Shout's usually the one that'll finish a show
  Really?!   California Dreams, My Two Dads, Parker Lewis Can't Lose & Rhoda all have one season left un-released.  It appears that Mr. Ed will unfortunately be joining this club as another stalled series abandoned right before its final release.  Shout! Factory appears to be taking a page out of Paramount's book- release a series then abandon it right at the very end and leave the final season unreleased.  Sorry but I don't understand the logic here, if they made it to the final season then that means the previous ones were selling well otherwise they would have only released one or two seasons?!  What makes matters worse is that just like Rhoda, the final season of Mr. Ed is a short one so the costs should be lower since there are less episodes and thus less discs in the set?!   This company started out great with regards to releasing Classic TV on DVD but things have spiraled downward in the last little while IMO. You have stalled releases, edited episodes on some releases, technical glitches and the wonderful Select program where people have to wait longer between releases (if they even put out any subsequent releases) and they are more expensive then retail releases.

Parker Lewis' main problem is music rights related. It was pretty much said that the last set didn't sell enough to justify the expense of trying to obtain those music rights. Otherwise, it would probably have gotten a Shout! Select release. The first two seasons were both retail.

That reminds me, just WHEN are they going to give us another Select title in the tradition of giving a low-selling title one more chance? I thought that was the whole point of the program to begin with but it's been more than a year since Shout gave us a Select title in that sense of the term, and at bare minimum they should give us one more year of "Marcus Welby MD" since the first two years that underwhelmed sales wise were retail release.

I didn't see this mentioned in this thread: SCTV -- NBC 90-minute shows (commonly referred to as "Seasons 4 and 5") all released except for three "Best Of" shows (which included some skits from earlier seasons still unreleased) Season 1 -- unreleased apart from whatever skits were reused in 90-minute shows included on Volumes 1 and 2 Season 2 -- three episodes included on The Best Of The Early Years (comment for Season 1 also applies) Season 3 -- twelve episodes included on The Best Of The Early Years (comment for Season 1 also applies) SCTV Channel (final 18 episodes shown on Cinemax) -- unreleased All the Underdog cartoons are released (though some are edited), but not every segment of all the supporting cartoons from that show have been released. Same for Tennessee Tuxedo.

No info but I found this writeup at an overseas dealer website DVD Clash. It lists a release date of September 11, 660 minutes. I suspect that what this is, is a package of episodes totally separate from the MCA/Universal owned filmed episodes that have been the basis of the syndication package over the years, and that these are more of the live and videotape episodes that would alternate with those filmed shows (in which most would exist only as kinescopes).

If you have a region-free player you can get the German release. I actually got it through Amazon Italy - it was slightly cheaper.

I think Conan the Adventurer is in serious danger of not being completed. They said the last set didn't sell as much as they hoped and it has been awhile since there has been any news.

I'm still waiting for Mister Ed season 6. I bought all 5 seasons at full price through Shout!'s website, hoping to support the cause. I'd hate to see this show abandoned with a measly 13 episodes left un-released.
