    The only shows I know of that I am interested in are Flo, Jimmy Stewart Show, the two short-lived Maverick series (especially Bret Maverick), The Dakotas, and the Alaskans. Beyond those, I don't currently know of any others, although I am trying to keep an open mind on some shows, as I continue to find other shows in their library that might interest me.

    I'll second that. I'm happy and probably should consider myself lucky just to have the pilot episode since I never thought it would see the light of day. Same way with Then Came Bronson. Glad to have that as well but would like the series.Bronson was one season and it's surprising how few mention it so I guess I will. Maybe somebody did and I just missed it. I'll go back and re-read.

    Only show out of those you've listed I've heard of, is Flamingo Road. Did want to suggest that title (even though it aired for two seasons, preceded by a possible feature length pilot episode), but wasn't sure if it was a Lorimar show that would have music clearance problems (like with Knots Landing), or whether it would be a more straightforward path to a Warner Home Video/Warner Archive DVD release (like Dallas and Falcon Crest).

    I'd sure go for Temple Houston.

    Another short-lived show (but this one is more of a short-short-lived show, as there appear to be only two episodes which were shown, based on it's main IMDb page) I'd like to see released by the Warner Archive, is Adams of Eagle Lake (starring Andy Griffith).

    I would like to see Quinn Martin's 1930's private eye series Banyon starring Robert Forster. There are 15 episodes and a pilot movie. According to Wikipedia, Time/Warner currently has the rights.

    Search would be up there at the top of my list for short lived shows. Glad you mentioned Then Came Bronson. I have all the episodes from both those shows but would definitely buy it for superior quality prints.

    Not absolutely sure if WB's own these but would love to see The Men wheel series (Assignment: Vienna; The Delphi Bureau and Jigsaw) get a release. Also Jigsaw John.

    Banyon would be interesting, but my understanding is that "The FBI" is the only QM show that Warner controls. He did shows "produced in association with Warner Brothers" that are under CBS/Paramount control like "Streets Of San Francisco" and I think that would apply to "Banyon" as well as the other 70s QM titles ("Twelve O'Clock High" would be the one QM show controlled by Fox; which means we'll never see it)

    I will echo a vote for YOUNG MAVERICK. Add to that my need to whole 'complete' sets of series, thus I want to add BRET MAVERICK to that list.

    For me definitely it is THEN CAME BRONSON starring Michael Parks.
    Great Series with fine outdoor camera work and great music by George Duning and others.

    But at the moment clearance of music rights puts it on hold getting released by Warner Archive.
    But I hope that this TV Show is still on Warner Archive's radar and
    that the music rights issue will be cleared soon ...

    Since Fox is going to release Daniel Boone themselves in a complete series set, you could beg that same studio to release 12 O' Clock High, but they won't do it, or will they?
