Is there any remote chance wagon train ever gets re-released?
Is there a chance Route 66 and Naked City get remastered and released on BluRay?

Keep in mind people. It's all about where the MONEY IS.
And how they can milk you.
They will try and release the same things over & over.
With new packing. But the same old-looking stuff you have now on the disc. Watch what you re-buy.
Check things really well.

In a TV Guide article on Robert Horton from late June 1961, he was critical of the show, saying the episodes are talky when they used to be full of action, even calling season four of WT as being soap-operish!

Why Horton would go on to star in a soap opera As The World Turns on CBS in the early 80s as Whit McColl before his character was killed off!

I thought the show really lost something when Robert Horton left. I was never a big fan of Robert Fuller - I always found him a bit one-note.

It’s a shame that WT hardly has any hour long color episodes. Most of the color episodes they do have are 90 min long and don’t fit easily into rerun slots. Because the show was in B&W during its best years, it was never really rerun as much as color shows like Bonanza.

And the fact that fuller character was basically a carbon copy of flint doesnt help. Him and Scott Miller had very little personality like that of Horton who could be dramatic but also comedic.
