What Do YOU Want With A Big Bow On It?

It seems like Gord and I both have gone blank today, without much to say here on the blog. So let's open up the floor to you guys. With the holiday gift-giving season coming up - no matter what you celebrate, there's probably a gift in it somewhere for you! - what TV-DVDs do you hope to find wrapped up in pretty paper?

I know that I'm hoping to find the Leave It To Beaver lunchbox set waiting for me, and I'd love for something Bizarre to make it's way down from Canada to me! ;)

As I'm sure you know, I could sit here all night and make out an extraordinarily long list of TV-DVDs I wouldn't mind having. Instead, let's open the floor to you...what one or two TV-DVDs do you want the most?

I've been holding out for Flinstones Season 4. Not to mention Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3. Gotta love the classic animation!

Knowing the way I put stuff on my list and a few things my mom told me she was getting, I'm probably going to get the following for Christmas:

Sports Night
Entourage Season 1
The Joe Schmo Show Season 1

Speaking of Joe Schmo, if Spike TV doesn't release Joe Schmo 2 on DVD I'm going to put somebody in a headlock.

I had Lost and Gilmore Girls season 4 on my list but those were low priority so I doubt I'll get them. I've got some movies on my list including Sky High and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and some other things, but the biggest factor in my small list of shows is that I've been buying everything I want most of the year already. My birthday was in November also so I already got Battlestar Galactica season 1, Arrested Development season 2, and Veronica Mars season 1.

I also used a birthday gift certificate to Amazon to preorder The Shield season 4, that'll get here in the week after Christmas.

My hints couldn't be any louder to my wife and daughter. I'd like to have Alias Season 4, which I purposely did not watch on network TV and then have the The Twilight Zone 1st Season. Those should keep me busy until NYPD Blue season 3 comes out!

Dear Santa:

Ahh, to wake up and run to the Christmas tree (like the big kid that I am) and hurridly tear open the paper and find the Sherwood Schwartz series, It's About Time: The Complete Episode would be the best Christmas ever! I repeat, EVER!!! Please Santa, don't disappoint me.
P.S. The Bugaloos would be a close second.

I didn't buy Gilmore Girls season 5 or 24 season 4 on their release dates, so that I could ask Santa for them. He better come through!

The Simpsons S7, The West Wing S1, Frasier S11, The Flintstomnes S2 and Cheers S1 are what I'm hoping for this year.

I'd also like to take this oppurtunity to wish you, Dave & Gord, a great holiday, and thank you both for another excellent year of the site - the only site I visit every single day (usually three or four times a day), and indeed the only site that seems to always have new updates each visit!

I am looking for Leave It To Beaver and The Andy Griffith Show (Season Three). I was hoping there would be a Dragnet 1968 (Season 2 of the Sixties Dragnet episodes), but the series has apparently been shelved by Universal after one season. You guys from might want to look into it - even season one has disappeared from the official Universal TV-on-DVD site So - no Dragnet under the tree this year, but I'll be happy with the others!

At December 23, 2005 12:47 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

There are several more than these but here are a few:
Family Guy:Volume 3
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: V4
Batman TAS: V4
Superman TAs: V2
Gilmore Girls: S5
Simpsons: S7

I hope Santa comes through on some of these.

I was lucky enough to already get 1 TVonDVD gift early... a good friend gave me..
- Superman: The Animated Series

A few I am hoping for..

- Alias: Season 4
Held of watching when aired waiting for the DVDs.

- Dukes of Hazzard: Season 5
would be less of a blow if I could get the Coy and Vance year for free! :p

- Seinfeld: Seasons 1 & 2
Not sure why I held off getting these for so long!

- 24: Season 2
I am so far behind collecting these! So many DVDs... So little money!!!

I'm all but certain I'll be receiving season 1 sets of Lost and House on Sunday. Others on my wishlist include Due South (Canadian or US releases - I don't care) and Red Dwarf series 6 & 7 (the latter only available in region 2/4 for a few more months).

I'm looking forward to getting Quantum Leap S2 on DVD. I know I've got it as I had to order it (poor mother still doesn't know how to shop online).

I love Quantum Leap!

Over the summer, Comcast had episodes of Starsky & Hutch available for free on demand. I became addicted to the show and watched the episodes multiple times until Comcast stopped showing them in October. I've asked for the three available seasons on DVD.

At December 23, 2005 7:32 AM, Anonymous Chuck said...

I've asked for:
- Millennium S2
- Northern Exposure S3
- 24 S2
- Star Trek: Deep Space Nine S4
- Cosmos

And if it weren't for the fact that SeaQuest DSV S1 is being released on December 26, that would be on my list too. That will probably end up being my late Christmas gift to myself!

At December 23, 2005 7:52 AM, Anonymous CoolB said...

I'd love to get the following:

The Pretender Season 2
Gargoyles Season 2, Volume 1
Quantum Leap Season 4

I haven't asked for anything because, well, since I still live with my parents and don't have to pay bills, I have more money than they do. BUT if I had asked, I would have asked for
these I really want:
seasons 3 & 4 of smallville
the 3 seasons of L&O: SVU that are out

These, I'd just like to have:
Veronica Mars
The OC
The Muppet Show
Seasons 4 & 5 of buffy (I bought 4 used on ebay and 1/2 of the discs are REALLY scratched)
Some Angel sets

Pretty much, I've bought all the DVDs I REALLY wanted this year. I bought Undeclared, smallville 1 & 2, everwood, Lois & Clark, Friends: The One With All 10 Seasons (the box that comes with this is NICE!), there's probably some more, but I can't remember at the moment! :D


At December 23, 2005 9:53 AM, Blogger Leri said...

What a difficult question!

It'd be great to find Angel season 4 and season 5.

I'd also like The O.C. season 1 and a bunch of others, but since I already have all Buffy seasons and Firefly, I'm not desperate for anything else.

Well I really really wanted the second and final season of SWAT but since it isn't out I asked for the first season of Emergency (something I never watched back in the day) and the first season of Tour of Duty.

At December 23, 2005 2:02 PM, Anonymous Julie said...

Gosh, where do I start...

Lost - Season 1
Into the West - Complete Series
Tru Calling - Seasons 1 and 2
The 4400 - Season 1

These others I'm still waiting for a release date...

Joan of Arcadia - Season 2
The 4400 - Season 2
FreakyLinks - Complete Series

...hey, a girl can dream;-)

Happy Holidays, all!

I am a vintage fan and would love to find these under the christmas tree:

Brady Bunch S4
Leave it to Beaver S1
Dick Van Dyke S1-S4
Mary Tyler Moore S1

But the best gift would be to find:
My Three Sons S1 - I wish they would come out.

I have all the I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith seasons thus far and truely enjoy them.

If Santa could get to work on
getting WKRP out on DVD, that'd be the best gift in the world. Somehow, I doubt it's going to happen, so there better be a copy of Law&Order season 4 under the tree with a bow.

No one buys me DVDs so I pretty much have already bought for myself everything I want. I guess I could ask for the 6th and 7th seasons of The Simpsons which I don't have yet as well as for the first season of Leave It To Beaver.

Of course, those are from what's actually available. Since we're fantasizing, why not go ahead and ask for stuff that's not out yet (and which may never be). After all, I hear Santa has a great DVD burning set-up. So I might ask for...

How The West Was Won
Head of the Class
When Things Were Rotten
Maverick (full season set)

Yes, I like westerns...

At December 23, 2005 10:00 PM, Blogger Jon said...

Mission Hill. It's one of my all time favorite shows. I also hope to see Santa drop off Desperate Housewives, and The Family Guy season 3.

Voyager Season 5

Dukes of Hazzard Season 5 and Cheers~

At December 24, 2005 4:44 PM, Blogger PJ said...

I would like "Beauty and the Beast" (the 80's fantasy romance with Linda Hamilton). Has anyone heard when or if it will be released?

At December 25, 2005 7:58 AM, Blogger Dave Lambert said...

Well...I got my Beaver lunch box! Thank you, sweetie! :)

At December 25, 2005 9:02 PM, Blogger The Thomas Montalto Blog said...

Got my Dukes of Hazzard season 5! Can't wait for 6 & 7!

Although it is past Christmas, I would like a simple Holiday card from Warner Bros. saying that they will forgo the "TV Favorites" and release COMPLETE and UNCUT season sets of Night Court.

At December 28, 2005 7:44 PM, Blogger kreizog said...

I want the second half of season one of BAA BAA BLACK SHEEP! Pappy, the guys and great shots of the Corsairs. It would make my Christmas, Santa...

It ticks me off to no end that the one show I am really interested in has not been released on DVD. All hail "The Tick" (1994)

At January 02, 2006 5:44 AM, Blogger J.D. said...

I ended up with Home Improvement S1, Challenge of the SuperFriends, and my dearly beloved Beverly Hillbillies Ultimate (in the sense that the season's not complete and episodes are missing/out of order) Collection. As it turns out, I gave more season sets away than I got, but that's the beauty and the spirit of Christmas :)

My birthday and anniversary both fall in December, so it's a windfall TV-DVD month for me! This year I bought or got with Xmas money:

Lost Season 1
Seinfeld Seasons 5&6
Everybody Loves Raymond Seasons 3&4
Brady Bunch Seasons 2&3
Little House on the Prairie Season 2
And Schoolhouse Rock!

Non-TV DVD's I got were The Wizard of Oz (3-Disc Edition), Citizen Kane, and Elf.

It was a VERY good year!

At January 03, 2006 1:43 PM, Blogger charmedfan01 said...

the two dvds i want the most are who's the boss? season 2, and charmed season 5.

I would LOVE to find Hart to Hart Season 2 under my tree!!!
Didn't happen this Christmas, but hopefully next!

(By the way, this is a huge hint for the Studio Big Wigs to release Season 2.)

Dynasty S2-9
Hart To Hart S2-5
Love Boat
