Release the remaining seasons of A Different World & Living Single on DVD

The claim that there aren't enough A Different World fans to justify releasing Seasons 2-6 of the show on DVD is blasphemy. Granted Season 1, did not do as well as other seasons, but once Debbie Allen took over, the show made a light years leap in quality. Debbie was not only drawing from her experiences as a Howard University alum, she had the writing staff take an annual trip to Atlanta's Spelman College and talk to students, faculty and administrators about the issues they dealt with. It's interesting to note that Seinfeld and Roseanne, Top 10 shows that were on during the same decade as A Different World have been fully released on DVD, but A Different World tackled topics such as date rape, homelessness, Black history, interracial dating, HIV/AIDS, the Gulf War, and so much more....and no DVD release. Its not fair that we fans should be penalized because Season 1 didn't do well.  Ask yourself this: Were you as good at running when you were 1 as opposed to age 6?

Also, Living Single, another quality African-American show with Top 10 ratings, is in the same predicament as A Different World. Both of these shows were positive influences to people all around the world, so because of supposed poor sales of Season 1 of both shows, we are forced to be punished without the rest? Ask yourself this: Was your speech as good at age 1 as opposed to age 6?
