    How about The People's Choice ? I read somewhere that TVLand acquired the broadcast rights to Peoples Choice and Love That Bob, but they don't run either show. Anyway , I'd rather have them on DVD Anyone know for sure who owns them and if they are licensable ? .

    Yes, your reasoning is probably right about the missing episode being a typo. The epiosde listing contained in the announcement from tvshowsondvd.com does indeed list all 30 episodes.

    Went to order the set this morning from Amazon...

    "Temporarily out of stock"

    Looks like the usual TGG delays apply.

    I wish they wouldn't announce release dates for their shows until they know they can deliver them on that date.

    I noticed today that the Amazon Editorial review for My Mother the Car on the product page now lists all 30 episodes. Looks like everything will be ok episode-wise. The price has also dropped, so that is good news, too.

    Once again, more completely bogus information. Nothing could be further from the truth. 39 episodes were pulled out of the Bachelor Father due to music clearance issues. Fire had nothing to do with anything.

    Why would TV Land license shows they wouldn't run? That makes no sense whatsoever.

    Everything is licensable if you go to the rights holder. Not sure who that would be on these but since they were both McCadden Productions, perhaps the George Burns estate.

    This! TV Bland barely knows what classic TV even is anymore! Other than the same Bonanza and Gunsmoke repeats, there's little classic TV anymore on the network.

    They abandoned classic TV years ago so they could jump on the reality TV and original programming bandwagon. There is NOTHING classic about them anymore. I have fond memories of their launch when they ran complete orginal episodes of I Love Lucy with the little stick figures of Lucy and Desi that did the opening, bumpers, and closing of the show. Not the familiar "White Heart" opening and closing.

    Correct, it doesn't make any sense. I've been trying to track down the original post I read stating that TVLand had the shows , but I can't locate it. I was actually surprised when I read it . Then again , a lot of erroneous things are written on the internet. It doesn't matter to me me who "owns" or "has the rights" to those shows and I don't have anything against TVLand . I'd just like to see complete season by season releases for both programs and it doesn't matter to me who puts them out . Realistically , I don't expect to see either show released.

    I swear that a few "Bachelor Father" episodes were put back into the syndication package on Antenna TV. "The Richest Cat", "Kelly's Engagement", and "Kelly's Graduation" are just a few so far. The episodes from the 5th and final season with guest stars Frankie Laine and Patti Page are still out, but could be reinstated.

    Also there could be celebrity licensing issues from the Gisele McKenzie, Patti Page, and Frankie Laine estates, because they were all BF guest stars.

    Wow, good to know. I'll have to put it back on my DVR. I stopped recording them because I figured I had everything they were going to run. I think it was 118 or 119 that I got. So now there are more? Great.

    CBS got sued over using the Texaco Star Theatre theme song in a Family Ties episode without getting clearance.

    In todays sue-happy world most studios know better than to even attempt to sneak uncleared music past anyone. So its either delay it until it can be cleared at a reasonable price or use music replacements like Paramount did on a few releases.

    I ordered this title from Amazon. It is a series that I had heard a lot abut but never seen. I have now watched the first 12 episodes and I must say I am really enjoying it. However I am surprised that a series about reincarnation was made at that time . The theme song is wonderful. There are some similarities to Knight Rider with the way the cars communicate with their human contacts. Personally I prefer the episodes without the Captain. I thought though that the episode when the Captain pretended to be dying and he finally got the car would have been a good ending for his character. After that experience you would have thought that he would not have wanted the car at any price. But next episode it was back to business as usual. I hope that the company that put out this show might consider two other fantasy comedy series yet to appear on DVD - Nanny and the Professor and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. And My world and welcome to it would be great to have on DVD too.

    MMTC came from MGM. The above 2 shows are Fox.
