    I am interested in obtaining all episodes of this sitcom. I have been unsuccessful in finding them anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas on where I should look?

    Airs: Wednesday 8:00 PM on Showtime (25 mins)
    Status: Ended
    Premiered July 1, 1984
    Show Category: Comedy

    Lou, Joe, and Cliff Waters are three brothers living in south Philadelphia. The older brothers receive the shock of their lives when youngest brother Cliff runs away from the altar on what is supposed to be his wedding day. His reason: he's gay.

    Lou is the oldest and a construction worker. He insists that someone talked Cliff into being a homosexual. Middle brother Joe is a former pro football player who runs a restaurant, is overprotective of teenage daughter Penny, and tries to maintain peace between his two brothers. Cliff is the youngest brother. He frequently finds himself in arguments with his brothers and with his best friend, flamboyantly gay writer/editor Donald Maltby.

    Hello!
    I've been a fan of the show for a long time and back in February, I contacted Showtime to see if it was ever going to be released on DVD...

    Then on June 19th I recieved an email from Showtime...
    Subject
    Is your series "Brothers" available on DVD?

    I've not had much luck either. I only have one episode, Moving Out and the quality is ok, but not great. I know that Brandon has some episodes, though not sure how many. I've seen clips of them on his website. I only have the one cause his son Garett is in it. Sadly, I never had Showtime during the time the show aired. Good luck finding them and let us know if you do.

    I have about half of the episodes.  The quality is ok.  I would love to find the half I don't have to get the entire series.  Anyone want to trade?

    Hi Guys,

    I have just created a petition for Showtime to bring this wonderful series on DVD. It is so frustrating that they don't pay proper respect to this series and allow it's millions of fans to purchase and enjoy it. Please be among the first people to sign this petition, and hopefully we can get the ball rolling on this! Also, please tell your friends to sign this petition too, hopefully with enough signatures, we can get them to change their mind on this. Here is the petition address, and thanks!

    Hey guys:

    Funny I have at least 15 VHS tapes with 6 episodes a piece of the reruns when the show was being broadcasted 2 episodes a night on old KOFY-20 here in San Francisco. Of course they are edited for commercial tv. I have not watched the tapes, they are sitting in my garage in a huge plastic container, in over 16 years! I just got a DVD-R for my tv.

    I recorded the shows from Showtime when they aired but am missing most of season 2 and 3. (3 vhs tapes). I have just started converting them to DVD, and while the quality is fair (it was my first VHS machine) they are watchable.

    Do you have season 2 and 3?
