    I read the news this morning that'sd so cool. I love Diffrent World ever since I saw it on TBS a few years ago. So UrbanWorks is distrubting this huh? Are all Casey Werner shows on a show by show basis so they basically aren't distributed by one company? Dosen't UrbanWorks do Fat Albert as well? I haven't heard any other shows this company has done? Have they done a good job so far on Albert? Do you think they will they do a good job on this?

    Can't wait, I love A Different World, I think it's a much better show than the Cosby Show. Glad it's getting released [​IMG]

    Here George from tvshowsondvd.com

    The Cosby Show
    A few weeks ago we told you that you can soon "Hang with the Huxtables on DVD", but we didn't know much at the time. Within the past few days, it came to our attention that Urbanworks had aquired The Cosby Show DVD rights, and they were planning a release later this year. The problem was that there were various online retailers, including DVDPlanet.com, who were starting to list this title, but at two different dates!

    We've now confirmed that August 2nd is the correct date for this release, not the May 24th date that other e-tailers are reporting. $49.99 is the SRP for the set, which will have 4 DVDs containing every episode from the first season.

    Urbanworks will have complete details later this week, so stay tuned for that and cover art as well. Our thanks to various readers who spotted the online listings for the show and alerted us.

    Diffrent World
    Urbanworks is expected to make a formal announcement later this week, but online e-tailer DVDPlanet.com let the cat out of the bag yesterday with their pre-order listing for A Different World - Season 1. A 4-DVD set, according to the retail organization, it is shown to arrive on August 30th for a cost of $39.95 SRP (but DVDPlanet is currently selling it for $27.97).

    It's about time, The Cosby Show is one of the best ever. I'm glad they got the ball rolling here.

    Who are Urbanworks, and what is their track record? Are they a Shout Factory, a Lion's Gate, or somewhere in the middle?

    This is great news to finally hear. I'm looking forward to both, but A Different World especially. I love that show, especially after season one. I figured it wouldn't be released before The Cosby Show, so I'm really glad that we got news on both series.

    Concerning UrbanWorks, I have one tv related dvd released by them: Streetball: The And1 Mix Tape Tour, Season 1. It's a series that has aired for three years on ESPN, UrbanWorks released the first season set, though season 2 was released by Ryko Distribution. The season one set consisted of 8 half hour episodes on one disc, and a bonus disc of an actual full-length streetball game, along with ESPN promos and commercials featuring the players. One release is not much to go on, but I'm not worried about UrbanWorks doing a job worthy of these releases. We'll get to see how they handle the Fat Albert set due next month.

    I'm all over The Cosby Show. I want to get all seasons up through season five, but I'll probably buy them all because I'm a completist.

    Can't wait for Cosby Show--never seen ADW so I'm not sure if I'll pick it up. Maybe I'll wait till I find some time to see some episodes on TBS or if it ever shows up on Nick at Nite.

    Right Angela....
    To be perfectly honest, I think the show improved drastically after the first season (after Lisa Bonet and Marisa Tomei left the show).

    I agree, but I would still enjoy the first season as well. It went from "B-" to "A" grades at that point. After a certain couple tied the knot in later seasons (I hope that was spoiler-free enough), it went back down to a B or B+, but was still better than a lot of TV at the time.

    In my humble opinion, of course!

    I really don't know yet, Jim. I'll probably find out when the rest of you do.
