    I would love to see old compilations of "The Price is Right" or "Family Feud".

    I was in Las Vegas this summer and they have a live "Price is Right" show that I went to. In between contests, they showed some of the funniest moments from the history of the show and I was dying of laughter. I would love a full compilation of these moments.

    Other thoughts could be "Joker's Wild", "The Match Game", "The Newlywed Game", & "Password"

    Match Game and Family Feud both air a couple times a day or more on GSN. Look for the times in your area. There's also a current Family Feud that runs in syndication. I'm looking forward to the Match Game DVD and I certainly would love to see more game shows come to DVD. A best of Price Is Right would be one I'd love. I also would love to see Jeopardy! which might be tough but I think it could be a good seller if they did a release consisting of celebrity editions.

    It's 30 full episodes ranging from the pilot through the early 80s.

    My Mom and Dad were contestants on "Break the Bank" when they were honeymooning in New York. The show ended before they finished playing, and they had to come back from DC the next week to appear again. We have pictures of them taken from the TV set, but how cool would it be to find a kinescope of that?

    I'd love to give them a copy of that- They just celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary!

    I saw a clip for a game show called Chain Reaction. I don't have a link, but you can search for it on iTunes.

    If Match Game was the best game show of the 70s (which it was), then surely Peter Marshall's The Hollywood Squares was second.

    The Gong Show was the greatest. My friends and I all loved that show when we were in high school in the 70's. I caught some reruns a few years ago on the Game Show network and I still really enjoyed it. I'd buy Gong Show DVDs in a heart beat - I'd want full episodes though, not just clips or highlights.

    I know, me too. I the 70's happened like way before I was born, but it is so amusing to me.
