Even though I have a region free player, this isn't a title that justifies the expenditure to be played on one machine only and in a compromised PAL format.    For the moment, I can get by with one full season and the "Best Of" set.

I agree.  I hope that CBS either restarts it, or Shout picks it up.

I think the problem being is that Bilko had a larger UK following than US. It's had people such as my friends Mick Clews and Steve Everitt pushing for it for ages; they're still trying to convince the BBC to put it back on as a matter of fact. I'm excited for them that they're finally getting this.

Given the unfortunately dismal sales of The Phil Silvers Show here, It's highly unlikely that Shout! will pick up the rights to the show. It's a certainty that CBS is done with the show domestically.  I'm more than happy to buy this set (which right now is averaging less than US$27.00 per season- shipping included). It'll never see the light of day here.

I still hold out hope that CBS will be releasing/continuing with some of their classic offerings, such as Bilko, as it is an awesome show and there are just 3 seasons left to go before it is completed on DVD. We can only wait, hope and see.

Is this something that you have any particular knowledge about.
