    Didn't they repeat some of the segments alongside new ones?

    Except for the first show and last show, this reads like a list of which shows absolutely won't be seen again, either on television or DVD! Luckily for you, most of them either aired in the era when we had VCRs and we could tape the show we liked, or in the case of most of the ones from the 70s, at least a couple of episodes of each aired on TV Land for us to record. Although I have to say, you came up with 3 shows on your list that neither I nor anyone else who is serious about collecting, has any episodes of. Archer, Cop and the Kid and Szysznyk. Since the latter 2 are on 2-inch tape, there's no chance they would even be around among film collectors.

    The first show on his list is He & She. Is there talk again of that being released?

    There was, prior to the CBS bloodletting. Now all bets are off.

    A great shame as I would have liked to see it again.

    I would like to retire my Frankenstein set, culled from different sources, film, USA Network, Canada run, etc.

    I really think what is going on right now can be neither confirmed nor denied... I would rather suggest that they will still do something later this year or the next.

    If CBS-Paramount are still proceeding with licensing shows to VEI, I'd love to see the entire One Step Beyond released on DVD. The 1st season set released by CBS was nice, especially with all the shoddy PD releases, but I want the other seasons in good condition.

    Wasn't someone working on a ONE STEP BEYOND set - either licneced from "CBS" or The Most complete Public Domain one?

    Who really knows? I do not want to think negatively about what is going on over at ViacomCBS, and I do not want to think they will suddenly destroy whatever 35mm prints they have simply because they're too expensive to digitize for DVD/streaming.

    Every studio and major media companies have an assets management division, and no studio in their right mind would destroy ANY holdings of value - and the TV Library - all of - even shows not used in decades has value. They are not going to up and destroy material - it's not like that.

    That's such a ridiculous statement. Why would any company destroy its assets, in this day and age?

    I agree that it's ridiculous -- however if they have no plans of ever digitizing/scanning them anyway, then it's not that far of a stretch for them to destroy them as well. Why store something that you've decided you have no intention of ever utilising?

    I do not want them to destroy them, but I wish them all the best for what's left! We do not want a repeat of the DuMont dumped-at-sea situation!

    They even have 16mm prints and negatives on a lot of shows and those certainly wouldn't have any purpose, unless for some reason a 35mm print or negative was somehow lost or damaged. As for intentions, they can always change. Decades ago, no one had any intention of ever re-airing any game shows or sporting events. But, here we are today and things have changed.

    I do hope they will get season 20 of Gunsmoke released on DVD in time!
