Paramount deserves an award just for having all three entries in the 1950s category. Most studios can't claim even one release that would qualify for that category.

Too bad M*A*S*H isn't amongst the list of possible honorees...

That the M*A*S*H series is being released at regular intervals is nice, but these sets certainly are not award-worthy, Chris. No extras and bad art.

Piffle - consider yourselves covered in SHAME! How dare you! My fan-boy allegiance aside, the Doctor Who discs are stunning. They own every other british show in terms of extras and restoration work. To be snubbed like that only shows the depths of insanity present on that list. And while it doesn't quite fit the animated series category, I thought that the Land of the Lost set was helluva smooth - way better than 2 of the 3 in the category.

Tony, none of those titles were submitted for the awards. I was surprised to see the lack of Doctor Who as well. A title had to be submitted in order to be considered. Gord

Gord - I think your site should do an awards of its own annually. I think your site probably gets the most TV-DVD-related traffic out there, so shows like "Doctor Who" certainly wouldn't be snubbed.

I agree with the choices on the whole, but shouldn't there be a category for best overall TV DVD? Perhaps its more democratic going by decade, but it would be interesting to see how, Star Trek (seriously do any of the other 60s show have a shot in this category?) does against The Simpsons or Freaks and Geeks.

What about a best Canadian show category? Posted Image Not that I'm biased or anything, Gord.

Maybe next year the "Best British" category will be "Best International." I'll suggest it. Gord
