Anytime I've asked a question on their FB page or sent them an e-mail, I've always gotten a response back. They were quick last night with a reply where a friend and myself asked a question about the newly found Three Stooges short. I don't have a beef with Warner.

Also spotted on that same site the Best of Mama's Family Seasons 1 & 2, coming out on 9/10/2013, according to a search I did on Amazon.com...could this finally be happening? Maybe or maybe not, but thought you'd guys and gals that love the show like I do might want to know.

I wonder if Warner finally figured out the first season didn't sell well because the episodes weren't uncut.

Unless S1 winds up rereleased uncut, I couldn't really care less whether seasons 2 and up are released.

 

But, an uncut S1 means I'll buy whatever seasons they want to release.

Of course, I would love for this to be true but it does seem sketchy to me. I've never even heard of this WEA-Des Moines video and besides, WB owns the show. I'd like WB to release S2 uncut but if all they have are cut episodes I say release them--just so we can get onto the syndicated years which they DO own uncut for sure.

TVSOD is on the case...

The big news: it might not be WEA, but Time/Life releasing the two listed seasons.

I'm waiting to see first-hand accounts of the discs before I plunk down any cash on these.

Would there be many music clearance issues? The only one I recall is the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy episode in season two.

It looks like it's a subsidiary of Time-Life called Starvista Video, the same folks who will also be releasing some of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts in September as well...TVShowsonDVD.com has a further explanation of these releases in their post here...http://www.tvshowson...s-1-and-2/18515 and http://www.tvshowson...ity-Roast/18512

There's also another post I started last night that contains more comments and information on this possible release in September.

StarVista IS Time/Life.

 

Apparently, they're rebranding.

 

Their upcoming website even says so, and the Time Life website has the "StarVista" logo in the upper corner now.

Agree completely, although only the NBC episodes (Seasons 1 & 2) have the edit issue.  The runtime of the first-run syndicated episodes (Season 3-6) were three minutes shorter than the NBC episodes to allow the local stations that signed on more commercial time.  It would seem totally senseless to re-release Season 1 exactly as Warner did and which sold poorly because of the edits, so I'm choosing to be optimistic that they did a deal with John Hamilton for the unedited masters.

 

The TVShowsOnDVD.com story has four Amazon pre-order links to the new releases (Season 1, Best of Season1, Season 2 and Best of Season 2) but as of now, only the Season 2 link is working.

Well this is sounding more hopeful. I have no issues with 'double-dipping' on Season 1 to get the unedited episodes with the pompous Alistair Quince intros--as long as we get uncut Season 2 shows and finally get the ball rolling on the rest of the series.

I agree; we've been waiting quite long enough for this to be done right...! I do hope that the article was more than speculating when they suggested that a complete series set may be coming, too.

I honestly never thought I'd see the day this was even a possibility.  Holy cow.  Fingers and toes crossed for the best but keeping in mind this may not be the release we all really want.

:D

 

I just read that and came here to post the link to TVSOD.

 

Damn, that was a quick announcement. And after 7 years, it's about time, too.

 

So, maybe you would know... is the switch from T/L to StarVista heralding more releases, or is this just business as usual and this is just the other big release for the year after China Beach?
