    TVGuide gets the money, but, as Wezzo mentioned, it's a good way for them to gauge audience, so please continue to use them if you'd like to support us (indirectly).

    We tried to cover them all, but we really relied on fans to let us know that they were coming out. Stuff like that, the repackaging of sets, skips the usual "marketing/PR" push, so it was harder for us to keep track of.

    No, we never had a donation button. Some people would be fine donating money, but I think we'd get a lot of heat for having a donation button on a website owned by a large corporation. I really worry about a lot of the niche websites. Advertising dollars are going to the large social media...

    I honestly can't remember how many times TV Guide was bought and sold since we joined them. There was a time when Rovi (the company formerly known as Macrovision) owned us, as well as a brief period when Lionsgate owned the company. And the wonderful part of it is that the users really didn't...

    Well, the sale of the site happened back in 2007, so it was around longer being owned by someone else than it had been when I owned it. wish I had gotten "Jump the Shark" money for it!

    When you're owned by another party, the decision-making process doesn't always involve you.

    You guys are making me tear up (honestly). One thing about selling something, anything really, is that you lose control of it. We've had tons of suggestions of what should or could be done with the site, but it's out of my/our hands. Maybe something will change in the future, but I doubt it...

    I was beaten to the news here! It's true - the site is gone. Sorry, folks... that's just the reality of the situation. Had I been able to say something earlier, I would have, but things were still up in the air. As to WHAT we'll be posting to Twitter/FB, it's not going to be as often as we did...

    WKRP...Complete Series Coming Soon! (See Post #109)

    Claude, we managed to get a complete list of the songs cleared for China Beach from Time Life before the set was released: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/China-Beach-Complete-Collection/18122 As for the disclaimer on the back of the box; I know CBS uses this on a TON of their releases, even...

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    WKRP, yes, because only the first season (out of 4), was ever released, so there's demand there. Quantum Leap would likely fail because the whole thing has been released already, so the only people you're going to sell to are the hardcore fans that weren't happy with the first release, which...

    Hades froze over......Wonder Years!

    There's an interesting dynamic at play when it comes to the music-laden shows being released by third parties, and it's something that drastically affects the licensing of music... When a major studio looks to clear music for a release, they look to license the song worldwide, in perpetuity...

    WHV Announcement: Tom & Jerry Golden Collection Volume Two (Blu-ray) (DVD)

    I can confirm that MHuf is who she says she is. I notified her of this thread, asking her if the information was correct.

    Well, the site was never down, browsers were just tossing up warning messages.

    We were hacked earlier today. The problem was fixed, but Google hasn't removed the warning yet. Very frustrating! The best part - I'm on vacation, and it's already been pretty bad, and now this. Arrrrgh!

    Fugitive comes to DVD in a 33 disc set on Nov. 1st 2011

    Someone in the thread emailed me through the site and thought I left the thread because people offended me, so I thought I should pop back on here and post again to clear it up. I wasn't offended by anything that was posted in the thread at all. I left because there's nothing more I can...
