- Real Name
I Admit I don't watch E all that much. However, I have enjoyed this series. Has Universal ever contemplated a season by Season release ?
Too many licenses would have to be cleared for home video.
Quite. Clearances for home video are different (and separate) from broadcast. For some shows, they obtain all clearances at the same time, but for a show like this, I'm almost 100% certain that E! never had any intentions for home video, so would have only gotten clearances for broadcast.
If I still had cable, there are a few episodes I wouldn't mind recording to DVD-R that I currently have on S-VHS...
Some of them were pretty light on clips. Diff'rent Strokes, despite its E!THS being a two-hour long installment made when Dana Plato was still alive, had exactly one: of Nancy Reagan giving her "Just Say No" spiel. Others were heavier on clips but (sometimes, not always) played fast and loose with facts.
