Digital Digest: Where Are My Season 2's And/Or Additional Seasons of My Favorite Sitcoms on DVD?

Welcome to another edition of Digital Digest! We don't have a review for you this week here but we do have an interesting feature story that will make you interested! There are some sitcoms that on DVD that don't get any releases after a first season or sometimes we get a few seasons then nothing more. Find out how long it has been for some of these sitcoms! And it's another light news week, but what can we do about that? It is summer.

DIGITAL NEWS

It's more dog days of summer in terms of news releases. Most of the news items this week are once again about current series. Sitcom wise we got information on two series. ABC/Disney has now given more information on the Sept. 28 release date for Scrubs - The Complete Ninth and Final Season ($29.99 MSRP) and Scrubs - The Complete Collection ($149.99 MSRP) on DVD. We get special features details and also a look at the packaging for both. View all of that here. Next we get a Aug. 31 release date for Warner Bros. series The Middle - The Complete First Season ($44.98 MSRP) from Warner Home Video. The ABC freshman sitcom airs Wednesdays at 8 on ABC. More details will come shortly, but for now we get the release date.
Sticking with comedy, although not a sitcom, we get two special SNL releases from Lionsgate. Both of these sets are re-releases but with ADDED bonus content. That is always a plus! Both of these are out on July 13. Saturday Night Live - Best of Will Ferrell ($14.98 MSRP) and Saturday Night Live - Best of Tracy Morgan ($14.98 MSRP). For the bonus material and package art, check this out.

Moving on to dramas, we get details on FLASHFORWARD, V, 90210, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Fringe, Chuck, Glee and more.This is the time of the year when we get these past season's shows on DVD, so August/September will have crazy amount of current series on DVD. We'll detail a few of those I mentioned above. We get details on FLASHFORWARD - The Complete Series (Aug. 31, $59.99 MSRP) from ABC/Disney. View the package art and a list of bonus features. Too bad the show is not getting a second season. Warner Bros. officially announced V - The Complete First Season (August 24), on both DVD ($39.98 MSRP) and Blu-ray ($49.99 MSRP). Bonus features are still to come but check out the package art. And the Fox sensation Glee is coming to DVD as well. We already knew about the Sept. 14 release date, but now we have full details on the special features. Pre-ordering for Glee -The Complete First Season on both DVD and Blu-ray has not yet begun.

All of the other news items were not concrete information or didn't really fit our website. Hopefully next week brings us more news--especially in sitcoms!


UPCOMING WEEK PREVIEW

Tuesday (June 15) has quite a few releases in store, with lots of sitcoms. First up, American Dad! - Volume 5 from 20th Century Fox. Next we have Family Guy - Volume 8 also from 20th Century Fox. Then we have actual sitcoms with Here's Lucy - Season 3 from MPI Home Video. We get more '60s fun with Leave it to Beaver - Season 3 from Shout! Factory. And finally CBS Home Video gives us My Three Sons - Season 2, Vol. 2. Unfortunately we do not have reviews of these in time for you. We are working on them and hope to shelve out some of these reviews in the coming week. So stay with us!


BLOG FEATURE STORY

Where Are My Season 2's And/Or Additional Seasons of My Favorite Sitcoms on DVD?
by Pavan

Ever wondered how come this show has not seen a season two DVD in YEARS or why this show stopped at a season 3 on DVD? Well, you're not alone obviously. There are plenty of sitcoms that fit these two categories and frankly we hope they are released soon! The studios say that most of these have not continued because of sales. Some because of music clearances. Whatever the case may be, fans are certainly not happy as they invested in buying a season or even a few seasons and the studio just stops releasing. Today we will look at all the sitcoms that haven't continued on DVD in over a year. Some cases are even more extreme that it has been 5 years. We hope the studios sees this story and decides to do something about these sets and continue in someway--whether it be selling it on their website only or licensing it to a third-party studio, like Shout! Factory. Here is our list:

  • All in the Family (Sony Pictures) - Stopped after the sixth season, which was released over 3 years ago (Feb. 13, 2007). Only two seasons remain to be released.
  • Anything But Love (20th Century Fox) - Stopped after the first DVD set containing the first two seasons, which was released also over 3 years ago Feb. 6, 2007). Only two short seasons remain to be released, which can be done in one set.
  • Archie Bunker's Place (Sony Pictures) - Only the first season was released over 4 years ago (Jan. 31, 2006). Not sure why Sony released this set since they haven't even finished All in the Family yet, so it made it worse that they stopped this series after just one season. Three more seasons remain to be released.
  • Barney Miller (Sony Pictures) - Three seasons have been released, as the third season came out on March 17, 2009. So it hasn't been too long, but remember there was a four year wait in between seasons 1 and 2. Season three came out a year after season two, so where is season 4, Sony? Five more seasons are left to be released.
  • Benson (Sony Pictures) - The first season DVD was released nearly three years ago (July 24, 2007). It was one and done after that. There is along way to go, as we have six more seasons left.
  • Bernie Mac Show (20th Century Fox) - The first season was released a startling 6 years ago (May 4, 2004). It's been so long that LOST hadn't even premiered yet on ABC, and that show just had its series finale last month. Fox says music rights are the culprit. Bernie passed away and they still couldn't try to continue? Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • The Beverly Hillbillies (CBS Home Video) - The first three seasons have been released, but it has been over a year since the third season came out (Feb. 17, 2009). CBS DVD is usually very fast in releasing series, as they have cheap sets, so this is surprising that it has been over a year. Let's hope they continue very soon. Six more seasons are left to be released.
  • Blossom (Shout! Factory) - Now this is very strange. Shout! Factory releases everything very fast. And if it doesn't sell too well, they put it on their Shout! Select titles (which are sold only on their website). But not for this show yet, the first set had the first two seasons on DVD and was released well over a year ago (Jan. 27, 2009). Three seasons are left to be released.
  • The Bob Newhart Show (20th Century Fox) - The fourth season DVD was released nearly 4 years ago (Sept. 19, 2006). Only two more seasons left to be released. There was word of a complete series set some years back, but nothing yet.
  • Boy Meets World (ABC/Disney) - The last set released was season three nearly 5 years ago (Aug. 23, 2005), but ABC/Disney said sales were not too good. They licensed the series to Lionsgate and word is that the fourth season will be out on DVD in the fall...so stay tuned! Good news at least! Four seasons are left to be released, including that fourth season.
  • Coach (Universal Home Video) - The third season was released over two years ago (Feb. 19, 2008). They were coming out at a steady pace before that. Sales must have dipped. Universal should license the series to Shout! like they have with other series (Leave it to Beaver, Dragnet, Adam-12). A hefty six seasons are left to be released.
  • Dave's World (CBS Home Video) - It's been over a year (Feb. 3, 2009) since the second season came out on DVD. I was surprised we even got a second season, though. Only two more seasons are left to be released.
  • Dharma & Greg (20th Century Fox) - The first season was released four years ago (June 13, 2006). Could it be another low selling series for Fox or the more likely music excuse? Four seasons are left to be released.
  • Diff'rent Strokes (Sony Pictures) - The second season was released over four years ago (Jan. 31, 2006). Where is the third season? Gary Coleman just passed away and Sony still hasn't done anything about continuing? They could license the series to Shout! Factory and have them continue the series like they did with Facts of Life. A hefty six more seasons are left to be released. Whatchu talkin' about, Sony?
  • A Different World (UrbanWorks) - The first season was released so long ago that UrbanWorks was renamed to First Look Entertainment. It's been nearly 5 years (Nov. 8, 2005), since the first season was released. Five more seasons are left to be released.
  • Dream On (Universal Home Video) - The first set was a seasons one and two set and it was released nearly six years ago (Oct. 12,2004). Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • The Drew Carey Show (Warner Home Video) - Season one came out over three years ago (April 24, 2007). The previous year (Feb. 28, 2006) Warner tried a best-of set to test the waters, so it must have done well to get a season one set but that set must have bombed like most Warner series. A startling eight seasons are left to be released.
  • 8 Simple Rules (Lionsgate) - It hasn't been too long, but it has been over a year since the second season came out from Lionsgate (May 19, 2009). Season one was done by ABC/Disney on Aug. 7, 2007. Only one more season is left to be released, so hopefully later this year.
  • Evening Shade (CBS Home Video) - Only the first season was released and it has been about 2 years now (July 15, 2008) since it came out. Three more seasons are left to be released.
  • Family Ties (CBS Home Video) - Uh oh, it's been over a year since the fifth season came out (March 10, 2009). CBS was going by quickly previously. What happened? Let's hope they continue later this year. Only two more seasons are left to be released, so let's finish it CBS! Sha la la la!
  • The Flying Nun (Sony Pictures) - Oh come on Sony, only more season is left to be released of this three-season show. The second season came out nearly four years ago (Aug. 15, 2006). They didn't even take advantage of Sally Field's success on Brothers and Sisters.
  • George Lopez (Warner Home Video) - The first set was a seasons one and two set that came out over three years ago (April 17, 2007)! Ta loca! What is taking so long? This show has been a huge hit on Nick at Nite, too. Warner needs to release the remaining seasons ASAP. Four seasons are left to be released.
  • Gimme a Break! (Universal Home Video) - It's been over four years (Feb. 14, 2006) since the first season came out on DVD here in the U.S. Then VEI in Canada released the first and second seasons on DVD after that (May 30, 2006 and Jan. 16, 2007). Nothing more was released, but VEI in Canada is releasing the complete series set next month (July 20, 2010)! All six seasons will be on it. So another good news story, but U.S. needs to get on the ball in continuing this show on DVD!
  • Green Acres (MGM) - It's been nearly 4 1/2 years since the third season came out on DVD (Dec. 6, 2005). Three more seasons are left to be released, so maybe Shout! Factory can license this series like they did with Mister Ed (another MGM product)?
  • Growing Pains (Warner Home Video) - Another culprit of Warner's one set and done. Warner released this first season set on Feb. 7, 2006. However, there is word that the series can continue soon on DVD. So, show me that smile guys! 6 more seasons are left to be released.
  • Happy Days (CBS Home Video) - Music rights are now not an issue for this show. So what is the hold-up? Low sales? The fourth season was released on Dec. 9, 2008. A hefty seven more seasons are still left to be released.
  • Hazel (Sony Pictures) - The first season was released nearly four years ago (Aug. 1, 2006). Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • Hope & Faith (Lionsgate) - It's only been a little over a year since the first set came out (March 31, 2009). So lets hope the final two seasons will be released soon. Have faith!
  • The Jamie Foxx Show (Warner Home Video) - Only the first season was released...over 5 years ago (Feb. 8, 2005). Quiet surprising it hasn't continued with the star power. Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • The Jeffersons (Sony Pictures) -Like its parent series All in the Family, this was stopped after only the sixth season over three years ago (March 27, 2007). Five more seasons are left to be released. Maybe Shout! can license this series and finish it up quickly.
  • Just Shoot Me! (Sony Pictures) - After 5 years, we got a second set (Feb. 24, 2009), but now it's been over a year since the third season set came out. Just shoot me, Sony. Could we expect another 5 years? Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • King of the Hill (20th Century Fox) - This is surprising. The sixth season was the last set released and it has been 4 years (May 2, 2006). Seven more seasons are left to be released.
  • Laverne & Shirley (CBS Home Video) - The last set that came out was the fourth season and it was over two years ago (April 22, 2008). Has CBS given up? Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • Living Single (Warner Home Video) - Like Jamie Foxx, it has been over four years (Feb. 14, 2006) since the first season came out on DVD. Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • Mad About You (Sony Pictures) - Season three came out over three years ago (Feb. 6, 2007) from Sony. But GOOD NEWS! Season 4 is coming out later this month (June 29, 2010) from Shout! Factory.
  • Malcolm & Eddie (Shout! Factory) - It's been only a little over a year since the first season came out (April 14, 2009), but Shout! moves fast and for them this is slow. Three more seasons are left to be released. Maybe as a Shout! Select title at least?
  • Malcolm in the Middle (20th Century Fox) - We are nearing EIGHT years since season one came out (Oct. 29, 2002). That is the longest wait ever and it will continue due to the high cost of music. And six seasons are left to be released...ouch.
  • Mama's Family (Warner Home Video) - Oh boy, it has been nearly four years since Mama came to DVD for its first season. Five more seasons are left to be released.
  • Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (Sony Pictures) - The first 25 episodes came out over three years ago (March 27, 2007). I doubt we will ever finish this show on DVD...there are gazillion episodes.
  • Maude (Sony Pictures) - Over three years ago we got the first season DVD (March 20, 2007) and now nothing since. Even when Bea Arthur passed away we got nothing. God will get you for this, Sony. Five more seasons are left to be released. Again hopefully Sony license it out to Shout!
  • Mork & Mindy (CBS Home Video) - The last set released was the third season back on Nov. 27, 2007. What is the problem? Low sales? Only one season is left to be released, so suck it up and make the fans happy, CBS!
  • Murphy Brown (Warner Home Video) - Over 5 years ago this first season came out on DVD (Feb. 8, 2005). The set sold terribly, so nothing since. A mind blowing nine seasons are left to be released.
  • My Favorite Martian (Rhino) - Oh Rhino, we just need one more season to be finished! The second season came out 5 years ago on May 10, 2005 and then they released a best-of set on Aug. 30, 2005. But why no season 3 yet? That is the final season!
  • The Nanny (Sony Pictures) - Season three was released over a year ago on March 17, 2009, after a three year wait. We don't want another long wait, so let's hope season four is out soon! Three more seasons are left to be released.
  • Ned and Stacey (Sony Pictures) - I couldn't believe Sony released this in the first place, but back then they released everything...and now they release nothing. Almost 5 years have passed since this first season set came out (Sept. 20, 2005). Only one more season is left to be released.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (Warner Home Video) - One season and done. The first season came out two years ago (Jan. 15, 2008) and none since? Wow. Especially since this is a current series (well it just got canceled, but still). Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • Newhart (20th Century Fox) - Like Bob's first series, Fox has left us hanging. But this series only got a first season release (Feb. 26, 2008). 7 more seasons are left to be released, including the series finale.
  • One Day at a Time (Sony Pictures) - Over three years now have passed since the first season came out on DVD (April 24, 2007). Eight more seasons are left to be released and with Valerie Bertinelli on a new sitcom for TV Land, Sony needs to take advantage and release season two!
  • Perfect Strangers (Warner Home Video) - It makes me SO mad that only one set of this series has been released. A seasons one & two set that came out two years ago (Feb. 5, 2008). And Warner has no plans for seasons three and on yet. Why? Don't be ridicoulous and try it! Six more seasons are left to be released.
  • Rules of Engagement (Sony Pictures) - Wow, they can't even continue with this show since it is still on the air? Only two seasons have came out. Sony should be already prepping a fourth season release in time for the fifth season this fall on CBS, but they aren't.
  • Silver Spoons (Sony Pictures) -Another series that didn't continue after one DVD set. Te first season came out on DVD three years ago (June 19, 2007). I think Shout! is the best company to continue this show. Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • Sister, Sister (CBS Home Video) -It's only been a little over a year, but for CBS DVD that is a lot. The season two DVD came out on May 19, 2009. 4 more seasons are left to be released.
  • 'Til Death (Sony Pictures) - Second season came out on DVD on Jan. 13, 2009. Two or three more seasons remain to be released, who knows how many seasons due to Fox's crazy scheduling.
  • Too Close for Comfort (Rhino) - It's been five years since the second season was released (June 7, 2005). Rhino even had everything ready for a third season and then scrapped it Why? Someone else needs to continue to release this underrated show. Four more seasons are left to be released.
  • 227 (Sony Pictures) - How sad we can't continue this show either? First season was released on Sept. 28, 2004, so we are nearing 6 years. No place like continuation, child. Four more seasons are left to be released, child.
  • WKRP in Cincinnati (20th Century Fox) - 3 years ago we finally got this sitcom on DVD (April 27, 2010). But we haven't gotten anything since. Three more seasons remain to be released.
  • The War at Home (Warner Home Video) - We got season one on DVD, three years ago (May 15, 2007). But season two never came...and that's the only season left to be released. Why not finish it Warner?
  • Wayans Bros. (Warner Home Video) - One season and done again. It's been over 5 years (Feb. 8, 2005). Four seasons are left to be released.
  • Weird Science (A&E) - Over two years ago we got the first two seasons on DVD (Jan. 1, 2008). But three more seasons are left to be released.
  • Welcome Back, Kotter (Warner Home Video) - Like Drew Carey, season one (June 12, 2007) came out after a best-of set (Feb. 28, 2006) sold well. But three years later, still no season two. Up your nose with a rubber hose, Warner! Three more seasons are left to be released.
  • What I Like About You (Warner Home Video) - It's been three years (May 1, 2007) since the first season came out on DVD...and nothing since. Three more seasons are left to be released.
  • What's Happening Now!! (Sony Pictures) - Sony gave us the parent series fast, but after just the first season of the follow-up series, we get nothing more. The first season came out on June 12, 2007...so three years have passed. Please give us the final two seasons on DVD, please!
  • Who's the Boss? (Sony Pictures) - This is baffling to me. 6 years ago we started our review program and that's when this show came out on DVD (June 8, 2004). But we have gotten nothing since! Why? It makes no sense. Shout! should take this away from Sony. Seven more seasons remain to be released.

Alice, Chico and the Man and Step by Step got best-of releases from Warner Home Video, but it didn't lead to season sets. It's been years for them (June 27, 2006; Sept. 27, 2005; and June 27, 2006), too.

Look at all of this. This is unacceptable for fans to be hanging like this on all of these sitcoms. This is WAY too much and more than I had thought before I did this story. Let's hope the studios wake-up and see what they have to finish. They can at least give it a try one more time? Sony and Warner seems like the worst ones on this list. CBS and 20th Century also have some titles that need continuing, but nothing as much as Sony and Warner.

Discuss this story with members of our message boards.

LOOKING AHEAD

Next week we have a busy slate of reviews coming up both on the blog and on our regular reviews, so you won't want to miss any of those. We'll have a review of the A&E program Hoarders right here next week. Please bear with us, as our regular Digital Digest blogger skees53 will not be here for a few months. Until next time, keep it digital!
