Okay, why is it that some of the crappiest stuff is readily available on DVD at Best Buy but so many great 80's tv shows are no where to be found? What are some shows that you want to see get a DVD release? My picks are as follows:

Silver Spoons
My Two Dads
Square Pegs
One Day At A Time
Dynasty Season 2 and forward
It's A Living
Mr. Belvedere

I barely remember Square Pegs. I did catch part of an episode on a channel a few months ago and it looked pretty good. I think it is definitely one that would take you back to the Valley Girl days of the 80s.

I don't think it did, Alex. I didn't think of it at the time when I was posting mine. I'd like to have Family Ties on DVD, too. I always enjoyed it.

I would also like to see BOSOM BUDDIES,the old Jason Bateman show IT'S YOUR MOVE and the GROWING PAINS spin-off JUST THE TEN OF US.

I also would like dvd box sets of stuff like TALES FROM THE CRYPT and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE.

SAPPHIRE AND STEEL. David Mccallum at his best.
Apparently it is on dvd but not in a nice cleaned up version that is any better than video.

Miami Vice Season 1 & 2 are out.
(We are waiting for 3)...they told me in Kmart the other day that once you see it on TV...which they just played a whole weekend of Miami Vice season 3...on the Sleuth channel...Kmart said usually it comes out to DVD within a few weeks after that. (I never knew that).

Some of the Shows I want are from the 70's too, but they need released.

The Bionic Woman
The Six Million Dollar Man
The Man from Atlantis
BJ and the Bear
The Powers of Matthew Star
Grizzly Adams
Family
Eight is Enough
Square Pegs
Double Trouble
Alice (they did release 6 episodes) But, they need to release an entire season

So I found a show I hadn't remembered about and I love when this happens!!!

Out of this World!

This is the only thread on our site I could find mentioning it.

Well on youtube there are tons of clips of the show. I love it and I love youtube!!

Does anyone know why shows like this get played on foreign tv? yet we'd never hear of it ever again here? I only know that from the very foreign subtitles on the episodes on Youtube???

The eternally underrated Father Dowling Mysteries is at the top of my list. It would also be nice to get the full run of Night Court with the definitive cast, rather than currently with only the experimental first season and a comparatively sparse Best Of set.

Cindi and Adventures posted back in 2006 probably before their wish lists were released. I'd like to see Amazing Stories Season 2 get a release.......

Here's the youtube link if anybody wants to watch the first two episodes. I used to love this show as a kid. Can't believe I of all people "nostalgia freak" forgot about it??

Additionally, it may be nice to one day see either Automan and/or Katts and Dog/Rin Tin Tin K9 Cop, both of which have gotten too little home exposure.

- Parker Lewis Can't Lose
- Alfred Hitch**** Presents ('80s version)
- Amazing Stories Season 2
- Tales from the Darkside Seasons 2-4
