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.

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.

Most of these would be too little too late, unless they're outsourced to Mill Creek.
