The Legend of Billie Jean good choice! I could not wait any longer so i made my own custom dvd from Universal HD who was showing it quite abit in recent months. Very nice looking transfer to, just puzzles me why it has not been released to date.

Yeah, If I could finish those 15 titles, that would be it. I'd be done.
Probably not much else I'd request.
Of course there are the ones I know are hopeless cases such as:

Hunter (This one REALLY pisses me off considering all the stuff relased from Cannell that I've never heard of)

Who's The Boss
Night Court
Mary T. Moore

I Picked up Riptide, but I just can't get into it..

I think I'm down to only two.

Max Headroom and (I know it's a long shot, but) More NYPD Blue.

There will probably be more on my list at some point, but those are the only two that are still on my wish list.

Limiting my list to just five per James' request:

1) Once and Again - Season 3
2) The Adventures of Pete & Pete - Season 3
3) A Different World - Seasons 2+
4) Exes & Ohs - Season 1
5) South of Nowhere - Seasons 1+

Okay, since everyone else is cheating and listing way more than five Posted Image , here are a couple more:

-The Tracey Ullman Show (I loved this show and haven't seen it in forever. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.)
-Life - Season 1

I just need seasons 4 and 5 of Gomer Pyle, the forth and final season of Wild Wild West and the last three seasons of Green Acres along with the final season's of night Gallery. Then it is back to spending all of my money on 30's-50's classic movies.

Oh and I will pick up the 1st season of Newhart and the last season of I dream of Jeannie when they come out. No plans to carry on past season 5 for Bewitched. Sienfeld is now complete along with News Radio, Hogan's heroes, Giligan's Island, The Andy Griffith Show first five seasons, The Outer Limits, and The Twilight zone original and 80's.

Also I would pick up any and all future releases of the New Outer limits from the 90's if any more seasons are released past the first season. I have the first season and the best of box set. I would also like to see the last two seasons of the Bob Newhart show released.

Since a lot of my 'most wanteds' have already made it out in some form or fashion, the top of my wish list would be for abandoned series to resume
Rod Serling's Night Gallery
McMillan & Wife

for new to dvd series, I'd most like to see
Mayberry R.F.D.
Salvage 1 (rumoured to be coming)
Batman (someday it has to come)
Batman (Filmation cartoons)
Andromeda (60s Brit sci-fi with Julie Christie in the lead)
Marvel 60's Superheroes cartoons

For Made For TV movies
The Ghost Of Flight 401
A bunch more from the early 70s I don't have the names of, but I would love to see a big box set of em.

and of course, anything that's been started should be finished- especially all the CBS/Paramount split season material

I'm just starting to watch the ANDY HARDY series on TCM, so I'd like to get that whole series on DVD.

I need the rest of THE ODD COUPLE season sets.

I don't know why WILLARD (1971) has never made it to DVD, but I'd like to get it along with its sequel, BEN (1972).

I want the rest of the old 30s and 40s horror films that UNIVERSAL owns, especially ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (1933) and possibly a nice release of the Library of Congress print of THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932).

I'd like to see Batman (1966) and The Green Hornet, as well as at least two more seasons of NYPD Blue (that'd be Seasons 5 & 6).

Oh yes, and The Beatles' animated series.

Early Edition
Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place
Oliver's Twist - the remaining episodes need a DVD release
Jamie's School Dinners (aka Jamie's School Lunch Project) - I don't believe the follow-up special, "Jamie's Return to School Dinners", has aired here in the States, but it should also be included.
Jamie's Great Italian Escape (aka Jamie's Great Escape)
The Naked Chef (Jamie's first series)
Jamie at Home (Jamie's current series that just ended in the UK)
Danger Bay
Peacemakers - Either Universal or licensed to Shout!, it's long-overdue for a complete series release.
The Fall Guy S2-5 - Fox, please don't edit at all the remaining seasons, or replace any music.
Quincy S3-8 - I really hope Shout! Factory can license this from Uni. As I said on their forum, the subsequent seasons need single-sided and complete releases.
The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis - Released in season sets and a Dwayne Hickman fan dying to have this "classic" on DVD in its original form.
Jake 2.0
Father Dowling Mysteries (including the TV movie pilot)
Flash Forward
Promised Land (including the final Touched by an Angel/Promised Land crossover episodes on an unannounced S5 of TBAA)
Time Trax
Valerie/Valerie's Family/The Hogan Family (season sets)
Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection Vol. 3 - WB needs to issue a disc replacements program.
John Doe
Mysterious Ways

I would like to add that all the major studios (please) before you bring these series to DVD, do your research, and present them as they were originally aired and with no music replacements. This was one of my biggest gripe about 2007. IMO, it has been a poor year for TV-on-DVD.

As for the TV movie front:

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1980 made-for-TV movie adaptation of Washington Irving's classic novel, starring Jeff Goldblum) - Someone needs to remaster this and finally bring it out on DVD.
Separate release for the two MacGyver TV movies

Well, the shows I'd like to see get finished in 08 are:

The Rockford Files (2 seasons left)
The Wild Wild West (1 season left)
That Girl! (2 seasons left)
Charlies Angels (2 seasons left)
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1 season left)
The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1 season left)
The Partridge Family (2 seasons left)
Rocky and Bulwinkle (2 seasons left)
That 70s Show (1 season left)
The Bob Newhart Show (2 seasons left)

Those are some of the shows that I'm collecting that I'd like to see finish next year.

Other shows that I'm collecting that I'd like to see at least 2 more seasons released next year are:

The Mary Tyler Moore Show
Baretta (at this point, probably a lost cause)
SWAT (another lost cause)
Barney Miller
All in the Family
The Muppet Show (at least one more season next year)
Kojak (another lost cause)
McMillan & Wife (another lost cause)
Quincy (again, another lost cause)
Police Woman (doubtful, but would still like to see it)
The Incredible Hulk (at least season 3)
Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (at least 2 more volumes)
The Rookies (at least season 2)
Welcome Back, Kotter (season 2 and 3 would be great)
Love American Style (at least 2 more volumes)

Shows that haven't been released yet:

The Six Million Dollar Man
The Bionic Woman
Eight is Enough
Chico and the Man
Room 222
The Courtship of Eddie's Father
Rich Man, Poor Man (both mini series)

I realize that most of the shows I want to continue next year are probably lost causes but it would be nice if the studios at least made an effort to continue them. Especially since a few of them only have one or two seasons left to complete.

As for the new shows, well considering the Mary Tyler Moore situation, I can probably kiss Rhoda adn Phyliss goodbye. Ditto Room 222. If all of my new shows get released, I've pretty much completed my wish list of 70s tv shows on DVD. That's not to say I've completed my collection. Far from it. I still have to complete each of those series on DVD but having them released would be a great step toward finishing the collection.
