    Yay go Gord [​IMG]

    Honestly I don't understand what their holdup is with releasing Brisco, I mean it's not like there can be any doubt that there would be poor sales.

    I didn't think of that [​IMG] I thought the show had a cult following, and that would help it sell well [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, "cult" is often interpreted as "small," which doesn't do a whole lot for studio execs wishing to get the most bang for their production buck. But "cult following" can also mean "more willing to buy than your average Joe," so that's a plus on our side. And you've got me on that list of folks ready, willing, and able to buy this the moment it comes out....

    P.S. Early 90's. I was lucky enough to be visiting the WB lot when the show was filming, though not lucky enough to have seen any actual filming in progress!

    Fantastic news Gord!! I think I might want this show as much as you do. [​IMG]

    IMO the problem this show had was that it was way before its time and people just didn't get it. Bruce has said himself that it was grouped with "The X-Files" and the shows just don't attract the same audience.

    Years ago I did screen captures from vhs tapes of this series for the BC website and I would love to own this on dvd.

    Wow! I sorta knew that this would eventually be released but the news seems kinda surreal anyway. [​IMG]

    I'll probably get these DVDs. I watched the show on/off back in the day...

    I'm still wondering what was up with that WEIRD glowing ALIEN orb...

    Gord, you're still the man. Thanks for keeping in WB's ear and reminding them of the fans. It'd be a crime if BC wasn't involved in the set.

    Great news! Being 15 when the show aired Friday nights with the X-Files, I must say that I was a big fan of both shows at the time.

    However, my memory is a bit fuzzy for the specifics. Can anyone tell me what story threads were resolved and which story threads were left unresolved in this series? Thanks.

    I can't see BC not being involved in this at all but it is one of the few things that he starred in that he wasn't somehow connected to outside of just being the star. It was really funny how many people were fans of his from this show that didn't know about his cult following. It was very interesting to get into a discussion with both sides of his fans.

    Depending on the price I know I will want to buy more than one copy to send to people who I know will love this show but have never seen it.

    This is awesome news!!!! Even though I probably won't buy it, this is the most exciting news i've heard in a while for a TV show coming to DVD. Bravo to Warner Bros for finally doing this. I'm sure this will be an awesome set. Man the people who have waited for this must be jumping out of their skin!
