Now that Have Gun Will Travel evidently did well enough to warrant a 2nd season set that I will be buying, how about this Genre crossing favorite? Any Word on this getting out of the vault? I hope Paramount isn't judging the demand by the abysmal Performance of the Lackluster Movie version.

This and Mission Impossible are my two big requests from Paramount. I understand why they are waiting for Mission Impossible 3 movie to come out to release the show. But, what about WWW? The theatrical movie bombed because they changed everything around and it stunk. I just don't understand why this show hasn't been released or announced.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Well...it's not cheap, but Columbia House sells WWW on DVD. I got the first 3 volumes, a total of 9 episodes for 50 bucks. And they started from the first episode. But count me in on season sets!

This was my favorite TV show at the time (and many other people, too). Didn't this show get canned for "excessive violence"? Seems quaint nowadaysPosted Image

I think the doctor bills got too high. Robert Conrad was always making the news with some injury or other, since he refused to use a stuntman. I think he broke his back at least once.

The fact that they could dolly in for tighter closeups on fight scenes and such was one thing that really differentiated this show from others of its time. Despite its fantastic plots and outrageous villains, it had a more realistic feel.

I would buy this, definitely. I would hope for some good commentary from Conrad as well.
