Thread: TV Series that haven't been released to DVD but should be?

    Mel's comment about shows shot in Hawai`i reminded me of the one-season run of the remake of "Fantasy Island," starring Malcolm McDowell as a rather satanic Mr. Rourke. I'd like to have that on DVD.

    "Byrds of Paradise" - Steven Bochco series produced in Hawaii in the early 1990s that lasted only 13 episodes.
    I enjoyed this show and was sad that it went kaput.

    Heroes Season 1 for me... Mmmm...

    "Alas Smith & Jones" - British sketch comedy show with Mel Smith & Gryff Rhys-Jones. (Not to be confused with the Western "ALIAS Smith & Jones," which is coming out on DVD.)

    "The State" - sketch comedy show that ran a few seasons on MTV; potential DVD release has been held up for years due to negotiations over the rights.

    I realized why I only have 7 seasons of MASH. It's because after those first 7 seasons everything gets too serious and too political, sucks the fun out of it.

    I'm stunned anyone has all those old shows! Especially Captain Midnight. I remember that series as being a local L.A. show. Did it air nationally? Dick Webb who played C.M. was a family friend so I used to receive all the goodies offered on the show and, to this day, have his autographed publicity photo hanging on my office wall. Remember..."Zooooooom"?!!!

    Now that I've found a few eps of C.M. on DVD, I think I'll look for something similar for Lone Ranger, Cisco Kid and Pancho, I Love Lucy, Mickey Mouse Club, Tim McCoy Show, Ozzie & Harriet and Dragnet. I'm not concerned about collecting all the eps...just a sampling for memories sake and, as mentioned in a previous post, I want to show my grandsons the shows of my day!!!

    I did splurge and buy the set of Amos and Andy DVDs, tho'. Priceless! I also found the 2 episodes of Our Gang in which my dad appeared...from 1927!

    You are talking about TV series, right?

    Covington's Cross. ABC's TV series about a contemporary medieval family. Even featured two stars from the original Excalibur film.

    I'd love to get the Crayon Shinchan anime series with English subs on DVD, but KIKU-TV had to give up all the reels with their subtitles on them because Asahi TV in Japan bought the rights to the show. Major bummer.

    Thankfully Toei studies was nice enough to grant sales and DVD remastering rights to JNP/Generation Kikaida for the Kikaida and Kamen Rider V3 series. I only have the first 4 so far in the Kikaida DVD series. I'm gonna' buy the "Introduction of Hakaida" episode tonight, providing Shirokiya has it in stock.

    I'd love to get the "Great Chefs of the World" series, which used to air on the Discovery Channel. That's the one with the lady who narrated the show with step-by-step instructions. Fantastic production and great dishes.

    Back in the late '50s, we watched KAZEKOZO on the Japanese TV station.

    Hey, Border's is selling full-season DVDs of some series for only $19. I picked up the first season of "My Name Is Earl." Love that show. (My wife hates it.)

    How's about "Little People/The Brian Keith Show" that was shot here in Hawaii in the early '70s? If only for the sole purpose that my parents tell me I appeared in two episodes as a keiki and even had a speaking role in one of the shows. I vaguely remember seeing it when it aired, way before anyone had a home VCR.

    It's a pity that Jake and the Fatman hasn't made it to DVD yet. Strangely, the same fate has also befallen William Conrad's other series (Cannon, Nero Wolfe).

    Island Son (Richard Chamberlain) is a long shot as far as its chances for a DVD release. But with the unqualified success of Hawaii 5-0 and Magnum P.I. DVDs, maybe someone will take a shot with another show that has a lot of Hawaiian scenery, even if it was short-lived.

    Other series that are on my DVD wishlist.

    Route 66
    Night Gallery (seasons 2-3)
    Young Riders (seasons 2-3)
    Courtship of Eddie's Father (Bill Bixby)
    Ripley's Believe It Or Not (Jack Palance)

    I just received my sampler DVDs of DRAGNET, OZZIE AND HARRIET, PETTICOAT JUNCTION, SGT. PRESTON OF THE YUKON, and 50s and 60s WRESTLING. Most are B/W and a real "trip."

    I have most episodes of Byrds of Paradise, several Island Son, Cannon, Barnaby Jones, Ripley's Believe it or Not, all network airings from u-matic, beta, vhs, etc. I'll admit the Brian Keith Show is a tough one to find, they aired one on TV Land once that I might have, I used to be in contact with Brian's daughter sadly she committed suicide like her father.

    I'd like to see the Magician (Bill Bixby), Robert Urich's Vega$, Andy Griffith's Salvage One, Grizzly Adams on DVD amongst many others.

    I work in DVD production we're currently trying to get a few series released, we already have contracts for Mike Douglas, additional Captain and Tenille shows/specials, etc.
