    Its perhaps the most famous TV series ever. Its popular worldwide, has no "music clearance problems" and the big screen version is due this year. Isn't it time we got the full four seasons of "Starsky and Hutch" on Region 1, 2, 3 and 4. It would sell everywhere. David Soul, Paul Michael Glaser and Antonio Fargas are great guys who still speak fondly of the show. Commentaries and interviews would be great. I see the pilot episode has been included on the 70's Cop Shows package. Surely this must be in the works. "Charlies Angels" is being released in the UK/USA on DVD next month and its shit next to this masterpiece. [​IMG]

    It IS in the works, to be released less than 30 days from the theatrical debut in March 2004 of the new remake movie.

    In the meantime, if you want to experience a taste of the original, try this on for size! [​IMG]

    1 episode is on the '70s Cop Shows' dvd. Series hasnt aged too well.

    Episode synopsis: Senior citizen couple plants a bomb in a trunk of their car that gets stolen. Check out Starsky running down a criminal in the beginning of the episode. Hilarious running style! Good for kitsch factor.

    Craig, I don't expect any word from this until 2-3 months before its release, which I don't expect to happen until whenever in 2004 the remake movie hits. Basically, I've dropped worrying about this one until January.

    And I NEVER expect supplements from Columbia. They have a drastically different TV-to-DVD model than, say, Fox.

    Good News for fans of this series:

    STARSKY & HUTCH:
    *************************************
    The Complete First Season

    Five-Disc DVD Collection Featuring All 22 Episodes
    Including the Original Pilot Episode -
    Approximately 20 Hours of Retro 70's Action Premiering on DVD
    March 2

    Culver City, CA (December 22, 2003) - Roaring onto small screens in their souped-up
    Ford Torino, STARSKY & HUTCH became one of the most popular and hippest buddy cop series
    ever. Timed for release with the much-anticipated new theatrical film adaptation of the classic TV series starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Snoop Dogg, Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment will debut STARSKY & HUTCH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON on an action-packed five-disc DVD set featuring all 22 classic cop show episodes including the original pilot
    episode, available for the first time together at the collectible price of $49.94 SRP.

    Fueled by full-throttle car chases, off-beat humor, hip 70s fashions, colorful characters and the infamous red hot rod, STARSKY & HUTCH brought the gritty realism
    and sheer excitement of the "Dirty Harry" movies to the small screen in 1975 on ABC, captivating audiences for four seasons. Starring ultra-cool Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul as a pair of unorthodox, streetwise detectives and executive produced by Emmy?

    Award-winning TV veteran Aaron Spelling, the show was nominated for a Golden Globe? Award for Best Dramatic TV series. STARSKY & HUTCH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON also features episodes with special guest appearances by Suzanne Somers and John Ritter.

    Though complete character personality opposites of each other, STARSKY & HUTCH
    developed an engaging camaraderie to become the ultimate crime-busting undercover partners
    and forged the way for buddy cop series such as "CHiPs" and "Simon & Simon" in the years to
    come. Set in the fictional city of Bay City, STARSKY & HUTCH tackled the toughest cases in
    town, full of pimps, muggers, dope pushers and big-time hoodlums, with the help of their jive-
    talking informant Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargas) - never afraid to bend the rules, but always catching the criminals.

    The IMDb lists both MGM and NBC as having some kind of rights to CHiPs. I don't remember the terminology, but I believe NBC is listed as the distributors. Maybe they'll give it to someone else like they did with Little House if they are the owners. Otherwise, has MGM done any TV on DVD?

    MGM has done or is doing Stargate SG-1, Outer Limits, Green Acres, Mr. Ed, Jeremiah, and Hello Kitty. Expect quite a bit more from them in the future. I'd say CHiPs is a possible contender, if nothing has happened with the rights.

    IMDB listing NBC as a "distributer" is probably just their way of saying that the show aired on NBC. Just like Fox "distributed" Married...with Children by airing it on the Fox Network, but the show was produced and owned by Columbia Tristar, so they are the source of the DVDs.
