The Wonder Years...will it ever come?

Growing upn in a fairly conservative hopusehold, I remember my family and I sitting down and watching three shows as a family together. One was ST:TNG, which I own. Next was Alf, which is starting to finally see the light of day. Finally, The Wonder Years, one of my favorite shows growing up, it had such an innocence about it, that shows now can't seem to create today.Shows today try and be too crass and vulgar it seems. I believe they did 6 seasons of the Wonder Years. If they would only release these in season sets uncut I'm sure many people would buy them. I would love to show them to my sister who is 9 and never got to grow up with this great stuff. If anybody has any news I would appreciate it. Why hasn't this been released in season sets yet? Please don't tell me its because of the music rights!!!!

Good show and definitely deserves DVD treatment. But there are many others that deserve it more: Batman, Wild Wild West, Addams Family, etc. No doubt that everything will be released eventually, because there is big $$ to be made.

It is true...another great series caught up in music rights hell. I expect we'll see it someday, they worked Freaks and Geeks out and this show has a much bigger following.

Yeah but I suspect Wonder Years music rights are more of a problem because a lot of those musicians have passed away and now the estates of those artists get involved. And rather than want the music to live on through DVD they'd rather get more cash out of the deal

Just a heads up. ABC Family once again has this on their schedule. Unfortunatly it is only 2 episodes per week. Starting this weekend, 12:00 am (eastern) Sunday morning you can see two episodes back to back. They have the first 2 episodes scheduled this weekend and episodes 3 and 4 same time next weekend.
