|Tequila and Bonetti |
The Complete Series
All 12 Episodes
4 Disc Set
The source is from Big Dish (9 foot dish) recordings, back when they only had Big Dishes, long before DirecTv or Dish network came around . With a big dish you could get the feed the networks would send of the episode to the syndication network for the time zone, which was hours before it would aired later that night, which is what these episodes are from except one it's the original airing for that night, so that's why the episodes have UNBELEIVABLE QUALITY and there's no voiceover show promos during the ending credits, like the one that aired later in the evening, the quality was much better than the recordings I recorded of this series, all were 1st generation.
Life is not easy for Bonetti, due to his remorse about the girl he shot and the strange habits of Californians whom he does not understand. His neighbors include a Puerto Rican psychic (Liz Torres), who hears Tequila's thoughts but initially believes she is hearing spirits. Bonetti develops a grudging respect for the people around him as well as for Tequila, who despite his faults is an excellent police dog. The dog is portrayed as having human-level intelligence and a street-wise, sassy attitude.

For the best quality, 3 episodes were put on each disc, so each disc needed 2:21:00 to be recorded on to, so I recorded all of the discs at the flexible speed, setting the record speed at 2:22:00 speed, making it a 4 discs set. By being recorded at the flexible speed, it is a little bit slower then the 2-hour speed (SP), that way the complete disc is used, for the time allotted, for the best possible quality, NO compression loss with UNBELEIVABLE QUALITY, unlike other sellers who would have to use a lower speed, thereby NOT using 1/3 or more of the disc. All the episodes are in the broadcast order, like all of my other series.The discs comes in DVD paper window sleeves, the discs come without labels or artwork, because labels on discs can cause the disc to play improperly over time, all of my DVDs are in the DVD-R, NTSC format (USA) region free, so please make sure, your player will play them.
All discs have interactive menus, making it easy to watch a certain episode.
When I dub my video recordings to DVD, I make sure it's the best possible playback, that includes if necessary, adjusting the tape guide roller to improve the tracking, after all these are my master recordings. First the recording is recorded to the DVD hard-drive at the XP (1-hour) speed, then the commercials are edited out perfectly, then record onto DVD at the flexible speed, thereby using the complete disc, unlike most seller who have to use a certain speed, I�ve never recorded anything at a certain speed, all recordings are recorded at the flexible speed. Unlike other sellers, if a master disc develops a bad spot, which has happen a few times to me, I can always make a new master, because I have the original recordings for all of my items for sale. I remember buying from a seller on a different site, and 1 disc had a bad spot, that seller sent me 2 replacements, each time the replacement sent had the exact same bad spot in the exact place, that seller didn't have the original recording to make a new one, something to think about when buying rare old TV recordings.
Don't be fooled, by other seller's, claiming theirs are uncut or that they have excellent quality, I've bought some series from other sellers, claiming very good quality, only to find out they had terrible quality, I couldn't believe they had the nerve to sell such poor quality. My prices are high, because they are rare, 1st generation recordings, not many people, had a VCR back in the late 70's. I bought my first VCR in 1979, costing me over $1200, that's 1979 dollars, that is why, all of my listings, are the original network broadcast and 1st generation. When the first MTS stereo VCR recorder came on the market in 1985, I bought one immediately, which is why my series are in stereo too, I doubt other sellers can say that, Like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Ask any and all questions up front, once you buy it, that's it. Copying is too easy, these days. I offer no refunds, but will happily replace any faulty disc.
Because the US post office raised their rates for international post on 1/27/2013, you'll need to email me for the charge, because it was an outrageous increase, almost by a 100% increase and the postal service continues to raise their int'l. rates every year about 10%, which now the postal service just raised there int'l. rates again during May 2015 by .22 cents for within the USA and .75 cents for int;l post, which is why I just raised the s/h charge by .25 cents to cover the cost of the increase. Also Paypal in May 2014 raised the fees on int'l. payments because of the increase in the currency rate exchange, so if there is a defective disc(s) (INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ONLY ON REPLACEMENT DISC(S) NEEDING TO BE REPLACE) you will also have to pay the shipping and Paypal fee charge for any replacement disc(s) that will need to be sent because just for the first level on the postage only for int'l post, the cost is more than $7.00 for the first 2 ounces sent on a package, which you can only send 2 disc at the first int'l. level, with DVDs being sent in a large envelope which is consider a package, that's because the envelope is rigid with the DVDs in them and a large envelope can not be rigid. Money order or Paypal only.
