THIRTYSOMETHING is not on DVD yet.
What's up with that? The show was pretty big, wasn't it?
How dare they not have every single television show, ever, available for rent on DVD? How am I going to do my research???

I'm still waiting for Turbo Teen.
Actually I have no idea if that is on DVD or not, I just saw the intro on Youtube and it takes the cake for the most idiotic show concept to ever make it to television.
My pet peeve is the lack of Stark raving Mad on DVD. I have to do with a set that a friend made with someone he knew that is a third or fourth generation VHS dub.
I've always found it odd that Peter Horton's short-lived series BRIMSTONE, in which the main character's a dead cop who hunts down escapees from Hell to clear his account with the Devil, hasn't been put on sale when it's so often cited and imitated in the making of other shows.
But it's the original black-and-white Popeyes that I really want to see. Apparently there's been some preparation and restoration work on the materials, but release has been held up by the same kind of turf dispute that's kept the old BATMAN TV show in limbo.
I have this book of thirtysomething scripts, and recommend it --
Thirtysomething Stories, available used on Amazon.
It includes an intro by Herskovitz and Zwick that probably resembles parts of the show bible, and 9 scripts. One is by Liberty Godshall, who also wrote for Once and Again, including one of my favorite eps, "There Be Dragons," which is available on the 1st season DVD.
