I put a little list together of shows with 100 or more episodes that have not be released on DVD without any complete season sets. No best ofs. No "TV favorites". Only U.S. releases.

     Well, if you look carefully at the list, a few things become apparent. Many shows are either controlled by Warner or Fox, 2 companies that really don't do a lot with catalogue titles. Also apparent are the large number of fifties shows, which just do not have enough recognition with the majority of the DVD buyers to make them profitable. Only a handful of the shows are CBS/Paramount, which really is the only company these days that's been aggressive with their properties. And of those, Barnaby Jones should be announced some time soon.

Well, its a year later and we can knock the following titles off of the list:   State Trooper, Dennis the Menace, The Virginian, Barnaby Jones, Marcus Welby, Highway Patrol, Webster, Sergeant Bilko, Falcon Crest, Family Matters and Six Million Dollar Man. Hopefully with the Warner shows, we will begin to see some movement with the BOD program with regards to TV series and many will come from that route.

Tales Of Wells Fargo though never had a "complete season" release.    It was just a "best of" for the color season without being the complete one in addition to the "Best Of" for the other seasons.

  Well, the reason for the "best of" on the Color hour season was the fact that Universal only stuck up color prints for some of the episodes, and the rest were in B&W when they aired on the Canadian "Lone Star" channel.

Pardon me for asking, but where is Naked City? It DID get some releases back in the early days of TV on DVD, but never a complete season that I'm aware of. Plus everything that was released is out of print.

I guess it's a little hard to consider Naked City when it still has collectively 60% of its hour long run out.

     That also brings up the point as to if its considered as 2 series or as one. The 39 half hours have always been syndicated separately from the 99 hours so for the sake of my list, I looked at them as 2 separate entities, thereby leaving the hours one short of making the centennial mark.

Getting better but there's still an awful lot of shows that had very long and successful runs that have not come out in even one season set.

I'd be interested (to one degree or another) in every one of the top 10 shows listed; 18 of the top 30; and 23 out of the entire updated list above. Technically, In the Heat of the Night should come off the list because the first (short) season has been released.  But I'd dearly love to see the entire series released and would buy it in a heartbeat.

I know this doesn't really count, but "My Secret Identity" had 72 episodes with no DVD's I'd love to finally get season sets of this show. Maybe the possibility of some cast commentaries. or reunion videos.

Yes, Empty Nest (170) and Batman (120) certainly should be added.

i did some investigating, cuz i did not think that highway to heaven had been released. here in the states and one other area, the first 3 seasons were done, but the syndicated versions were used. they did not release 4 and 5, due to poor sales. in europe, the broadcast versions were used. and the whole show was released, and did well. now, let me see - here in the states where it was made and has memories, it was not liked. but in europe, where they probably never had seen it before, it sold well. now i wonder if the one difference of syndicated versus actual show made any difference ???????????????
