    Let me correct myself before someone else does. I meant to say 16mm. You will have to pardon me but I was a projectionist at a theater for 14yrs so I can't get the 35 out of my mind.

    Most of my point was regarding one season sitcoms although I mentioned other passingly. Out of your extensive list here, how many sitcoms are there.Only 3. My point is well proven.50's - 80's - Good Morning World, Gidget, When Things Were Rotten, Police Squad, and maybe 2 or 3 others. But your "smart" reply to an educated post is "much" appreciated. Nice attitude.

    I didn't know LJS was Incomplete.

    I know Dusty's Trail is spread out on two of Mill Creek's Western shovelware collections.

    Come to think of it I believe Stories of the Century and Tate are also One-Season Shows that are out on DVD, but once again they are spread through Multiple "Shovelware" sets by Mill Creek.

    Here is the list of one season shows that I have in my collection.

    The Planet of the Apes
    Tabitha
    Quark
    Pink Lady and Jeff
    The Rich Little Show
    The Richard Prior Show
    Van Dyke and Company
    The Snoop Sisters
    The Man From Atlantis
    The Invisible Man
    Ellery Queen
    Shaft
    Logan's Run
    Bridget Loves Bernie
    Battlestar Galactica
    Galactica 1980

    While there are only three sitcoms on that list, it is certainly more than I had expected and the entire list is certainly more that I ever expected to have.

    Actually, The Fantastic Journey was scheduled for release several years back (in Region 2), but the company that had the rights over there went under before it could happen.

    I'll go out on a limb and say "Cover Up", the one season CBS series where Jon-Erik Hexum lost his life. The use of popular music (the theme and within episodes, even if done as covers) is probably what will forever keep it from being released at all.

    A Great list. I'd love to have a bunch of em (especially He and She and T.H.E. Cat). I just wish we a snowball's chance on most of these.

    Boy, some of those titles take me back! I can still hum the theme song to The Double Life of Henry Phyfe. Been trying to do something about that for nearly 50 years!

    Another series I'm kind of shocked that has never been released is "Relativity". Does anyone here remember it? It was on in the fall of 1996 and starred Kimberly Williams and David Conrad as two Americans who meet while in Italy, fall in love, and try to make it together when they go back home to the states.

    I know it was from the same folks who made "My So-Called Life" and "Thirtysomething", and the latter two have been released, so I'm at a loss to figure out why this hasn't been since, like MSCL, it ran only one season. I don't recall any really heavy popular music use in the episodes, so for whatever reason, this show is likely just collecting dust in a vault.

    If you are referring to the 1970's variety show, one volume of the Best of Donny & Marie has been released. For some reason, probably poor sales, further sets were not released. Also released at the same time was their 1978 Christmas Special.

    If you are referring to their talk show, then it may not ever see a release. Outside of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, there hasn't been very many talk shows released. I'd love to see a release of the 70's Dinah Shore or Merv Griffin Shows.

    At one time there was talk of a Best of Dinah Shore being released but that never materialized.

    some of these shows i dont know, or at least the titles of the shows bring back no memory.

    but i forgot all about occasional wife and love on a rooftop. and i have no recall of them, other than i recall that i liked them, as a kid.

    this is one of the best things about this site and "old-time" events or conversations - stuff comes back that is buried in our sub-conscious, but that which we have "completely forgotten about" !!!!!

    and the second hundred years - i do recall, but again had slipped my mind. if that is the one where monte markham is restored back to life after having been in a deep freeze for 100 years ? that was cute - and it had a good premise for the show.

    Yes, that was the premise, with the kicker being that his GRANDSON is the spitting image of the "old" man and his son played by Arthur O'Connell looks like he should be Markham's father, not son.

    Markham as the grandson was a straight-laced, uptight fellow and Markham as the grandfather was a free-wheeling, laid-back, easy-going type.

    I remember the promos that played all summer long before the premiere: Dad and son are walking down an urban street. The son uses some sixties slang word that Grandpa doesn't understand and the son says "That's a new language called 1967." Then Grandpa spots a girl walking down the street wearing a micro-miniskirt and asks, "Is that a part of the language?" to which the son replies "That's very MUCH a part!"

    And I remember the opening credits explained the series premise using what appeared to be the avalanche footage from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
