Alright, we have been getting loads of new shows on dvd from Riptide to Cannon. So what 5 shows do you want on dvd? In no particular order and can be shows that were partially released....

1. The Sentinel
2. Special Unit 2
3. Journeyman
4. Time Trax
5. Seven Days
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Randall and Hopkirk: Deceased, Volume 2 (R1)
The Complete Larry Sanders Show
Life On Mars

That's all I can think of at the moment. Oh, and Stargate: SG-1 - The Complete Series slim-cases to replace my seasons 1-8 keep case editions. I need more room!
Movies I would purchase instantly if they were available in their correct aspect ratio:
Death Trap, Innocent Blood, The Shadow, and Remo Williams

Okay, only Five...

01: VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA - SEASON 4 (Complete the series, FOX! There's nothing I want more than THIS!)

02: BATMAN - Adam West (FOX, Warner, and other interested parties, can't you work this out?)

03: HUCKLEBERRY HOUND - SEASONS 2-4 (TV's TRUE pioneering cartoon series deserves more respect, Warner!)

04: THE BUGS BUNNY SHOW - The 1960 prime time, ABC TV version (The Looney Tunes Golden Collections are great, but I'd love to see this reconstructed - even if certain elements are in B&W. To it have in this form, "double-dipping" on WB cartoons would be a pleasure!)

05: FREAKAZOID! The greatest underrated SatAM series ever! (Warner answers my wish next week with Season One - but Season Two was only ELEVEN SHOWS! Let's have 'em all!)

The Wonder Years
Batman (60's)
Spider-man (Live action 70's)
Green Hornet
CHiPs

I also want VTTBOTS Season 4 but there's a good chance it may be out in '09, so I'm not including it in my top 5

For me? Honestly?

5. Falcon Crest. I remember the double bill of Dallas/Falcon Crest fondly from my childhood and hope we will get this again some day.
4. Journeyman. I resisted this show until my fiance finally got me to sit down and try it. Great show killed way before it's time
3. Different Strokes. FINISH THE DARN SHOW, PEOPLE!
2. Wonder Years. I know, I know, music rights are a bear, but this was just such an insanely sweet and well written show, it's a crime not to have it.
1. Batman. 3 seasons. Settle the rights issues and get it out. Yeah, I know, it's a joke these days, but it's a fun joke.

Number one unreleased show has to be Batman (1966). You'd think at the height of Batmania like we are now, the powers that be could have gotten their acts together and put it out. They have one more window to capitalize on the franchise's peak popularity, and that's this fourth quarter. After that, they are only reaping a fraction of what they could have.

Would also like to see The Six Million Dollar Man, the Marvel cartoons from the 60s and something obscure, like David Chase's brief show Almost Grown, circa 1988.

WKRP is not merely incomplete but completely unavailable. What is available is WKRP In Name Only, or WINO.

I suggest you check it out on WGN America. You may be pleasantly surprised...

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.
