Everyone's been all a-twitter (not a-Twitter, but probably that, too) about the possibility that there will be a feature film version of MacGyver, the TV series starring Richard Dean Anderson as a master of mechanical improv. While that sounds okay, I guess, it also sounds a little, I dunno, dull. If it were up to me, I'd totally greenlight a movie version of the 1986 TV series The Wizard.
A few months ago we lamented some shows that weren't on DVD, but now it's summer and we're lacking substantive shows to watch this time of year. We'd love to retreat into a box set of an old favorite. Sadly some classic (and not-so classic) shows aren't available on DVD (at least legally). It is sort of crazy, because we can get all of Saved by the Bell: The New Class, 'Til Death, Seventh Heaven and Home Improvement, but yet The Wonder Years isn't available. Most delays are due to rights issues or companies that owned them went out of business, but still, we'd like to see someone figure it out and get these seasons out to us, stat.
