    A LOT of people feel strongly that this title "must" be one of the releases Warner plans for their year-long celebration of 50 years of Warner TV, and that it has to come to DVD this year.

    The honest-to-God truth is that the studio hasn't telegraphed any moves about this show whatsoever. Kotter may indeed be coming out before the end of the year. If it is, it's a very well-kept secret!

    I had no idea it was still so popular on the dvd wishlist. I have not been here for a while and I have'nt seen any news items about it on tvsondvd.com
    Kotter and Happy Days were my very favorites as a kid, Especially Happy Days!
    Don't worry Dave, I always take these things with a grain of salt. like your He-Man item. It's great news, but as you say "it's still early, anything can happen between now and then." [​IMG] I always wait until I see that link to amazon to actually dance around my desk. [​IMG]

    That's where I think I'll stop buying. Beau just gets on my nerves.
    But the seasons up to that would be must buys for me!
    I would'nt even mind a "The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons" bundle.
    And we need some new Kotter merchandise too!
    Like "Up your nose with a rubber hose" T-shirts! [​IMG]
    I know what you mean about the "bionic" movie. I'll just leave it to 6 years old kids and the two people who actually like the Charlie's Angels movies and I'll stay home and watch the SMDM & Bionic Woman dvd's. [​IMG]
    Beats me why everyone of these rip-off movies have to one big joke.
    Seeing Steve, or his reincarnation taking out terrorist might've been really cool!
    But no we get a spoof. Oh well they lost my 6 bucks.

    The way I heard it, Gabe Kaplan was unhappy that the writing staff was changed in the 4th season and the new writers didn't understand what the show was about, so he refused to appear in most of the episodes, resulting in Mrs. Kotter suddenly becoming a teacher!
