    I faintly remember watching this show during its original run (I was pretty young) and loved it. I tried looking up info on it but most websites I found were either down or long outdated. Any word on a possible DVD release? Any interest in a possible DVD release?!

    Interest? I'd have an interest depending on price. If it was a show in the $40-$50 a season range I'd buy it.

    I was wondering if any information about a season release of Tour Of Duty has been released or rumored? Would love to have this series in my collection as I still watch it on The History Channel. I signed a petition long ago and perhaps others may also want to sign it in order to show at least that it still has support.

    I wonder if this show has some music rights issues. I remember that they used Paint It Black as their theme song, but can't remember if they used any original artist music during the show.

    There was a LOT of great music on Tour of Duty, so I imagine that this would be a big problem. When they showed the series on TNT, Paint It Black was replaced by different music.

    Needless to say, I'd buy it.

    On the History Channel, it had the complete unaltered version of the beginning. (Paint It Black)
