    Except that 30 Rock will also be on Peacock so their contract with streaming does not necessarily preclude a disc licensing deal.

    And maybe they'll finally let them have Murder, She Wrote, too.

    Yeah, but there wasn't a $100 million bidding war for 30 Rock.

    The Office is Peacock's big draw. 30 Rock, great show that it is, is an afterthought. So based on that, I don't think NBCU lets The Office go the way they do their shows that aren't cash cows.

    They'd be foolish to turn down the money from discs as long as there is still money to be made from them. NBCUniversal and Mill Creek both know this show will sell plenty of copies on Blu-ray if released that way. They just want the timing to be right.

    Did they do this because they seemed to realize that many of the people who remember their shows (the shows from Paramount, et al. that they own) wanted to remember those shows as they originally aired, logos and all?

    Sony has done the most to turn things around there. Since the 2000s, they've been getting better — albeit not 100% so — about restoring original logos.

    Never realized that Sony had made such a commitment on that front!

    The question is whether VEI has a point man at MGM or Disney/Fox.

    If VEI's point man is at Disney/Fox, this might be good news.

    I’m losing hope for the last 2 seasons of Mayberry RFD. Unless the original Dragnet TV series 1951 to 58 or the seasons of Gomer Pyle USMC are released fully restored, my Collection on physical media is all but complete

    Police Squad on Blu-Ray is unexpected. I'll probably pick it up, never seen an episode.

    It had already been announced for an Australian release around the same time, and I was going to.buy that one. But now that a US release has sprang up, well, convenience wins.
