Now I know that every show (no matter how bad it is) has fans - so this is not a "Why is that crappy show being released on DVD" thread. But I am wondering if all those new releases aren't hurting the TV market as a whole. Why can't studios when they start releasing a show do the same as Paramount did with Star Trek and release all seasons of that show within a year and then do some other series after? This six-month-delay is starting to keep me from buying TV-DVDs. Just look at Magnum, p.i. for example - it'll probably take at least four years until all seasons are out. Who knows if we're even buying DVDs in four years anymore. I'm pretty sure that all of those HD-DVD formats will be a complete flop (because the general public will not want to upgrade) but what if it isn't? The fans of all shows (except Star Trek) will end up owning the first few seasons and will then have to start over. So instead of bringing out first season after first season, why can't Universal start releasing all seasons of Quantum Leap and Magnum, p.i. (for example) by the end of 2005? Why can't Paramount release all of Frasier and Cheers by the end of 2005? Instead they'll keep on giving us season one of every obscure TV show out there and in the end they'll end up killing the market because people are getting fed up with waiting for further seasons or starting with a show knowing they'll never be able to finish it.
