Directly from DVDAngle:
Yes, congratulations are in order. Now that they have smelled the $$$ they will deliver.
I remember when every studio was extremely skiddish on it. Im glad they took the gamble and started to deliver!
I second your congratulations. Were it not for X-Files sets, I doubt we'd see the awesome Complete Season releases we get now. Either the Paramount single disc at a time release schedule or the Warner themed discs release schedule.
Congrats again to TCFHE!
Thanks Fox, for being the first company to have the guts to do TV on DVD right. You have been rewarded for the chance you took, and so have we
Again, my hats off to Fox. X-Files, Buffy, Malcolm....here's hoping this opens the doors for Roswell too.
We don't hear from Peter Staddon much on
this forum anymore, but if he's reading this,
I'd like to offer hearty congratulations.
I am certain that their initial entry into
television released on DVD came with much
uncertainty as to how successful the releases
I think it's an important milestone for the
success of these releases at Fox, for it only
means we will be seeing more such product not
just from that studio, but others as well.
Now get Lost In Space out!
Now if they'd just release Millennium everything would be right with the world!
PS: Nice wheels Ron.

(Keep in mind that one of those Buffy "releases" is the Emmy screener)
There is no doubt that Fox has eschewed quantity over quality. Competing major studios like Warner, Paramount, Columbia, and even the BBC have put out anywhere from 40-ish to 70-ish TV-on-DVD titles. Mostly in the individual episode(s) format, of course. I don't want to take anything away from those studios, and this isn't a put-down to them. They have done great.
But Fox pioneered the seasonal box set, with their excellent X-Files Season 1 release, almost 2½ years ago now. And, although they've experimented with other collection formats (Ally McBeal, Digimon), they have stuck to their guns and their boxes since.
Now everyone and their brother has adapted to this very same format...including the studios I mentioned above.
Studios who weren't in the TV-on-DVD game at all are getting into it now...in PRECISELY the seasonal format that Fox pioneered!
The fans saw what Fox did, and saw the future. They have been driving this copy-cat effort, because Fox found it was exactly what the fans want. Demand for seasonal sets is the norm over at TVShowsOnDVD. Rarely does someone say they will only settle for a portion of a series.
Fox - and Peter, if he's watching - deserve hearty congratulations. They may get complaints...but they usually consist of the idea that these aren't coming out fast enough! Well, enthusiastic consumers with money to burn for their favorites can perhaps be excused for a wee bit of impatience.
Thank you for all of this, Fox.
Congratulations as well.
I am not sure which studio holds the rights to The Time Tunnel or Land of the Giants, bring them on.
I keep hoping TV on DVD success will get Sliders released, I mean, if you got Farscape and Stargate and Babylon 5, you just GOTTA have Sliders!
If they really want to do right (well, by me)...
All the episodes.
And BRISCO COUNTY.
I too am happy for the studios. The more they make. The more shows we get. And everyone is happy.
ps-I have noticed that we haven't heard from Peter Staddon or Martin Blythe lately. I hope we didn't do anything to keep them away?
Todd, I think both of them are in the final stages of preparing Christmas, or on a decompression vacation from such
Congrats FOX!!!!!!! You put out the best TV sets on DVD. Now please release Family Guy!
I would love to see
with Jay Morh and Buddy Hackett
one box should do it!
I would love to see
with Jay Mohr and Buddy Hackett
one box should do it!
Way to go, FOX! I remember holding that first season of X-Files and getting that funny feeling in my hand when I shook it. At first I thought it was magic, later I found out it was those seven discs spinning together.
Keep 'em comming!
One more thing. Could you guys lower the price on the UK Buffy/Angel releases? I don't want to switch regions half way through the series. Plus, I'd have to wait a lot longer, which I can't do 'caus of medical reasons
Fox gets my TV-on-DVD dollar.
If Paramount wants my dollar, they'll make the episodes affordable like Fox does.
I will add my hearty congrats as well and say that I love the X-Files and Buffy sets I am now collecting. So far my television on DVD collection is all Fox all the time ...
