Dear Guys;
 

A hypothetical question that won't effect anything. For 2011, if you were the ruler of the universe, and you could either choose between "stalled" tv shows making their DVD releases, and other programs that haven't made it out on digital yet, what decision would you make.

 

Stalled shows could include anything like: Newhart, Bob Newhart, Las Vegas, Love Boat, Hart to Hart, Fantasy Island, Bonanza, St. Elsewhere, etc shows that didn't get their complete runs out on DVD before getting "stalled" by poor sales *supposedly."

 

As for myself, I would chose shows that haven't come out on DVD yet, because there's only three series of mine that haven't gotten roadblocked (Superboy, Xiaolin Showdown, Animaniacs)

 

Yeah! I know it's a stupid question, but it's fun.

 

James

You always come up the the good question.  This one's a tough one for me but I'd have to go with "completing stalled shows" for now.  There are so many that are stalled or possibly abandoned that I'd have to choose this over unreleased shows.

Hereis another vote for completing stalled shows.  I would love to finish "Hill St. Blues, Barney Miller, The Big Valley, St. Elsewhere".  There are a great many unfinished series that have already been mentioned that I would hope to see finished before the studios release other shows that may also wind up on this list.

Any others? Bump!

 

Again, I'm the only one voting for more unreleased programs: Quite a few on my list: Jake 2.0, Salvage 1, Kids From CAPER, Man From Atlantis, the Magician, Unidentified Flying Space Nuts, Baby Blues, Young Maverick, Spy Games, When Things Were Rotten, Wizards and Warriors etc.

 

Can I help it if I have eclectic interests

Thanks! But that's because I don't have too many answers.  And I like to get my responses from the best.

I'm surprised Baby Blues isn't out on DVD, considering how many other short-run animated series like The Oblongs, Mission Hill, and Father of the Pride are.

Then again, supposedly there are 26 episodes of Baby Blues (as opposed to 13 each of the others), so maybe Warner doesn't want to go through the added expense.

 

I'd like to see When Things Were Rotten released as well (I only got to see about half of the episodes in its original run).

I would release The Snorks, Animaniacs Volume 4 (for the fans), The Wonder Years (for my mom), The Muppet Show Season 4 and 5, Muppets Tonight, Complete Season Sets of Droids and Ewoks, more Tiny Toon Adventures, Bonkers, Amazing Animals, and The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.

I, for one, would like to see studios attempt to finish what they started. The last thing we need is more one-and-dones.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.

Replying to the original post:

 

That's an interesting dilemna, either the stalled shows or the shows which you'd really like to see on DVD. I would go for the stalled shows (Cold Squad, Knots Landing. Mannix and Quincy, M.E.).

I'd have to go with complete the stalled shows even if it's titles I do not collect.

 

While there are many unreleased shows I'd love to have on DVD I feel that if a series starts with full season sets then the studio/distributor/etc. should commit to complete the series, even if sales don't live up to expectations, out of loyalty to those fans who want the entire series.

I'd have to go with stalled shows.  While there are still some neat shows out there that have yet to be released, there are more stalled shows I'd like to see completed than new ones that haven't been released at all.   I bet I could name off three or four dozen stalled out shows I'd like to see completed.  Yes, I could name off even more never released shows, but only a few of them would be really, really important series to me.  So I'd still go with stalled out shows being finished.

Only the CBS/Paramount Rawhide releases are stalled. Season four is arriving at the end of September from Madman, as I mentioned in another thread. With the price (shipping included) being about what you'd pay for both volumes of a split season in the U.S., I'm surprised you're not picking this up, Gary. Even if the episodes aren't remastered into HD like seasons two and three, I'm sure that they will look as good or better than season one, where no HD remastering was done.

Another vote for stalled series. And there's a lot of them!

 

Most if not all of my favorite shows are already out on DVD. The only favorite show that I can think of at the moment that hasn't been released on DVD is The Wonder Years. And by the looks of it, that series may never see the light of day on DVD. And as far as I am concerned, that show doesn't exist in the DVD world.
