    The Thin Man - sure Peter Lawford pales in comparison to William Powell, but I've enjoyed the few episodes that I've seen.
    The Roaring Twenties - have never seen this show, but given how much I like The Untouchables, I'd be willing to take a look at what may very well be a knock-off series.

    How about Goodnight Beantown (w/Bill Bixby and Mariette Hartley)-- this short-lived 1982-83 and 1983-84 CBS comedy (which was on for 5 outings on Sundays at 8 at the bottom of the 1982-83 season [same exact dates, believe it or not, as those of the miniseries of O-R Dallas, which is the first season on the first-and-second-season DVD release of that series], and then for 13 more outings on Sundays at 9:30 [before Trapper John, M.D.] from Oct. 1983 to Jan. 1984) had, at least IMO, a pretty catchy title track, especially in its second and final season. Here is the first part of a second-season episode of that CBS comedy, "A Felon Needs a Girl," OAD Oct. 15, 1983 on CBS (the video incorrectly states Oct. 16):

    Oh, yes, how I wish both those shows could bust out of the vault. Unfortunately, there appears to be real rights complications with both, literary estate, music etc. Roaring '20s was a decent show, definitely Warner's attempt to cash in on the huge success of The Untouchables, but differing from The Untouchables with it's emphasis on comedy and music in the template of other popular WB shows like 77 Sunst Strip, Hawaiian Eye, etc. But I've only seen two episodes in the collecting era. I Dimly remember watching it first run, strongest memories are of it's catchy theme music and opening credits montage of wild and hilarious 1920s imagery.

    I thought that Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk were a very creditable Nick and Nora. They certainly exemplified the boozy and classy cool of the original characters, transposed to the late 1950s, although they weren't the great Myrna Loy and William Powell. A fun show, good mysteries, some big name guest stars (especially in season two) and the well schooled and cute antics of Asta. Here are some seldom seen publicity photos for The Thin Man...

    I heard it said that Hart to Hart was in the late 70s and early 80s on ABC what The Thin Man was in the 50s on NBC-- is that true?

    I would agree with that Ben, definitely the same concept and charming feel to those two shows. I don't know if the publicity machine behind Hart to Hart referenced The Thin Man, movies and tv, but I bet they did. Mr. and Mrs. North also mined the same theme, and I bet in the long history of television there are others too.

    Indeed-- even the back side of that four-disc Mr. and Mrs. North release had a mention of Hart to Hart (I don't have that release anymore, else I'd scan the back of that release and show it).

    I really REALLY appreciate WA releasing more and more titles but I wish they'd complete a show before they started on another one. It makes me worry when they stop releasing a show and start on 2 or 3 others.

    Guys, do you think its sales that can make a WB title move to the front of the line? If a newly released series does really well, WB Archives will speed up the release dates of following seasons? Conversely if a tv show does poorly, it goes to the back of the line till enough copies are sold to justify a second release?

    ^^^Possibly but not sure.

    I know once they started with season 5 of "Family Matters", that series was wrapped up quickly.

    "Living Single" is also getting finished quick.

    And OT, but similar-- when Shout! carried forward with the third go of Hart to Hart, all of the rest of that ABC detective/romance series (1981-84) was out quite quickly.

    I really wish they would release the remaing seasons of MADtv or at least season 5 and 6. I've been waiting for Shout to continue but it's been 5 years since they last release any seasons. So WA maybe my only hope.

    Yes! Season 5 was one of the best. I'd like to own at least 5, 6, & 7 so all of the Ms. Swan sketches can be completed.

    She also appeared once in season 9 (which is included as a special feature on the season 1 DVD), once in 10 (included on the best of seasons 8, 9, & 10 DVD), and once in 14...which is unavailable.

    We were lucky at all to get this series.
    Warner did this DVD set on the cheap and despite the less than stellar print quality, had respectable sales.
    Several years ago I spoke with both Jack Larson and Noel Neill about this set and they told me Warner Bros.wouldn't pay them for their narration, but because of their love for the show, they did it for free.
