Add me to the list of people who would definitely purchase season sets of Hill Street Blues but has no interest in buying NYPD Blue. I loved the former show, but can take or leave the latter.
Hill Street Blues was a favorite of mine as well, never watched the NYPD show. Wished HSB would be coming out soon, guess I'll have to keep waiting like the rest of the fans!
St. Elsewhere would be nice to have, but wasn't the entire show merely a daydream, anyway?
I would buy St. Elsewhere in a heartbeat - even if it was just a daydream
If you stop and think about it, if "St. Elsewhere" is all a dream, then so too by extension is "Cheers" and "Frasier" since there was a crossover episode with "Cheers" at one point.
St. Elsewhere was a world that existed in the mind of an autistic child. I'm not sure if it is a "daydream".
Point taken. I simply used the word "daydream" because I'd heard that word used numerous times over the years to describe the final episode (i.e. "autistic child's daydream").
Seems to me that these shows could be fairly successful on DVD, as they haven't been done to death in syndication repeats -- therefore, they haven't been overexposed (as has NYPD Blue, MTM and a few others). I recall that PBS ran St. Elsewhere reruns about 10 years ago, but I don't know if it's been on anywhere else since. I have a faint memory of HSB showing up in the early days of TV Land but don't remember seeing it in years.
Anyway, two exceptional, groundbreaking dramas. I'd be anxious to see them again if for not other reason than to see how well they hold up.
Count me in as another who'd get St. Elsewhere in a hearbeat.
Please, give me Hill, Renko and the co on DVD. Please, please, please!
I'm with most of you guys, don't really care for NYPD Blue that much.
Oh my God, Daniel! That's the best thing I've read in a long time! Thanks for the link!!!
That's a fun article, and the crossover site it links to is even more fun. Here's a great quote:
I would buy St. Elsewhere and Hill Street Blues! I love the shows from the eighties (and seventies) and here in Holland they have Twin Peaks 1 (ok, that's the nineties), Starsky and hutch 1 and Little House on the Prairie 1. I don't have Little House yet, but I am glad they start putting those old series on DVD.
Are you buying R2 editions Robin or R1 editions of the shows?
Another vote to get St. Elsewhere and Hill Street on DVD.
IMHO : Two of the 10 greatest shows ever on television.
Arent they both MTM shows? The studio cant even release all of Mary Tyler Moore but I sure would like these, especially St. Elsewhere, finer than ER ever was.
I would definitely buy St. Elsewhere on DVD. I agree with Mikel, it was a better show than ER, in my opinion.
