It is SO FRUSTRATING dealing with Universal TV releases! They have such a great back catalog, but so much of their stuff is "one and done"Posted Image

I would love more QUINCY, HARDY BOYS/NANCY DREW, INCREDIBLE HULK, NIGHT GALLERY, etc.

Are the sales really that bad?! It seems to me some profit is better than none. And I'm sure people would continue to buy them over the years (i.e., there will always be a new generation discovering the Hardy Boys).

I would just like these great shows to be given the proper respect they're due (and I would like us, the fans, treated respectfully, too!)

Well, I would love to see more ``Quincy'' and ``Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew'' (isn't there a new ``Hardy Boys'' comedy planned with Ben Stiller?) and I do have some hope for ``Incredible Hulk'' since they *finally* knuckled under last year and released Season 1 instead of that stupid best of collection, which I refused to buy. Universal still makes a lot of us Posted Image and Posted Image at the same time!

Yeh, you spoke about a new generation of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew, now I haven't seen that as of yet, but I am in my late teens and I've discovered Quincy and I really want more of it released!

Were there music edits in the R2 boxset of the first and second season of Quincy, ME?

Did Quincy, ME reach a natural end or was it cancelled because of low ratings? The last episode of the eighth and final season "The Cutting Edge" was a pilot for a spin-off that never happened.

Richard, please join the "Quincy, M.E." fans over on Shout! Factory's community forum in letting them know that we would like to have the remaining seasons put out and unedited. They have a licensing agreement with Universal, though they haven't said either way whether the studio would be willing to license the series to them.

Shout! Factory Community - Universal properties of interest?

I'm "macphoen" over there, BTW.

Chris, haven't long added some comments to the thread on Shout! Factory's forum about unreleased or stalled Universal series on DVD.

One of my favourite Quincy, ME episodes was the first episode with Diana Muldaur guest starring as a scientist or doctor. It was about a race against time to find the source of an outbreak of a disease/illness at a football stadium where an American Football game was soon to take place.

Me too, I feel though a show like this with many words from the medical world, should have the subtitle option. Something which SF! doesn't include, but Uni does. :/

Was Quincy, ME cancelled at the end of the 1982-83 US TV season because of low ratings?

According to TVShows on DVD this has been announced for June.

I just hope that McCloud and MacMillan and Wife will also continue.

What outstanding news!! Some great shows in this season, especially the last couple, "Double Death" and "Requiem for the Living". "Passing" and "Matters of Life and Death" are also excellent shows.

To answer the cancellation question, the show had had middling ratings almost from the beginning, but they had taken a dip that last year. I read that it was a combination of that plus Klugman's contract ending after that seventh year and his not particularly pursuing the negotiations to continue.

Maybe the sleeping giant, Universal, is stirring...

I'm surprised that Universal is releasing this directly rather than licensing it to Shout! Factory or Arts Alliance America.

Likewise on the fact that this is direct from them, rather than licensed out.

If one or two other stalled titles follow on this ("Kojak", "McMillan And Wife" or please, please, "Dragnet"), then we'll see more than ample compensation for CBS/Paramount scaling back the rest of this year.

That is an astute and interesting observation, Bob. I just don't know what to make of it. But I'm glad they made the decision they did.

It's just strange to me that Universal would release this when you consider all of the licensing that they have done with Shout!, Arts Alliance and Timeless Media. For me, the situation with "Quincy" is a bit analogous to "Adam-12" and I thought that if this series were to get a revival on DVD, that it wouldn't come directly from Uni, but rather through one of their licensees, Shout! being the most obvious.
