By the way, It's About Time is owned by MGM, not Warner, so you're not going to get it from Warner Archives.
There aren't any "missing" episodes. Who at Warner told you that?
I would have voted for FLO but technically it ran 2 reasons so I chose IT TAKES TWO instead. BTW, since the FLO episodes have been digitalized for a few years now I am confident WA will burn sets for those who want them after her character exits ALICE.
As for IT TAKES TWO, in Patty's autobiography she stated the show would have continued but ABC had too many WB shows on the air that season and one had to be axed. It was either them or a fifth season of BENSON, which would have given the latter enough episodes to get the syndication deal. We all know what happened.
I've read about those kinds of network choices before, but I didn't know about that one. But Benson wasn't a Warner Bros. show, so I wonder why those two series were the ones pitted against one another.
Oops, you're right. It was because both were Witt-Thomas-Harris shows. That was the issue.
The Fugitive remake with Tim Daly. I really enjoyed the pilot as a bonus feature on the new blu-ray of the 1993 Harrison Ford movie.
That definitely makes sense. I have never seen It Takes Two, so I didn't realize it was a W/T/H show. Makes even more sense then that they would have gone with Benson.
It was a cute show and got on the air because ABC had just cancelled W/T/H's MAKING A LIVING. I remember thinking the grandmother was hilarious. She was like a prototype for Rose Nylund, only older I suppose. I haven't seen it since 1983 so I don't know how well the writing would hold up, though the cast as you can see is certainly impressive.
I watched one on YouTube after reading your comments earlier today. Very recognizable as a Witt-Thomas-Harris show. The grandmother was Billie Bird who went and did the exact same thing for the last two years of Benson. It was a cute episode, if not especially hilarious. Helen Hunt really did a lot with a brief appearance.

Keep it to WB peopleJames
I could definitely see that as a possibility, since I know that digital masters for that one should at least still be in existence (it was repeated in the US in the '90s and the UK in the 2000s).
Scorch - a very short lived 1992 sitcom. Only three episodes aired before the ax fell. It was unfairly compared to ALF at the time, but I thought it was pretty hilarious. (The title character has long been part of ventriloquist Ronn Lucas' act.) Warners still owns all the Lorimar shows?
Gunslinger and Kodiak are both owned by CBS.
Way, way, way too much music to ever get clearance for a release.
Keeping it to just one show, then it would be Beyond Westworld.
