The New Family Guy Dvd

In truth, what little I know about HBO’s intentions regarding a “John from Cincinnati” DVD set boils down toJfcnicholsoval  this: Yes, they intend to put one out, but it won’t be until next year. People who know more about these things than I do say that it takes a long time to master and “author” 10 hours of material for DVD, not to mention assembling packaging materials and marketing plans, etc.

Plus, how could you put out a DVD set of David Milch’s spiritual surfin’ safari without packing it with all kinds of cosmic extras, from commentary tracks (even if it might sound like a post-grad English lit course) to deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes hijinx. (Can you imagine the outtakes? Tee hee.) Certainly, all of the original viral-vid material produced during the run of the series would be a natural to fill out a nice bonus disc. They could even incorporate some of the puzzles and such that are built into the faux fan websites that have distributed this material to date, as chronicled here two weeks ago in this post.

    Bring back JFC!!! Yes, it takes a while to catch on but isn’t it time we wake-up. This program had it all, the best writers, actors, themes. Somebody fucked up.

    You’ve got to help me out here.
    My wife has become an absolute nut over JFC. She even brings her 80 year old mother over to watch the reruns. (Which tends to be a little embarassing with some of the scenes/language.)
    Can’t believe you cancelled it without bringing the story to a close. Dumb move – can’t tell you the number of conversations I’ve had over the show – with just about anyone. Probably as much as Sopranos.
    Anyway, if you insist on leaving it off, please, please produce the DVD.

    Please bring John back. And the whole cast we miss, the best show you ever produced, give it back to us, talk to Mr. Milch, do whatever you need to, but bring this show back to the air. The best thing ever to show on television. The most hopeful program we have seen, ever. Why take away the good and replace it with the very mediocre when you have an audience for quality, begging you daily to bring John back to I.B. And to us all.

    Hbo, if you can see this, bring John back now! This show kicked ass,and got you thinking on the edge of your seat. I loved the charecters and the show could not have had a better cast. Hbo should know about hits and misses, and I haven’t been this much into a show since The Sopranos! Hbo bring John and all of the paranormal activity back!!!!!!!!!I want to watch John from Cincinnati!
