    It's probably about the only medical series that I'd buy.

    no word yet though.

    The Chicago Hope fanbase doesn't seem to be very big. I loved the series (especially the early seasons with Mandy Patinkin), but don't hold out much hope for DVD sets. [​IMG] Hope I'm proved wrong.
    BTW, welcome to the forum, Luc!

    I remember the episode "Quarentine" from the first season written by the great David E Kelley
    Among his many great scripts for all his shows that is one his all time best [​IMG]

    Chicago Hope is definitely a series I would buy or at least the first season when it was the best. That Quarantine episode was by far the best episode

    I just watched my old import Chicago Hope LD set. I've never really seen a complete episode of the show before. Quarantine, was indeed a great episode. Hopefully some one will release this somewhere on DVD.

    Any news about Chicago Hope on DVD?? It`s been almost 2 years since my last note on this thread.

    I just hope we will hear some good and positive news pretty soon.

    Surely a series like this, would sell good on the strength of its fine actors alone, or what ?

    Loved this show and would buy it in an instant. It's on my most-wanted list, along with other Kelley shows.

    Chicago Hope premiered opposite ER's premier and was forever compared to that show. CH never achieved the same amount of ratings success of ER, even after it moved to Mondays.

    Strange, because it's a much better show than the overrated "E.R.".

    I think Chicago Hope was just less dull, than E.R. I have no idea why it wasn't more successful.

    Well, it ran for six seasons, so it must've been somewhat successful.

    I would also like to see this as i am a big medical show person, i think i would like it and wouldn't compare it to ER or Grey's Anatomy (two of my Faves) I would really like to see this and St. Elsewhere (along with other 80's less hopefuls Thirtysomething & LA LAW) on dvd ...

    and if this is from DEK I definately want to see it as it will be the only show (besides picket fences) that i haven't seen of his....

    Does anyone know why this show hasn't been released??? I'm sure music rights wouldn't be a problem with it.

    I loved this show and would love to see it on DVD. Especially with some great actors like Adam Arkin (who I recently saw film a pilot Who Get's the Parents, whilst on holiday in LA), Hector Elizondo, Mark Harmon, Christine Lahti, Peter Berg, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Criminal Minds stars Thomas Gibson and Mandy Patinkin, surprised it not been released

    Count me among those that would like to see this series released on DVD.

    The Mandy Patinkin seasons were the strongest, just because of the presence that Jeffery Geiger brought to the screen.

    Also loved the episodes that featured James Garner as the takover artist that bought the hospital.

    But I would definately purchase the show on DVD.

    I wonder if part of the reason we haven't seen it yet is that it's been off the air a while and out of sight, out of mind. This is actually one of two David E. Kelly shows that I'd want to see on DVD, LA Law being the other. Hope we do see it someday as it's darn fun at times.
