My guesses. First for Warner Brothers Archives:

A Man Called Shenandoah
The Rounders
Temple Houston
Adventures of Gulliver (HB)
Goldie Gold and Action Jack
Fangface
Suddenly Susan
Enos


Possibly from Kino/Wal Mart?
Trackdown
Hec Ramsey
Doctor Doolittle
(Depatie Freling)

VEI
Evening Shade (complete series)
Promised Land
Project UFO
Jake 2.0
John Doe


Confirmed releases:
Mr. Novak
Blue Knight
Perfect Strangers
(continuing on from season 2)


As per last year's guesses, I did get one out of twenty, that being The Magician. So keep that in mind when it comes to my predictions. We had about twenty-five to thirty unreleased series coming out this year; so I think it's premature to call TVDVD dead just yet. And I think it will be reasonable to assume we will be getting something from WB Archives, Kino, Shout, and VEI. Biggest surprises for 2017 were Coronet Blue and It's About Time, so I wouldn't any series out. Various series from WB Archives such as Alice, Jamie Foxx, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Living Single, What I Like About You, and the Wayun Brothers will continue on and be completed.

Other observations?

James

I'm long past the point trying to make predictions because of the diminishing returns but I'd sure like to know why Warner Archive still can't get the final season "The Eleventh Hour" out.

Being the eternal optimist, I'll point out CBS is still plugging away at The Beverly Hillbillies on their official page. Anything's better than nothing, I suppose, but can't we get the whole series out by now instead of piece by piece?

I'm sorry about the diminishing returns, but we're just hoping for the best . . . and shooting for the stars. Hope your Eleventh Hour season 2 comes out.

My 2018 Holy Grail List:

Jeannie (1973 Animated): Mark Hamill's recent rise in visibility (Star Wars, The Last Jedi) might complicate any possible release of Jeannie as getting his OK, if required would prove expensive. But that might cut both ways as Sony/Columbia could see a marketing opportunity to release this as a early work of Mark's if he approved. I'd say why not but I'm betting other issues at Columbia are holding Jeannie up.

Partridge Family 2200 AD (1973, Animated): Another HB toon now owned by Sony/Columbia Pictures Industries and another one in some sort of Columbia limbo.

Captain Nice (1967).

Mr. Terrific (1967).


Quark (1978): Available on DVD but would love a remastered Blu.

Ruff And Reddy (1950s, Complete series).

I would really like to see seasons 2 - 4 of The Defenders more than anything else. Other series I would love to see put out on DVD are - Fantastic Journey - one of the few SF series which hasn't been released.
My World and Welcome to It A fascinating series I have always wondered why it has not been released.
He and She Another interesting comedy series.
The Debbie Reynolds Show. One that I enjoyed watching at the time.
It's The Wolf The Hana Barbera cartoon series.
The Paul Lynde Show I have never seen it but Paul Lynde always makes me laugh.
Ben Casey One of the great drama series yet to be released.
Cowboy in Africa Most of the other Ivan Tors productions have been released.

All of these are sadly probably unlikely
