    To me, this is one of the greatest insults in the entire TV on DVD world to not have this complete show out. Fox obviously does not understand tv history enough to release this landmark show in its entirety. Hopefully Shout Factory will rescue it,

    What I don't get at this point is why the studios are not re-evaluating the market, and looking for a model that would work

    for complete series releases. Obviously the market is not willing to pay $40 or so for each season, so it's time to figure

    something else out. Half season sets were a stupid idea, fans are supposed to collect a series like Love Boat on half season

    sets over a ten year period? The attention span of the market isn't that long. Do they think the DVD will be forever the

    format? The window is closing. If the companies are going to sell physical sets in the next few years, they need to

    get some complete box sets into the marketplace soon, or it's going to be over, not a big enough market is going to be

    left to care what they do at that point. What's the alternative, release nothing? Doesn't seem like a business can exist

    by selling nothing. If they can't sell sets for $40 a season, is the only alternative to leave it in the vault?

    I would gladly double-dip on the first two seasons in order to get a 'complete series' release.

    Same here. I want more of this show on DVD. Not interested in any streaming/downloading formats.


    Maybe we'll see a MOD release soon.

    There was a lot of Fox material coming from Shout! but it seems to have ground to a halt.


    This needs to be, and deserves, a complete set. St. Elsewhere, too. Those two shows should have a constitutional right to be on DVD in their entirety.
