Police Squad on DVD
Oh I am so excited at the news that Police Squad will be released - I am tempted to say loudly IN COLOR! - on DVD! Police Squad is the series that began the whole Naked Gun franchise, and although it had a short run it was superb and hilarious.
Honestly, I can still remember jokes to this day from that series, and when I managed to catch an episode a year or so ago I was in fits again...I loved the practice of them showing the credits and introducing a huge star that was suddenly killed...during the credits. Or the freeze frame at the end where they didn't freeze frame at all, everyone stopped.
The great news comes from MoviesOnline:
Previously released on two laserdiscs, Paramount Home Entertainment has recently confirmed that Police Squad! is indeed being scoped out for a DVD release this year. As early as June to be precise. Director David Zucker reveals that he is scheduled to record commentary tracks for the release, but warns not to expect any deleted material. "I don't know if there's any deleted scenes. In those days, they just threw that stuff away."
I am wetting myself right now...I have to have this DVD! I can't tell you the amount of fun I've just had looking for images...If you haven't seen this you should. Any other Squad fans out there?
