The Night I Wanted To Live On The Continent More Than Usual.

That's continental Europe.
One of my all-time favourite TV shows - The Wild Wild West (do NOT get me started on that movie... then again, you could get a blogging out of it) - is coming to DVD this year, with season one getting put out first on Region 1. And I have a multiregion player; even if I don't ever manage to work out the proper way of connecting it so the images of R1 discs show up in colour it don't matter none in this case, because the first season was in glorious black and white (and I do mean glorious - some of those shows are Cindy Crawford beautiful. A few are Michael Crawford beautiful, but that's the way it goes).
But in France (where the show's always been very popular) seasons two, three and four already have release dates. With English-language tracks thank goodness. Happy birthday to me, hopefully. Another gap in my growing up filled in.
Oh yeah, and in case you're wondering, all but one of the episode titles began "The Night..." Even when most of the action took place in the daytime. That's American TV for you. :)

It will take that long for the releases to happen? Ouch.

As for the titles, that is quite a weird thing.
