    hope i didn't get anyones hope up- its not been announced, but with the odd assortment of things that are seeing a release lately, i was wondering how many other people out there would be interested in this?
    i think i would go into a diabetic coma watching a full season set, but i think something patterned after Shout Factorys Here's Lucy Set would be really ideal.
    10 to 12 full eps -or about 12 hours of a compilation of skits, openings and musical numbers from across a season(seasons)with some accompanying bonus material (rehersal footage, home movies, commentaries, etc)
    i don't know if the two are still trying to distance themselves from this era of their lives or not, i know Marie was having a rough time a couple years back, but i do hope this happens someday soon.

    anyone else up for this?

    Paul, Hi.

    I'd go along with a "best of" or a compilation release like you mentioned. I'd be interested in this series mainly since it's from an era that I like to revisit [​IMG]
    Most of my TV/DVD collecion is 60's and 70's shows with a few 80's and fewer 90's.

    I would buy full season sets! It was only on for a few years anyway...and they had the best guest stars. [​IMG]

    was wondering if anyone has heard anything more on this.
    Gord reported that it was in development over at R2 with major input from Donny and was expected to be a 3 disc set released, tentatively around April.

    guess that was too optimistic as it would have been solicited by now- but has anyone heard anything further on this?

    hope it doesn't get scuttled as its one of the releases i'm most looking forward to this year

    I think this would be a hoot to watch in small doses like a compilation. I'm guessing music rights would make season sets unlikely. They did have some good musical guests such as a newly-solo Tina Turner. A few of these episodes have turned up as retro specials on [email protected]
