    John, I'm glad to see someone besides me remembers this show. I absolutely loved it at the time and would snatch up a DVD set in a heartbeat. I would also pick up Just the Ten of Us and Out of This World.

    There's another '80s syndicated sitcom that you didn't mention that I would love to see released this year: Marblehead Manor. Anyone remember this one? It was about a rich couple with a completely dysfunctional staff running their household. A few notable cast members were Linda Thorson (of Avengers fame), Phil Morris (son of Mission: Impossible's Greg Morris) and a young Michael Richards who would later become immortalized as Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld.

    I agree! I loved this show, and still think it's great.
    I never thought of the possibility of Anchor Bay releasing it, if they did, at least it would almost guarantee a steady release schedule, and ensure all seasons are released!!

    Jeff, if you have a multi-region player, you might be interested to know that St. Elsewhere is being released on DVD in the UK on 6th March, with season two to follow on 12th June.

    The same dates will also see the first two seasons of Hill Street Blues as well.

    I want more of The Muppet Show!

    New season sets of Arrested Development and The Shield work just fine, too. Especially when Europe is still waiting for season 3 of The Shield to be released. That sucks.

    Oh, and Twin Peaks season 2, naturally. But who hasn't want that for the last two or three years?

    In 2006, the shows which I'll most anxiously await further seasons of are Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart. As far as new releases, I'm looking forward to Family Affair, another season or two (hopefully) of Doris Day, and I really hope Paramount starts putting out season sets of the Beverly Hillbillies - that was one funny show. I'd also like to see Get Smart, Batman, Land of the Giants, and probably too many others to list. In my view, classic TV is really the true calling of TV on DVD. I don't understand how people can get so worked up about DVD sets of TV shows which you can just turn on your set and watch, or tivo them, or burn them to your own DVDs any time you want. For me, the real benefit of TV on DVD is getting to watch the great classic shows that I haven't seen in years and are just not shown anymore, or when they are show they're edited, speeded up, etc. Hopefully the pace of classic and overdue releases will increase in 2006.

    I'll add another vote for

    The Untouchables
    Wild Wild West
    Mission: Impossible


    and put in my two cents for

    Alias Smith and Jones.

    I'd also like to see installments from the ABC Movie of the Week which were often very well-made TV movies.

    Centennial (1978).

    But since I'm the only person to have mentioned itI would think chances are mighty slim.

    Hello everyone! [​IMG]

    Yes I'm new to this forum.

    Here is my 2006 wish list:

    SM$M (Please!)
    Bionic Woman
    WKRP
    Welcome Back Kotter
    The Tick (animated)
    Facts of Life
    Manimal
    Misfits of Science

    I know that some of these titles are due out this year, but until they are in my hands they will appear on my wish list.
    I must have the Six Million Dollar Man!!!

    The last 2 on my list is wishful thinking...I bet Courtney Cox will do everything in her power to ensure that the Misfits of Science will remain locked away forever.

    I wonder why they haven't released Family Ties yet?


    Anyways, I'm looking forward to contributing to this site (even though I don't have home theatre) [​IMG]

    I'm not sure I'd buy Vega$; I'd be more likely to buy Spenser: For Hire though.

    The trouble is, since I grew up in the 80s (born 1969), I realise much of the TV I watched then I recall now through rose-tinted glasses, and watching them again now can sometimes be, shall we say, awkward ("I can't believe I was a fan of that show!"-type sentiments)

    E.g. as a kid I was totally enthralled by Knight Rider, but I have no wish to see it again now. I suspect I'll have the same reaction to shows like Streethawk or Automan. And even shows like Space: 1999 and Battlestar Galactica (1978), which I did buy, seem somewhat "cheesy" today. Likewise many sitcoms which have been raised in this thread, e.g Just The Ten Of Us, Growing Pains etc, I watched them back then, but I'm not sure I want to now.

    Five-O? Tempting, but with 12 seasons and the completist streak in me, it's going to be painful...

    It's the cheese factor (for me) that makes watching these shows so entertaining. I love watching Micheal Knight playing his Atari 2600 while Kitt does the driving!
