This was a great TV show that needs a DVD release worldwide.
2 April 2011 | by jojoclown241See all my reviews

Encore, Encore was a very funny show. The cast were brilliant, especially Nathan Lane and Joan Plowright who were perfect for their roles. The stories were all hysterical and they always made me laugh out loud.

Its such a shame that great shows like this get cancelled before they are really allowed to shine, while lesser shows somehow manage to get picked up for more seasons.

Can somebody please get the powers that be who own the rights to Encore,Encore to release this TV gem on DVD, and I don't just mean in the USA. I live in Great Britain and would love to own a region 2 copy if this show was ever allowed a DVD release.

If not, then at least lets have it back for reruns on the TV.
