I wonder if they release that copy of the awful video release they show nowadays where they took out all the music and replaced it with generic elevator music, that made the jokes make no sense? It was truly sad and ruined the show. The music is a character in of itself to ground it, and when they took it away, they took much of the greatness of the show away.

One of my favorite moments in the show was the ep in which the team thought that sleazy guy had a video of Jennifer naked and was going to show it in a pron theater. Of course, they had to go and "investigate".

Anyway...when they were all in there the cops busted the place. As they stormed through the door Johnny immediately stood up and threw everything out of his pockets. It was subtle and not the main focus of the shot but very noticeable. I was a little too young to get it first time I saw that ep...but as time went on and I saw it again on some repeat channel I understood immediately why my dad found it funny all those years ago.

Wonder Years is being released by Time-Life, not Shout. And by god, you're paying for that original music, since the set will be $250.

But, it's 96% complete, so you can't biatch too much.

WKRP is still a "wait and see" thing. If it's still too edited, there's no use buying it.

I think it's 80, 90 bucks for the set. Maybe 10 or 20 more if you order it directly from Shiut so you can get it 5 weeks early.

Roughly 25 bucks per season isn't too bad, especially if they get the music right.

This.  Every time I buy an 80's or 70's era sitcom, I'm usually disappointed.  Television tastes have changed too much and these shows usually look like crap nowadays (with a few exceptions).

I'd blame cocaine, but I was in middle school and junior high when these shows were on the air.

Had a blast catching up on this with my wife with the the one DVD that was released before this, but I don't know that I would do it again.  It hasn't aged well.

The music rights thing isn't anyone's fault.  At the time, the show's shelf life was going to be six years of first-run if they were lucky, followed by syndication.  Other electronic rights weren't even a twinkle in someone's eye.

The studio censor was still a big thing then.  Sometimes the bits feel a little like the shows on the Disney Channel now.  You know, Herb can get shot down by Jennifer all day long for yuks, but kissing is verboten.

They look like crap because most 70s and 80s shows were shot on videotape, which means they will never be able to look better than the crappy 480i video they're locked into.

At first I was all like "who buys anything on DVD anymore?", and then I realized by that by today's tech standards, WKRP was made on equipment that's no better in resolution than standard 4:8 videotape anyway, so what's the point of a BR release?

Kind of ironic that a lot of shows may never get a release onto video not because of copyright issues, but the bigshots may think "Our copies are all in non HiDef, so why bother putting it out if all they'll sell in are the $1 bins at a Walmart? There's no profit there."

OTOH, 60s sitcoms that were shot on film (e.g. "Hogan's Heroes") look FANTASTIC in HD. But, yeah, "Hill Street Blues" will probably never get the respect it deserves, because it looks like crap on modern TVs.

You're right.  I don't know why I was thinking Shout.

Either way, the fact there has been some general successes around on DVD licensing lately.  Batman is actually getting a release, which seemed impossible just a year or so ago.  And Shout's been pretty good at clearing MST3K episodes for release.

Although I do agree that if they do get the music licensed, that cost will probably be picked up by the consumer.

I have the first season that got released a few years ago, but it is missing a lot of the music, though they got some rights where they needed to in order for certain jokes to make sense.

Shout! Factory typically does an amazing job at locking down and negotiating for rights and permissions.  This is going into SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! territory.

CarnySaur: and I've heard it's why even a show like Cold Case will have a difficult time being released.


That I don't understand. I mean I get it for shows like wonder years or WKRP where no one would have even thought to secure the music rights for home viewing. But for a show like cold case it should be a no brainer that when you get the damn music rights you get them for broadcast and DVD and online streaming and everything else. Or you pick a different song. How hard is that? Hell I have been watching Raising Hope on Netflix and in the season 2 finale they used You Can't Always Get What you want by the Rolling Stone (played nearly the whole song) and they managed to keep the rights to that song even for netflix. If a low rated show on Fox can get the rights to one of the most famous songs by one of the biggest bands ever, then this kind of thing should no longer be a problem.

Although I do agree that if they do get the music licensed, that cost will probably be picked up by the consumer.


Shout has gotten most of the "you'll never see this episode in DVD" episodes of MST3K cleared and released, and still have a good 4 or 5 volumes of public domain stuff to work with, even if they can't clear another film.

But, they seem to have good relationships with all big 5 companies, so MST3K might make it to DVD almost in its entirety.

Some older shows hold up better than others.  I recently finished re-watching the first two seasons of Starsky & Hutch.  It took a few episodes to get over the overt sexism and lack of computers, cell phones, etc.  but the picture quality was great and Glaser and Soul's chemistry is beyond anything on television now.  I was amazed at how realistic and gritty the story lines were for being forty years old. They tackled drug addiction, rape, even homosexuality.  But the sincerity of the relationship between the two characters is what made the show!!

I loved WKRP, so I'm sure I'll buy the DVDs. Andy was my favorite!!  He was on a S&H episode as a very young and disturbed psychopath.  He was really good!!

/Bailey, please.

There was always a Ginger v. Mary Ann thing going on with them.  I always liked Mary Ann and Bailey better.  More down to earth, and all that.

Plus, The helmet hair thing never did it for me.

Someone upstairs here mentioned Newsradio.

Maura Tierney was the prettiest thing to ever hit a sitcom, IMO

[cdn.smallscreenscoop.com image 550x825]
[4.bp.blogspot.com image 578x708]

However cute she may, or may not, be really has nothing to do with her competence as a journalist.

/Jimmy James is the best sitcom character of all time

That whole cast was amazing.  Newsradio was such an underappreciated sitcom.

/still hate Andy Dick, though


I hate Andy Dick too, but Newsradio was a well-written enough show that even he couldn't muck it up, and occasionally even got the chance to shine. His ventriloquist act at the stupid holiday charity talent show is hilarious.

But none of them live up to the quality TV standards of Quark.  It was the "Firefly" of it's day.

Weirdly, you might be right.

I can't believe that the show hadn't been out on DVD until now.  Some really great stuff.

/Team Bailey


It is already on DVD, at least the first 2 seasons as I own them. And the music is edited.

As for sweet Bailey, there is a Youtube vid of a recent reunion. Alas, she didn't age very well. Jenni-poo looks plastic but still good. Johnny looks like one would expect, Venus looks great. But Bailey shocked me. I was in High School when it was on TV, stay off my lawn.

Kit Fister: Wake me when they release Night Court.


Wake up.  They released Night Court.

It started coming out years ago.  The final season became available I think just last year.  

The bad news is that it is part of WB's MOD selection, so they really put zero effort into it.  You might as well be watching a VHS tape.  One of the discs as originally released for season 2(?) had the audio completely out of sync with the video.

Other than that though, it's still great to watch.  It does hold up pretty well.  I still have bothered with the last couple of seasons however.  I know the show went a bit more off the rails towards the end, so I'm in no rush.

Season 4 had the sync problem. It was one of the WB Archives early TV releases.

And yeah, they're burned, MoD discs for seasons 4-9, unless you buy 'em direct from WB, then you get pressed discs for seasons 6-9.

Alphax: aggievet92: Some older shows hold up better than others.  I recently finished re-watching the first two seasons of Starsky & Hutch.  It took a few episodes to get over the overt sexism and lack of computers, cell phones, etc.  but the picture quality was great and Glaser and Soul's chemistry is beyond anything on television now.  I was amazed at how realistic and gritty the story lines were for being forty years old. They tackled drug addiction, rape, even homosexuality.  But the sincerity of the relationship between the two characters is what made the show!!

I loved WKRP, so I'm sure I'll buy the DVDs. Andy was my favorite!!  He was on a S&H episode as a very young and disturbed psychopath.  He was really good!!

I was very young when Starsky & Hutch was on the air.. I thought that being a 'Junkie' meant that you had a disease that left marks on your arms..


Tried to watch some of "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and it's exactly the opposite.

The writers tried to throw in all the taboo stuff at once for shock value, but by today's standards most of it doesn't raise an eyebrow. There's one sequence where Mary talks to her husband about his impotence that probably wouldn't fly today.  The rest has been done to death in the last 30 years: affairs, serial killers, pervy family members, etc.

The acting is terrible.  At first it's kind of funny because Louise Lasser is visibly stoned in almost every scene, but eventually it just gets repetitive.

Yep.  And while he was tolerable in News Radio, he was only worthwhile as a foil to Bill.  Anything he did that wasn't related to Bill's character was mostly a miss.

TV's Vinnie: At first I was all like "who buys anything on DVD anymore?", and then I realized by that by today's tech standards, WKRP was made on equipment that's no better in resolution than standard 4:8 videotape anyway, so what's the point of a BR release?

Kind of ironic that a lot of shows may never get a release onto video not because of copyright issues, but the bigshots may think "Our copies are all in non HiDef, so why bother putting it out if all they'll sell in are the $1 bins at a Walmart? There's no profit there."


These are the same people who scream for a 24 MP APSC camera. That the resolution maxes out in the high teens is lost on them. Yaaaay! More blurrier pixels so I can pretend I have a higher resolution camera! Next up, people who want WKRP with black bars top and bottom so they can pretend it was shot in 16:9.

The first season of "WKRP" was actually issued on DVD several years ago by 20th Century Fox;
however, no additional seasons were issued after that - mainly, I think, because of music-clearance
disputes.  Whoever is now in charge of the series (I'm presuming it's Shout Factory, since they took
over the Bob Newhart DVDs from Fox) will probably now issue a "Complete Series" release -
although it'll probably be priced around $125.00 or so.

The fact that an AM station would've been playing "Dogs" by Pink Floyd is a silly enough idea. It is a great scene. I saw an edited version without Floyd, and it made no farkin' sense. They cut the hell out of the scene. I have a crappy copy of the original and that will have to suffice, because it's farkin' Floyd!!

It was released on DVD once before (season by season) and they said that while they couldn't get the rights to most of the music they would replace the terrible rerun music with something more suitable. Not sure how that turned out.

I have heard that you can get WKRP with all original music intact on VHS. My research further indicates that there are (probably illegal) companies that will sell you DVD's of these VHS. Probably astoundingly bad quality..

But they all fall between 8 and 9.9 on a scale of 0-10

But none of them live up to the quality TV standards of Quark.  It was the "Firefly" of it's day.

Weirdly, you might be right.

I can't believe that the show hadn't been out on DVD until now.  Some really great stuff.

/Team Bailey

It is already on DVD, at least the first 2 seasons as I own them. And the music is edited.

As for sweet Bailey, there is a Youtube vid of a recent reunion. Alas, she didn't age very well. Jenni-poo looks plastic but still good. Johnny looks like one would expect, Venus looks great. But Bailey shocked me. I was in High School when it was on TV, stay off my lawn.


Quark only ran for 8 episodes.

JohnnyCanuck: One of my favorite moments in the show was the ep in which the team thought that sleazy guy had a video of Jennifer naked and was going to show it in a pron theater. Of course, they had to go and "investigate".

Anyway...when they were all in there the cops busted the place. As they stormed through the door Johnny immediately stood up and threw everything out of his pockets. It was subtle and not the main focus of the shot but very noticeable. I was a little too young to get it first time I saw that ep...but as time went on and I saw it again on some repeat channel I understood immediately why my dad found it funny all those years ago.


Sorry, can you explain it for my sleep deprivation?

SirEattonHogg: ZAZ:  And then I'll buy it and be disappointed because the reality of watching old sitcoms does not live up to my memory of them.

This.  Every time I buy an 80's or 70's era sitcom, I'm usually disappointed.  Television tastes have changed too much and these shows usually look like crap nowadays (with a few exceptions).

I'd blame cocaine, but I was in middle school and junior high when these shows were on the air.


You're the first person I know of who attended both.

Crudbucket:

However cute she may, or may not, be really has nothing to do with her competence as a journalist.

/Jimmy James is the best sitcom character of all time


Agreed. The crazy billionaire has never been done remotely as well in all of history. Right from episode one, Stephen Root ate that character alive in spectacular fashion. I could never get enough. And his interactions with Joe are priceless. So much in that show.

I'm surprised my parents let me watch WKRP. I'm only 31, so back then I didn't get the jokes. By the time Night Court was in reruns, my parents knew I'd start getting the adult humor and they were right. I'll never forget the pervert with the tiny theatre sewn to the front of his pants, the female performer covered in baloons for popping, the box that vibrated so hard it moved, or the red handprints on two women's backsides.

Ian Wolfe, who played Hirsch, has a hell of a filmography. Had I been on set, I think I would have been following him around begging for stories. The guy had a 7-decade career in show business. He worked with Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Hitchcock, Errol Flynn, Spencer Tracy, Brando, Marlene Dietrich and on and on. He was in one of my favorite noirs, "They Live by Night." He appeared in "The Lone Ranger," "The Twilight Zone," "Night Gallery," "Bonanza," "Gunsmoke," "Perry Mason," "Star Trek," "Soap," "Barney Miller," basically every show ever. What a career.

YES!!!!! I remember that picture. I brought that in one day to senior English class and it created a giant ruckus, as you could imagine at an all-boys Jesuit school.

Yes it was released on DVD with altered (but better than syndicated) music a few years ago. That is likely what you have. Unless you have bootleg versions you do not have the original music. This new Shoutfactory release looks like it will be the closest we will likely ever get to the original broadcast, in a legal release.

2014-08-15 12:38:28 PM  
Many years ago I managed to acquire the full series with the original music, some of the quality wasn't the greatest but better it be slightly fuzzy & make sense (Hot Blooded, Tiny Dancer, Dogs, etc) than quite clear & random elevator music. Growing up my kids all loved that show & watched it at least 6-8 times all the way through.  Each of them has come home with a story about one of their teachers doing a double take when they in class quoted or made reference to 'KRP in context to whatever was going on at the time.  I was quite proud.

He periodically plays a  rather eccentric judge on Justified.  A touch of the same wackiness.

I have the season one, and have seen episodes of other seasons here and there on TV since. It's fun for me since I worked at WEBN while attending Univ. of Cincinnati. The only episode I have a hard time watching is the one where Carlson takes his son to a rock concert and he was so excited about it the following morning, when the staff tells him what happened at the concert.

It was the December 3, 1979 concert of The Who at Riverfront Coliseum, where 11 people were killed.

I was at that concert. It was a birthday present from a friend. Like Mr. Carlson, we didn't know what happened until the next day at school.

Whoah, I grew up listening to 'EBN before it was Clearchannel; the Bob the Producer days. I remember the classical Sunday mornings. To this day I hear things people describe as "unknown", "lost" or "deep tracks" and just think "BS. I heard that on the radio plenty."

It isn't the RIAA, it's people who own the rights to music either having huge sticks up their asses (Pink Floyd, at one time), or wanting huge sums of money that would basically require all profits to be handed over just for the rights to the song.

Remember, it cost $250,000 to get a minute or so of the Beatles on Mad Men.

/the UK has more sane music rights laws, which is why it's a shame WKRP wasn't a hit over there... the series would have been released intact in R2 ages ago and people could have just imported it.

Cockpuncher to the Stars: LonMead: I have the season one, and have seen episodes of other seasons here and there on TV since. It's fun for me since I worked at WEBN while attending Univ. of Cincinnati. The only episode I have a hard time watching is the one where Carlson takes his son to a rock concert and he was so excited about it the following morning, when the staff tells him what happened at the concert.

It was the December 3, 1979 concert of The Who at Riverfront Coliseum, where 11 people were killed.

I was at that concert. It was a birthday present from a friend. Like Mr. Carlson, we didn't know what happened until the next day at school.

Whoah, I grew up listening to 'EBN before it was Clearchannel; the Bob the Producer days. I remember the classical Sunday mornings. To this day I hear things people describe as "unknown", "lost" or "deep tracks" and just think "BS. I heard that on the radio plenty." I didn't know they were playing stuff no one else had on their ridiculous corporate-approved playlist, and how rare that was.


Yeah, I was there in the early to mid-80's, when the DJ's were more or less allowed to program their own shows (only requirements: you had to make your ad time, and you had to be clear for the time checks at the top and bottom of the hour). The format was AOR, but we played pretty much whatever we wanted.

Well thank you for that. It instilled in me a lifelong knowledge and love of a range of music that I don't think I would have gotten from listening to the same forty songs over and over.

Good lord I haven't thought of that in years.  Radio was fun back then, too bad we didn't realize what we had until it was gone, I would have listened more (certainly more Burbank on 700, only really listened the last 4 years or so).  But from Plummet Mall to the Fool's Day Parade to Wild Man up on the roof (I worked across the street from him at that time at about the same height & kept throwing paper airplanes at him to piss him off).

Good times, it's sad how cookie cutter corporate crap things have become over the years.  They may be able to squeeze a few hundred dollars in profit from the station every year but they lost so much in doing so.

/still have 3/4ths of the Album Projects deep in my archives.  I need to dig them out & give them a listen.  There were some absolute dogs on there but there were some great songs too - Jay's Bus Full of Nuns Holding Babies springs instantly to mind.

Thank you. In a bizarre twist of events and for no reason at all that I am aware of  * that phrase went thru my head this afternoon on the way home, long before I knew of this 'KRP news.

Who says lightning doesn't strike twice?

Speaking of 1970s hotties, does anyone remember the kids' show Secrets of Isis (paired with "Shazam!")...

Even my dad remarked on how hot she was.

How about some Erin Gray, Linda Carter, Adrienne Barbeau and Pam Dawber?  Jan is still my fav, but there's more than enough sloppy seconds to keep me happy!

Bukharin: GRCooper: Couplings "The Girl with Two Breasts" as the funniest episodes evar

I prefer "inferno" but that is my #2 Coupling episode.
That was a great show.


Love that episode and Sex,d Death and Nudity:
Jane (yelling at Steve from the sidewalk): What the hell do you take me for, Steve? I'm not trying to lure you back into bed with my dead aunt! The next night... Susan (yelling from the sidewalk, to Steve): Oh, for Christ's sake! Anyone can have a dead aunt!

Easily one of TV's top 15 funniest moments.

harrycary: Just uploaded the pilot on Pirate Bay. Part 1 of a 2 part episode.

Original VHS recording with no commercials and original music.

If there's interest, I will upload more. (I have them all)

https://thepiratebay.se/torrent/10778956


What some industrious person needs to do is rip the DVDs, demux the audio from them and remux with the audio from the VHS copies.  As long as they sync you'd get the cleaned up DVD picture with the original audio...

good gravy, that woman could wear jeans.


Jesus, yes. She edges out Pam Dawber by the tiniest of margins in the 'hottest female co-star in a '70s sitcom' category.

Maura Tierney was the prettiest thing to ever hit a sitcom, IMO

She was great in one of the later seasons of Rescue Me as Tommys g/f.

/Bailey, please.

There was always a Ginger v. Mary Ann thing going on with them.  I always liked Mary Ann and Bailey better.  More down to earth, and all that.

Plus, The helmet hair thing never did it for me.

Someone upstairs here mentioned Newsradio.

However cute she may, or may not, be really has nothing to do with her competence as a journalist.

/Jimmy James is the best sitcom character of all time


That was great. I could watch Newsradio clips all day.

I went to an Outlaws/Molly Hatchet concert in Portland ME within a week or so after that incident. It was eerie; pre-show it was like everyone was walking on eggshells.

feanorn: gfid: IamKaiserSoze!!!: Cheers>News Radio>Barney Miller>WKRP

But they all fall between 8 and 9.9 on a scale of 0-10

No.  I'll go with Barney Miller > WKRP, but the other 2 don't even come close.

So, how was Woodstock?


I don't remember.

/if you say you remember Woodstock, you weren't really there, man.
