    Hi,

    It's unlikely these will get to DVD, at least in the UK, for some time. "Magnum PI" lasted for about 8 seasons, or about 130 episodes. "QL" lasted for 5 seasons, and about 110 episodes.

    Either way, anyone wanting to release this, would have to commit to the entire series, as both have long-standing plots thaqt run throughout the entire shows' runs.

    hmm..well I think Magnum PI did start getting released on video a while back ... though I don't think there were many episodes released at the time...

    i guess one can only wait and hope ...thanks for the info though :)


    (I guess the same goes for MacGuyver!)

    Not wanting to get off topic, but Sliders was a great programme, right up until they started killing off all the main cast. Then it became complete crap.

    There was a lot of noise about QL being released on DVD last year and a new show announced. Everthing has gone quite on the QL front since.

    In the past QL was not released on VHS due to the expense of clearing all the music used in the show. Music royalties can be expensive and QL had a lot of it.
