Sony will release the Jay Mohr comedy series ACTION on February 21st. The set will include all 13 episodes, including the five that were unaired during Fox's original run.

Are there any music rights issues to be concerned with on this?

Do we know if (perhaps only the unaired) episodes will be uncensored? I recall the uncensored Arrested Development extended pilot, so perhaps it's not entirely out of the question.

At least give us a choice, whether we want bleeps or not!

Great news - they were all shown on Trio a few years ago. This was a razor-sharp show that in some ways foreshadowed some aspects of Entourage/

Really loved this show on its first run at Fox and was extremely disappointed when it went off the air. So I'll echo ReduxGuy with "Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Finally! And on the day before my birthday. One of the best series ever along with "Andy Richter Controls the Universe" and "Arrested Development". Of course, they were all cancelled but "Yes, Dear" and "According to Jim" go on year after awful year.

Great show - WAY ahead of its time - even if it was on now, it'd still be ahead of its time.

Me too. I liked this show a lot. I seem to be slowly amassing a collection of good but short-lived TV shows.

So what other "good but short-lived TV shows" do you own?

awesome news if it ends up being true.
I was starting to think it wouldn't ever be released.
