and start of MGR-TV with her obtaining a license for broadcast. These were from 1376-1390. Another good week of shows are when Paul and Pauline come back from the Planet Purple 1355-1359. You would think FCI/FRC would of continue to use last two seasons of pre-79s 1974 & 1975 alongside the newer theme episodes. Every pre-79 episode has rights issues which prevent them from being widely available.

I'd love to see whatever they might conjure up, but i hope they have at least 1445 on mind in the case of the 1975 episodes as well as possibly 1041, 1295, 1305, 1320, 1345, 1360 or 1377-1383.
I can't wait to hear what jazzy music John Costa will play over the closing credits of any of those episodes when they come up! :)

Key To Otherland is strangely the only 1975 episode they had (they're also missing the All In The Laundry opera, which doesn't make any sense, since Potato Bugs & Cows is available ???).

Also, as TVTropes pointed out, no 1969 and 1972 episodes are available either. The fact we're limited to 50 sounds a bit concerning, though.

I wonder if Amazon will release any more pre-79 episodes...
