    I wonder if there is any hope for these 20th Century Fox titles?

    WKRP in Cinncinati (everyone knows about music rights
    mess with this show)
    Mr.Belvedere
    Rhoda
    The Fall Guy

    No one seems to talk about the last three. Are they a lost cause??

    Yeah I'm surprised the Fall Guy isn't already out on DVD like other similar shows during its time.

    I'm actually more interested in this than I am in Mary Tyler Moore. I used to have a crush on Julie Kavner. [​IMG]

    Now, I would love to see Mr. Belvedere on DVD. Its an underrated 80s sitcom IMO, but I don't see Fox releasing it...it seems more like something Shout!, Image or Rhino would release.

    I'd also like to see Small Wonder on DVD, but again, that would probably be released by one of the independent companies instead of Fox. Then again, you never know...

    I remember Shout! Factory saying in an e-mail that they were getting several requests for Small Wonder on DVD, so I'd say there was hope for that show. As for Mr. Belvedere, I can't see why that show wouldn't be released someday.

    John, interesting that you mention Shout. I am not familiar with them. Personally, I think you are right about FOX releasing this, my philosophy is that I don't care who releases these shows, as long as someone does!!

    Rob, gotta agree with you on this one! I enjoy watching Rhoda much more than MTM. I had a crush on RHoda! She was hot in those early episodes!!

    I liked this show as well, but I think the chances of it coming out on D are at best a long shot. The reason is that MTM had a difficult time of it on DVD, at least season 1, here's hoping season 2 does better, but I think given that, it is unlikely this will be released. Heck, this could appeal to an even smaller audience than the MTM DVDs did. I'd say the best chance is if the future seasons split of MTM sell well, then the better they sell, I'd say the better the chance but still a long shot.

    I'd buy the first three seasons of this, before it went off the rails and got really ridiculous.

    Hey, Dan. FYI, Shout! Factory has released three excellent DVD sets so far: Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Series, Punky Brewster: Season 1 and SCTV Network 90: Vol 1. Also, I think they're bringing Undeclared to DVD next year. Good stuff...
