Here's four more that come to my mind....

1. Voyagers- remember that time travel series from the early eighties?

2. Dark Shadows - the one from the early 90's with Ben Cross as Barnabas Collins.

3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - With Bruce Boxleitner and Kate Jackson.....I'm especially fond of the episodes that took place on location in Europe since I vacationed there at the time of their filming.

4. Riptide - 80's detective show starring Joe Penny, Perry King and Thom Bray.....who could forget the Screaming Mimi?

Keep 'em coming......Posted Image

I already have that release Posted Image. In the UK and Australia that show was called Ali G in Da USAiii.

I imported it from the UK as it's not available here in Australia. It's a 2-disc set with stacks of extra unseen material. Some of it is very explicit, eg. Borat showing naked pictures of his "wife" to shocked Southerners, asking people if he could buy slaves, acting gay at a football stadium in Alabama, etc. Classic stuff.

I also imported Bling Bling, which is the only disc to feature his infamous charity interview with David and Victoria Beckham, where he asked them if they'd bone for charity. He continually questioned David Beckham's sexuality during the interview, which is ironic given his current circumstances.

Another vote for Grosse Pointe , which was far too good to be cancelled after one season.

He & She - 1967 sitcom starring Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss

The Legend of Lizzie Borden - 1975 made-for-TV movie starring Elizabeth Montgomery. (Paramount)

Daria - complete season sets with opening and closing credits for each episode, plus all the original music. (Of course, I doubt that MTV would be willing to negotiate all those music rights...)

Gidget - I thought this would have been released by now.

A so-so 16mm transfer print of the "Get Christie Love" pilot is out in the bargain bins. I got a copy at Walmart for $3.

Don't know how obscure it would be considered but i'd love to see the british Who's line is it anyway

I'd also second Police Squad.

Rumor has it that when LBS put "Gidget" back into syndication in the 1980's, Sally Field attempted to have it withdrawn. If that's true, she would likely fight against any DVD release as well.

Philip Marlowe, Private Eye is already available on dvd as a complete set.

I'd also like to see Dinosaurs along with Square Pegs.

First off...

The Cape - Anyone remember this drama about NASA and the space shuttle? It ran back-to-back in syndication with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Take-Off Tuesdays) in my area several years ago.

Tokyo Pig - Several months ago, TVShowsOnDVD.com confirmed that Buena Vista was planning releases of this brilliantly-crafted anime. Since then, I have heard nothing...

Gidget - I agree with above posters. This is a sweet, funny show.

The Tick (Animated) - With the live-action show out for over a year, the lack of a release for this is inexcusable.

Histeria! - From the team (I think) that made Animaniacs and Pinky & The Brain this show was funny and eductational at the same time.

Dave the Barbarian - This show has been buried by Disney Channel into late-night time slots. Too bad, it's quite creative.

Life With Lucy - As a Lucille Ball fan, I wouldn't mind seeing this.

The Brady Brides - Obscure spin-offs are fun, aren't they?

I'll second Daria. But where's Animaniacs? Pinky and the Brain?

I remember it. Corbin Bernsen was in it, right? I never got to watch it, even once. I always intended to, but it was just on at the wrong time. And those were pre-TiVo days.

I think it only ran for a year or two. I think the chances of DVD or even a re-syndication run are pretty much zero.

Action! Short lived but great.

Land of the Giants- I was very young but I would reproduce the effect with my GiJoes stomping on my Train set

So? Let her fight. It isn't like she has either the legal right or the industry clout to do anything more than whine while the DVDs are released - whereas she would do herself more good in P.R. terms by participating in the extras for any such release.

Didn't I read something about release plans for The Time Tunnel recently?

I'd love to see Dennis Leary's police comedy/drama The Job, which I hadn't even heard of until long after it was cancelled. Maybe if his new show Rescue Me (about the NYFD instead of the NYPD this time around) does well, somebody will release the earlier one.

Regards,

Joe

I'm not sure if these can be considered obscure, but...

Small Wonder
Mr. Belvedere
Out of this World
Dinosaurs
Just the Ten of Us
Get a Life
Herman's Head
The Adventures of Pete & Pete
Parker Lewis Can't Lose

I'd also like to see some of the ABC After School Specials on DVD. I'd also buy a DVD that had all the Partnership for a Drug-Free America public service announcements from the 80s and early 90s on it. Those guys created some crazy ads over the years, I'll tell ya...the new ones are boring, tho. :-/

I'd even be interested in a DVD with the "Bicentennial Minutes" which ran nightly on CBS during the mid 70's.
