It's only available through Canada or amazon.ca. No special fatures, just a cheaper re-issue.

Excellent! It's been worth the wait. I would like to purchase the entire boxed 3-6 seasons, if made available.

I am more than willing to agree that "Gimme a Break!" is very much worth waiting for! However, I have not heard anything recently about any plans to release any more seasons on DVD. Does anyone reading this know if this is anywhere in the works?

Yes, VEI will be releasing season 3 sometime in 2009.

Even though my threads are still not getting responses, I am happy to see that the board as a whole is getting some action! Maybe if Season 3 eventually gets released, that will help to stimulate even more conversation. If you look down a few threads, you will come to one by me called "Monica and Pheobe". As of now it has twenty-one views and zero responses. This could be because it had to do with an episode from Season 3 and to most people those episodes are out of site, out of mind! However, if the DVD finely comes out, maybe more people will be refreshed about this and other episodes and will want to tell us what they think!

Subject: Gimme A Break Season 3


To Whom It May Concern:

I just wanted to send an email requesting seasons 3-6
of Gimme A Break! be released on DVD. I imagine the
reason why season 3 hasn't been released is due to the
sales of the first two seasons. I think a reason why
is that the first two seasons of Gimme A Break! are
not the Gimme A Break! most people think of. There
were drastic changes to the series after season 2,
including new writers, producers, and cast members. I
think people best remember Gimme A Break! for the
later seasons with Joey Lawrence, Thelma Hopkins and a
much better theme song. I believe if the later
seasons were released, you would see a drastic rise in
DVD sales.

VEI'S RESPONSE:

I appreciate your analysis on the show. We have every intention to
release
the remaining seasons.
It's only fair to continue the future releases. VEI is not like the
other
studios for incomplete seasons out in the marketplace.
Season 3 is scheduled for release in 2009. Please keep checking in for
any
release updates or visit www.tvshowsondvd.com.
Sincerely
VEI


In the recent past, I have not heard any news about any more seasons of this series being released on DVD. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who knows something that I do not! Also, I do not know of any cable or sattelite networks that show syndicated episodes of this series. Bummer!

I thought we would hear an announcement at the beginning of the year. We're now in February and I haven't heard any more news on Season 3 coming to dvd. It is THE prime season of the show, in my opinion. It includes the introduction of Addy and Joey. And contains my FAVORITE episode where Nell & Addy go to New York after winning on Wheel Of Fortune. Really wish it would be released soon.

After reading your first sentence, I thought that I was finaly seeing something sensable posted by you! But sure enough, in your second and last sentence, you reverted back to you old ways! Typical and highly predictable!

I am bringing this thread to the top just for one reason! I would like to know who besides me is very anxious for more seasons to come to DVD?

Definitely me! I want the rest of the series on DVD. I have the series recorded from reruns. But I'd love the complete episodes in DVD quality. Plus, I love Andy Gibb so I'll be so excited to have Season 3 on dvd for the episode where Julie stalks Andy Gibb. He was so cute!

UPDATE: I just checked amazon.ca and it seems both the first and second seasons are no longer in stock. I wish VEI would at the very least give some sort of explanation as to what happened with the show on dvd. We've waited a long time and have supported both releases.
