Seriously tho, why aren't these being treated better on DVD?

I mean, I really have a hard time believing that more people bought Tour Of Duty than Diff'rent Strokes on DVD. IMO, Sony spends too much time on their 70's shows (yet oddly enough, not ODAAT, my fave 70's Sony title) and not enough on the 80's. A lot of people want FOL, SS and more DS on DVD. I understand why those shows aren't given the same care as Seinfeld, but they deserve better treatment than what they get. FOL is in TVShowsOnDVD's top 10 and Silver Spoons is pretty high as well.

Well in defense of Sony in regards to the 70's shows, they were classics. Can't say the same for the Sony shows in the 80's.

I know you're a big fan and all, but I'd say to the average TV viewer, Diff'rent Strokes or The Facts Of Life is a bigger "classic" than That's My Mama, yet Sony saw fit to release both TMM DVD's at once yet they see that FOL is in the top 10 at TSOD and won't do anything about it, and that most people consider the first season of Strokes inferior to seasons 2-6 yet they aren't exactly rushing to get the GOOD episodes out (most of season 1 is Willis whining about how he doesn't want to be a Drummond it seems).

Basically all of my favorite Sony shows (save ODAAT and Seinfeld) had their heydays in the 1980's. I'm not a huge SS fan, but I am all for it getting it's fair treatment on DVD because I know if they treat SS will, they will with DS and FOL as well.

I will agree with you, DS and FOL are better shows than That's My Mama

I agree totally that AITF, Jeffersons, Good Times, Sanford... are classic shows. But there's something wrong with the picture when Sony will release TABITHA and yet keep hesitating to release Silver Spoons, Facts Of Life and One Day At A Time and put more Diff'rent Strokes and Who's The Boss on the shelves.

I would think that Silver Spoons would be released before Punky Brewster

Poor sales numbers for Punky Brewster? I had heard that sales for the first two seasons of Punky Brewster were "good" both from tvshowsondvd.com and through personal correspondance with Shout! Factory via e-mail. Shout! had also said that they would definitely be interested in releasing seasons 3 and 4 of Punky if they had the means, but there were rights issues. If sales numbers were "poor", why would they have released season 2 and be enthusiastic about releasing seasons 3 and 4? Shout! is a much smaller company than Sony...so maybe what they consider "good" sales numbers, are "poor" by Sony's standards. If that is the case, Sony should license Silver Spoons and the remaining seasons of Punky Brewster (if they own them) to Shout! Factory for DVD release.

I don't necessarily think its right to compare Silver Spoons to Diff'rent Strokes...maybe to Punky, but I would think SS would sell better than that show, anyway...

If Diff'rent Strokes S1 sold poorly, that only proves that Sony's TV-DVD polls are pretty useless. DS won the last poll, correct? And now it is selling poorly on DVD... They should pay more attention to stuff like tvshowsondvd.com instead of these shady polls they set up on their site...

Here are some current rankings for shows mentioned in this thread from tvshowsondvd.com...

Facts of Life: Unreleased Rank: 6th(!) Overall Rank: 11th(!!)

Silver Spoons: Unreleased Rank: 96th, Overall Rank: 197th

Punky Brewster: Overall Rank: 292nd

Diff'rent Strokes: Overall Rank: 346th

Facts of Life should be released without hesitation. As for Silver Spoons, it has a much higher ranking than Punky Brewster and is WAY ahead of Diff'rent Strokes in the overall rank as well. Sony probably doesn't care, but that's their problem. They should pay closer attention to that site...that is why it exists; to show companies what shows people want to see on DVD.

Sony Polls seem like they are pointless, especially since That's My Mama was released and it's ranked much lower than SS, DS, and FOL.

Sony's release strategy really angers me. I mean they're RE-RELEASING stupid shows like Kingdom Hospital and yet refuse to release popular shows like Silver Spoons. I think they're truly out of touch with what fans really want.

My heart has officially been broken in two. I was so lookng forward to Silver Spoons on DVD. I have a sick feeling that they'll pull the plug on One Day at a Time next since we still haven't heard anything concrete about a release. Sony blows major chunks.

That sucks! Sony is horrible, the were listing ODAAT for relase soon over a year ago, and it's still not out. Now this isn't coming out either. How sad.

Yeah, that's true! Sony acts too damn cheap w/ a lot of their shows! Look at how badly they've crammed eps. of 227's S1 DVD! Then they release both seasons of That's My Mama! all at once!

Does Sony ever stop to wonder why they're getting a lot of terrible responses from critics?

The only thing Sony sometimes does right is hardly keep the old Colmubia logos on local reruns of their shows some of the time. Even Paramount does a much better job w/ their DVD's than what Sony does.

It's sad to not see SS on DVD.
