One final post before I head off to bed...
I've been thinking a bit over the past few days of television shows that I've long been a fan of, some of which are still being shown, and others that aren't, and how many of them I wish I had boxed DVD full-series sets of (or at least, boxed full-season sets). So, here's a list of what comes to mind tonight, in no particular order!
Star Trek: The Original Series - Although this is out on DVD now, I'd love to see a "perfect set", which would feature both the original versions of the episodes as well as the remastered ones, plus all the interviews and stuff that Sci-Fi Channel showed with them when they were runnning a 90-minute format version, which included completely uncut episodes.
Star Trek: The Animated Series - Another one that is out now, I just haven't had the budget to buy it!
Time Tunnel - As formularized as this show was, I still have fond memories of it, and would love a complete series DVD set.
Land of the Giants - Probably my favorite Irwin Allen TV show. I honestly don't know if this or Time Tunnel are even available on DVD yet!
Planet of the Apes - Yes, the short-lived CBS series. I know this is available!
Return to the Planet of the Apes - This was a one-season Saturday AM animated series which I actually have a bootleg VHS tape of, but it'd be nice to see it in a higher quality format with some nice extras... Heck it would be nice to see this series revived and continued, because it was very cool, as each episode was a chapter in an ongoing saga!
The Twilight Zone - Do I even have to justify this choice?
Quantum Leap - Another of those shows that I started watching just before the final season... caught up on what was going on in reruns on USA! I know this is out.
Bewitched - I think some of the seasons have been released, but I'm not sure if they all were!
Mork and Mindy - I know that as the show progressed, it plain ran out of steam, but it'd be nice to revisit it once in a while!
Barney Miller - A show that I really became a fan of when it was in reruns... funny stuff!
The Prisoner - Actually, I used to have this... but sold the set I had when I was out of work.
Fantastic Four - The Hanna-Barbera version from the 1960s. Another show I've got on bootleg VHS, but is really deserving of a higher quality release.
The Beatles - The animated series was more or less cartoon music videos, but I still think it would be a cool DVD set to have!
The Monkees - One that's out, just not purchased!
OK, that's about all I have time for tonight... but I may well do this again sometime! Feel free to comment about what TV shows you wish you had on DVD, whether they're out on DVD already or not!
