Within the past two months we have gotten over a dozen new tv shows coming to dvd. With rumors of more to come. This leads me to the question....Did Dave Lambert, Gord Lacey or other members of this forum just become studio heads???
All I can say is keep'em coming.

Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Keep 'em coming and that means Home Improvement and NewsRadio. Now that it seems that those two studios (Disney and Columbia/TriStar) are committing themselves to releasing TV shows (and some from the 90s) on DVD, these are the two I'd really most like to see right now. Others like ER and Seinfeld, I would love too, but I know there's a demand and if possible, they'll eventually come.

In any event, Dave, make Home Improvement and NewsRadio happen, man! Posted Image Posted Image

Dave, one word:

Homicide
"Old theatres are irreplaceable. They could never be duplicated at today's costs - but more importantly, their spirit could not be duplicated because they remind us of a day when going to the show was a more glorious and escapist experience. I think a town's old theatres are the sanctuary of...

Dudes, you got it all wrong. If I was in charge, we'd be getting Jason of Star Command first! Posted Image

Neither Gord nor I got promotions lately. But Gord's site is doing VERY well, and why not? TV-on-DVD is HUGE.

I think the success of the pioneer shows on DVD are what has broken the dam here. If it wasn't for the success of Twilight Zone and Star Trek: TOS on DVD, then X-Files wouldn't have come along in their box sets. X-Files begat a bunch of others, of course. Other early TV-DVD successes like Stargate SG-1, South Park, Sex in the City, The Sopranos, Kindred: The Embraced, and The Prisoner all led to the avalanche of stuff we are seeing today.

Note the high level of Sci-Fi in that group. Fans of that genre are truly future visionists. Posted Image


No, the kudos go to each one of YOU who support the idea of TV-on-DVD. Good job to all of you! :applause:


P.S.: I'll mention here that Gord has pretty much taken the week off this week. I'm doing a few things to the database, and he's supported it a bit yesterday when time was free, by adding cover shots and the news item for Mad About You (did you read that...it's hilarious!). But Gord did that in-between moving into a new apartment last weekend, and catching a flight to NYC last night for the wedding of a friend this coming weekend. BTW, that friend is Jason Rosenfeld, who you all know for working to get out the MSCL set! So everyone give their best to Jason! In the meantime, if things look slack at the site for a while, that's why...but I'll be adding new releases, even if things like news items and review postings have to wait until Gord's return. In fact, Gord's got 5-6 reviews of mine to post when he returns! :P)

How about The Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby, after all it was created by Kenneth Johnson of V fame

I think depending on how well the Hulk movie does next year this might happen !!!

Oscar, that Hulk thing is among the items I mentioned to my Universal contact the last time I sent him a note. He has not commented on that, though. Not yet, anyway...no telling if he will. Like I said elsewhere, I think I've pissed him off with too much contact, too quickly. Posted Image

David

at least you gave it a shot, Universal & Marvel know they are sitting on a goldmine with this. There is already so much out there. Too bad Bill Bixby is not around anymore or he would have recorded at least an interview and at best audio commentary for the tv series. Oh one can always hope
