Anyone know if this is on tv anywhere, cable or ??? Every other show is now on DVD...why isn't this one???

Unbelieveable That This Show Is Not Out Yet!!!
It is absolutely mind-boggling that LA Law is not out on DVD yet. Every other mindless show is out, yet the best drama series in television history sits in some studio collecting dust and not even a thought with studio executives.

Same Craziness Extends to Not Releasing "The Practice" DVDs
Why aren't they releasing The Practice as DVDs? That's another outstanding legal drama, beside LA Law.

Where's the LA LAW!!!
Still waiting for the DVD release. What up?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Give us the DVD series, already! I have yet to see a television series that even closely rivals that of LA LAW.

L.A. Law - the TV series
I totally agree with all the above comments. my husband and i have been waiting forever for this to come out on DVD and don't understand why it's not. I was a hugely popular show, on for a whole bunch of seasons, and far less appealing/less popular stuff abounds on dvd.
what's the story here?
#10 - Kendra Brown - 02/13/2008 - 15:10
Give us L A Law on DVD!!!!!
It is about time for LA LAW to be released on DVD!
Why has it not been released yet?
It was only the best legal series of all time,besides the Paper Chase.
Release LA LAW now!!

A friend says Boston Legal is a spin off of L. A. Law. I say it's a spin off of The Practice. Who's correct?
#12 - Marilynn Dietze - 04/23/2008 - 22:07
Give us the series on DVD!!!
I can't agree more with the comments of others -- it's HIGH time to release the 8 seasons of 'L.A. Law' on DVD. Look at the other mindless tripe that's been released, and it's a crime(pun intended)that this show hasn't been. In my opinion, it's one of the three best dramas in TV history, along with 'The Fugitive'(season 1 of which is out, and I have both editions); and 'The West Wing'(I have all 7 seasons). If this is about legal wrangling, settle it out of court, counselors -- and release the DVDs!!

All kind of series are available on DVD, so why not L.A. LAW? The same goes for St. Elwere

This is currently running on the American Life Network which my Cable company finally got.
#25 - Jim - 04/21/2009 - 02:04
A box set perhaps?
Perhaps the delay in releasing this dvd is because they are compiling a complete box set to start with, instead of the usual drib and drab individual season releases.

THE GREATEST SHOW EVER!
I love this show (Richard Dysart and Diana Muldaur - need I say more?!). Does any of you have "E! True Hollywood Story: L.A. Law"? I have the 100th Episode Celebration, and I would love to do some trading.
All my best,

One of my favorite shows of all time...
Like many of you who have posted here, I too have been patiently waiting for YEARS for this show to come out on DVD. It is one of my absolute favorite shows of all time, and it wasn't just me who thought so -- it was HUGELY popular in the late '80s and early '90s, which is why I'm BAFFLED that it isn't out on DVD yet. All my searching of the Internet turns up NO CLUE as to when or if it will ever be released on DVD. They have all this other crap out on DVD, yet this show which goes down in history as one of the most popular shows EVER is not out yet?! Extremely frustrating!!!
#31 - Paul - 07/02/2009 - 01:30
LA LAW DVD PLEASE!
i have been waiting forever for the release of this series. I was only 9 when I knew about this series, but because of my youth and lack of understanding on legal terms I could not understand the show thus didn\'t watch it. However, I learned to appreciate it only when I was 15, when i was more matured to comprehend the terminologies and vocabularies used given the fact i came from a non-native english speaking country. Please release the DVD of this show now that I am ready to understand everything. No other courtroom drama appealed to me after LA LAW and really want to see this from its pilot till its finale.
#32 - shulien - 07/02/2009 - 23:51
Truly one of the benchmark television series of all time and some of the best dialogue and acting EVER! Bring it to life already; the kids these days need some culture- and its not like they're gonna read books. LA Law. Please and thank you.
#33 - jeff - 07/04/2009 - 09:43
Down under we love it too!!!
Hi guys, I'm from Argentina and never missed an episode of this great serie. I hope the DVD's release comes soon, because here you canīt find it in any cable channel.
#34 - Raul Avellaneda - 08/05/2009 - 16:29
Can't be money related
There is no way that LA Law's lack of release on DVD is money related. Whoever owns the rights has to understand that almost no cost for LA Law fans - such as my self - is ridiculous. The Box Set release of LA Law to DVD or Blue Ray (please Chaca Zulu) would instantly shatter all DVD sales records. Talk about throwing money out the window...
#35 - Mike - 08/14/2009 - 08:46
L.A. Law : Superb T.V. Legal Drama WHERE'S THE DVD???
This was the best T.V. legal Drama ever made. If this was to come out on DVD I'm sure it would make a killing. I love this T.V. drama. Can we start some kind of petition to get the ball rolling for this to come out on DVD? Please advise
#36 - Titocordero - 08/20/2009 - 22:40
I finally got LA LAW on DVD!!!
I bought the entire series on a site called ioffer - it's like eBay.
It was recorded from television and burned to DVD without commercials. All episodes are in order, all organized. It's AWESOME!!! I just started watching them and it's like going back in time. That show is from the 80's and is better than shows on tv today. Hands down it's the best law related show ever. I got tired of waiting for them to release it. I'm still puzzled as to why they haven't yet. Anyway, this is a great alternative, cost about $55, including shipping, for the ENTIRE RUN of the show, every episode and every season; 36 disks. Several people out there have the series for sale.
#37 - James - 09/15/2009 - 15:38
I like this show so much that I set my alarm to go off at 4am so I could watch it on FLO TV on my cell phone. Unfortunately, that's the only way I'll ever get to see it. I'd buy every season were it available. This ground-breaking show set the stage for all law dramas that came after. The characters were real, some more likable than others; however, the show's writing set it above the rest and is superior to anything currently on television. With all of the sub-par shows out on DVD, it's unthinkable that this incredibly acted and written (some shows written by David E. Kelley) drama is unavailable on DVD. The only thing that IS available is the reunion movie, which seems incredibly out of place.
#38 - MJ - 09/25/2009 - 21:59
There has to be a way of finding out when its going to be released! I have tried to find out when it going to be released but have come against a brick wall.
#39 - kelly - 10/15/2009 - 14:34
Please someone who knows someone we need this complete series on DVD...........
#40 - Katherine - 11/24/2009 - 14:39
LA Law Please Release this Great Show on DVD
I Don't know who is holding up the release but please stop holding it up! Is it Bochco? Terry Louise Fisher? or FOX???
The only place you can see this great show now is on a tiny network owned by the Moonies! and not available on any mainstream cable provider! Its outrageous....lawyers man are holding up this great show about lawyers!
#41 - MDH - 02/12/2010 - 23:07
THANK GOD FOR VHS
ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK GOD I TAPED THE ENTIRE SERIES AND REUNION MOVIE OF 2002. YES ALL 8 SEASONS HAVE BEEN RECORDED EITHER FROM NBC AND A&E. IT'S GREAT TO POP A TAPE AND WATCH THEM.
BUT I TOTALLY AGREE, WHEN THE HECK IS THE SHOW COMING OUT ON DVD!?!?!?!? COME ON BONCHO, FISCHER OR FOX.....MAKE EVERY ONE HAPPY AND YOU MORE MONEY!!
#42 - HENRY - 02/18/2010 - 18:43
I thought for sure that by now LA Law would be on DVD but after searching all my sources I decided to check on line. When is LA Law scheduled for release on DVD? Why is such a good series being held back?
#43 - George - 03/18/2010 - 10:51
Just release L. A. Law already
Just release L. A. Law already, so I can have a great x-mas gift for my girlfriend.
#44 - Bob K. - 08/14/2010 - 09:34
I think it must arrive on DVD someday, but all the fans and subsequent potential buyers will all be deceased at that point. Thankfully I have the best of the early seasons on vhs along with Moonlighting.
#45 - Numbuh4 - 09/20/2010 - 17:17
I took a chance and "friended" Harry Hamlin on Facebook and asked if he knew if/when LA Law was on DVD. Would you believe he actually friended me back and told me "LA LAW WAS NEVER PUT OUT ON DVD AND HE DOES NOT KNOW WHY" so stop looking people, it's nowhere on dvd right now...I was so disappointed!!!!!
#46 - LIN - 11/19/2010 - 01:44
So there is obviously a lot of interest (on this site alone) in LA Law being released on DVD. I wish I could get my long awaited fix of at least the first 6 seasons (that last 2 were mediocre at best. I am very envious of those that can still watch on their local line up present day.
Who's cage do we have to rattle to get the DVD release ball rolling here???

3)Rhyme & punishment #1302D
