    "What's exciting about the business is that you can be successful and be making money at 15,000 to 20,000 units for those classic shows if costs are sort of kept down," said Marc Rashba, vice president of catalog marketing for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    Oh, really? I wonder if that's true. If it is true, then there's no reason why Sony shouldn't dig into their catalog and release just about everything, including those shows from the '50s and '60s we old geezers remember so fondly. But I bet they won't!

    Yep, if the existing transfers aren't cleaned up...if there are no extras...and if we get snapper cases.

    Thanks for correcting that Paul. Not sure what happened there. Somehow I copied the wrong URL.

    Glenn, great article. Thanks [​IMG]

    This helps reassure some of us that might be thinking that the TV/DVD industry may start slowing down (I sure hope not!)

    I guess on the "+" side of the issue is, that there are countless series that have yet to be released. The older "classic" series can't get released soon enough for me [​IMG]

    There are still a lot of good comedies like the Phil Silvers Show, Car 54, and McHale's Navy which hasn't even been touched by the studios and had a lot of syndication. Hopefully they get to those eventually so a whole new audience can experience them.

    What I find interesting is if they can make money at that few of units why don't they go ahead and put out the second season of shows that fans e-mail them about constantly asking for ?

    Because they can use the same resources on shows that they think will sell more?

    If it meant that we get the rest of Mad About You, I'd be completely happy with that presentation.

    And for that matter, any more of Everwood...
