    So what do you guys think of these new episodes? Which ones have you purchased?

    I too keep my collection of Sesame Street episodes (about 65+ now) on an external hard drive; when an hour of video takes up half a gigabyte, I need all the room a fan can get! :insatiable:

    So far, all I could afford was half the package--so I spent 13 dollars on all the Season 1 shows, Telly's debut, and Barkley's renaming. The rest will have to wait for a month, but it'll be totally worth the time!

    Yeah. I wonder about downloading the whole thing, because that would cost a lot on iTunes, unless I can get it for rental or something like that. I'll have to take a look at the free one when I get a chance to download that.

    I've read at Tough Pigs that while the first episode is presented uncut, the cleaning film is removed from episode 123. Odd that they could get it cleared for one episode (where it was cut on the DVD releases) yet not on another.

    I bought all the episodes as a whole yesterday (much cheaper that way-- $17.99 as opposed to 23.88) plus I had a $15 iTunes gift card I hadn't used yet.

    Very impressed by the episodes, and I hope they keep it up. Would be glad to help with complete sketch listings if I knew where and how to post such a thing,

    Well, I'm not too worried about the first episode since I saw that on You Tube pretty recently. I wouldn't mind seeing 'Bob's Deaf Friend' though. Seems like he has quite a few connections with deaf people. {Ex: Linda, Samara, Ed (from another 80s episode)}

    Bluh. Kinda rude - I can't use iTunes on my computer. I get a stability warning if I even try to install it. Let's hope they offer them on Amazon soon.

    I had received an email about this from my internet service, so I checked into it to see if I could finally see some shows that are not on the DVDs! I once had Itunes, but never used it. so when I saw that I had to install it again to be able to see these, I downloaded it and went ahead and attempted to install it. well, it took 15 minutes for the program to begin the install, but then would not finish. half way through, I got an error message that said "a program required for this install to complete could not be run. contact your pacakage vendor". I assume that would be Itunes. but how do you contact them? anyway, I am unable to see these now. I don't know what the legalities are once you have them on your hard drive (i.e. can they be burned to DVD), but if it is allowed and if anyone were able to do that, I would be willing to buy select shows from someone. does anyone even know if Itunes or Sesame Workshop is allowing transfers from hard drive to DVD?

    i hope they add more episodes, i bought a few from itunes and I have the old school volume 2. Does anyone know if they will ever make a volume 3? I wonder why they don't release a few episodes per season on dvd? I mean they sort of did that with "old school" but more episodes would have been nice. And what about the eighties? Once you start watching classic sesame street a few episodes floating around won't do.

    Hopefully, this'll spark more classic Sesame DVDs, like the Old School sets, but with more episodes, rather than season premires and selected sketches. Or more Old School. Hopefully both.

    For some reason the Old School CDs follow a similar pattern

    Okay, what do we have to do to get 'em to crank out Vol. 2?

    Hello, it's my first post here!
    I'm in the UK and have been trying to download these episodes all week. They're not available in the UK store, and so far trying to get a US itunes account has proved far too difficult for someone as bad with computers as me! Does anyone know of a way around this? I'm DESPERATE to own them!!

    Wow! I've only just seen this thread. This looks great!

    I hope they release this on DVD, or at least on UK iTunes :(

    Is there any way that shows can be copied on DVD? I don't have iTunes and I would love to see them for myself rather than just clips on youtube.

    It's making me CRAZY that no one is cranking out any more Sesame 70s episodes! I bet the power$ that be weren't even BORN when these were big! All they care about is $$$$! :mad:

    Naw... if they did, they'd probably sell more. There's clearly a market for classic Sesame Street material, and if it's digital downloads, they get that pesky problem of DVD releasing and having to deal with Brick and Mortar retailer that would rather just sell Blu-Ray copies of movies that just came out on DVD.

    It's a very obvious problem. Sesame Street has well over 4000 episodes, at least 1315 of them from the 70's, and most of them reruns with new footage. Not to mention they must have to pay some royalties for celebrity appearances. It's not so much a matter of money as a matter of hassle. I'm sure SW would find a better way to get some of these out, but at the time being this was a testing the waters release.
