The Fall Guy and Forever Knight would be good (Though they might be out..haven't looked in awhile) and Wizards and Warriors...does anyone remember that? It was really cheesy, but I liked it.

This is very true. Singer's body is much more buff, though.

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

WOW, based on my thread here from 2006, I guess some prayers are actually answered...

Silver Spoons-Season 1 got a release but didn't sell well so I guess it's back to obscurity...we'll never get to revisit the episode where Whitney Houston gives the Rickster a kiss!

My Two Dads-Seasons 1 & 2 have been released.

Square Pegs got an AWESOME DVD release complete with great new interviews with the entire cast, except for Merritt Butrick, a/k/a Johnny Slash, who passed away in 1989 .

One Day At A Time-Season 1 but no word on future releases...

Dynasty-Good progress here, Seasons 1-4 have been released in all their fabulousness!

It's A Living-Nothing, not even a blip about it...I think this one's a goner .

Mr. Belvedere-Seasons 1-3 have been released! Yay!!!

Not too bad!! Now if we could just get Season 3 of Too Close For Comfort...

Not that I'm always shilling for this, but there is hope for some of these shows through "burn to order" websites. Warner Brothers started the movement with the Warner Archive (which has the complete second season of "Falcon Crest" for you, Ms. Mancini). I think that Columbia and Fox either have or are gearing up the same thing. In this tight economy, I suspect that this will eventually be the distribution norm for all back catalog titles.

And I will add to the number of folks who want to see "Midnight Caller" released on DVD. That show was truly excellent and memorable, so stylish and thoughtful with wonderful music, not your typical police show or even one-hour drama. The pilot is one of the best episodes of any TV series ever (some brilliant visuals set to the music of
Sade), and most of the other episodes are great too. Gary Cole just shines in the lead, but I suspect that because the show is so melancholy and downbeat ("too intelligent," perhaps?) that it has fallen through the cracks.
