The rumor mill (actually, Chris Elliot) is saying that Shout may be giving us the complete Get A Life by the end of 2012 http://www.tvshowson...te-Series/16755 Of course, there's always the question of whether REM's Stand will remain as the theme song, but even if it doesn't, I'm okay with it being replaced as long as the episodes are otherwise unedited. I mean, Stand would be nice, but it was cut from the show last time it was aired on TV in 2000, when USA aired it at noon.

Just because it wasn't in recent syndicated cuts, doesn't automatically mean it won't be on the DVD. Police Squad had some of its original songs replaced by generic soundalikes, yet the DVD release put the original songs back in.
 To all fans of Mr. Belvedere who haven't purchased season 4 yet, please watch this video.

Actually, right after I posted here, I got a reply over at the Shout boards that, as far as anyone knows, Stand is intact. If that holds true until release date, this is going to be one great set. Even without Stand, it would still be a damn good set.

Yeah. I just don't pop up at the Shout boards too often anymore since they... uh... lack moderation. But in the case of something big like a Get A Life announcement, well, why not pop in to see if you can get some extra information? This is one of those shows I've wanted to see since the two Rhino discs came out, and we were teased with season sets years ago.

Very Excited for this if true. Of course, Elliot did suggest that Sony would be putting out the show a few years back and that when nowhere (There was speculation of possible legal issues involving David Mirkin at the time) However, Elliot seems a bit more sure this time, even indicating the time frame when he's going to be doing special features for the release (He did also say when he talked about a GAL release a few years ago that he had recorded commentaries. Maybe Sony wouldn't license the tracks he did already so he has to record new ones for a Shout release)
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

Definitely a must-have set for me.


I wonder if the episodes will have the laugh track-free option, as the Rhino DVDs did.


Enough is enough, Disney. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray.

This is great news! Get a Life was off ball show, but Chris Elliot was amazing on the show. I just hope this means that the George Carlin show in 1990s will also make it to dvd.

Surely hope so.  That canned laugh track was inserted into so many scenes, that it really takes away from the subtle comedy of the show.

Shout!, if you are listening, please give the option of turning off the laugh track!

Any show that has the ARK II (see Filmation shows from the 1970s) as Paperboy 2000...a huge loser as the main character...? That's among my favorite shows ever. Now, if they tell us the music is intact I'll pre-order/order. I just need to know. Otherwise, it's iffy....

Oh, this now just posted too bu Shout:


------------------------------

the show was originally mastered to video, not film, so there is little remastering to be done. We are using the original broadcast masters though.

-----------------------------


Good thing or bad? I have no idea. They confirmed it was complete and uncut in the blurb so hopefully it's all right.

It's as good as anyone could seriously expect. Using the broadcast masters means it'll look as good or maybe slightly better than it would have looked on TV back in the early 1990's.

Thanks for all the cut&paste work Russell! Hell, I'm going to preorder that with some other items I'm ordering this weekend! I don't buy bootlegs but I know this will look better than that bootleg I didn't buy. I wish it had the Chris Elliot Lettermen appearances that I didn't get with the bootleg I didn't buy. I just found out today my budget billing electric bill is going down by about $35 a month. woo hoo! I wonder what I'll be spending it on? lol

You're welcome! I'll keep posting any other updates until the official press release comes out ha ha. I don't think anyone would of begrudged you the bootleg you didn't buy, those Letterman clips would be a great addition but most likely a nightmare for Shout to include. Posted Image

I remember when they were airing Letterman reruns (show from way back in the beginning!) on some cable channel and Letterman's company made them stop. Such a disappointment. The clips I (don't) have are just Elliot's appearances and don't include much else. I'd love to see some of that stuff again, like the Fugitive stuff they did and a parody of This Old House, all still in the full shows. Dave should put out stuff himself, or whoever owns that. "More SCTV" :tu: Sure would love Shout! to do something about that lack of old Nick live actions shows as well. Salute Your Shorts, YCDTOTV, maybe release Mr. Wizard for consumers (not the obvious "for schools" versions on this official web site) and Mr. Beakman's World.
