One Season Wonders

A lot of classic older series are finally becoming available on dvd. Some of my most fondly remembered tv series only lasted for one season however, and i wonder if they'll ever see the light of dvd. Here's a few examples:

Ellery Queen (Jim Hutton, David Wayne)
Man from Atlantis (Patrick Duffy pre-Dallas)
Tales of the Gold Monkey (Stephen Collins)
Hot L Baltimore (James Cromwell)

Anyone else have any one season wonders?

Salvage (Andy Griffith builds a spacecraft in a junkyard)
Probe (cool sci-fi show with Parker Stevenson)
Something Is Out There (Maryam D'Abo is an alien who teams up with an Earth cop)

I'd actually love a DVD release of Thieves with John Stamos and Melissa George. It was fun while it lasted and Stamos seemed incredibly enthusiastic about it when he appeared to promote it on The Tonight Show (mere days before it was cancelled), so he'd probably be good for commentaries or at least an interview, not to mention that he'd be easy to grab since I'm pretty sure he's still under contract with ABC, for Jake in Progress.

I've been hoping for a release of The Others. http://www.epguides.com/Others/guide.shtml

I never got to see most of the shows because of a schedule conflict (pre-TiVo days) and I ended up catching the final episode, which of course was a cliffhanger.

Boomtown (it actually went 1 season + 6 episodes of Season 2, but Season 2 is generally disregarded by fans of the show)

Woops! (1992)
Pretty good post apocalyptic sitcom that was years ahead of its time.

Emily's Reasons Why Not (2006)
I heard this was a pretty good show. It only lasted one season so I didn't get a chance to see it, but it had Heather Graham so it's probably worth seeing.

One season? It lasted one episode and was pretty universally regarded as terrible.

Now that Brisco County has been released I have a lot of hope for some of Fox's other great "one season wonders". I'd like to see "Bakersfield PD" the most, as well as "Get a Life" and the Fox George Carlin sitcom.

"Hardcore TV" was, what, 8 episodes? That had to be one season.

I would like to see "Scene of the Crime," a 1984 mystery show hosted by Orson Welles, on DVD.

HOT L BALTIMORE - You're not the only one... I'm at least the 3rd that remembers it. (IIRC, Conchatta Ferrell and Richard Masur were in it too)
SEARCH - was another forgotten goodie.
WIZARDS & WARRIORS - w/Jeff Conaway. Julia Duffy as the princess with a valley girl attitude.
LONGSTREET - w/James Franciscus. I really dug those 70's detective shows!
THE INVADERS - w/Roy Thinnes.
