    I can't be the only person tired of waiting for this excellent show, I mean, it stars Jeff Goldblum for crying out loud ! Stephen J. Cannell wrote it, and it features Mike Post's finest theme music (and that says a lot).
    Come on Paramount, it's just a pilot and 1 season, if something like "Wings" (1990) can be released, surely so can this TV classic.

    It's produced by Cannell and if he owns the show and puts it out you can be sure it will be a botch job just like all of his other releases have been.

    What was wrong with The A-Team? Lack of extras aside, that is. And I seem to recall that Greatest American Hero was fine too.

    The "A-Team" was handled by Universal. "Greatest American Hero", "21 Jump Street", "Hunter" etc. were handled by Anchor Bay and contain music replacements, edited episodes etc. Thank goodness Universal is handling "The Rockford Files" or else Cannell would have been complicit in hacking that up as well. If it is ever released, I'm glad he won't be part of a "Toma" release either.

    Not to mention Wiseguy, a great show which has also turned into a debacle on DVD. It's one thing to replace music because of music publishers asking for an enormous fee. But Cannell is just too lazy to even bother asking about the fee. He just takes it all out without even trying.

    Well, I don't think there's music to replace in this show, and as long as the theme's intact. [​IMG]
    Besides, the owners here would be Paramount, not Cannell right ?

    I Remember this was the first show I was ever bummed about it being cancelled, it was a fantastic series that should have been on Longer.

    According to Imdb, Paramount had distribution rights to this show. (Universal had distribution rights to "A-Team"; most of the other Cannell shows are owned solely by Cannell.) So a DVD release wouldn't be handled by Cannell himself, which is the good news; the bad news is I doubt it's on Paramount's radar.

    Paramount is so damn big now that who knows if they even realize they own it. Paramount is like having a giant library that no one can enter. Hey, at least there's 5 TV companies. Music, they're down to 4.
