I've seen a few episodes of the first season and a few here and there of the following seasons through various online sources to jog my memory because I really haven't seen the show since USA's USAM block in the early 00s. I grew up watching it alongside Fraiser back in the 90s as well.
I prefer the first season over the rest of the series and I believe the first season alone deserves a DVD set. There's a lot of dark humor that wasn't present on TV during that time period, which is probably why it had trouble securing an audience. The one full episode I have on DVD-R consists of John brooding over his birthday and the bus station being held at gunpoint.
