Turned out I short-counted by one (Rawhide) so the number is already 40 with Gunsmoke!

I'd be extremely happy if they could just get to 41 (Run For Your Life).....Wishful thinking

Someone also hinted at a continuation of Peyton Place soon. So there is a real possibility of more.

I really don't see more Peyton Place coming out after all this time.  If Warner Archive owned it, maybe, but they don't.

Sugarfoot Should be completed this year by WA as well. I'd say Season 2 of Bronco is a strong possibility as well. Warner seems to have picked up their pace on TV releases the past few months compared to the last 2 years. I would expect no releases from them for the rest of the year after Thanksgiving just like last year.

I'd like to see WBA release complete sets of the two old sitcoms , Room For One More , and It's A Great Life . And I'm hopeful they'll clear up the music issues and release the detective shows.

1965-66 has indeed been a major year for TV on DVD. I counted 43 series though, including the now very likely Gunsmoke. Which shows am I overcounting?CBS:GunsmokeThe Beverly HillbilliesPetticoat JunctionGreen AcresThe Lucy ShowMy Favorite MartianHogan's HeroesGilligan's IslandThe Dick Van Dyke ShowThe Andy Griffith ShowGomer PyleHazelThe MunstersPerry MasonThe Wild Wild WestRawhideLost in SpaceDaktariABC:BatmanGidgetF TroopMcHale's NavyBewitchedThe Addams FamilyThe Patty Duke ShowThe FlintstonesThe FugitiveCombatThe FBIHoney WestThe AvengersThe Big ValleyVoyage to the Bottom of the SeaNBC:Get SmartI Dream of JeannieMy Mother, the CarI SpyThe VirginianBonanzaLaredoDaniel BooneThe Man From UNCLEFlipper

Daktari was a mid season replacement and didn't debut till 1/66 but everything else looks right.

Same for Batman and The Avengers, but I was just counting for the whole television season. Jack is certainly right about the DVD riches for that season!

I short-counted Daktari and Hazel since I don't have either and I hadn't realized Avengers had debuted its US airings that season! Similarly we have to include "Danger Man" which aired in the US that season on CBS under the "Secret Agent" title. When we leave out all the variety and game shows that were part of the primetime schedule we are looking at almost 60% or better of all filmed shows that were on the air that year.

Yes, I forgot Secret Agent (which I do have, so no excuse!), making 44. I wonder why exactly that season has provided such a cornucopia of home entertainment...

64-65, 65-66. 66-67. and 67-68 have the best representations of any other eras of classic DVD releases. Great years.

It's true those were great  years for television. I've purchased many of the shows you've mentioned, and will continue to do so as they are released. Still there are a lot of earlier years that are also good , but because the companies releasing DVDs have shied away from Black and white recently we wont see anywhere near that  representation. That includes many very popular shows like December Bride, Adventures In Paradise, The People Choice , Topper, Trackdown, Oh Susanna, Tightrope, What's My Line  etc.
