    Definitely that short-lived 1983 ABC medical series-- I'd very likely see it through, just as I did w/Petrocelli! (It would be a bonus if Paramount's tall-peaked '82 Mtn. were there too!)

    I'll have a heart attack if Me and the Chimp ever comes out on DVD. To think Ted Bessell went from That Girl to that! Its cancellation enabled Kami Cotler to join the cast of The Waltons, and it merited a reference on Newhart as one of the only shows WPIV could afford to rerun (The Ropers and Bracken's World were the others).

    The Powers of Matthew Star I might actually buy; I can't say it had anything to do with my first name being the same as his, but it aired when my mom was pregnant with me. And Peter Barton was certainly easy on the eyes. But even the Coy and Vance season of The Dukes of Hazzard beat it in the ratings, as did Benson. It was also competing with another Paramount show, The New Odd Couple with Ron Glass and Demond Wilson in the fourth reboot after the play, the 1968 movie, and the 1970-1975 TV show.

    So, have you sent your list to VEI? Have you checked which shows have existing modern tape elements which can be used and aren't either on 2-inch tape or 35mm film?

    Neil,

    For those you mention, would have to be released directly by CBS through its MOD-DVD release program.

    Do you think that CBS will replace the Paramount logos of the time with the CBSTD logo of now? I certainly don't think so (after all, they did let the Blue Mtn. through on Best of The West [albeit w/the 1979-80 jingle]).

    The Immortal has period logos. I think. They aren't current, but aren't the same as the Sci-Fi channel prints, either. I get a little lost as to what the Paramount TV logo was used in 1970...

    Ben,

    I have to admit I haven't heard of many of the shows you listed and being 62, my TV watching days go way back. If my holy grail Ben Casey can't make the cut, i think most on your list unfortunately, will be in the same sinking boat.

    They also did not plaster the logos on The Young Lawyers DVD, except for the 1969 TV movie pilot.

    Unlike on VEI's DVD release of The Immortal, though, none of the Paramount TV logos on The Young Lawyers, meaning with the 1970 Lalo Schifrin music, have the additional Paramount copyright info stamp below the Gulf+Western byline (The Immortal only had that peculiar version of the logo on the fourth episode; the same version also appeared on several season 2 episodes of The Brady Bunch on DVD, and on all the 18 episodes [with the Schifrin music] on the original Time/Life DVD release of season 1 of the classic Odd Couple).
