In the last eight decades there have been a huge amount of TV shows on the air. Some have been hugely successful, running five, 10, 15 years on the air. Others have been short lived series, running for maybe a couple of seasons; several TV shows that were aired never even made it a full season. For some of these short-lived series, they may not have been popular or established enough to be made into DVDs for purchasing. Even some popular and long running series have been overlooked simply because they were popular well before sophisticated recording devices were available. And they had been forgotten by the time the technology existed to market them to regular consumers.
The same thing can be said for old movies and classic films. Many classics are available in DVDs, but there are many more that never made it, either because of low popularity, B-movie status or lower, or they just didnít make the list of movies to make to go to DVD. Often, if the movie was a flop in the theatres and doesnít have a cult following, it is forgotten.
However, there are always the fans that do remember those TV shows and movies that are special to them. And often there are more people who are fans of these ďlostĒ TV shows and movies than you might think. Whether you grew up with a certain TV show or there are movies you love that you havenít seen (or found anywhere) in years, chances are you can find them if you look in the right places.
Collectors and fans of rare TV shows and movies often collect and restore these old classics and sell them in high-quality DVD form. Rare DVDís are becoming easier to find with technology and the Internet. If you are looking for a special TV show or movie or just want to browse through rare classics, then you should search the internet for these rare DVD collections.
