    Still waiting for Warner Archive to release Please Don't Eat the Daisies, but, at this point, it looks kinda hopeless. Sigh.

    Any TV show that is (or was) produced by Fox or owned by Fox.
    Thanks a lot Mike Dunn, you selfish POS!!! :f :f :f
    To quote Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: "You're a crook... You're a cheat and a swindler...! That's what you are! How can you do a thing like this?! Build up a little boy's hopes, and then smash all his dreams to pieces?! You're an inhuman monster...!"

    You're starting to catch on, kemo sabe. Fox will not release anything unless they make mucho money off it with minimal cost to the bottom line. Example: we did get all of Married... with Children on DVD, but only the first few seasons had 'Love and Marriage' as their opening titles because Fox did not want to pay the musical rights.

    Case #2: Peyton Place. Fox considered it worthless, so optioned to Shout!, who sold quite a bit. Once Fox saw profit, they didn't want to share so demanded more for more seasons to where Shout! had to balk.

    Selfish little so-and-sos', ain't they?

    Married W/ Children is a Sony Columbia TV release. but yeah FOX is hardcore with their cash flow. That seems to be why SHOUT can't release the FINAL remaining RHODA season

    Yep, and the "little boy" in question is Shout and VCI.
