Randall and Hopkirk: Deceased. One volume was released...a second would have completed the series...
My biggest dissappointments are the Krofft shows from Rhino. While there arent any specific shows left unfinished (aside from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters), there are still a ton of single season shows left untouched that still need doing: Doctor Shrinker, Wonderbug, Electrawoman and Dynagirl. And Rhino did such a good job on the extras, too. Damn shame that.
The other one probably isnt a valid series to include, but I wish they could have finished up the second GI Joe series before Hasbro pulled the liscense. Oh, sure some other stuido will get the show in time for the cross promotion with the upcoming movie, but I'd like to have gotten it all out at once.
The last one? The Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman. It's been well over a year and nothing past season 2 for either. While I have no choice but to sit and wait (and enjoy what is out), I wish we'd get news one way or another.
I forgot to mention earlier:
The Fall Guy.
I seriously hope Fox hasn't abandoned this great show
A Different World and Butterflies oh and Bad Girls
Paramount said Happy Days Season 4 was coming out, they just wanted to get it away from L&S on the release schedule because the fans of both season were essentially the same people and having L&S, Happy Days and Mork and Mindy together was thought to be too much of a strain on people's pocketbooks. There was an official response from Paramount on tvshowsondvd
I don't buy many TV shows on DVD, but I sure would love to have a complete collection of Larry Sanders.
But I'm also curious as to what's up with SMDM and TJ Hooker.
Sony is lame for stopping Partridge Family with 2 seasons left.Also
want more than Season 1 of Police Woman,Alias Smith and Jones,
Looks like everybody got the bases covered, But I want to see 2nd season & up of War of the Worlds series and How many seasons of Highway to Heaven ran for???
The Big Valley
The Big Valley
The Flying Nun
The Partridge Family
Alias Smith And Jones
McMillan And Wife
Mary Tyler Moore and The Bob Newhart Show
Wasn't The Lone Ranger set put together using syndication edits? If so, I consider that show to be unreleased. It really needs all the seasons to be released, including the John Hart season. He's still alive although I don't know what his health status is. It would be neat if, health permitting, he could do an interview if a collection were to be released.
Somebody mentioned Ironside. I don't think that's quite dead. Brian Ward at Shout said they just haven't scheduled Season 3 yet and not to assume that it is done.
I honestly don't know if this show has been abandoned or not, but I haven't anything about "The Practice" since volume one. And what of the fate of "Boston Public"???
Wow! In reading through these posts I'm getting a sense for just how big a problem this is. Far more shows have been abandoned or are in limbo than I imagined. I had only been following the dozen or so that I was disappointed in, but this is a much larger conundrum than I initially realized.
I sincerely hope guys in the position to do so will let the studios know that the consumers are really unhappy with these developments. I can understand a studio trying out 1 season of a show and if it doesn't sell abandoning it. I don't like it, but I can at least understand it. But how in the world can a studio like Fox put out 3 seasons of a show like "VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA" and then stop when there is only 1 season left?!!! That is truly despicable and I pray that the news we've gotten about this show being abandoned is somehow wrong. I can't express how much that angers me and how much it erodes consumer confidence.
Right now Paramount is pretty much the only studio that seems to be trying with TVonDVD. Frankly, I think the others have given up on vintage TV and are almost exclusively focusing on new shows unless they have a tie in with a movie. I just pray Paramount doesn't screw fans of older shows because things aren't getting released as quickly with these split seasons. It's taking twice as long to get "THE FUGITIVE" out as it did to get "THE WILD, WILD WEST" out simply because of this split season nonsense. My fear is that something will happen (economy takes a dive, industry dries up, etc) and some of these split seasons will not make it through to completion whereas they would have if they had been released as full season sets to begin with. It's an issue I worry about quite a bit, to be honest.
Gary "Fox really is earning bad marks for their abandonment issues" O.
As someone pointed out to me, it isn't merely Paramount DVD division pushing TVshowsondvd. Because of the corporate split, this is CBS DVD that's going overboard in getting titles on shiny discs. They know that their entire division relies on releasing their vault titles. Whereas the other studios DVD divisions rely on the latest blockbuster film. They don't have the incentive to go strong and work the vault.
THE NAKED CITY
LEAVE IT TO BEAVER
HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL
Hey, they're all black and white!
Alot of these I hadn't realized were being abandoned, but most I'm more than ready to finish completing my collection. I knew I wasn't the only one waiting on pins and needles for alot of these. The studios are really missing out on our buying dollars.
Hunter (still got 4 seasons and some TV movies to go)
Poltergeist: The Legacy (want to see the succubus episodes)
Adventures Of Sinbad (only one more season, had to order from Canada)
Street Justice (also only one more season, also from Canada)
Highway to Heaven (two more seasons)
Touched by an Angel (didn't know this one was abandoned yet, certain of that?)
Boy Meets World
Simon and Simon
Hart to Hart
WHO'S THE BOSS
Fall Guy (don't know this is abandoned, just maybe slow right now?)
Quincy (would love to finish this, but Universal QC is horrible, S1 dvds riddled with skips, jumps and freezes)
GI Joe (YO JOE! finish up this for 80's cartoon fans)
TJ Hooker (c'mon already, been almost 3 years since first set came out)
War of the Worlds
Would also like to see some shows out in R2 brought over here like 6MDM and Bionic Woman and completed, also M.A.S.K., Visionaries, Ulysses 31 and some other 80's cartoons.
The Bob Newhart Show
Rocky & Bullwinkle
All because they were so close to being finished, I thought they would follow through on them eventually but they haven't to date.
Well, I have to say that my biggest disappointments are Mary Tyler Moore, and Bob Newhart.
Some close seconds would be McMillin and Wife, Quincy, Charlies Angels, SWAT, Baretta, Kojak, Partridge Family and Police Woman. I really, really wanted the entire run of each of those shows.
Hart to Hart
Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer (80's version....Sony only put out the pilot films)
Rocky & Bullwinkle
has anyone released a boxset with nearly 70 DVDs?
