Uncensored episodes of Beavis and Butthead.

MASH is a likely candidate, I suppose.

Cheers, but they'd have to restore the music for the last few seasons and fix the edited finale.

Odd Couple is also a show that needs music fixing.

Fugitive is HD ready, assuming they use the correct masters with no bad synthesizer music.

But honestly, the only shows I expect to get a Blu release are Universal shows through Mill Creek, so... Emergency, Columbo, A-Team, Magnum PI, Incredible Hulk. Those have HD masters ready, some have even been released overseas already.

Pulling out a bit further, there's Munsters, Murder She Wrote, Leave it to Beaver, Adam 12 and Dragnet 6X. The last three would need to wait out their Shout licensing period first, though.

Land of the Giants. Just the discs please no special box.
Flipper looks great on DVD. How about the whole series on blu ray this time.
Deep friggin Space Niner!!!

also Mill Creek did fine with That 70s show. I'm enjoying mine. they should upgrade Rosanne and Married with Children too. I'd buy those completes in a second.

Releases that have HD masters:
Andy Griffith Show
Hawaii Five O (original series)
Emergency!
Mannix

If I had a dream:
Route 66
Outer Limits
Cannon
Barnaby Jones

These would be for starters for me.

I want more vintage series to come out on DVD period, before asking for shows that have already come out on digital to be upgraded to Blue Ray.

Otherwise, I'd think the original Outer Limits should made it out on DVD.

What is vintage? I'll settle with 70's or earlier.

Charlie's Angels - HD masters do exist. I've seen the 16x9 ones on Universal HD a few years ago. I'm sure Sony has the 4x3 masters too.

Hawaii 5-0 - HD masters exist. Beautiful cinematography of Hawaii that beats both Magnum PI and the new Hawaii 5-0 show.

Mission Impossible - I've seen the HD masters on Netflix. It's definitely worth a release.

Columbo - My understanding is that the Japanese Blu-Ray set is upscaled from SD and is interlaced. Australian publisher Madman Entertainment released Season 1 and 2 in real HD blu-ray but hasn't released anything else.

The Outer Limits - I've heard the archival elements aren't in great shape. But if they can look half as good as The Twilight Zone, I believe they're worth an HD release.

The Naked City - Very underrated cinematography shot on location in New York City.

Get Smart - My favorite 60's comedy. Family sitcoms like Dick Van Dyke, Andy Griffith, Lucy, etc have never been my favorites.

Hogan's Heroes - I've seen the HD masters in syndication (either Universal HD or HDNet) and loved them.

Update:

Some additions

I'd like to see Highway Patrol, Perry Mason, The 6 Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman as well.

=====================

All these series were shot on film. As for BB , PF and Riptide I have both sets on DVD. All could stand a Blu upgrade.

Now that Rockford Files has just been announced for BD, I can cross it off my list! Other than a few exceptions, I doubt any shows in my wish list will come to fruition:

The Outer Limits
The Fugitive
Millennium
Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel
The Man from UNCLE
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (no up-conversions, please)
Magnum, PI (Region A--the UK import is expensive!)
Columbo (Region A NA release)
Night Gallery
Alfred Hitchcock Presents/Hour
Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman
Alias (perhaps not "vintage", but it's over 15 years old)

If we're just dreaming rather than looking at something that has a serious chance, I'd say Alfred Hitchcock Presents/Hour.

odd that you say serious chance. The original Twilight Zone was initially released by Image/CBS, fingers are crossed that Kino will be releasing Outer Limits:TOS.

this being a Universal title and who their release partners are; either Shout! Factory or Mill Creek, I will give you one guess as to the company that would be able to do this title, a quality release. just wish that some kind of work would be done on this specific title.

This has already come to fruition in Australia from Madman, Region-Free and can be had for a reasonable price.
