    How about a different list than we usually come up with?

    How many abandoned TV shows on DVD are in your collection?

    The lone ground rule:
    Only shows that had its last release PRIOR to 01/01/05 and don't have a release on the horizon (NYPD Blue is an example, an '06 release is coming) are eligible.

    Baretta - 4 seasons aired
    10/29/02 - Season 1 Released

    Boomtown - 2 seasons aired
    07/20/04 - Season 1 Released

    Charlie's Angels - 5 seasons aired
    05/27/03 - Season 1 Released
    04/06/04 - Season 2 Released

    Happy Days - 11 seasons aired
    08/17/04 - Season 1 Released

    Laverne & Shirley - 8 seasons aired
    08/17/04 - Season 1 Released

    S.W.A.T. - 2 seasons aired
    06/03/03 - Season 1 Released

    actually, NYPD Blue is being resurrected in 06. From what I heard, Sony has season 3 of Charlie's Angels set for April 2006

    I would buy the second season of either show but it seems like neither will ever be released.
    Sorry. I forgot that only pre 2005 titles were to be listed. Joan came out in 2005 but it seems like it will not see the second season released.

    All released prior to 2005:

    227 - The Complete 1st Season
    American Dreams - Season 1
    Apprentice, The - The Complete 1st Season
    Barney Miller - The 1st Season
    Bernie Mac Show, The - Season 1
    Charlie's Angels - The Complete 1st Season (I don't own season 2)
    Everwood - The Complete 1st Season
    S.W.A.T. - The Complete 1st Season

    Joan of Arcadia S1 came out in '05, but I'd be eager for the 2nd season also

    Twin Peaks Season 2 is set for sometime in 2006 I believe. Paramount is supposed to be working on the video transfers to get the quality on par with season 1 at this point.

    Dynasty - Season 1 (released April 2005)

    Fox is apparently coming up with problems for season 2+, hopefully will be resolved.

    The 4400 (season 1 released 12/21/04) awaiting season 2
    S.W.A.T. (Season 1 released 6/3/03) awaiting season 2
    Earth Final Conflict (season 5 released 10/28/03) awaiting season 1 and 2 (yes, S3, S4 and S5 released before S1 and S2)

    And this one only misses your criteria by the skin of it's fangs...
    Forever Knight (season 2 released 1/4/05) awaiting final season 3

    if shows only have one season to go, why not just suck it in and release them? Will season 2 of S.W.A.T seriously be that painful to release?

    I've lucked out - only one show has stalled out on the launch pad, and we'll more than likely get a further release in the future: G.I. Joe.

    And frankly, even if Joe never sees the light of day again, I've got enough from Season 1 (and the movies) to keep me happy.

    Actually - thats not QUITE true. I was collecting the R2 He-Man discs until that series died in the UK. But with the show coming out in the US, I'm good.

    Here's mine:

    Baretta
    Charlie's Angels ( I heard April too, but I'll believe it when I see it)
    The Incredible Hulk
    Night Court
    S.W.A.T.
    T.J. Hooker
    Starsky & Hutch (once again, until I see an official announcement, it's on the list)
    Who's The Boss

    In my case, most of my list is Sony.
    Lets hope they pick up where they left off with most of these!!

    That's my only abandoned series. But I'm still hopeful that they're just slow getting around to it.
