    Sister Sister is another for the 'stalled' section, only two out of six seasons released, none since 2009.

    Thanks! I just missed that one. The latest version of the list is revised to reflect Sister, Sister.

    Happy for the BH fans, I'd prefer to see another Ebsen show unstalled soon...

    Updated to reflect today's Laverne and Shirley announcement. I am still leaving Cannon in the "continuing" category because it hasn't been a year since the last release and MOD titles don't always have the same lead time on announcements. But even I realize it is getting close to the time to put it back under "stalled." I have indicated the number of remaining seasons (or releases for those series distributed in volumes) in parentheses. Continuing: Gentle Ben (1 season)Becker (1 season) Laverne and Shirley (1 season)Cannon (2 seasons)Rawhide (2 seasons; 3 releases) Dynasty (2 seasons; 4 releases) Petticoat Junction (4 seasons)The Beverly Hillbillies (5 seasons)Bonanza (8 seasons; 16 releases) Gunsmoke (11 seasons; 22 releases) Stalled: Mork and Mindy (1 season) Dave's World (1 season)Caroline in the City (2 seasons) One Step Beyond (2 seasons) Matt Houston (2 seasons) Early Edition (2 seasons) The Phil Silvers Show (3 seasons) Nash Bridges (3 seasons) Evening Shade (3 seasons) Jake and the Fatman (3 seasons; 6 releases) Hotel (4 seasons) Sister, Sister (4 seasons)Love, American Style (4 seasons; 8 releases) Moesha (5 seasons) Happy Days (7 seasons) Barnaby Jones (7 seasons; 14 releases) The Love Boat (7 seasons; 14 releases) My Three Sons (10 seasons; 20 releases) Licensed:Webster (2 seasons)

    CBS execs planning session: OK guys, instead of releasing the rest of this iconic sitcom, let keep it stalled and release the inferior spin-off instead. They got one hell of a brain trust at CBS, I'll say that.
    On a similar note, unless you are a completest or a true L&S fan, the last 2 seasons are garbage.

    Needless to say, this two announcements do not make me salivate.

    I'd love to see the rest of Happy Days. It's a nightmare musically, though. I'm not as big on Laverne and Shirley but I might pick it up eventually. Joanie Loves Chaci I definitely want on DVD, though. I don't remember a whole lot about it but I still want it. I have a later Happy Days episode on VHS where Al proposed to and married Chaci's mother and the episode centered around the 4 of them mainly (with a little bit of Fonzie) and I loved it.

    They might also be hoping the spinoff seasons can bring them some more capital to finish off the main show's music issues. It sucks that means less popular runs get out first, but does make sense. However i beg the question if they run out of Happy Days spinoff seasons...will the good-to-laught-at animated ones also get released before Happy Days finishes? XD

    I'm happy that L&S S7 is coming out on DVD but I think that will be the last season i get since Season 8 was a trainwreck of epic proportions, but surprised about Joanie Loves Chachie coming out on DVD. Now hoping we can see Life With Lucy comes out as well next year.

    I'm really surprised Joanie Loves Chachi is coming out before the last season of Mork & Mindy :eek:

    Why don't they just do what they always do and slice and dice the original material?

    I am really hoping...Barnaby Jones is coming up soon for release, all 8 seasons...bring it on. The rest of the seasons of Cannon would be nice too.

    Is it true that one specific song in one of those episodes of the last season of Mork and Mindy is the main cause for this being held up? Hell, it didn't stop them before from releasing set shows with music issues as they just went ahead and subbed the music for generic ones, so just sub the thing and allow fans of the show to finish this series off for their respective collections.

    Given past history, the stalling to farm money to fix problems theory makes a lot more sense to the "let's make money on everything we've got" folks at WB then it may the "how about we just do cheap fixes and hope the fans don't get mad with what we do give them" folks at CBS....

    But given these are dvd producers and not leopards, maybe there's some room for some changed spots? XD

    I doubt that's true. More likely than not it was just poor sales on the last season. I'm thinking with the passing of Jonathan Winters & Robin Williams return to TV we'll probably see the final season sooner rather than later. This is just my feeling.

    I know a lot of people have issues with the CBS release schedule. What they seem to be doing is waiting as seasons of various series are remastered into HD before just throwing stuff out there. That takes time. Just look at the long stall until the latest Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction sets came out. I never dreamed those shows could ever look so good. Worth the wait, if you ask me.

    The CBS syndication bible is listing a new revision date of November 19th but I can't seem to find anything new. Just for the hell of it, I looked up Hillbillies and PJ, but no dice there.
