    I'd buy a "Best of" of McCale's Navy, but I'd buy "Season Sets" of Sgt. Bilko!

    I'd buy season sets for both, especially Sgt. Bilko which is longer over due.

    2 classic sitcoms that I would buy in a second. But not the colorized McHale's Navy episodes, only the black and white originals. Put those crayons away!

    I've never seen an episode of Sgt. Bilko or McHale's Navy... I've seen snippets of the movie McHale's Navy... but that's as far as I have gone.

    Another vote for season sets of "Bilko." Phil Silvers was one of the greats.

    The Phil Silvers Show but only very mild interest in McHale's Navy. I would have to be totally caught up on all my other purchases. And, given how many DVDs I just had to sell in order to get my laptop, that will take me years.

    I've got a good quantity of "The Phil Silvers Show" shows on VHS when I bought them through Columbia House. (They would send a new tape each month which had a couple of episodes on each tape.) The shows are restored and the video on them is excellent. With that in mind, it wouldn't be that difficult to cut some DVD masters. I just wonder if it's cost effect to do so. How many people in today's day and age know who Sgt. Bilko is and are interested in DVDs? ("No, not that Sgt. Bilko with Steve Martin.")

    How many units would they need to sell to break even? Lots of current TV shows yet to be released, still I guess there's no harm in hoping...

    St. Bilko -- You'll Never Get Rich would be great. I loved that show.
