NBC (ended 2007)
|I think it's a matter of consumer demand as well. The 13 episodes are a pretty complete story arc. Shows like Drive & Vanished won't get DVD releases because their story arcs were incomplete.|
Actually, Vanished had a complete (if horribly rushed) conclusion. However, it was never aired on FOX. It was only available for download from FOX's website. They reshot scenes in episodes 11-13 so that they could wrap the series and then posted those episodes on the website.
I would love to have all those episodes on DVD, though, since I didn't get a chance to download the last episodes.
|Where were you able to download the episodes at all? This would have been nice to know a long time ago...|
I'm not sure I understand the question. Did you mean the ending episodes for Vanished? Like I said, I never got around to downloading them. They were only on FOX's website for a limited amount of time and I found out about it right after they took the episodes down. I thought they would eventually release the 13 episodes on DVD so I wasn't that concerned at the time. But, now it doesn't seem like the show will ever be released so I'm annoyed.
A brief (one sentence each) summary is available for each of the final episodes by going HERE. And I also learned by checking there that supposedly the final episodes DID air in other parts of the world (Latin America, at least).
|Oh, I thought that you had meant that you downloaded the other episodes, besides the last one that is. I had no idea that they could have been downloaded from the website...wish I would have gotten the chance!|
Actually, the last 3-4 episodes were the only ones available for download. The only reason they did that was because the fans complained that they weren't going to get to see the ending of the show.
It might be difficult for there to be a dvd release. I noticed they used a lot of music to help set the moods for the different times, and they used original artsts/recordings to do so. That's almost always a sticking point in the dvd release of a tv show.It took WKRP years and years because of music rights, and in the end they ruined the relase by substituting the majority of the music.
I for one would love to see someone pick up journeyman for a 'wrap up' Tv movie, maybe on sci fi.
