I'd like to see the following be released to DVD (or Blu-Ray if possible)
*East Side/West Side
*The Eleventh Hour
*Love On A Rooftop
*My World, And Welcome To It
*My Friend Tony
The Trials of O'Brien is owned by MGM (which owns the Filmways catalog acquired as a a result of buying Orion Pictures), which means that Fox would be handling the DVD set if they decided to release it on DVD.
Would you rather her costume looks like this and gets the show a lot of dissing:
Trust me, the costume looks just as good as it is now. Even the original Flash TV show of the early 90's had a darker costume:
MGM isn't really doing DVD releases anymore-everything's been farmed out to Kino Lorber and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. And most of the care's being lavished on newer movies like Skyfall, The Hobbit and the new Carrie when they come out on Blu-Ray.
From the 1960's:
For The People
The New People
From the 1970's:
The Lost Islands
From the 1980's:
From the 1990's:
I just saw the opening credits on YouTube (11:25 PM local Toronto time) and while the Paramount logo is true to the eras the film's set in, the Warner logo isn't-it has the 2007 WB shield with the 'A Time Warner Company' byline when it should have the 1969 'W7' (Warner Bros.-Seven Arts) logo...
I believe that said older people do this because they caught a glimpse of said older TV show, and find that they can't stand it anymore compared to current ones, showing that even some older people are not engulfed by nostalgia.
I'm sorry to be blunt, but this show was a steaming pile,.and then some (although Season One showed some promise.)
I can think of better shows from the same period that could be on DVD, like East Side/West Side, Breaking Point, The Eleventh Hour, Coronet Blue and a few others.
As for why...
Not going to happen, especially as Lost In Space doesn't seem to be as beloved as Star Trek is to CBS Studios by Fox. Heck, the original Battlestar Galactica could have been remastered the same as Star Trek TOS was, but Universal didn't want to spend the money.
There have been some Broadway shows I'm aware of that were released to DVD:
Jesus Christ Superstar*
Great Performances: Macbeth
*These were the ones shown on PBS's Great Performances.
I wan to win one of these because I love Dolby Stereo sound, especially Dolby Atmos sound whenever I go to the big multiplex with the IMAX screen equipped with Dolby Atmos in downtown Toronto. I have a rig that needs a A/V unit and has needed for a while now, as well as the movies, video games...
Most likely, the 'other studios' wouldn't be able to get the music rights for this even if they were able to get the rights for them (and especially if said shows are going to have the same issues with high prices being charged for music rights.)
Please God, no. Let that series be done by MGM as a complete box set with all of the trimmings.
My choices for Criterion DVD's:
Stop Making Sense
Up The Down Staircase
The Killing of Sister George
The Emperor Jones
One Potato, Two Potato
Nothing But A Man
The Big T.N.T...
So that's where the writers at SCTV got the idea for the skit 'Danny Eubanks: Seminarian/Rookie Cop' (I'm referring to Lanigan's Rabbi)!
Universal might do this for Amy Prentiss and the others mentioned if they can start a version of Warner Archive, but the success of Warner's venture seems not...
