Dynasty (All 9 seasons, Paramount)
You might want to correct that listing, because AFAIK, the first release was a FOX release, with the other 8 seasons (second singly, and 7 more in volumes) being from Paramount.

My mistake, I thought Paramount had re-released the first season as the Fox release is now out of print. I found a seasons 1& 2 combo release from Paramount but upon closer look it appears that it contains the Fox release of Season 1. I have corected the listing.

Riverboat really seems to have been canceled midway through its second season, as it only lasts 13 episodes after 31 of the first one. I did buy the DVD package when it came out but found the series quickly went downhill after Burt Reynolds left during the first season.

One small correction. Dark Shadows didn't air in 'seasons'. The show was a daily soap so it was on 5 days a week for the entire year and it was on for 5 years not 6. It started in June of 1966 and went off in April of 1971 (just slightly short of a full 5 years).

Hotel (or Arthur Hailey's Hotel, technically): season 1 (CBS/Paramount)

Thanks again for these great lists. I turn to them often to check on things. (I was wondering if the Hotel set was OOP & couldn't find it in the 80s list)

Thanks, I am happy that people actually like the lists- I enjoyed putting them together even though I am not familiar with most of the 50s & 60s shows (before my time).


Hotel has been added to the list, not sure how I missed it?! The S1 set from Paramount is out of print but don't worry as this is one of the titles that was recently announced as coming soon from VEI.

Terrific list! Don't see Wild Wild West, for which all four seasons are available on DVD.

I thought I would ask here I've done several times searching for an a thread for the Mission Impossible TV series is there one on the forum? I couldn't even locate one for any of the season sets. Thanks if anyone comes across one.
