    Yeah, me too. I'm not sure if Odyssey's still around. Anyone know? Personally, I think it would fit great on TV Land.

    Of course, they could show it on C-SPAN 2 at 4am and I'd still watch it (or at least tape it).

    What I've heard is that Hallmark Channel is still able to show it. As in they have the license to. But thats what I've heard people say.

    I wish the whole collection of Time Life DVDs would be sent to my house. Then I'd be cool.

    I think part of the reason a lot of Henson stuff is not on air is that they have a reputation for demanding high license fees. If you're a TV programmer and you can get Happy Days for $250* an episode versus The Muppet Show for $500 you're going to go to decide to go with the Fonz instead of the Foz.

    *I have no idea what it costs to license TV shows on cable, I'm just making up numbers here.

    You and me both, pal. If TMS was on TV, I wouldn't be quite as upset about missing vol. 6 from Timelife. I could just tape it. I don't know though. Even if the show WAS on TV, they still wouldn't have the UK spots and some times they're the best parts. I don't know. :confused:
