The only funny thing from The New WKRP In Cincinnatti...
Finally finished the first season DVD. Annoying, as expected, the obvious music changes, but nice to see the bits I haven't seen for 24 years that were cut for time in the syndicated episodes. As for the music, look, I have The Muppet Show and there were waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more music rights to be cleared for that DVD release. This even includes a Beatles song! I know a couple episodes were shortened because of this music rights stuff, but most shows are complete. And it was $30.
I listened to the commentary for The "Weird Al" Show, and all the non-Al music was there. And Al said he even had to clear the rights for HIS OWN songs to release the show on DVD. And it was $25. I know that was only 13 episodes, but still.
So, come on! What's the deal? Quit butchering my WKRP so much! It clearly can be mostly done and for $30 each DVD set.
Money-grubbing FOX weiners!
Someone said they'd like to edit together the FOX release and the syndicated episodes to make a DVD set as they first aired. If done I will buy that sum-bitch right away! (Well, I'll send money for blank DVDs, shipping, and a couple bucks for time and effort.)
