    Well. . . It seems there aren't too many surprises coming up in the next few months. I got Tales of the Gold Monkey via Amazon the other day, but outside of Ellery Queen, and then later Six Million Dollar Man, the Bionic Woman, in the fall; I don't know what to make of some later releases.


    If the other Kroft releases go through, I'll pick up Far Out Space Nuts and the Lost Saucer.


    I'm still hoping When Things Were Rotten might make it out in 2011, perhaps Legend, Salvage 1; but I wouldn't bet my life on it.


    Yet, the releases this year (still in a depressed economy, various services being overhauled, and now the Oil Mess in the Gulf, we have nothing to complain about, Do we?

    The restarting of "Dragnet" and "McMillan And Wife" rate as big deals for me this year in addition to the fact that "Ellery Queen" is coming.

    My best hopes are simple:


    Complete "The Fugitive" and release "Harry O."


    I expect only the first will happen -- but I can dream, can't I?

    Complete the Fugitive, VTTBOTS, Route 66, and The Untouchables.

    Fugitive sounds good to me but with completly restored music.


    I'd also like to see the rumored complete "Rifleman" set but we haven't heard anything about that one in a long time. I think that was supposed to have been a possibility last year.


    I'd like to see the complete "Sky King" set available in a wide online store release. I can't afford that exclusive outlet price of $260 (incl shipping).


    And, the complete R1 set of "Fury" but I'm thinking about getting the German (English language track) release of that one.


    More:


    Barney Miller

    Big Valley

    Black Sheep Squadron (final 13 episodes not released)

    Dennis the Menace

    Donna Reed Show

    The Equalizer

    Falcon Crest

    Fall Guy

    Fantasy Island

    Hardy Boys (last 10 episodes)

    Lassie Complete series, or at least all of the "Jeff" & "Timmy" years

    Lone Ranger

    Love Boat

    Mannix (this one looks like it'll continue)

    Mike Hammer (1984)

    Naked City (complete season sets)

    Perry Mason (another one that looks good)

    Rawhide

    Scarecrow & Mrs King

    Sea Hunt

    Untouchables (most likely will complete)

    Who's the Boss

    Welcome Back Kotter


    That's all I can think of right now :)


    It's been, imo, a better year so far than I'd have first thought, Leave it to Beaver, A-Team (complete, s/s discs), Tales/Monkey, Bionic series (coming maybe late this year), Alias Smith/Jones, Barnaby Jones, more Matlock, more Adam-12, Falcon Crest (finally), Flipper.....

    Bless you, Jeff. I hope your shows do come out. I'd like to see High Chapparel (in the US), Twelve O'Clock High, Garrison's Gorillas come out.


    Much more animation: Saturday Morning in the 70's and the 60's Volume 3, Saturday Morning in the 80's volume 2, Duck Dodgers, Frankeinstein Jr and the Impossibles, Pinky, Elmira, and the Brain, etc.


    Well. . . . We can dream can't we?

    I'd like to think Dennis the Menace is a real hope for 2011. I would think that has to be on the radar of a publisher like Shout Factory.


    With their dealings with Sony on programs like The Facts of Life and the popularity of the program (Among missing 50s and 60s classics on DVD, Dennis the Menace is very high up on many individual's want list), I can't imagine Shout Factory not giving it serious consideration. It's also a perfect length (4 seasons) that would stand a healthy chance of seeing completition.


    The only thing it has going against it is I presume whoever publishes the program will have some licensing fees to whoever owns the Dennis the Menace character and concept.

    In addition to The Fugitive and Harry O, would also like to add the miniseries Churchill: The Valiant Years and the TV movie City in Fear. That last has only been out in a VHS tape at EP speed and has a great cast: David Janssen, Robert Vaughn, Susan Sullivan, Perry King, William Daniels, and "introducing Mickey Roarke."

    For in-progress titles I am glad that this year will bring Five-O S9 and "Nine Dragons" to DVD, and that "Adam-12" will get to S5 and be on track for completion next year.


    I am hoping "Ironside" will get to S4 and the end of the Barbara Anderson era. And maybe the release of "The Big Valley" movie will get that show restarted at last.


    With many one and done title favorites of mine getting restarted, the one of recent release comparatively I am now antsy about is "Burke's Law" which would be complete with its second season ("Amos Burke Secret Agent" I can do without)

    I keep hoping they will complete Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea!


    Also, I would really like Warner to release complete series of the shows they have been sticking random episodes of into their "Saturday Morning" releases. Espescially Marine Boy.

    Well, I have a small hope that Maverick will begin, based on what was stated by WB execs a while back - that being that Maverick is actually being looked at for season release.


    Would like to see Big Valley out, as well.


    Of course the live action 60s series BATMAN is on the list.


    I would also like to see Garner's series NICHOLS released, probably have to be by Shout!


    Dobie Gillis, Dennis The Menace, Sanford (sequel to Sanford & Son) - that would all make this collector very happy, indeed!!

    Well I'm hoping the original Hawaii Five-O continues next year on DVD, along with The Equalizer, Knots Landing, Mannix and Simon & Simon. I would like to see Mission: Impossible 1988-90 along with Whiz Kids released next year. And Midnight Caller begin being released on DVD too.

    Guys, Do you think the majority of our most beloved stuff is already out on DVD? I don't know.
