The only shows I know of that I am interested in are Flo, Jimmy Stewart Show, the two short-lived Maverick series (especially Bret Maverick), The Dakotas, and the Alaskans.  Beyond those, I don't currently know of any others, although I am trying to keep an open mind on some shows, as I continue to find other shows in their library that might interest me.

Mine would definitely be - Search/Probe.

 

 

 

I'll second that.  I'm happy and probably should consider myself lucky just to have the pilot episode since I never thought it would see the light of day.  Same way with Then Came Bronson.  Glad to have that as well but would like the series.

Bronson was one season and it's surprising how few mention it so I guess I will.  Maybe somebody did and I just missed it.  I'll go back and re-read.

Believe these to be WB/owned. With clearances, could all be short and sweet releases.

 

Kaz

 

King's Crossing

 

The Mississippi

 

Flamingo Road


Only show out of those you've listed I've heard of, is Flamingo Road. Did want to suggest that title (even though it aired for two seasons, preceded by a possible feature length pilot episode), but wasn't sure if it was a Lorimar show that would have music clearance problems (like with Knots Landing), or whether it would be a more straightforward path to a Warner Home Video/Warner Archive DVD release (like Dallas and Falcon Crest).

Another short-lived show (but this one is more of a short-short-lived show, as there appear to be only two episodes which were shown, based on it's main IMDb page) I'd like to see released by the Warner Archive, is Adams of Eagle Lake (starring Andy Griffith).

I would like to see Quinn Martin's 1930's private eye series Banyon starring Robert Forster. There are 15 episodes and a pilot movie. According to Wikipedia, Time/Warner currently has the rights.

Search would be up there at the top of my list for short lived shows. Glad you mentioned Then Came Bronson. I have all the episodes from both those shows but would definitely buy it for superior quality prints.

 

Not absolutely sure if WB's own these but would love to see The Men wheel series (Assignment: Vienna; The Delphi Bureau and Jigsaw) get a release. Also Jigsaw John.

Banyon would be interesting, but my understanding is that "The FBI" is the only QM show that Warner controls.     He did shows "produced in association with Warner Brothers" that are under CBS/Paramount control like "Streets Of San Francisco" and I think that would apply to "Banyon" as well as the other 70s QM titles ("Twelve O'Clock High" would be the one QM show controlled by Fox; which means we'll never see it)

I will echo a vote for YOUNG MAVERICK.   Add to that my need to whole 'complete' sets of series, thus I want to add BRET MAVERICK to that list.

Defintely Hank!  One of the first shows allowed to have an ending episode, and the show was in color!


Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...
