What is your Blu-Ray wish list for vintage television?
Two titles come to mind immediately:
Kolchak, The Night Stalker (Universal/1974-1975)
The Wild Wild West (CBS/1965-1969)
On the edge of Vintage but... Nero Wolfe - Blu Ray - wide screen extended European versions.
And always, of course, the WB Detective series collections 77SS - Hawaiian Eye - SS6 (no hope but it is a "wish list")
Alfred Hitchcock Presents/ Alfred Hitchcock Hour
Star Trek; DS9
Adventures of Superman
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
The Winds of War
War and Remembrance
Deep Space Nine remains the holy grail.
I'd also love to see Get Smart and The Fugitive -- both would look stunning in HD.
Kolchak: The Night Stalker
Alfred Hitchcock Presents / The Alfred Hitchcock Hour
Twelve O'Clock High (Season 1 only)
The Man Who Never Was
Journey to the Unknown
The Sentimental Agent
Add that to my list!
¶ I like these titles very much.
My list probably isn’t that interesting. I’ve noticed there are a few shows I watch over and over, and most others I see just once or twice. The once or twice ones I’m usually just happy to see in any format, so I’m good with a DVD or streaming version. But the Twilight Zone and Star Trek Blu-rays are probably my prized TV possessions and I’d love to get the other favorites that I revisit often onto Blu. Off the top of my head, that would be the DVD-only Star Trek shows, the rest of I Love Lucy and M*A*S*H (but only interested if it includes the option to turn the laugh track off, and preferably the 4x3 versions...but I’d consider the 16x9s, it’s the laugh track that’s the make or break factor for me).
And even those seem really unlikely unfortunately
The Fugitive - because it’s my favorite show of all time.
Rawhide . Because of some great location work.
Have Gun, Will Travel - Ditto
Ozzie & Harriet - Because it’s never been released in official season sets and needs to be. So why not Blu-ray?
Gary “I could probably list off a half dozen or more ZIV shows for location work as well, but I’m trying to keep this short and sweet” O.
Have Gun, Will Travel
The Untouchables (1959 TV series)
The Wild, Wild West
Mission: Impossible (1966 TV series)
Hawaii Five-O (1968 TV series)
The Brady Bunch
The Odd Couple (1970 TV series)
The Immortal (1970 TV series)
The Magician (1973 TV series)
This is already on Blu-ray in an astoundingly high quality set.
If the blurays are from the same transfers used in recent syndication reruns, then I would agree.
I watched the reruns every now and then over the past 20 years or so. Back in y2k, the image quality looked like some old transfers from the 80s or 90s. (ie. Probably not hd).
By the time it was after 2013 or so, the image quality of the reruns looked very good possibly from newer hd transfers made sometime in the 2000s decade.
The Adventures Of Superman, Daktari, The Bob Newhart Show, My Three Sons, The Danny Thomas Show, Ozzie & Harriet.
Most of these would be too little too late, unless they're outsourced to Mill Creek.
It’s a wish list, not a “I think this will happen” list.
Right, and I also compiled mine in the hopes that these B-R updates, if ever they should be released, will use the original 35mm broadcast prints rather than the syndication "generic format" ones.
Yes, indeed, Rawhide needs an upgrade, especially the poor season 4 DVD.
