Wow. You're the one. It just struck me as coincidental, because the exact conversation we were having was "who in the blue hell would be so wrong in the head as to want to buy Three's Friggin' Company on DVD?"

And now I know. Okay. That's why I asked. Thanks.

BTW, DeepDiscountDVD.com is currently having a buy-one-boxed-set-get-one-free sale, in case you need to fill any holes. Here's the link:

Haha, yes, Andy Warhol's recordings preserved, among other things, a couple 1975 episodes of High Rollers!  Too bad they can only be viewed at the NY Museum of TV & Radio :(

As far as any Betamax treasure troves go, our best bet is to find the odd episode here and there, as has been the case for years.  A lot of the home recordings from that era come from people who were contestants on the who and taped their appearances.  For example a 1976 $20K Pyramid and 2 1978 WoFs fall into that category.

[quote name=\'TheFlea\' post=\'128630\' date=\'Aug 23 2006, 10:44 AM\']What's my point?  Simple--it's very unlikely that someone stockpiled game shows from that era on a home recorder.  They would have to have been rich, extremely irresponsible with their money, or extremely passionate!  [/quote]
That pretty much describes Andy Warhol -- whose personal recordings of daytime television in the seventies are in fact exactly what we're talking about!  Still, I agree with the Flea, it's extremely unlikely that there's an undiscovered trove of such recordings.

LOL, yeah, that's me!

I still think Three's Company is funny (especially the one about the misunderstanding), but then I think 30-year-old game shows are entertaining too.  Shows what I know.

At least I can admit it.  :)

Too much time on your hands?

The headlines read these are the worst of times.

I remember Joyce DeWitt pointing out in an interview that "the one about the misunderstanding" could also describe most of Shakespeare's comedies.  Yes, best as I could tell, she was comparing Three's Company to Shakespeare with a straight face.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

It still amazes me the number of great camera angles at which Joyce DeWitt's rear end was shot.  Well worth $19.99 a pop.  (Take that as you wish.)

They can also be viewed at the Museum of TV & Radio location in beautiful downtown Beverly Hills, should one ever find oneself on the Left Coast.

Not to defend that particular show, but I've heard it said that if Shakespeare were alive in our time, he'd be writing sitcoms. He wrote what was popular in his time.
