At the beginning of this week, we reported
that Sugarfoot - The Complete 1st Season
was listed at Amazon.com as a CreateSpace MOD title from the Warner Archive. At the time it was shown to be available there since the past Tuesday, but mysteriously wasn't found on the Warner Archive Collection's pages at the studio's WBshop online store. We have asked about the latter with our contacts at the Archive, and were told to expect it to be listed there in "the next few months
." Now the Amazon listing has been updated to show that "This title will be released on July 16, 2013.
," and so it is not currently available there after all. Our thanks to reader Gordon Hartman for alerting us to the change. Stay tuned and we'll report again on this once Warner makes it all official.
This is to acknowledge that we're getting emails from some of you out there reading the above story, telling us "but Sugarfoot - The Complete 1st Season
is already available!" Yes, but it's exclusively out at one seller for now, and we don't cover those kinds of releases. The studios don't provide us with info about titles for these exclusives, the retailers who do it don't seem to want the other retailers to particularly know about it, and both we and most of our readers don't think these kinds of "promotions" are good for consumers. So we only cover a title once it's been scheduled for a more general "wide" retail release...which, in the case of this title, means when Warner Archive begins selling it themselves, and through other "general" vendors such as Amazon CreateSpace. So please...hold the emails. Thanks.
