    I know we are close to the studios finishing on releases coming at the end of the year.
    I have a list here of shows that have never had an official tv on dvd release.some of the shows may have had a vhs or public domain release but no dvd release.
    OK the list of shows are
    Dennis the Menace
    After Mash
    Barnaby jones
    Eight is enough
    Ben Casey
    Car 54 Where are you
    Dear John

    I have no inside info just a tv on dvd fan.
    It will be fun to look back a year from now to see what if any of these shows had a 2009 release

    I think After Mash will be released at some point. Fox could release the entire series in one shot, and most Mash fans will probably buy it.
    I'm rather new to Mash. I love it, and I'm really curious about After Mash.

    Of your list, I'd love to get "Car 54, Where Are You?" The good news is that the series is with Paramount so there's always a chance. But if I were a betting man, I'd guess that there are probably other higher profile shows that Paramount would release before getting to "Car 54." Paramount's been doing licensing of some of its lesser known film titles to Legend Films so it would be interesting to see if there would be any licensing possibilities for some television shows as well. I know that a company like Shout! Factory or S'more Entertainment would do a good job with this series.

    With those wise words in mind, my guess would be that Paramount will release "The Lucy Show" next year. That's got to be at the top of their "to release" list, or so one would think.

    I'm hoping most for (but am not counting on):

    Boris Karloff's THRILLER (with 2/3 of NIGHT GALLERY out of the way, perhaps this is possible)

    DRAGNET (1968+, un-stalled, mabe through a surrogate like SHOUT! FACTORY or BCI... a Time/Life complete series set, maybe?)

    MAVERICK (former member Hank Dearborn mentioned rumors of WB shopping some of their older shows around to smaller DVD outfits, and with the series currently running on Encore Westerns... hmmm...)

    SUSPICION (1957)
    DECOY (non-PD)
    PANIC! / NO WARNING! --all four of these would seem to be ideal Timeless or Infinity releases (ala TATE, M SQUAD and MAN WITH A CAMERA)

    CORONET BLUE (a longshot, but perhaps an INVADERS-style release from CBS/Paramount?)

    T.H.E. CAT (an extreme longshot, but through some miracle, a "complete series" set, whoever owns it... Universal? Fox? Paramount? Lionsgate?)

    What I expect we'll probably get:

    MANNIX: Seasons 2 & 3
    THE INVADERS: Season 2 (perhaps split)
    RAWHIDE: Season 4 (split)
    THE UNTOUCHABLES: Season 3 (split)
    ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS: Season 4 (if not announced for late 2008)
    VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA: Season 4 (split)

    If there is a "DVD GOD" out there,please make it official for all of those classic tv shows from 55'-63" would be transferred onto dvd.
    My first priority will be "CHEYENNE".
    Any Clint "CHEYENNE" Walker Fan will tell you that the 2nd and 3rd Season of "CHEYENNE" was the heart and soul of this great series.
    The remaining seasons would be a bonus.[​IMG]

    My top five:

    The Big Valley (finish, preferably in full-season sets)
    Mannix (continue)
    The Name of the Game
    Knots Landing (my guess is that Warner Bros. is waiting to finish the Dallas sets before releasing this show, but I'm hopeful)
    Cheyenne (continue)

    I hold hope for "Dragnet" (1960s version) now that Shout! is issuing season 2 of "Adam-12." They would be the most logical company to handle the remaining "Dragnet" seasons, but I think that sales of "Adam-12" season 2 may be an indicator of whether or not we'll see more "Dragnet."

    As much as I'd love to see more "Decoy," specifically, a high quality official release of the entire series, I'd guess that it's a long shot for all of the usual reasons . . . too old, syndicated show, black & white, one season wonder, etc., etc. Still, Liberation Entertainment has the rights to the show and I agree, I'd love to see this come from an independent (the only possible way that it will ever get released). Incidentally, Timeless did release 10 eps. from the series of the public domain variety a few years ago under its budget "Timeless TV" line.

    Liberation Entertainment US | Drama | Decoy

    The other two are intriguing to say the least, particularly "Coronet Blue." Recently, Paramount has begun to license some of its back film catalog to Legend Films, films like "Mandingo," "King of the Gypsies," "Hurricane" and others. These are films that Paramount decided not to release under the Paramount banner, so they licensed them to Legend. My hope is that Paramount might consider doing the same for some of its older televsion titles for which they have no interest in releasing themselves. If Paramount were to begin licensing some older and/or more obscure television shows as it is doing with its film catalog, then we might see "Coronet Blue" or a comedy like "Car 54, Where are You?"

    In case the studios are reading this, I'll vote:

    Paramount, come on already with "The Lucy Show." Lucy was the most popular TV star in history, but her fans aren't getting any younger!

    Sony, license out "Dennis the Menace" and the rest of "Hazel," as you're doing with "The Donna Reed Show."

    Fox, we Mary Tyler fans want some Moore.

    Guys. One indicator we might have is what corresponding movies are coming out next year. In 2009, there will be Land of the Lost movie starring Will Ferrell, so because of that we might get another repackaged Land of the Lost tv series and a few other Kroft tv shows like The Lost Saucer, Far Out Space Nuts, Electrowoman and Dynagirl.

    Mind you. I'm just guessing.

    Since there'll be Transformers and GI Joe movies coming out, I think there'll also be some tv collections of their corresponding animated series.

    Now, there is a TVDVD slowdown due to various reasons. I do think many collections will continue, but not as many unreleased ones. Mission Impossible, Hawaii Five-0, the Waltons, Seventh Heaven will continue on. I'm guessing because they're still putting out new sets, so I guess they're selling well. With other shows such as Cheers and Wings coming to the conclusion of their DVD run, Paramount might re-consider finishing Taxi, Happy Days, and a few other programs.

    That's just a guess on my part. I am not with the tv industry.

    I do think Eight is Enough and Maverick might be in the consideration by WB as new properties to be considered.

    I think Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea will finish up it's fourth season.

    As for short-lived programs like Quark or last year's Voyagers that nobody could predict coming out, I couldn't have a guess on what other beloved classics might be on somebody's sights, but it does give one hopes.

    If you want your favorites to come out, buy your sets, and write letters.
    That's what I'm trying to do.

    I don't understand the hesitancy on Universal's part for doing ELLERY QUEEN at all. It's a period series so it's not going to look dated at all, and there is only one season of it, so no hassles about additional seasons. I can't remember now if there's a great use of period music with the show which might cause some license headaches, but I don't recall there being that much period music.

    At any rate, that would be a great gift if they'd put that out (and do THE SNOOP SISTERS while they're at it.)
