Canned FOX shows on DVD?

What with Firefly being released by Twentieth Century Fox and Stephen Cannell indicating a desire to release Profit, can anybody think of other good shows that FOX unceremoniously canned which should be released on DVD?

The ones I'd like to see are the following:

The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Strange Luck
Danger Theatre
The Lone Gunmen
Alien Nation
Booker

Are there other gems from the vaults of FOX network that deserve a second look on DVD?

I would like to see Fastlane on DVD since they cancelled the show with a cliff hanger. I hope that FOX would do that. Then again, it's all wishful thinking.

I had heard a rumor that Brisco County was in the works. I just hope that Bill Campbell will be available to maybe do commentary on some episodes.

Why would "The Rocketeer" comment on "Brisco County, Jr."?

And, what about "VR5"?

It wouldn't surprise me if Lone Gunmen gets released after the final season of X-Files is released.

Wouldn't surprise me if Brisco County and Alien Nation come out eventually too. Never heard of Booker, Strange Luck, or Danger Theater.

Some of my favorites that Fox canned very quickly:

Andy Richter Controls the Universe
Partners
Class of '96
Fastlane
Undeclared (One of my favorite shows ever)
Herman's Head (although this one did last for 3-4 years)
Parker Lewis Can't Lose (ditto)
Ned and Stacey

Fox has canned SO MANY others after 1 or 1 1/2 seasons (Some of these really stunk imo, but they do have their followings):
VR5
Millenium
That 80's Show
The Tick
Greg the Bunny
The $treet (mmm, Jennifer Connelly)
Time of Your Life (mmm, Jennifer Love Hewitt)
Normal, Ohio (anyone remember this terrible John Goodman show?)
Woops!
Action
Freakylinks
Space: Above and Beyond

or how about the TWO Married With Children spinoffs that starred Matt LeBlanc?

I'm sure theres others I can't think of at the moment...

Who remembers Eerie, Indiana? I used to watch it when it was on and remember enjoying it quite a bit although that was quite a while ago and I was alot younger back then.

Well, it seems as if this was on NBC although for some reason I remember it being on FOX.

There's another old Fox show I can't rememnber the name of... I think it used to be on Sundays, like at 7 or 8, I think before even Parker Lewis Can't Lose was on. It was about some kind of teenager secret agent or something. The only plot I remember had something to do with he needed to get back a vinyl record (LP) that contained something that the bad guy was going to use to take over the world (or something). Does this show sound familar to anyone?

Speaking of Parker Lewis Can't Lose, who remembers the very short lived

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

tv show? It had a young Jennifer Aniston as Ferris's sister...

Would love to see the entire run of "The Chevy Chase Show" and "The Magic Hour" on DVD.

Those were the two best shows Fox ever produced.
