    I'll throw another one in here, "Harry O" starring David Janssen and Farah Fawcett-Majors was added to the cast in the last two episodes of the first season.

    2 pilots and 2 seasons of 22 episodes. That may be pushing the short lived series, but this one died before it's time, and I haven't seen the reruns in many, many, many years.

    "O'Hara: US Treasury" 21 Episodes, another David Janssen series from 1972.

    And how about "Bob" from 1992. Bob Newhart plays a bookseller if I remember correctly. 25 S1 episodes and only 8 from season 2 should make for a single release.

    In "Bob" he started out as a comic book artist (they even had a tie-in Marvel comic limited series), and I think they morphed him into working on greeting cards.
    How about some Dabney Coleman series'? Drexell's Class, The Slap Maxwell Story, Madman of the People
    Oh, and some of the series' mentioned in this thread have already been released. Keep a look out for them.

    "Vengeance Unlimited" w/Michael Madsen (Show was great)

    "The Strip"

    "Cobra"

    "Lightning Force"

    "Veritas: The Quest" I saw the unaired episodes. The show was getting real interesting.

    "Special Unit 2" Man, this show was good. Did well in the ratings. But, at the time when the new head of Paramount came in. He hated the show and cancelled its renewal.

    There were actually 10 episodes -- enough to make a sweet DVD release. I'd buy it.

    I didn't really make a list though I did make one mention so let's see what I can come up with...

    My Living Doll

    Julia

    Captain Nice

    Mr. Terrific

    The Deputy

    Birds of Prey

    Spider-Man

    I can't remember now if I ever really watched Birds of Prey but I enjoy most super-hero shows so I may as well include it. Any chance Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific could be released together? Probably not.

    Joe, you're absolutely correct. "George & Leo" from 1997 is the series I'm thinking of, only ran one season with 22 episodes. I suppose I'd probably buy both "Bob" and "George & Leo". I don't remember "Bob", but would make that a blind buy since it has both Bob Newhart and Tom Poston.

    Roger.... I am sure you would enjoy Birds of Prey... I know I enjoyed every episode myself. [​IMG]
    I am not familiar with Captain Nice or Mr. Terrific... those superhero shows as well? Like you I enjoy most superhero shows. [​IMG]

    Gee, I thought you meant short lived shows! I want AUSA. I've never seen a show so heavily hyped that disappeared so fast.

    Pete, Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific aired around the time Batman was on...they were both super-hero comedies. Neither lasted for very long, obviously.

    I really want to see HBO's The Comeback coming to dvd.
    I really really LOVE this show. I think it's hilarious.
    i admit that at the beginning I couldn't watch it, because I found it depressing, but when you realise what character valerie is, the show is superb.

    I watched this while it was on... I thought it was pretty good myself. I would consider getting it on DVD.
