    Amen. I'm just starting Season 4 and I've noticed Act 1, Act 2. Act 3, Act 4, and the Epilog are not in a lot of episodes. A lot of the episodes just seem to end when it seems there should be more there.

    Both MP and 90210 were shot on film and edited on video meaning they'd have to go back to the OCNs, scan and recompose the whole show ala Star Trek TNG.

    And they'd have to do the same thing w/O-R CBS Dallas, especially the later gos when that classic 1978-91 serial was on its decline and started being edited on tape (1986-91).

    I would like to see the Timmy and Lassie episodes complete. It is a shame that pirated shows are marketed. On the other hand, if the networks refuse to release shows, pirating at least makes them available, albeit of low quality. I have always felt it is a shame that studios and networks hold their efforts hostage. They should set up a company to release their products, all of them, and that would stop the pirating. Personally, I would sell my soul to see "The Best Of Broadway" version of "Arsenic And Old Lace" with Karloff and Lorre. I know it survives.

    Which means Blu Ray is unlikely for either of them I take it

    As much work as it would take, it would seem just that way.

    I wish The Andy Griffith Show DVDs would use these original closing credits, which are similar to the main title sequence but with the production credits seen over them, also with the sponsor tags.

    Each DVD set should also be divided in fifths over the 30-32 episodes each season:
    Seasons 1, 3, 4 and 5: 32 episodes (episodes per disc layout: 7-7-6-6-6)
    Approximate total running time: 32 x 26 min = 832 min

    Season 2: 31 episodes (episodes per disc layout: 7-6-6-6-6)
    Approximate total running time: 31 x 26 min = 806 min

    Seasons 6, 7 and 8 (all in color): 30 episodes (episodes per disc layout: 6-6-6-6-6)
    Approximate total running time: 30 x 26 min = 780 min

    Not necessarily. They aren't as heavily reliant on special effects as something like a Star Trek show.

    It's not that it would be technically challenging; it's just that combined 90210 and MP have over 500 episodes. Very costly to open up all those cans and put everything back together. As far as I've gathered over the years, the precious OCNs and other materials were saved, so it's up to them if they ever think it's feasible to revisit those two shows, if they find the necessity to make them hi-def for streaming. If I were king of the world, this already would have happened, but I'm not.

    Some episodes from the early seasons are edited poorly and the endings are cut off. Episodes from the later seasons seem to be edited a little better with the endings left in. Such a shame though that this Barnaby Jones series was released with the majority of episodes being edited versions.

    I would like to see "The Magnificent Seven TV Series redone, the one that was issued back in the 2000's was awful quality and there was no excuse for it. Even Encore Westerns had better prints when they showed it.
