Just pay him whatever he wants? Really? Wow, you're pretty generous with other people's money. Its worth very little as its a niche release of a show which no one has seen in over 45 years meaning that no one under 50 would likely even know what it is. And considering that only around 10 or 11 exist, there is no chance anything could be done with it other than this DVD release. Not to mention that due to negligence on the part of the producer, most episodes hadn't been registered for copyright, which allowed this guy to be making money on VHS sales for the last 30 years. But now that they are copyrighted, he can't do that anymore. But anyone who thinks this thing is going to sell very much is delusional. It'll make its money back if they're lucky.
