Every time I read a post of the following nature, I cringe. Let's play a little Mad Libs: "How can (1) like (2) be released on DVD while (3) like (4) is languishing on the shelf?" 1=derogatory adjective 2=title of show poster dislikes 3=praising adjective 4=title of show poster likes not on DVD Why should you get upset about what DOES get released on DVD? For some shows there is nothing but hatred, somewhat psychopathic in nature at times. Other shows are sanctified out of proportion to their merits, people who attempt to criticize them treated like pariahs. I personally blame weak marketing and high price for the poor sales of The Mary Tyler Moore Show: season 1. Sitcoms are not like sci-fi; they do not have fans who would sell body parts for things related to it. But how badly did this set do, exactly. Is it the fault of any lesser show that does get released that MTM didn't do as well as it deserved to? Is a perennial favorite like MTM spoiled by the very existence of a superbomb like Pink Lady and Jeff, and its presence on DVD? The free market is based on choice. People will choose what they want, and that is a good thing. They don't buy what they don't want or cannot afford. What upsets me, personally, is not your opinions of shows, to which you are entitled, but your inability to keep a civil tongue (or fingers, as it relates to typing). Criticism should be constructive, not abusive. Ever stop to read the rules of this forum? I could crap all threads relating to my least favorite TV program ever, "Friends," but that would make me a troll. Go to this site if you need to crap on something: http://www.formetopoopon.com It's fun and refreshing, and saves face. You should be glad the DVD format is mainstream enough to potentially support a wide variety of shows. If a show fails, it's sometimes because of poor marketing, or sometimes because lack of interest, or the release could be botched. We should be more vigilant about cut episodes turning up on DVDs and less upset with what studios are releasing, per se. Get upset about what they aren't releasing and are releasing badly. Did anyone force you to watch programs you don't like? I don't like the concept of the DVD equivalent of book-burning, and we shouldn't start, no matter what comes out.
