    Fame, the TV series

    As far as I can tell, S2 has never been released in a separate set. Fame S1, released by Sony in 2005, has been discontinued. Fox released a set combining S1 and S2 on Sept. 15, but that's the only one. That's according to Amazon.com and Wikipedia.

    Guest actors who became key characters in a series

    Most all of the examples being mentioned are people going from being recurring actors to regulars, mostly as a matter of contract terms or necessity to fill a gap. My intent with the original post was to think of a guest star who had such an impact in a guest role that the producers were...

    If I recall correctly, Maude was introduced to All in the Family specifically to spin her off.

    Actors Who Quit a Show/Appear and Disaappear

    That reminds me of the awful CGI the Sopranos used to superimpose archive clips of Nancy Marchand's head on a body double after the actress had died. It was creepy.

    Guest actors who became key characters in a series

    I got to thinking about this while going through the thread on actors/characters who vanished without trace from a TV series. This is the opposite. Let's talk about actors who appeared in a series initially as a one-shot guest appearance but were so memorable, they were eventually added as a key...

    Actors Who Quit a Show/Appear and Disaappear

    That practice has pretty much disappeared. Most times now, the writers at least try to resolve a character's departure with a spoken line in passing. But Boston Legal was notorious for having characters disappear with no explanation. I recall that in the second season, two new characters were...

    She also filmed a few scenes for the pilot of "Firefly" before Joss Whedon decided he didn't like her and replaced her with Morena Baccarin, reshooting that character's scenes.

    Larry Sanders: Season Two?

    It's not out of the question.

    Is "The Wonder Years" that much of a risk?

    You don't know how music clearances work, do you?

    Larry Sanders: Season Two?

    I do specifically remember that Shandling himself blocked further season-set releases of Larry Sanders. That's not to say that S1 sold well enough for Sony to want to continue. It may not have. But Shandling did say publicly that he had no interest in releasing season sets after S1.

    Is a show Public Domain?

    St. Elsewhere?

    I know what DVD 18s are. But you need to site a source on your other statement because as far as I know, they are not edited/altered.
