Kung-Fu

The first Western that was an "Eastern" starring David Carradine still has a rabid following.

The Paper Chase

The movie was kind of lame but CBS gave it a decent treatment as a series and Showtime really made this vehicle shine in the cable format. John Houseman and a great ensemble cast made this a great series.

Dallas

Need I say more? Who never heard of J.R. Ewing and the women of Southfork?

Louis, are you aware of the fact that a Dallas movie might be made in the near future?

Here is an article about Dallas being made into a movie witn an entirely new cast. People might be discussing this in the Movies area. There are also numerous "TV shows needed/wanted on DVD" threads in the Studio and Manufacturer Feedback area.

"Dallas" without Larry Hagman??? Why bother?? Posted Image

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

NewsRadio.
It would be moderately insane not to have this out sometime soon, I think. The syndication business is dying down and it's got a huge cult following.
Not only that, it's my personal favorite.
And I'd like to see someone give us the actual Kids in the Hall TV show!
Scrubs, while maybe not immediately, ought to have a release some time.
Frasier would be a nice addition.
Besides that, I'd like to see them take Mad About You all the way through Season 7. Early Edition would be most welcome. Also, I'd really like to see the Australian show Ocean Girl available. (I know, that last one's really strange)

And I have voted for all these at TVShowsonDVD.com a long time ago. Thanks!

I wholeheartedly agree on Buffalo Bill, Early Edition and NewsRadio. Great picks.Posted Image

Eric, I heard about the Dallas movie, but agree with Craig that without Larry Hagman, it will be a tough row to hoe for it to be successful.

Good call on NewsRadio. That, Red Dwarf (which is coming, yay!), and Seinfeld would probably be the only TV Shows that I'd pick up ATM. Sports Night is already pre-ordered. Posted Image

My #1 TV pick right now = THE FUGITIVE (1963-1967). Kimble. Gerard. The chases! The great Peter Rugolo music score! Suzanne Pleshette guest-starring in two of the best episodes! Posted Image

It's sure to be 120 episodes of pure (digital) TV satisfaction. Posted Image Posted Image

Columbo (1970s NBC episodes, and restore the "NBC Mystery Movie" opening that has always been missing in reruns and VHS!)
