The first TV series in Warner Archives is available for pre-order with The Eleventh Hour - The Complete First Series (2008-2009).  I'm surprised such a recent series gets DVD-R treatment.

Shucks!  When I first read your post I thought for a split second you were talking about the 60's series.  This is a bizarre choice for the Archives, considering it's a newer show.  Gary "I'm interested to see how many discs they will use" O.

Yeah, at first I was stoked because I thought it was the excellent Wendell Corey series which ran from 1962 to 1964 which Warners also owns the rights to I believe since it was an MGM television show.

The Complete First Season (not Series).

Agreed, this is a very surprising choice for the Archives. You would think that new series like this would be offered on Blu-ray and pressed DVD. Price doesn't seem to be too bad.

But wasn't there only one season of the 2008-2009 show? Why call it that, as if there would be a second? It still could be the Corey series; this is the Warner Archive we're talking about, where mistakes are not unknown to happen...

Universal put out the new Knight Rider as season 1, not complete series as well.  I know they should have called it the complete series, but who knows why the suits do what they do.  I am just glad that a TV series is getting a release in the Archive series.  Now lets see the older shows come out like 77 Sunset Strip.

I am with you on 77 Sunset Strip, Hawiaiin Eye, Bourbon Street Beat, Surfside Six, and a ton of older black & white shows that we do not get a chance to see anymore.

PS - let's add Sugarfoot and Bronco to that list also.

As for as movies are concerened I am anxious to see what next Tuesday brings us and what era will they pull from.

No, it's definitely the newer series.

Interesting suggestion. You must be watching Encore Western since these are the primary two westerns currently on that channel.

The Wendell Corey "Eleventh Hour" (both seasons) would have been a no-brainer for me.  I was salivating over the imdb's "episode casts."

If the Archive is going to be doing TV shows, how about Falcon Crest and The Colbys? The Colbys should be especially easy since it is only 2 seasons (49 hour-long episodes in syndication).
Most Wanted on DVD: The Trial of Mary Dugan (1929), Strangers May Kiss (1931),  Letty Lynton (1932), Her Wedding Night (1931), 24 Hours (1931), The Return of Dr. Fu Manchu (1930), Unfaithful (1931),  While the City Sleeps (1928), The Greene Murder Case (1929)

Falcon Crest would be a possibility since it was produced by Lorimar, and Warner now controls those titles.  The Colbys were produced by Aaron Spelling and those rights are controlled by Paramount.   I would not mind an Archive release of the mini-series PEARL (1948) as it was produced by Warner Brothers.

PEARL (1978)--a slip of the keyboard.

 The Morlocks at tcm have reviewed Tourneur's Experiment Perilous (1944) and Anthony Mann's The Tall Target (1951) here:

Both movies sound just like the kind of films I use to eat up and charge away on my credit card. But I'm currently not desperate enough to eat caviar off a stale, overpriced knock-off ritz cracker -- yet.
