    I think this show is really great, and especially great considering it had all the potential to be awful. Instead, we have a remarkable collection of Will Smith's talent, perhaps far more than we ever will in movies (simply from the sheer volume of episodes), and yet nowhere to be found on DVD. Don't you ever feel like every show but the one you're waiting for is getting released on DVD? Will&Grace, Frasier, Malcolm in the Middle, those are all nice, but no Fresh Prince, or Cosby, or Seinfeld, or NewsRadio, or Thundercats ... etc.
    Maybe Dave Lambert can tell us if there are requests for it on his site.

    Hmm, maybe there aren't as many fans as I thought. If you haven't seen it though, it's a good show. And Tatyana Ali grew up to be unbelievably sexy right on the show!

    I'm a fan and if it were made available in season sets I would consider a purchase depending on cost.

    I wonder, who should we contact? Warner Bros. distributed the show, but do they own it?

    First season is classic. It got SOOOO cheesy as Will got older though!

    I loved this series, but I've only seen the series finale once, when it originally aired. I can never seem to find it in re-runs. This is a must-buy for me. Did anyone listen to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince back then?

    Top 5% of requested series, with 95% of voters wanting season sets.

    And I'm a season set voter...


    ...and parents just don't understand. :wink:

    I would snatch every single season. The show is somewhat dated, but nostalgia is a powerful thing. And Will Smith rules. Chuck, do everyone a favor, next time, just stay the hell away from the thread.

    I wouldn't mind it. Despite the fact that if rumors are true, the reason why Avery left the original Turtles show mid season 1993 was to concentrate more on Fresh Prince, heh.

    Would love it -- in my top 10 most wanted, along with Diff'rent Strokes, Newsradio, Hey Arnold, et al. Would purchase every season set, easily.

    "I whistled for a cab
    And when it came near
    The license plate said FRESH
    And it had dice in the mirror"...

    It would be interesting to see again. Yes, Warner has the rights to it. They also have the rights to another Quincy Jones-produced TV show. That would be your favorite and mine, "Mad TV".

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    RELEASE BOTH! RELEASE BOTH!

    I'm actually DYING for this to be released on DVD with a TON of extras! Not only me, but a lot of my friends who grew up with this show like myself.

    Once I hear a release date for season one, I'm pre-ordering baby! [​IMG]

    Uncle Phil is the man!
