      Thanks. Just went there when I saw your comment and noticed in the comments that 2 hours ago the uploader said he is looking at the tape to see if he can salvage more of that episode. He said it also has their “second review” of Star Wars from December 1977.

          He posted that he’s trying to salvage what he can from the tape so I expect him to eventually post what he has of the Star Wars review. That’s too big a scoop for him to ignore. It looks like he’s only posted that Saturday Night Fever video in the last three years so he should have time to work on that transfer. He’s never posted any other Siskel and Ebert content at all.

          He also has said now the beginning of the tape has a review of Close Encounters, which makes sense since December 1977 was its wide release. But he said the tape is cut off at the beginning. He says the Star Wars review is distorted in parts, but he is getting the video cleaned up and will post the whole episode.

    The YouTube user ’70s & ’80s VHS Flashback has now posted the original S&E Close Encounters of the Third Kind review:
