It just keeps getting worse. It's bad enough when you commit to owning a complete tv series on dvd, and the studio pulls the rug out from under you by cancelling that show,(The Larry Sanders show, Mad About you) but Warner Brothers has really pulled a doozy this time around. These television favorites discs are going to be the new indicator of a first season set even being released. Problem is simple. THEY WON'T SELL. Nobody wants a handful of episodes, if they are even remotely interested in a show, they would most likely buy the season 1 set. I'm a huge fan of Alice, and if I want a release of the first season I first have to buy the television favorites disc, so WB can decide if the sales are strong enough for a season release. This is pathetic. I used to like Warner Brothers. There is only one company I can trust, and that is Anchor Bay. Their track record is near flawless, and they would never try and pull crap like WB. I tell everyone who will listen, do not buy the Television Favorites discs, this will just encourage them to continue this absurd practice. At all costs, boycott bad decisions of big studios.
