    Fans should let Dreamworks know that they are indeed interested. Sign up to the mailing list at the Freaks and Geeks website. E-mail the marketing department at:
    universalstudios&dreamworks@leemarketing.com
    This show needs to be put out on DVD!

    It is an EXTREMELY popular item at TVShowsOnDVD.com...in the Top 50 most-wanted shows! Owner Gord Lacey would have to agree to post exact stats, but it's rather high on the list!

    I agree, I loved that show when it was on TV, I'd definitely get the set on DVD . . . just put myself on that list too.

    I'd love to buy this show on DVD, as well as "Undeclared". It always bothered me that these two gems didn't even get a chance on TV when shows like "Family Guy" were given chance after chance in spite of bad reviews and poor ratings.

    Hey F&G faithful. A new mailing_list is available at the Freaks and Geeks website. As you may know, the music rights are pretty expensive for F&G but Dreamworks will buy the music rights as long as there is interest. Sign up and show Dreamworks that Freaks and Geeks will be a success. Let's make this the year we get Freaks and Geeks on DVD!

    There are only 113 signatures as yet. Seems like it should be more.

    Is there still a MSCL forum? This should be posted there, I think a lot of MSCL fans would be interested in this....or they should be!

    I signed up, of course.

    I really don't think we need to sign another petition to let them know people want to buy this on DVD. I know I've signed up at a bunch of places already, and well more than 120 people have voted for the show at TVShowsonDVD.com.

    They *must* know the demand is there...now it's up to them to meet that demand and hopefully be able to provide the episodes in their original form, music intact.

    Jason Rosenfeld and I spoke to Judd a few weeks ago and suggested he put the petition up. I also suggested that he include a survey for people to fill out to collect more information on what people want. Maybe he'll do that later.

    I've never seen the show but I've heard a whole lot about it. I hope it makes it to DVD so I can see what everyone is talking about.

    I'm glad to see that Apatow and co are still pushing this show, and good for them.

    I signed the petition (#169) and added a link into my signature. If you have room, I suggest doing it as well.
