Different World Fanatic
I'm trying to find the entire Different World Series. I recently purchased the entire series from a place called TVDVDPlanet... but they didn't have all episodes on all 20 disc. ALthough they came close, the most important episode with the upstage wedding was missing! I cried, kicked, screamed for that episode!The best episodes are the Dwayne-Whitley Drama's. The chemistry between them is great!
I'll try to upload what I do have to You tube I have the series but I'm missing the wedding! Can any one help a sista out! I need that wedding crash!

A Different World on You Tube
Hi I was wondering if anyone managed to find a different world on You Tube. My searches come up with the same 3 or 4 episodes
#13 - Emily - 06/18/2008 - 05:36
Did you get the refund from tvdvdstore.com?
I wish I would have looked at this comment wall first before ordering from tvdvdstore.com. I didn't receive my order yet for "A Different World" but seeing this makes me not want the dvds. I just wanted to know did the company repay you back. Question: Is tvdvdworld.tv a legit company to order my "A Different World" DVDs?
#14 - Victoria - 06/22/2008 - 12:34

Do NOT order anything from these charlatans. They are a China based company who represent themselves as being US based. There product is shoddy dvdrs, not even dual layer. They refuse to answer emails even though I had discs that were faulty. Avoid them like the plague. Don't be tempted. I was and am now over $100US out of pocket.
#18 - Ivan - 08/05/2008 - 17:57
DvdDonkey & dvdavenue SCAMS!!!
dvddonkey and dvdavenue are fake!!! These sites are both scams and if u would just type those two in about their illegal activity you will find they are linked together and will make fraudulent purchases on your card.
As much as we LOVE this show, don't be fooled and desperate..MAYBE we'll fall upon all the seasons at legit places one day... :(

Sign the petition to bring A Different World on DVD
Dont be fooled by the bootleggers out there selling A Different World series. I got sucked into it and its not worth the money they get out of you.
First Look Studios has the rights to the episodes of A Different World but wont release it because they dont believe its financially profitable to them.
Sign the petition and prove them wrong. With enough votes, I can send it to the studio headquarters and Bill Cosby, also, to bring awareness to how many people love that show!
#22 - Janai Robinson - 06/15/2009 - 19:26
i am also a fan,n wud love to add all ov a different world seasons to my collection.PLEAZ HLP ME!!!

A DIFFERENT WORLD DVD SET
I bought the series on dvd as a set from one of the online stores (before I read this of course) and I got my dvds promptly. 11 out of 19 discs worked all the way thru and the last season isn't even complete. I had also been looking around for the dvd set for awhile and NO one has them. I have just accepted this as a loss and know next time not to do it again. Before I ordered I even emailed them to ask why they were so cheap and they promptly responded assuring me everything was 100% guaranteed, thats the only reason why I did it..never again
#24 - VERY DISAPPOINTED - 06/26/2009 - 16:40
BIG FAN OF A DIFFERENT WORLD AND DUPED BY INTERNET
I have been searching for the complete series for a while now and order from tvplanet and received the complete series (so i thought) until i started watching it and notice many episodes were missing especially the wedding and when Whitley tortured DWAYNE while he was dating KENU. And come to find out like 5 discs did not work properly. The site said it would replace default dvds but never responded to any of my emails. DON'T PURCHASE FROM THESE SITES THEY ARE SCAMS REPEAT SCAMS. I WILL MAKE THIS A PROJECT TO FIND ALL THE EPISODES AND PUT ON DVD. IF EVER SOMEONE FINDS THE COMPLETE SERIES NOT FAULTY PLEASE LET US KNOW. ALSO SIGN THE PETITION I HOPE IT WORKS!

Bad Different world Videos
Do not buy the videos from TVDVDWarehouse. I fell for the low price and did not do my homework. They are copies off the Oxygen channel. Some do not play and constantly stop. Almost all disks are scratched. I wish I had read the comments before purchasing.
#31 - dwayne - 02/09/2010 - 18:10
I'm glad I didn't order the full set. I wOuld've been very pissed off about being cheated out of my hard earned money.

A Different world series from tvdvdbonanza.com
PLEASE do NOT purchase the set from tvdvdbonanza.com!!! There is no return address and I am waiting for a response to my email sent to the company.
I ordered the set and received it, but noticed the following issues:
1. Some of the discs are blank
2. They are recorded from Oxygen
3. Fuzzy picture
4. Missing episodes
5. Episodes out of order
6. COMMERCIALS exist on some discs
I wish I was attentive to some of the comments. SHAME on me.
#38 - Elizabeth Fisher - 03/16/2010 - 17:04
Please sign the petition
It seems to me that we are all looking for these dvds and so many people have gotten scammed that we need to add comments to the petition to let the folks holding the rights to the show know that they are losing money AND credibility! Please go and sign the petition. She needs 1000 signatures and has about 70. We can do this!
#39 - dvdfan! - 03/16/2010 - 20:09
We can do it,
I am going to send the link out and have everyone I know sign it, see if you all can do the same. I am determinded to have these DVDs!

found season 1
I luvd different world ever since i first saw the show. I was so happy to see that in wal-mart the first season of different world was on sale for $5 and then at target $9.99. So i went for the better buy at wal-mart for the first season and its great. But get it while its still on sale. I am still on the hunt for the other five seasons though.
#42 - Juanita - 04/24/2010 - 18:17
I just started watching A Different World on TVONE in January, I have always been a big fan of the show, so I searched online to find the complete season 1-6 like most of you and found a site called BESTDVDENTERTAINMENT whatever you do, DON'T order from them they are a SCAM, I ordered my set on March 25th, I sent numerous emails to them and they never responded nor did i receive my product. I had to contact my bank for them to refund me back my money, If anyone ever finds a real place thats legit plse post it..........
#43 - Dana - 04/30/2010 - 22:31

you can get the 1st season from wal mart for 5.00 usd, they even have a bonus with the cast members discussing the show... (also a bonus episode with tupac and jada pinkett) no luck finding any other seasons though i hope this was helpful
#44 - joan - 07/15/2010 - 21:24
Seems like we need to start with the originator which was Cosby himself.

A Different World DVD
They are not released yet. Anyone that is claiming to have the full 6 seasons does not have the released version and is likely selling a lifted version from TV.
#48 - Nate - 10/10/2010 - 21:06
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE "A DIFFERENT WORLD". AND I'LL GLADLY SIGN ANY PETITION. I ORDERED THE SERIES AND WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT GETTING IT. BUT I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED WHEN I WATCHED THEN AND THEY WERE RECORDED OFF OF OXYGEN. I PAID ABOUT $60. FOR IT. I REALLY WANT ALL SEASONS. I LOVE TO WATCH THEM OVER AND OVER.
#49 - IONESA - 10/12/2010 - 23:05
BOTTOM LINE PEOPLE GO THROUGH AMAZON...A LEGIT PLACE...DONT GO THROUGH THESE LITTLE SHADY COMPANIES BECAUSE THEY WILL RIP U OFF!!!
#50 - Diana - 12/30/2010 - 22:19
I too feel your pain. I have been searching for the other seasons. I never liked the first season. It really did not get good until the Dwayne and Whitley thing started. I watch on YOU TUBE longing to have the REAL dvds. WOW. I wish the company would consider releasing them. I encourage all of you to contact the company and request the release of the other seasons.
#51 - Georgia Girl - 02/08/2011 - 19:47
l bought A Different World from DARKHUBSERIES and received 19 DVDs with the entire wedding scenes missing and about 15 episodes missing. l contacted them and they kept promising to send the replacements till now.
#52 - uzoamaka - 02/08/2011 - 22:04
Want this series badly
I can't believe no one will release this whole set on dvds. You can buy Fresh Prince but not this? I loved this show, watched it when it was originally on, then when it was shown again on various channels around the year 2000, then again around 2005 or so. I wish someone would either put it back on the air, or put it out on dvds. I learned so much from this show, plus I long for the whole retro look. Those kids were great! Where can we find out about a petition>

waiting for dvd's
I too love different world. And wonder why the studio is holding out on putting the dvd\'s out. I\'ve seen less than tv shows with dvd\'s out. I love beautiful black women....with their attitude,confidence, corky,smart, always not so sure,loud and shy ways. This show had them all.
#60 - JC - 03/20/2012 - 12:36
