Still Waiting for the DVD #1

The logic eludes me as to why entire lame TV series like "The L Word", "Brisco County Jr." and "Third Watch" are on DVD, yet certain great movies are still stuck in VHS limbo. Case in point: Skatetown USA starring Scott Baio and Maureen McCormick - how is this not on DVD? Hell, you've even got a special appearance by Horshack ("Welcome Back, Kotter"), so what's not to love?

Another movie I'm waiting for is Pretty Maids All in a Row starring Rock Hudson as a demented high school coach and Angie Dickinson. The film was directed by Roger Vladim (Barbarella) and produced by Gene Roddenberry (the "Star Trek" creator!), and it has to be one of the most socially irresponsible movies ever filmed (read another post to see why).

Other great movies that haven't made it to DVD for some unknown reason: Piranha, the TV series "James at 15", Saturn 3 (starring Farrah Fawcett), and I Was a Teenage Werewolf! I know there's a lot more that I'm leaving out, and I'm sure they'll arrive one day, but I'm not getting any younger DVD makers!

[Note: I've since written another post ranting and raving about horror films not yet released on DVD here.]

  2. I know it's not the DVD, but this is on YouTube as several discrete chunks:
