    I'm probably the only person who remembers it, but I'd love to get a DVD set of the 1993 Fox series "Key West". Fisher Stevens as the lottery winner/wannabe Hemingway & Jennifer Tilly as the "hooker with a heart of gold". The show was like a tropical Northern Exposure. I could relate after living in South Florida for the 6 years prior to my move to Hawaii. Humor & drama mixed with eccentric characters and a unique setting. I spent many a lost weekend there in college, chasing girls, visiting with the real Capt. Tony, and chasing Jimmy Buffett's ghost all over Duval Street.

    Perhaps your thinking of LIFE GOES ON which I think aired on the same night during the same era as WONDER YEARS. Don Ho appeared on the episode of LIFE GOES ON.

    Post Re: TV Series You NEED to Get on DVD

    My list of must-haves on DVD:

    Lost (I have the first 2 seasons; I'm just waiting for Season 3)

    Firefly (gotta love Captain Tightpants)

    Buck Rogers (cheeseball, but I still love it)

    Father of the Pride (cute little DreamWorks animated show about the animals in Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden)

    Kindred: The Embraced (short-lived show based on the Vampire: The Masquerade RPG)

    Highlander: The Raven (spinoff of the Highlander TV show; it starred Elizabeth Ward Gracen)

    seaQuest DSV (my personal favorite)

    Smallville (although I wish Tom Welling would get rid of that Frodo hair)

    Angel

    V: The Complete Series

    Superboy

    War of the Worlds

    I ordered mine through Amazon.com, and it didn't take very long to get here.

    Volume one is scheduled for release October 23, 2007, with a likely release of volume two about 3-4 months after that, then the same timeline for volume three.

    Friends is the only series we have all the complete set of. Mash, All In The family, Gilmore Girls, America's Funniest Videos, oh goodness, there are so many I could dig. I have Oprah's 20Yr. Anniversary set and that's a keeper. Blue Collar Comedy, I want to own all of the redneck jokes and comedy routines that I can, though a few are just dumb, but that's okay cuz we can fast-forward when needed.

    Eddie Izzard! Yes and standup by several other comedians, though they aren't on just one tv series/set. I think I'll read this entire thread since I haven't, yet and see a good number that I've forgotten I liked a lot.

    One series that I keep wishing would get a DVD release is Room 222. I always thought that show not only had entertainment value, but it was educational as well. Presented some moral dilemmas that made young people think for themselves instead of telling them what to do. But year after year, that show has gotten the shaft. Not even a "Best Of" set has come out. Unbelievable!

    Meanwhile, garbage like Saved By The Bell is released in its entirety. Is there no justice in this world?

    Just got in PERRY MASON, Season One, Volumes 1 & 2 off e-Bay. Bought Perry Mason, Season Two, Volume 1, from Sam's Club. I actually have all 271 episodes taped off TBS from over 15 years ago.

    THE FUGITIVE, Season One, from Wal-Mart. Even though I have my own set of dubbed episodes from VHS to DVD-R (all 120 episodes). These were shown on cable between 1989-91.

    oh there's so many tv shows from long ago. I only have a few DVD sets... then my hubby and I got a netflix account and have been watching tv series that way.

    Currently in our queue:

    Star Trek Voyager Season 6 (been watching since Season 1).
    Hawaiian Five-0 Seasons 1 and 2
    Northern Exposure (never saw this; but hubby loves it -- so he wants to introduce me to it)

    We mix it up a little... not so back-to back; I enjoy watching series via netflix.

    If the following TV series that haven't been released on DVD, were to be released on DVD I would buy it:

    The Lieutenant
    Hawaiian Eye
    No Time for Sergeants

    The Hawaiian Eye series is owned by Warner Brothers. This is one show that has never had much success in syndication, due in large part to TV stations overwhelming preference for Hawaii Five-0, which was filmed in color, was actually shot on location in the islands, and had many more episodes.

    If you do a google search for "Hawaiian Eye DVD", you'll find websites offering bootleg DVD sets of this show, but the quality probably won't be great. There's been no word of an official DVD release of this show, or that of 77 Sunset Strip. If anything, I would imagine the latter show coming out first, assuming they ever come out at all.

    I have a handful of these episodes on tape:

    The Lieutenant, Hawaiian Eye. As I recall Jack Nicholson appeared in an episode of Hawaiian Eye.

    These on my must have list:

    1) Battlestar Galactica - Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonell. Great acting and a really powerful storyline. It's not so much a space show as it is a people-who- happen-to-be-in-space show.

    2) Dead Like Me - Mandy Patinkin, Jasmin Guy....great show!

    3) Carnivale - if you've never seen this show, you are missing out.

    4) Jericho - People wake up one day and there's a mushroom cloud on the horizon. What a better start to a show to get you hooked!

    I found season 2, and perhaps season 1, posted in the Usenet newsgroup alt.binaries.tv. The note with it says it's from a bootleg DVD.
