I'm just very curious about this so I'd be interested in getting some responses. Do the people, and there seem to be many of them, who foam at the mouth for all of these post-1980 shows, want these things because the DVD format is better quality than tape or because they never taped the shows to begin with. My other question is, if you wanted these shows, why didn't you tape them when they were on? I collect TV shows. I've been collecting for about 25 years. Any show that's been on in that time, if I wanted to have it in my collection, I have taped perfect quality on SP speed with a high grade tape. While it would be nice to get some of these on DVD so as to save me time transferring them myself, there are hundreds of shows prior to the taping era which I would like to get uncut and not off of old, faded or worn out film prints. Unfortunately, I didn't have the option to record these shows in their original form. People in the post-1980 era did with those shows.
