TV Shows I Own at Least One Complete Season of On DVD

by clydestuff | created - 30 May 2013 | updated - 16 Jun 2016 | Public

I've been collecting TV series for years. It's a rather expensive hobby sometimes, especially when you're trying to complete series that run for many years. These are all the shows I have at least one complete season on DVD. With this caveat: Some series have not had a complete season and may never get one for various reasons. These would include series like Ozzie and Harriet, My Living Doll, I'm Dicken's He's Fenster. In those cases if I have what is available they are listed. Absolutely none of these are bootleg. At this time this is still a work in progress.

1. All in the Family (1971–1979)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Drama

A working class man constantly squabbles with his family over the important issues of the day.

Stars: Carroll O'Connor, Jean Stapleton, Rob Reiner, Sally Struthers

Votes: 13,493

One of my complete series. But I do not own Archie Bunkers Place.

2. Growing Pains (1985–1992)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

The misadventures of a family with a home business father and a journalist mother.

Stars: Alan Thicke, Joanna Kerns, Kirk Cameron, Jeremy Miller

Votes: 13,034

I own four seasons of this show. This was actually a good series until Kirk Cameron made the producers clean up his character. That was the beginning of the end. I don't even want to get into Kirk Cameron's current homophobic lunacy. I'll probably add one more season, maybe two as I'd like to have the Leo Dicaprio Season.

3. Daktari (1966–1969)

60 min | Adventure, Family

Dr. Marsh Tracy was a veterinarian running an animal study center in Africa. Helping him were his daughter Paula, American Jack Dane and Mike, a local. Also living with the Tracys, and ... See full summary »

Stars: Marshall Thompson, Cheryl Miller, Judy the Chimpanzee, Clarence

Votes: 833

Derived from the theatrical film Clarence, The Cross-eyed Lion. I only own one season although two have been released. Any series released through Warner Archives is at a premium price and seldom on sale. I hope to be able to eventually acquire Season Two.

4. Hawaii Five-O (1968–1980)

TV-PG | 60 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

The investigations of Hawaii Five-0, an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police answerable only to the governor and headed by stalwart Steve McGarrett.

Stars: Jack Lord, James MacArthur, Kam Fong, Herman Wedemeyer

Votes: 5,449

I own eight seasons of this series. Would have bought the rest but when Netflix added it to streaming, decided to wait until I could catch a good sale. Will complete the set eventually.

5. Going My Way (1962–1963)

60 min | Drama, Family

Father O'Malley is sent to a parish in lower class New York City to assist old, crusty pastor Father Fitzgibbon. Mrs. Featherstone is the housekeeper in the rectory. When he arrives, Father... See full summary »

Stars: Gene Kelly, Leo G. Carroll, Dick York, Nydia Westman

Votes: 64

This 1962 series only ran One Season and stars Gene Kelley in the role of Father O'Malley and Leo G. Carroll as Father Fitzgibbon and Dick York before he married Samantha. A true rarity and one of those you never would have suspected as ever being given a DVD release. 30 Episodes released by Timeless Media (Now owned by Shout Factory.) Get it while you can.

6. Stoney Burke (1962–1963)

60 min | Drama, Sport, Western

Stoney Burke is a rodeo rider who wants to win the Golden Buckle, the award to the world's champion saddle bronco rider. He didn't win it, but he encountered a considerable amount of ... See full summary »

Stars: Jack Lord, Warren Oates, Robert Dowdell, Bill Hart

Votes: 137

Another one season show recently released by Shout/Timeless. Starring Jack Lord as a rodeo star before he turned in his saddle for a badge on Hawaii Five-O. This is one of those series that was critically acclaimed, yet was only given a one season run.

7. Bewitched (1964–1972)

TV-G | 25 min | Comedy, Family, Fantasy

A witch married to an ordinary man cannot resist using her magic powers to solve the problems her family faces.

Stars: Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York, Dick Sargent, Agnes Moorehead

Votes: 16,019

I own the first two seasons but hope to add a couple of more. After about four seasons though, I found the plots became rather repetitious and unimaginative. Mostly dealing with Darrin's client of the week that he almost gets fired by Larry Tate over. No offense to Dick Sergeant but he was never able to capture the goofiness that Dick York brought to the role of Darrin. He always seemed way too uptight.

8. Hazel (1961–1966)

30 min | Comedy

The misadventures of the Baxter family and their live-in maid, Hazel Burke.

Stars: Shirley Booth, Bobby Buntrock, Don DeFore, Whitney Blake

Votes: 1,320

Four of the Five Seasons have been released. I own all Four and am hoping to complete this set.

No word on if Season Five will be released. It may not be because of the drastic casting change. Whitney Blake (Dorothy Baxter) and Don DeFore (George Baxter) were given the ax by way of having their characters shipped off to Baghdad. Yeah, you read that right. Hazel (Shirley Booth) and Harold (Bobby Buntrock) moved in with George's Brother Steve (Ray Fulmer), Barbara (Lynn Borden) and their daughter Susie (Julia Benjamin). I don't remember the final season, so I'm very curious about it. Here's hoping.

9. Dr. Kildare (1961–1966)

60 min | Drama

The dramatic relationship between a young medical intern and his surgeon mentor.

Stars: Richard Chamberlain, Raymond Massey, Lee Kurty, Jean Inness

Votes: 659

Only the first season is available so far and I bought it as soon as I could. I've watched the first eight episodes but I'd forgotten how good some of these stories were, and despite the medical advances we've had, the drama never loses it's impact. Hoping to get the complete set as they become available. Lots and lots of great guest stars here as well. Now, where is Ben Casey?

10. Marcus Welby, M.D. (1969–1976)

TV-PG | 60 min | Drama

The show is about doctors Marcus Welby, a general practitioner and Steven Kiley, Welby's young assistant. The two try to treat people as individuals in an age of specialized medicine and ... See full summary »

Stars: Robert Young, James Brolin, Elena Verdugo, Pamela Hensley

Votes: 1,275

Only two seasons were released by Shout Factory. I was hoping for more but alas it doesn't look like it's happening. I'd forgotten how slowly paced this show was, but it's still decent. Robert Young as Welby, James Brolin (Mr. Barbara Streisand) as his associate Stephen Kiley.

11. Father Knows Best (1954–1960)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

The popular radio show comes to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy.

Stars: Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Billy Gray, Lauren Chapin

Votes: 1,768

When the first four seasons of this show were release for general retail sales, the prices on each season were very reasonable. Then Shout decided to make it an On Demand series only available from their web site. I just have a problem paying $40 for a season of shows that used to cost at the most $30. So I have yet to acquire the final two seasons but still might. This is one of those 50's series that I believe everybody should have at least one season of in their library.

12. Medical Center (1969–1976)

60 min | Drama

Located in the Los Angeles, California area, Medical Center was an otherwise unnamed hospital complex that was part of a large university campus. Dr. Paul Lochner (James Daly) was the chief... See full summary »

Stars: James Daly, Chad Everett, Chris Hutson, Virginia Hawkins

Votes: 583

Only two season have been released of this series as of yet and I purchased both of them. I have yet to find time to actually watch them as of yet but I do know the guest star in the first episode is O.J. Simpson. The first episode is not the pilot episode that had a different cast.

13. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964–1968)

50 min | Action, Adventure, Crime

The two top Agents of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) fight the enemies of peace, particularly the forces of T.H.R.U.S.H.

Stars: Robert Vaughn, David McCallum, Leo G. Carroll, John Herman Shaner

Votes: 4,574

When Time/Life released this I really wanted it but it was prohibitively expensive. Eventually I acquired the complete series through an Amazon sale. For NCIS fans, here's your chance to see a much younger David McCallum play spy. Really great sixties stuff.

14. M Squad (1957–1960)

Not Rated | 30 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller

The hard-hitting adventures of tough Lieutenant Frank Ballinger, a member of the Chicago Police Department's M Squad, an elite crime-fighting unit.

Stars: Lee Marvin, Paul Newlan, Gail Kobe, Morris Ankrum

Votes: 284

Another jewel from Timeless who miraculously was able to piece together the entire series, some episodes from collectors who still had much of the series on 16 Millimeter. Lee Marvin who would later go on to win an Academy Award for Cat Ballou, is what makes this show tick. I was really glad to get this.

15. Lost in Space (1965–1968)

TV-G | 60 min | Adventure, Comedy, Family

A space colony family struggles to survive when a spy/accidental stowaway throws their ship hopelessly off course.

Stars: Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Mark Goddard, Marta Kristen

Votes: 6,343

So about halfway through the first season, Jonathan Harris begins to steal the show as Dr. Smith. There are those who thought this was a good thing. Not me. I saw a lot of great potential shown in the first few episodes that was never fulfilled. It didn't help that during the first two seasons, they were so land bound on single planets they just as well have never left earth. Still, it's a series from my childhood that I felt I must have and I own the complete set.

16. Maude (1972–1978)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy

"All In The Family" spin-off centered around Edith's cousin, Maude Findlay, a liberal, independent woman living in Tuckahoe, NY.

Stars: Bea Arthur, Bill Macy, Conrad Bain, Rue McClanahan

Votes: 3,222

For whatever reason, only one season of Maude has been released on DVD and I bought it. I would like to own more but it's been so long since this was released I'm not counting on it.

17. Mod Squad (1968–1973)

TV-PG | 60 min | Action, Crime, Drama

Young people in trouble with the law (wealthy Pete stole a car; Linc arrested during Watts riots; Julie ran away from her San Francisco prostitute mother) can avoid jail by infiltrating the... See full summary »

Stars: Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III, Peggy Lipton, Tige Andrews

Votes: 1,674

Nothing symbolized the late sixties and early seventies any better than The Mod Squad. If you've seen the feature film, forget that and try to catch a few seasons of the original. Unfortunately, only two seasons have been released and I own them both. Will we see more? Hope so.

18. The Big Valley (1965–1969)

TV-PG | 60 min | Western

The Wild West adventures of the Barkley family in California's San Joaquin Valley.

Stars: Richard Long, Peter Breck, Lee Majors, Linda Evans

Votes: 2,415

What happened with the DVD release of this series really irritates me. Fox owns the rights and released Season One complete for about thirty bucks (much cheaper now). I think it sold well enough, but for some reason only greedy executives can understand they decided to release Season Two in Volumes and jacked up the price to $40 for half a season. Certainly people were hesitant to buy part of Season Two seeing as how they could not fathom why one whole season could be released a lot cheaper than a half season. Studio Executives who failed to see their own complicity in this, took the fact that people saw through their shenanigans as a sign that nobody wanted to buy it and have not released and further episodes. I do own the Season and a half but i did not buy the half season until it was finally marked way down.

19. The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–1977)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy

The lives and trials of a young single woman and her friends, both at work and at home.

Stars: Mary Tyler Moore, Edward Asner, Gavin MacLeod, Valerie Harper

Votes: 6,615

I'm glad to have this complete series in my library. Especially since it looked for a long long time like it was going to remain unfinished. But this was another series owned by Fox, and they made a mess of things again. However, the seasons were finally released and I suggest you pick this series up while you can.

20. The Sopranos (1999–2007)

TV-MA | 55 min | Crime, Drama

New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano deals with personal and professional issues in his home and business life that affect his mental state, leading him to seek professional psychiatric counseling.

Stars: James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco, Edie Falco, Michael Imperioli

Votes: 282,098

Probably one of the most popular series in pay cable History. Of course, I own the complete series because with this show, it's almost a necessity to own all of them or none at all. But it wasn't cheap to acquire and still isn't.

21. The Donna Reed Show (1958–1966)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Family

A loving mother and wife, but also a strong woman, deals with situations and problems a of a middle-class family in the late 1950s and the early 1960s

Stars: Donna Reed, Paul Petersen, Carl Betz, Shelley Fabares

Votes: 1,274

The great Donna Reed stars in one of the best family oriented sit-coms from the 50's and 60's. It ran for 8 seasons, and five seasons have been released. I own all five. The bad news is we may never see the final three seasons. The worst news is that Seasons one and two now appear to be out of print so if you don't have them and now want them, you'll have to pay the piper. My suggestion: Buy what you can afford of Seasons 3 to 5 and hope one and two are re-released. Just don't count on it.

22. Sex and the City (1998–2004)

TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

Four female New Yorkers gossip about their sex lives (or lack thereof) and find new ways to deal with being a woman in the 1990s.

Stars: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon

Votes: 102,276

Another HBO series. I actually bought this for my girlfriend because she loved the show. But she's never watched the DVD's so maybe I will since I didn't watch the series. Yeah, I know it's not meant for me.

23. The Shield (2002–2008)

TV-MA | 47 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller

Follows the lives and cases of a dirty Los Angeles Police Department cop and the unit under his command.

Stars: Michael Chiklis, Catherine Dent, Walton Goggins, Michael Jace

Votes: 69,595

My girlfriend was also a big fan of this series so I purchased it. But she hasn't watched the DVD's either. What I'm finding out about my girlfriend is that she seldom likes to revisit a TV series. Or maybe she just doesn't know how to operate the DVD player.

24. Medium (2005–2011)

TV-14 | 60 min | Crime, Drama, Fantasy

Suburban mom Allison DuBois attempts to balance family life with solving mysteries using her special gift. The dead send her visions of their deaths or other crimes while she sleeps.

Stars: Patricia Arquette, Miguel Sandoval, Jake Weber, Sofia Vassilieva

Votes: 25,138

The Girlfriend again. This time I had bought all but the last two seasons and probably will buy those when I can and watch the series myself. This was another one originally purchased for my girlfriend that I'll watch before she will. She refuses to watch the last season I guess because she thinks she won't like the ending. The same reason she wouldn't watch the last few episodes of Saving Grace.

25. House (2004–2012)

TV-14 | 44 min | Drama, Mystery

An antisocial maverick doctor who specializes in diagnostic medicine does whatever it takes to solve puzzling cases that come his way using his crack team of doctors and his wits.

Stars: Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard, Jesse Spencer

Votes: 400,742

We bought the first four seasons of House in a big Black Friday sale. From then on we ended up purchasing each season as they were released. I was just a casual fan of the show so I've gone back and watched some of the episodes I've missed. So yeah, we own the whole series.

26. Grey's Anatomy (2005– )

TV-14 | 41 min | Drama, Romance

A drama centered on the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors.

Stars: Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Justin Chambers

Votes: 235,848

The one show my girlfriend and I have watched since day one for the most part although the last few seasons I haven't watched as faithfully as I once did. Early on we began buying the seasons and currently own them all except the one that just finished. We will undoubtedly own that too. For some reason only one season has been released on blu-ray. That's a bummer.

27. Adventures of Superman (1952–1958)

TV-G | 30 min | Action, Adventure, Crime

The Man of Steel fights crime with help from his friends at the Daily Planet.

Stars: George Reeves, Noel Neill, John Hamilton, Bill Kennedy

Votes: 3,185

I own the whole series. It was reasonable enough. Yes, I know I'm revisiting my childhood. Part of the novelty is watching the color episodes. There weren't many TV shows filmed in color in those years so that makes this a novelty.

28. The Facts of Life (1979–1988)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Mrs. Edna Garrett, the Drummonds' former housekeeper, teaches to a group of girls of a boarding school how to tackle issues throughout teenage life and later adulthood.

Stars: Lisa Whelchel, Kim Fields, Mindy Cohn, Nancy McKeon

Votes: 5,605

It's hard to believe that this series ran for nine seasons. But it did. However, only five seasons have been released which is a shame. I'm not that enamored of the two final seasons but if they ever release the rest of the series I'll probably acquire them all.

29. Roseanne (1988–2018)

TV-PG | 21 min | Comedy, Drama

A revival of the popular 1990s sitcom "Roseanne", which centered on the everyday life of an American working-class family.

Stars: Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman

Votes: 38,701

One of the worst purchases I've ever made. I bought all nine seasons and it wasn't cheap. It's not one of the worst purchase because I don't like the series. I love it. But now you can buy the whole seriees for less than $60. You don't want to know what I paid. But I love this show. Still as funny now as it always was.

30. Doogie Howser, M.D. (1989–1993)

Not Rated | 30 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

A teenage genius deals with the usual problems of growing up, on top of being a licensed physician in a difficult residency program.

Stars: Neil Patrick Harris, Max Casella, Belinda Montgomery, Lawrence Pressman

Votes: 7,649

I only own the first season, but would like to acquire Seasons 2 and 3. I could care less if I acquire Season Four which I didn't care for at all. But I thought this show was pretty good and who knew that Neil Patrick Harris would have such staying power. Btw, I love How I Met Your Mother, but will wait until the series is completed to add it to my collection, hopefully with a boxed set.

31. Silver Spoons (1982–1987)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Ricky Stratton is a spoiled rich kid who lives the life that many kids dream of, but he still suffers from the problems that many teens do.

Stars: Ricky Schroder, Erin Gray, Joel Higgins, Franklyn Seales

Votes: 3,487

Only one season of this series has been released. I wouldn't mind adding a couple of more. The cast is what made this show work as well as it did. No kid could ever cry as well as Ricky Schroeder did. It's looking doubtful that we'll see anymore seasons though.

32. Moonlighting (1985–1989)

TV-PG | 60 min | Comedy, Drama, Mystery

The quirky cases of a former model and a smart aleck detective who manage a private detective agency.

Stars: Cybill Shepherd, Bruce Willis, Allyce Beasley, Curtis Armstrong

Votes: 17,574

For my money, the best series to come out of the 80's if you don't include some of the episodes from the final two seasons. Why this show hit such a downward slope is well known by now and easily researched. Regardless, I do own the entire series.

33. Kung Fu (1972–1975)

60 min | Adventure, Drama, Western

The adventures of a Shaolin Monk as he wanders the American West armed only with his skill in Kung Fu.

Stars: David Carradine, Radames Pera, Keye Luke, Philip Ahn

Votes: 5,046

I only remember a few episodes of this series. But I bought the complete set and hope to revisit it sooner rather than later. After the death of David Carradine, I just felt I should add it to my library.

34. The Danny Thomas Show (1953–1965)

30 min | Comedy, Family

Danny Williams, a successful nightclub singer, encounters a variety of difficult or amusing situations in trying to balance his career with his family: his outspoken wife Kathy, teenage ... See full summary »

Stars: Danny Thomas, Rusty Hamer, Marjorie Lord, Angela Cartwright

Votes: 823

Later to become The Danny Thomas Show, only two complete season of this series has been released. Those would be Seasons 5 and 6 and I own them both. Other public domain episodes are available but I wish the rest of the series was released in order. The series was funny then and funny now. But when it's given a disjointed release such as this was the chances of getting the whole series are slim to none.

35. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1952–1966)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Ozzie and Harriet Nelson raise their two sons Ricky and David. As the sons age, they experience teenage dating problems, marriage and careers.

Stars: Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Nelson, David Nelson, Ricky Nelson

Votes: 1,095

There are many many episodes of this series in the public domain. I think I have over a hundred of them and the quality runs hot and cold. A few editions have been put out by the Nelson Family. Getting the complete series may never happen as I've heard that when the series was sold for syndication, there was a lot of editing and cutting and those cuts and edits were simply tossed away. How much of this series really survived? We may never know.

36. I Dream of Jeannie (1965–1970)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family, Fantasy

A United States astronaut finds his life vastly complicated when he stumbles on to a bottle containing a female genie.

Stars: Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman, Bill Daily, Hayden Rorke

Votes: 12,491

I'm probably one of the few who preferred this to Bewitched. I thought the gags were much funnier and clever, and it wasn't saddled with a husband saying "no witchcraft" or in this case "no genie stuff." I thought the smartest thing the show did was to finally let Roger in on Tony's big secret. The entire cast was marvelous, from Larry Hagman to Barbara Eden to Bill Daly to Hayden Rourke to Emmaline Henry. I own the whole series but it was only five seasons which made it much easier to add to my collection.

37. My Living Doll (1964–1965)

30 min | Comedy, Sci-Fi

A psychiatrist is given care of Rhoda Miller "real name 'AF 709'", a lifelike sophisticated but naïve android, which eventually learns how human society works and begins showing "or at least emulating" rudimentary emotions.

Stars: Julie Newmar, Robert Cummings, Jack Mullaney, Doris Dowling

Votes: 179

Bob Cumming has a robot. The Robot is Julie Newmar. I made an exception here for series I have a complete season of. This was released as a partial volume last year, and it may be all we ever get to see of the series since it was released as "The Official Collection Volume 1." Have yet to watch these, but I do look forward to it.

38. Honey West (1965–1966)

Not Rated | 30 min | Action, Crime, Drama

After the death of her father, Honey West took over his high-tech private detective firm, assisted by rugged Sam Bolt and her pet ocelot Bruce.

Stars: Anne Francis, John Ericson, Bruce, Irene Hervey

Votes: 550

Anne Francis as a female detective. An under rated show from the sixties that certainly deserved to run more than one season. I guess some folks didn't take too kindly to a beautiful seductive woman running around Karate chopping and kicking the snot out of a bunch of criminals. The one season is available and one I picked up as soon as it was released.

39. Sanford and Son (1972–1977)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy

The misadventures of a cantankerous junk dealer and his frustrated son.

Stars: Redd Foxx, Demond Wilson, LaWanda Page, Don Bexley

Votes: 7,466

I picked up Sanford and Son when it was released as a specially priced set. I think I bought the entire series for about $30 dollars. Checking right now, it's still available at that price. The packaging is that much but for $30 I don't care. I wish more series would be released this way (some have) so they would be more affordable.

40. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003)

TV-14 | 44 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy

A young woman, destined to slay vampires, demons and other infernal creatures, deals with her life fighting evil, with the help of her friends.

Stars: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Head

Votes: 124,769

Buffy is one of my favorite series ever. There's really not much to say here except that if you've never seen it, take the time to stream it on either Amazon or Netflix. Some of the first season shows are iffy, but once the series finds it's footing, I guarantee you'll be hooked and rewatch many of these great episodes over and over again. Buffy includes some of the best episodes ever done for series television. It was Netflix that led me to this show, so when I had the chance to grab the series on DVD at a discount I snatched it up.

41. Angel (1999–2004)

TV-14 | 44 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy

The vampire Angel, cursed with a soul, moves to Los Angeles and aids people with supernatural-related problems while questing for his own redemption.

Stars: David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards

Votes: 62,600

I confess. I haven't watched a lot of Angel as of yet. I've seen all the Buffy crossover episodes though. But I bought the series just in case the streaming rights are ever pulled because I do need to find the time to watch all of the episodes.

42. The Love Boat (1977–1987)

TV-G | 60 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

The romantic and comic tales of the passengers and crew of the cruise ship, Pacific Princess.

Stars: Gavin MacLeod, Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange, Fred Grandy

Votes: 8,536

What I like about series like The Love Boat is it gives you a chance to see lots of actors, actresses, and entertainers that you seldom see any more, or who have passed away. That always will be the main attraction. The stories are often hit or miss, and sometimes miss very badly. But every once in a while you'll get a gem. Two seasons have been released. I own both.

43. Ironside (1967–1975)

TV-PG | 60 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

Wheelchair-bound detective Robert T. Ironside battles the bad guys on the streets of San Francisco.

Stars: Raymond Burr, Don Galloway, Don Mitchell, Barbara Anderson

Votes: 2,935

In case you didn't know, I guess they are going to come up with a rehashed version of Ironside in 2013. I don't know if anybody can top Raymond Burr, who I felt was much better in this role than in the Perry Mason role he labored in for so many years. I own three seasons, and consider myself lucky to have those. Four seasons have been released but Shout Factory has made acquiring this series ridiculously expensive. Try to find it used as I did for Season 3.

44. The Greatest American Hero (1981–1983)

TV-14 | 60 min | Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi

A teacher is asked to be a superhero using a special alien suit with powers he can barely understand or control.

Stars: William Katt, Connie Sellecca, Robert Culp, Michael Paré

Votes: 4,408

Really goofy series from the 80's. Great memorable theme song. Great relationship between Robert Culp and William Katt. Should have ran for more seasons but by the end I don't think the writers knew where they wanted to go with it. But I love it and own the complete series which can be had very reasonably.

45. Adam-12 (1968–1975)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama

Two regular police officers patrol Los Angeles.

Stars: Martin Milner, Kent McCord, Shaaron Claridge, William Boyett

Votes: 2,935

I thought Adam 12 was much better than Jack Webb's other series, Dragnet. A lot of it had to do with the chemistry of the two stars Martin Milner and Kent McCord. I own four of the seven seasons but it does stream on Netflix.

46. I'm Dickens, He's Fenster (1962–1963)

30 min | Comedy

7.5
