We haven't done this for a while so I thought I'd throw it out for discussion again.  What are your top 5 stalled out/abandoned shows that you wish would be completed?  If you have less than five go ahead and list them anyhow.
1) Rawhide - For me it has to start with this series.  It's been a huge favorite of mine and I really am heartbroken that CBS stalled this one out.  The writing, acting and outdoor shooting that took place in this show is phenomenal and I'd like to see more.
2) Leave it to Beaver - Thank you Shout Factory for making it possible for me to cross this one off the list!

3) Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - It's unfathomable (no pun intended) that Fox has left this one sitting out there with only a half season remaining.

4) Big Valley - This one doesn't sting quite as much as the others only because I have good prints off Encore Western.  Still, I think this was the first show that was abandoned at the half-way point of a season.  Thanks Fox. /img/vbsmilies/htf/rolleyes.gif

5) Hazel - I have to admit I could have put many other series in this fifth slot, but I wanted to be an equal opportunity complainer and Sony needed to be represented so I picked this one.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/drool.gif

Best of the rest for me personally (and in no particular order):

Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (I just want more of these - period)
Lassie (ibid)
Lone Ranger
Love, American Style
The Real McCoys
Green Acres
Beverly Hillbillies
Petticoat Junction
Happy Days
Rifleman (I include this one because MPI never did get all the eps released)
Naked City (same as above, only insert Image instead of MPI)
Flipper
McCloud
Swamp Fox
Elfego Baca
Cheyenne
Mr. Peepers
Make Room for Daddy
Chips (just wanted the 3rd season for the Christmas episode - errr)
Dragnet
Kojak
Here Come the Brides
The Lawless Years

And on and on it goes.  There are many others I could have listed, but these are enough to start with.  What are your top 5?

1. Oliver's Twist

2. The Fall Guy - I'm still not over the handling of Season 1.  I would love to see the remaining seasons released, but only if going forward the original broadcast music is intact.  Season 2 is where this series really took off with Markie Post.

I have no particular ordering:

- Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (season 2 cancelled last Fall so I would consider it stalled)
- Hill Street Blues (bought the 2 pack on a whim a while back and had forgotten how good this was)
- Big Valley
- Rifleman
- Lassie
- Green Hornet (Williams/Lee)
- Rawhide
- Flipper
- Petticoat Junction

Dave B Ferris, HGWT Season 4, Volume 1 is coming out this Spring so you have one no longer stalled, and I thought it was stated that more Gunsmoke should be on the way as well.

Forgot about Baretta, I need to add that to my list for at least the one season available.

Another would be the Equalizer. I haven't seen it in a long time and know only one season is available.

Leave It To Beaver
Growing Pains
Amazing Stories
Dream On

While Three's Company was completed I would still love to have both spin-offs: The Ropers and Three's A Crowd.

I would also like WB to start releasing their classic Hanna-Barbera sets again. Would love to more Huckleberry Hound, and shows like Atom Ant, Secret Squirrel, etc.
