    It was mentioned on Stu's Show last week, that negotiations are going on between Shout Studios and Universal to sub-let some of their properties.

     

    What Universal shows/programs would you like to see come out?

     

    Personally, I find myself thinking:

     

    The Magician

    Fantastic Journey

    Otherworld

     

    Hmm. I think those shows are owned by Universal.

    The Magician is from Paramount, don't think they sub-let at this point unfortunately. Would be great to have it, both Bixby and Jack Arnold directed episodes.

    More Universal properties?

     

    Well, there are three Universal titles that only need one more release to finish their runs altogether. "Hardy Boys", "Night Gallery" and "Baa Baa Black Sheep/Black Sheep Squadron." I wouldn't mind if they could get picked up to close the books on them, but if we were talking about titles with less of their run or nothing, I would pick:

     

    -Kojak

    -Switch

    -Operation Petticoat (Jamie Lee Curtis's presence could help on this)

    -McCloud

    -Cliffhangers

    There is Hardy Men movie schedule for production and this could mean the last season of the hardy boys could be released. I also like to see the 1969 Hardy boy cartoon released along with with the S3 of the hardy boys.

     

    I like to see the final season of night gallery release as well. I have the 1st and 2nd on dvd. I am also looking at tales from the darkside as well down the road or when i can fit that series into my budget.

    Certainly whatever is left of the NBC Mystery Movies (not sure what the status is of Timeless's plans for Hec Ramsey). Also the rest of Quincy, Night Gallery and Hitchcock. Since idle dreams are free, let me also throw in Blacke's Magic, The Outsider and The Name of the Game. I would love to see Switch, too. Did anyone ever find out which company was rumored to have licensed It Takes A Thief? That one would be high on my Universal wish list, but would also be an opening for Switch, as they probably have a lot of fans in common.

    The only Universal title I had any interest in was Gimme a Break and I just got the terrific Canadian complete series set. Funny how the best stuff always comes from countries other than your own.

    Definitely some great picks, Lee. With Hec Ramsey being up in the air (in terms of who might be looking to release it - or not), I'd ask Shout to check into it. Quincy for sure. Since Timeless does have a good dealing going right now with Uni in terms of many westerns, I'll only mention one that I'm not sure is on Timeless's radar at present: Wide Country. I don't know if they'd be interested in some 50's sitcoms that are not as well known as others, but here's a small list I'd include: Meet Mr. McNutley, Bachelor Father, The Bob Cummings Show and the very rare Pride of the Family (with its Christmas episode I don't have).

    Same here. VEI released both Kate & Allie and Gimme a Break so I'm all set with Universal. More of what I want, unfortunately, is with Sony. Hopefully, Shout will continue more of their classic tv shows and maybe pick up some new rarer ones.

    If we are bringing in the shorter-lived titles, I second this one! I'd also add The Law and Harry McGraw and The Jake Effect (a charming 7-episodes Jason Bateman series that was never aired at all until a brief cable run years after it was produced). And I already mentioned Blacke's Magic, so I suppose I already had a short-lived series in there...

    Top of my list would be Quincy, M.E., followed by The Law & Harry McGraw (Universal are releasing the final season (not including the four TV movies) in November), Richie Brockelman, Private Eye (Universal have released all six seasons of The Rockford Files and the first four TV movies on DVD) and Whiz Kids (which did a crossover episode with Simon & Simon, Jameson Parker guest starring as AJ Simon).

    B.J. & The Bear. This is ranked 25th on the list of unreleased shows over at tvshowsondvd.com. When I last checked,around a couple of months ago, it was ranked 36th. So,obviously,there's a demand for it. Amen with Sherman Helmsley. The Universal property that I'd most like for Shout to release,though, would be seasons 6 - 10 of SNL,and any others that Lorne Michaels may want to skip over.

    Now SF! released the first two seasons of law show The Paper Chase, I would love to see them do Universal's really brilliant Owen Marshall (1971-74) with Arthur Hill and Lee Majors. John Denver guest starred in an episode.

    I forgot to include In Search Of... in my above post. Not sure why this hasn't been released while so many similar shows have; Unsolved Mysteries, Psi Factor,etc.

    Isn't The Paper Chase owned by FOX?

    Yes, I just made the parallel to it because it's a law show too and out from them.
