    Can't wait for this one! It's one of the all-time best, IMO, even though it was extremly short-lived. Triva Q: Anyone remember why ABC cancelled this one fast? (I know the answer [​IMG] )

    That's some lame box art for the DVD. Wish they'd stuck with the original VHS/Beta art.

    I don't think that's a contemporary photo of Leslie Nielsen. He looks several years older.

    Got a kick out of reading the press release, which mentions the inclusion of "commentary on selected episodes."

    Wonder which episodes, out of all >6

    To paraphrase a classic line from the show....

    "I would have bought this earlier, but the DVD wasn't out yet."

    Finally, one of my all-time favorites. Between this and Brisco County, this is a banner year for short-lived TV shows on DVD for me. [​IMG]

    If they would just announce "Key West", another, even-more-obscure, even more cancelled Fox show, I'd be happy as a clam.

    ...or the laserdisc art. I think it's OK -- they certainly could have done worse. However, I am surprised there is no mention of The Naked Gun on the cover. I would have expected to see "The series that launched the award-winning Naked Gun film franchise" -- or worse, "From the producers of Scary Movie 3 & 4" -- somewhere on the cover.

    I just hope they restored the music. On the VHS tapes, I believe there are a few music selections (including the episode where Frank Drebin is crooning on stage) that were changed.

    Awesome! I'm so on top of this.

    Too bad there's not an emoticon for me doing a still laugh while the rest of the scene moves on.

    How about poor ratings? Many people just didn't "get it". Until the movies(which were lame in comparison) took off a few years later, there was not a lot of interest in these.

    It's a shame, too, because these are 6 truly classic moments in tv comedy.

    I think it would have been difficult to keep up the writing for these shows for a full season.

    Because people actually had to 'watch the program to get it'. Not that people didn't "get it" (got good ratings), not because people complained that they "didn't get it" (they did get it and didn't complain), but because some dim-witted "SUIT" was scared that people would have to actually PAY ATTENTION and did a pre-emptive strike on the show.

    Morons.

    Awful cover, but I'd buy the shows even if they were wrapped in a paper bag.

    The extras sound terrific - I wonder whether the extremely-talkative Joe Dante will be supplying commentaries for his two episodes. And does anyone know whether the disc will include the "Guest Starring" intro with John Belushi, recorded but hurriedly replaced before broadcast after his premature death?

    It's believed to be lost or even destroyed, so I doubt it.
