Ed on DVD???

Does anyone know if the NBC show Ed will be released on DVD??

I couldn't do a search since "Ed DVD" is too short for a search...

thanks,

www.stuckeyville.com has some good info re: this. Basically, when the show was created, it was decided that no DVD releases could occur until one year after the series ended.

It's a pretty safe assumption that this 4th season will the the last, so early 2005 would be my guess for a DVD release.

And so, because YOU think it is a horrible, then it shouldn't be released at all...not even for all of the people who are the opinion that it is a great show? My, don't we think highly of ourselves.

Yeah, I know this is a threadcrap, but I couldn't help it. The comment they made was totally uncalled for.

Granted, I see what this says...but that was FOUR years ago. TV on DVD wasn't as big an industry as its become...

Hopefully, they'll change their minds about this and release 'em sooner.

Least, that's what i'm hoping.

There have been posts re: that fact on stuckeyville.com, and it's part of their contract agreement that the producers apparently haven't been able to get out of.

Well I guess that would be the silver lining on the cloud if NBC did cancel it after this season, at least we'd get our dvds sooner They certainly are cutting this season very short.

To clear up a few things.

How long the show is on the air doesn't necessarily say when it will be on DVD. Look at ALIAS and 24.

And there is no consensus that this will be its last year. It has been doing well in the ratings and with critics (don't know why some of those here don't like it, guess they aren't watching it as it is the most Lettermanesque sitcom on the air).

A few months back, when the NBC / Lion's Gate TV deal was announced this was one of the titles mentioned for being released on DVD. But since then, and NBC buying Universal, that may have changed things.

So, no official news yet, but it is likely in the future.

And as for this season, the season isn't over. It was on last week and this week. Then, it is going back to Fridays where it did well last season. Donald Trump's show is taking the Wednesday slot.
