    Why isn't this show on DVD yet?

    While it wasn't a big ratings success it does have a big and loyal fanbase.

    Warner has put out so many TV Shows on DVD but I've never even heard a rumour about Brisco County, Jr. - it wouldn't even be that much work - it's only a single season after all.

    This was a big pet project of Bruce Campbell so he would probably be happy to do some commentaries for the set.

    Has anybody heard anything about a possible DVD release?

    Warner has put a bunch of shows out on TV, but mostly (entirely?) current hits. A single-season show from ten years ago is a riskier proposition.

    Supposedly, Columbia House was putting it out on VHS, but I don't know how well that did, if Warner was using that to gauge demand. Brisco is the sort of thing that's so far off the radar that it would probably take Bruce getting another TV series (one which does well) for Warner to consider dusting it off.

    It's also the sort of thing that Anchor Bay could just kick all sorts of butt with, but unfortunately Warner doesn't license their properties out much.

    Trust me, I'm working on Warner Bros to release it. Almost every time I talk to them I try and work it into the conversation. I would hope that it would sell something like B5. Not a mega hit, but nothing to ignore. With the show only lasting 1 year there's no fear from the fans that it may be dropped, and Bruce fans that haven't seen the show could make a blind purchase and know that they have the entire thing.

    BTW - Warner hasn't really released tons of TV product. Compared to their catalog, they are really sitting on some gems.

    Gord.. The Columibia House tapes still sell for reasonable bucks on eBay.. it they did a good job with this it would sell like gangbusters, add some outtakes, an interview with the cast, commentary...

    AND WHILE THEY'RE AT IT (It may not be a WARNER PROPERTY so it may not be feasable) get a 'same day' release with "Jack of All Trades", only a 22 epidoes 30 minute show, but was a lot of fun... )

    gawd.. now I got the theme stuck in my head ("In 1861, the Revolution had been won, and Uncle Sam's favorite son, had a job that needed done...")

    Here's another big Bruce fan who's eagerly awaiting this. When I met him in person a couple summers ago, this is one of the things I asked him about, and he knew of no plans at the time.

    I'd buy a Brisco Box set in a second. I really love(ed) this show and have been awaiting a DVD release for years.

    I'd definitely love to see this on DVD, I watched quite a few of the episodes on TV and enjoyed them thoroughly. Obviously, Bruce Campbell fans are a selling force...how many times have the Evil Dead films been released (and re-released, and re-released, and re-released...), again? [​IMG]

    I'd pick this up in a heartbeat, as the show was a lot of fun!

    Put my vote in for a JOAT set as well, which would be kick ass if combined with the Cleopatra show that it ran with in the "Action Pack" block (if that is in fact what they called it.)

    Gord, keep up the good work banging tha drum on these releases out of E-Town! And thanks for all the work your doing on Kids In The Hall!

    Cleopatra 2525 Season 1 is available in R2 UK. There is at least one US place renting it.

    Personally I'd go for Brisco and JOAT in a HEARTBEAT!

    I'd like to see some of the early Renaissance Pictures movies released. Columbia seems to just be sitting on Lunatics: A Love Story for instance. And the Darkman movies could all stand better releases.

    And Crimewave. Surely, there has got to be a market for a movie that is both early Sam Raimi and early Coen Brothers. Why is MGM (I think) sitting on this?

    Rick P, Can you list the episodes in the Second Box Set?


    Michael's R4 comparisons give the first box set a pretty bad rating. http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Reviews...ws.asp?ID=3720

    While the UK discs are DVD-9s they seem to suffer the same problems as the DVD-5 R4 discs.
