    And Neil Brock is hoping for East Side-West Side to come out, maybe from Shout-owned TMG.

    I asked this in the Fridays thread but never got an answer,so I'll ask here. Has anybody heard anything regarding how Fridays sold? I hope well enough to get a second volume released next year.

    Anyone know what happened with Quincy, does Shout! plan on finishing this?! The last release was back in July and they have now announced releases through March 2014 with no sign of any further releases. There are only two seasons left and based on the pace of the three seasons Shout has released I thought this one was doing well and would be finished?!

    I have sent a couple of emails asking them about Quincy, but never received a response. I wrote to TVShowsonDVD and asked if they had heard anything. They said they had no specific information about future plans but had heard that the series had not sold well for Shout.

    Darn, about Quincy. I need to get what's out, haven't bought a one. Partly my fault.

    It would be great if the series gets finished, but honestly I'm pretty happy that Shout! even released seasons 4,5, and 6 because after the huge amount of time that passed after the first box that had seasons 1 and 2, in 2005, I thought that was it for releases. Then in 2009 came season 3, and I thought that was going to be it, since another three years passed. I'm glad to have six seasons.

    I hope for "Police Woman" Season 3 and 4. I also hope that they get the rights from Fox to continue "The Fall Guy" with Lee Majors and Sony´s "Hart to Hart"-Season 3-5.

    I'm not surprised Quincy ground to a halt because as the show went on it was nothing more than an advocacy program with incidental storytelling. I was glad we got one release which had the key episode I wanted from the run (Jessica Walter in a dual role as a woman who kills her twin sister) but I can frankly live with it not being complete at tihs point (I can not say the same of the long abandoned Ironside).

    the only Quincy I remember is one I saw when it originally aired. They follow a cheap hand gun around from person to person. I remember thinking that was some of the best television I ever saw.

    Good show, although it did borrow the basic conceit from a Levinson and Link tv-movie. The episode is called "Guns Don't Die" and it would be on the next set to be released.

    I have sent emails to them as well about various titles and never received a reply either, it appears they can't be bothered answering customer inquiries yet expect you to buy the stuff they release. ;)

    As for it not selling well that doesn't really makes sense IMO. Shout! released three seaons in the span of 7 months, to me that indicates that it did sell well. Perhaps they meant to say that season 6 did not sell well, that I could see as it has been mentioned that each subsequent season tends to sell less then the previous one. Are they not even going to try and finish it through the Select program, Simon & Simon only made it 4 seasons in retail yet they managed to release the final four seasons via Shout! Select.

    I wish that Fantasy Island would be completed.

    I would really like the re-launch of the series to be released. I thought it was a great re-imagining of the show that added to the original and didn't act like it never happened.

    I'd like to see Shout/TMG strike a deal with Universal to replace the transfers from 16mm of late season 4 and all of seasons 5-6, and 8 with new HD transfers from 35mm, including five rare color episodes from season 5. Season 7 should have 29 uncut episodes replacing the edited-for syndication versions, I know, I have the WT Complete Color Season set with those 29 and just three uncut episodes.

    I really haven't collected much TV on DVD or blu-ray, but I just ordered all 3 seasons of Fantasy Island. Hopefully the remaining seasons will be released some day. I had actually forgotten all about that show.

    I don't think I ever saw the 1998 new Fantasy Island, but it does sound interesting...and Malcolm McDowell seems like a good choice. I would buy it if it were released.
