Dear Guys:


Since it's been said that Shout has been doing some work with Universal series, and we've already heard that Airwolf season 4 is coming out. How about guessing what other shows might be on OUR lists?


Hmm.


Fantastic Journey

(this short lived series from 1976 does show up quite a bit on a few tv DVD lists, don't ask me why--it's mentioned on the Amazon.Com wish list)

Invisible Man (David McCallum)

Gemini Man

Otherworld


What else can we guess about?


James

"Fantastic Journey" is a Sony property I think.


It would be nice if the remaining seasons for "Night Gallery", "Black Sheep Squadron" and "Hardy Boys" would get to DVD to finish those titles at long last.

The first three seasons were released on DVD by Universal, so I'm hoping Quincy, M.E. is continued on DVD by Shout! Factory.

I mention this is every Universal TV thread...but I'd be thrilled to see seaQuest Season 3 hit DVD in some form from anybody.  Universal clearly has no interest in it and maybe Shout can go back and not only get S3 out, but give seasons 1 and 2 better releases, too.  But I'll be happy with just the third season.

Not a Universal property.   Webb produced that show after he broke with them and the rights became Worldvision which by default now makes it a CBS/Paramount property.

Since DRAGNET 1969 is coming from Shout very soon, I think it's a pretty safe bet that DRAGNET 1970 will probably follow in 2011, completing that color series. Perhaps Shout will pick up NIGHT GALLERY (one short season left) and ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS (three seasons left, of the original series) and continue/complete them, as well.


Universal's short-lived horror anthology series of the early 1980s, DARKROOM, was recently released on DVD in Australia; I could see Shout licensing that.


Other possibilities (a few rather remote):


THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR (1962-65, three seasons)

SUSPICION (1957, one season,  from Hitchcock's production company)

T.H.E. CAT (1966-67, one season, although I'm still not sure if this is with Universal, or is a Republic/Worldvision therefore CBS/Paramount property now)

CAPTAIN NICE (1966-67, one season, ditto)

AMAZING STORIES, SEASON 2


--also, there are some classic made-for-tv movies, most notably:


FEAR NO EVIL (1969)

RITUAL OF EVIL (1970)

KILLDOZER (1974)


My Current Damage at DVD Aficionado

Wanted in R1: UNEARTHLY STRANGER ('63) / IF I HAD A MILLION ('32) / THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK ('41) / IT CONQUERED THE WORLD ('56) / TERROR ABOARD ('33) / DANGER ROUTE ('68) / THE BLISS OF MRS. BLOSSOM ('68) / GUNN ('67) / ZOO IN BUDAPEST ('33) / THE SEA WOLF ('41) / DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS ('63, restored) / ALAKAZAM THE GREAT ('60) / DARKER THAN AMBER ('70) / THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME ('47) / CROSSWINDS ('51) / JIVARO ('54)

Wanted TV-on-DVD: T.H.E. CAT (1966-67) / SUSPICION (1957-58) / WAY OUT (1961) / ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR (1962-65) / PANIC! (1957-58) / CORONET BLUE (1965) / DRAGNET ('50s) / NEW ADVENTURES OF HUCK FINN (1968) / BUS STOP (1961-62) / THE WESTERNER (1960) / THE IMMORTAL (1970) / BLUE LIGHT (1966) / TERRIERS (2010) / THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS (1966)

Don't forget Adam-12 S6 and 7, and the Emergency Movies.


Also, through Shout, we may see S5 of Ironside.

I would love to see Universal release Amazing Stories: The Complete Second Season to finally complete the series!

Because of all the medical lingo where subtitles might come in handy I hope Universal themselves will continue Quincy M.E., McCloud's another one they ought to continue and if Madman in Australia can get it right with the original episode formats so can Universal.

I'd like to see The Outsider, Pistols 'n' Petticoats, 90 Bristol Court, The Jean Arthur Show, Lucas Tanner, The Road West, Calvin and the Colonel and Whatever Happened to the Class of '65. Of course, I don't think there's a snowballs chance for any of them, save for maybe Road West if Timeless does it.

Just remembered Spy Games (1997) was a Universal series, I had forgotten about that, and I think She Spies (season 2) was Universal.
