I really miss this one...
8 September 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

It's really sad, that there still is no DVD release of this great series. I never missed an episode. Please, SONY PHE, release this TV-show!!! I guaran-damn-tee you, it will be a BESTSELLER!

It's a shame, that there's only one season. Maybe HARDBALL didn't start at the right time... And when i look at todays shows, i really miss the old days with Charlie & Kaz. So many epic moments, so many LOLs...

And the theme song from Sylvester Levay & Eddie Money: GREAT...and also never released.

If SONY would start e petition, i'd be one of the first to sign it!

If you have the chance to watch this show, don't hesitate. It's worth watching more than once...
