Dear Gradepoint,

When you said that you and Firstmagnitude decided to set up a Siskel and Ebert website, it didn’t take too long and here it is to always remember the greatest movie critic team of all time. This is were Siskel and Ebert fans can catch up on the "good old days."

Gradepoint, I tell you, you sure saved just about everything. How did you know that with all those tapes that one day you can set up this version of YouTube?

Thanks for uploading an episode from "Opening Soon...", and the premiere episode to boot! What a historical moment on TV, the start of an American institution.

Well, you’ll note that the copy I uploaded was a professional copy from the studio, which included promos in the beginning, and a 90 second review for local news at the end. The quality was better than firstmagnitude’s, though he is to be commended for recording these shows way back when, something I didn’t do. Ultimately he has more shows than I do. Lastly, firstmagnitude has already told me to go ahead and post what I have, and if it is a duplicate copy of better quality, he’ll remove his...which it looks like he has done with the episode you are referring to.

I just discovered S&E a month or two ago and they are an absolute joy to look at and listen to. Thanks for keeping the legacy alive.

Hey, um, do you have anymore "At the Movies" episodes from the 1984-1985 season, as well as the 1988 Tribune/Buena Vista episodes of "Siskel & Ebert"?

Curious request, do you have the episode where they review Trail of the Pink Panther and The Dark Crystal? I’m dying to know if they gave thumbs up or down to it...and please be up...

All these requests are absolutely pointless. You better get accustomed to the fact that neither gradepoint nor firstmagnitude nor any other contributor here with a real life job on his/her hands will explicitly search for any particular review. I for one am happy that the videos come in at a regular pace now and hopefully will continue to do so.
Roger has his own website where most of his reviews are made accesible. Go look for yourself there first if you’re interested in his opinion first and foremost. Otherwise, and I’ll repeat myself now, you’ll all have to wait until that episode you were looking for finally makes it onto this website.

Hey moviebuff...I don’t have the Dark Crystal episode either, I’m sorry to say. I do remember the episode from my youth, because I loved the Dark Crystal. I can assure you they both gave it two thumbs up. I remember them marveling at the world created by Jim Henson. Still, too bad I don’t have it.

Hey Gradepoint I made an episode guide for the At the movies Tribune episodes, it’s not very complete (or even all that accurate), but it’s based off what I know. You can check it out at,

Hey Gradepoint, have you tried to contact the Paley Center for Media regarding the following two sneak previews episodes? (1980 and 1981, respectively)

Yes, I’m aware of these videos, and I did contact them about it. They agreed to make copies with the proviso that I obtained permission from the copyright holder (WTTW). Frustratingly, WTTW this time around said "no", so right now I’m trying to see if there is any other way I can get these. I’ve sent an email to my lawyer to see if he has any suggestions. Cross your fingers!!

Hey Gradepoint not to sound impatient here or anything, but I was wondering about that third episode of Sneak Previews you supposed to be uploading. I know it takes time, but you uploaded the worst of 1980 2 days after the best of 1980.

So I was wondering is something wrong with the episode or are you too busy?

Thanks.

Hey Gradepoint, I found some videos posted by WTTW of Roger being interviewed and the first episode of the 1978 sneak reviews season with Gene and Roger reviewing films like Death on the Nile and Boys From Brazil:

Jztzt, thanks for the heads up! I was able to upload the episode this morning. What a bonus. I’m in the process of uploading the Sneak Previews videos I got from the Museum of Broadcast Communications, a total of 8 in all. Then this video comes along. Awesome.

Dan, I’ll be doing them at a regular pace, but because firstmag and I are about to the end of our videos, I’m gonna space them out a little bit. I hope you can be patient, but I figure it’ll be about every 5-6 days or so.

Hey Gradepoint where are you gonna upload the next Sneak Previews?

I’m only asking, because I’m impatient and because it’s been over a week. I understand you have other things to attend to, but I was just wondering.

I tried sending you a private message, but I ran into some problems, so instead I did my usual post on your page.

Thanks.

Dan, at this time I’m unable to upload my final two episodes because I don’t actually have them yet. The Museum of Broadcast Communications screwed up my order, and two of the eight eps they sent were incorrect (one was an episode we already had, and the other was an episode of Masterpiece Theatre). I sent them an email over a month ago, and they said they look into it as soon as possible, but so far they’ve sent nothing. I’ve asked a couple times for a status update, but they never replied. I’m giving them a little more time, but I’ll have to call if I don’t get anywhere with email. Sorry for the delay, I really think they’re just forgetting about my order at the moment, but I’ll be persistent. I’ll keep everyone posted when I learn anything.

Well, for the record, MBC said they couldn’t locate the last two episodes. One was a special on cult movies, the other was a regular review ep, including the Road Warrior. Dammit I say!

Hey there - loving your site, gradepoint! I grew up on S&E from the early 80’s - in fact, I have most episodes from Dec 1985 thru Summer 2002 on VHS & in storage. Most are commercial free - let me know if you would be interested in obtaining them for your site. I am moving to Europe by year’s end & will not be able to take them with me. Respond back here or my personal e-mail davenc97@hotmail.com - that way, I would be able to enjoy them from wherever! Be well - david
