It does say 'NBC Universal' on the box.Paul Green @ Sep 3 2008, 05:14 PM wrote:Does the "Laredo" packaging indicate this is an official Universal release Bob?
Whats the theme tune like? It might have something to with who owns the rights to that. I know of other shows where the DVD distributor only paid to have the theme tune used once on every disc!Bob @ Sep 4 2008, 01:37 AM wrote: One minor irritation: They play the opening theme song and credits and then go to the menu. As it originally aired, they had a teaser, then the opening credits and then the rest of the show. On these releases they go from the teaser directly into the body of the show, without showing the opening credits again. Nothing's really missing, but it isn't the way the show was originally presented. I guess they thought they'd save space on the DVD by not repeating the opening theme and credits for each episode.
Well, it's kind of hard to describe what a theme song sounds like. LOL! In the opening credits they show a generic montage of clips and give the name of the show ('LAREDO') and then the names of the regulars (Neville Brand, Peter Brown, etc.). The episode title and the names of any "major" guest stars are shown after the teaser, at the beginning of the main part of the show.Dacked @ Sep 4 2008, 01:20 PM wrote:Whats the theme tune like?

I grabbed the first ep and looked at the beginning and, yes, it does do that!jed @ Dec 2 2008, 12:14 AM wrote: One thing I remembered, Bob, in at the start of the credits, a checkerboard pattern comes up which turns into the word Checkmate, the word comes at you, this can be seen on the episode on Youtube,but it's not on any of the DVD's I've looked at so far! Do Paul Clarke's include this?
