New TV on DVD releases this week

WingsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Wings is really one of the more underrated sitcoms of all-time. It bopped along for eight seasons in various time slots and never got any real critical acclaim, but it was a very likable show, entertaining and with some really well-written characters. And now they've released it in a box set, which means I have to go out and buy it. That's happening more and more with shows nowadays: after the single seasons have been released, they come out with a complete set. This irritates some people who have bought the single season sets, but I'm not quite sure what fans expect.

  • Cranford - Complete Miniseries (Blu-Ray)
  • Death Note - Box Set, Vol. 2
  • Exosquad - Season 1
  • Knot's Landing - Season 2
  • Malcolm & Eddie - Season 1
  • The Mary Higgins Clark Collection - Murder, Mystery & Suspense
  • Ruth Rendell Mysteries - Set 4
  • Skins - Vol. 2
  • Wings - Season 8 and Complete Series
  • Wolverine and The X-Men - Season 1, Chapter 1 (Limited Edition)

Let me see if I can explain the irritation factor. A lot of studios base the continued release of series on how well the previous seasons have sold. Therefore, a lot of somebodies need to buy on a season-by-season basis to keep the series coming out.

However, once the entire series comes out, the studio is likely to release a full-series package which a) is sold at a much lower price point, b) includes bonus material unavailable in the season-by sets or c) both of the above. Now if you'd done your bit to keep the series coming out, wouldn't you consider that a bit of a slap?

Looks like nothing for me this week, at least from the new release list.

I've always equated Wings with Murphy Brown. Both shows seemed to hang around forever and I could never understand why as both had some of the most annoying, unlikeable characters I've ever encountered.

I held off buying Wings until the complete set came out. I agree with you that it is such an underrated show that never got the respect it deserved.
