The blog thing again

I say "again" because this is my second attempt at a blog. Hopefully this time it'll last a bit longer than my previous attempt. I'm sure I would have kept posting at the old blog if people actually visited the thing. Oh well, sometimes the second attempt is better than the first (right?).

I'll post lots of off-topic material here; stuff that just doesn't fit on the site.

I know I'll be checking this out on a regular basis. After getting to meet and chat with you in HI and having followed the site for a long time, I'm sure your posts here are going to be uber-interesting.

I think you're off to a great start.

Ah, Mike! You're the first to comment on the blog :D

For those that don't know, Mike and I met up at the Lost season 1 DVD launch in Hawaii. We had some good times sipping Mai Tai's with all the Disney people.

I will be checking your blog out regularly... just like your site! To a TV and a DVD addicted like myself... your site is a must! Thanks for all your hard work!

Hi there! I started coming to TvShowsOnDVD.com for the express purpose of waiting for news of my beloved "Knots Landing"'s arrival on DVD and quickly became addicted!! Its one of a couple sites I visit every single day (if not two or three times...lol) I'll be stopping in here to see what tidbits are revealed! You have a loyal fan here and THANK YOU!! for all the good work on our behalf.

I haven't visited TVShowsOnDVD much since the RSS feed suddenly vanished, but at least I can add this blog to Bloglines!

Hi Gord,

Thanks for starting up the blog. I too am a fan of yours from tvshowsondvd.com. I hope to contribute more substantial comments as time goes on. Just out of curiosity, what are some of your favorite shows? What would you like to see released on dvd?

This is my first attempt at commenting to a blog. I, too, check this website out two or three times a day, and have been for over two years now. I think it is a great site, and Gord does a great job running it. Keep up the great work!

jasond,
Don't forget about Dave! He does an excellent job with the news EVERY day. The last time we didn't have news up was waaaay back in October, 2003. He even takes time out of his day during holidays to make sure there's something posted to the site. Dave rocks!

Patrick,
My favorite shows....hmmm....I'm way too heavily influenced by what I recently watched. With that said, I'm really enjoying "Battlestar Galactica." There's something about that show....I think it may be the situation they're in, and how Ron Moore conveys the stress that they're under. They're fleeing for their lives, and they aren't going to get any help. The emotions flow from the screen; it's quite amazing. I'd have to say it's one of my favorite shows on right now.

I check tvshowsondvd.com every day, so I'm sure I'll be checking this blog often, too. Wish I'd known about your previous blog. I would have read it!

katayla,
You can read the previous blog here:

Not a whole lot to read, but I did blog about a trip to LA; the first TV-DVD conference.

re: "What would you like to see released on dvd?"

Patrick, Gord's GETTING his wish! He's got Brisco County on the way, the one show he had in the back of his mind when he started this site! You do realize that once it comes out, the site all goes downhill from there? Just kidding, Gord.

Beside, I won't let Gord pack it up until I get WKRP, the original Tick, and the rest of Hulk and Married with Children. :P

 
At December 18, 2005 12:10 PM, Blogger Gord Lacey said...

Well, not totally true, Dave. I wanted "Kids in the Hall" and "Family Guy" on DVD, and that's why I started the site. "Brisco" came a bit later, but it's one I've been fighting to see released for about 2 years. I'm glad it's coming out :D

Hey there, look forward to the blog :-)

Great idea to complement the website, Dave and Gord.

I check TVShowsOnDVD on a daily basis. TV Shows are slowly but surely becoming the staple of my DVD collection.

You guys rock -- plain and simple.

I visit your site everyday -sometimes twice. I rely on you because I work for Borders and there are always people asking when this or that is coming out. I see it as great customer service when I can answer their questions. I also usually tell them to visit this site, because, well it's always the best (next to the digital bits). Now, I have to add another blog to a list at which I visit. It's growing day by day, this list (which I've had to split between the naughty gay ones and the movie/tv/scifi/dvd ones. Its a challenge NOT to get them mixed up)

David and Gord,

I'm sure we all have those favorites we'd eventually like to see put on dvd. Hill Street Blues was mine for awhile. Now it's the second through eigth seasons of Barney Miller. Just out of curiosity, do either of you know when the third season of Once and Again is to be rescheduled?

 
At December 18, 2005 9:56 PM, Blogger Gord Lacey said...

Sorry Patrick, no word on that one yet.

I think we're going to try and keep the blog free of questions about releases; this is meant more for off-topic stuff. Feel free to email us with questions though.

I check tvshowsondvd.com daily. I will check out your blog as well.

Hmm, as an unrepentant blog lurker I think we need a warning mechanism set up. I suspect I'll read frequently but post replies hardly ever, if at all. Therefore I suggest there should be a mechanism whereby if the number of replies fall below the amount required to keep you posting we get a warning

e.g.

***** WARNING REPLY COUNT TO LOW *****

Then we can quickly pop in post a few random replies to your last five comments, then drop back to lurking.

(just Kidding - probably)

yay another one of these things, i remember the fan message board a few years back but no one left any comments about anything. it's great because i followed you guys from almost the very beginning. Keep up the great work!

Hmmm....we didn't have a fan message board...

Hey Gord

just wanted to say thanks for your site, you've answered a few of my questions from Sydney. You provide a great service, although you are evil and totally responsible for my ailing bank balance. *g*

Merry Christmas, and have a great 2006.

Karen
