DVD release date?
30 October 2004 | by solsburydpSee all my reviews

With so many old television programs being released on DVD, I'd love to see this one released. Rarely seen since it's original run, it certainly deserves to be released along with a bunch of other one year wonders. Big market for entertaining programs that lasted one year or less like Pistol's & Petticoats. In my opinion, other great programs to be considered for a DVD release would be unique programs like "The Hero", "Camp Runamuck", and the totally off the wall but very funny "Quark". If a network like "Trio" can find success with their "Brilliant but Cancelled" series, there must be some interest in these strange, unique, and sometimes hilarious programs.
