I wonder when Warner is gonna open the vaults on Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Surfside Six, and all the Westerns (Maverick, etc).

They are obviously serious about releasing some older stuff as there was a press release floating around stating that all 9 seasons of the F.B.I. were coming out later this year.

And how about Bourbon Street Beat?  I've been dreaming about these titles for a long, long time.

Sorry to say, but I think the only way your dreams come true will be by Warner BOD, even then an iffy proposition.  Believe me, I'm just as anxious as you to see them, but Warner just doesn't give a crap about their treasure trove of B&W detective and western shows.  At least Encore Westerns has given us Maverick, Cheyenne, and now Lawman as well.  Maybe they will give us Colt .45, The Alaskans, The Dakotas, Bronco, and Sugarfoot as well.



See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

Also, Good Life TV gave us 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Surfside 6, Bourbon Street Beat, Bronco, Sugarfoot and The Gallant Men. Really the only shows from the classic era that have not run anywhere recently are Colt 45, Roaring 20s, The Dakotas and The Alaskans.

It was a cable network with limited coverage in too few homes.

 Now called American Life TV, or ALN, it is a cable channel that used to show a fantastic schedule of retro TV programs, that Neil mentioned, and lots of others as well.  For some reason, they abandoned the retro TV philosophy and now broadcast a bunch of cooking, health, religious, and paid programming shows.  But it used to be what TV Land was in "the good old days" and more. <sigh>


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

Warner Bros. better hurry up and get those shows out. The people that remember them and that would buy them aren't getting any younger.
