Don't get me wrong, I think its great that many popular shows are being released in their original uncut form. But what about the shows that will never sell in huge numbers? I'm not talking about recent stuff from the last 5-10 years. I mean shows like these: Coronet Blue - great series, shot in 1965, aired in summer 1967, great ratings but by the time CBS put it on the star had moved on. Check the Jump the Shark site for many comments on the show. Only 13 episodes, too small for syndication, perfectfor DVD. T.H.E. Cat - Robert Loggia as a bodyguard. Great score by Lalo Schifrin. Lots of violence. Ran only 1 year. Way Out - Twilight Zone type show, only creepier and not as light-hearted. 14 episodes, did great on the coasts, not so well in the rest of the country. Crusader Rabbit - First Jay Ward cartoon, one of first cartoons made for television. Primitive animation but a landmark cartoon. Obviously none of these things would sell anywhere near 25,000 but in the music world we see releases of groups who never even had their albums come out. I mean, not by major labels but by smaller labels. Can we see that here or are the studios too greedy to license out product for reasonable amounts of money? In the music world, some companies are easy to deal with, some impossible. As many are the same companies, here's how they break down: Sony, RCA, EMI - very accomodating. Universal, Warners - next to impossible, demanding unmeetable guarantees. Independents - usually very easy.
