    My choices would be - 1. Land of the Giants. 2. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. 3. Planet of the Apes 4. Mission Impossible 5. The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    The Lost in Space and Batman blu-rays were wonderful.

    The holy grail for me is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I remain hopeful it will happen someday.

    I'd also like to see Babylon 5, which JMS says could be done rather inexpensively, but he says Warner has no interest in doing the show.

    I would love blu-rays of Get Smart (which looked so good on DVD), The Fugitive, The Man from UNCLE. I'd like to see them do more seasons of The Avengers too.

    Hi Sam. I too would like to see Star Trek Deep Space 9 on Blu-ray. The same with Babylon 5. I thought that I read somewhere it would be too expensive. It is nice to know that that is not the case. I agree about the Fugitive. All The Avengers episodes from 4,5 and 6 have been released on bluray in the UK. I would also like to see what remains of season 1 and seasons 2 and 3 released on bluray. However these episodes being made on videotape might prove to be more problematic.

    The Waltons and The Bob Newhart Show could both use upgrades on blu ray. Also The Adventures Of Superman.

    The Time Tunnel *has* a BR release. It's a region free release that looks excellent and has great sound.

    Amazon (MP vendors with several at almost half the price of DD) & Deepdiscount. Amazon has it incorrectly listed as R2 - it's region free and works just fine on US BR players.

    I’d love to see I Love Lucy completed on Blu, including full length versions of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour shows. Id happily settle for just the episodes without commercials.

    The missing Treks, of course.

    Just started Have Gun Will Travel on DVD and that seems like it could shine with its black and white location photography.

    M*A*S*H, original 4x3, option to remove laugh track - basically just upgrade the DVDs.

    Disneyland episodes from when Walt was the on-air host.

    I don’t think we’re getting any but Deep Space Nine and Voyager would be the biggest quality leaps. And Lucy would allow me to complete my collection of absolute favorite classic shows in HD (the rest of my big ones are out, with those titles being Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Honeymooners and Dick Van Dyke Show).

    Columbo, Emergency and The Fugitive (and these should all have existing HD masters).

    Route 66 - not sure about the condition of original elements.

    The rest of I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show (at least through the B/W years).

    The good news is that several of those have already happened, ClassicTVMan.

    Two choices I feel are realistic for me would be Combat and Emergency. The former was always expensive and used lackluster transfers from the 1980's. And Emergency! at times could look pretty bad on DVD and was later beautifully remastered, but only in time for the last two releases.

    I'd sure love to see the rest of I Love Lucy get the treatment that season 1 and 2 got, but I sadly don't think there's a chance. But Emergency! in particular is one I'm surprised hasn't happened from a company like Mill Creek already.

    Maybe Universal isn't willing to license it out yet.

    This is out on blu-ray with lots of extras and it looks terrific.

    As far as a re-release goes, I would only like Mission Impossible done on Blu-Ray. While others being re-released would be nice, I have no interest in double dipping (never got MI on DVD).

    The only thing really left for me on my want list is Dream On. They only released two seasons on DVD, so I guess it is a re-release of sorts. Would be great on blu-ray but as far as that goes, I guess I can dream on.
