Soon... Soon...

Some of my all-time favorite TV shows have been on Fox. Many of them all too briefly.

Call it a conspiracy, call it ineptitude, call it whatever. Many good shows on that network end up in lousy time slots, or getting shuffled around, or sometimes, through no fault of the network, simply never get a following. I'm sometimes still amazed that the X-Files was able to last as long as it did.

DVD has allowed some of these shows new life. It's possible for an entire short lived show to end up in a cheap DVD box set, whatever the original network. My wife introduced me to Sports Night this way. She then bought me the entire series of Firefly. A quick browsing on Amazon indicated that Space: Above & Beyond has gotten the same treatment. There has been one notable show, however, that has, up until recently, been forgotten.

When I first heard, more than 10 years ago, that Bruce Campbell was being given his own television series, I was overjoyed. The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. did not dissapoint. The show just seemed to have one great character after another. I enjoyed every episode more and more.

Unfortunately, it was not to be. The show was cancelled after only 27 episodes. This show seemed a perfect candidate for DVD release. I have long wondered how long it would take.

Finally, it is at hand. Bruce Campbell announced on his website that Warner Bros. is planning on releasing it on DVD. No official announcement has yet been made., however, has posted a poll. Warner Bros. has given them 2 possible DVD covers, and they're asking people to vote. If you haven't checked out this show yet - do so.
