    There are a couple of collected editions of The Wonder Years out there, and they're real cheap.
    Check these out:
    The Best Of The Wonder Years
    Holiday Episodes
    I don't know though if they'll ever release season sets of this great show though.

    I loved this show too - I felt like I really connected with what Kevin Arnold was going through...

    I'd buy a season boxset without a thought!

    Me too, I would buy a season-by-season boxset immediately.

    I have heard that the existing DVDs are pretty terrible, with very little care taken during both audio and video transfer.

    Although I have not seen them myself, it's reported that the studio lost almost all music rights, and the songs in the episodes were replaced with far less effective music, considering music played such an important role in the story.

    "The Wonder Years" is just about my favorite television show. There are two DVDs available. I got them for $8.00 each, and I feel like I wasted my money. Phong is absolutely correct.

    I would pay dearly to see this wonderful series done right on DVD!

    I hope this show makes it to dvd. I know I would be there first day to buy every season-by-season set that was available because this is one of my favorite t.v. shows of all time. Peace

    Ya, the music rights is probably what's holding it back more then anything.....

    I love the show and would certainly love to own them all on dvd, but there's no way I would buy it if the music was changed especially since it's on two times a day 5 days a week (and easily recorded with my Tivo).

    I have both of the existing LaserLight discs. The quality is not horrible-ish to me. Couldn't tell a difference between it and a broadcast, really...except no commercial interuptions. Of course, I don't have a HT system. Just a 30" Stereo Panasonic.

    I'd kill for a season-by-season box set, though! Bring it on!

    But if you can find the existing discs for under $10, then they're not bad as a "fix" until we get the real thing. I would just hate to encourage "best of" releases, though (I got these in my DVD 'youth').
