    Foul Play and Ryan's Four I would definitely love to see, even if they are MODs!

    In fact, I think the CBS MOD team could do better on these two than VEI would, as they would be sourced directly from the original 35mm masters.

    The only shows I really want completed from CBS are “Petticoat Junction” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”.

    If there's one program that still deserves to be released, it's gotta be the original Love, American Style. Both volumes of season 1 (1969-70) had been released on DVD a decade ago (all these 24 episodes restored to their original 1-hour length), but it's seasons 2-5 that are crying for help to be pieced back together the way they were when on ABC Friday nights (especially those occasional 90-minute affairs, including the 1974 series finale and a rough-draft version of the pilot that had been intended to be the first ABC Movie of the Week).

    The season 2 (1970-71) run was odd in that 2/3rds of the run was 1/2-hour long (just as it is in present reruns). It was not until January 22, 1971 (episode 17) that it was restored back to 1 hour. I think it was a bad move for the first two seasons to be re-ran on ABC's daytime schedule too early (September 6, 1971).

    Why were most of the second-season episodes only a half-hour, before the remainder of that sophomore year went back to an hour?

    Probably a test run, to see how well it might do under that length.

    And probably the same kind of test that would be done on The Powers of Matthew Star, wherein Paramount experimented with videotaped post-production for 2 or 3 outings of that 1982-83 NBC sci-fi series.

    Why would TCF be behind that short-lived 70s Markham Mason, while CBS itself was behind the longer-running 1957-66 Burr series?

    Probably because CBS's rights to the franchise expired and Fox bought the rights with the idea that re-booting it with a new cast might breathe new life into it.

    Ben,

    You're in luck as DECADES Channel (if you get that channel) will be running a LAS Marathon from Noon CT (12/8/2018) - 6 AM CT (12/10/2018), so set your recorder to tape all those episodes if you are so inclined to do as such.

    That's how I got mine, from the pre-launch Decades marathon of the whole series. Missed 2 segments but unfortunately I don't have access to the network anymore. Thanks, CBS.

    You're dreaming. CBS doesn't spend the money to do 35mm transfers for MOD. That take whatever is available and already existing on tape. If there's no Betacam or one-inch tape of a series, it ain't coming out on MOD.
