Three releases I never thought I'd see due to the legal nightmares that entangled them are finally coming out the same year (whether they'll actually satisfy fans, we have yet to find out).

 

What's left that has that level of fan interest plus legal circumstances keeping it away from DVD?


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, although some will argue there's not an appropriate level of fan interest.  In the Heat of the Night (all episodes with all music) is another.

Cold Case is another music rights nightmare.

Burns and Allen have the misfortune of being a Sony show.

Dragnet 5X is in the Universal vaults, with no easily converted to digital masters ready, IIRC.

 

Both B&A and Dragnet also have the whole public domain thing working against them, with enough episodes being out in cheap PD releases that the companies might not see any value in official releases, if you want to consider that "legal" problems.

 

Oh, and Saturday Night Live, seasons 6 and above. Horrible music problems.

I'll go with the 2 preceeding posters:

 

1) Cold Case - too great of a recent series to not be released. The period music made it alot more riveting than CSI, Criminal Minds, and Without a Trace, although they are all great shows.

 

2) Sunset Strip (and Hawaiian Eye) - There is too great an outcry from fans and eventually Warner is going to have to give in and shell out the bucks for the music.

If you notice on the "Instant Archive" only select episodes are available - I have a feeling that the clearance issue keeping some episodes unavailable. I guess WB is reluctant to issue "Best of" DVD MOD of the shows that ARE clearable.

What's left that has that level of fan interest plus legal circumstances keeping it away from DVD?

 

With the 3 shows you mentioned about to come out plus China Beach's recent release, I think there are still plenty of shows that people would like to see that may prove troublesome to release, but none with same high level of fan interest/pop culture icon status.

 

That said, the 5 troublesome shows I personally would most like to see get worked out and released are:

 

Burns & Allen (plus the post-Gracie season) - Issues: some episodes are PD; possibly some music issues from that season without Gracie

Dragnet (50s version) - Issue: some episodes are PD

Maude (Seasons 2 - 6) - Issue: music

Chico & the Man - Issue: music

WKRP (90s revival) - Issue: music  (While Shout Factory has apparently been willing to try to get as much of the original music as possible for the upcoming release of the original series, I doubt they would be willing to make as much effort for the 2-season revival. It wasn't a great series, especially when compared with the original, but it had some good moments. Plus, the completist in me would like to have the full WKRP saga - if done right.)
