Here is mine: To Warner Home Video: I would like to suggest the re-release of the Oh God! Trilogy (1977-1984) in a 3-disc Blu-Ray combo pack, with special features for each movie. This year is the 35th anniversary of the release of Oh God!, and that is why the trilogy should be released on Blu-Ray. English subtitles should be included for all three movies and the special features. All three movies should be digitally restored and remastered in 1080p HD for Blu-Ray. For all three movies, the audio should be improved. All three movies should be in full-screen instead of widescreen, as they were on the DVD releases (2002 and 2005). The original 1970s/1980s Warner Brothers logo should be included at the beginning of the movies. Interactive menus and new scene selections should be included for all three movies. There are some others who would like to see the trilogy on Blu-Ray. Here is a list of special features: Oh God! Special Features: Audio Commentary (from 2002, with Carl Reiner, Teri Garr, and Larry Gelbart) Text Commentary (Jerry Landers' Trivia Track) Deleted Scenes (HD) Outtakes (HD) Oh God! Retrospective Documentary (All-New, HD) Trailers and TV Spots (HD) Cast/Crew Biographies and Filmographies Archival Interviews with George Burns and John Denver George Burns: 100 Years of Laughter (From Larry King Live) George Burns and John Denver at the Kennedy Center Achievement Awards George Burns and John Denver in Two of A Kind (1981) George Burns in John Denver’s Montana Christmas Skies (1991) George Burns: A Century of Laughter (1997, produced by Paul Harris and Sandy Oliveri, 102 minutes) Alice: Oh, George Burns! (1978, 25 Minutes) Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: George Burns (May 1978) Photo Galleries Production Notes Oh God! Script Oh God! Book II Special Features: Audio Commentary (2013, with Louanne Sirota, Josh Greenfeld, and David Birney) Text Commentary (Tracy's Trivia Track) Oh God! Book II Retrospective Documentary (All-New, HD) Deleted Scenes (HD) Outtakes (HD) 3 Additional Scenes (From Television Broadcasts) Trailers and TV Spots (HD) Cast and Crew Biographies/Filmographies Photo Galleries Production Notes Oh God! Book II Script Oh God! You Devil Special Features: Audio Commentary (2013, with Ted Wass and Andrew Bergman) Text Commentary (Harry Tophet's Trivia Track) Oh God! You Devil Retrospective Documentary (All-New, HD) Trailers (the 1984-quality original version, (http://xfinitytv.com...er-(HBO)/videos), the 2005 remastered version (http://www.imdb.com/...y/vi3343908889/), and a 1080p HD version) and TV Spots Deleted Scenes (HD) Outtakes (HD) Photo Galleries Cast and Crew Biographies/Filmographies Production Notes Oh God! You Devil Script Ted Wass In-Character Interview: Bobby Shelton Remembers (HD) Also, Growing Pains Seasons 3-7 should be released on DVD, and seasons 3-8 of Perfect Strangers should also be released on DVD.

Fullscreen? Why? They were shot to be matted to 1.85:1 for theatrical distribution.

imho if the movie was shot in widescreen that is the way it should be released.

Yes Fullscreen and special edition make no sense. Its like saying VHS with DTS 7.1 lossless audio.

Man, something about that OH GOD! post just seems off. All of that minutiae about the films--television appearances, deleted scenes, galleries, commentaries, original WB logos--and full screen?! :rolleyes: And, for the OH GOD! series? Not exactly the most critically revered nor fondly remembered films. If I'm wrong, I apologize to "classictvfan91", but it seems a little trollish to me.

If "the material is extremely slight, but at least it's benign" sparks WHV's interest, cool.

Well its all nice and all, but you do know you have to clear/license to put those specials onto the DVD, and clear the music performances that is performed on those specials as well? and also on featurette and commentaries, that is IF those participants agree to do it without finanical compensation?

While I'm sure Oh God and its subsequent spawn has its fanbase, to call it critically revered is stretching it like a rubber band! Citizen Kane is critically revered, Rules Of The Game is critically revered, Vertigo is critically revered, 8 1/2 is critically revered. Oh God is fondly remembered by a segment of the movie going audience.

Again, I agree with the others here in saying that this series, on the whole, is not "critically revered." That quibble aside, why are you requesting these films be released full-frame? :confused:

I think full-frame is better than wide-screen.
