Movie Reviews

Still the same

"When Wiseguy originally came out on DVD, I was excited beyond words to finally see my favorite tv show of all time after so long. Right before I went to the store I decided to check Amazon for reviews, which is where I discovered the most climactic scene out of the entire series had been massacred. Any other episode I might understand, but for the studio to care so little about the show to not pony up the extra dough to keep "Nights in White Satin" in the final scene told me a lot about not only how much they care about the profit margin, but also how little they care about the fans. To me it's the same thing as taking John William's music out of the final Death Star scene in the original Star Wars movie. At that moment I refused to buy any Wiseguy DVDs, from any season.

Years later I hear about this collector's edition coming out, and again I get potentially excited..until the announcement comes out that's it's not a collector's edition at all, just a repackaging of the previous releases. I can at least understand the Dead Dog Records arc because of the sheer number of songs and the editing issues, but one song in what most fans consider the most poignant and emotional scene of the series?

Great job to the studio and Mr. Cannell. After all these years you still know how to put the screws to the fans. I guess it's time to find some old VHS copies and convert them to digital format."
Poor old consumer gets the shaft again

"Huge Wiseguy fan, thrilled to pieces when it finally got a DVD release. However, the same as previous reviewers, I did some research and found out it was missing music and then whole episodes, so I flat out passed. Again was excited to hear of this new 'collectors edition' hoping against hope that they music was fixed and the Dead Dog arc was back in, but nope, this is another cheap attempt at extracting dollars from our wallets with a half baked product. Again I shall pass.

The temerity of companies doing this galls me beyond belief. Release the show, as broadcast, uncut and with all original music or just don't bother. This non collectors edition is just another two fingers up to the consuming public.

Be like me... don't buy it... and continue to not buy it or any other show given such a disrespectful release until it is issued in its entirety and in its original presentation. Perhaps FINALLY these companies will get the message and lift their game. Until then... leave it on the shelf"
No "Dead Dog Records," No Reinstatement of Music

"Just an FYI. Buyer beware.

Mill Creek won't be issuing versions w/ the original songs -- and they won't be shelling out the bucks for music rights to the Dead Dog Records arc (hence they simply aren't including those episodes at all.

If that's not a big deal to you, go for it."
