In2TV Second Month Episodes for Sitcoms; Bill Cosby's First Sitcom to DVD in August

It's time to change some episodes for In2TV! The way it works is that they'll have 10 total episodes available each month. Every month, 5 of the 10 will be replaced with new 5 new episodes--so make sure you watch the 10 episodes each month, because you never know which 5 episodes they will replace the following month. Here are the list of the 5 new episodes for each sitcom for the second month, which will be launching very soon on In2TV:

Note: Remember, five episodes from the previous month will remain, so that is how there will be ten episodes available each month. We don not know which five of each will remain, so it is up to you to watch them all.

Criteria for the episodes:
-- "Starchives" - Episodes featuring stars before they were stars, including Brad Pitt on Growing Pains, and Jay Leno on Alice
-- "Classic Creme de la Creme" - Showcase of the most memorable episodes of a given series
-- "StarFavs" - Stars' favorite episodes

And I'm sure the rest are randomly picked.


Remember these are just the sitcom episodes. The rest of the series for month two are: Adventures of Brisco County Jr., Babylon 5, Beetlejuice, Dark Justice, Eight is Enough, The F.B.I., Falcon Crest, Freakazoid, Freddy's Nightmares, The Fugitive, Histeria!, Kung Fu, La Femme Nikita, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Maverick, The New Adventures of Batman, Pinky and the Brain, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Sisters, Spenser: For Hire, V, Wonder Woman.
Currently, there are thirty classic series on In2TV. There will be hundreds more very soon. Some of the shows we can for sure expect sometime this year are: My Sister Sam, The Hogan Family, The Jamie Foxx Show (LOL TV); Bret Maverick, Freedom, Guns of Paradise, High Performance, Hunter, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, O'Hara, Pointman, Profiles from the Front Line, Pros & Cons, The Flash, Young Maverick (Rush TV); Flamingo Road, Our House, The Yellow Rose (Dramarama TV); Animaniacs, Taz-Mania, The Zeta Project (Toontopia TV); Crusade, Night Visions, Prey, Superboy, Time Trax, Wizards & Warriors (Heroes & Horrors TV). All of these will not join all at once of course, they will be brought in slowly, but all these are expected at some point during this year.

Features on In2TV's second month include "Karaoke" (sing along with Freakazoid!, Perfect Strangers, Maverick, & Growing Pains' themes); "Life On the Set" (all-new interviews with the cast of Growing Pains); "Betcha Didn't Know" (great facts on David Carradine of Kung Fu); "Where Are They Now?" (what are your fave In2TV stars up to now like Alan Thicke, Ron Palillo, Peta Wilson); "Retro Runway" ('80s Fashion); and "Starplay" (clips of stars before they were stars such as Lauren Holly on Spenser: For Hire, Debra Winger on Wonder Woman, Dick Clark on Pinky & the Brain, Harrison Ford on The F.B.I., and Brad Pitt on Freddy's Nightmares).

Before the mega hit The Cosby Show, Bill Cosby had a short-lived sitcom on NBC from 1968-71 titled The Bill Cosby Show. Shout! Factory will be releasing this series and they officially announced last Thursday that the first season will arrive August 22. The set was originally slated for July 11, at least according to Amazon.com, but we are proud to announce that August 22 will be the date. We will even see Mr. Cosby himself doing an interview for this set. Here is Shout! in their own words:
Many Bill Cosby fans don’t realize that the beloved Dr. Cliff Huxtable had an equally endearing predecessor, high school gym teacher Chet Kincaid. After winning two Emmy® awards for his groundbreaking co-starring role in the weekly television drama I Spy, Cosby tackled the sitcom with his 1969 self-monikered series, The Bill Cosby Show. Shout! Factory announces the DVD debut of The Bill Cosby Show: Season One as a four disc set, including all 26 fully-restored episodes and a brand new on-camera interview with the star himself. The DVD arrives in stores on August 22 for the suggested retail price of $39.98.
The Bill Cosby Show originally aired on NBC from 1969 to 1971. Cosby’s first situation comedy placed an emphasis on real-life situations that were enhanced by the comedian’s trademark sense of humor. Rather than depending on one-liners, the show’s humor resided in the often absurd developing story, as evidenced by the absence of a laugh track. The Bill Cosby Show: Season One DVD features the original music by the legendary Quincy Jones and guest appearances by Henry Fonda (On Golden Pond), Academy Award®-winner Lou Gossett Jr. (An Officer And A Gentleman), Cicely Tyson (Roots), Elsa Lanchester (Bride Of Frankenstein) and many others.
Chet Kincaid (Cosby) is a gym teacher and basketball coach at an urban high school in Los Angeles, an all-around good guy and an inspiration to his friends, family and students. Kincaid’s good heart gets him into tons of predicaments, such as losing a one-on-one basketball game to a student he considered too short to make the team, his accidental involvement in a domestic dispute when he answers a pay phone, and escorting a date in a borrowed garbage truck.

In other DVD news, UrbanWorks has delayed the second season DVD of A Different World (a spin-off of The Cosby Show) from May 30 to July 11. A little birdie tells me that the reason could be so it could be closer to the third season DVD release of The Cosby Show.
