It's not a trick! Home Theater Forum member "Steve...O" posted
info he was relaying from Carl Birkmeyer's Get Smart
Yahoo Group, in which he passes along information that says that DVDs are on-the-way for 2006, and that HBO has been confirmed as the studio which will provide it.
According to the blurb, the studio has given the project to one of the best DVD producers, who is striving to provide uncut episodes as well as bonus material that fans should be pleased with. Birkmeyer also runs the WouldYouBelieve.com website, and has updated the "FAQ" page
with a shorter version of that announcement.
Why HBO? As we stated in our last news update
, Birkmeyer had told us at the time that HBO ought to be the current property owner due to their production of the 1995 Get Smart remake series starring Don Adams, Barbara Feldon, and Andy Dick. We assume that he followed up on that line of inquiry and got the information he's so happily providing!
We couldn't be more pleased at this information ourselves (I started to dance around the room, but Gord reminded me that "Zis is TVShowsOnDVD; ve don't dance around rooms here!"). We're trying to find out more, so stay tuned and we'll update you just as soon as we can.
