    I love this show. Martin Lawrence was hilarious. Does any one know if they will ever put this show on dvd. I hope they do it was a great show.

    I think Warner owns the rights to the show.

    Are you sure it isn't FOX that owns the rights to Martin?

    Martin was indeed a FOX show. Although Lawrence himself was a producer, so I don't know if he has part ownership or not.

    If they ever release the sitcom on DVD, you'll find it in the FOX TV section of some video stores.

    I disagree; although it was shown on the Fox network, Martin produced it through HBO and I think Warner owns the rights to it.

    Warner Bros would LOVE to own this show, but they don't; HBO does.

    You're right. I remember the HBO logo in the closing credits. HBO also has their own DVD section in Best Buy and Fry's Electronics stores. [​IMG]

    HBO? It'd be expensive.

    not necessarily.


    isn't Everybody Loves Raymond an HBO product?
    those are pretty reasonably priced.

    Personally I hate Raymond. Unfunny comic, weak and unwatchable sitcom. I felt the same way about Seinfeld and Frasier. The leads are annoying, but the supporting characters are what made those shows ratings hits with the public.

    Perhaps if the show continues to do well on the TV One network it might prompt a release.

    Don't I recall that the female star of the show hated Martin Lawrence and even filed a sexual harrasment charge against him? I think it got so bad she refused to act in scenes with him. Guess that means no commentaries.

    Tisha Campbell, his girlfriend on the show. But commentaries don't have to be done in the same room or at the same time.
