    Shows
    3lbs (2006)
    All Souls (2001)
    Angie (1979)
    Barnaby Jones (1973)
    Bob (1992)
    The Bold and the Beautiful (1987) - Some sort of release, best of, as seasons probably too big a task
    Cannon (1971)
    Clueless (1996)
    Cuts (2005)
    The District (2000)
    Dr Vegas (2004)

    Still Standing (2002)
    The Stones (2004)
    That's Life (2000)
    Wolf Lake (2001)

    I know some of these are still long shots but there is still hope, many of the shows only lasted a series so would be easy to put out in a complete series set.
    Also I know my list is long but collecting dvds is my passion and i spend alot of money on them lol. I could go on forever lol but will stop here.

    Some CBS/Paramount releases I like to see get released, provided their complete and have no music replacements.

    MacGyver: Lost Treasure of Atlantis/MacGyver: Trail to Doomsday (separate release)
    Early Edition (rumored to be coming, tentative June 24)
    Promised Land (hopefully it will include the episode that concluded on "Diagnosis Murder")
    Legend
    Jake 2.0
    Father Dowling Mysteries (hopefully it will include the pilot telefilm as well)
    3 lbs.
    Numb3rs S4 (The only current series I'm continuing to buy from this studio, unless of course they find a way to screw this one up too.)

    I forgot to mention when they get to the fifth season of "Touched by an Angel", the final crossover with "Promised Land" needs to be included, and I wished they not recycle artwork (although in a different color scheme for their last release). Season 3, Vol. 1 and 2 and Season 4, Vol. 1 all had different screenshots that reflected the episodes on their sets, but no, they decided to be cheap again and include the same screenshots for Season 4, Vol. 2 that are identical to Vol. 1. A minor thing, but bugged the heck out of me.

    I certainly agree, and it was shame that CBS killed it so fast. Mr. Tucci has a number of projects coming up including a supporting role in director Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's acclaimed novel, "The Lovely Bones". There's already been a lot of buzz about this film, so CBS/Paramount might want to use this to their advantage. He's a great character actor. It will be a shame (again) if this never makes it to the DVD format.

    Many of the shows on your list aren't owned by CBS. Luckily all of these you want have aired recently so you should at least have DVDR copies of all of them in case they never get commercially released.

    nope dont have copies of them, currently in Vancouver and not in my hometown in England, so limited by what can watch etc and no DVD recorder here either.

    According to IMDB the rights are owned by CBS or Paramount Home video if its changed then not sure who owns the rights, if anyone knows who owns the shows that arent owned by them please let me know

    if you want to have an idea of what CBS/Paramount could possibly release on DVD, check out their syndication Bible. I'm hoping for the complete Flying Blind.

    I'm so excited that Jake and the Fatman and Dave's World are finally coming out. Now if only Sightings and Do Over can follow. C'mon, Paramount don't let me down.
