PUT THEM ON DVD ALREADY! - A Year Later

A little over a year ago, I wrote two hubs about shows I thought should end up on DVD, or, at the very least, be made available to the public. One was about television shows in general, while the other looked at old Nickelodeon series.

Since then, things have improved slightly. While several shows I'm still dying to own are just as unlikely now to end up on the shelves as they were a year ago (Batman, Malcolm in the Middle, The Wonder Years), some progress is better than none at all.

So, thanks to Amazon and iTunes, the 17 selected series below are available to own or download. Hopefully, this time next year, even more shows will join the ranks.
