The grassroots effort to convince Paramount to release The Magician on DVD could probably use a little help. Paramount has already lost thousands of dollars to pirated videos and now DVDs through sites like eBay, so I think it would be in their best interest if the original, unedited episodes were indeed released. There is a very dedicated group through Yahoo spearheading this effort. I wish I had known more about them for the article, but I had just learned of the group right at the deadline so I could only give them a passing mention, since I had no solid details.

You might recognize the image currently residing on their homepage. I do hope that they asked Richard for permission first, but what the heck: They seem genuinely thrilled by the article and the cover. They were kind enough to invite me to join their group, which I did.
More information on the effort to get the DVDs released can be found there. Should you not wish to join the Yahoo group, the site where one can vote for the DVD is here: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/
To vote, you must register, but its fairly painlessthough I do not yet know the SPAM ramifications (there is a no email option).
