To pad out the series a little more (which I downloaded a little while ago and enjoyed), they should add Richter's other season one cancelled show Andy Barker PI.  That only lasted 6 episodes, but I thought it was promising.

ARCTU was 2 seasons I believe.

Ah, it said 19 episodes on imdb, so I assumed it was just the one.

Quintuplets was his other 1 season cancellation.
Wait, the characters he played on Arrested Development had a show? I never heard of that one.

No, he was a father in this show.  The quintuplets were his teenage kids.

Ahh, Andy Richter Controls the Universe was hillarious.  I will definitely be picking this one up.

Yes that was pretty good, but I knew it was doomed from the first episode, he doesn't have all that much luck.

Yesterday Paramount Home Entertainment announced the long-awaited, highly-anticipated DVD release for Andy Richter Controls the Universe - The Complete Series. We've now gotten new info about this March 24th release. It will be a 3-disc set that not only contains all 19 episodes from the show's two-season run (including five that didn't air during the show's original broadcasts), but it will contain bonus material as well.

There will be Featurettes (details to be announced) as well as Audio Commentary on select episodes by Andy Richter and show creator Victor Fresco. Pricing is $39.99 SRP. We've also learned that the "full screen" video aspect ratio provided in the original studio info could possibly be incorrect, and that this may in fact be widescreen. We're looking into that, so stay tuned. For now, here's an awesome look at the front of the package:

I just watched every episode not too long ago, both of those ladies in the show are quite attractive and had great characters.

I'm pretty sure the show wasn't in widescreen, so I don't know if I'd like them messing with that just because they can. Like those stupid cropped Evil Dead DVDs.

It was a real coup to cast attractive people on a television show.  Back in 2002, it was generally unheard of to use good looking women in movies and TV.

Smartass, seeing as how it's hard for me to find many people in tv shows "attractive", I'd say they did pretty well with the casting choices for this show.

My brother got me the DVD for my birthday.  It's pretty much as funny as I remembered it.  It was interesting to note when watching the special features that James Patrick Stuart and Irene Molloy look exactly the same now as they did on the show.  I know it's only been, what, 7 years?  But still, Andy looks older.  Paget Brewster looks somewhat older.  Jonathan Slavin looks older.  And I was pleasantly surprised by how funny James Patrick Stuart seems out of character.  He kinda reminds me of my high school biology professor.  He has a very dry, understated, intelligent sense of humor.

I dunno.  Andy looked kinda the same.  And I think Paget and Jonathan looked older because they had different haircuts.

But sweet Jesus, Paget Brewster is feloniously hot.
