    The creator/producer Alan Spencer is trying to swing a release of Sledge Hammer on DVD. It's early days and at the moment he's just trying to see if there's enough demand, or at least convince certain studios that there's enough demand.

    There's an official website http://www.sledgehammeronline.com
    plus a Yahoo group through which various campaigns are being organised.

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sledgehammer3/

    Currently, he's trying to get as many people as possible to add comments to the shows entry at imdb.com

    http://us.imdb.com/Title?0090525

    So, if you wanna see a release of this series on DVD join the cause! He's even in talks at the moment on the possibility of a Sledge Hammer movie!

    I think he's got his work cut out. I see that the website in your link described the show as "cult". That normally means that no-one watched it :D

    I wonder if Alan Spencer would be trying so hard if he didn't stand to make a lot of money out of a DVD relaese

    Used to love Sledge Hammer but I'm not sure I would like it the same nower days. Best left with the memories I think.

    I think Sgt. Colon is right - for instance, many children's TV programmes, which I loved as a kid, are a let-down when I watch them now (eg The Flumps!). The nostalgia is better than the real thing.

    I used to find it quite amusing in the twilight hours of so long ago. It'd be helpful to see it on a digi channel so's to guage it now for safety's sake at least - definitely a memory giggler.

    Used to love American Gothic. I'd also like to see Space Above and Beyond get a release. Oh, oh Mr Peasley, and Brimstone:)

    I don't think many people watched that when on the TV otherwise it wouldn't have been moved quite so quickly to it's midnight slot.

    Yea, I remember watching it at about one o'clock in the morning on ITV "Nightscreen" (or something like that!)... I remember it being pretty funny, but I was only 12 at the time! :D

    I really liked "Space Above & Beyond". A real shame it got cancelled, especially as series one ended on a real cliff-hanger if I remember rightly! :mad:

    Space Above and Beyond got quite a few viewers actually and was repeated a few times to boot, so not quite the duffer Mr Skidd. Grrr.:)

    And colour me shocked, Lex, only 12 and up at 1a.m.? No wonder you're so streetwise!!
