Glad you sent that email, Chris. And I'm glad you got a reply, even if it wasn't exactly what any of us would have hoped for. I guess it's just kind of obvious by now that unless a miracle takes place we can expect more of the same going forward. Too bad.
On a more cheerful note, I've been thinking about which b/w series we might see next. These are the ones I can remember that we've either heard rumors about, or we know are in some way, shape or form being worked on:
Ozzie & Harriet - I'm not sure we are ever going to see this series actually get released (at least in its entirety), but I'll keep hoping.
The Rebel - heard rumors of this one from Timeless for a long, long time now. Again, keeping my fingers crossed.
Gunsmoke - I'd hope this one isn't stalled. We'll see what the future holds.
Death Valley Days - who knows? We can only hope.
Our Miss Brooks - CBS Syndication Library says the 1st season is being remastered. Maybe a dvd release is coming.
The Dakotas - seems like someone said WBA would be doing this, but with no date announced yet. Not sure if that's correct though.
Sgt Bilko - complete set already up for pre-order in R2. I've heard the R1 is coming, but it's not been announced officially yet so we'll have to wait it out a bit longer.
WB Series - probably more of Sugarfoot, Kildare, etc coming down the pike. At this point I'd like to see some series (like the one above) that haven't been on air recently. I've seen most of the more popular WB westerns on Encore in recent years, so I'd like to see something more rare. We'll see.
Anything else that I'm missing? I'm not talking about officially announced stuff like Rawhide S8, but things we think might be coming but don't have a date on yet.
