where can I find this show on DVD
11 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been trying for several years to find this show on DVD. The only sites I've found only list the episodes, but give no indication of having it on DVD.

I remember watching this when it was first on TV, and thinking that it was cut short before it had a chance to get a good start.

I wonder when the networks will figure out that shows like "cop rock" or "pink lady and jeff" should never have been created and shows like this should at least be given a chance.

I will never understand why shows like "crusade", "firefly" and "surface" and, yes," holmes and yoyo" are allowed to disappear when they have potential to be decent shows.
