Default Bob Newhart Show seasons 5 & 6

Now that Fox is finally releasing the remaining seasons of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, do you think theres any chance they'll follow up with The Bob Newhart Show seasons 5 & 6?

From what I've been given to understand from a VERY reliable source connected to TBNS, there was a major hangup with seasons 5 and 6: RESIDUALS. Residuals were finally built into the contracts for something beyond the first five reruns of the show. While this will be a nice plus for Bob, Bill, Peter, Jack, and Marcia, it means more expense for Fox ... probably why they waited all this time.

But if MTMS is finally being released, I think TBNS won't be far behind. So far my reliable source hasn't known anything.

Amazon says season 5 is coming. They've set up a "we'll contact you"
for season 5. Won't be long now.

Let's hope it won't be long - and that there will be more commentaries like in Seasons 2, 3, & 4.

I've been DVRing season 6 from ALN and then transferring it to dvd. The episodes seem to be unedited running between 24 to 25 minutes without commercials. I missed most of season 5 so I hope they will keep airing it until they get back to it.

MeTv channel 26-2 in Chicago aired all of season 5 which I put on dvd, but they reset back to season 1 after airing the last episode of season 5. Anyone who has season 6, I would be more than happy to trade you for a copy of my season 5.

All right kids...

I was part of the interminable-but-eventually-successful push for the much-delayed Seasons 5, 6, and 7 of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, and I'm very close to having the batteries recharged enough for a similar all-out push for Seasons 5 and 6 of The Bob Newhart Show...especially since I just bought Seasons 1-4 and it irks me that 5 and 6 aren't available.

I haven't figured out exactly what I'm gonna do, and I know it's gonna be even more difficult than for TMTMS, especially if 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has to pay residuals for those seasons and thus might not want to put them out, but I'm very close to making the commitment for the long effort that will be needed.

What I need to know is, how many people here are willing to get behind me, especially if I need emails or phone calls made? I can be alternately charming/annoying enough to either get something done, or to at least find out once and for all if Seasons 5 and 6 are ever gonna see the light of day. But I may need backup.

It doesn't seem as if there are quite as many people on TBNS message board as on TMTMS board, but if there are enough, or if the ones who are interested are gung-ho enough, maybe we can get something done.

So who's with me????????!!!!!!!!

This just in, as they say in the news business.

About a month ago I signed up on Amazon to be notified if Season 5 of The Bob Newhart Show becomes available. Well, in checking something else just now, I noticed that you now can sign up for Season 6 of TBNS!

I think it'd be a good idea if everybody put in their request to be notified, so spread the word.
And is it just me, or could this be a good sign about Seasons 5 and 6 coming out? Because I'm not positive the Season 6 page was there before!

Hopefully a deal can still be struck if residuals are holding up the release of seasons 5 & 6-----at this time tvshowsondvd.com does not show any future release dates and they forecast ahead for several months.

This needs to be sorted out because all the fans are frustrated, the cast isn't making anything off of it, and Fox isn't selling DVD's.

If and when they do come out I hope their style and packaging matches the first four, but, at this point, I don't care if they're black and hot pink as long as I can FINALLY complete my collection!

If (or Hopefully when) seasons 5 & 6 get released they'll probably be the newer format slim cases like MTM seasons 5-7. One thing FOX did do that made sense is it recently made MTM seasons 1-4 available in these slimmer to match seasons 5-7, so one can have the complete series displayed nice on a shelf.
