    Dear Guys:

    I know we're all anxious to know or see what WB tv shows might come out on the Archives program? Some of the factors we might have to figure in --is that the programs probably wouldn't sell well enough at a Best Buy or Wal-Mart to make back the production costs? This is just speculation/guesses for fun. I have no clues or information on what's coming out.

    Shows I'd like to see come out via archives:

    Maverick
    Search (early seventies series)
    Man From Atlantis (the whole series)
    77 Sunset Strip
    Enos
    Grizzy Adams
    (I believe WB owns the series)
    Surfside Six
    Cheyenne
    Bronco
    Superboy
    (the remaining three seasons).
    Bret Maverick
    New/Young Maverick


    Maybe finish up some animated series that WB started, but sales weren't too good.
    Xiaolin Showdown
    The Zeta Project
    Hey! I liked the shows.

    Maybe even some animated series like
    the Herculoids
    Frankeinstein Jr and the Impossibles
    to see how sales go.

    WB Archives could release one season on one series a month

    Well. . What WB series did I miss? What would you like to see?

    James

    There are so many for me that I can't list them completely now, but your list looks a lot like mine.

    Sea Hunt
    Fury
    Sky King (in an affordable offer online-wide)


    I'd like to see a lot of shows completed. A couple here....

    Leave it to Beaver
    Big Valley

    I think that the archive would be a good way to complete some of these abandoned shows.

    Plus, I'd jump on some unreleased miniseries fast....

    How the West Was Won ('77''79)
    And the Sea Will Tell ('92)

    Those aren't owned by WB but who knows....maybe someday.

    Leave It to Beaver is a universal title and would never be offered in the WARNER Archive series. Maybe Universal would have a similar series for their older shows.

    Oh. I forgot 1983's Wizards and Warriors. One of my big requests.

    In the NY Post article on the Warner Archive, they mention Conflict, a show that ran from 1956-57, sharing its time slot with Cheyenne. That would be a great to see. The show is very rare. I'm happy they're considering it.

    Wow, Conflict? That's great that they even know they have it. I'd also like to see the other 3 series that originally rotated with Cheyenne - King's Row, Casablanca and Warner Brothers Presents. Wouldn't that be something. By the way, is there a link to the article?

    Hate to stink on a parade...but.
    Season sets of old shows on DVDR, no thanks!
    Cause even if they did do this, a season would probably cost $200.
    The movies they have are already over priced. They cost more than most of the Blu-rays i buy.
    Not to mention the fact that DVDR's are not forever (if anything can be)
    I know this DVDR program is a niche, and the price reflects that, so i would imagine TV shows would be more of the same.
    I would rather see a company like SHOUT! release them, on real DVDs.

    My 2 cents for what it worth.

    I think that Warner will try to keep the cost of TV shows in the Arcive reasonable. Otherwise, no one will buy them. Plus Warner has never sub-licensed any of their catalog that I know of.

    I would love to see either incarnation of Casablanca in the archive. I very much enjoyed the early 80s series starring David Soul.

    I would love to see Love Sidney starring Tony Randall. Also more 80's shows that they seem not to care about releasing or continuing to release like Growing Pains & Perfect Strangers.

    Would really prefer real dvds rather than these dvd-rs, and most classic stuff does deserve the real deal anyway, but if it's the only way to get rare and much sought after Warner shows like Harry O, The Yellow Rose and The FBI then so be it. They'll have to lower the prices though or buying a season will cost you a fortune, (un)fortunately the first two shows mentioned here had short runs.

    The 6 disc WB Swing and Jazz shorts is going for $39.95, which would be the likely cost of a tv series season.
