As someone who was born at the peak of the baby boom, in 1957, it just occured to me that this whole studio schedule of releasing current shows now and then going into the back catalogue is a flawed logic. So many of these great shows (Man from UNCLE, Invaders, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, etc) mostly appeal to the baby boomers. Well as the years pass and we get older, there goes the market. The youngest boomers born in 1947 are now in their late 50s. Ten years from now when they are on Social Security I don't think they'll be buying DVDs. So the whole thought process of eventually we'll get to it just doesn't work. "Getting to it" when the audience for "it" is either dead or too old to be bothered is assinine. 5 years from now the market won't have changed for all of this 80s crap like A-Team and Miami Vice. But it will change for the older shows. Hard to market to the deceased and infirm.
