Default The End of TV on DVD?

After the recent announcements about The Wonder Years and Batman finally coming to dvd this year, I've been wondering if 2014 really is the last important year for TV Shows on DVD. Now when I talk about DVD I mean DVD, not Blu Ray. The Wonder Years and Batman were the two most requested unreleased shows on DVD at tvshowsondvd. That will make Salute Your Shorts the most requested unreleased show when both of those shows are released. I loved Salute Your Shorts when I was a kid and probably saw each episode 20 times, but it's not something I'd want to see again.


I guess what I'm trying to say is there really isn't much more to look forward to. There are a few shows I'd love to see come out on DVD, but they aren't very popular and it's very doubtful they'd ever be released.

It's GREAT to finally see The Wonder Years and Batman coming to DVD- but that doesn't mean there aren't other GREAT shows out there that still have yet to come to DVD.
I agree with most all of tlc38tlc38's list (give or take a few)- and there are still others I'd love to see on DVD too. I don't see any reason why TV shows on DVD will slow in popularity for releases as long as companies are making money on them.

Here are some favorites for me that I particularly want to see available on DVD (in all Regions, but particularly Region 1 for me):

Shows with No Season DVD release (in Region 1):
Automan
Manimal
The Amazing Spider-Man (1970s live action US show)
Spider-Man (1970s live action Japanese show- it did get a Japanese release, but it'd still be nice to see it out in the rest of the world too)
Spider-Man (1981 cartoon series)
Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends
The Incredible Hulk (1982 cartoon series)
Spider-Woman (1979 cartoon series)
The Powers of Matthew Star
Misfits of Science
Blacke Magic
The Wizard
Otherworld
The Phoenix
The Hardy Boys (1969-1971 cartoon series)
Valerie/Valerie's Family/The Hogan Family
Head of the Class
Muppets Tonight!
The Jim Henson Hour
Muppet Babies
Back to the Future (cartoon series)
The Highwayman
Strange Luck
Going Places
The Boys Are Back
ALF (cartoon series)
ALF Tales (cartoon series)
The Green Hornet



Shows to be completed on DVD:
The Muppet Show
Mork & Mindy
Happy Days (though it looks like this one is moving forward since it's finally getting Season 5 released)
Early Edition
Perfect Strangers
Diff'rent Strokes
Good Morning, Miss Bliss (I consider this part of the "Saved By The Bell" franchise and I think it should be released. I include these episodes as part of the SBTB family of shows and I would love to have this and the pilot episode for it to make my collection complete.)
Who's The Boss?
Welcome Back, Kotter
WKRP in Cincinatti
227
Darkwing Duck
Chip 'N' Dale: Rescue Rangers
DuckTales
Adventures of the Gummi Bears
The Facts of Life
The Jeffersons
Rhoda
Growing Pains
Silver Spoons
Webster
Small Wonder
My Two Dads
the rest of Sid & Marty Krofft's shows (ElectraWoman & DynaGirl particularly)
all the other Scooby-Doo series still not on DVD

and many others.........

I'm just hoping that there's more One and Two Season shows coming-out to DVD...NOT all of them were bad, and if they were...they're sooooo bad...that they're funny!

THE Cat (Robert Loggia)
The complete Johnny Carson tonight show monologues-all of them
Burns/Allen (not just the bootleg ones on sale)
Jack Benny (not just the bootleg ones)

BUT- what date is Batman coming out? We still all have no idea.

Good list, particularly T.H.E. Cat (which is at the very top of my own wish list) and Jack Benny.

My own remaining want list isn't all that long, and is mostly one-season and half-season wonders:

T.H.E. Cat (1 season)
WKRP in Cincinnati (4 seasons, with all/most of the original music restored)
Terriers (1 season)
Suspicion (1 season)
Way Out (half-season)
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (3 seasons, though they're out in Australia)
Panic (2 seasons)
Coronet Blue (half-season)
Dragnet (8 seasons, 1950s version, non-bootleg)
The Jack Benny Program (15 seasons, non-bootleg)
Amos and Andy (2 seasons)
The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1 season)
The Westerner (half-season)
Bus Stop (1 season)
Blue Light (half-season)
The Immortal (half-season)
Wichita Town (1 season)
Great Ghost Tales (1 season)
The Man Who Never Was (half-season)
Journey to the Unknown (half-season)
Decoy (1 season, non-bootleg)
Q.E.D. (half-season)
Shotgun Slade (2 seasons, non-bootleg)
Darkroom (half-season, wanted in R1, but available in Australia)
Diana (half-season)
Klondike/Acapulco (each a half-season)
Captain Nice (half-season)
World of Giants (half-season)
Ripley's Believe It or Not (4 seasons, 1980s version with Jack Palance)
The Dakotas (half-season)
Longstreet (half-season)
G.E. True (1 season, filmed Warner Bros version hosted by Jack Webb)
Space Giants (1 season)

Unfinished:

Maverick (1 season)
Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1 season)
One Step Beyond (2 seasons, non-bootleg)
Beany & Cecil (remaining cartoons)
Lupin the Third: Second Series (remaining episodes)
SCTV (the final season from Cinemax, plus the remaining early episodes)
Saturday Night Live (Season 10, with Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, etc)
Zatoichi, The Blind Swordsman (3 seasons)

Wanted remastered/restored on Blu-ray:

The Avengers (the two Emma Peel seasons)
The Outer Limits (the original 1960s version, 2 seasons)

As far as Batman, no, we don't have a date yet, but it's a pretty safe bet that it'll likely be out sometime in the Sept-Nov time frame, which allows Warner Bros to both hype it heavily beforehand at the San Diego ComiCon in July, and have it out for purchase in time for the Christmas/holiday shopping season.

and many others.........

While we're finally getting the top 2 requested shows for years, I think MacLeaper's lists are proof we've still got quite a ways to go before TV show releases on DVD can finally really slow down.

Of the totally unreleased shows on your list, Head Of The Class, Muppets Tonight!, Muppet Babies, and Hogan Family are the four I will buy and fully support once they're released. I think they'll all eventually see release. Maybe not on DVD but I expect iTunes releases for all those at the least. To add to your list, I'll buy and support Step By Step, The Wapner/Sheindlin years of The People's Court, will continue to support the Johnny Carson Vault releases-though I really would like to see big box sets. They've got a long journey ahead to fully get that out. I also want to see the same for Jay Leno's run. I'll also support the rest of The Muppet Show.

Of all the things you've listed, I think as far as the rest of this year goes, any things possible. Not too many releases have been announced for the second half of the year so I'd certainly expect to see at least some of your list materialize.

Unreleased
Edison Twins
Misfits of Science
Whiz Kids
Cartoons : Paw Paws / Monchichi / Biskitts / Ewoks


Unfinished

Whos The Boss

That'd be great because I'd be freaking out if anything on that list happens. Hopefully it will- we'll see.
I think some other folks' choices on here have just as good a chance too. You never know- I have seen more shows and movies come to DVD in recent years that I would never have expected to see before...and it does seem if the music rights for "The Wonder Years" and the rights issues with "Batman" can be worked out for DVD releases- most any of the other hold-up issues should be able to be resolved for these other shows.

The Norm Show and My Mother the Car are currently available on DVD. Titus seasons 1, 2, & 3 were available on DVD but are now OOP and can get pretty expensive for a new set. Also, season 1 of 227 is currently available.
