I would love to see "Spellbinder" on DVD (the 26-part Disney Channel mini-series - not the crappy sequel which didn't air on Disney).

"Pandora's Clock" wasn't mentioned. I would like to see that.

I have the "Alice in Wonderland" musical on VHS, not sure if I would buy though, but I would also like to see it on DVD.

Dave,

Is there a reason why tvshowsondvd.com does not have "Billionaire Boys Club" (Judd Nelson and Ron Silver) on the list ? It hasn't been released on DVD yet, but I still have hope that it will be released someday.

I was astonished to discover that Paramount has released Liberty! The American Revolution on DVD... 10 months ago!?! They really slipped that one in under the radar. By far, the best history-themed miniseries I've ever seen. As I mentioned in my previous post, it's most comparable to Ken Burns' The Civil War only on a more socio-economic/political scale vs. military engagements.

Wow, I'd almost completely forgotten about that one. Anything with Erin Gray can't be bad! Also had Edward James Olmos circa 1978!

"Billionaire Boys Club"

This was the only one that came to mind, not that I would absolutely necessarily buy it, and I'm surprised that (a) it's not on the list and (b) someone else also thought of this!
