Why no Andy Richter Controls the Universe?

I found Andy Richter Controls the Universe to be quite funny. It had a great cast and wonderful writing, but still isn't available on DVD.

This show would be perfect for DVD release because, in addition to the 19 episodes that were shown by Fox, there are 5 unreleased episodes just waiting to be viewed by fans.

Anyone else want this show?

Count me in. I found the show to be hilarious. For some reason, Amazon.com has a link to a dvd release of the show (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...5818?v=glance). Could be a placeholder - possibly a sign of good things to come?

I'd love to own this show on DVD. If there were only 24 episodes produced, it could easily be released as a 6-disc set. Who owns the rights?

Paramount owns the show. If they did it they would probably release it in airdate order (which wasn't correct), and without extras. Blah.

Thanks for your very valuable opinion. I thought the show was freakin' hilarious and would love to own the too-brief complete series.

Wasn't this a 30-minute show? Three discs would be enough.

My bad. Actually, if it's Paramount they'll probably go with 4 discs. Sony would be cheap about it and stuff all the episodes on 3 discs.

Thanks for pointing this out. Perhaps Amazon knows something we don't, but soon will!!

I'd be interested as well. Never saw it but read favorable opinions of it.

Anyone that wants to check it out it is currently running on one of the HD channels from the cable co. HDNet or Bravo or something. Can't remember.

Sadly, Amazon knows jack sh!t. Look at the "release date."

This title will be released on December 31, 1969. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.

Yes, you read it right... it came out on December 31 of 1969. Before VHS was even invented, before the show even aired, it was already available on DVD!

Gord over at TVShowsonDVD.com posted an explanation of this phenomenan, and why Amazon.com are worthless bastards for doing it:

Lol I didn't check the release date on that page. I knew Amazon was just blowing steam up my ass with that listing.

It was a really good show. I'd buy it in a second.

[wishful thinking]If it does ever come out, I hope we get commentaries on all episodes. [/wishful thinking]

HDNet had been airing the series (including the unaired episodes) in high-definition until recently. If you have access to HDNet, keep an eye on their schedule -- it'll probably pop up again soon.
