  • How exciting. I would prefer the other seasons though. The show got a lot better when Denise left. Thanks for the heads up.

  • I was actually thinking the other night while looking at an episode why this show isn't already out on DVD. That and 227 but thats another story. So to echo the previous comment, thanks for the heads up. I can't wait.
