    Hmmm...need to think about this one. Off the top of my head:

    For U.S. shows:

    Trackdown
    Richard Diamond
    The Outsider
    Run For Your Life
    T.H.E. Cat


    For U.K. shows:

    Above all, I'd like to see the return of the "lost" episodes of 60s Doctor Who (particularly from the Patrick Troughton era), Adam Adamant Lives! and Doomwatch, among others.

    I'm sure there are some I'm forgetting...

    If I get to pick two more, I'd add Hawaiian Eye and the 1970's era WWII documentary series G.I. Diary.

    I wasn't going to reply since I couldn't narrow it down to only 5 selections, but since our gracious moderator is allowing for 3 more... :)

    Here are my 8 choices:

    Chico and the Man
    The Defenders
    (including the later TV movies that aired on Showtime)
    Dragnet (50s series)
    Family
    The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show
    (including the final season without Gracie, renamed The George Burns Show)
    He & She
    The New Dick Van Dyke Show
    Switch

    Honestly, I would still have had trouble narrowing down what I want if given an option of 20 shows, but these 8 I listed are definitely among my most wanted.

    Ben Casey
    Adventures in Paradise
    Empire
    The Outsider
    Long Hot Summer

    Those are series that have not been released in any form, not even partially. But I would include lots more that have been stalled, including, of course, The Defenders.

    Aw, c'mon... :laugh:

    I was just having some fun.

    I don't want to change the intent of the original poster. He set the standard at five and five it should remain.

    I'll let your post of 8 titles remain in place, though Dave..."grandfathered" in. :D

    -Lassie (complete)

    -St. Elsewhere

    -Gunsmoke (until done: remastered)

    -SNL(Season 6--and on)

    -The complete Son of Svengoolie from 1979-1983 the complete run from WKBD channel 50 Detroit---Ok that is a dream because Sven himself told me the master tapes were thrown out in the trash. But hey, this is a "wish" thread. Maybe a janitor noticed them in the dumpster, and rescued them, and upon his death they will be discovered at an estate sale. It is possible:thumbs-up-smiley:
