    Dear Guys: Playing a memory recall game again. What are some short-lived properties that the WB Archives should consider putting on their release program? We know they've released the: The Yellow Rose Girl From UNCLE Man From Atlantis They are considering: Wizards and Warriors The Lieutenant I would hope they might consider: Young Maverick Bret Maverick Probe/Search Just the Ten of Us Su Superboy(seasons 2-4) Others? James

    I'm still hoping that they will release some of the last 50s early sixties detective shows .Like 77 Sunset Strip,Hawaiian Eye,Surfside Six and so on .

    Ray, they mentioned it on their facebook page a couple of weeks ago, in response to someone's question.

    Ahem. . . . Do you think Young Maverick, might be in their radar? Only eight episodes or less. It's on my "nag" list James

    I have to think there are music issues abounding on those shows. Thankfully, with Good Life having run good portions of those series as well as all of the film that's been available on them for years, most of those series aren't that rare.

    I wouldn't mind getting a chance to pick up the one unaired episode.

    Since The Walton's such a worldwide hit for Warner, how about Ralph Waite's crime drama series The Mississippi (1982-84)? Should secure healthy interest from Waltons fans too. It's Warner Television, also saying Columbia/CBS as distributor so I'm not sure who actually owns it, but I'm guessing it could be a Warner title. If so, it's a good suggestion for archive availability or DVD release. Plus, Harry O of course is a given archive choice from me and many others, standard DVD would be preferable but either way we'll take it.

    One show that's definitely on my 'wanted list' is the 1965-66 NBC sitcom Hank. This had Dick Kallman faking his way into college to support himself and his orphaned younger sister. What really makes it interesting is that it was one of the first sitcoms filmed in color (and I think the first color one at Warner Bros.), and rare among TV shows of that era, was actually allowed to film a concluding episode wrapping up its storyline. I wonder if the folks at the Archive are even aware of this show: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_%281965_TV_series%29 http://www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/42301/cat/1737

    YOUNG MAVERICK and BRET MAVERICK would be fantastic!! I guess if I can't get the original series from WA, I would gladly accept these two spin offs.

    That would be very high on my list as well but I highly doubt anyone at Warner would even know what it is. Very, very rare show. In all my years I've only come across 3 episodes.

    QM "in association with Warner Brothers" means that show is part of the QM library controlled by CBS/Paramount, not Warner Brothers. "Streets Of San Francisco" was also in association with Warner Brothers.

    That sounds like The Manhunter, not Banyon.

    There were several attempts at 30s private eyes in the 70s. Banyon was the coolest IMO because Forster was slick and he drove a beautiful Packard. There was also City of Angels with Wayne Rogers, which was also good. My first post contains a link to the Wiki entry on Banyon.
