The Five: Great shows you'll never, ever, ever see on DVD

Tom BergeronIt seems that everything is being released on DVD these days. Not just shows from the 50s and short-lived shows like The Adventures of Brisco County and Profit and many others. But there are many shows you'll never see on TV, because they're too obscure, don't have enough fan base, wouldn't be worth it financially, and/or just don't have any "buzz" to make it worth releasing by the studio. Now, I've been surprised before. I'm still shocked that Riptide made it to DVD. But I'm pretty confident we won't see the five shows below on DVD. Which is a shame, because they're five of my favorites.

In fact, if any of these shows are released on DVD (whole seasons, not an odd episode thrown on another DVD), I'll run naked through Central Park while eating a chicken salad sandwich and singing the theme song from Fame.

Short-Lived Shows: Raven

With the help of his ex-Special Forces buddy Herman "Ski" Jablonski, he tracks the son to Hawaii. While looking for him, he helps people who are in trouble, often using martial arts.

OK, I know that description might sound a little lame, but let me describe things a little bit more.
