I'd just like to add that I'm aware season 1 is on DVD, as I own it. I also know that VHS rips of TVLand broadcasts are available and being sold constantly. However, the DVDs would be uncut and of a far better quality; no annoying picture quality and no tape hiss/noise. Also, I think Sony once mentioned that Bea Arthur and Adrienne Barbeau recorded commentaries for further seasons.
I think it is silly, especially in a world of internet streaming services, that you cant just format and release the entire show. I am a child of the 80's with a penchant for shows from the 70's. I really loved the first season of maude, and want to see the rest.
