    Nothing against Married...With Children,but why did Sony have to release another set,so quickly,when they could have released further seasons of the 20-30 thirty other shows they have,that are sitting in limbo?Is MWC selling that well?

    As a HUGE fan of the show, I honestly can't say I'm complaining! I do agree though that they should pick up the pace on some of their other series. I've got my fingers crossed that we'll see season 7 of "The Jeffersons" sometime soon.

    Great show but at this point I'm going to hold out for a complete series boxset (I only own S1 R2 - and they've only released up to S2 so far over here in the UK!).

    Another HUGE fan as well! This is the one show Sony has managed to stick with, although I still hate the bullshit replacement song in the opening and closing credits. I usually just skip right past it anyway.
    These No Ma'am episodes usually are pretty funny, looking forward to enjoying them again.

    If they keep releasing them, it seems like it must be. I'm a fan of the show but I'm sorta surprised too.

    I love the NO MA'AM episodes. [​IMG]

    I'm trying to remember at what point MWC officially went downhill in quality and never recovered. I'm thinking by the 9th season that had probably already happened. Like a lot of hit series, this one went on a bit too long. It was never going to be able to match the unbridled hilarity of the early years.

    I understand that people are curious as to why certain series are released regularly and other series seem to take forever to come out. So I'll ask the same question that I've asked many times. Has it occured to anyone that the series that are still getting regular releases just might also be the ones that are SELLING ? Is that really such a hard concept to grasp ?

    At this rate, we'll have the series finished by next year. Awesome news! One question I have is they say they're including the two specials (Best Of Bundy and My Favorite Married) that aired during season 9, will we ever get the specials not included with seasons 6&7 (Backstage with The Bundys and A Day In The Life)?

    Of course that's not a hard concept to grasp.But are we to believe that all those shows haven't sold well?That's a little too much,in my opinion.

    Perhaps they are releasing MWC, due to the success of Christina Applegate's current sitcom, "Samantha Who?". It seems Sony, nowadays, are releasing subsequent seasons of sitcoms, from which characters are currently undergoing projects. Square Pegs is another good example, considering Sarah Jessica Parker's success with The Sex and the City Movie. Hopefully, Sony will be one of the major companies leasing their shows to smaller companies.
