Come on, Simon & Simon fans! We’ve been given a reprieve from Shout! Factory. Let’s buy Season 2 in bulk, so they have no choice but to issue the rest of this great ’80′s series. We have a second chance. Let’s not blow it. Rick and A.J. are counting on us!

It’s about time season two of this great show was released on DVD. To make up for lost time Shout Factory should have released both seasons 2 and 3 together like Universal did with the 3rd and 4th seasons of The Incredible Hulk. But i’m thankful after more than two years to be getting the second season. Nearly every episode is either good or great. And the list of well known or soon to be well known guest stars is another plus, including Tom Selleck, Charles Napier, Kathleen Lloyd, Anne Schedeen, Stuart Whitman, Ray Walston, Robert Englund, Darleen Carr, Richard Kiel, Jonathan Banks, Dick Butkus, Ed Lauter, and more. An episode from Magnum, P.I. featuring A.J. and Rick is the only bonus feature. A commentary on the 2 hour Pirate’s Key episode by Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney would have been nice. Hope season 3 follows soon.

Don’t ever let anyone ever tell you not to take on ‘the giant’. We did, and we won. All of us who wrote, called and e-mailed Universal made a difference. Obviously Universal didn’t make the money they wanted to, so they sold the rights to Shout! Factory. Universal . . I still think you are a money grubbing conglomerate that ditches old shows and actors like trash. After the money Jameson and Gerald made for you . . . and that is what they get. Nice. Shout! Factory . . . thank you so much. Not only do we finally get rolling with the rest of the Simon’s cases, but we already have Adam-12, SCTV and many more thanks to this company. Now that we rallied to slam Universal, let’s make sure we thank Shout! Factory just as much. Send them a ‘thanks’ at firstname.lastname@example.org
And I thank all of you fellow fans of San Diego’s finest private investigation firm (no, not Peerless Detectives, sorry Myron) for your voice in this matter. And now that the Sleuth channel has removed the boys from their line-up, this may be all we have for some time. This all may seem a bit much for ‘just a t.v. show’, but S & S is my favorite show of all time and I sincerely thank you for helping in getting this ball rolling.
