With my kids returning to school mext Wednesday (Remember the days when we never, ever started before labor day), I began to think about what we might have coming to us over the next 4 months: What We Know: 1) Of course this will be a very bountiful release period. The 2 big grail shows (Wonder Years and Batman) of course are the big news but let us not forget we are also in for complete sets of WKRP, Kotter, Bilko, Annie Oakley and The Jeffersons. 2) Big Valley and Dynasty will be completed. 3) 80's favorites such as LA Law, Newhart, and Hill Street Blues will continue. 4) We will seee a season one release of Name Of The Game (with hopefully the latter 2 seasons to follow). What We Don't Know (By Studio): 1) CBS - A crapshoot. They just released a volume of Gunsmoke and Bonanza Season 7 is due next month so I am fairly certain we won't see more volumes of either of those before year end. They also still have Season 6 of Happy Days in the can as well as Season 1 of Our Miss Brooks and Season 1 of High Chapparal but who knows if that means releases of these are coming (see Love Boat). I think the key thing with CBS is to see if the Holidays bring more seasons of Hillbillies or Petticoat. I'm not real optimistic at this point as the syndication bible does not indicate any remastering of further seasons but I am hoping they are working on them for a holiday release like last year. As far as any other stuff coming out before year end from these guys, your guess is as good as mine, although I'm not feeling like we will see much. MOD anyone? 2) Shout/Timeless - Their plans are pretty much out there for the fall as it is and they have some great stuff coming out as I mentioned above with their complete sets of some favorites. I think what has been announced is the extent of what we will see for this year....but they are having one hell of a year. Hopefully they will give us a couple of additional nuggets through Timeless. The Rebel has been brought up in another thread today. Wouldn't it be great to get that as a Christmas present? 3) Warner - Warner pretty much ran through vomumes of most of the shows in their current rotation in June and July, so I'm guessing maybe one or two may see one more season release by year end. My personal guesses are the completion of FBI and the next to last season of Kildare. Most of the questions that fans continue to ask about on their webpage about the usual suspects (next seasons of Alice and Falcon, Spenser, Enos, Lawman, and the detective shows are met with the same non committal, no ETA answer, so I'm not expecting to see any of those anymore this year either. I'm guessing they will through a couple more one season jobs at us over the next few months as they they did in July. Maybe McClain's Law? 4) VEI - Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe nothing. 5) Other Indies - The only limb I'll go on here is to say the next Rifleman season set will be released. I believe someone reported that already. Either way, I can't wait to wake up Christmas morning to open (hopefully) my Wonder Years set. Thoughts?
