First, Warner Archive began selling made on demand DVDs of classic films that weren’t likely to receive a mass DVD release. Then they added lesser-known or fan favorite modern movies to their direct-to-customer online store.
Now, they’ve branched out into TV shows, with The New Adventures of Robin Hood, a four-disc set of season one for $35. This 1997 show originally ran on TNT for four seasons, so if there’s demand, more may be coming. I’d never heard of the show before, so I’m not a customer, but the idea of Warner making more of its TV production history available is exciting.
This isn’t the first they’ve done — that would be Eleventh Hour, a more recent CBS show — but it’s promised to be the first of “several exclusive TV releases this summer”, so I’m curious to see what’s coming up.
