Yes, about Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie... breakdowns of original season openings:Sanford and Son. This show deserves a full-on new transfer with no syndicated episodes. And I would love to see, just once at least, the full end credits film play out to the end (where the theme gets wild and funky.. It is usually cut short by the new syndication dates billboard tacked to the end of most season 2-6 eps) and Fred and Lamont continue to load the truck and annoy each other. This aired a time or two during the original run.
Bob Newhart Show - This never looked "new" when it was new, but Ideally the original negatives would be restored. I'm led to believe that the last two seasons are/were in miserable shape in the vaults.
Newhart - Needs work. Shout, erm, tried, I guess you could say, to present these as complete as possible, but it needs restoration from the ground-up. Mostly film edited on video so I guess it would be an expensive effort a-la Seinfeld, if attempted. Not likely, I know.
I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched, with correct themes for all seasons (no more of that darned IDoJ theme with the splice in the audio when the title pops up! Spoils the tempo. Listen for it.), and in proper b&w and color where appropriate. Also, preferably, uncut/not tampered with and no "wobbly" sounding episodes, where the audio flutters throughout (can't remember which ones but both shows had episodes affected.
The Rifleman could look better.
The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin - we need this without the pc cuts, without the filmized look, and with all of Reggie's "toothbrush" speech stuff intact, dropouts and all.
Coach unedited, please and thank you!
Gomer Pyle for obvious musical reasons.
