In a 1992 interview with the Associated Press Meek says, "I don't want it to be another action show or a Hollywood version of the Japanese perspective," he said. "I want to pay homage to the culture. I want to be accurate. I want Japanese people to listen to my Japanese and go, 'Wow! He doesn't have an accent!' I've been working on these things. Raven embodies "bushido," a Japanese term that embraces warrior spirit and Zen consciousness. And as an actor, I'm trying to convey the human conflicts of an almost superhuman type character."

I loved the 90's. That was my era. Everything about it was the best; the music, the movies, the fashion, and the T.V. series. One of which was my favorite: Raven. It was so enjoyable & entertaining. The cast for this series were timeless. Jeff Meek was great, as was Lee Majors. They really had something going on with this hit. My Friends & I would all get together at another friends house to watch it. Unfortunately, It was cut short. Dropped by the network, banished from the public eye. I realize that it's probably been too long now to ask why, and the political side to the story would probably be a bit ugly. But what I would really like to know is this; why has it not made it onto DVD format yet? My plea is probably falling on deaf ears, but if someone who can make this work is listening out there.... Please bring this classic back to life. Please bring it to DVD.
