Name a T.V. Program or Film That Should Be Released to DVD
Okay, here's a top for discussion...name one television program or film that should get a first time release to DVD, even if it is just an original aspect ratio transfer and trailer.

For me, as far as television goes, I'd like to see Fox release Space Above & Beyond and for Paramount to do the same for at least the first season of War of The Worlds.

For films, I'd like to see Rad and King Kong ('33), but I'm crossing my fingers that Warner pulls this one out just in time for Mr. Jackson's Xmas '05 opus.

Talk amongst yourselves...

Bedazzled - the Peter Cook and Dudley Moore version, not the Liz Hurl one.

The best (animated) tv show ever is Rocko's Modern Life.  It was amusing for kids, and there were numerous film and tv refrences for the older people.

The Wonder Years. I'm tempted to go ahead and buy the bootleg already, but I'm  trying to hold out for an official release.

I'd also like to see the X-Men animated series on dvd. I know they have some dvds already, but I'm talking about releasing the all the seasons on dvd.

I also would love to see the cartoon releases of Masters of the Universe. It pisses me off that the UK has every volume out and we get nothing. Anywho, I would also like to add Pinky & The Brian, Tiny Toons and Freakazoid and finally Friday the 13th the series.

I guess dreams do come true. I just hope The Wonder Years isn't stuck in pre-production or legal battles forever. The people demand The Wonder Years damnit.

I want Lois and Clark on DVD. I am probably the only one, but I enjoyed the show. And to think of the features they could do...

For TV shows I'm still hanging out for a DVD set of "Ed". This show is awesome, and all four seasons on DVD would make my collection complete.

As for films, you can't go past Bladerunner in special edition form, but the rights holder isn't budging. Time to give him a bit of a shove, readers...

There seems to be a lot of call for a Rocko DVD collection. Maybe Paramount should listen. This isn't the only thread of its kind I've read this on.

I suspect that we'll be hearing the official announcement for a first season set from Warner Home Video in the near future...

You guys got that over there? I thought it was so low budget and everything that it was local only. The only one I only sorta remember had DeForest Kelley in it. I kept thinking it was weird he wasnt a starfleet doctor...hehehe

We've had He-Man for ages, but it stopped at volume five for some reason (presumably because sales weren't good enough).

The classic He-Ma was great, but the more recent version that was canceled on Cartoon Network was by far, much better in terms of action.  Whatever the case, I plan on purchasing both when they are released on DVD.

As for some shows I'd like to see on DVD, I go with:

Third Watch
Bionic Six
M.A.S.K
L.A. Law
Werewolf (Fox Series)
Seaquest DSV

Just to name a few.
