Thanks for the info guys, I have updated the list with the new additions.
I know it's a bit of a fudge based on your standard of 2 seasons or less, but Fox stalled out Big Valley with only 2 1/2 seasons left. I thought that was truly one of the most lame things of all time. To release Season 2, Volume 1 and not even finish up the season? That's truly pathetic in my book.
That is truly pathetic!
I was actually wondering when some studio was going to do this, I didn't know someone already had?! I was not aware other studios (aside from Paramount) actually put out these crappy volume releases where they split a season into two. I think this ranks at the top- abandoning a show half way through a release- I wonder why they decided not to release the 2nd half of the season?! Another series that is in the same category is Bonanza- Paramount released S2, V1 last December and have yet to release volume 2?! In my view the only justification for splitting a season in two is for the older series that tend to have more episodes per season, I think Paramount just does it to get more money from the consumer?!
"Greatest American Hero" shouldn't count because it has been made complete on DVD more than once.
I know this has already been released in its entirety by Anchor Bay as well as a complete series set from Mill Creek but I thought I would throw it in (as well as 21 Jump Street) since they appear to be continuing with the season set releases. To be honest, I am not sure why Mill Creek even bothered with the season sets since their complete series sets are quite cheap so I would think those interested would just take the plunge and buy the complete series?!
Regarding the releases from the indie studios, do you know if these companies still have the rights to these series?! Naked City
appears to be out of print from what I found online, which is why I did not include it.
If anyone else comes up with others, just post the info and I will update the table. I cannot believe how many series there are that are close to being completed and are now stalled?! I hope this list will eventually start getting smaller, meaning these final releases start coming out.
