Just wondering what other people are buying... mostly to get an idea of some stuff out there that I don't have. I have at least one season of the following: MASH, Greatest American Hero, FAME, Barney Miller, Three's Company, Hill Street Blues, Different Strokes, All In The Family, Buck Rogers (Complete Series), Planet Of The Apes, Cheers, Wonder Woman, Who's The Boss, Silver Spoons...and...ummmm....Little House On The Prarie (hey...it was season 2 in a discount bin for ONE DOLLAR...what would you have done?) I love love love buying these old TV shows...a bit overwhelming and expensive, as it all seemed to come at once. What you guys got? And what are some essentials I am missing?

I'm slowly trying to get all my favorite shows like Gilligan's Island, Facts of Life, A-Team, Family Ties, Wings, 21 Jump Street, Married with Children, Laveren and Shirley, Happy Days, Saved by the Bell, Beverly Hills 90120, Miami Vice, Punky Brewster, the Incredible Hulk, Square pegs, but there is still tons of tv shows I want. Stuff I want is Magnum PI, the Fall Guy, CHIPS, and I wish they would go beyond season 1 of Growing Pains. There's some box sets I unfortunately had to buy new and full price, but I did get some amazing deals on used stuff.

I have the Six Million Dollar Man on copies from off TV.

The Bionic Woman was released in Europe, so my friend bought me Seasons 1 and 2, and sent me a European DVD player to watch them on.

I have all the Incredible Hulk episodes. I got them from Columbia House, before they were ever released on to DVD. I paid $19.95 for 2 episodes a piece on VHS. So, I probably spent hundreds of dollars on them, before they released it on DVD. I did the same thing with Wonder Woman, and Emergency.

It should! A swiss army knife would be good too.
