    From tvshowsondvd.com I can't wait for this to come out. I knew it would come out sooner or later so I wasn't worried but this is awesome news. This is probably one of my favourite comedies of all time. I haven't seen the first season since it first aired this is great.

    After announcing cool titles from Carsey-Werner like Roseanne and 3rd Rock From The Sun, Anchor Bay Entertainment continues to come on strong with their distribution deal, targeting Grounded For Life next. Donal Logue (currently seen occassionally as "Chuck" on ER) and Megyn Price (previously seen on LateLine) star as Sean and Claudia Finnerty, a couple who were parents right out of going to high school together.

    Fiery red-headed daughter Lily, 14, is the oldest of three children and causes the most trouble for her parents (who can still sympathize with her more than they want to, being in their early 30s themselves). Younger sons Jimmy and Henry cause trouble, too, but Grandpa Walt (Richard Riehle, memorable for his gropes in the first episodes of Ally McBeal) has their number ("Oh, there WILL be spankings!"). Besides, none of the kids are as immature as Sean's brother Eddie (Kevin Corrigan), a ne'er-do-well twenty-something guy who's unemployed but makes his way with an odd combination of mooching and doing shady deals.

    The series started out on the Fox Network, and after a couple of seasons moved to The WB for three more seasons. Now Anchor Bay is prepping the first season of the show for DVD release. No word yet on when it will hit, but if it misses the end of this year, then it shouldn't be too long into the new year before this fun sitcom hits the stores. We can't wait!

    This is very exciting news. I was a fan of the show during its first 2 seasons on FOX, but didn't watch it after it started on WB. Hopefully the release is sucessful so that all 5 seasons can be released. (all 91 episodes)
