    It is called Who Killed Julie Greer? and aired 9/26/61 as the first episode of the Dick Powell Show. That would be a perfect extra.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions, good people. I have passed them along and hopefully ripe vintage TV fruit will result.

    Don't expect for Barry and Conway to do a joint interview- apparently the two were at odds on the set of Burke's Law. I only hope we get newly remastered prints for the DVDs.

    One extra I'd definitely pay for would be an interactive map of L.A. sort of like the one on the L.A. Confidential DVD. I bought the series (R2/PAL) mainly for the exterior shots of L.A. in the 60s and the guest stars.

    I agree- perhaps they'll change their minds in time before the set comes out. Now- what about Honey West?

    That art doesn't say anything about what season. And the four cases are listed as volumes 1-4. Could this be art for the entire 2 seasons set instead of just the first half-season volume, and these be multi-disc cases? Just wondering. You're right, it's a lot of wasted space for a half season.

    I doubt it, Wayne . . . . . it's been VCI's intent to release "Burke's Law" in the split season format. From VCI's web site . . . .
    "VCI will be releasing season one in two separate collector’s sets of 16 episodes each."
    I have sent an E-mail to VCI suggesting that they consider using slimline cases in the future for multi-disc releases.

    I hope you suggested not using the clear SCAVANO!

    Wayne, according to the most recent news article at TVShowsonDVD.com for "Burke's Law," the extras will include vintage commercials, a collector's booklet, and a few other items, but none of the bonus items that were recommended in this thread. I'd guess that, yes, the window was too tight for the volume 1 release but maybe we'll see a few of the suggestions implemented for volume 2.

    For what it's worth, VCI has now posted a full description of the new "Burke's Law" set at its web site . . . . .
    BURKE'S LAW - SEASON 1: Part 1
    The description says "color" but that's not the case, it's in black & white. The good news is that VCI has gone back to the 35 mm master, so these should look good. Still no definitive release dates for "Honey West" or "Zane Grey Theater."

    I'm glad I held off on ordering the set from England. I got their Honey West set and they definitely came off 16mm prints, not 35.

    There's a nice article about "Burke's Law" posted at VCI Entertainment's web site. This should "whet the appetite" for anyone awaiting VCI's release of season 1, volume 1:

    Good article. And pretty ironic: Amos Burke's sidekick, Tim (Gary Conway) ended up becoming the "real" multi-millionaire owning a successful vineyard.

    That's hilarious that, of the "Burke's Law" guest stars, Gary Conway only remembered the sexy gals. About ten years ago I interviewed one of the series regulars from "Arrest and Trial" and all, I mean ALL, he could remember from his one-year stint on the show was what a great rack Joey Heatherton (a one-time guest star) had.

    Of course Gary Conway would only remember the female costars- as I said before, he and Gene Barry DESPISED each other!
