Does anyone have any inside information if Paramount is going to release Cannon Season 3 Volume 1 on DVD?  I sure hope the excellent 3rd Season of Cannon gets released on DVD.  Any information on Cannon Season 3 Volume I is appreciated!


Take Care!


Robert

For some reason I feel good about a S3, V1 release in early fall.  In fact, it wouldn't surprise me at all to get an announcement either later this month or sometime in July.

Hey thanks for the info Gary!  I hope you are correct and I know you have an outstanding track record on early information like this.  Gary, any information on Barnaby Jones 2 or The Streets of San Francisco Season 3 Volume 1?  I wonder if Barnaby Jones will get a full Season 2 release instead of in Volumes?  Also, I am on Season 2 of Daniel Boone and I really enjoy the show now just like I did watching it as a kid.  I got Seasons 1-5  from Christian Books for $50.00 last year on the basis of your post about it.  Thanks again!  I always like reading your posts.


Take Care!


Robert

Wouldn't be nice if Cannon were being delayed because they're remastering it this time?

I would like more Jake and the Fatman too.  Darn CBS.  Starts a series then drops it.  Has done that with Beverly Hillbillies, Rawhide, Petticoat Junction and too many to name.

I was thinking (hoping) the same thing. I only have Cannon Season 1, but when compared to Hawaii Five O, Mannix and Barnaby Jones it is really lacking in video quality.

I would also be interested in more seasons of Cannon. I have S1 & S2 on dvd and love the show.

Hey Gary I saw your post on the Gunsmoke thread about clouds in your crystal ball for some CBS Paramount releases.  Any clouds or news on Cannon Season 3 Volume 1 since your post in June?  Thanks!

Robert,


Unfortunately, when I look into the crystal ball for Cannon news, I no longer see the series at all.  It's as if it has vanished completely.  Take that for what it's worth.

I think that all the CBS series such as "Cannon", Jake and the Fatman,Streets of San Francisco", Matt Houston or Vega$" won´t be continued.

It seems that the selling numbers were too low.

Would be a huge shame with so many cool titles in their archives, if only they's start licensing out I'm sure smaller companies would almost be lining up to release them...

Thanks for the information Gary!  I hope CBS Paramount will change their mind and release Cannon Season 3 Volume 1 on DVD.  Please keep us posted on any news about Cannon and if you can tell CBS Paramount we would really like to see Cannon Season 1 Volume 1 to be released on DVD.  Take Care!

I am ok with the S1 and S2 if they do not plan on releasing more of the show. I like Cannon, but, i found the quality very bad on the dvd. I would much rather see more of the Streets of Sanf Francisco. However, i would still purchase Cannon if it were to come out again.

CBS/P didn't help themselves with how they handled this on DVD.   If episodes were not going to be restored, that's fine, but they should have put these in full season volumes with an appropriate price point reflecting the fact these were a step down from their other releases.


Instead we got split volumes at a price higher than I was willing to pay for a release with sub-par video quality.


That's not to say this show wouldn't have tanked anyway.  Barnaby Jones appears to be another 1 and done release and it had a full season release with very good picture quality.  Unfortunately Jones hasn't stayed relevant in the popular culture the way Five-O or Mason have.  Diagnosis Murder didn't sell either and was stalled out after 3 quick releases.

CBS/P really did a poor job with Cannon all the way around. Very disappointing. Now that it is stalled, who can be surprised?

I think the final eulogies here might be premature. CBS has obviously slowed down their classic releases, and Cannon is probably one of the casualties of that decision. However, even Gary's sources didn't seem to be saying it was gone forever; just that the planned 4th quarter release was canceled. CBS goes back and forth among its not-exactly-bestseller titles, but most of them show up again at some point.


I'm granting you that Diagnosis: Murder is stalled (although Have Gun was revived and Diagnosis had another set come out in England...), but for the moment, I am personally labeling Cannon as "delayed". (Along with Mannix, Perry Mason, Matt Houston, and Barnaby Jones.) I do hope that the promised good news about The Fugitive is still forthcoming this year.

Lee, I appreciate your optimism.  The reality is that we can always, and I do mean A-L-W-A-Y-S, say a certain title is only being delayed as opposed to cancelled.  Let's face it, a company always has the peragotive to come back and start releasing a stalled out series at any time, even years later.  So theoretically we can't say any series is actually cancelled because it might show back up on dvd in 2014 or something.  But for my money that's only semantics.  If one person prefers to use the word "delayed" instead of cancelled" so be it.  But the reality is that when shows are completely removed from schedules with no future dates set for their release, I consider that release cancelled and not simply delayed or postponed.  But as I said, to each his own.
