    ALF (UNCUT only)
    Alice (either season sets, or you can Kiss My Grits)
    Amen
    Benson
    The Carol Burnett Show (season sets)
    Designing Women (rumored for '06)
    The Facts of Life
    Family Ties
    The Flip Wilson Show (uncut)
    Gummi Bears
    Kate and Allie

    Sesame Street (complete shows; maybe in Blu-Ray)
    Silver Spoons
    St. Elsewhere

    The Wonderful World of Disney (original 1954-1983 run)
    Zorro (Walt Disney series)

    And other than releases, I'm waiting for:

    A) A firm committment to the complete releases of all series that are chosen for release (this means you, Sony!)

    B) A committment to present them uncut and restored whenever possible (this means you again, Sony!)

    C) A compromise between music licensors and studios to put a permanent end to this music replacement quagmire once and for all.

    This was apparently in the works for a Region 2 release earlier this year, but was cancelled. This might have something to do with restoration issues. It doesn't look like there's going to be any DVD release for this for the foreseeable future.

    I have a long list of old shows I'd buy in a heartbeat.
    And, I want the entire series not just a best of or a few samples.

    Adventures in Paradise
    77 Sunset Strip
    Surfside Six
    Hawaiian Eye
    Bourbon Street Beat
    Honey West
    Burkes Law
    Sea Hunt
    The Gallant Men
    Bat Masterson
    Yancy Derringer
    Cheyenne-the rest of the series
    Bronco
    Sugarfoot
    Mannix
    The Invaders
    The Rebel
    Spenser
    Petrocelli
    Laredo
    Peter Gunn-the rest of the series
    Jungle Jim
    Shotgun Slade
    Twelve O'clock High

    Maybe I should start by just buying Warner Bros. That would take care of a big chunk of them.

    I'm still surprised that The Drew Carey Show hasn't reached DVD yet, unless they're making a lot of money off the syndicated broadcast deals for all seven seasons.

    Amerika (mini-series)
    C.P.O. Sharkey
    China Beach (Yes I know the reasons)
    Commander-in-Chief
    Dirty Dozen: The Series
    E-Ring
    Ike (mini-series)
    Law & Order: Trial by Jury
    Picket Fences
    The Practice
    Scarecrow and Mrs. King
    Twelve O'Clock High
    Ultimate Force

    With signs of JAG on the way, that takes a big one off my list. I don't really expect Amerika or Ike as there doesn't seem to be a market for decades old miniseries. Commander-in-Chief and E-Ring will probably get announcements for next fall. I don't know if Ultimate Force will ever come as it's a UK show, already out in Region 2.
