Yes, This is a wonderful Series!
11 June 2008 | by jodyscottSee all my reviews

I loved this series as a youngster and as a not so youngster. I tried to find it on DVD for rent or sale before looking it up on IMDb. I wish they would put it out on DVD. I remember being in grade school and when it rained or snowed we would gather in the gymnasium and watch The Outsiders (not all the time, but Outsider days were my fave). Of course, it was the coolest thing out there. The original movie was so cool but then to come along and follow with TV episodes. I was so excited. Then it turned out to be a great series. I was very disappointed when it ended.

I believe sales would be extremely high due to the topic/title and the actors. Can someone please rub elbows with some exec. and persuade them to release this on DVD!?!
