For what it's worth, the Paramount Syndication Bible indicates that, as of last month, HD transfer was begun on Barnaby Jones. Makes me feel good about Cannon, too. (That one still isn't being transferred, but if Cannon were bombing, they wouldn't release Barnaby.)

If so, looking forward to that too! Don't think there's been any news on more Cannon yet, but since it quality-wise already looks pretty battered, I see no reason that would stop it. Hopefully some good news soon, and remember; long live 70s crime TV.

I loved Barnaby Jones.  I hope we see it and more Cannon soon.  Also hope for more Jake and the Fatman.

I agree that Matt Houston was a great show and it ties in since Buddy Ebsen went onto Matt Houston, however it would be nice to keep the thought about Barnaby Jones and whether it is looks like it might finally be coming out. It is way overdue.

Well if it's bombing, it's gotta be because of the damn split season sets. Part of me wants Barnaby Jones, but at 8 seasons, would we got all 8 seasons? I'm willing to bet they'd split the season sets up which would kill any chance of it.

i  am not for split season, beside we have not see anymore of the Streets of San Francisco either. They release season 1 & 2 in volumes. I was not very happy with that approach, but, it does one thing for you and that keeps the dvd costs down.

I would still buy the dvds even if they are split.

How so? The way I figure it, the studios are charging the same price for half the episodes. How does that keep the costs down?

Well the first season was only 13 episodes so I don't think they would split that one but after that I would even buy them split. My main concern would be if they released the full version instead of the syndicated versions. They made some big cuts when they were syndicated and not very clean ones either.

Thanks for the info.  I remember "Barnaby Jones".  I might get that one.  I hope it won't be one of those split/season releases.

Thanks for that great news, Gary!  I know you well enough to know you aren't going to post something like that without solid info, so I'm very excited and looking forward to those releases.

Full season or half season? If it's a full season, I'll be buying. If it's split, it's another show I won't.

That is fantastic news,  I just hope it is true.  Once again season one was only 13 episodes, so I really can't see them spliting that up.

Peggy,

Thanks for the info on S1.  It's been so long since I've seen this show, I forgot that.  It brings up the question about what the price will be for S1.
