Final Results of the Recent TV Show On DVD Poll

Proving that nostalgia trumps courtroom intrigue, The Wonder Years narrowly edged out L.A. Law in the recent poll in which I asked you which TV show would you most like to see get a proper DVD release. Because The Wonder Years relied heavily on the use of popular songs from the late 60s/early 70s, music clearance issues is the reason it has never had any "complete season" DVD releases as of yet. As much as I would like to see it released, I rather it remain on the shelf than to see them use generic music as a substitute. Some may not think it's a big deal, but the hit tunes used on The Wonder Years helped set the mood and were a big part of its success.

I hate to see an entry toss up a goose egg on any of the polls, so I'm doubly disappointed because neither Moesha nor The PJs received any love from the voters.

Although there were four votes for "Other", only one person (Penny, who writes the blog The Winter of Our Discontent) provided the name of the show that they wanted to see on DVD (Ally McBeal) in the comments section. She will get her wish because 20th Century Fox is releasing both the 1st season and the complete series on October 6, 2009.

Here are the final results of the poll:

The Wonder Years- 23%
L.A. Law- 20%
Family Matters- 16%
Boston Public, The Six Million Dollar Man, You Can't Do That On Television, and "Other"- 13% each
Any Day Now and China Beach- 10% each
Batman- 6%
Cold Case- 3%
Moesha and The PJs- 0% each

Thanks to everyone who took part in this poll. Your input and comments are always appreciated.

I agree about "The Wonder Years" and it definitely got my vote (as you probably knew it would). It was a difficult choice with "China Beach", "Any Day Now" and "Moesha".
