This show was brilliant. My friends and I use to quote all the classic lines from that weeks episode throughout all our classes. I really miss this one and hope to see it soon on DVD. How long did it run? 2 seasons? 1 and a 1/2? I forget.
Two short seasons -- a total of 19 episodes were filmed, 5 of which I believe never aired. If I were to rattle off a list of TV shows I want on DVD, ARCTU would be at the very top. I think Paramount holds the home video rights.
There are five episodes that didn't air on FOX. Two of them are actually FIRST season episodes. FOX really screwed around with the scheduling with this show, airing first season episodes in the middle of the second season, and wildly out of order.
Fox seems great at killing their own shows with timeslot shuffles. I guess they make all their money with crap reality tv and Springer reruns and relegate their other departments to the basement. Hope it eventually bites them in the ass.
I'd snap up an Andy boxset in a second, the show was genius.
Sandy Grushow, the guy most responsible for that shuffling (and other stuff, like failing to market shows and placing shows he didn't personally like in timeslots doomed to failure), was fired from Fox a while back. Let's hope things settle down going forward.
I loved this show and was very disappointed when it didn't come back. I mean, who didn't love the fact that only Andy could see this creepy, old, dead businessman continually hassling him? Count me in!
Still no DVD for this great show. With bootleg copies going for over $50 on ebay you would think Paramount(?) would make money. I'm tempted to get an HD Tivo just so I can record all the episodes before HDnet quits showing them.
