Fans Speak Out, Warner Listens13 Nov, 2009 By: John Latchem
Back in September, we ran a list of the top 10 TV shows not yet on DVD. The list came courtesy of our friends at TVShowsOnDVD.com.
No. 6 on that list was the 1980s spy romance “Scarecrow and Mrs. King,” starring Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, “Babylon 5”) and Kate Jackson (“Charlie’s Angels”). One reason given for its lack of a DVD release: a perception by the studio that consumers weren’t interested.
Well, I can attest to the fan interest. After running that item, I personally was inundated with calls and e-mails asking for my help in getting the show on DVD.
Apparently someone at the studio listened. I'm happy to report that Warner Home Video will release Scarecrow and Mrs. King: The Complete First Season March 9 (prebook Feb. 2) as a five-DVD set for $39.98.
If only the 1960s “Batman” series were that easy to get on DVD.
