Silver Spoons DVD Canned?; Plus Extras for Titus S3 DVD!

Today we have all TV DVD news to report. Good news and bad news, though. Let's start with the bad news, to get that out of the way. Judith A. Moose, who is the author of the book on the '80s series Silver Spoons and is friends with Erin Gray and Joel Higgins, has informed us of bad news regarding the DVD release of Silver Spoons. The show was penciled in for November many months ago, but of course that isn't happening.

Here it is in her own words:
"It is with great sadness that I have to report that Sony has pulled the plug on the upcoming release of Silver Spoons. I have been told that the show is being put on hold because of the poor sales numbers of the Punky Brewster and Diff'rent Strokes sets. Sony has opted that The Facts of Life will come out before Silver Spoons does and for the moment there are no immediate plans to release either series. The news came from the head of the legal department for copyrights at Sony. I'll keep trying folks but at the moment it appears to be a losing battle."

You can view that statement and post questions to Judith or comment on this here. While this is not good news at all, let's hope Sony reconsiders and we get this series very soon. I think we might see Diff'rent Strokes Season 2 soon, despite what has said to be "poor sales." Let's hope Sony listens to us and gives us DVD debuts for shows like Facts of Life, Silver Spoons and One Day at a Time.

Now for some actual good news. We are the first ones reporting this piece. It is what the special features are on season three of Titus. You can view it all here! It looks to be a good set for the final season of this series.
