New TV on DVD releases this week

M.A.N.T.I.S.Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Wow ... M.A.N.T.I.S.! Remember this show? It lasted for 23 episodes on FOX back in 1994-95. I had completely forgotten that it starred Carl Lumley from Alias as the superhero. I didn't think it would ever come out on DVD (or maybe I should say I didn't really think of it at all in the past few years), and now here it is with a complete series set. By the way, the letters stand for Mechanically Automated NeuroTransmitter Interactive System.

As for The Love Boat, I knew that was going to be out on DVD, but I'm not going to buy it.

  • The All-New Superfriends Hour - Season 1, Vol. 2
  • Blossom - Seasons 1 and 2
  • Cheers - Season 11
  • The Invaders - Season 2
  • The Love Boat - Season 2, Vol. 1
  • M.A.N.T.I.S. - Complete Series
  • Meerkat Manor - Season 4
  • The Pink Panther Show - Classic Cartoon Collection
  • Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? - Vol. 1
  • SpongeBob SquarePants - Spongicus
  • You're A Good Sport Charlie Brown - Remastered

As it turns out, I was "Co-Executive Producer" of M.A.N.T.I.S. (and the person who came up with what the acronymn stood for). I haven't seen the DVD. Last year, I worked with the company that released THE CROW: STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN to get them behind-the-scenes, dailies, gag reels, etc. I offered to help this company several times by email, writing to multiple people at their site, and never even received the courtesy of a reply. I'm curious to see what they've done with it.

Wow! I used watch mantis. I was 11 years old and I loved that show. I'd forgotten all about it.

I remember M.A.N.T.I.S. !! I liked that show. Now if they'd only release VIPER on DVD I'd be set!
