    You have no idea how many "Critic" petitions I've signed over the years. And I will continue to do my part to get it released. Let's just hope this one works...

    Signed.

    And, on a side note: I keep fearing Comedy Central

    is going to pull the pin on their broadcasts, since

    they keep moving it around, and adding other shows.

    Any news on this title being released on DVD?
    I would think with "niche" shows like Sports Night (which I am grateful for) being released, that The Critic should be coming along!
    Any word from Columbia-TriStar on this?
    How about the producers of the show?
    Puuuuleeese!

    That quote was my default error sound for a long time in Windows.

    So, would this petition be for the entire ABC-Fox-Flash series?

    If so, I'm in. Signed it, with that sentiment in the comments.

    P.S. My brother is named Jay. He was not pleased when the show came out. Think Homer Simpson, "Police Cops."

    I love this show. I watch it on Comedy Central whenever I can. I hate it that The Critic never made it. It was a damn funny show. The musing's of Jay's father always made me laugh.

    When Fox got "The Critic" from ABC (I think), they scheduled the premier of the show on Sunday at 8:30, right after "The Simpsons." On the night in question was the episode where Jay Sherman visits Springfield for the film festival. Groening didn't approve of the idea for the episode but couldn't do anything about it. He thought Fox was whoring out his show to promote another show (although it was a great episode).

    It's weird, despite having a GREAT writing team I never thought the Critic ever found it's place. I really tried to like it (I LOVE the Simpsons for example) but it always bugged me the way it thought it made reference to how "dumb" the Simpsons was (and thus how much more "intelligent" it was), when it wasn't anything too clever itself.
    Anyways, this isn't the place!
    I hope you fans get your show on DVD! (I know frustrating it is when you they won't release your fave show! [​IMG])
