    Off the top of my head, these are the TV shows I want on DVD (in complete season sets) that aren't currently available:

    1. Batman TV show (with Adam West)
    2. Get Smart
    3. The Odd Couple
    4. Dragnet (Both original Jack Webb versions, complete 50s series and 60s series).
    5. Mary Tyler Moore Show (seasons 2-7).


    Feel free to add your own requests.

    I would echo all of your choices and add these.

    1. Columbo (All NBC seasons)
    2. Bob Newhart Show
    3. The Fugitive
    4. Barney Miller (Seasons 2-9)
    5. Night Gallery (All seasons)

    There are loads of others I'd give a shot to as well in time but those ten so far I would get almost right when they're released.
