I don't know about anyone else but I thought this was a good show back in the 80's. Anyone think it will ever come to DVD??

I don't see requests for this show too often, unfortunately, so I don't see much hope for its release. Its one of the very few sci-fi/fantasy TV shows that were designed for a largely female audience. I'd love to see it on DVD, as I watched it regularly as a kid. I can't think of a better time for its release than now, as Ron Perlman has found some well-deserved cinema success with Hellboy.

I'm really surprised this hasn't shown up yet. Most cult show do really well on DVD. Does anyone know who owns the rights??

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

I believe Republic Pictures produced the show. I know they released several episodes on VHS and LD in the early 90's on their own label. I believe most of Republic's properties are now handled by Lion's Gate/Artisan.

This is a show that Anchor Bay would serve well on DVD, if they were to get the rights.
