    My friend who works at Image Entertainment says he is currently working on a DVD release of "Hearts Afire", starring John Ritter and Markie post. I don't know anything more but thought I would share.

    I hope your friend is right it was a pretty good show, better than it was treated by the network that had it, CBS? I wonder if it will hit before we see Markie Post on a Night Court DVD.

    Was this even on for a full season? I remember the title, but nothing about the show.

    Larry.P - What does your friend at Image do? I hope this is true. Season 1 was EXCELLENT! A very well written season and the steamy scenes between John and Markie was so good! I hope they have all the original music.

    I missed the first seasons and guess I caught it at the end. I really liked it and was upset it was cancelled.

    Billy Bob Thornton was great on this show. And the rest of the supporting cast was excellent as well.

    There is one episode, forgot the premise, but I often said it was the funniest sitcom episode ever. Haven't seen it in years.

    With the announcement of this coming as a complete series I'm hoping it means that we'll also see creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason's other series make it to complete sets such as Designing Women and the woefully ignored Evening Shade. If they could manage to get Women Of The House & Filthy Rich out, too I'd be thrilled.

    I believe that show may be owned by Sony. When I get a chance, I'll pop an episode in and look.

    Jay's comment was from 2005, when there was a chance that some older shows would be carried in stories.
    At this point, there's almost no chance of finding a classic show carried in a brick and mortar store, and finding them on a store's website isn't very likely, either.
