    Interesting choices. A couple I'm not familiar with like "Doctors Hospital" and "Sirota's Court".

    Sirota's Court was sort of an early version of "Night Court" from 1976 that had Michael Constantine (Room 222) as the judge.
    There's not a single episode of the show that I know of in collector's circle, other than the opening minutes of one of the first episodes on home recording that also included the first episode of CPO Sharkey and the first episode of the dreadful "McLean Stevenson Show" (one of many bizarre attempts to shove Stevenson down the throats of the public as some kind of star which he wasn't)

    The following are on my wish list as well but they are long shots and most likely will never happen:

    Paramount
    Happy Days- Seasons 2-6 with ALL original music

    FOX
    WKRP in Cincinnati- Complete series with ALL original music
    The Wonder Years- Complete series with ALL original music

    I don't understand why Fox does not look into releasing a limited edition, complete series set of WKRP in Cincinnati & The Wonder Years- is that not possible?! I wonder if they have considered something like this but decided against it because the list price would wind up being something like $1000 if it includes all original music?? Damn these greedy music companies, why can't they lower their asking price for the songs they control- lots of great series have been ruined by inferior releases or in the case of the two shows above will probably never be released due to the unbelievable greed that these companies have.

    RE: WKRP in Cincinnati, didn't MTM Enterprises (when they still owned the show) permanently alter the original 1'' inch master tapes for the show (replace most of the original music), before Fox bought them out?
    So even if Fox wanted to do it right, and the music rights were finally resolved, I don't think they would be able to release them uncut anyways, if this is actually true about the original 1'' inch master tapes.

    In all fairness, no one comes along and tells you or me what we should charge for something we own and some parasitic, blackhearted, money-grubbing music label should have that same luxury. That's not to say that I like it but that's the way it goes.

    The problem is the dynamics of Television,Home Media and Music has changed but the music and publishing companies can't see it! They are still acting like it's decades ago.
    This is the same *Bleep* attitude that got them in the mess with dragging their feet with legal audio downloads (Thank you,Mr Jobs!) Where now one can buy a song cheaper (inflationary) than buying a 45rpm single in the 1980s! (and you're not stuck with a "B" side that you didn't want!).
