    As others have noted, reading the different lists of shows Universal owns demonstrates to me they have very, very little I'm interested in that hasn't already been released on DVD (with Restless Gun being the lone exception because the prints were not great). I have no interest in the drama, medical, psych stuff from the 60's on up. Neither do I need an upgrade on the few sci-fi or horror titles I already own. In fact, other than Hec Ramsey (for Richard Boone) and Sheriff Lobo (for Claude Akins) I can't think of one title from '66 on up I'd purchase. Maybe I'd give the short-lived Gemini Man a try just for a nostalgia kick. But everything else from '66 on up I've either got on DVD or have no interest in.

    Now, what Kino will NOT go for that I'd love to see is any of the Revue library from the 50's and early 60's. I'd go for almost any one of the westerns, comedies, or crime/drama series from that era. Won't happen though. Of that I'm sure. Sigh...

    For shorter run stuff I'd like to see them do "Operation Petticoat" which at one season plus ten episodes (though the 2nd season should never have happened) and the presence of John Astin and Jamie Lee Curtis could help make that more sellable.

    "Switch" was another title from the 70s I'd hoped to see but supposedly all tape transfers were lost and we'd have to see that totally redone.

    I'd certainly like to retire my R4 release of "The Law And Harry McGraw" one of the few 80s titles I have.

    But no more westerns.....please!

    Have no fear, my friend. I don't think 50's TV westerns are in Kino's wheelhouse.

    I still need "The D.A." to finish that incomplete "Adam-12" crossover story! :D

    And I'd like to see both more '50s and '60s westerns and more '70s and '80s cop shows and supernatural stuff! ;)

    Whatever Kino has plans to release, it likely won't please all of us...but I'm glad they are releasing any catalog TV content at all!

    I know I saw a budget DVD of the pilot for Get Christy Love in a gas station a few years back. Better than nothing!

    Shout had interest in the series but as with many shows which were never syndicated, no usable elements were available (of course the 35mm prints exist but transfer costs are prohibitive). Luckily, the crossover episode was one of the four included in the re-edited TV movie put together from the series.

    Would love better prints available of Laramie. The current DVDs are very poor quality. But Probably too many seasons at 4

    Came out in Germany years ago and that's as good as you're gonna get on that show. I want Karen as I liked that show with Debbie much better.

    Yes I know about the release in Germany. I think they should still consider releasing it here too. I did read about Karen online and it sounded like an interesting show. I wouldn't mind seeing that too.

    McCloud done right, Banacek back in print and single-sides Quincy “season 2” would be very much appreciated.

    And if the 2nd season of Quincy, M.E. were packaged that way, then to me that would be:
    DISC 1:
    2x01: "Snake Eyes" (parts 1-2) (2/4/77)
    2x02: "...The Thigh Bone's Connected to the Knee Bone" (2/11/77)
    2x03: "Visitors in Paradise" (2/18/77)

    DISC 2:
    2x04: "The Two Sides of the Truth" (2/25/77)
    2x05: "Hit and Run at Danny's" (3/11/77)
    2x06: "Has Anybody Here Seen Quincy?" (3/18/77)

    DISC 3:
    2x07: "A Good Smack in the Mouth" (4/15/77)
    2x08: "The Hot Dog Murder" (4/22/77)
    2x09: "An Unfriendly Radiance" (4/29/77)

    DISC 4:
    2x10: "Sullied Be Thy Name" (5/6/77)
    2x11: "Valleyview" (5/13/77)
    2x12: "Let Me Light the Way" (5/27/77)

    Not to mention the producer, writers and cast of "Saturday Night Live" quitting. Incredibly, NBC decided to continue the show anyway!

    Regarding "Sixth Sense" -- those were syndicated as part of "Night Gallery" in edited form with new wraparounds by Rod Serling. Any interest in those, maybe as extras on a Night Gallery or Sixth Sense set?

    I know it's unlikely there will ever be an official accounting of exactly what was/was not lost in that fire -- just thinking about the music is staggering -- but is there any kind of list of Universal (or Universal-owned) series which were produced on video?

    I know I'm beating a dead horse here but all those episodes are first season (1976-77) regardless of Universal's packaging.
