    You could also visit the TV on DVD website linked in Dave's sig. They probably have the latest news known for each show.

    Well, Malcolm's essentially correct in that if I knew anything, I would have mentioned it at TVShowsOnDVD.

    I had originally bypassed this thread because yesterday was a hectic day for me (today still is too, but I have a minute).

    But sure, I'm game to share my opinions:

    Fresh Prince of Bel-Air...I think NBC owns the DVD rights to this, but would have to get Will Smith and Quincy Jones to sign off on it. I don't know if the latter is a problem or not. I think that this is much more likely to see the light of day under the new "NBC Universal" powerhouse. [​IMG]

    Grounded For Life, That 70s Show...are all owned by Carsey-Werner, who hasn't put a single one of their shows onto DVD other than some Columbia House (subscription-only and expensive) releases of The Cosby Show. Personally I'd like to see those, but I think it's more likely we'll first see retail releases of The Cosby Show along with A Different World, Roseanne, Third Rock From The Sun, and Grace Under Fire. That is, whenever this studio gets around to doing DVDs at all.


    Are You Afraid of the Dark?...I think Nickelodeon and distributer Paramount are concentrating on the newer cartoons, sorry.

    Brimstone...seem to recall the name, but I never watched it and don't recall a thing about it.

    Mad TV...my opinion is that the clearance rights to get this out on DVD would be too much, and that Fox would never do it. On the other hand, that was my exact opinion about In Living Color, and that's in-the-works! So what the hell do I know? [​IMG]

    Alf...I think that the rights holders to this - whoever they may be - are seriously missing the boat on this item. I think it would sell nicely, if done right. If the rights holders read this and aren't a big studio themselves (or affiliated with one), I bet that Anchor Bay or Rhino would welcome a call from them! :wink:

    Pirate Islands, Sightings...never heard of these, sorry.


    I DO get an ego boost from being a "pundit" on these matters, but remember please that's it just one man's opinion, and that any actual *facts* I have are shared as I get them. Thanks,

    Thanks Dave [​IMG]

    Brimstone was a show that wqas on Fox in 1998-1999 and was about cop Ezekial Stone who after being shot was sent to hell for killing a man who had raped his wife. 113 of the most vile souls escaped Hell and the Devil gave Stone a deal if you return all 113 to me i'll give you a second chance at life on Earth. It was a really awesome show that should have more then 13 episodes and is one of my most favourite shows. Fox seriously needs to put this on DVD. I'm trying to get enough perople to vote on your site so i can at least make an impression that people want it out. It might not work but its worth a chance and i think this show deserves at least that. Please Vote for Brimstone.

    Pirate Islands is a new show that came out in March and is an Austrailan show about while kids were testing a new pirate game they accidently get sucked into the game and now have to find a way out. This show has easily become one of my favourite shows of 2003 as it has a pirate story and theme which i love. Too bad Fox isn't showing it anymore.

    Sightings was a show similar to Unsolved Mysteries and came out i think in 1990. It had the coolest stories of the paranormal ever. I really miss this show. While it would never come out in Season Sets i'd take a best of for this anyday.

    Also what about the shows that are in the top 20 at your site? What are they? Which ones have had the votes to get to DVD and get the Companie's attention?

    Jim,
    Greatest American Hero was on for about 2 years (est) in the 80's. A rough description of the show follows:

    A schoolteacher gets a superhero suit giving him powers from an alien rae, telling him to fight crime. He loses the instruction book however. He teams up with his lawyer girlfriend and a bitter FBI agent and the three of them get the bad guys.

    It was produced by Stephen J Cannell.

    Dave's back on-line for the first time since mid-Friday, but I have to run food shopping right now. I'll see if I can answer those in-depth questions a bit later. [​IMG]
