    It was said at a convention last year that they not only need to clear the music, but they also have to pay all living musicians. Not sure if that means the musicians who worked on the show or the musicians involved with the songs (and I don't know why it would have to be the latter), but with that statement in mind I guess it's safe to assume that they don't have to deal with the guest stars or their estates (after all, they would have mentioned that fact, wouldn't they?).

    Wow, that's just sad, here I was expecting something better, they should have just not released it altogether.

    Sorry this is late but I think the reason that they re-released it so poorly is to force the ABC studios logo on to the box before they revealed that the new show was cancelled.

    Thanks for the info, I doubt they'll make much money considering people rarely buy DVDs anymore and they probably already bought them.

    Don't forget to add Roger Moore to the list of celebrity estates. He died recently.
