Shameful DVD Release
Yeah, I bought my copy yesterday and as I was watching the Pilot, I was remembering the next line to be said, as if no time had passed since the original CBS airing. That's how often I think about this show.
Watched the first 5 minutes of the next episode on the DVD, then angrily ejected the disc... because there's THREE episodes missing!!
Whose BRILLIANT idea was it to place a 3-episode gap on an incomplete DVD compilation for a series with a running storyline, where discontinuity is LETHAL?
That's kinda like the game CBS played when they refused to re-air the first two episodes after an angry public forced them to resurrect EZ Streets from a four-month hiatus!
All the great moments we're missing...
The "Illusion, Allusion" discussion between Jimmy and Fivers in the burned-out restaurant.
The "Pop-Up" shower scene with Jimmy and Theresa.
Theresa getting frisky at church.
Theresa joyfully waking up, then retrieving her pager from under the covers and returning Jimmy's call... Jimmy: "Why won't you give me your home phone number?" Teresa: "Because I love it when you call me this way."
The "Dog-face" discussion that ends with Jimmy heaving a glass at Mickey's head: "What kinda dog?"
I could go on...
Oh, and I really want the chance to see if there really IS a mailbox in Theresa's apartment building with the name "B. Fraser"!
