    There's still not been any word on when this will be released. You could consider sending a letter to Paramount Pictures, the production company who owns the show.

    Paramount Studios
    5555 Melrose Avenue
    Hollywood, CA 90038

    I hope they put it on DVD... I want to see some of those crossover episodes that were cut out of syndication.

    You can also register and vote for the DVDs on TVShowsonDVD.com, a site the studios check to see the demand to see shows released on DVD.

    Those are illegal products. They don't have the permission to sell those products.

    Hi .. I believe there are about 2-3 of these bogus dvd sets of Becker floating around and I cannot understand why Paramount will not combat these pirates by releasing the real thing. I fully intend to write to Paramount [thanks for the address] expressing my desires and hope that ALL readers of this forum will write also .. and spread the word. I mean, these studios are almost begging the public NOT to purchase pirated dvds yet these same studios do not release them, especially ones like Becker. I mean, DUH! Thanks for listening.

    I don't think they have a DVD, but they should make one.

    The studios want to make people become eager to buy the DVDs. Also they want to wait until they don't have any other big name shows or movies to compete with.

    I'm one episode short of completing the Becker collection recorded on my PC through a TV tuner card. I even edited out the commercials.

    It doesn't compare to having the full episodes on DVD but it helps me wait until the guys from Paramount decide to release the official DVD series.

    I hope they release it soon. I'm getting tired of watching the show out of order, and I don't know how much longer there going to be showing the reruns. Also, I want to see any deleted scenes, extra episodes, and/or commentaries that they might put on the DVD.

    i really hope this comes out on dvd. one of the few shows i would bother to purchase the whole series since it just gets better every time i see it.

    does anyone know what the episode is where they discuss becker getting into a fight with a man in a wheelchair? it is a "known" fact about him and is made reference to in other episodes including "the usual suspects". i can remember all of the episodes that the police detective refers to when he is talking about the people who would want to trash becker's office, and i know that the man in the wheelchair turns out to be the man that adds the "chico, california" calls in "for whom the toll calls" but i can't remember which is the episode where every body is ragging on becker because he supposedly pushedthe man down a hill causing him to wind up in a wheelchair. john protests that he already was in a wheelchair when he pushed him.
