    Oops, my bad... I was using DVD/Film Aficionado as a quick reference guide, forgetting that they've fallen behind lately on listing some classic TV releases (and I don't collect Love Boat personally, so that's a blind spot).

    My bad back would go dancing in the streets if it was the rest, or even S6, of The Beverly Hillbillies complete and uncut. It just had an anniversary yesterday-57 years.

    "Stalled" implies something that has had releases and then stopped, as opposed to something that's never been released at all.

    But "finally licensed out by the rights holder" implies something that's never been released.

    Are you sure "stalled" is the correct word?

    I hate these guessing games, because I get my hopes up for certain things, and then it turns out to be something I couldn't care less about. I don't know why you just can't tell us what it is, but there's a lot I don't know; I'll just add this to the very long list.

    The short lived Fast Times at Ridgemont High spinoff tv show ?

    (IIRC, it was on during spring 1986 on CBS).

    With "finally licensed out", I believe that takes into account CBS's unwillingness to license anything out for the longest time outside of, what, the handful of titles VEI got, and the couple Shout had.

    They've never been ones to let stuff go like Uni, Fox, and Sony have, and almost never anything major or often requested.

    Well, I'm not crazy about these guessing games, either, but I understand that Neil might not be at liberty to say further at this point. Also, knowing him, it's likely not a show from the '80s and beyond, as he's not usually interested in anything past the '70s. If it's a show that's been stalled for a while and is talked about often here on the HTF, it could be Petticoat Junction...although if Gary O, and others think that's unlikely, then it's probably a long shot. No other guesses here, but whatever it is, if it's a classic TV release, it's bound to make some fans here happy, and that's a good thing.

    I wonder what has caused this sudden impetus on the part of CBS to start digging through the vaults to give us these classics, hopefully this is not just a blip and that the pattern continues for a few years.

    By the way I hope it's the Defenders.

    Either The Defenders or One Step Beyond would be great.

    But I don't think The Defenders checks off all the boxes, does it? Was that show stalled because of rights? I don't think so. I remember the discussion being it was stalled simply due to sales.

    Gary "as I said earlier, it's hard to get a handle on any typical CBS property that actually checks all the boxes" O.

    The only show on my "Stalled" list that gets all the checks is The Donna Reed Show. It's been stalled some time, presumably due to issues with the rights holders, and has been discussed as needing to continue fairly regularly on HTF.

    It's from Screen Gems and originally aired on ABC, who apparently shared production credits. IMDB shows the current distributor to be Sony Pictures Television, not CBS, but...

    When Neil first mentioned a stalled show possibly being released yesterday, my mind thought of things like:

    Benson
    Love American Style
    Ozzie & Harriet
    White Shadow
    Happy Days
    Archie Bunker’s Place
    Rookies
    Donna Reed Show

    I may have missed something, but why has Petticoat Junction been ruled out?

    It had releases, but the last one was over five years ago (fits the definition of ‘stalled’).

    Speculation over why later seasons were not forthcoming was due to music used/performed (‘rights issues’)

    Has several threads discussing it, and it’s non-appearance (would imply ‘much requested’)

    It was released by Paramount (essentially CBS).

    If a another company releases it (Shout, Mill Creek, VEI) that would mean ‘licensed’
