Back in early 2008, Warner Home Video released The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons
on DVD...a title which continues to be available over nine years later. But since then there have been no additional releases for the 8-season-long sitcom starring Bronson Pinchot and Mark Linn-Baker. Why not? Later in 2008, Warner informed us that the primary hold-up was "higher music costs," along with related factors, and since then nothing seemed to have changed.
However, this past Saturday, we were pleased to see that the Warner Archive Collection had a GREAT response to a question asked by a follower of their Facebook page! Christopher Hernadez asked, "Any word on when more Perfect Strangers tv series will be coming?
" The Warner Archive responded
with this terrific bit of info:
"The wait will soon be over for PERFECT STRANGERS. We will be releasing the rest of the series on DVD, with a formal announcement soon to come."
Christopher had also inquired about the Tony Randall-starring show, Love Sidney
, and Warner responded that there would be nothing new to report at the moment on that front. That's too bad for Sidney
fans; we'll keep an eye out for a change in that situation.
But in the meantime, the thousands of fans we have at TVShowsOnDVD who have waited almost a decade for this news, it's time to celebrate! Enjoy your fireworks and parade extra-hard tomorrow. And celebrate an immigrant to the United States, from the Mediterranean island of Mypos...one Balki Bartokomous. "America or Burst!"
Don't forget that Warner Archive releases are sold online, and not in stores, as manufacture-on-demand (MOD) DVDs.Is this the last we'll tell you about the matter? Well, of course not, don't be ridi-cool-us. Stay tuned, and we'll update you as further developments occur!
