R. Kay, I see you're from New York. Did you happen to catch Ron hosting 70's Saturday Night on WB11 a few months ago? I was hoping then that he'd mention a possible season 1 dvd release.

I'd consider buying "Kotter" in season sets, but I'm not touching any "best of" discs...

Another "Quote of the year" for me as well. I just can't see buying a "best of" set but I guess it serves a purpose for some that might not want an entire season's set of something or as a sampler.

Nope. Didnt even know about it. I would assume if Pallilo wasnt getting any money for the dvd release, I wouldnt think he'd mention it ..

What if that's the only way we can get a season set of Welcome Back,Kotter?I have a feeling that Warner Bros. are releasing the "best of" disc to test the waters,for the potential of a season set.If the "best of" doesn't sell,to their expectations,then,unfortunately,we won't be getting a season set.

I'll buy the best of disc, if its priced low enough as I want season sets, and this may be a way to test the market like Sony did with Married...with Children. So if its priced low enough, I'm in.

I'll buy if it comes out just to have something to enjoy in the mean time.
I don't have a problem with best ofs discs as long as they release season sets too.
And sometime I just want to watch a single episode and don't want to go through the trouble of looking for a good episode to pop in. I think of it as having a museum copy and a public library copy. Posted Image
We already know that it's a test, but geez they must know it'll sell! It's kotter not some no name show.
Disney please put Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends on DVD!!!!


I will NEVER buy ANY politically corrected/edited DVD!

Has anyone heard if the remaining seasons of Welcome Back Kotter will be released. There is a rumour of a a movie staring Ice Cube.

I love 1970s and 1980s tv, it help define a generation. It is too bad that this another stalled season.

I'd also get more releases if available. Since it's a WB release, it's possible we'll see more. I had to check my S1 set because I thought Kotter was a Sony release.

Yep Sony is notorious for dropping series. So we all assume if the series is stalled, it has to be a Sony series. LOL

I'd love to get the rest of this series as well, unfortunately WB is not much better than Sony with completing their series.

No they aren't. I heard the first season did poor numbers, so it would probably be a small miracle if WB released the second season.
One more tv classic in limbo.

Of course there won't be most releases. It's a Warner-owned sitcom that doesn't start with the letter F.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

if they ever release TV shows through the archive series, MOD, then maybe we will be able to order the rest of the seasons. Unfortunately, they have not released any TV series through the archive series yet.

The bottom line is sales. If the first season didn't sell then unfortunately there's your answer.

  No, it's a sitcom that probably didn't sell well enough to warrant another season set.

Look at the facts. It seems that until Night Court season 2 came out after an amount of time at which the whole series could have been released, every Warner-owned sitcom except Friends, Full House, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has failed to meet the magic number for continuing with more seasons. Yes, it's a coincidence, and it may not have any bearing on sales (at least not as much as those self-fulfilling prophets who refuse to buy season 1 because they believe more seasons won't come out), but it's still worth pointing out.
