Certainly agree with Twin Peaks Season 2, I'm a huge fan but upset they haven't released season 2 because of the rights dispute.
 
Some of the following material is fictional....

I'd like Columbo Widescreen remastered movies. Crikey there are 55 episodes, never knew that.

Kill Bill the full movie.

Matrix 4

King Kong 16:9

Laurel And Hardy remade from digital images.

Spiderman 3

Hulk 2

Iron Man

Casino Royale

Randal And Hopkirk The Movie

Lost In Space 2

Colditz - the original BBC TV series.

Why this excellent series has never been released on DVD when all other shows of the same vein (Tenko, Danger UXB, Secret Army etc etc) have been done remains a mystery.

Hi,

West - Time Gentlemen, Please (Series 1) is already out on UK Region 2 DVD. I presume you also want the Christmas Specials and all of Series 2 released as well, to complete this very, very funny series?)

My requests would have to include:

Total Recall 2070 (on any region, but must be in 16:9 and the original uncut Cable broadcast versions, not the sanitised syndicate TV prints)

War Of The Worlds (Season 1 of the 1987/1988 US cable-TV show, but with extras, including info on what happened to all the cast of the show, preferably on Region 2)

The Tripods (the BBC's classic TV show from the mid-1980's, on any region)

Dick Spanner PI (Gerry Anderson puppet classic, made-up of just two 55-minute episodes, from around 1987)

The Amazing Cities Of Gold (Japanese anime, made in Europe, and with that superb main title theme tune that almost everone schoolkid of the mid-1980's will instantly recognise)

Star Fleet (aka X-Bomber - any release, even if the picture and audio aren't perfect, but I must have this on legitimate DVD NOW!!!!)

I'm sure there's loads more, but these will do for a start! :)

... The Tripods (the BBC's classic TV show from the mid-1980's, on any region)
Possibly with some conclusion tacked on, perhaps animated like the recent Dr Who - The Invasion. Otherwise it would be quite disappointing, seeing as it was only the first two parts of the trilogy. A very cheap, wobbly set, low production value show as I recall, initially screened when Doctor Who was on a 1 year hiatus if I'm not mistaken. I don't believe The Tripods is generally regarded as a classic though ;); especially as it was cancelled 2/3 of the way through.

There was a good documentary about The Tripods on BBC4 last night. I remembered watching it when it was first aired, but couldn't really remember that much about it. After watching last night I don't think I'd be tempted by a DVD version though.

IIRC the programme was called BBC Cult or something like that, I'm sure it will be repeated.

Unfortunately, the only DVD available of TGP is not the entire first series. It only contains the first six episodes of series 1. It appears it was meant to be released in several parts, but there's been no sign of a second DVD since the first one several months ago. Wouldn't be surprised if no more were released. Perhaps it didn't sell well enough. Why on earth they didn't release it as a complete series boxset is beyond me. Brilliant series.

The first series has already been released

Tripods
Indeed - the second season though is in tangled in rights arguments though - disappointing as the journey into the Tripod city was fairly amazing.

Possibly with some conclusion tacked on, perhaps animated like the recent Dr Who - The Invasion. Otherwise it would be quite disappointing, seeing as it was only the first two parts of the trilogy.
The TV series did conclude itself though - the twelth episode of the second series left little doubt what had happened to the remains of the free humans. They (spoiler) were blasted into oblivion by a large force of Tripods that had passed the returning 'heroes' on their way back to the White Mountains. A different ending from the books of course - but a conclusion none-the-less.

There wasn't such an unambiguous conclusion as I clearly recall; it was clear that the story would continue, and I remember the BBC1 continuity announcer saying that it would be back for a new series. The two series ONLY followed the first two books of the trilogy (The White Mountains; The City of Gold and Lead). A third and final series was planned as an adaptation of the final book of the trilogy, The Pool of Fire, but was cancelled before production.

Well I've got it here on DVD-R - and I can assure you it ends with the camp smoking - that was certainly not in the books...
But it was still intended as a cliffhanger of sorts and not the absolute end of the series.

Even though you view it as a conclusion, it was never meant to be. I certainly feel its a ridiculous end to the story if it was intended to be that way (which according to the BBC and Tripods production team at the time it certainly wasn't - surely you'll agree that they always intended to make a third and final series for the following year ;))

Fair enough - I had always assumed that the ending had been done the way it had because the third series had been binned by that time - if it wasn't then I suppose it was a cliffhanger of sorts...

:mad: Damn I feel seen off now - I want the end!
