    I'm assuming Fox owns the rights to put the 13 episodes on dvds. Am I right? If that is the case, then PLEASE Mr. Staddon!! Who else would buy if this were to come out?

    My VHS tapes recorded from TV are worn out. So yes, I'd buy this in a second. [​IMG]

    It is so ironic that this topic was brought up. I was just thinking about how I would be the first in line to buy The Ben Stiller Show on DVD. Some of my favorite bits appeared on this show. I will never forget Andy Dick as the giant floating head in the relaxation tape commercial and Ben Stiller spoofing Metallica's Enter Sandman.

    I hope that whoever holds the license reads this thread. There certainly is demand for The Ben Stiller Show on DVD!

    My favorite bit was Stiller playing Charles Manson as Lassie. I've still got that on tape somewhere...

    Oh yeah! I can't believe I forgot to mention that one! Hands-down, that is my all-time favorite Stiller bit.

    "Manson, come here boy!" I love how he speaks gibberish and everyone knows what he is saying.

    I was just thinking about this show! I watched 'Heatvision and Jack' this weekend and it really made me want to see the Ben Stiller show again!

    Please Peter?

    I've only seen bits of this show, but my favourite part so far is Andre Agassi as a crime-fighting tennis player in "Advantage Agassi" [​IMG]

    Although the show aired on Fox, it was actually produced by HBO. No doubt the DVD will come out through HBO Home Video, and after MR. SHOW and THE SAPRANOS, they certainly know how to treat TV shows on DVD.

    I've never seen the Ben Stiller Show, but I will watch anything he is in. I would buy this set site-unseen.

    The spoof of Husbands and Wives with Frankenstein et al is my favorite piece of sketch comedy of all time. I would definately buy these.
