I'm shocked at people having actually been interested in these shows to take the time and record with their VCR's.

But wouldn't the networks have an archive of their long forgotten short lived shows stashed somewhere in a warehouse like in Raiders Of The Lost Ark?

Just added a handful and will be adding alot more later this week. I'd say MOST of the sitcoms out there you can find a commercial at least, but episodes....not so much.

5 more series added to the list and made it a little easier on the eyes.
Feel free to share your own links to episodes or playlists of short-lived sitcoms. Ill add them when I can. Remember we are mostly looking at sitcoms that were only on for 2 seasons or less.

Angie has only 8 episodes I think not 9.

Also, there's one episode of 'Women in the House.'

Then, 'The Bad News Bears,' 'Breaking Away,' and 'My Sister Sam,' are all uploaded in full (or maybe 1 or 2 episodes missing).

Earlier this year I watched three or four episodes of Turnabout, but they sadly seem to have been removed. Now there's only a rather lame MST3K-wannabe treatment of the pilot still up.

How about Brothers and Sisters? It was a Animal House clone on NBC in 1979.

There are two episodes of "Broadside", the distaff "McHale's Navy" that lasted one season in the early 60s.
And if we're talking really short lived, here's an episode of the "Tammy Grimes Show" from 1966. Lasted only four episodes when that never happened.
