    I hate to admit it, but after about 1975, I don't even know what is Warner's and what isn't

    Frankly, I found nothing pathetic about it. Warner Archive has been doing a great job of putting out "one and done" series and I'm not about to bash them. BTW, it was via their FB page.

    Wikipedia, but of course, you can't trust them for their inaccuracies, so bring on AMCS at WB!

    I would like to see Warner release Mortal Kombat. I would assume that they own it since they released it in Australia about 4 years ago. This show only lasted one season but the reason for the cancellation was not ratings. The ratings apparently were good enough for a second season but it ran into the same financing issues that ended The Lost World tv series. As a result, it had one of the most unusual endings in tv history. The bad guy wins. Obviously it was part of a cliff-hanger but it ends with Shao Khan seemingly to have destroyed his enemies both good and bad.

    Who knows if they will, but to get THE SMURFS you have to order from AUSTRALIA as they have released the whole series there. Although the packiging is like HOUSE on blu-ray was. scratched and broke discs due to having no hubs.

    Believe these to be WB/owned. With clearances, could all be short and sweet releases.

    The irony for me is that, while Warner is currently doing the best work (as the big studios go) on getting more classics and semi-obscurities out on DVD/MOD, they're probably the studio (along with Sony) with the least number of series I care much about owning... CBS/Paramount, Fox and Universal are the ones with the short-run goodies I want most.

    That being said, I'd like to see these from Warner Archives:

    THE DAKOTAS
    THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN (1968, prime-time Hanna-Barbera)
    DIANA (1973, not sure if this is with WB or not, and it's actually something I'd rather stream first to appraise, rather than 'blind buy')
    CAIN'S HUNDRED (maybe... I'd like to 'test drive' it, via streaming)
    THE TRAVELS OF JAMIE McPHEETERS (maybe... ditto)

    There are invariably some forgotten gems buried in the WB/MGM/Lorimar television catalogs that I might like, but I have no way of knowing what they might be, or that I'd enjoy them enough to want to own them.

    "Diana" was produced by Talent Associates/Norton Simon which should mean the same rightsholders of "Get Smart!" should have the rights to it and that's not Warner (though would that mean HBO or CBS?)

    The episode with Patrick Macnee, loaded with "Avengers" in-jokes I think is the only one most people would want to see.

    He and She would be another one I'd love to see. I believe even though it aired on CBS, Warner's owns the right's to the Talent Associates library

    I bet Cop Rock would be a nightmare music clearance wise.

    Not sure who would own the DVD rights but its always been syndicated by Viacom, which would now put it with CBS. But maybe not for home video rights, although I know that its been talked about there.

    Forgot about James Garner's Bret Maverick. I'm pretty sure Garner fans would want to see that short lived series.

    I thought all of the music in Cop Rock was original and written specifically for use on the series. If that is the case, then the music clearance shouldn't be that difficult.

    What newsletter? Anyway, got all of the Stewart shows from Good Life a few years ago so we know they are all transferred and remastered.
