Ain't It Cool News (

Season-Boxes Denied You 2!!Herc

I am – Hercules!!

Not much in the way of TV DVD coming out on the heels of the holiday week. Far more compelling, once again, is what we crave.

Two weeks ago in this space I moaned about the absence of season-sets for “Chicago Hope,” “Cupid,” “Ed,” “Gideon’s Crossing,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Kolchak: The Night Stalker,” “Line of Fire,” “Maverick,” “Now and Again,” “The Rockford Files,” “St. Elsewhere,” “Tenspeed and Brownshoe,” “The Venture Bros.” and “The Wild Wild West,” as well as a dearth of latter seasons for “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Murder One,” “Twin Peaks” and “Wiseguy.” Then I saw the talkbacks, and immediately seconded the emotions of those who wanted to see these released on season-box:

1) Andy Richter Controls the Universe. Every episode, I believe, made me laugh aloud, but the third – with Andy’s gorgeous anti-Semite girlfriend – was so funny it made me poop my pants a little. Nineteen half-hours were produced. Five apparently never aired.

2) Buffalo Bill. It starred Dabney Coleman (“You’ve Got Mail”), Geena Davis (the “Stuart Little” movies), Max Wright (“The Norm Show”) and Joanna Cassidy (“Six Feet Under) in an ahead-of-its-time sitcom about a mean-spirited and thoroughly self-involved talk-show host. They made 26 half-hours. Eleven aired during the summer of 1983. Fourteen aired early the next year. One never aired at all. And guess what? Lions Gate announced this week that all 26 episodes are coming to DVD on Sept. 6 - with an SRP of less than $30.

3) Clone High. A silly but witty, well-considered animated half-hour with a surprising amount of character development, it boasted one of the catchiest theme songs in the history of history. One episode saw Principal Scudworth endure a perfectly hi-larious roadrunnery feud with a devious skunk. Joan of Arc and Cleopatra pursued pillowy bedroom antics. And if you’re inclined to indulge tasteless humor, make sure it’s as funny as a line like “Nothing bad ever happens to the Kennedys!” Has anyone here seen Abraham, Gandhi and John?

4) Daria. “I am not going to pierce my bellybutton. It never did anything to me.” MTV cranked out 65 episodes over five seasons between 1997 and 2001. How many are on DVD? None! Daria, Jane and Trent all watched a show called “Sick Sad World” and mocked everything in their orbits. I miss Morgendorfer.

5) Eyes. Right up there with “Rockford Files,” “Moonlighting” and “Veronica Mars” as one of the best private-eye series ever aired. Created by John McNamera, who earlier created “Profit” (alongside “Angel” creator David Greenwalt). Genuinely funny. Great characters. Nine episodes shot. Only five aired, earlier this year.

6) Mission: Impossible. A highly addictive cold war adventure hourlong about a supersecret squad of black ops agents who foil with elaborate ruses high-level mobsters and Iron Curtain communists. The series, which ran from 1966 to 1973, exists in one of those “Brazil” universes; the Impossible Missions Force hadn’t quite figured out microcassette recorders and VCRs, but employed technology that still doesn’t exist in 2005 (like tiny telescopes that can enhance the resolution of videotape images – and those famous pull-off masks that can make anyone look exactly like anyone else). The fifth season might be especially fun to own: Not only was it Leonard Nimoy’s second year, but a 26-yar-old mustache-free Sam Elliott (“The Big Lebowski,” “Hulk”) and a 24-year-old Leslie Ann Warren (“The Limey”) both joined the IMF. (And it’s eerily appropriate that J.J. Abrams wound up directing the third “Impossible” movie, since no other series more resembles “Alias.”)

7) My So-Called Life. The teen adventures of Angela Chase, Brian Krakow and Rayanne Graff has already been issued on DVD, but the show cries out for a reissue. Used DVD copies (the ones containing all 19 episodes) are going for between $198 and $250. New sets are now going for $320 to $350.

8) Pasadena. In 2001, after Mike White wrote on “Freaks and Geeks” - but before he wrote the screenplays for “Orange County,” “The Good Girl” and “School of Rock” - he created a darkly comedic primetime soap about a publishing dynasty with criminal ties. It was easily 100 times smarter and funnier than “Desperate Housewives.” Thirteen hours were shot; Fox only aired four, two of them less than a month after 9/11. It starred Alison Lohman (“Matchstick Men,” “Big Fish”), Natasha Gregson Wagner (“High Fidelity,” “The 4400”), Balthazar Getty (“Lost Highway”), Mark Valley (“Keen Eddie,” “Boston Legal”), Martin Donovan (“The Opposite of Sex”), Dana Delany (“China Beach”), Chris Marquette (“Joan of Arcadia”), Nicole Paggi (“Hope & Faith”) and Philip Baker Hall (“In Good Company,” “The Amityville Horror”).

9) Relativity. The series the great Jason Katims created between his writing stint on “My So-Called Life” and his creation of “Roswell,” it was about two L.A. families – one blue-collar and Jewish, the other not – that intersect when their twentysomething kids meet and connect in Italy. It starred Kimberly Williams (“According to Jim”), David Conrad (“Miss Match”), Jane Adams (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), Poppy Montgomery (“Without A Trace”), Lisa Edelstein (“House”), Devon Gummersall (“My So-Called Life,” “Roswell,” “The L Word”) and Richard Schiff (“The West Wing”). Seventeen episodes aired in 1996 and 1997.

10) The Tick. Long before he created the peepee demon on “Angel,” Ben Edlund created a comic book, a Saturday-morning cartoon series and a live action sitcom, all about a strange, slow-witted superman. There were supervillains and sidekicks and other superheroes, and it’s all very entertaining. The entire live-action series has been on DVD for a spell, but none of the 36 animated half hours that ran on Fox between 1994 and 1996.

    Those bastards pulled "Ed" out of syndication

    by Ribbons

    I was getting nice and ready to watch an episode of "Ed" at 12/11 central on TBS today when, to my surprise, it wasn&#39;t there. Thinking that the holiday had facilitated an impromptu change of schedule, I proceeded to check the projected lineup for the next three days -- not a single episode of "Ed" in sight. It&#39;s been usurped by, of all things, an hour block of "Becker." Fucking "Becker." And just when the series was about to cycle back to its first, and best, season. Now more than ever, "Ed" needs a DVD release.

    Help get "Daria" on DVD ...

    by MaryPoppinsWrath

    There are a few episodes available as "bonus features" on the DVDs of the two Daria TV-movies "Is It Fall Yet?" and "Is It College Yet?", but these episodes lack the original music (and IICY? is the cut-for-syndication version, to boot). If you happen to care enough, here&#39;s the URL for the central website dedicated to pushing for more Daria on DVD: ..... There&#39;s a petition to sign, a form letter to mail, the usual stuff. If you&#39;re like me, and have fond memories of the show, take a few minutes to check it out. It&#39;s a good campaign, and the webmaster is in touch with Daria&#39;s creator, Glenn Eichler.

    Bakersfield P.D.

    by L Ron Hubbard

    Bakersfield P.D. gets my vote but I would also like to see Hooperman again. Even more so, "Frank&#39;s Place" and season sets of "Get a Life." For God&#39;s sakes, get those "Larry Sanders" sets out and the remaining "Upright Citizen Brigade" seasons. Plus we need a deluxe box set of "TV Funhouse."

  • Damn that theme song was catchy as hell.

    The Tick back on TV

    by Bungion Boy

    I discovered last week that the animated series The Tick airs every night at 11 on the little noticed cable channle ToonDisney. It&#39;s not an extras-laden dvd, but it&#39;s a start and enough to tide me over for a few months.

    The Paula Marshall Collection

    by Hell's Cigarette

    I would love to see a collection of all the Paula Marshall sitcoms/hourlongs...Cupid, Chicago Sons, Snoops, Cursed, Hidden Hills (throw in the guest spots on Spin City, Veronica Mars and Sports Night). Granted, this would never happen...but a guy can dream,can&#39;t he? It would go great with a Ted McGinley collection, wouldn&#39;t it?

    Ed is Dead

    by Incomplete Gamer

    Ribbons, I noticed that Ed hasn&#39;t been recording (on my ReplayTV) lately ... but now I realize that you&#39;re right, Ed is Dead!! I had actually just started recording it over the last two weeks, I was just starting to really get into it. Just doesn&#39;t seem right. This would be the type of thing I would buy on DVD. Uggh.

    Hooperman with John Ritter. The short-lived series Automan, Manimal and Blue Thunder. Tales of the Gold Monkey. Dark Skies. Fantastic Journey. Jeremiah s2. Season sets of The New Outer Limits. Seaquest. Trapper John M.D. Witchblade. The studios need to realise people ARE willing to buy these series if they price them right!

    Bakerfield P.D is very special

    by John-Locke

    I came here to give my choice but L Ron Hubbard was well ahead of me. Truly one of the great unknown TV series. BTW anybody in UK who is always hearing about Wonderfalls on this site (and hasn&#39;t bought/downloaded it) it starts on Sky One this week (possibly tonight), Men I recommend watching it with your partner (if you have one) it gets better as it goes on so don&#39;t give up on it.

    Maximum Bob

    by John-Locke

    I&#39;ve read the book but never got a chance to see Beau Bridges take on the classic Elmore Leonard character. Oh and Karen Sisco would be nice as well (being in the UK I have no idea if it was actually anything like a Leonard book but they are his characters, was it as good as it sounds?)

    The 90s Spiderman cartoon

    by Rapmaster C

    needs to be on DVD now. And I&#39;m talking season boxsets, not these silly ones with 3 or 4 mediocre episodes. Also, start releasing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in season boxsets as well. Come on, even the most cynical of you will leap for joy when you hear the immortal "Time for REAL Dragonzord power!" again.

    Herskovitz and Zwick

    by nny777

    are tv gods. Good job on putting MSCL and Relativity on there. Relativity is pretty much my number 1 pick for most needed on dvd because it&#39;s never been rerun. The other 3 H/Z shows have been rerun numerous times on cable, but AFAIK Relativity has only seen the light of day once. You should add thirtysomething to your list too. A lot of people seem to hate that show for some reason, but it&#39;s actually a bit better than Relativity and MSCL because it actually stayed on the air for a few years. If MSCL had lasted a couple years it&#39;d easily be the best TV show of all time.

  • July 5, 2005, 9:23 p.m. CST

    police squad!

    by nny777

    Forgot to mention my second pick after Relativity would be Police Squad! I think it was actually on laserdisc, but I don&#39;t think it ever got a dvd release. Maybe I&#39;m just weird, but I think PS! is 100 times better than the Naked Gun movies. PS! was on the same level of quality as Airplane!, but by the time Naked Gun was made, the Zucker&#39;s were already at the same level of crappiness they are today. Also, I love Mike White, but Pasadena was pretty mediocre. DH is 100 times as smart and funny as Pasadena was. They&#39;re not really even the same genre. DH is a comedy with some soap elements and some really great slice of life type moments. Pasadena was an over the top soap with a little bit of an undercurrent of dark comedy, but not really enough to ever give you a good laugh.

    THIS SUMMER Space:Above&Beyond!!!!!!!

    by DarthTaterSalad

    Read on the TV On DvD website, that SAAB will be out this summer on DVD from Best Buy exclusively for a couple months then other retailers. No word on any extra features but there is this at least. Truly a show that deserved more then the dreaded Fox Friday Night Massacre&#39;s of the 90&#39;s such as Briscoe County, Jr. , Vr.5, The Visitor (had promise needed tweeking, hell even Strange Luck wasn&#39;t that bad. BTW, when your wife meets Shawn Cassidy in person touring her workplace and the first thing she blurts out is that her Husband Loved American Gothic, is that a good thing? Sure beats the hell out of "You were my first crush when I was 9" don&#39;t it? Supposedly doing a new HBO series he is, in the same sort of vein as Gothic? Who knows, just telling what I heard.

    for shame, Herc. I know it has nothing to do with that Joss guy, but it can still be good if it isn&#39;t related to the buffyverse, can&#39;t it? (I know, you like the teenybopper shows too...)

    Relativity was a good one

    Definitely hope that short lived show gets the DVD call. Still waiting for Strange Luck and Wonderland though...

    This show was killed after 9/11, but I think America is ready to see George threaten to punch Laura in the mouth again.

    Well, that&#39;s embarassing...

    by Silverhour

    Didn&#39;t think the first try posted, so I wrote it twice... oh well. Anyway, DarthTaterSalad, I don&#39;t see anywhere on tvshowstodvd that SAAB is listed for any release date. It&#39;s not even mentioned anywhere I can find.

    Push, Nevada.

    I watched most of the show up until the finale which was apparently shown during MNF, which I never watch. I thought it was a great show that needs to be on DVD! Also, I second Parker Lewis Can&#39;t Lose.

    did I just pass over it when I was scanning the titles?

    Wow, talk about short term memory...

    With the exception of Mission: Impossible, what are all of these? Fifteen years old or less? Sgt. Bilko a/k/a The Phil Silvers Show won some British award for best comedy series ever (over such home grown masterpieces as Fawlty Towers). Or how about some of the other espionage series from the 60s: The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Get Smart, It Takes a Thief, Honey West, or my personal favorite, The Wild, Wild West? (I can&#39;t believe Baa Baa Black Sheep a/k/a The Black Sheep Squadron made it to DVD before The Wild, Wild West. Or for that matter, that The Munsters hit DVD before The Addams Family.) Where is Ghost Story a/k/a Circle of Fear? The Invaders? (Or any of the more straight "road" series

    Fantastic puppet sf from Japan, originally called X-Bomber. At least you can get a pirate version on DVD now, but it deserves a proper release.Gimme.

    You have forgotten the obvious:

    The STAR TREK ANIMATED SERIES! Why isn&#39;t this one out or scheduled for release? Unlike most animated tv knockoffs of that era, the two Star Trek animated seasons at times equalled the quality of TOS. Several of the TOS writers scripted episodes (D.C. Fontanna and David Gerrod, both come to my mind. And also not mentioned: The original HB FANTASTIC FOUR animated series! What ammount of red tape is barring its release? Finally, the long forgotten BEATLES animated series, featuring stories inspired by classic Beatles tunes. They were all tiny proto music videos in their own right. Plus, there was a weekly sing-a-long feature. This should be out!

    To Check out Corner Gas on DVD. Been watching it in syndication here in Canada (missed it when it first ran on CTV) but it is just too funny, even the episodes I&#39;ve already seen. It&#39;s as rewatchable as the Simpsons, IMO. The premise: Popular comedian Brent Butt returns to small town Saskatchewan to portray the life he would have led had he gotten a real job - pumping gas at CORNER GAS
