  1. Nice one, Jonny! TCM screwed up the airing of both Margheriti PLANET movies a few months back when they aired them (They frequently messed up when I watched them unless it was my satellite). Hopefully these will be jitter free.

  3. haha, yeah! But I'm mostly interested in GREEN SLIME this time. Haven't seen it in years. Almost bought the Japanese disc, but heard it was a bit shorter than the US version.
