I understand that SPACE: 1999 year 2 blu ray is still being worked on. Japan has seen Gerry/Sylvia Anderson's UFO on blu, so hopefully a region B will follow. DVD releases I would like to see Further volumes of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS leading to THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR PHIL SILVERS SHOW, GREEN ACRES and THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES continued Fox to release JOURNEY TO THE UNKNOWN Will we ever get to see THE JACK BENNY SHOW THE BURNS AND ALLEN SHOW LIFE WITH LUCY from MPI is hopefull Why didn't MPI release the other Christmas HONEYMOONERS special (the one wih Gale Gordon as Ralph's boss). Are there any other 60s HONEYMOONERS And how about a proper (picture-wise) release of the color LOST IN SPACE seasons

Other additions: Hec Ramsey (if the Snoop Sisters came out, Hec Ramsey has to be on somebody's list) The Farmer's Daughter (I don't believe it's owned by Fox) James

The Farmer's Daughter is Sony so there may be a chance for it. I would love to see more Beverly Hillbillies in 2013 myself.

A friend of mine with The British Phil Silvers Association Society said they had been in contact with CBS HE about possibly getting out the rest of Phil Silvers to DVD. I don't know what became of that but perhaps we'll hear something. MPI is doing an official pressing of "The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies" TV movie from 1981, so I'm hoping that means they're looking at what interest there is in releasing more of the show. I know CBS did remaster seasons 2 & 3 for hi-def (their syndication page touts 2 & 3 as being hi-def and the DVD transfers looked better than I've ever saw) so hopefully if MPI gets these, they will be given careful attention to detail. Of course, at this point I would take anything. I have VHS copies of the Columbia House set from the 80's/90's and anything has to be better than VHS!

Word I'm hearing is that Shout is looking into licensing the rest of Hillbillies and Petticoat.

There are no existing tape transfers on Farmer's Daughter, only film elements. So, no, I doubt there's much of a chance.

And will you be paying the cost to transfer film to digital? Or, more appropriately, will you be willing to pay the inflated price that the companies slap on the box set because they had to pay to make new digital masters of the shows? And even if you are willing to pay a greater price for a certain show, do you think the general public will be willing to go over what seems to be the magic $30 threshold for some shw they half remember from years ago? In case you didn't know, these companies are running a business. They're out to make money. Making people happy is secondary. And going back to original film elements costs money, and most of the time it probably isn't worth it for the return they'll be getting off most of these sets.

That's too bad. I thought it was mastered on tape to run in syndication some 20-25 years ago (not that it's ideal for a DVD presentation). Didn't it run on CBN/Family Channel at one point?

Neil, that is certainly positive news! I have sent them that suggestion a couple of times and received a reply both times that it certainly seemed like a show that would have their interest.

And they should throw in Green Acres for good measures as well. Hoping they license all three.

From what my sources tell me, Sony provided them with 16mm prints.

My biggest TV series wish would be for the excellent, but short lived, Tony Young western series GUNSLINGER. I recall this as being rather more violent than its contemporaries and Young making an excellent, brooding anti-hero -in stark contrast with the other Warner cowboys of the period. The show also had an outstanding Frankie Lane theme tune which I can still hum and whistle more than thirty years later. "Gunslinger, gunslinger where do you ride? What do you fight for today? When the law needs a hand you're on their side. Gunslinger ride away" The grey market bootlegs of this one have been singularly dire and I've only ever seen two or three of the episodes available in any form. Does any knowledgeable reader have any information regarding survival of the original prints? Other than that I would definitely concur with others who would like to see the rest of the CHEYENNE and HARRY O series plus THE DAKOTAS, Peckinpah's THE WESTERNER, LAWMAN, the unreleased Stacy Keach MIKE HAMMER shows (I thought the recently exhumed Darren McGavin Hammers were dreadful!) plus THE ADVENTURES OF PHILIP MARLOWE with Phil Carey. I'd also love to see a decent copy of the rare Dick Powell TV version of Chandler's THE LONG GOODBYE.

*I thought the recently exhumed Darren McGavin Hammers were dreadful!* I couldn't disagree more. Keach had his charm but he's no McGavin. That was the best release of 2011 IMHO... I'm hoping like all to see Batman, Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres, more Police Story and the Pruitts of South Hampton, Movin' On and T.H.E. Cat, Cpt. Nice and Adventures in Paradise and definitely Climax!

Throw in Flying Nun Season 3 as well as that has never been released either.

When was the second season of BENSON released? I was hoping for a complete series set. Also, I never caught this season's NBC show about a nationwide blackout (I forget the title) - was it any good? The premise looked intriguing but I just don't watch network TV anymore. The amount of commercials is just out of control these days.

Yes, you have to have all 3 because of the relation between the three shows. I know that the Clampetts never appeared on Green Acres itself as they did Petticoat Junction but Eb was on the TBH episodes where the Clampetts visited Hooterville and Mr. and Mrs. Douglas made a cameo at the end of "The Thanksgiving Spirit" on TBH.

MPI would be planning some sort of extension of their "Beverly Hillbillies"/"Petticoat Junction" range, no doubt. In addition to the reunion films, they have a special anniversary package for "Petticoat Junction" planned with, I'm sure, some great bonuses. I'd love to see MPI giving some extra attention to the Hillbillies, the folks at the Shady Rest, and Oliver and Lisa. It's one big happy extended family.
