    Completed AND released in just five?

    Burke's Law
    Love Boat
    Fantasy Island
    Alfred Hitchcock Presents (that I HAVE to include this on the list is a disgrace)

    A final choice is tough. And I have to say tied for fifth and to make it two "unreleased shows" for the 70s "Operation Petticoat" and for the 80s "Crazy Like A Fox".

    Boy, that was hard to keep to five only...easier if you have, at least, barely acceptable "alternatives" for many other highly desirable series. Viva La Anarchy!

    The names of these five are actually in an envelope and the deal with myself is if any or all of them is released, I'm buying. Other than those, I'm done buying TV on DVD/BD.

    Wow, Regulus..I know you often refer to Hot Wheels and Skyhawks in your postings, but I've never even heard of Run Joe Run! and Westwind. They do sound interesting, based on their Wikipedia descriptions.

    One with two seasons to go, four with the majority of their runs unreleased:

    St. Elsewhere
    Knots Landing
    Silver Spoons
    Webster
    (Hulu has the last two seasons with Corin Nemec and Mayim Bialik, but, like all Paramount shows, with huge gaps where music-centric episodes used to be)
    227 (It's on Crackle, but their interface is crapola and their constant unskippable ads are worse than cable)

    I guess you know some of these are available on DVD in a single episode best of form. But complete sets would be nice. I loved Dr. Shrinker! (Hums the theme song)

    Assuming we are talking all remastered in HD. If not, my list would change slightly. But I'll go on that assumption, along with the series being completed regardless of length.

    First one is easiest, then the rest fall in order of importance for me:

    Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet (THE remaining great sitcom that has yet to be released in season sets)
    Lassie (having all these, especially the Ranger years, in HD would be absolutely gorgeous)
    Amos & Andy (this would be such a treat, but we know in today's world it won't ever happen)
    Gray Ghost (supremely underrated, imho)
    Walt Disney's Disneyland/Presents/Wonderful World of Color/Wonderful World of Disney (this would allow completions to so many Disney short series)


    If I could fudge a little, I'd add the following shows that are lingering and need completion:

    Beverly Hillbillies
    Petticoat Junction
    Gunsmoke
    My Three Sons
    Donna Reed Show



    Gary "couldn't resist chiming in on this list" O.
