    Martin Blythe,
    There is TV life beyond Star Trek, you know. I want to see:
    Cheers
    Family Ties
    The Odd Couple
    Taxi
    Webster
    In the original airing order, uncut, and with the original logos. And season-by-season sets!

    Unlike Matthew, I will say "please". [​IMG]
    But, yes...I 2nd the motion for most of these (not webster, but the episode where Webster appears with Worf would make a cool supplement for a TNG disc! [​IMG] )

    Did you want us to respect your cause? You just damned your cause.
    Did you want to make us fear? You just steeled our resolve.
    Did you want to tear us apart? You just brought us together.

    I would buy all of those tv shows on dvd. Correct me if I'm wrong(which is possible cause it was 7:00 am in the morning when I saw it)but doesn't Paramount own Duckman. I would love to see that on DVD. Peace

    I would love to add "Laverne and Shirley" to this list of television shows from Paramount. Too many cuts have been made to this series over the years for syndication, and it would be nice to have them recut for their entirity.

    I would pick up Cheers and Frasier, but I am thinking Martin Blythe might have seen the "official" TV Series thread. My full list is in there. You'll forgive me if I don't know entirely which series Paramount owns.
    Oh, and Seven Days. Guilty pleasure.

    Even though these three classic tv series weren't originally produced or distributed by Paramount, the studio nonetheless controls them now, and I'd really like to see them released on DVD (with roughly 3 hours worth of episodes per disc):
    1. THE WILD WILD WEST (1965-69, starring Robert Conrad & Ross Martin)
    2. THE FUGITIVE (1963-67, starring David Janssen)
    3. THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1964-66, starring John Astin & Carolyn Jones)
    I'd also like to see these two short-lived Paramount tv series on DVD, that could be taken care of with a couple of discs each:
    1. POLICE SQUAD! (1982, 6 half-hour episodes, which could easily fit on a single DVD)
    2. THE WESTERNER (1960, an adult tv western, starring Brian Keith, and created, produced and directed by Sam "THE WILD BUNCH" Peckinpah. 14 half-hour episodes, plus an hour-long 'sequel' episode, also directed by Peckinpah, entitled "The Losers", done for DICK POWELL THEATER (also owned by Paramount), updating the setting and main character to modern times, now played by Lee Marvin)

    I second Peter's choice of The Addams Family (original b/w series) Terrific series, and very funny indeed.
    Please, Mr Blythe! [​IMG]

    I also want to see The Addams Family on DVD in season-by-season format.

    I also agree that Police Squad! should be released on DVD.

    I second todd s choice of Mission Impossible

    Well, Police Squad would of course be easiest to do, there being only 6 episodes.

    The original "Addams Family," someone has told me, is now distributed by MGM.

    I would absolutely love to have Family Ties on DVD. Season sets in original air order. That's all I ask.
