My thoughts exactly!
Hill Street would be so nice.
Lots of unreleased Uni stuff is turning up on Netflix, so the transfers are ready.
Well, I didn't expect to have an announcement this soon after writing the article, but here it is...
Adam-12 season 2!
Adam-12 DVD news: Season 2 Coming in September | TVShowsOnDVD.com
so... Universal titles are coming out.
My wife will be very upset when I start getting any and all Simon & Simon releases.
Sounds like something a company like "Timeless" would try to do
How does Netflix get these anyway?
Yes, it does.
Thanks for posting this article, Tony. I hope we start to see some results. I'm ready for some more "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman"!
WKRP?!?! NEVER AGAIN. I bought season 1 because I thought the music changes wouldn't affect the show - I was so wrong. Keep WKRP in syndication world until they could release the unedited original versions of the episodes.
As for stalled shows - give me Mary Tyler Moore, Night Gallery, Beverly Hillbillies, Leave it to Beaver and All in the Family.
Please, please someone release some more Cagney & Lacey, Knots Landing and the final season of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea!
I certainly hope that they are being realistic about it when they shop these series around. You're not going to get the moon for these series. If that's what the studios are looking for, there will be no takers and for good reason.
Adam 12 and a number of series got caught up in the DVD-18 issues that plagued Universal. I remember a number of posts on this forum about people liking the show but refusing to buy it on dvd-18s. I think that's why Adam 12, Dragnet, and others failed. I guess they realized their name was mud and why
McHale's Navy and Ironside was released through Shout.
As to Warner, they have stated they do not license. Man From UNCLE was an exception because I suspect Arena Productions actually had a stronger case for retaining at least partial ownership of dvd rights. The licensing was likely a compromise. Unfortunately most of the Warner shows do not have these issues.
speaking of Warner Bros. they gave up with Mama's Family after only releasing the first season back in 2006. Many people cried foul do to the episodes being the syndicated, instead the originals, but still they could of released a "Best of" like with there TV Favorites line.
Just my luck. Guess which studio abandoned my most-wanted series? That's it, Warner! I'm not asking for much, really, just give me KNOTS LANDING and EVERWOOD and I'll shut up. I'm even willing to let go of LIFE GOES ON if you at least give me these two. Part of me still clings to the very tiny hope that maybe once they're done with DALLAS, they might consider giving KNOTS LANDING another go...
Anyway, here are those I can still hope for, from SONY and FOX:
DIFF'RENT STROKES (SONY)
HILL STREET BLUES (FOX)
THE NANNY (SONY)
NYPD BLUE (FOX)
PARTY OF FIVE (SONY) - was stalled until the recent release of Season 3 but subsequent seasons most probably depend on how well it sold
PICKET FENCES (FOX)
THE PRACTICE (FOX)
ST. ELSEWHERE (FOX)
WHO'S THE BOSS? (SONY)
I seem to collect so many dvds which include many abandoned and stalled shows, some I hope to see more of include:
1-800 Missing - only season 2 was ever released
8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter
All In the Family
America's Next Top Model
Bernie Mac Show
Boy Meets World
Law & Order - not sure if its stalled just been a while since the original series has had a release
Poltergeist: The Legacy
Sweet Valley High
This Is Wonderland
Touched By An Angel
The White Shadow
The Zack Files
Know some are Warner and probs unlikely but here's hoping maybe one day.
I went in much more detail over on the TVGuide.com blog, but here's the "stalled" series I'm waiting on:
Everwood (Please Warner bring out the remaining seasons and with all of the music intact.)
The Fall Guy (with no music replacements or edits)
Jamie Oliver (Poor sales seem to stall any future releases from this British chef. I would love to see more releases like Jamie's Great Italian Escape, Jamie's School Dinners, Jamie's Return to School Dinners, Jamie at Home, The Naked Chef, the remaining episodes of Oliver's Twist, etc.)
Quincy, M.E. (the rest of the series with no music replacement and on single-sided discs)
I Personally have nothing against music replacement if that's the only way a show can come out on DVD!
Same with "Syndication Edits" I have no problem with those either.
Sometimes we have to take what we can get.
That's just what the studios want to hear. Then they can fart out substandard work and expect the rest of us to be grateful. Not me, and not anyone who truly cares about the presentation of their favorite shows.
And who's to say they'll stop at 22 minutes? What's to stop them from presenting a whole season of a show in minisode form? (I'd be appalled, but not surprised, if Sony-Baloney tried to pull that)
The Stalled stuff i would love to see get a 2nd-life so i could complete.
Hill Street Blues
Hart to Hart
The Fall Guy
Simon & Simon
Cagney & Lacey
While we are at it farm out these below to since it seems they are never going to see the light of day:
Eight is Enough
Scarecrow and Mrs. King
Spenser: Fore Hire
Tales of the Gold Monkey
Trapper John, M.D.
I hope Sony is one of the studios considering farming out their library. I have so many of their titles I'd like to finish:
The Flying Nun
and the list goes on...
