5.0 out of 5 stars Warner Brothers displays a total disregard for the consumer market.....again!, April 2, 2007
This review is from: Murphy Brown: Season 1 (DVD)
Warner Brothers is up to their usual old tricks that they like to play on the American consumer. On the website [...] an article appeared on June 17th, 2006 stating that because of low sales of Murphy Brown-Season One they have no intention at all of releasing any more seasons of the Emmy winning show, ever!

In other reviews I have spoke of Warner's negligence and lack of integrity in other facets of DVD production and releases, so this does not surprise me in the least.

It's quite apparent that Warner Brothers has become a company whose only interest is the bottom line! From their cheap DVD cases made of cardboard to their disinterest in producing a quality product, it's evident that Warners only interest is to squeeze as much money out of the consumer as it can, and as cheaply as possible, thus treating the consumer as complete utter fools!

Some serious changes need to be made in upper management of the company if this is ever going to end!

Therefore I urge as many people as possible to do what I have done the past couple of years. A complete boycott of all Warners material in the theatre as well as on DVD! Let them eat it as they have made US all eat it in recent years with their childish, infantile marketing strategies geared to idiots! Don't give them the satisfaction of making money being lazy and incompetent! Make them get off their slacking butts and start WORKING for the money! Make 'em sweat!!

Until they wake up and start recognizing that we're not as stupid as they think we are, they'll continue to pull dumb tricks like this!

Until they continue the release of subsequent seasons of Murphy Brown and other shows they've left hanging.....they're DIRT!

It's interesting (a polite way of saying "pathetic") that some of the greatest TV comedies have not been fully released to DVD. Sony has taken "forever" to release just three seasons of "Barney Miller", and I'm not sure that all of "All In the Family" has appeared. Given the relatively low cost of assembling the shows into a package, * this is incomprehensible. You probably wouldn't need to sell more than 20,000 sets to break even.

* I'm assuming the original material is in good shape and doesn't need extensive restoration.

What I understand, is that one of the issues is according to the WB, "the high cost of paying royalties for the music." There were a lot of classic Mo-town hits as part of this show, I guess WB doesn't want to pay the money to be able to use those songs on DVD. I have a hard time believing many for those songs are that much, but even talking out of my hat and if that is the case, I for one would be ok if some of them were switched just so we can get more season of this show!

I know, I know, I rather get original versions mostly for classic shows myself, but I'd rather at least get the show then have nothing at all!

The first season of "WKRP in Cincinatti" required extensive replacement of music because the original selections could not be licensed.
