    They need to do a side-by-side box set of all three movies and call it “12 Inches of Shaft!”

    Some of the Warner Archive Blu-rays are pressed discs others are MOD, nothing on the box indicates which you are getting. The same goes for the Warner Archive DVDs. Some are pressed and others are MOD.

    I have the Warner Archive set of the series. They are "movies" like the Colombo made-for-TV movies. They aren't anywhere as fun as any of the films and very low budget; however, if you go in understanding what they are they are fun to watch.

    Are you sure about that re: the Blu-rays? I've not heard this and have only ever received pressed discs from them.

    How can you tell with the Blu-rays if they're pressed or not? When you turn them over they look the same. At least with a DVD-R it has that purple tinge on the disc.

    Which Warner Archive DVDs are pressed discs?

    Relatively, but I wouldn't bet the farm on my memory. I remember being really surprised when A Christmas Story Live! was pressed.

    They are black discs if they are burned. I know What I Like About You Season 4 is a pressed Warner Archive DVD. I just bought that one. Seasons 2 and 3 were burned. I know I have received other pressed Archive DVDs since I always am surprised when one is pressed when it shows up.

    You mean like solid black bottom?

    EDIT: Not to "press" the issue (tee-hee) but I compared my NIGHT PULSE BD-R with a Scream Factory disc and I guess there was a slight difference in colour, but you'd have to be an eagle eye to spot it. I'm not seeing the black, though.

    Not solid black but noticeable black.

    Left BD-R (commercially bought), right pressed Blu-ray.
