Oh man! I pre-ordered from Amazon before checking in on this!
Oh well, I guess the only saving grace would be the fact that I haven't watched the repeats enough to know where all of the music replacements were. Unlike the Simpsons that I've seen SO many times that I know it like the back of my hand, at least if they replace a song in this set, I can get used to it quicker and just accept it as the original song
It would surprise me if any show that is currently in production would have replacement music since TV on DVD is such a big business. Are there examples of shows produced for the 2005- 2006 TV season that are now on DVD where there is replacement music ?
But that's a double edged sword - If you think about that, it actually would make sense that there would be MORE music replacement. The CD industry isn't doing well, so where are the music studios going to make the money? By charging TV studios for using their songs. They know that DVD is "big business", so why not charge an arm and a leg??
They most definitely want a piece of the TV DVD business.
Since studios know that their TV shows will most likely be released on DVD, I would think that shows that are produced now would include the rights to use music on the eventual DVD release. It is older shows that have the music problems because the idea of releasing a whole season of a TV show on home video was not thought possible at the time the TV shows were produced.
are shows a case by case basis, like the ones they figure would fare better on DVD get negotiated early while ones that might not do so well are kinda left in limbo. I mean, any Supernatural fan knows the emphasis and importance that classic rock music has on the show, and yet every single song that aired on WB last season also transferred over to the DVD. Yet... the same company who owns Supernatural also owns Cold Case and doesn't wanna bother with getting that one cleared for DVD. Is it because Supernatural appeals more to the sci-fi/horror type crowd that is a bit more devoted whereas Cold Case is a cop-style show, and with the exception of CSI, they don't seem to be quite as big on DVD (just look at how long it took before Fox returned to NYPD Blue, and also Warner's abandonment of Without A Trace). So is it a case by case basis because it was more obvious that Supernatural would have an audience on DVD that would buy the DVD's and make it worth the while to put the music on the sets, whereas Cold Case could likely be a poor seller and the same company would take a financial hit?
