    Technically, one of my predictions earlier in this thread could still possibly be valid... the short-run horror anthology series, Darkroom (1981-82), had gotten a legit, licensed DVD release in Australia, almost a decade ago, via Madman Entertainment.

    Well if we have to go by previous on DVD releases than it's either going to be "Night Gallery" or "Amazing Stories" (which never had a second season release in the US). "Columbo" would be great with bells and whistles.

    In a way I'm sad... but I'm also quite happy with the DVDs on that one.

    If they are only permitted, at this time, to do re-releases, I'd like to see them tackle...
    McCloud (1970-1977)
    McMillan (and Wife) (1971-1977)
    The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977-1979)
    The Incredible Hulk (1978-1982)
    James A. Michener's Centennial (miniseries, 1978-1979)
    Simon and Simon (1981-1989)
    Miami Vice (1984-1990)
    Charles in Charge (1984-1985, 1987-1990)

    But if they can do what is not released yet, as I said before...
    Baretta (1975-1978)
    The Invisible Man (1975-1976)
    Ellery Queen (1975-1976)
    Switch (1975-1978)
    The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo (1979-1981)
    B. J. and the Bear (1979-1981)
    When the Whistle Blows (1980)
    Domestic Life (1984)
    Still the Beaver/The New Leave It to Beaver (1984-1989)
    Fast Times (1986)

    Northern Exposure already has an essentially perfect UK Blu-Ray release. Kino couldn’t top that and I don’t see why they’d try. Shows that aren’t available on Blu-Ray worldwide are much more profitable than ones that are.

    That would be nice because the DVD botched the pilot movie by playing the Mystery Movie music over the titles instead of the proper title music by Elmer Bernstein.

    I don't have the DVDs, but clearing the music for Northern Exposure on Blu-ray for a NA release would be costly, so that probably rules it out (unless they go with whatever the DVDs used/omitted)--the UK has different music copyright laws, so it's a not an issue for home video releases. Many TV shows have been ruled out, so I'm going to repeat my guess that it's Buck Rogers or Amazing Stories.

    I would think that Buck Rogers wouldn't be a great seller considering it's been out for years both in Australia and the UK, and I suspect it has had a lot of imports.

    Would love to see most of Lawrence and Henry's picks be released, especially Fay and Lucas Tanner.

    Nope. The insider said the show they are releasing had a previous US DVD release.

    Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like whatever the show is, I either already have it (Thriller, Johnny Staccato, Dragnet, Columbo, It Takes a Thief) or have no interest in it (most likely the latter)... unless it's a 'remastered-from-vault-elements' release of something previously released by Timeless (using old collectors' prints), like Soldiers of Fortune, M-Squad, 87th Precinct or Checkmate.

    I enjoyed Domestic Life. It was a decent show.
