Default Hey lovelies!

Where did everybody go?!
Well, I just wanted to drop by and tell y'all about what I found last night. Have any of you heard of the social network, Get Glue? In case you haven't, it's a site where you can go and mark things you like and the more things you like and the more times you check in on them, you earn stickers. Once you have earned 20 stickers, they will send you copies of the stickers you've earned (if you order them!)
Guess what I found!?!?
They have a page for Million Dollar Ripoff, a page for Freddie himself and a page for Chico And The Man. I'm not totally sure, but I've seen mentioned that Get Glue hits CAN influence ratings of certain shows and possibly even DVD releases. Point is......IF we can show a big following for these things......maybe it could help us to get the DVD we all want. Couldn't hurt, right? So, if you get a chance, drop by Get Glue and start marking Freddie and the gang.......maybe this way can help us get what we want!

Smile Hi, I'm still here!

I'll check out the site too. I'll do anything I have to in order to get the entire series of Chico and The Man on DVD. I'm curious about the movie Million Dollar Rip Off too.

Default I'm confused

I went to the Get Glue website and I don't see anything on there that has to do with Freddie Prinze, Chico and The Man or Million Dollar Rip Off. Where did you see it? I looked everywhere on the site.

Smile Hi

Thank you for helping me. I started a GetGlue account and I checked in to the Freddie sites. I'll keep checking in as often as I can. Anything to get the entire series on DVD. Thank you for letting us know about GetGlue. Oh by the way, the posts I made have a picture of an adorable dog next to them. It's not my dog. It's a picture that was given to my account.

Smile Hi

You can follow me. I don't mind. I followed you too. Pretty soon, I'll be replacing the Dog with my picture. I updated my profile. With my name and a short Biography. Now that I've done that, will my name show next to my posts instead of the word "You"? Or do I have to upload my picture first? I noticed one of the things you said you liked was I Love Lucy. I like that show too. The Lucy Show that was on from 1963 to 1968 is good too. I have that on DVD. Well, I'm headed to GetGlue right now. Hopefully we can get enough hits to let Warner Brothers know how much we want Chico and The Man. I noticed Chico and The Man episodes are up on youtube again. Do you know why TV Land stopped showing it?

I decided to upload a photo of a nice Fall Day instead. I was wondering why the picture of the Dog stays next to my posts. Since I uploaded the Fall Day picture, I would think that picture would show up next to my posts. Am I doing something wrong? The new picture is in my profile but when I check in on something, next to my post the Dog shows up.

On your next log-in it should show your new picture.That's how mine did anyway. It will show your name too, but probably on your next log-in. Don't worry!
I don't know 100% why TVLand quit showing Chico other than they let the contract run out. Towards the end of their showing it, they had it come on at 3 in the morning. Not the best spot for a show to do well ratings wise. Now The American channel....I know I'm not remembering the name right.....it started out as the Good Life channel, but they changed their name.....they showed Chico and The Man as well, but I don't think it lasted very long there either. Hopefully, we can get a DVD to come out though!

So far it doesn't look like Chico and The Man is getting enough hits. How many hits will it have to get in order to be put on DVD? I don't get it. That show is very funny just like some of the other 1970s shows. Yet the other comedy shows from the 1970s have at least one season released if not the whole season. Why is Chico and The Man being left out? Why Warner Brothers can't release the series I just can't figure out. It's a waste of time emailing them because they always have the same answer. In other words they don't really answer your question.

Come, come Monique! Don't get discouraged! The Man, he ain't so hard to understand.....
Yeah, like you've said almost every other show listed here from the 1970's has at least one season on DVD, if not the entire series. They try out some shows to see how they will do. That's what we were told about the "Favorites" DVD that was released. It was a test to see how well the show would sell. They also say there are copyrights and such too.......same old story.....but we, the fans, can't give up! There has to be a way we can show them that there is an audience for the show. Freddie not being remembered very well and Scatman Crothers and Jack Albertson being remembered for many other things they did.....it makes it difficult, but we'll get through to them some how! Don't fret!

Smile You're right.

We can't give up. I know that Freddie Prinze jr. makes sure that his Dad is not forgotten. Maybe there are Freddie Prinze jr. fans out there who are now curious about his Dad. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. I know the Chico and The Man Television favorites DVD is still selling. I've seen other stores sell it on Amazon. The DVD most of the time gets 5 stars. The people who don't give it 5 stars are the ones who would rather have a whole season of the show. Even if just one season is released, I'll be happy. I promise I won't give up.

That's the spirit!
WE have to promote the show as much as we can too. I know some of the ladies here (and gentlemen) have registered with the site TV Shows On DVD. In case you haven't though, please go!
At this site, you can vote for shows that have no DVD release out. You can vote for episode DVDs, Best Of DVDs, or SEASON DVDs.......you also get updates when releases will happen for the shows you choose. Remember though, WE WON'T LET CHICO BE FORGOTTEN!

Smile Hi

I registered at tvshowsondvd.com. How can you tell how many votes a show has gotten so far? I read the news on the site about Chico and The Man but the information is outdated. It goes back to 2005.
