I'm waiting for Starsky and Hutch season 4, as well as Love Boat (original series)! I have heard, thankfully, that Fantasy Island will be released! WOOHOO! And more amazingly, American Gothic which has become the holy grail for me. I never in a million years thought it would see release. It is one of the best shows ever put on television, imho.

Just got Adam 12 yesterday! I am tempted to pick up Emergency as well- you can never have too many Jack Webb productions. I already have Dragnet. Let's hope more seasons of all 3 will be released!

There are several sets that I'm waiting to have completed. I just wish that Sony and others would take the same approach as Paramount did with Star Trek (original and the spinoffs). It only took Paramount 4 years to release their entire catalog of Star Trek shows (except the animated series). I don't see why other studios don't do the same thing. Sony especially. Sony has started so many TV on DVD sets that I think it might be a long time before they complete them.

Tremors: The Series
Please, please, please Universal. If it's worth making DTVs, it's worth releasing the single series you produced for TV.

Thanks for writing your list Ryan. I would classify CatDog, The Wild Thornberries, Alex Mack, Animorphs and Hey Arnold as Classic as well.
Allen_Kir- I'm with you for those two Disney Channel series, but I'm losing hope more on Lizzie McGuire than Even Stevens, since they had the movie of the show released to DVD and apparently Christy Carlson Romano hinted about a season release. Lizzie-S1 was announced a year ago, have not had strong sale numbers and Disney hasn't announced anything new since.

The Fugitive (original series)

I'm getting terribly discouraged over the lack of ANY news from the Quinn Martin estate. But this landmark series, if anyone ever gets around to releasing it on DVD, may have to settle for the Barry Morse intros from VHS as "extras" at the rate QM Productions/Worldvision is getting its series on disc.

Morse, Roy Huggins, Richard Anderson, Diane Baker and Jacqueline Scott (Did I miss any?) are the last surviving cast/crew members from this show--the window of opportunity for them to provide any commentary/interviews on it is closing fast.

"Film is not created in a vacuum. Rather, it results from a combination of forces and personalities, coupled with limitations of time, budget, and technology, which all converge in a way that is unique to a moment in time."--Robert Wise

I fear that this will happen with TJ Hooker. There's still 3 whole seasons to release. I hope the current set sells well enough. I just wish studios would release ALL seasons of every TV show that they take on. Don't just release a single season and leave the fans hanging... My Dad is still waiting for the final season of SWAT.

I think companies owe each show a piece of paper saying "season 2 (or whatever) coming ____". Companies like Anchor Bay and Image plan out releases well in advance, and most of these shows have smaller audiences than the shows Sony and co. abandons (does anybody really think Hearts Afire outsold Mad About You?)

There could be a ray of light at the end of the QM tunnel (hope so), re. "The Fugitive" (1963). From info I gathered on a Fugitive newsgroup, evidently Paramount Studios in just a few days will be technically acquiring full video rights to most of the QM Library of programs (inc. The Fugitive).

Here's the blurb (from early August 2005)....

>>> "As of 2005, the Republic Pictures holdings consist of a catalog of 3,000 films and TV series, including the original Republic library (except for the Roy Rogers and Gene Autry catalogs, which are owned by their respective estates), the pre-1973 NBC library (including Bonanza), most of the Quinn Martin shows (The Fugitive, The Streets Of San Francisco, etc.), and Aaron Spelling's catalog (The Love Boat, Twin Peaks, Beverly Hills 90210, etc.), and selected pre-1952 UA (High Noon, Copacabana, etc.) and NTA holdings (Fleischer cartoons, It's a Wonderful Life, etc.). These are now sold on video through Lions Gate Home Entertainment, while Paramount Pictures holds television and theatrical distribution rights. In September of 2005, Paramount will gain full use of the Republic library as they will inherit the video rights from Lions Gate." <<<

Well, Paramount could always get some commentaries from some of the surviving Fuge guest stars, including Suzanne Pleshette, who adored David Janssen immensely, and, in fact, was even going to co-star in a TV series opposite David when Janssen died at age 48 in early 1980. Suzanne's comments re. her two excellent Fuge guest roles ("World's End" and "All The Scared Rabbits") would be quite illuminating I would surmise.

Bill Shatner, Ed Asner, Angie Dickinson, Robert Duvall, Ron Howard, and Kurt Russell also each put in guest appearances on The Fugitive. Hearing any of their thoughts about working on that show would also be nice. Russell played Lieutenant Gerard's son ("Phil Jr.") in the episode "Nemesis" (a fave of mine). Re-uniting Barry & Kurt for a DVD commentary would be simply fab.

There was a rumor in 2002 or 2003 that both Barry Morse and Jackie Scott were set to do some audio commentaries for a Fuge DVD set. But I have a feeling (given the length of time that has now passed) that that was simply a "Wishful Thinking" kind of rumor that had little to no degree of truth in it. But, we can always hope -- because having Barry's observations on DVD would be ideal IMO. He's quite a gabber too. Posted Image

BTW, speaking of The Fugitive, today (August 29) marks the 38th anniversary of the airing of (at that time) the most-watched single TV program in history -- "The Judgment" -- which was the final Fuge episode. 26-Million people tuned in to see Richard Kimble exonerated.

When "The Fugitive Season 1" eventually does arrive on DVD (and it will, I have absolutely no doubt about that fact; because the show is just too dang good to be left out in the cold forever IMO), I'd enjoy seeing the famous "Kimble Wanted" poster being used as a portion of the DVD front-cover artwork. ......

Fox tried the paper slip thing with Season 1 of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. It advertised Season 2 for March 2003. The set released July 2005. It doesn't always work.
