Does anyone know where I can get the DVD of AMEN or at least does anyone know the Song that the "sisters" sung, "Warden of PS 53"

Does anyone know what "Amen" show in the series has Sherman Hemsley going to a waitress's home for romance, only to find out she is married. She has a closet full of cats, and he hides in there when her husband comes home; he tosses out one cat at a time for the husband to pet. It was one of the funniest shows, but I do not know which one it is. Would like to order it.

HI LOVE THE SHOW ALSO AND WAS WONDERING IF CLIFTON DAVIS DID THE REAL SINGING WHEN HE SANG ON THE SHOW? AND ALSO WHERE ARE THE ACTORS NOW AND WHAT ARE THEY DOING?
#31 - ELAINE VELASQUEZ - 01/20/2010 - 19:02
is the sitcom ever coming back on tv, we don\'t have any African-American films really on tv. If they do decide to show on tv it\'s always late at night and that\'s not right....
#32 - email@example.com - 01/26/2010 - 13:30

I am willing share my copies....
Hey folks. I am willing to share my copies I purchased online from a site called sell.com. I bought it from a seller named topchoices. He was selling them and with shipping it came to be $31.94 for 14 dvd's (recorded with dvr from TV) which contained 107 of the 110 episodes. I have been looking all over the net and stores for this show and it has not been put out for purchase and no one has them for download.I was kind of afraid to be ripped off but I took a chance because my girlfriend loves this show. I bought them and 2 days later it arrived. I was shocked at how it was in the order the episodes aired and it was such great quality. Here is his description. "This is the show that starred Sherman Hemsley. There are 107 out of the 110 episodes on 14 DVD-R disc no artwork/labels, dvds in paper sleeves. Quality around 9 out of 10."
I can verify that it is great quality and yes it is 9 out of 10 in terms of quality. Hey I was blessed enough to come across this great series that has not been put out on official DVD set. It is only missing the last 2 episodes and one other episode that I can tell. Either you can purchase from him for a fair price of $31.94 (includes shipping) or hit me up angel77lopez on yahoo messenger. I am willing to make a copy for someone if they cover the shipping and dvd's cost. I can even show you proof with my web cam or upload somewhere so someone can download. You ask yourself why am I doing this...I just want other black people to enjoy one of there own shows that are not out. The show has great lessons and it's damn funny. Hey I was able to make my lady smile with these dvd's and it meant a lot to me so maybe I can help someone else enjoy them as well.

NO Amen! DVD? WHY????
RIP Sherman. Wish Amen was on DVD. RTV used to show it, but grew too big to pay for the show's rights... so now we miss out on it. I'd buy the whole box set, up front, if it were available in the US or Canada (Region 1)... Just like I did with Gimme A Break!. Shame on someone for holding the rights hostage. This was a GREAT (not good) show. I didn't like the show... I LOVED IT.
